Ahhhhhh, what a difference a warm house and running water make in one's outlook! The little things in life truly do make the most difference. A hot shower. Ahhhh. Pulling clean, dry dishes from the dishwasher. Ahhh!
What else. Today, I'm supposed to meet with my principal and my disgruntled parent. Not feeling good about this one. I know that it will all be fine but it never feels good to be complained about and have to defend yourself. Sigh. I met with my mentor on Monday and we outlined a plan for the future of my writing program. I hope it all goes smoothly. I'm feeling really stressed about it.
I finally worked up the nerve to contact Gander's breeder and let her know that its not working. He just isn't happy here with the lifestyle we are currently able to provide. I HATE it but I can't ignore it any longer. Makes me so sad. So, we're communicating on that but it's not easy.
All the uncertainty about my firebug isn't helping either. I hope we learn the outcome soon. Then I could help to prepare my students and myself for whatever the answer is. I'm not sure when we'll know, however.
Boy, I'm a mix of upbeat and negative today. Hmmmmm.
