Nothing Special

Friday, June 07, 2019

I have been busy with work lately. Closing out a school year and starting the process for summertime office work here is pretty tiring. End of the year faculty meetings, the usual lame faculty event, and setting up new hires as veterans go out the door. Yep, I am all-out but very happy to even have a job at this point.
This last week I edified faculty narratives, the new curriculum and other just plain stuff.

Next week I start editing our handbooks. There are four to do. With new regs about this and that, I know a lot of picky changes will be needed and I am just the amanuensis to do it for the Headmaster.

I am not being very strict about my eating. I think last week's Major Hassle with DD had an effect on my self-confidence. It's like I stop being important in light of her issues. How can you dedicate yourself to your own self-improvement when you feel so diminished? I am working on this with someone and hope that I can make a change but it is a 42-years-old habit to defer to her. Something about being enmeshed, I hear. So I have nothing special to report, as if anyone is reading this.

Faculty meetings are finally over for the year!

    I bet you have new regs about who comes into the school, how, and when. Are you going to be arming yourselves?

    Yup, it's tough to be preoccupied with kid problems and feel our own issues must take a back seat --- but keeping on keeping on in these circumstances is a pretty significant accomplishment so give yourself credit!!!

    so glad you said you're working with someone re:daughter. my son was my difficult kid. depressed, anxious. low self esteem, etc. and medicated himself with alcohol. I was (am) lousy with tough love so I enabled him for too long. long story short; he's 38, married, 2 kids, teacher of kids with autism.
    i'm not trying to be pie in the sky, I know a lot of things fell into place for him and that doesn't happen often.
    what I am saying is "I get it"; the pain, frustration and heartache have been a part of my life and i'm still not able to fully trust him.
    it is a crappy place to be with your own child and i'm praying for you and your daughter.

    HAHAHAHA to the pic!

    My bff FINALLY retired from St George’s this week...after 15 years (part time, though...started out 2 days a week, crept up to 4, which she wrestled back down to 2/3) ...after retiring after 30 years of teaching with me.
    She wasn’t an AA but practically ran the health department.
