I came home feeling beat up again, this time I did it to myself. I have a student that I've been trying to get help for since the 3rd week of school. I believe we are in week 15 now and still nothing for her. I keep going to administration, we had a meeting, and nothing has changed. Every day I ask, when is something going to be done? I feel like I'm hitting my head against a brick wall and wish I could just let it go, but she is making everyone around her miserable because she is so miserable. I don't understand why it is so hard to get help for kids sometimes.
So, I sat at the computer for an hour and then decided I could do something productive for 15 mintes. This is what I got done! I quilted this really big quilt (well, really big for me). It is 60 x 72 and big enough to cover a teenager at a foster home.
I still feel beat up but better that I got something done to make someone else's life a little better. And that is how things get done...15 minutes at a time. Now, to get up and cook dinner in 15 minutes :)
