Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

One Hell of a month

OK. I did not start this to always be whining, but I am very happy this month is ending. I no longer have a job. I was fired on Saturday. The annoying part is that it wasn't for job performance, but because I bounced a check to the company. I paid the check, but it required "formal counseling" and because I was within my 90 days (3 days away) that is automatic termination.
My immediate boss seemed very upset about the whole situation and no one seems to believe it. Least of all, me.
Financially, it won't be to horrible. I am more dependent on the boy's disability than the work income. It will still hurt, especially since I won't be able to work until January due to Konal's medical needs.

Mom goes to Washington DC to bury my Uncle on December 4. I really wish I could go, but it is impossible at this point. He is going to be buried at Arlington with my Grandparents.

Finals are coming up. I am very behind in my classes and have been spending every spare moment catching up. Unfortunately, there haven't been many of those because Konal is having a hard time the last few weeks. He has been acting out almost daily. The good news is that we now have in home 3 days a week. YEA!!!

Mom is broke too. This is killing us. The garage door broke yesterday. I was in tears while I was fighting it down. We will be without a garage for a while, because neither of us can afford to fix it.

And Konal's teacher called yesterday. He is basically failing 4th grade. I will have to call another school meeting for him.

And I wonder why I am trying so hard to stay sane. I think I was the closest to a breakdown yesterday that I have been in a long time.

I don't know what I am going to do.

There are silver linings... But I can't think of them right now.
