Good Morning,Doris. It was good to hear from you. Sorry to hear Ken is having troubles. Do you think it is fr the surgery he was supposed to have? Russ and I both had colds and right now I have conjunctivitis in my eye. It is getting better. Russ's nose came out great. It was basal cancer. Yesterday the surgeon injected it and he goes back in 5 months while she does more stuff. This afternoon he sees his heart doctor. These "golden years" are so much fun. TOPS today. I am trying to get rid of being Leader but not having much luck. BG 102. I hope you are in good control. Give Ken my best Take care. HUGS,Reed

Doris...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 after I came back from co-teaching a RCIC class at church (Right of Christian Initiation for Children)...almost to midnight, here at Tu., for a bit...then looking for teaching material related to Groundhog 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 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, 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

Cheer up girl...the new year is only starting. Lots of wonderful and exciting things will still happen. I think the "flu" or bug epidemic there in the US has been terrible this year. Heck even my father in law had it for a week...He coudnt shake off his cough and fever. After several shots...he finally rid of it last week, thank God!
Hope you guys are feeling much much better now. Kids are okay now too? Rest up my dear friend...dont forget lots of fluids. endo p***ed me off. Im hoping to find one by next week to get a new batch of blood works for the year. I hadn't had any since September of last year. So Im supposed to have another last December...but that's when my dilemma with my doctor started. Oh well...

Happy new year dear Doris! Been wondering what on earth you up too...hmmm? Is everything okay? How have you been? Im doing pretty good. Since I lost snowy...its been pretty sad every time we go for walks and travels. I miss her so much. Im also scouting for a new endo doctor. My old one p***ed me off. Its a long story...Id tell you about it next time. It's been a dreary rainy cool January here. I love the coolness...I hate the rain. I guess better that than 98F scourging heat huh.

Hello Doris. I think I am getting Russ's cold. I feel miserable. He had his nose finished yesterday. Tom saw it and says it looks great. I cannot as he is all bandaged,. He takes the bandage off for good tonight. Has to clean with peroxide and add a salve BUT if he goes out he has to cover it. This started 12'/3 ended 1/3. He goes back Wed to get stitches out. My BG 104. I pray I do not get that awful cough. Dark dreary drizzle here. Hope you and Ken both doing well. Still have to take down the tree. Take good care and give Keb my best. You babysitting? Hugs,Reed

Here we go again,Doris. Another year. HAPPY NEW YEAR. May the year 2013 be a good and healthy one for us all. I have been up since 5. Russ has a wicked cold but the coughing is non stop. I hope they do not cancel the final surgery on his nose tomorrow. BG 106. TOPS today. I bet there will be a lot of gains. How are you doing? Your Readings pretty good? And my friend Ken is he doing ok? Give him my best. Did you get any snow? Take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed
