My brain just is not working

I am a tired old lady. Our new student is sweet, but has lots of special needs. We will get a new para, but only until 1 p.m. then they want her in another place. We need some afternoon coverage. I have been providing it. We have been graciously told we can wear sweats, shorts, or pajamas tomorrow for the last day before spring break. Just to reward us for working so hard through so many illnesses. So, I have clothes laid out. Dinner is about half ready. I may just take a pbj for lunch tomorrow. Then we have both Spring Forward and Spring Break. The end of the year is drawing near. I will see what else my brain can come up with later.

No, I am a paraprofessional in a specialized class room. We just got a new student right before Spring Break and she is in foster care.

I actually think I will enjoy the many things involved in the end of the year. Yes, the new child is in foster care. For all the adjustments she has had she has done really well.

It is a needed thing, but I also do enjoy being out of the house for work.

I am okay but not top of my form. I think I am going to be sent to an Ear Nose and Throat doctor because I have not 100% gotten rid of the infection. Bob and I had some other appointments, but otherwise I am just trying to decide which of my one million projects I want to do.

I hope you have a nice time over spring break and come here to keep us posted on your days off. What did you wind up wearing sweat, pjs or shorts? I don’t think I’d want to wear any in public except shorts but it’s too cold for that.

Mostly we have just taken care of business that needed doing. Some appointments, some shopping, some cooking, some organizing.

I loved having people like you to make my life better and the lives of my students better when I taught special education.

I am just getting into the swing of things and it is time to go back to work. However, I am grateful to have work that I like.
