You Are The Principal of the School You Will Not Allow Your Children To Go To?

Published October 20, 2015 by Angela

What???

I could not believe as I was scrolling through my Facebook posts that you posted a picture of you child excelling in a sport, at a school you do not work at.

Especially when I have done everything in my power to keep my four Blessed daughters in this school.

We graduated together. We talked old-school when my oldest was under your charge.

But wait. Are you not satisfied enough with the programs your school offers to allow your own children to go there?

I am so angry right now I cannot even put it into words.

Big Red Pride? Really? Where are your children? Because I have sacrificed everything to keep my girls there.

Do your kids even know where you work?

And How Is Your Winter Going?

Published January 9, 2015 by Angela

Mine; not so great. At least not today. I had to take a vacation day from work because as I was cleaning off my car after work yesterday, my driver’s side windshield wiper broke. Clean off. 50 MPH winds, white-outs, and I am holding one of my wipers in my hand.

I am in Muskegon. Living this close to the lake is a blessing in Summer, and a curse in Winter.

I found someone inside to zip-tie it back on so I could at least attempt to get home. Which was a ride from Hell. I was afraid to use the wipers, for fear it would break off while I was on the road. I got to the nearest auto-parts store, bought new wipers, and was told they could not install them for me. He really wished he could, but it was against company policy.

So by now I am only to the half-way point of getting home, am in tears, and still need to stop to get milk and cat food. I was going to leave work at 11am to beat the storm, and knew I would regret it once I didn’t. Thankfully, the wiper did indeed break off before I got on the road, or who knows what would have happened.

So we are still under a winter storm warning in West Michigan until 4pm today, and it is still snowing out. My new wipers will get put on this afternoon, but with the amount of snow still coming down, I have no intentions of going anywhere today, either.

Now that my “workday” is officially half over, I have still not done a single constructive thing. And probably won’t. I know the fact that I have lived in Michigan for my entire 42+ years means I really should not complain about winter, but I hate it. I hate it more every single year than I did the year before.

Are you caught in this winter storm as well? My girls have not had school for 2 days now, and are on the verge of getting cabin fever, already. What are you doing to pass the time?
