One good thing about Daylight Savings Time...it was still light when I got home at 7:40 p.m. after parent conference night. Not full daylight, mind you. A pinky purple pastel Easter egg light.
So many hours of conference time, so little parent interaction. I had three visitors. Of course, more may have shown up during my 90-minute dinner break in another area of the building. But they didn't sign in. Didn't sign in, didn't happen. That's what Mrs. Hillbilly Mom says.
I had a visitor within the first fifteen minutes. Another about 100 minutes in. And the last during the last ten minutes. In between, I accomplished some tedious and menial work. Not enough. But it's a start.
Now I'm off to rest up for tomorrow. My 4:50 a.m. wake-up call comes mighty early. And I hear there's a new cold front in town just for my duty day.
