May 26, 2017, Prescott-
In the interests of preventing further problems, for me and others, the chief of department has several questions, which she will raise next Wednesday. A lot of decisions with regard to children are made, based on second-or third hand information. There are specific program issues, personality clashes between adults (which do NOT take the children’s interests into account), and matters of style.
Memorial Day weekend has often been a time of deferring action, as there are many year end transitions that have to be accomplished, but people need respite. I once lived out of my car for the weekend, while a prospective landlord took time off. He, of course, blew me off on the following Tuesday, but I found a far better place in which to live.
This year brings a similar situation. The possibility of returning to working with a high school age population is still quite real, but will need to defer to the principle of rest, and to further discussions. My plan B is to be full-on with the Red Cross, though that will bring $0. Then, too, there is the option of moving into a less expensive community, and starting over. As I said, yesterday, quick, not dead.
