To keep this short......
I HATE days like this! I HATE that I am going to have a sleepless night tonight because of something that I feel I handled correctly, but ended up backing down to a misinformed parent. I HATE that I let myself down today by backing down. I HATE that my mind will not allow it to rest; that I'll keep revisiting the day and the "woulda/coulda/shoulda's".
I suppose I can wrap myself in all the Walker garbage; THAT might actually make me feel better right now.
