Family and Life:
Last night I took my daughter and her friend to the musical at the high school where I work. It is Me and My Girl, a show I've never seen before. It's definitely old fashioned, but I was really proud of the students' singing and dancing!
And today is Mother's Day. I must admit I am really not big into these "special days". I feel like I should honor my mother every day and not point it out just one day a year. But, it's a big deal here in the US and to my mom so I usually make her a card that includes a photo and nice sentiments. I think we'll also go for a walk on the beach, maybe visit the botanic gardens
Me and my mom in 1965. Yes, I look most unattractive and am drooling, but I think she looks great! And the one on the right is me and my daughter
I spent Tuesday at my RIF hearing. Such an interesting process, it's like a real court hearing with lawyers, witnesses, etc. Nothing was decided, but I did discover that all the librarians have to decide if we'll stay in the library with a 70% time job or if we want to return to the classroom with a 100% job. That is, if the cuts hold. We'll know more at the end of May.
Books and Reading:
A friend just read Zora and Me by Bond and Simon, which she said is really good. It's a fictionalized account of Zora Neal Hurston's childhood. And, I am finally reading a book about South America! Yay me!
