Early Morning Phone Fatigue
Here it is almost 7 a.m. and I'm only just starting to write my blog entry. Unheard of!
I've had a crazy morning already. A class assistant called in sick and I could not find a substitute for her. I called ten people (and let me tell you how fun it is to call ten people at 6 a.m.) and none of them could take the job. I exhausted the school's sub list. Well, I've done all I can do -- and there's a teacher in the room, anyway, so it's not like the kids will be running wild.
Did you see Rachel Maddow's post-election show? She went on a terrific monologue in which she basically slapped the Republicans with a reality check, and went on to point out that our opposing parties ought to be able to work together and balance each other's interests in the service of better government. Awesome. I liked it so much I recorded it and you can watch it here.
We are having a refreshing run of sunny(ish) weather, so I seized the opportunity to go walking again yesterday. I'll probably go out today too. I am wearing out the camera!
