I get by with a little help from my friends....

For those of you already tuned into my life, you have already heard about my week from Hell. For the rest of you, here is a brief synopsis:
1.Budget at work is going to shit, major cutbacks, my counseling partner is out. My work load for next year literally doubles.
2. Husband who works in same district with me has his position cut and he is not sure where he will be placed. We know he has a job, but where is the question.
3. Went to kindergarten roundup and was disgusted by the hoity toity, dripping with diamonds, rich stay at home moms. I was simultaneously jealous and disgusted.

So, you can imagine my surprise and appreciation when I was nominated for an award by one of my best friends, Julie. Julie is one of the smartest, most centered, and nicest women I am lucky enough to know. So coming from her this award means a lot! Here are the fun details along with links to the wonderful women I would like to nominate too!

(((hugs))) So sorry that is going on in your work place, too! We haven't been able to get a levy passed (I'm thinking the last 3 times). I don't work there (I'm a "normal" SAHM - no bling here LOL), but I know the school needs money and is going in the red. They have been cutting back, too, and are discussing more cuts if the next levy doesn't pass - such horrible times - thanks to you know who! Won't go there, at least he's gone!

Thanks so much for that wonderful award, you! I'm going to have to think about who to give it to.

Have a great weekend, Chris, if you can!
