"Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome."

Booker T. Washington


That's what SP is all about....overcoming obstacles.....and they do such a fine job!!! Thanks SP for all you've done for us!!!! We LOVE SP!!!!!!!


The driver's meeting this morning was very long. We sat there for 3 hrs. 15 min. Haven't done that much sitting since I don't know when. Was really glad to get up when it was over. The speakers delivered grim news of changes within the corporation for this new school year. More surveillance, not only for students but for us too. There was much more unsettling information but I'll just deal with it and will try to let it roll off. After the meeting most of us went over for the pitch-in lunch that doubled as a send off for our Transportation Director who quit his post in favor of a new job as Director of the County Hwy. Dept. The changes within the school corporation were so sweeping that he essentially bailed out - wanted no part of it. There was a lot of food there, none of it healthy, which was no surprise. Everyone ate, several people asked why I wasn't eating or if I was still 'watching it' since my weight loss. They had lots of sweets there too and of course a big 'going away' sheet cake for our boss. I didn't eat a thing and was very glad of it. Actually, it made me reflect back upon those days when I would've been filling my plate, eating with everyone else. Today, none of it was the least bit tempting. Made me realize how far I've come to have no little voice telling me 'just a bite or two wouldn't hurt anything'. The little voice only said 'Whew! How can they eat that??'

Got in the cardio after I got home and finished up the laundry. The weather was good too.

    Good job surviving the lunch and hopefully the changes won't be as fearsome as they seem right now. Hopefully!

    Our teachers lay out a spread that could feed an army, and a regular basis. The one saving grace is that we have a few people who are diabetic, so there are always some healthier dishes to choose from. I am in denial about how close the start of the new school year is. I'm just not ready to face it yet.
