Since I have closed out one chapter, I wanted to start a new journal filled with positives.

Fast currently is at 44h 12m.

Congrats on the new journal and a new life!

You can rise again with Easter. What an appropriate time to do so.

Happy Easter Pedi!

Thank you, everyone.

Just a quick check in before I start cooking Easter dinner for DM, DD, DH, and DS3. We are having ham, cauliflower & cheese, roasted broccoli, Cole slaw, and deviled eggs for the main meal. Appetizers are bacon wrapped little smokies and sausage stuffed mushrooms. Desert is a key lime pie or blueberries. I’m keeping it lower in carbs, so I don’t totally fall off the plan.

Everything is prepped and ready to pop in the oven when it is time! It all went together easily and I finished up an hour early and the kitchen is back to being clean!

Dinner sounds like it was delish. So happy you could spend it with your folks and at least one DS.

Dinner was very good, NM. The cauliflower “Mac” and cheese was a hit and will be made again.

I woke up stiff and sore this morning. I will do paperwork stuff today, but still will do my planned walk and arm workout. I may add some yoga stretches to help the stiffness.

I received an email from the Graduate Program Director with the kind offer of a reference letter and an open invitation to call him as needed. Apparently what happened is making itself known across campus and people are very surprised.

I did have a good laugh. Apparently the interim dean had SWMNBO and me taken off the nursing faculty email list. I am sure she did not want us to see the emails she was sending to the faculty. This morning, I received a notice that I have been put back on the list. My laugh is because, I do not think the interim dean made that decision and someone is making sure I can see what is going on.

I'm happy to hear someone is keeping you in the loop. It will be interesting to see if you ever figure out what actually happened. Somewhere something got crossed and man I can't help but believe SWMNBO took you down with her. Happy to hear there are many who want to help you and are in shock of what happened.

I hope the yoga helped with the stiffness you're feeling.

Thanks, NM. I am not as stiff today.

Interestingly the consultant has uncovered many of the out of our hands factors such as budget cuts, faculty layoffs, and mandated large enrollments. It gives me hope that she will be able to tell the Provost that given everything we had to work with, it is a wonder the school is still going.

I have a massage later today that I am looking forward to.

I'm happy to hear you will have the backing of the consultant. Not that it changes your status etc, but it may smack them over the head.

Speaking of, have you heard anything at all from the resumes you have sent out?

Your massage sounds wonderful.

I’ve only sent out 2, NM and they were both for university positions. I am not sure that is where I want to land. I will sent out the Project Manager one this week. I’m not sure where the Consultant stands, but at least she has uncovered all of the issues that administration caused and then tried to bury!

New avatar is nice.
If/when consultant files a final report, it would be really nice to see a copy of what is said. I hope your contacts can continue to keep you posted on what is happening.

I can’t guarantee I will get a copy, Rig, but I think I will hear what is in the report.

Yes I realized just 2, but it would be nice to hear something so you know if there are options there or not.

I hope you do find out what is in the report. Would be nice to know exactly what happened to cause all the hoopla. How's the interim holding up or haven't you heard after you asked students to ask for help.

Love the new avatar as well. Onward and upward!

I know the interim dean is stressing because she asked the dept. chair why I wasn’t dealing with my “advisee” students’ paperwork. The dept. chair had to tell her they were not my advisees and that the paperwork has to be completed by whomever is over the MSN. Of course she is just a puppet and is not really in charge of anything.

I think the dept. chair will share any insights from the consultant. I do not really feel like I’ve had any closure as to why my teaching contract was not renewed, but I doubt I will get any.

I guess the interim just found out another item that was overlooked when you just decide to dump a key person. Glad the Dept chair is able to "share" the news and enlighten her to more missed issues.

I too hope you find out why your teaching contract was dropped. Only thing I can think of was the made up student complaints from SWMNBO'd a year or so ago.

True NM, but there were no further complaints (of course), so I’m at the interim dean was afraid to keep me on because I am more faculty friendly and not psycho! The person they are trying to put over the MSN emailed asking me for what she needs to be turning into the various agencies. I told her I had left everything with the dept. chair and she could find all the information on the various websites (which is how I learned).

My hair appointment went well and I can already tell I got a much better cut. My regular person left because she is pregnant and I am back with the owner. I will stay with her again for now.

I did make a one time offer to sit down with the consultant and answer any questions she might have. Totally her choice. I thought it might open the door for her to see first hand the error of their ways.... Rolling Eyes

I also refused to sign the contract to put together the summer courses. They lowballed the hourly rate and the time it will take to do what they are asking. It will not hurt me, I know how to set up my own courses. It will hurt everyone else. I am waiting to hear back from them. I will not let them take advantage of me, which it feels like they are trying to do. It is definitely a dumpster fire and I don’t know how they are going to get through it.
