Who's ready for the long weekend???

Wednesday evening. You know, it's really tragic how little holiday spirit I have this year. Work is just crushing me right now and I can't wait for the next few weeks to pass so that it will settle back down. I'm also really stressing out about Alcott (my CASA kid) and all of the things I'm supposed to do immediately after I'm assigned that I haven't even started yet. Things like going to the social worker's office to read the entire file, meeting with his teacher, therapist, medical doctor, dentist, the group home administrator, his parents (separately, of course), and - oh, yes - Alcott himself! Argh. I feel completely useless right now and I just hate that feeling. Perhaps I should have waited to be assigned until after the holidays, but I just didn't want to leave him all alone and wondering if he'd ever be assigned a CASA.

Three days off. In a row. Without any obligations of any kind. Heaven.
