Meetings...anyone else bored yet?

Sign in to follow this  


I call two major, mandatory, cannot refuse, if your name is on the invite your ass needs to be in the conference room meetings a year.  

That's not so many.  Once in the summer, once near end of year...it's not that intrusive to meet twice a year.

For four hours.  Okay, that's a lot...but it's not my fault.  This is how we, as a whole, decided to meet this part of the standard so they aren't so much my meetings as our collective meetings upon which we agreed.  I just set the agenda, run the meeting, hold people accountable for action items, and verify that the minutes are thorough.


And make sure someone remembers to order lunch.

But somehow these meetings got named after me.  Having a town or a street named after you is an honor - having the most teeth numbingly boring meetings of the year named after you is thinly veiled contempt.  


I have 37 minutes to get myself into the frame of mind to appear alert for the next 4 hours.  All good vibes sent my way appreciated.

Did I mention this meeting is 4 hours?  I am going to fly through this agenda and we can end this in 3-3.5 if I can avoid the following.


I need coffee.

      I do think Ezra turned 14 this year. I think Ezra and Simon are less than 2 years apart. While all the rest are around two years apart. 

      Ah you're right Ezra turned 14 in May. I thought his birthday was in the late fall / winter like the other kids. It looks like Simon and Della are almost 3 years. Then she really hits her stride: Della and Evy and Nola are a couple months shy of 2 years, Evy and Nola and Theo are a few months over 2 years, Theo and Honor are two years and a month, and Honor and Shiloh are also 2 years and a month. The new babies will be about a 1 and a half years younger than Shiloh.

      I grew up in a rural area, all the grade schools were K-7, high school 8-12.  The really really rural schools were K-12.

      I graduated from a rural K-12 school(one wing was K-6, the other 7-12).  They’ve always had full-day K except for one year in the 50s when there were so many kids that they had to have half-day sessions.  And my mom was part of their very first kindergarten class in 1950.
