    Got an email and a paper note from my daughter's Catholic K-8 school today inviting parents to a meeting about the school's future Thursday night. Representatives from the Archdiocese will be in attendance. My daughter has a year left there before HS and I fear the message is a closing. Other eighth grade options locally are unappetizing. I feel really bad that I strongly recommended the school to a friend that has three kids there (two firsts and a third). I am not pleased with the Archdiocese of Indianapolis right now. #numbercrunchersforthepope

    I never really minded it. The only challenge I've found throughout the whole process is finding the most qualified person who will fit in with and work well with the rest of the staff.

    We got 100 applications for a housing counselor position that we interviewed about 10 people for. We weren't on fire about any of them. My boss said she needed my help this time because I'm generally better at selecting candidates to interview and vetting them. Guess it's all those years as a restaurant manager that comes into play.

    There is one inspector usually ask if I am going to be on site during an inspection or ask the GC to call me to come to the site. He asked him why once and he told him that I was one of the best project managers of the non-profit builders in the city and likes to pick my brain on other issues. Guess it helps that I rarely fail an inspection and am always willing to give them whatever information they require.

    You know, it's often lonely around City Hall when the meeting's over and you are so ticked off about the tabling of your perfectly reasonable proposal that you feel compelled to stay, look stuff up in State Code and prove the bastards wrong.

    If I sit here alone muttering to myself about how unfair it all is will I start referring to myself in the third person and become gollum? Chubby, big-haired gollum? I think I'm OK with that right now.

    I promised to post more later in the day so that's what you get folks. Now go make whoopie.

    It was a good suggestion but it didn't work. For some reason the website didn't show up in my list of saved passwords. When I go to the site it automatically logs me in but I don't know with what!

    Can't you always reset your password once your logged in? You should always be able to do that. Also in the settings you should be able to view what the email is to login. If not, from a different web browser, log in "say forgot passowrd" and than have it emailed to you, but i guess that doesn't help when you forgot the email you signed up with

    Lately here, they close Catholic schools at the end of the school year; they used to give a year's notice, which gives families time to protest. I hope you get the extra year.

    I will say, though, that my decision to move my sons to public school was harder on me than it was on them, and they flourished. I think that their attending Catholic school was more important to me than it was to anyone else. (Maybe this belongs in the confessions thread....)

    We know a couple of families where this has happened and exactly the same thing, the kids did great and didn't miss a beat. One kid in fact came out of his shell and has turned into a very happy child instead of a sullen quiet one.

    I am a firm believer in befriending folks that are smarter than me. Of course it is not beneath me to blackmail those I am incapable of befriending.

    I just had the same thing! I'm adding extra credit Thursday for a workshop in the large 'burb next door about long range water planning, working a booth for my community.

    I think the announcement will be that this is the final academic year for the school (ending a 160 year run). My daughter is very meek and shy and I think she wouldn't be comfortable in a large jr high. We've decided that if the closing happens, she'll finish in a small parish in the town next door, or go to the jr high at my son's sr high. I'm just really honked off about this because if you kill this inner-city, mostly older parishes school, you drive another nail in the parish coffin.

    I think it's time for RJ and ZG to take a trip. I want to see another of their photo tours of the towns they visit. It's been to long since the last one.
