The week in review...

Wrote about 5000 words on the next novel.

Spent countless hours as a parent representative for my kid's school on a panel, interviewing principals. Eighteen of them, to be exact. My brain is fried.

And now I know the principal buzz words: Respect. Dignity. Wiping down tables in the lunchroom (I swear to God, at least 15 of them said they do this). Team player. Facilitator. The teachers work the hardest. Greeting the kids when they come off the bus. Shooting baskets with the kids at recess. Honor, respect, dignity (over and over). Engagement. Enthusiasm. High expectations.

Boy. That was interesting.

What did YOU do this week??

I read an actual book. I tend to buy books and then not read them - except when I go on vacation, which is where I was. :)

I was respecting your dignity while I was wiping down lunch tables. I was very enthusiastic about respecting your dignity. I did not get engaged. It's not legal in California.

Oddly, I was doing pretty much the same thing. But then I get paid to. Well, after a fashion...
