it’s going to be a sprint until the friday before the wedding since my schedule is all switched around.
october can’t come soon enough because then i can access my vacation time and not go through this rigmarole.
My name is Penny Ray, and I’m a music parent. My husband and I have three teenagers: a sophomore who plays mellophone in her public high school marching band and French horn in the Wind Ensemble at school; an 8th grader who plays trumpet in the local home school concert band program; and an 8th grader on the autism spectrum who has not yet been introduced to a musical instrument.
My music experience is limited to the piano lessons that I begged for as a child (that proved piano was not my instrument) and to handbells at church beginning in my high school years. For most of my childhood, I attended a small, rural K-12 school with no band program.
That’s why I’m so glad my kids have the opportunity to march. In this post I’ll highlight 18 lessons that marching band teaches kids. […]
also could the world quit telling bisexual people that theyre pansexual okay if a person identifies as bisexual theyre fuckin bisexual, if a person identifies as pansexual then theyre fuckin pansexual youre not the fuckin orientation police
being on probation and not having access to vacation time is aggravating.
i emailed my scheduling manager yesterday about moving holiday time around so i can go to the wedding, but i don’t know if i can take off as many days as i would like. in an ideal situation, i would have friday off to drive in and then saturday for the actual wedding. depending how it shakes down, i may be driving in on saturday after working until midnight and grumpy, sleep-deprived maria is somebody nobody wants.
