So, everybody at work is sitting on pins and needles. Like last year this time, budgets are in awful shape and jobs are being eliminated. I'm safe because of my reassignment to the middle college, but my central office colleagues still don't know their fate. Our state legislators just simply DO NOT CARE about public education. It is a SIN and a shame. HEAR THIS....if you are an incumbent I will be voting against you when I next walk into a voting booth and will encourage my friends and family to do the same. Shame, shame, SHAME ON YOU! If you are a legislator in the fine State of South Carolina, feel free to try to explain yourself. I'll be happy to let you try...
On a brighter note, tomorrow is Derby Day and we'll be heading up to McClellanville to a party hosted by one of Hank's co-workers. We attended last year for the first time and enjoyed a delightful afternoon and evening. Good food and great conversation. I didn't know a single soul there with the exception of the host and hostess, but they sure know how to throw a party....and I DO love a well-concocted mint julep.
Lorelai is done with exams and heading to the beach for the week. Legare has one more exam and I'm told he plans to make an appearance for Mother's Day before he takes some beach time before heading to Charlotte to work for the summer.
Mother and Ned are hanging in there. I'm thinking of getting Ned an I-Pad. He needs to broaden his horizons from the radio and TV to something a bit more interactive.
Do you have an I-Pad or know somebody who does? Any thoughts or opinions that might help me decide what to do?
Happy Friday, my friends. Enjoy the weekend!
