Thank Goodness! How y’all doin’ this morning? I’ve been meaning to write for a few weeks, but I get home from work and errands and am just so exhausted. The heat we were having and apparently about to start having again, just zaps me of all my energy. I’ve never been a summer/heat person, and it seems the older I get, the more I can tell, LOL.
I think I have a bone spur on my left heel. I was diagnosed with one years ago, but it was only irritated that one time, that I can remember, but now it’s really a pain. I’m going to call the doc just to be sure. When I mentioned this to my fiance last week, he said, “Well, if you thought about enlisting in the military, you’ll get a deferment!” OMG, I CRACKED UP!
I’m glad it’s a 3 day weekend. We’ve been back to work since early August, and while it’s so good to be back amongst people, seeing the awesome teachers, students, admin, whom I KNOW are stressed, it’s can be stressful for us as well.
We have a great bunch of students in our class. funny, sassy, and just makes the day go by fast. There’s never a dull moment, and our teacher is great, she loves to be silly while getting work done. PLUS, the kids are engaged when she’s being silly. She’s such a great teacher.
MY student that I am assigned to, colored this picture for me. She’s the sweetest. She colored another one a week before and wanted to give it to me, but she wrote, “To: Mom From: (her name)” and I told her that she needed to give that to her mom, because she wrote “to Mom.” We went back and forth, and she took it back, but she was very upset about it. When I walked her to her mom, at the end of the school day, I noticed she was sad and walking really slow. I asked her what was wrong. She said, “I’m sad.” I asked her why and she said, “Because you said you aren’t my mom!” I gave her a hug, and told her that I will take her coloring picture and when she goes to Art class again, she can color me one and write, “To Ms. Shusha” (that’s how she says Patricia) from (her name)” and I will take it. Don’t think that isn’t just what she did, LOL. On Wednesday, it was almost like she couldn’t wait to get to me, she said, “Miss Shusha, I have something for you!” and she handed me her coloring pic. It was the same exact picture, but colored for me ❤ AND she still got “Mom” in there, LOL The Aid she was with in Art told me she was INSISTENT on putting “Mom” on it.
Her mom and I had this discussion with her, and her mom said she, her daughter, considers her Mom at School.
I just LOVE what I do. Speaking of which…
My daughter and I were talking Thursday afternoon, and she asked me, “What do you want to do, Mom?” I thought I was pretty much doing what I love to do, LOL. She feels I should be using my knowledge in what I learned in my Paralegal Studies in helping others. That was my intent 7 years ago, but because I couldn’t intern FOR FREE, and Family Law attorney’s offices around here aren’t open on the weekends, I didn’t go down that road. I told her I wanted to do a podcast, but not sure of the subjects I want to speak about. I know Parental Alienation is a big one for CERTAIN, but is that all I want to talk about? I’ve always felt I wanted to do something along with what I’m currently doing, it’s just a matter of getting it together and setting it up. I’ll get there. Then, WATCH OUT world! 😉
What’s your plans this weekend? I know it’s supposed to get hot, so I’m not sure what my plans are except to water my plants, and try and stay cool. I can’t tell you how I dislike this hot weather. I try and take my fiancé’s motto of “If you think cool, you’ll be cool,” but it doesn’t work for me. I keep trying though. Maybe one day it will come to pass, LOL.
I’ll write more later, and I’m sure I’ve forgotten some things I’ve been trying to write for two weeks now, LOL. I need to make a conscious effort to write at least every other day or so.
I wish you all a very happy Saturday! Enjoy your day, have fun, stay cool and stay safe! Until next time…
