    Need some good vibes as my wife got passed over for a position she wanted... again. She's been teaching in two classrooms and riding the bus in the afternoon as her aide is incompetent. However, the big boss said she's "Not connecting with her aide" and "didn't wow them." So apparently going above and beyond and working yourself to the point of exhaustion doesn't get you what you want. Even though she's the second most senior teacher there. Bleep them. Bleep them all.

    prayers for you guys. My thought would be maybe it is time to look at if this is where she is supposed to be. If admin is that stupid it could be time to look some where that appreciates caring and hard work. You can sell your soul for the kids but at some point you might realize that you need some of your soul for yourself

    Sorry to hear that. Sounds like the kind of stuff that's driven many a good teacher, including my wife, away from the classroom.

    She's already planning to get out of there as soon as she can find something. She was told she was getting that morning classroom, but got it taken away. I'm even questioning if I'll get promoted at the end of the year because she's been screwed over so much. I know I'm confident in my abilities, but I can't help but worry.

    A patient once asked me a very thought provoking question- Do you live to work or work so you can live? I realized I work so I can do what I want in life so I should make the things outside of life my focus. Sometimes I forget that but it sure helps when I want out. I get a paycheck every pay period. Sometimes it is enough to pay for the irritation. Sometimes it isn't.

    I know. My wife and I both love what we do, but barely anything has gone right for us the three-plus years we've been married. It's like the switch was flipped and all the bad just came flowing. That's why I'm so nervous about everything in the world. The jobs... the lack of adding to our family. It's getting to us. I've been told so many times that we're not given more we can handle. Stop giving us stuff to handle. Lighten the burden a little, please.

    I'll keep you in my thoughts there MB. It's easy to get disillusioned, because in the work place there is so much political BS, but hang in there and don't do anything you might not be proud of. At the same time you kind of have to toot your own horn, and it seems your wife's aid has been talking to someone about your wife in a negative way.

    Good news: my dad spoke with the Norton Shores PD tonight, and this "no car" drama is over with. All my dad needs to do now is sign a paper, bring it to the auto body shop where it's being held, and the car will be released back to him. There is the matter of fixing the windshield, but that will happen after we bring it home.

    BIG sigh of relief.

    A few, actually. With Thanksgiving around the corner, I'll be picking up much more hours, which means the numbers on that check will be much larger.

    However, my anxiety disorder kicks up at work. Has me worried that I won't pass the 90 day eval, that I'm being set up to fail, that sort of thing, and I've been unable to quiet these thoughts...

I lost a good friend to it this September. in his fifties. the agony the patient goes through (sometimes the treatment IS worse than the disease), the suffering of family and friends, the helplessness of the medical community to heal.

    Sure enough, my mind was screwing with me. Had the eval today, and I passed, rating as a "solid performer" and an "asset to the Club." This means I'm off probation and am now permanent.

    Congrats, that's awesome! Those hefty holiday hour paychecks will be extra nice too.
