Q&E Babble

Okay, I give.   I am doing it.   I miss PPWM too much.

I want to babble.   I think you all want to babble.  So let’s babble here and then go back to PPWM when they finally get us fixed.   I know, it’s discouraging now, but I am too optimistic for my own good.   I do think iVillage will get this mess fixed.   One day. 

For those not on FB, Shelly is monitoring Waylon, debating on a trip to Pitt.   He ran a fever all day yesterday and most of the night.   At her last check in, he’s down to 99.   She’s calling the coordinator this morning.

I had my work party last night.   I took a platter of Jalapeno Cheese Grits.   I have never had 6 people ask me for a recipe before.   I heard they were, “on point” and “ready.”  I love it when I bring the most popular dish.   There wasn’t a scrap left.  

Off to get dressed for work.   As of 3:00 today I am done until January 2nd.   And then I can start counting down for my spring break beach trip.

I hope you are doing better today, Susan.  

Sandy still cannot post.   She tried to log in all day yesterday and again this morning.   Pitiful, just pitiful to lose so many people here.

I am frustrated too.  But, I love this place so I guess I will be the one to take out the trash and turn out the light when the party ends.

Shelly that can't be an easy decision to make especially with Waylon. You need a school that supports you and also is considerate of him and his missing school for labs etc. and with a school having that many students I could imagine he might get lost in the shuffle. Let us know how your interview or whatever goes with them.

I just got home from gymnastics, Evelyn was wild there tonight. The teacher is like some 16 year old who does gymnastics there, that’s cool except she has NO stern tone. So Evey got bored and ran amuck and wouldn’t listen to her so I had to “scold” her. LOL I was pointing my finger and being ghetto but she started listening...

So yeah :-) That’s basically all I have to say.

Night gals!

Kid free tonight !

Sandy I hope you can post soon and please let your Dad know I am Praying for him... Give him an extra hug when you see him.. And WHAT was the big blow work threw you on Friday ????

the rest of my story-  I too was/am  very passionate about kids/school.  I was a very known face in my girls' schools- I chose all their teachers through 5th grade- I worked in the breakfast room and on the playground. I went to every PTO meeting- I was very involved. And when they hit high school John and I didn't like the road Maggie was going down so we moved her to another school- her sisters went also by choice. Well it all back fried on us and she continued down the wrong road. Live and learn =).. 

Oh and Shelly none of our schools have or had a school nurse. 

Good Luck with your decision.

Our schools have no "enforecement" here,like Tracy. I would feel a little better if they did.  I mean the 3 schools in the county and there is one part time nurse for all of them!! I mean I know her and am friends with her and if I had a problem, she would go and check on Waylon i am sure, but still.  It is a big thing, and I am not taking the decission lightly, but I have to do what I feel is best for them. I know you all are only giving your "input" and I really appreciate the friendship we have and that we can weight in on each others decissions :)

Mel ~ Sooooo happy to hear you are now a citizen of Canada!!!!! And Wooo hooo on the shopping. And as for feeling the baby move. .. . I LOVE that feeling!!!!!  

Saw the grandbaby of a friend today and she was soooooo precious. Perfect little round head with like inch and a hlaf long brown hair, less then a month old!!!! AGGGGGG makes me ALMOST want another one LOL

Boys had a 2 hour delay this morning and that always throws my morning routine off, so I didn't get on here earlier.  

Enjoy your evening!!!

I am going to be doing an Bullying support group with our school social worker next year.   She and I are excited about it.   We both work year round (rare in the school system) and are going to plan it out this summer.

I think I do get so passionate about the school stuff because I am part of the system.  Guss nailed a lot of what I am thinking.   The school is NOT taking your kids to raise.   I am in the group that gets the blame over and over and over for stuff that has nothing to do with school.   "My kid got beat up in the park last Saturday, what are you doing about it?"    "Girls are posting nasty stuff on Facebook about my kid, what are you doing about it?"   I get it all day long.   The school cannot be responsible for all things kid-related just because the kids go to school together.   I have yet to work in the school where issues knowingly went on and the school just ignored it.   We do everything we can do to solve known issues.   There are mediations, mediations with court sanctioned mediators, discipline consequences, court terms, schedule changes, escorts, etc.   We might not solve all the world's issues, but we sure do what we can with what we know about.   And with a high success rate at that.  I am a part of the solution and I take my work very seriously, therefore I take it personal.

Shelly, move here.   I'll take care of your boys. 

And I agree with Renee, there is almost always more to the story.  

Sandy emailed me as I was writing this.   Not Authorized to Post over and over again this morning.   I am SO over our girls not being able to be here.  

Daisy, I hope you do get to talk to the nurse and that the cyst is nothing.

Guss, whoo-hoo on David coming home a little earlier than expected.
