    Yesterday day we played a version of Hungry Hungry Hippos where teachers were on rollers and being pushed in by another teacher and the person being pushed was catching balls in a laundry basket It was so much fun and our students loved it.

    Snow day! They don't happen here very often so it will be fun here for those of us that don't have to drive anywhere.

    As many of you know I volunteer for a youth homeless shelter on Monday nights.

    I had to wear my overalls because my left hand isn't up to par so I looked a little different from the rest of the women in my committee. Not that I dress up, but we were doing job workshops so I wanted to look a little more put together.

    Anyhoo, a young man sat next to me and he didn't really engage but kept opening a piece of paper that had a list of his accomplishments at the shelter. So that I could see it.

    The workshop we did was job preparedness. Holy wow!!!! These two co-leaders of my committee did a fantastic job. Long post short I was paired with a young woman who wanted a job at Olive Garden (in real life, she was denied) and we worked together and she gave me a double high-five and hugged me at the end of the workshop.

    I've never been to Olive Garden but I kind of want to make a viral post how they denied a homeless youth access to independence.

    Why did they turn her down? Was it age or experience? Do they have a starter or paid intern program?

    I don't know. We were talking about writing thank-you notes after an interview. Many talked about what they would write after the interview and then backed that up by 'and if I didn't get the job'. These kids are so used to having the world say 'no' to them.

    We are not supposed to touch the youth, but she opened her arms to hug me. It was the best rule I've ever broken. My heart is so big and happy today!
