So last week completely wrung me out here on Ask Moxie. It was just too much, and I lost a lot of sleep over it. I was thinking about it, and decided that the first week of school is just way too emotional and fragile a time for me, so from now on I'm going to take an Ask Moxie vacation the first week of school.
I'm still trying to decide if I have it in me to file a formal complaint against the teacher from last year. I know nothing's going to happen to her and she'll still be doing the same stuff to kids every year until she decides to retire, so it doesn't seem like the effort would be worth it, except that it might help me get over it.
