* Cee’s Share Your World

Thanks to Cee for her wizardry in photography and her Share Your World weekly challenge!  

What is your earliest memory?  I remember events from well before I was two years old because traumatic events stick so much more strongly than pleasant ones.  That’s probably why it feels like I recall every day of my life until I left home at 19.  I am grateful that our son has a relatively blank slate for his early years!   Thankfully, he doesn’t remember when I zipped up a certain body part into his cuddly sleeper or when I closed the trunk on his flexible fingers.

What was the last photo you took with your phone?   I took some selfies last night to use with a student as visual cues.  For some kids, that’s much more effective than saying a word.

Have you ever danced in the rain?  Yes, and on stage as well.  I was working with psychotic adolescents and we staged “Singing In the Rain.”  Don’t ask me why.  It was a series of traumatic moments for both teachers and students, since we had to practice for a month.  Between kids tantruming, spacing out, and having seizures, the final performance made for an eventful evening!

What is the longest you have gone without sleep?  I had to take an sleeping EEG, which meant staying up all night and then somehow, falling asleep at a clinic.  The room I was “resting” in was next to the nurses’  lounge, full of laughter with a door that repeatedly banged shut.  I never fell asleep, so it was the following night before I finally got some shut eye.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?    I am soooooo grateful that my dearest teaching widower did not leave town last week!  We have been enjoying his Father’s Day gift of the BBC series on World War II.  Awesome.  I am also grateful for the family that forgave me this morning for oversleeping and missing a tutoring session.  My phone’s ringer had been accidentally turned off by the selfie stick, so my alarm was all for naught.  I am looking forward to eating the goodies that another family gave me today!  Yum!!  Thank you, Golio!
