I mean the 8th grade boy was ready to KILL the sped kid he was chasing. An elderly teacher had him in a restraining hold from behind and he dragged her the whole length of the hall. When the sped kid got to the stairs and found them blocked by exiting third floor students, he tried to climb the railing to jump over down to the entryway (from the 2nd floor). Luckily he fell back and I was back from calling the office and was able to physically place myself between the assaulter (with the other teacher still restraining him) and the kid on the floor. The principal arrived about then and the kid kicked a trash can right behind my back. It sounded like a gun shot. Several teachers told me later they thought I had been shot. So yeah. I've started drinking and have felt on the verge of tears since I got home.
    WOW!!! Teachers definitely don't get paid enough! Sending hugs and positive thoughts your way Gutmutter. Have a serene and restful weekend.

    Thank you, Lil Bit. I got a good night's sleep with a little help from my friend, Margarita. Now I'm ready to make the weekend all about ME.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    I mentioned in another thread that my grandma hasn't been well. I got word today that she has died.

    At first, I wasn't going to go to Iowa for the funeral but it was nagging on my mind so I've decided I will go. I haven't visited my family there since my mom died and my grandpa is still alive. He's 91 so this might be my last chance to see him.

    I'll be leaving Tuesday morning and coming back Saturday afternoon. I have relatives to stay with in Iowa.

    I'm glad that my grandma is not suffering. I'll miss her terribly but cherish the time I did get to spend with her.

    I know you were thinking of trying to see her, but I'm glad you're going for the funeral. I was in Africa when my father died with no way to get back in time. Those kind of "rituals" are deeply important. I'm so sorry for your loss.
