Lest you worry

9 Oct

Thank you all for your kind concern! Today was a slightly less frenzied day. I started with an 8am meeting that wasn’t — the mom didn’t show up despite having confirmed an appointment with 4 professionals who adjusted their schedules to accommodate her. It’s okay though — I totally understand — sleeping in is important and that has to come first in one’s life.

(I’m not bitter.)

Then school. I had the joy of manning (womanning) our Working Lunch Center today. It’s where kids who don’t do their work in class or who cause major disruptions in class get to go do their work during lunch recess two days a week. It’s a joyful place. And, even better . . . my own daughter was in there. She’d DONE the work but had lost it before turning it in. Sigh.

After school, the fun continued. I was covering our Homework Club which is an afterschool study hall basically where kids can do their homework, get help with it, and get it checked for an hour after school. It actually went well — the kids worked hard and quietly and gave me no grief. Yay!

And, then home. Greg was home tonight — no band practice today so we had a family meal. Ruthie showed us the notes she can play on the flute and lamented the fact that she used to be able to play a D but can’t anymore. Gage took a bath and snuggled with for tv watching. It was good.

Oh, and best of all, my math kids did super-well on their math test today — I’m so proud of them!!!

    I’m glad to hear your frazzled days aren’t EVERY day! A snuggle on the couch watching TV sounds nice.

    That’s much better. I guess it’s true when they say you need a bad day to make the good days seem so great.

    Yes, that’s much better. I hope there are many more like this, well except for the mom who didn’t show for her 8:00 am appointment.
