I got it!

I got it!

It meaning the sick leave request okayed. Or at least I think it's okayed. Someone told me it was okayed but there are other someones who don't know that it's been okayed. So I am somewhat certain it's okay but I shall not be letting loose with any loud joyful noises yet.

Dad is still in the hospital. Prognosis is that tomorrow should be the the day of catch and release from the cardiac unit. There seems to be conflicting info coming out about all the cardiac stuff so I guess we'll have to see what the discharge papers say.

I have done some work to get ready for the long term sub and gathered papers and the dreaded outline for the state report that will be done in my absence. The state report is akin to a small child driving their freshly sharpened pencil through your eyeball. Repeatedly. Just sit back and listen....

"X state doesn't have a climate."

"X state doesn't have a governor."

"What do you mean by political party?"

"I can't draw that flag. It's too hard."

"My state doesn't have any major cities."

And on and on it goes until you realize that it would be easier to write the reports yourself.

That's all I've got. Hope you're all doing well.

Yeah for you! How long is your leave for? I hope it does you well. I will keep your dad in my thoughts.

Yay about the sick-leave!! I really hope you can take a lot of time to relax, like you need to do.

I am keeping your father, yourself and your family in my thoughts.

The leave is through the end of January and then it will be re-evaluated to see if it needs to be extended or if I'm good to go back.

Thanks for the support,

So glad you got it!! You won't have to travel to the school everyday will you? Just get everything ready for the sub, then take your time off?

No more traveling to work at 6:30 or writing plans for a long time. I can sleep, if I can train my wonder feline to stop hacking up and meowing at me non-stop in the morning.
