I can barely believe it, but I had an actual good day at work today. I mean, there are still 15 minutes left so I probably shouldn't say anything but I'm pretty happy at the moment.

I wasn't panicking about the new variant but now I see cases rising in NYC, classes going remote, and I just can't imagine doing that again. I hated distance learning. So. Much. Just the thought of being asked to "pivot" again is awful, but I'm also cancelling our dinner reservations for NYE, safe do folks feel? Honestly? How safe do you feel about your kids being at school? No wrong answers, obviously

My boss is awesome. I work for the VA, so a gazillion people in our organization. Some jackass manager just hounded me via email about a document that we are totally on top of and have done everything we need to do with. Just very condescending to me with things like, "It's not that hard, just read the document." (I don't have authority to speak to the contents with him because, ya know, federal gov't, secret information kind of thing). Forwarded it to my boss asking for guidance. My normally mild mannered boss, who outranks the shit out of Jackass Manager (don't think he realized that he was my boss AND that we also happen to be work besties) just laid TF into him AND copied every single person Jackass Manager reports to. That's going to ruin his day. I love my boss. Did I mention he's awesome?

I wrote a referral for a kindergarten student who threw a chair today, and documented all of my interventions. Admin suspended the student. Parent asked me for documentation. I told her that I documented the incident but for other documentation to contact the admin. Admin called me at 6:30 me because parent is PISSED. I gently remind admin that I didn't suspend the student; he did. He asks me what I am doing to support the student and I list literally everything that could possibly be done. I'm following his Behavior Plan to a T. Sorry dude. You suspended him, not me, and it's not my first trip to the rodeo, LOL

Cool cool. So now what you're telling me is that CW can't ... lift, bend, reach, or (checks notes) do ANYTHING technology related. Got it. Fantastic. Great, thank you, boss, for the super helpful CW! I won't wind up doing half her shit at all!!

Dear Husband: Calling me and asking when I'm going to be done with work is, in fact, an interruption that prevents me from getting the work done so I can come home. I want to be home as much as you want me there. Now quit bugging me. LOL.

Ugh, I think housemate's work schedule changed. I enjoyed him out of the house because I finally had some peace and quiet to focus!

For the love of God, stop replying to all on emails. If the company sends an email to all 700+ employees reminding them to make a minor adjustment on timesheets due to the holiday, please do not reply to all 700+ employees just to say you made the change. How do people not know this? Seriously. And this is a professional cybersecurity company, so everyone is at a professional, college-educated level. It's not like it's a bunch of teenagers working their first job.

Before anyone starts berating teachers, just think about the fact that at any moment, at their job which is full of bureaucracy, red tape, tied hands (metaphorically), a hundred bosses (every parent thinks they are the boss, along with administration AND school boards).... just think about all that, the fact that the pay is mediocre at best, and the cherry on top is that at any moment, one of your students could just show up with an assault weapon and mow down anyone that gets in their path. Like what happened in Michigan yesterday, for like the 650th time this year alone. It's a shit job that nobody wants to do anymore. Can you blame them? I can't.

Why is my anxiety always sky high at the end of school breaks? It's not even the idea of going back to school. I think it's more the fact that I'm sick of being at home and feel like I'm wasting my time. I know it doesn't make sense but I wish today was over.
