TGIF with a free weekend

I'm glad it's Friday and I don't have to go out of town. I was so ready to leave school today. I left the parking lot by 4:00 p.m. and was home by 4:30. I order Thai Kitchen (chicken fried rice) for dinner since Josh had plans to go out with one of his friends. So much for my diet. I need to watch myself this weekend. I haven't lost any additional weight, but haven't gained any either. That is probably good since I ate horribly last weekend during the trip. I'm going to play some scrabble tonight and watch t.v. Tomorrow I think I'm going to go to confession. I've never actually done confession on a weekend... I've always just done the yearly communal service. But I didn't get to do that this year. I missed Mass last weekend and although it is probably not a mortal sin since I was on a school trip, I really just need to go regardless. I need to get over the fear I have of it and just deal with it.

Tomorrow Josh and I are going to go shopping for a vest and tie for prom. He's going to wear his band tuxedo again to save money. I need to pay bills and see how much money I have this month. I need to pay his band camp deposit. He didn't get the scholarship we were hoping for. Well, I should be getting the tax credit some time in May. That will help.

I got my review from my evaluator today. It was all good stuff. I wasn't worried about it. I'm certain that they're not going to fire me. I really need to focus on getting my masters degree though. I hate all this stuff that they're putting on teachers. Today I had to fill out a "Teacher Self Report" full of justification for everything I do as a teacher. Next year we are going to an 8 period day which means more classes and more time at school... but no more pay of course.

Well, I guess I've rambled on enough for tonight. I'm going to start my scrabble game and take it easy this evening.

Mom was Catholic for years and never went to confession. I've asked her about it several times and she just blithely says she never did anything wrong. ??? Me? I would be terrified of confession. For the longest time, I was on a one way ticket to Hell. I guess I use my blog as a type of confessional the way I've talked honestly about my alcoholism and the terrible husband I was to my ex-wife.

I am so glad you are home this weekend and can rest some. I really do worry about the amount of responsibility thrust upon you. We are like opposites. I don't have enough and you have too much. I like to read you not only for the details of your life since I consider you a friend, but also as a high water mark I would like to obtain. And now you're starting college again and will be even busier. I better get to work to catch up with you.

Enjoy the Thai, Scrabble, and TV. You deserve it. I guess I could have made this into a blog post! I am writing you a book. I just care. Take care, friend.
