"Mom, I promised I studied..."

Abby just said this to me after being in her room for 10, maybe 15 minutes, to study for her social studies test that is tomorrow. By the way, there were 30 pages to study...we shall see...
"Abby, which continents are in the Western hemisphere?"
"Um........Texas..........um........."
"Just stop, Abby. Let me try another one. What is a canyon?"
"Um........tall walls with a river through it?"
"No. Lets try one more. What is a drought?"
"Drought? That isn't one of my vocabulary words. Is it?"
Needless to say, Abby is BACK up in her room and was told not to come down for 30 minutes - at least.
I love homework. Right now, so does Abby! ;)
