The Simple Woman’s Daybook: February 18, 2018

For Today… February 18, 2018

Simple Woman's Daybook

Looking out my window… dark. It was snowing here this morning and then was nice and sunny (though still quite chilly in the afternoon).

I am thinking… about an email I just wrote to my attorney.

I am thankful… for the witness of the survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and their commitment to making the shooting at their high school the last one.

One of my favorite things… the Great Litany. We sang it this morning as it is the First Sunday in Lent.

I am wearing… jammies. Church clothes were my new black cardigan, black skirt, my blue-green fitted tee, black tights, and black flats. After church, I tossed on my charcoal long-sleeved shirt and jeans.

I am creating… electronic deposit slips for Payroll.

I am listening to… the Great Litany on YouTube.

I am hoping… to get both Access and Payroll completed tomorrow.

I am learning… relationship structure in databases.

In my kitchen… my dad made steak tonight.

In the school room… I caught the school district’s mistake in putting in a wrong date which would have made next year’s IEP the triennial one instead of this year’s. My “reward” is a meeting with the school psych on Tuesday to get the papers signed for testing. Oh freaking joy!

Post Script… March for Our Lives, a march on Washington to get Congress to take gun control legislation seriously.

Shared Quote… “Every single person up here today, all these people should be home grieving. But instead we are up here standing together because if all our government and President can do is send thoughts and prayers, then it’s time for victims to be the change that we need to see.” — Emma Gonzalez, student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (Full remarks are here.)
