It would appear I need to take a break from this blog or censor my thoughts even more than I already do. Is it possible that one of you readers out there has a connection to my school district? Someone operating a Mac from Sunnyvale, perhaps? Because oddly enough, I just got a call from our director who asked me (rather peculiarly) if I'd received her message from earlier today about a meeting time. And she addressed me by saying, 'Is this Deb?' NOT Debbie. NOT typical. Seems a little too coincidental that within moments of my post about her not returning my calls (which I have since deleted) she would call me to check if I'd received her earlier message, don't you think?

In the spirit of my last post: feck, feck, feck. I am not pleased.

Edited to add: Hey,'ve been on my site for nearly an hour now and read 27 different pages. I would love to think that you are a parent, like me, dealing with the trials and tribulations of parenting a child with autism. Unfortunately, I am feeling really skeptical and quite possibly a little paranoid at this moment since this involves MY CHILD and his well-being. Whoever you are, I would love it if you'd email me personally:
Thanks a bunch!

This is why I have a public site & a private site (password protected). I know every single person who's on my private site, and trust them. And that's where I talk about school stuff. Works out well for me. Since it's private, I made a google group that will email them my blog post so they don't have to keep checking to see if I've posted something.

Good idea! The more I think about it, though, the more I feel okay with her reading this blog and knowing just how bad things are with my son...largely in part from the services provided by my district. Detrimental and awful.
Plus, I have never named specific names or specifically where I live.
But still!!!

Deb, of course I am not in your shoes, but I am a big believer in open and honest communication. Without that, what can possibly be accomplished?

So I say, IF your message of frustration DID get through to the source via your blog, perhaps that is for the good.

Perhaps I am naive, but I think the more all are in touch with the true reality, the more effective they can be.

"The truth shall make you free," kinda.

But then I acknowledge that I am only a bystander, not walking in your shoes.

Thank you for your comment, Joan. I totally agree with you about open and honest communication...I am a huge proponent! I guess that's another big reason why all of this school business has me down. I have always done my best to forge positive relationships, and somewhere along the line this one went south and has become a bit vindictive. Me no likie!
I also agree that maybe the district reading all of this isn't such a bad thing either, but I suppose only time will tell.

Hey Deb,

I'm one of those less frequent, more pages at a time readers, so for the record... when you see this computer, it's just me.

miss you-
