Is Mercury in retrograde or something? Nothing seems to be going right this week. We are in the uncomfortable position of having to fire one of our young workers for a number of reasons, and as we go through the process more and more things come to light that just make the situation worse and worse. Just so very messy. My bestie in the States is having a rough time. I have a painfully sore throat and this morning woke up with pinkeye – just as Oz is getting over it (for the second time). At least I have all the drops and ointment I need stocked in the house. When DH came back from the middle east this last time, he brought me a set of evil eye bracelets and a necklace. I’m wearing them today. Sometimes I wish I was actually superstitious, it would be comforting to believe I had some control and these trinkets actually “worked.”
On the bright side, the children have been adorable lately – helpful, kind to each other, creative, and happy.
It’s the Chinese year of the Horse, and my daughter is a Rat, who supposedly have a rough time in Horse years. But my son is a Tiger, and Tigers supposedly protect Rats. Snakes and Cows (DH and I) are supposed to be having a good year. We’re hoping to transfer Illyria to a new school after Easter. I’m still terrified that they are going to reject her/us at the last minute. So, fingers crossed.
