On pins and needles, folks.

Well, tomorrow is the big day. My friend at work would call this "a come to Jesus meeting." I meet with Kayla's principal, her teacher and the school's D.A.R.E. officer and Kayla. At 11:55. (BTW- DARE. in this region, is a program for 5th graders and up wherein they pledge to and learn how to stay away from drugs and illegal substances.)
I called this wonderful man who runs my children's school on a program he calls "capturing their hearts". Hugs are allowed at this school, dis-respect is not. I explained the situation and asked for the meeting and the presence of the a police officer and without hesitation he agreed.
Its been a tiring week, I've run from the minute I am forced from my bed to the minute I give up trying to relax and I've made myself sick- well, ok, maybe it was my sniffly students that made me sick but it always happens in the busy weeks- right? Tomorrow I meet with my Navigator Artisans group for a girls night where-in I will demonstrate the little I know about encaustic painting. They are scrapbooking and I do not but will enjoy hanging with them. I sure hope someone brings some wine. (Yes, Kristi, I am counting on YOU to do this- because you are so amazingly efficient!)
Anyhow, I'm hoping my boss will take off early tomorrow afternoon and I can update you all on how the meeting went. I appreciate all the comments, especially the last few, as they help me gain perspective on a subject I may be just to close to see clearly. Good night, all- wish me luck opening a little girls eyes to a different perspective on her life.


  1. you know I am thinking of you and praying for K... I have no idea how you do it all, but remember: YOU DO! Hang in there, I'm sure if we could have coffee more often (or wine) it would help!! Let me know when you want to meet....CAN meet!

  2. Good luck Chris- I'm crossing my fingers for you and keeping you in my heart. I hope you feel better soon too ♥

  3. Chris you certainly have had a lot on your plate the last little while
    (I just finished reading your previous posts). I hope the meeting went well yesterday and that today you are able to relax abit.




Thank you for visiting with me:)
