Day 10

I'm not sure whether or not to classify today as a fail.  I feel like I gave a lot all day since Isabella and I picked up our schoolwork today.  That, and I spent more than an hour on the phone with a friend who teaches in an inner city school and had to comfort two of her students break down in class in tears because of problems at home, on top of already being emotionally overwhelmed.  She's an awesome teacher, which naturally makes it hard sometimes to separate emotionally from kids who come from broken homes, dealing with adult problems.

Since the day went by in the blink of an eye, I had planned to donate to a charity online, but I unwittingly  dozed off with Paloma when I put her down for the night.
