Like a shot in the arm

It's Thursday morning and already I can say that it's been a better week. I feel better and much more cheerful.

On Monday I was scheduled to go in to work and answer phones for a few hours. The administrators were there working hard to put together a virtual awards ceremony video. Due to a change in how registration was done last summer, over half of our students didn't have "media release" forms on file letting us know if we had their parents' permission to use their photos and names in something that would be shared on social media. Between honor roll, various school awards, and a photo montage of all of our 8th graders (in lieu of a middle school graduation) we had over 300 students whose parents and guardians needed to be contacted! I offered to come back the next day to help and the principal immediately took me up on it. So I went back Tuesday and worked a full day alongside him, his three assistant principals, and two other staff members they managed to find. I personally called and spoke to almost 60 parents and left messages for about two dozen more. By 4:30 I was beginning to stumble over my words a bit and my voice was started to go hoarse so I knew it was time to quit for the day. I haven't talked to so many people in months! Yesterday I went back and finished, I still had about a dozen parents to contact left on the my list. In between all these lengthy phone calls explaining who I was, what we needed and why, and how to access the video, I was also taking pictures of our Teacher of the Year and Support Staff of the Year and doing write ups on them and posting them to our school's social media. 

So yeah, I was busy. And I loved it! It felt so good to be contributing to the school again! It was even nice to talk on the phone to so many parents that I know--some of whom were desperate to talk after weeks of lockdown which I totally get. It was a treat to sit and have lunch with a few of my coworkers, too. The principal bought us all lunch and we gathered in a conference room, spread apart some, to eat it and there was much laughing and talking. Going to work for three days has made all the difference in how I feel.

Another great thing happened on Monday afternoon. When I got home from work Gregg and I went outside and trimmed some bushes in front of the house. While we were working on that, I got a text from Marla saying she wanted to drop something off at my house for us. I told her to come on by, that we were outside. A few minutes later her, her husband, and the baby pulled up. Marla got out of the car and stood several feet away and we got to talk face to face for the first time in months! She had brought two cupcakes for us to try. The baby's birthday is later this month and she's planning to make strawberry cupcakes for the party. And get this---it's going to be a Zoom birthday party! No one will actually be at their house except the three of them.

Luscious

I was so happy to see them. The baby was in a carseat in the back, and I said to her, "Carsen! I'm so happy to see you!" and she responded in her tiny little voice, "See you....."

I've missed that little girl so much.


I got a little teary when they left. I swear, I'm turning into a weepy, emotional mess in my old age.

So that's been my week so far. I'm feeling much, much better. Thank you all for the nice comments and support on my last post.

How are you doing this week?

  1. That is so sweet, Jennifer - all of it, especially Marla's visit!
    Yes, I suppose work makes a big difference. My sister has not been allowed to work for the second month in a row. She's fine money-wise, but she suffers the feeling of being "useless" - although of course she isn't. I hate to whine about how busy I am these days when she is around. Having said that, I hate to whine anyway - especially about work. I am glad and grateful for my job.
    Those strawberry cupcakes wouldn't go amiss right now for my coffee break :-)

    1. I Lost my Money to scammers but not anymore

      Well, who would have believed this. When I saw a comment

      by one Allison babara, I thought it was one of the Scammers

      ways to convince someone. Looking at his comment, I saw

      an element of doubt since he was telling stories. Well I did it

      50/50 which means I can’t lose my money to any scammer

      again. I contacted the email on the testimony of Allison?

      Babara securehackers01@gmail.com and I was

      replied immediately. I was shocked but I didn’t lose my stand.

      I asked them to give me proof to be sure they are not

      scammers like others that I have met before and they sent me

      a proof. Then I requested to get my card which they sent to

      me in Germany in just 3 days. Am happy now because I have?

      recovered my cash I lost to scammers. My first withdrawal?

      was $10,000 and I couldn’t believe my eyes until I confirmed?

      their word which says that I can withdraw up $63,000 in a

      month. securehackers01@gmail.com are real because I got my?

      card in just 3 days when I requested for one. Contact their

      mail (securehackers01@gmail.com ) for yours. They

      didn’t scam me.

      Morris mabel is my name and if you are scared, please reach

      me through my mail dasinator02@gmail.com

  3. Seeing that precious girl in her car seat makes me feel just like I feel when I see my own grandchildren and can't hug and kiss them. It's so hard!
    I'm glad you got to go out into the world and see people and be useful for a bit. That has to have felt very good.

  5. It does make a huge difference just getting out and about. While i haven't minded it much...i think the news and idiots get to me more while I'm in my four walls. It's not i don't want to not go out, but it's the ones not going what they should that worries me. So i stay put. That's said it's been nice being to the ancestral home for a visit. Still there. And the gardening has helped tons.

    Now how about a cupcake? They look as good.

  6. I'm so happy for you! It shows what a difference it can make to simply be with other people and work with a common goal in mind. It also helps to feel needed and to feel like you've contributed to a greater cause. I know your school officials really appreciate all you do for them!

  7. I'm glad you're having a better week! It really helps to be busy, doesn't it? I've found the same thing, being back at work this week -- though I would have HATED making all those phone calls. I'm not really a phone person. :)

  8. ooooooooooooh, those cuppycakes look dee-lish!

    3 more weeks of lockdown for us. my co-workers and I are itching to go back to work. once there, we are already spread out into our individual offices (there are only 6 of us). a mask and hand washing should get us through.

    we are social creatures and need others to fulfill a need to belong.

  9. What a nice feel good post. So happy you are doing well.

  10. One of the good things of having an Essential job is I never experienced full lock down. And while there have been those rare instances when customers have been asswipes, most of them are very aware and very considerate.

    The cupcakes look simply divine.

  11. Having a purpose and something to do, can change one’s attitude for the better. I am glad that you got to go back to your job and see people.

    I really miss my volunteer job and have to much time to think and worry.

  12. Work defines us so well, as you've noticed these last several days. So good to know you're back on top of your game, and I hope you stay there.

  29. GET RICH WITH THE USE OF BLANK ATM CARD FROM
    (besthackersworld58@gmail.com)
    Has anyone here heard about blank ATM card? An ATM card that allows you to withdraw cash from any Atm machine in the world. No name required, no address required and no bank account required. The Atm card is already programmed to dispense cash from any Atm machine worldwide. I heard about this Atm card online but at first i didn't pay attention to it because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got the card from guarantee Atm card vendor. We both went to the ATM machine center and confirmed it really works, without delay i gave it a go. Ever since then I’ve been withdrawing $1,500 to $5000 daily from the blank ATM card & this card has really changed my life financially. I just bought an expensive car and am planning to get a house. For those interested in making quick money should contact them on: Email address : besthackersworld58@gmail.com or WhatsApp him on +1(323)-723-2568
