Today has been the best day so far this week. Computers are behaving better, co-workers have left me in peace, students are behaving, and I got a good night's sleep. I still plan on an early bedtime tonight, to ensure tomorrow starts out on the right foot. <BR> <BR> I think I got honored today. A principal at the other building in our district contacted me and asked if I would be willing to pr...

The morning was great. <em>104</em> The afternoon, not so much. <em>198</em> Computer issues about drove me nuts. <em>225</em> I kept getting interrupted by co-workers wanting immediate help with a program they should have learned how to use in August instead of waiting until now. <em>234</em> But one of my co-workers wants to walk to Leslie Sansone dvd's in her room after school, <em>361</em> so I now have a walking buddy...at least part time. <e...

Just what on earth do they think school is for, besides free babysitting? <BR> <BR> I am so blessed that my son shares my love of books and good literature. We have so many great discussions about things we have read. Sad that others are missing out on such a wonderful way to connect to their kids, espec...

The over-protective side of me wants my son to quit sports. I hate seeing him get injured. There are a lot of other activities that he both enjoys and excels at. I wish he would just decide enough is enough, that the pain is not worth it, and change his pursuits. But I can't make his decisions for him, especially when my hubby is so sports oriented.

This is a story about a couple who had been happily married for years, the only friction in their marriage was the husband’s habit of farting loudly every morning when he awoke.

"Stuff" has been going wrong all day. It's the first day back to school after Christmas break. My computers have been acting up all day. Annoying.
