Someone else got tired of the X-mas music, and shut off the entire sound system. We're technically not allowed to touch the sound system (it's controlled by the mothership), but they're my new hero.

Ugh...you mean they were still playing Christmas music in January? I really find that offensive. I'm usually pretty offended by being subjected to Christmas music in the first place though. I think it was all those years of being subjected to it all working retail.
Don't get me wrong - I'm not entirely a Scrooge. It's the same with all music. I get tired of hearing the same songs all the time as it is. This is why I don't listen to the radio. While there is a certain amount of repetition with my CDs here and there, I do have a sizable amount, and check stuff out from the library and still buy new CDs when I must. I do admit listening to Xmas music is something that can get you in the mood for the holiday, but it really is the same 30+ songs on constant rotation, remade by this artist, etc. And most of the songs don't go very deep. That's why I'm thrilled whenever I find a song I've not heard before dug out from someone's catalog of songs that means a little something, and has some ties to the holiday. I love Fairytale of New York for that reason, which is widely seen as a Christmas song, even if it only barely references the holiday, and uses it more as a setting than a theme. Merry Christmas from the Family I found a cover from Jill Sobule first before I heard the original, but it's great. Christmas Card From A Hooker In Minneapolis from Tom Waits I never really thought of as a Christmas song until now, but is as much as Fairytale of New York, even if it never actually mentions Christmas, if I remember correctly.
Sorry, I am raving.

Rave away. This is the second year in a row that we've been forced to listen to Christmas music through mid-January. And it's the bad sort - including six different versions of Santa Baby, which is seven more than the world needs, at least according to my calculations.

Surgical team just came in to do an assessment. All is looking good, and I should be able to start clear fluids this morning. If that goes well, I'll be helped in to a chair, with the plan of eating food for dinner tonight.

Another night stay in ICU, and then hopefully moved to a normal room tomorrow, to begin moving around and true recovery.

Sounds good Menolly ... brilliant update ... but how did you manage to get a phone into ICU.

Am being moved out of ICU. Hopefully, I'll be able to get a full night's sleep without being woken every hour.

Discharge orders have been received! I'll be highly dependent on SD and Dam-sel for the next four weeks, at least, unless I do some rapid healing. But, I get to have uninterrupted sleep in my own bed.

Reconstructive surgeon stopped by. Follow up surgery to repair issues not addressed this time will most likely be three months out. But, she says that's same day procedure and not nearly as an intense recuperation.

So thankful all went well. Home is the place to be when you feel like a truck parked on you all night, which is probably how you feel. Unless the drugs are really good.... Smile

Time for me to rant.

I've been teaching for a number of years. A two-digit number. I have never had a class in it with more kids who have zero empathy, zero self-control, zero filter on what to say and when to say it. I was seriously wondering this morning if one of them is actually a sociopath. He's the worst, followed by a set of twins whose behavior level is that of Kindergartners, followed by two kids who can't seem to make a good choice if their life depended on it, and then some kids who would probably be fine if there weren't a handful of psychos disturbing the peace all the time. The tears, the meltdowns, the fistfights, the drama. I have had more kids in the principal's office in a week than in entire years of teaching. And this, week after week after week.

Last week, I felt like I was going to lose my s***, and it might be best for all involved if I just quit before I do. I wonder if I am toxic.

That isn't the feedback I am getting though, so I am trying to distance myself emotionally from the disrespect and meanness. I am teaching Bible lessons on being a good Samaritan. I am trying to encourage the few really super sweet kids who don't misbehave and are actually interested in learning something other than how to make their classmates cry or fight.

For a number of years, I've been asking God why I am teaching in a school with mostly rich and privileged kids anyway. There are scads of orphans and vulnerable children whose needs are more obvious... This week when I was at my lowest, I was asked to talk to someone about working in their startup school for vulnerable children. They work with prostitutes and trafficked girls. They find homes for unwanted babies, and have adopted some themselves. I admire and believe in their work. But.

There are other factors at play here, so I will keep you posted. I'm going to have a sitdown with them this week, hopefully. It would be a big change for me to leave the school I have loved teaching at and been grateful for for 12 years. But it might just be time.

TL,DR: I'm too stressed and thinking about a job change. Very Happy

I wouldn't last a day as a teacher. Probably wouldn't last an hour. Had the... pleasure of sharing a bus ride with a large number of middle school? high school? I don't even know - anyway, human younglings yesterday, and spent most of it trying to figure out if kids were getting more horrible, or if I'm just getting old. Part of me thinks I'm just getting old and that none of the language, littering, and general disrespect was anything new - but it seemed excessive. I don't know what the answer is.
