I started strong.

I want to stay strong!

I’m subbing at the school where Nick received his award last spring for getting a “distinguished” on his portfolio……..

Today is that same annual awards day.

I just can’t go in the gym. I don’t want to make a scene. So I’ve slipped back up to the science classroom where I was writing a letter for a teacher and I’m trying to keep my boundaries in “pleasant places” even though I’m a little tickled that my “pleasant place” today is in a room with a live bird!

Leave it to Nick to give me a reason to smile even in the midst of teary eyes.
