I had a very frightening experience yesterday. While I was home on lunch, my phone rang. That is very unusual. Everyone that calls me knows that I work during the day. I fumbled with my phone attempting to answer it. Somehow, I sent it to voicemail. I check the voicemail on google voice, and the person left a message. Of all people, it was a student that I couldn't get away from. He was in my classroom at the alternative school. Then, he was at the residential facility when I transferred there. I transferred to the facility in October. By December, he had been moved to my classroom. I do not know how this student got my number. He is a very scary person. He fantasizes about rape and murder, at least he did while he was in my classroom. So, I told the facility and my direct supervisor about how he called me on my cell phone. My husband did call him back and told him not to call me again. When I got to work, he was on the phone in my classroom. I talked to him for about a minute. I still don't really know what he wanted. I didn't really give him a chance to talk. He is one of the few students I was somewhat scared of. I went to the police station after work to file a police report. The officer I talked to called him up and told him that if he contacted me again, then they would file harassment charges. So, for the next few days, the facility is on high alert and my husband is taking me to work in case he shows up at work.

I don't even know where to begin. I haven't been around much for the past week. It's been a long, busy, eventful week. I was in a car accident on February 18, 2014. Then, that next weekend, we went to my in-laws, where the car was located, to determine what to do about the car. This past week, I took a personal day on Friday so we could sell the car to a neighbor. While we were at my in-laws (2 hours away), the transmission went out on our other car in the morning. We spent all day dealing with that. So, now neither car works. We will find out on Monday what is wrong with the car. We currently have my husband's grandma's car. Thank God for grandmas! Then, we might be fixing my car and we might be buying my car. Not sure which we're doing.
Then, to make this all more difficult, we discovered yesterday that my husband's childhood friend, and our mechanic, is shooting heroine. So, we have been trying to get him help for the past day and warning other friends in case he shows up at their house. So, I'm not sure what we're going to do in this situation. My husband called our friend's dad and talked to him at length this morning. The dad is trying to figure out what to do in this situation.

Well, my week is ending with me spending the night at my grandma's babysitting my baby niece and nephew. They are 3 and 2. The evening started with it taking me over an hour and 30 min to make a drive that should have taken just over an hour. Then, when I got to my grandma's, my nephew was asleep on the couch. My sister woke him up as she was getting ready to leave and he started crying and wouldn't be consoled. It took her several minutes to get him calmed down to the point that she could leave. Then, as he was eating the blueberries she distracted him with, he bit his finger. He started screaming/crying again. I will finish this later. My nephew needs a diaper change and some cuddling.

Well, my husband and I both had foreboding thoughts about me going to my parents this week. And, they proved correct. I had a good visit with my family and a dear friend. But, while I was on my way home from meeting my friend, I had a car wreck and totaled our good car. We were planning on selling my car and getting a new car around June. But, I wrecked my husband's car. Now, we are going to wait until we get my tax refund back to buy a car. I'm not sure what type of car we're going to buy, but we are going to begin seriously looking. I only had minor injuries from the car accident (broken toe and bruised rib). But, I took today off from work. I have to do some things to clean up the mess I caused.
I also got some bad news at the eye dr yesterday. The swelling is coming back in my eyes. He doesn't think I need to go on medication at this point, but he wanted me back in 3 months instead of 6. Although, he said that I'm relatively symptom free from the swelling.
The accident yesterday caused me to miss my psychiatrist appt yesterday. I'm going to call this morning and hopefully he has an opening today. Since I took off today, I can go in whenever today.

Well, I have a long weekend this weekend. I am off Monday because of President's Day. Then, I am off Tuesday because I have an eye appointment. So, I will only be working 3 days next week. I do not think I will have a sub Tuesday. But, my aide is prepared to cover for me. He's a retired teacher, so he will do fine.
I do not know anything from the State being here on Thursday. It may be weeks or months before I know anything. I'm hoping for an update on Wednesday at team meeting. But, I have to leave team meeting early to go to the therapist's.
I'm headed to my parents' tomorrow afternoon. I'm really not looking forward to going. Especially now that my brother won't be there. I haven't seen my brother since the beginning of November. He leaves today for a 10 day cruise. So, I won't get to see him this weekend and he won't be playing at my school like he had planned. We're going to try to reschedule him to come to school when he's home in April.
Monday, mom wants me to spend the whole day with her setting up a sewing room in my sister's old bedroom. Then, she wants me to start coming down on weekends so we can sew together. I'm not sure how that's going to work out. I usually have a couple rough days when I come back from seeing my parents.
If I could get out of going this weekend, I would. But, I don't see a way out of it. Even the therapist agrees that there really isn't a good way to get out of this one.
I found an article that someone wrote that has basically summarized the bizarre teachings I grew up with. Here is a link to the article.
If the link doesn't work, here's the web address you can copy and paste: http://homeschoolersanonymous.wordpress.co
This nicely summarizes what I was taught. I'm taking it to the therapist on Wednesday, and I emailed a link to my pastor so he could read it.
