kitteh - when my oldet started pre-school, she and we all were sick, 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off unti jan or feb. Then when ds started two years later the same thing happened. Your immune system is getting pummeled, but it will get better
I feel you. You have worked so hard for this and I know so well how heartbreaking it is, but you still have years of activity if you are kind to yourself. Maybe skip the half?
Ok, coming up for air finally
The worst of it started at 5am and Ive been in bed since, either laying in fetal position on one side or the other, but that's it. And then you know how your body gets SO cramped and all you can do is roll to the other side to give that hip and shoulder a turn. Im happy to say Im now laying on my back - woot!
So I wrote her back a brief email and essentially said; I appreciate that Im putting you in a difficult position, but as its been ten years (yes JG, since Spring 2001), you are in fact the person who could speak best to my abilities as a student AND teacher [and I need both], even with a scanty memory of me. Alternately, if you dont feel that I would be a good candidate, I will thank you for your time.
GULP, I sure hope its the former, b/c my ego was shaken by that last email (even though she said it was due to her meager memory), but of course I hear that Im not good enough, not liked, and then start on the path of "why am I applying, IM not smart enough or able enough for this" etc. Even though at my core, I dont think that's true. Bah. Im exhausted
In other news; this past summer we met another family at the camp we go to in CA that we hung out with a bit b/c our kids were buddies. We neglected to get their contact info., but I knew what town they live in (SMALL; Bolinas, if you've heard of it). So I call the post office there, b/c those small towns always have p.o.s and ask if they know the family. P.O. said no but send a letter anyway (and Im talkin', I dont know their last name). So I write a letter a few weeks ago b/c we will be there (Stinson beach) for Thanksgiving and would like to see them. I just got a call from their son (7)! As it turns out, I had called and mailed to the wrong P.O. I sent it to a P.O. in the next small town north (Point Reyes Station), and that P.O. sent it down to Bolinas in an attempt to find these people (whom the PRS P.O. didnt know). Crazy....Edited by sparkletruck - 10/21/11 at 5:06pm
