And we know

All things work together for good for those who love God to those who are called according to his purpose.

Today I am holding onto that one.  You see my assistant principal is leaving at the end of this year.  So I thought I'd put my name in the hat of candidates.  Maybe this would be the year for me.  Don't get me wrong.  I love, love, love what I'm doing and I feel like I'm pretty good at it (well, at least we aren't regressing anyway).  But, I have this MSE in elementary administration and really that is where I'd like to end up eventually.  I found out at the end of the day that the calls for interviews had been made.  I can't say that I was surprised that I wasn't called, but it still hurts my feelings when my own district doesn't grant me an interview.  So, I'm throwing myself a small pity party then I'll put my gameface back on and do my job tomorrow because my guys deserve my best.  And, there's clearly a reason I didn't get picked this time (I just don't know exactly what it is).

How I got nothing accomplished this weekend

by Frau M.

Well, I did get one thing accomplished.  I read the Hunger Games from cover to cover (even going back and rereading some parts).  I bought the book in our book order this month.  I knew I had to save it until after conference week.  So after what will go down in my personal history as quite possibly one of the worst weeks of my life, I thought I should reward myself by reading for pleasure (gasp!).  I wasn't disappointed.  In fact, tomorrow, I am going to either buy or check out Catching Fire (really, it's that good).
