Between "cold days," changing school district policies for adult classes, changing locations for the class, and illness... it has been a bumpy start to the new semester.
I hope that things are evening out.
Big Anxiety this morning. Over finding appropriate gifted services for my child. Although that seemed like just the excuse for anxiety and not the cause.
I wonder if I am going to just bounce from one education-related obsession to the next.
Last Spring: save the orchestra program from becoming a pay-to-play situation
Summer/Fall: keeping Lego League fees from doubling
Winter: getting appropriate gifted services from the school (academic and emotional) for both of my children
I am having trouble calming down from this. I am tense. I find myself thinking that I am relaxed, but then discovering that I am actually clenching my jaw or holding my hand in some dreadful claw shape. Or I am holding one shoulder higher than the other. And I can't let go.
Very close to tears over nothing this morning. Crap. Ugh.
Grateful Crap: My awesome students. One already in college after 1 semester in college prep (and less than one year in the country). One (who just got her GED) starting next fall.
