Changes are afoot in the Rule household…AGAIN. Just when things start settling into something close to normalcy I have to shake it all up again. A decision needs to be made tonight, and a very big decision indeed. We spent the afternoon having a tour of a school, we met the principal, saw the different class rooms, fields etc and Jessica has been offered a place.
We have a dilemma, the book list looks alarmingly different, the uniform is different, even the shirt cannot be recycled and she has to take a new subject as Home Economics is full, there is a place in musicianship which she has said she will take as she has done theory of music and piano for a few years. It is also the middle of a school year, and it is a BIG move for Jessica. She is up for it; I have given her what I consider the worst case scenario, being left out, having no friends and eating lunch alone. The up side of course is that she can then tuck into a really good book every break…I am sure she would agree with my upbeat take on being a loner? Of course some people are happy with their own company and that is fabulous and my tongue is NOT in my cheek, but my daughter does like to have friends and the thought of her coming home and crying on my shoulder will keep me up tonight.
The decision is difficult, but J has said that she really wants to move, even though she has not been unhappy where she is. The extra curricular activity list is extensive, the science block has some amazing opportunities, especially during transition year when they do forensics which is something J is very interested in. There are many sport choices and the practices seem to take place up to 4 times per week.
Kirstin will stay where she is, but we have put her name down for September 2008, she is the lucky one as it will be a new beginning for all the kids in her year which will make the transition a lot easier for her.
Of course all of this will propel me into an unsuspecting work force if I can find someone who will have me.
My C.V is varied and may be a great conversation starter in the office. I am a jack of all trades (master of none….shhhhh) from window displays, to banks, nursery schools to bar administrator and more. I am fairly sure my C.V gets filed under ‘desperate times call for desperate measures/when we can’t find anyone else’ when I send it in to agencies, of course this is a travesty of justice as I KNOW that I can do ANYTHING I set my mind to…don’t we all?
