Goals and Gratitude – Day 11

Thanks for the follows!

November 2, 2011

Goal: Today is Take you Child to Work Day for LM’s grade 9 class. Fortunately, today is a very interesting day where I work, especially if you are a 14 year-old girl interested in fashion. My soon-to-graduate students are styling models for a hair and make-up fashion shoot required as a component of their program, and the shoot is, coincidentally, at the school today. This is relevant to my daily goal for one reason only: I want her think what I do is cool. A while ago she said to me that when people ask her what I do, she tells them I’m a writer. Which I was, have been, hope to be again. But when I took the contract to be the Senior Administrator of the college, writing, as many of you know, fell by the wayside. Today, I want her to see that a) what I do at the school is challenging, at times exciting, and demands skill; b) that I am proud of the work I do there and hope she is, too; and c) that I can be both, an Administrator and a Writer, hence my need to stay true to yesterday’s goal. I guess, in a nut shell, my goal today is to impress the heck outta’ my kid!

Gratitude: I just want to say thanks to all of the new people following me on Twitter (@theknowitallmom). For some reason, a lot of new folks are finding me and following, and that is very nice of them. So, “Thank-you”.
