I am open

It's New Year's Eve, Saturday, December 31, 2016. I'm not the type of person to engage in a look back and make resolutions based on some particular day on the calendar. Or at least, I don't like to think of myself as that type of person. And yet, here I am writing this four hours before 2016 ends (at least in my time zone). So here we are. Before we go any further I want to put you on notice that I am going to be sharing specifics. Things may get ugly, raw and hard to read. Feel free to stop right here and return to whatever you were doing before you came across this post.

Masters Swim

I had planned to sleep until 5:30 this morning and just skip the swim workout. But, I was up at 3:30. I took care of some business and decided that I might as well head out to the workout.

I don't think I've ever had one time yet that I wasn't glad that I got up to do the swim workout. Jeff wasn't there today and Jim was prepared to run things. He put together a really interesting workout, including doing things like "pins" and vertical kicking.

Now that we've got that straightened out

I was able to pick up my summative evaluation yesterday and drop it off with the rest of my paperwork. That's the good news. The bad news is that my supervisor had written a rather scathing review; I won't get into that, though. So, now I was in the position that the evaluation could prevent me from being considered for substitute teaching. When I dropped off my paperwork I explained what the situation was with the review and also told my side of the story.
