TGIF

Friday, January 11, 2013

You may think it's crazy for a retired person to look forward to the weekend, but I really do. I have my energy filled 6 year old grandson that stays with me while his parents work. He wants to be active all day and has outgrown naps. He is in AM kindergarten and that is when I get things done. So when he gets picked up after work on Friday, I am ready for the break. So TGIF! Wishing everyone a restful weekend.

    It sounds as if you have a real job, which is why you should be looking forward to the weekend.

Jumping on the January 1st bandwagon.

Monday, December 31, 2012

Many people just use January 1st to jump on the weight loss bandwagon. Guess what? There is plenty of room for everyone on Spark People. If you want to stick with your resolution to lose, this plan is full of losers (and I mean that in a good way). Come aboard, we would love to have you. Stick around, you'll be glad you did. Enjoy life, health and new friendships. I love all of my Spark friends, I love the program and you can't beat the price. Best wishes to all for a successful 2013. emoticon emoticon

What's different about this place?

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Something was very different when I woke up this morning. What could it be? The air felt fresher, inhale, exhale, yes something different this morning. I was able to jump out of bed quickly, what could it be? Christmas is still a week away. Why did my eyes twinkle? Why was my smile wider? Oh, what could be different? Did all my hard work pay off? Was I finally in "Onederland"? Was this place for real, or a childhood fantasy like the tooth fairy? No, I stepped on the scale, and what was waiting for me? 199. It was not a fantasy, it does exist, Onederland is real and I am now a resident. Yeah!

What are our kids learning in school these days.

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

This is a true conversation on our bus stop last Friday.

Fourth grade boy:
Did you know that the Titanic had a sister ship?

Third grade girl:
Yeah, it was called Santa something.

Me:
Santa Maria?

Third grade girl: yeah!

Me:
Sorry, that was one of Columbus' ships.

Another fourth grade girl:
She's right (referring to me), it's one of the ships he drove to Ohio.

How's that for a history lesson? Is that what our kids are getting from our public schools?

    Well, you do live in Columbus so maybe they are thinking that people must drive to Columbus. Yikes, though! By 4th grade they should know this. Didn't they just study Columbus Day?
