Don't know much...

i'm not sure what to write today; I just feel the need to write. Autumn is finally blowing into town, bringing with it a drastic barometric plunge and blustery winds. Along with the wind, the personalities of my students have blown into the dust. Back to harsh tones and rude comments to each other. Where did our form go? More practice.

The date is drawing near when my family's fate is more officially sealed. I meet with the powers that be next Tuesday and explain my plans and trudge through all the muddy emotions that will make the next 6 weeks almost unbearable. Despite their lapse in manners, my students have become very dear to me. I harbor tremendous guilt either way, but I have to come down on the side of my family and my need to be an effective wife and mother, especially in this time of transition. My own family has got to come first.

On the brighter side of things, our prospects are looking more promising than we originally thought. The possibility of staying in East Pete are slim to none, but potential roosts include: Rochester, NY; Lewiston, Maine; Ashville, NC, Tuscon, AZ, a few spots in Virginia. Some of them may be a real blessing, especially Rochester, which is, after all, the setting of my masterpiece YA! Think of the added research possiblities for my next one!

Ok--bearing up. Ready to face it. (I think I can...I think I can...)


  1. I know what it's like picking up "roots." Praying for you and your family during your time of transition.

  2. Bummer nothing on your list is close to us, but it seems like an exciting time is ahead of you. I think I'm not up-to-date on all the info, but I hope everything works out well for you! I'm sure you will all be fabulous wherever you plant yourselves.

  3. But you can't leave me - we've just me!!!! I need more sane people in this county!

    You are in my thoughts and prayers!

  4. have you considered Canada?

    *waves* Calgary is pretty nice. :)

  5. Hang in there. I hope wherever you land it will be a good place with kind people who will welcome you.

    My son's girlfriend is from Rochester. So is R.I.T. I believe. Good college.

  6. I hope all works out well for you - hum - I like the looks of the possible places - Asheville, NC - only a couple or so hours from me - but anywhere you go you will have so many opportunities - and you can get back to writing - all inspirational places - E :)

  7. I am a little over an hour east of Asheville. If you end up there, we'll get together!
