Today my son went back to school. Yay!
Slightly on tenterhooks to see how that all went, but I guess I'll find out this afternoon.
And I found out that I won a contest on Megan's blog. Yay!! (I Soooo want the companion book to P&P. Hee hee hee.)
Yesterday a story hit the papers regarding the political blowup which I thought we had all moved away from. Newspaper published one of those recap articles, totally stirring the shit, in the Sunday edition complete with a timeline of controversial events, tips from confidential sources, and quotes from active parties, including me.
Yeah, it's my quote, but damn, I gave it to her like three to four months ago. Yeah, I've got no factual beef with the article, but now we've all got to go live through all of the angst, no wait, Sturm und Drang, again. (And at the last Board meeting, there was NO public comment. None. Which is a bizarre but sure sign that the community likes what you're doing. Happy people never bother to say thank you and they certainly never attend meetings.) There's even a quote from little Miss Butter Won't Melt In My Mouth exclaiming, "Why, Rhett! I surely don't know what you're talking about. Letters from lawyers? Now why would you say such a thing. Me? Asking to be bought out? Why no, Suh. Why, I certainly loved my job. I loved working with the children. I don't know why these people didn't like me."
I'm all for a public press and open discussion, but talk about poking a beehive with a stick. Sheesh.
