Slowly getting the new group of 6th graders and the older kids I didn’t have last year acclimated to my way. Haven’t had anyone in days ask what I mean when told to, “go get your machine”, not has anyone corrected me saying, “it’s not a machine, it’s a Chromebook. ”
Last year I began to teach the kids to just humor me, I’m old, just go with the flow. I get the biggest kick when one of the yahoos use one of my old sayings…they really do listen! Now if they’d just start picking up on “flying under the radar”, it’s something my mother has told me kids for years…”just keep under the radar, you get in less trouble that way.” It’s funny how they are so surprised when they get in trouble doing something they’ve been told numerous times to not do or they’d get in trouble.
Not always an easy job, but working with those junior high kids really does brighten my day more often than not.

Well, it’s almost that time again. Four free weekdays left for summer vacation and it’s back to the school year grind. Bubba and I both go back on Friday, which is rather strange, but it’s the first day schools are allowed to start the year in Iowa.
Bubba is going to be in the 11th grade and I will begin my second year of being a para. Bubba is not wanting to go back to school, I’m right there with him. We’ve been so busy the past few weeks, the thought of having less time to do work that needs be done has been causing stress of it’s own.
This year I will be working part time, the school is allowing me and another lady to job share. We really didn’t think it would be given the green light, still trying to get it sunk into my brain. Have yet to be excited about it when I know I should be dancing in the streets…so to speak.
We had a meeting a few days ago to learn our new assignments for the year, learned of all the things we now have to do and are no longer to do and feel like there’s a noose around my neck. I don’t recall school being so restrictive in my day in various arenas. Will see how it goes.
Have talked with my Old Boy about it and will give it until November 1. Thankfully I don’t have to work and don’t have to stay if I’m miserable. Hopefully just being negative being I’m not ready to have to wear shoes all day again.
Dedicated to psychological, physical, and spiritual wellness. We’re all hunting for happy, and we all need a little help.
