So I haven't posted in over a month..life gets busy and things get put by the wayside. Home improvement has all but stopped. Time has been a very short commodity in the Innes household and it has been a struggle for both of us--just hanging on. The end of the school year did not go well for me, and I seriously had doubts about my future at Harrison and whether it was the right place for me. I can say that I'm sticking it out and hoping for the best. When you believe the in the vision and the direction, you hope you can make a difference. I believe in the school, so that is where I'll be, but I am clearing my plate. I give too much, and there is not enough left for myself and my marriage. Now if the administration will live up to it's promises... Add to that the added stress dealing with the federal government--we are STILL waiting on Jim's clearance to come through... it is so frustrating. The investigation was done in March...will someone just look at the stupid file and make a decision? Jim is so frustrated and I know how much he wants this. It feels like we are just sitting on the sidelines watching the world go by and we can't jump in and go with it. There is so much more we want to do, but I guess it will have to wait.
On a more positive note, school is out tomorrow and I have the summer! No teaching summer school, no taking classes to keep up my certification, none of it... I have time for me and for us. What a feeling. I cannot wait to start.
