So many kids, I don't know what to do.

Good News/Bad News

I was tentatively offered at school a chance to go to a conference.  I was given a list of dates and told to pick a weekend.  Of course I picked the conference in Vegas for the weekend. I am not dumb.

I never heard from an administrator and only heard from my colleagues, my school besties,  that we were not approved.  I got over it.

I just got an email in my box that "they" have paid for me to go to training.

Not in Vegas, but in Fort Worth.
Not for a weekend, but right in the middle of the week.
Not with my "besties" but with - I don't even know.

I am not sure if the news is worse for me......February in Fort Worth.  (Did you know that Dallas is ranked number 1 for weather related deaths in the U.S.)  (Or at least it was...I haven't Googled it lately.)

Or if it is worse for The Coach.  He is perfectly competent though. I am sure he can get all five kids to school single handedly.  Shouldn't be a problem.

Sigh.

(I'll take plenty of pics.  Of Fort Worth.)

  1. Well, you could visit the Stockyards and all the cowboy museums...think of it as visiting history instead of making history (in Vegas). ;o) Happy Trails!

  5. Seems like a pretty lame consolation prize...compared to Vegas... on the weekend... with your besties. At least it's a free trip though. Hope it turns out to be a lot more fun than you are anticipating and that the Coach survives without you.

    I am so excited that my husband has to take care of my kids during the week this week. I wish I could videotape it.

  11. Fort Worth is great! If you like cows. I lived just outside Fort Worth for eight years, so I know all the good places. Or I used to at least.
