What a weird day today! The weather was strange… the moon was full… and people seemed to be out to get everyone today. I made the mistake of posting on my facebook account a very touchy subject in our small town. The 4-day VS 5-day school district work week. I enjoy the fact that

  1. Berlyn can’t physically / mentally do anymore classes during the week so he is only at school 4 days a week.
  2. I enjoy my husband working 4 10-hour days instead of 5 8-hour days.
  3. Every weekend with both my husband and my children are 3-day weekends!
  4. As a parent, I want my children to be at school for less time. I want them home more and not feel that I am using the school district as a babysitter. (When my kids are gone for long periods of time with school activities, I feel like a failure as a parent because someone else is raising my kids.)
  5. To change the back to the 5-day a week schedule, it mean that they school district will have to come up with $300,000 (approx) more and that means more job cuts!!! Can we really run a district with LESS TEACHERS / EMPLOYEES?

I ended up deleting 6 people off of my friends list from facebook. I was called selfish. I was called one-sided. I asked for no debate on my facebook page… and got a debate so I deleted posts.

I love my small town… I love living here and I love making our town a better place. That is what I will continue to do as well as I can!


But go and learn what this means: โ€˜I desire mercy, not sacrifice.โ€™ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.
