Today my five day assignment was up at the glorious high school I was working at.
And then the secretary made murmurings about the school keeping me til June which, pfffshaw… I would not accept.
Because… You know… because I only need 3 more days to get my 100 days to qualify for insurance next year. Why bother? I’d stay home… finish my script. Help my grandma move into her new retirement home.
Nope, I was going to stick to my guns.
Unless I negotiated a few extra days off in between since I have my sick days piled up.
And the thought came to me that I want to go see Les Miserables with my kids and my pastor.
And, well, even with that kind of fun fact laid in front of me, I knew wouldn’t actually say yes to this madness.
Except I did.
And you know what? It felt right in the end.
So tonight I cleaned out my garage and ate enough matzah covered in peanut butter to kill a small farm animal and binge watched Grace and Frankie in half celebratory half “Oh my god really I’m doing this again FUCK” fear.
But overall, I’m happy.
Anything exciting going on for you in the next month? Leave a comment or I’ll have to post video of me making tacos singing “Do You Hear the People Sing???”
Happily Ticked Off Tip #46: Sometimes what you think you’re going to say no to you say yes to and it all works out if there is extra carbs and money to go to the theater at the end of the day.
My book is available on Amazon. (Note: It’s a special ed journey… your kid doesn’t need to have Tourettes to relate!) Follow me on Twitter@AndreaFrazerWrites or on Facebook.

Exciting? Not really. But my daughter will be awash with activities until graduation so I get to be a bystander
LA, I think that’s pretty exciting.
