To say this was an emotionally draining week was an understatement. Between TOO MUCH family, and my daughters prom and graduation, my mind is toast. Of course, in four years of High School my daughter never forgot anything. So yesterday, we were on the subway going uptown when she realized that she forgot her NHS sash…..yeah- I did a subway U-turn (luckily we realized at a stop where I could easily reverse my steps) and made it back with time to spare. Nothing like a little drama on graduation morning.
I am grateful for every teacher, staff, administration, mentor, and coach my daughter has ever had- and the NYC DOE. My child received a brilliant education via the public school system and they are the most under recognized people around. Thank you to every single one of them that helped my daughter into the outstanding young woman that she has become
OK- this one not so easy. I was not the calmest person this week- bordering on passive aggressive, or just plain old non engagement. This was a very tough week to not lose my cool. I did write to a friend “You may need to visit me in prison because I may strangle someone” which was oddly calming but not recommended as a coping strategy.
