christmas, christmas, christmas….full of fun, occasionally frantic.   along with the usual all-out preparation that goes with putting up trees and lights, practicing multiple musical selections, and purchasing presents, we had a little head-lice problem at school.   actually, i never found nit one, but i had to check a bunch of adolescent scalps when there was a report of infestation by a parent.   then there was the “day of bad romance” when i had to calm the aching hearts of several teen-agers (mostly boys, believe it or not) and referee a little mean-girl dispute.  throughout it all, i managed to catch a little streptococcal bug right after slaying the rhinovirus.

but it’s all good…i’m feeling mostly back to human again…and we’re moving right along.
