I think I know why I've been feeling so anxious the last few days. Today is Kindergarten Round Up day for Sissy. She and I will get to meet the teachers and she will be put through a battery of tests: eye exam, hearing, can she count to 10? (she can count to 100 and also do basic math), etc.
Yes, I've done this before - with Buddy - and I was just as nervous even though I knew everyone at his school. Buddy went to a private Catholic school. To the tune of many thousands of dollars a year. Well, we can't exactly afford that these days and also while I think it was beneficial to him to have a small class size, I don't think his education was superior to any school I ever attended.
So, Sissy will be going to the public school in our district. It is touted as the best around and I'm sure we'll be happy there. Plus, we'll be able to take a vacation every year or three (as opposed to no vacations ever, because all the money was spent on tuition).
Anyhoo, even though I've been through this with Buddy, it was a different school and different circumstances. Today will be a new adventure. And, I really don't like "new" or going to places I've never gone before. It kind of makes me want to have diarrhea. Know what I mean?
I don't care what they think of me, personally, but I do care how I will react in a situation. I mean, I'm a nice person and I like to joke around, but some people don't "get" my sense of humor.
I never want to be "one of the crowd", but I also don't want to be a jackass:
Innit he cute? :-)
It's time for me to face the music and get ready for uncomfortable meeting of new people. Wish me luck! :-)
