Hey hey, it's midnight, and I couldn't get to LJ earlier. I've been making a powerpoint for our Mission Day liturgy in the morning. Yawn, I am literally falling asleep! I couldn't get to my flist either before, so I'll catch up with you over the weekend, I guess. OMG I am so tired! I had a really busy couple of days, with sixty girls to get into sites in Rest Homes for the day, and all their transport organised, RAMs for the cemetery trip, details for all sorts of things to get all three hundred girls busy tomorrow helping the community. And tomorrow it will happen then it'll be OVER! Then I have to write junior reports. Luckily most of my students are seniors. I only have two junior classes. That'll be Monday's job.

And my tongue still hurts when I don't take the pain killers. So hey, I'm taking them LOL! I am sure it'll be better really soon. It looks absolutely gross though. Fat, black stitches. Yuk!

I've had a three calls these last two days from friends from my old school. We all have ties, you know, to the evil that went on there. It dug deep into people and it isn't fair, you know? People don't need to be hurt like that. There are so many ways to deal with people without hurting them. Even today, I watched one person shoot down another in Staff meeting. And it hurt, to see that going on. I guess it happens. We mostly all do it somehow some time or other, whether we mean to or not. Women, huh...

And so. Tomorrow night, drinks with the Archbishop... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh. The children get to go to Pirates of the Caribbean. I get the Bish. Heh. Part of the job apparently. So I'll have to put on a good show. And this time next week, I think Steve will be in France. And I won't :-( Still, the results of the last trip still hurt a bit, knowing I thought I had a great friend there. Then I didn't any more. So I can wait. The world can wait. I'm busy here.

*wonders what the archbishop will make of your tongue ...*

It took years for the hurt from the school I retired from to fade, for me and for others. You are so right - it is totally unnecessary. I don't think it's just women - more that women tend to be in authority in small schools and the scope for dishing out hurt is wider. I sometimes wonder if people who deliberately aim for authority are at least marginally on the autistic side of normal and lack empathy. It's thought by some psychologists that this is what enables some people to make good salesmen, and I suppose ambitious women have to be able to sell themseves.

Take care of yourself - all these painkillers will be affecting you in various ways as well as helping, you know!

Hope the Mission Day goes well, even though I haven't the faintest idea what a Mission Day is!!

Hee! I concealed it from him! I honestly can't go sticking my tongue out at him! Not now I'm in a position of responsibility, dammit!

You could be right there!! I wonder if they also tend to be the ISTJ type of person on the Myers Briggs chart. The thinking, judging, slightly introverted types, not the nurturing, sensitive types like me... *giggle* and you!!

Yeah? I hadn't thought about that. I am not thinking very far past my tongue...

It's just something our school does. And it's a good day!

Keep taking the painkillers, that's what they're there for!

Mission Day sounds like quite the job to do! It sounds like a good thing for the girls to do. Do they just help out in various places around the community?

There are so many ways to deal with people without hurting them.
Yes there are. And sometimes I wish people would look for them more, including myself.

Thank you. I am. I am slowly taking longer between doses!!!

It was a very good thing for them. And we organised all sorts of things for them, so they were all pretty busy.

Well, I know we all make mistakes, but if we can be on the lookout for doing it better each time... *sigh* it's a pity we can't right the past, but that's impossible with most people these days, huh. Just have to look to doing better in the future. All of us LOL!

I hope Mission day goes smoothly, I'll be thinking of you all, such a lot of work and planning for just one day, but I'm sure it will be good!!

Can you eat and talk okay with your tongue like that? It must be awkward as well painful...

No it isn't fair when people choose to hurt one another... it's easy enough to hurt each other when we don't mean to, without people deliberately setting out with that intent, especially when those people have authority over us....

Have fun with the Archbishop!!!!!!! lol!

Oh here I am so late. Sorry.

I sure can't eat and talk at the same time, something I obviously do quite a lot *snort* because the ends of the stitches get caught in my teeth!! It's awful!! So I am learning better habits at the same time, hopefully.

And thanks, Mission Day, as you'd know by now, was fine.

Yeah, heh, now I can't tell him how cross I was with him at the last Confirmation!
