Judith, I'd love to see what we can do to help you with the chat too, but it's hard doing so from afar. are you able to type in the "little window" just belopw where ppl are chatting? try again some time when just a few of us are on.
Hi Judith...dear dear lady!! Here's a wee update :) The weather has been so unpredictable here! Yesterday, we had rain, wind, fog and around 55F...snow pretty much gone. Today...a whole different story...20F...cold and blowing dry snow. I keep hoping for a snow day!! Here's a good one!! I discovered indirectly that come retirement...there is no dental insurance!! So will have to look for private coverage...another premium to pay!
What the heck is THAT all about?!! Geez...if there was ever a time when you DO need coverage, it's THEN, when your income is lesser. Sigh!!
My report cards are done and were handed in over a week before due date.
I feel....FREE!! Almost euphoric!!
I just hope than there wont be any changes to be made after they get proofread. Soon enough will be parent teacher interviews...and at end of February, prepping for the French club at school. Yesterday I was on the computer...till almost midnight, here at Tu., for a bit...then looking for teaching material related to Groundhog Day....in French! Found some!! Gotta love the internet!! Gotta love my printer! I print one copy....and use it as my master to print the rest at school. There's a lice infestation at school....I'm keeping my distance from any kid scratching their heads. I went to pick Mason (5) up early from school (I was working only till 2pm today). Mason wasn't feeling well...poor little peanut, burning up with fever and feeling SO miserable! So he's not going to school tomorrow, that's for sure! We're getting Stephen for the weekend. He's 2 1/2 now!! He's a little sweetie! Looking forward to it. Should be having Riley over soon (he'll be 3 in March), to keep everything fair. Well...tomorrow Friday!! I've been able to get a lot done at school, as all the grades 3, 4 and 5 are away for their 3 day Winter camp. Got lessons planned ahead, copies made, sorted out material and cleaned up supplies in my classroom!! In all my 11 years at the school, I have NEVER EVER found myself short of things to do!! Which is the way I like it....hate standing around!
So....have a great day tomorrow. A brand new (and short) month! I'm praying for a snow day at this end for tomorrow ;)
luv and baskets of hugs....linda
Hi Judith. If you removed your blog because you found my comment to be offensive or flippant, I'm really sorry. I can empathize with your walking problems since I'm also dealing with similar problems -- my knee replacement went well, but the other knee is really bad (I'm too old to have it replaced), and I have poor balance. Again I'm sorry for being insensitive.
Apologies for the late condolences on Brody. I was away. Oh, Judith, know how it hurts missing your dear Brody. So very sorry for the heartbreak. Grief is certainly the hardest emotion & you've had more than your share.
Thank you for the new year's wishes. Wishing for you everything wondrous & joyful for 2013.
So sorry to hear about Brody Judith...Losing a dear friend/pal, pet...is never easy. I just lost my Snowy December 19th...and I still sob in tears every time I think about her. Maybe Brody and Snowy are together paying now :)
“Your beloved and your friends were once strangers. Somehow at a particular time, they came from the distance toward your life. Their arrival seemed so accidental and contingent. Now your life is unimaginable without them. Similarly, your identity and vision are composed of a certain constellation of ideas and feelings that surfaced from the depths of the distance within you. To lose these now would be to lose yourself.” ― John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
Thank you for letting you constellation shine dear Judith! ♥ HAPPY NEW YEAR....to you and your family ♥
Hi Judith, thanks. We luckily went through Sandy without being affected. But many people around did lose their power. One friend had a new born and could not even heat up formulas for the baby. Another colleague's house was submerged by water and his whole family had to live in the shelter for weeks...
Your recent HA1c was 4.9 which is wonderful. How did you achieve that?
Kitties & keyboards are a dangerous combination. Wish there was a force field to safely keep them away from dancing on the keys. Benny deleted my entire email account--every folder gone. He's also made phone calls to a friend on Google Talk. So talented. I have to remember to close it down when I leave the room.
Happy the pic brought smiles. Brock's the most gentle, peaceful,easygoing soul I've met. A blind pitbull/American Bulldog mix. He's my Buddha boy. Brock accompanies me on presentations to schools. Loves kids.
For another smile, check out the Bentley & Orbit photo. Bentley's a Bloodhound mix puppy I recently adopted. The family has a mini pig. Bentley & Orbit snuggle & play. Best buds.
I added Brock's photo to test the problem you're having & also changed my profile pic (changed it back). I had no difficulties using the settings page. Glad you contacted Bradford. He'll know what to do.
