Great Reunion Day!
Sunday, June 28, 2015
This is my first blog in several days because life has been hard and the decisions tough ones, but today I feel like I have come out on the other side of a deep valley and as usual, God has seen me through. The situation with my school principal has deteriorated to the degree that one teacher has contacted a regional administrator and I had prepared both an internal grievance and a federal EEO complaint to be filed via registered mail tomorrow. After a sleepless night and careful consideration of my health issues, etc., I made the decision to file my grievances for any future reference, keep my mouth shut, and work until January 1, when I shall just not bother to return from Christmas break
It's a scary prospect to be an al ultra-fixed income but if I get busy, I should be able to find some minor part-time jobs, etc., or focus more fully on my writing as a means of bringing in extra money. For sure, I can count on my Thanksgiving and Christmas vacation money if I work until then and if I filed all I could look forward to is retaliation and retribution from this woman and from the school district. Bottom line, I am 65 years old and it is time for me to retire. Other people make it just fine and so will I, and I won't have to spend the next couple of months explaining to "higher" authorities why their administrator is a sap and a jerk, as well as a racist and in general, a piss poor principal.
To cap off this heavy thinking, I went to a cemetery association reunion where essentially everyone is a distant cousin, and I had a great, wonderful time connecting and changing family stories and getting ready to write some genealogies--which may also lead to some money. I feel really, really good!
