I am a TA ~ Teacher Assistant ~ which means I help the teacher, kids and anything else that I am asked to do.
My first day back was one LONG meeting!!
Second day back was more meetings and reading and signing papers ~ Employee Handbook, Bloodborne Pathogens, Sexual Harrasment, Diabetes Awarenss Review, Seclusion and Restraint and Email Acceptable Use. While all these are necessary ~ what I don't understand is why I have to read/watch them every year!! This took almost a half a day and the last one I just did at home. Finally got in the room to work after lunch.
Days three and four where ~ cleaning, arranging the furniture (which was stacked for the summer because that is what we are told to do), writing names on folders, running off papers,
rehanging posters, bulletins boards, door decorations, wall decorations, laminating, name tags, lunch table tags etc etc.
Plus this year I am being shared between Two teachers so I had to do most of this twice!
This will be a Very Hard Year!!

My grandson's white blood count was up when he went back to Duke on Monday. It is still low so he has to go back for more blood tests next week. The Hematologist thinks it might have been a virus. I am just so happy that is wasn't anything serious!!! Still a little worried and will be until the doctors say for sure he is completely healthy!

Please Pray for My Grandson!!
He was running a fever all week so his pediatrician sent him to Duke University Children's Emergency room on Friday. They ran many blood tests,a urine test and a chest xray. His white blood count was very low. They gave him an IV antibiotic and sent him home. On Saturday his parents had to take him back for more blood tests and antibiotic. Tomorrow (Monday) they have to go back to the Duke Children's Hospital for more blood tests and meet with a Hematologist. His white blood count has gone up. We are praying that it will continue to go up and he is completely healthy.

you go to Lowes to get wood and use your John Boat to haul it home in. That's exactly what my son in law did. He has an eight foot truck bed and needed to haul sixteen foot long lumber so this was his solution. Pretty ingenuous!
