what a waste.

our tax dollars pay for someone to work with children who have special needs (i.e., learn differently) who could not help first graders with the following: 16-6=__-__ It took me two days, but hopefully the person understands how the little ones are supposed to do it. Actually, one of them did understand. Not a new hire, not hard maths. such is life.

Mid Februray again? still?

Mice chewing on the walls again. They are probably the main reason I'd like to have a man in the house! or a cat. I'm allergic to one of the two...can't always remember which one gives me hives and sinus problems! Trapping season it is! (for the mice)

New experience for Feb: making phone calls for the Committee to support Spokane School Levy. I rang 38 numbers. 5 Yeses confirmed (2 in one home), 1 fax machine, 2 no longer in service, 5 "Uh-huhs", and 26 messages left (sometimes confusedly) on machines. I hate making phone calls to pple I don't know, but overall it was fun and probably good for me. And I got to reconnect with one of my favorite colleagues who also left the school we worked at last year.++
