If I didn't know it before, I know it now.
Let me set the scene for you:
The last several weeks (yea, even months) I have been dreading this coming Saturday. You see, I am about to turn forty. I will admit I am not handling it well.
I thought I was handling it well at school and just breaking down (completely) at home but apparently not.
A few minutes ago I received a call from my principal's assistant. She called to tell me that he contacted her to have her get in touch with me so that I could contact him. (Awkward sentence, anyone?) I asked her if she knew what he wanted and she said he just told her that he wanted me to call him.
So.....my stomach was a little nervous but I called. Turns out, he just wanted to make sure that I was ok because he thought I looked a little off this week. He asked if it was because of my birthday (he knows it is my birthday because his birthday is the same day. Birthday twins!). I told him that was pretty much it and we talked for about ten minutes.
I thought it was really nice for him to call to check on me and I told him so.
So that confirms it.
I have the best principal in the world.
Annnnnddddd......I am again ETERNALLY glad that I am no longer in that job!
