Too Much Information!

When I got home tonight from water aerobics, I found 150 friend posts waiting. So I decided to cut out some of the communities that I was reading. Too much to digest on a tired brain; I don’t want to miss something good because I was tired of reading the junk. Also, I had subscribed to several communities that were for venting, and it was bringing me down. I am trying to turn from a pessimist to an optimist, and I need all the help I can get.

Back to school today. Fortunately, it was not so hot, so I was able to move a lot of things into my room without passing out. I still have a lot left to do, however. I was able to meet our new Dean of students who replaced the counselor. All though she doesn’t know much about special ed, she is willing to learn and wants to work hard. I’d rather work with someone like that any day than someone who knows a lot, but is negative.

Good parts of the day:

I got a key for my room (although I still need a building key so that I can go in on weekends).

I got a brand new printer!
(I had to bring in one from home last year). Unfortunately, the school did not provide a cable with it. I’m hoping I can get one from our technology guy. I can use my cable for printing, but I plan to take if off when I am not, so the guy won’t come in my room while I’m gone and think I already have one. (Don’t laugh; we really do have to play this game in a school).

I had a nice visit over at the middle school and left with times I can schedule my middle school students so that I will have a place to work with them. Although the middle and elementary schools are on the same campus, I don’t want them walking over to my office because they would take the scenic route to avoid working.

I toured the new self-contained room with our new self-contained room teacher. She is new to the business, but will be awesome.

You know, my boss told me last year that if I made it through my first year, I would feel like a genius this year. I do feel as though I know a lot more about what is going on, and I feel much more comfortable in my relationships. I still feel that I have a lot to learn about therapy, but also that I am a better therapist this year.

And I have a furry giraffe hat!

Post pix of furry giraffe hat. Somehow I have problems visualizing you with it.

You used the word "awesome". Hmm... I guess it's good to like your work. I do too but I use the word "cool" in general. I'm learning some new words from the receptionist too - like "bonus".
