Yesterday was my first official day back to work.  8 hours of training at the convention center.  My brain was a little fried by the time I got home and now I'm preparing to do it all again.

Shortly after getting home all of us were in the car heading to orientation for Rocco,Noahkeem, and Dolly.  I found out that Dolly has to wear a "uniform" of some sort, which I thought I read the exact opposite in the student hand book.

 I kept asking myself, "Really?" 

It got to the point where I nissed some of the things that were being said during the meeting because my mind was was bent toward remembering what I read in the hand book and I knew that I did not read anything about uniforms for Kindergartners. I have yet to check my hard copy.

I don't think I had one moment yesterday to think any thoughts that belonged to me except:
  • I'm hungry.
  • I really wanted to go to another session.
  • How long til the break?
  • Is it raining outside?
  • What are the kids doing?
  • Am I going to pass the assessment test?
  • What will my new students be like?
If you asked me what I learned yesterday, I can only say I learned a lot about relationships and crisis intervention.  If you ask me in a couple days, I probably could give you more details.  Sad to say.....or maybe not so sad to say, only 2 things stood out for me the entire day.

                            "When people don't feel safe they manipulate people and places".

The other thing is what I realized on my drive home from orientation, the last thing I thought about before I went to sleep last night, and the first thing that I thought about when I woke up this morning:

                                                           I am redeemed.
