Wow! Up to 1000 Photos!
I went to change my profile pic, and saw that we can add MORE pix! So for anyone interested, stop in my photo gallery - I put in some pix from the wedding (both civil and church ceremonies) and some other Pucallpa family pix. It was nice to revi... Read more
Old Is When
I signed up for an exercise class and was told to wear loose-fitting clothing. If I HAD any loose-fitting clothing, I wouldn't have signed up in the first place!
When I was young we used to go "skinny dipping," now I just "chu... Read more
Change Is In the Air
I rode in to school this morning with my coworker Becky. As the morning progressed, I began to feel "bubblegut" - rumblings in my intestines, and a certain "urpiness." When I prepared to go outside with the teacher, I told her I wasn't feeling q... Read more
Those of you following my blog know I've been having issues with the teacher with whom I work.
Yesterday she had another meeting with me, basically to make sure I don't mess up her formal observation next week, and to call attention to the ... Read more
It's an interesting school year, to say the least. I am challenged by the teacher with whom I work - challenged to keep silent, challenged to weigh everything I DO say so as not to offend inadvertently, challenged NOT to contribute - having been... Read more
Back from a Relaxing Weekend
I have 3 special friends from my adolescence. We used to try to get together once a year...now we try for once a month. I have been friends with Vikki for FIFTY YEARS! - with Carol for 49, Sue about 47 or 48.

Taking a Break
I have mentioned problems I'm having with the present teacher with whom I work.
So for my first break, I went to hang out in the classroom of LAST year's teacher (at his invitation.)
He happened to be doing a review of the continents, from a... Read more
I finally bought a new dryer. I've been buying used appliances for years. This one was taking a good 3-4 cycles to dry a single load, and I decided it was time to just up and get a new one.
It arrived yesterday, and I paid for installation... Read more
Loss and Gain
I lost some sleep...now and then my brain just switches on, like 2 HOURS before my alarm! So, I pray, and if I can't get back to sleep, I get on my bike...so Iput in 15 minutes this morning. That's a gain for exercise! But...I know I'm gonna fe... Read more
I Feel Better Now
The teacher with whom I have been having issues - with whom I work - was in early so I asked if I could talk to her; and she reiterated how I come across as being shady, by saying something good and then "BUT", instead of just being positive (it... Read more
Do I Shine Too Much?
I'm on break at school. And I have to vent.
It's work related. I really like the teacher I work with, I respect her abilities and all that. But I feel like she's the only one allowed to use her abilities and I'm not allowed to "shine" in anyth... Read more
Dog Memories Part One
I was enjoying reading a Sparkbuddy's blog that talked about her pup's busy-ness and it brought to remembrance some of my dog experiences.
We used to have 4 miniature poodles. Why 4? Well, we started with the one. Now, I NEVER thought I'd w... Read more
Taking Care of Business
I hate...no, ABHOR...paperwork.
Social Security was first. To change my name, I have to present the ORIGINAL (not copy) marriage license. I COULD do it by mail, but for some reason I did not want to risk sending this umpty-page document with ... Read more
Trying to Eat Better
It's hard when DD is chief cook, and I feel obliged to eat the leftovers that the kids don't eat, because I hate food going to waste.
Since I got paid Friday, yesterday I bought some organic spinach/spring greens, some extra sharp chedda... Read more
