Well, I am back at work.
I have a lot of work to do since most of my children haven't spoken English for a week, and have forgotten most of what they knew. I forgot how much I missed a couple of them. One little gal who reminds me of my daughter also lost a tooth. Another little boy who has a twin, is really making some progress. He is a super cutie too.
I also forgot about all of the children who I taught last year who say HEELLllllloooo Ms. Green whenever they see me. If they are close enough I get a hug. They think they are hot stuff now that they are in 1st grade. Stinkers.
They were rock stars. I stayed home on FMLA and they were perfect for my sub. God does that. He gives ya a great class when you will be. He knows how hard it is to find a good long term sub!
I have been trying to be quiet and take everything that Annie is reminding me off. I do need to remember how scared I was when I got food poisoning and thought I was on my death bed, and how I knew 911 was a moment away. (Called my mommie instead) (Yes I am 40)
I need to remember that when Anna had a fever for 3 days that I could cruise by urgent care, to find out she did not have the flu, rather it was strep. Antibiotics were right down the street at the 24 hour CVS. Total time. Less than 3 hours.
When AugustRose broke out into a rash from head to toe when we first got home from Russia. Head to the ER, no insurance card yet, no problem. Come on it lets get her well. Billed later, and then resubmitted it to insurance. The $1000.00 ER visit, later paid by insurance. Amount of effort to deal with it. One phone call to Blue Cross, and one phone call to the hospital...
Maybe I could find a program that would allow me to volunteer for free room and board.
Maybe I could stay with Anna and work in an orphanage in Khabarovsk...Missi, let's consider that!
Okay. I will think some more and then think some more!
