funny how when I'm imbibing in this forbidden fruit (?) my thoughts go to having our inevitable conversation with our resident Jesus and his disciples... I see that this power hungry peace corpnick won't be happy until he completely takes over the village with his "religion"... a sped teacher in search of his own evidence of his own miracles with our darling students of the tribe!
Heck he could do it in Uzbekistan with the native caucasoids of the Caucasion mountains bordering the middle East, so why can't he do it with the native Navahos!
Hey! In his first two weeks this "Jedi warrior" as he calls himself has already been invited to several smoke house ocassions by several of the assistants who have the status of matriachs in the desert community.
It was funny and almost predictable how the staff were friendly for a change instead of the negative stuck of vibes of him and some other peace corp egos not present for the weekly friday meeting! The sped dept survived without Jesus and the BOrg! Amazing!
The older I get with all the trials and tribulations that surviving life has to give me, I see more and more how we need to enjoy every moment of sunshine with any many smiles sans the frowns"
We have a few moments of daylight each day and I need to get out and enjoy it while I still can!
I've been to a casino and debated about wasting an hour losing money or just pig out on my buffet of the day!...Today is so gorgeous! I'm amazed at how beautiful Santa Fe looks when you finally get over this high overpass bridge...the snow captures the magic of a little hippy (?) fiefdom nestled into the Rockies!
It's good to escape from the isolation and see more of this "enchanted" state where it appears that "her" curse is still working!
What a week! I had to make sure that I was able to make the hearing last Monday come hell or high water even if my old Infiniti broke down, I'd be able to get a taxi in the small city. Me and my stupid ADD! I think what a hassle it is to have to find the closet to hang some clothes. So I absentmindedly hang my clothes for next morning in the fire squirter. I put them in , enjoy the night in the motel with HBO, and then just as I am about to get ready to get dressed and go to court, the hose busts when I take out the plastic hangers from the device above the extra bed!
Kaboom! Like a grenade with the pin taken to become an explosion of water! My laptop and all my clothes, the cell phone were all drenched in an immediate flood.
I went to the hearing with fortunately some half dry pants and my emergency blue sweater kept in the trunk. I was happy that I at least had already put Buffy in the car!
It's getting through those almost hellishly hilarious days and nights that makes you often think of the saying,
"That which doesn't kill you makes you stronger!"
But at least that gave me an excuse to drive to ALB and turn in the deceased laptop to redeem my ADD accident insurance with hopes of an laptop to deal with the temporary loss until she gets back from California! The Nerd Squad couldn't fix it here. I had gone to realize how badly I need accident plans on everything because of my very misunderstood disability. If the exbitches( sorry?) understand my malady, maybe they might have been a little more forgiving...
Muffy is getting there but knows how much the Addaboy helps. She told me of how it helped her nephew in schools suddenly be able to focus and get better grades!
Mittwoch....so many mmms in my life....I think I'm finally able to sit back and get a much healthier perspective on my life....when I accept it's finity, then I get to enjoy it so much more and our limited time... I think that I'm alone with all my thoughts and realize I know many folks in this public and then I see they are sitting right behind me!
I wonder if the Hindu Ganesh and his positive vibes have been helping me out...sometimes, I get a little smoke and I sure can be way out there with these delusional thoughts worried that a school associated person might see what I'm writing....
Overall I feel much better ... to mix my endagered bud with a little catnip helps savor the feeling a little longer...I had to visit Albuquerkie to return my laptop knowing about my add accident prone ways...I miss the laptop as soon as I parted with it almost as she has become one of my favorite friends that I miss each day...my connection to the infinite universe.
Yes I realize how little time there is in life to say everything I need to say to my endangered(?) audience...(am I worried when the only person that I saying this for now is myself) ...to put everything in perspective...life , school, my inheritance...it was cut in half. Ron will get most of the cash so I can keep my spot on the beach or with my accident prone life, it will get hit by a sunami or the rising sea will engulf it before I turn 90(?)
Will I be looking out into the sea alone with my thoughts or will a young Aussie Schwagmaiden be nursing me down to the beach for our daily swim in the surf?
...I feel slightly elated today after doing what I thought was a good thorough job on helping to write the IEP for Julio...Jesus had to almost spoil giving his two scents (?)
we kidded about how a dog wants to piss in every corner of its territory ... He had to come in and kiss up to the mother (grandmother) to show her how great and wonderful this peace corp jedi is!
He had to interrupt the meaning to announce his presence...maybe we should have sprinkled rose petals before his approach...What did they sprinkle on the path when Jesus was arriving on his mule(?)
I'm really bummed out that I only have 3 minutes to say how excited I feel about the chess but then bummed out how I seem to get in the habit of getting disrepect from my worst hour of the day...with 3 little tyrants!
Our big Utopachi Chess Fest is on tomorrow. I am very excited about setting up some wooden chess for students or adults to play tomorrow in the cafeteria....It was kinda more peaceful today without Jesus and relieved that I did not have the Iep since I was not quite prepared...I feel good and more confident in writing much better IEPS...It becomes a few day project especially when I'm helping my "mentee" with his writing and understanding of the process! Sometimes I think that I can be a good teacher when I get over my laziness and incredible disorganization!
