I Cannot Stand Her  
All of my suspicions regarding Jen (the woman who will be Teddy's teacher) are true. She is extremely irritating. In such a way that I know she'll be a good, dedicated teacher, but that doesn't mean that I have to like her, does it? She's a mixture of all Hermione's worst qualities, McGonagal's best, with Trewlawy's attitude. Unfortunately (or fortuantely, I suppose, depending on you perspective), Teddy and I are quite a bit alike as far as temperment goes, and I think she'll irritate him too. Luckily he's young and adaptable, so hopefully he will get used to her. I couldn't.

Other than that, it's been a fairly quiet week. I've decided a couple of things. I haven't worked hardly at all since Teddy got here, just the odd job here and there. And I like it that way. So I've decided that once Teddy goes back to school, I'll only work when he's not at home. It's not like I need the money. I'm a photographer because I like to take pictures, which I can do at any old time that I want. Unless I make an appointment with a client, it's not like taking pictures requires regular office hours.

In similar news, I've been contemplating what to do with my house and have finally come up with a solution. At first, I was all for selling it and leasing space downtown for my business, but then I had an idea. The town doesn't have a gallery yet, and is looking to attract more tourism, so I've decided to turn it into a gallery. It wouldn't take much, except a few minor alterations. Maybe downsize the kitchen, but keep it mostly in tact for receptions and the like. I think it would be cool to have a room devoted to WAMAS students art. Excellent for the Family Weekends (there are two a year, one next month, and one in the spring). And I know most of the local artists personally and also know what being on that end of the whole gallery scene is like, so I think it'll be a good addition to the town and an excellent way to use the space. Obviously, I'll have to hire someone to run the day-to-day business, which will be a fairly large chunk but again, money isn't really an issue, so unless we start losing money because of it, I don't care if I make any.

All in all, I'm definitely looking forward to the next few months.

Hopefully she won't be predicting Teddy's demise on a regular basis. *lol*
Is there no other school or teacher that he can have?
The gallery sounds like a fantastic idea!

Nah, not the rubbish predictions part. More the... intensity with which Trewlawny did everything.

Unfortunately, there's not another teacher he could have. It's a very small area. Only three teachers for grades K-5. I wouldn't be opposed to sending him to the local muggle school, but he's a metamorphmagus and he doesn't really control it well yet. So his hair turns random colors depending on his mood, or if he sees something he likes his hair will change to that color. It's really fun to watch him color or paint. His hair always changes to match the color he's working with.
