And on a personal note, this week wasn't quite so taxing as last week. That Friday was a full moon! So I managed to find a place to cry a bit just from the emotional overload and made it through. Today was a serendipity for me We got off a day early for Christmas vacation. I'll probably moan about the extra day in June, but for now I needed the relief.
We managed to deliver all of the gift certificates and presents the staff had bought for students. Everyone was very generous. The social worker's office looks like a used clothing store with all of the donated coats. But we hand out coats every day, standing in the halls to spot kids with only sweatshirts for a coat. Some of them are dressed that way by choice (silly kids), but some happily accept the offer of a coat. Middle school kids don't like gloves, hats and scarves, but we've given out some of those too. Who knows where they end up!
I made the granddaughters' Christmas concert...my camera has gone defunct. It won't power up even though the battery is charged. I think it died. I've had it about 3 1/2 years and have used it lots. I've taken more than 6,000 pictures with it. I hate it when something so comfortable dies. I really don't like getting used to new equipment. The older I get the slower my learning curve goes!! I have promises of pictures from my DIL for the dance recital of the little one. So one of these days I shall just post pictures. But for now no snow pictures. Even though we have about a foot and it's still falling!!! It's beautiful out, wet and cold, but beautiful!
