I've been a member of SP for a long time, but have also been away for a long time. My spark didn't dim, it went out. I put my health on the back burner to take care of others, and now I'm paying the price. I have discovered that if I want to take care of others, I have to take care of ME first.

I spoke too soon about the conferences. I had a scathing email sent to the principal, owner of the school, and me by a very dissatisfied mom. Ugh.

Way to go on your two latest awards, Karen! I am cleared to return to school for half days for the next couple of weeks. I spent 2 hours at school preparing. Sooo tired!

Thanks so much for the Goodie, Karen. Last night was rough for some reason but yesterday was my best day yet. Go figure! Maybe I just did too much: microwaved my own lunch, took my own shower, and walked around the kitchen and den several times...too much activity?! I hope it' keeps getting better.
