We need some groceries big time around here. Somehow the weekend came and went without a meal plan and without the efforts of Mr. Silly Pants to stock the shelves with goodness and nutrition. Thus, Blue and I made it a
Whole Foods Whole Paycheck day. We were driving in the sunshine after having played outside on our deck in our fleece sweatshirts and boots – a welcome spring event. We even trudged over to the park bench and had a “sit”; scooping up melting snow we giggled and laughed and watched the warm snow melt in our hands.
I looked into my rear view mirror and had one of those breath-taking moments; I saw his perfectly deep brown almond shaped eyes looking right into mine. *Gasp* I thought,
Thanks for all the great comments. I wanted to say that because of structural/institutional stuff at my HS, job sharing isn’t an option. Our department has had staff reductions and my personal bid for part time isn’t going to get supported. It’s really an all or nothing question for this particular gig – this year, anyway. In a time of budget cuts (big ones this year, bigger next year) the scenario isn’t good for part time work UNLESS the FTE’s fall just right. This year they don’t. Your thoughts are good ones, friends. I’m all over the friendly advice, and I really appreciate the empathetic “me too’s” in the crowd. Thank you.
