Up Late Again

Sunday, May 03, 2015      4 comments

I dozed off earlier this evening and awakened at 11:49 P.M. Yes, I am still awake at 1:15 A.M. This is madness. I will grab the Agatha Christie mystery I've been trying to read and suspend electronic interaction with SparkPeople and Facebook so... Read more

Staying Put?

Thursday, April 30, 2015      1 comments

Although I put in a request for a transfer nearly two months ago, nothing has happened, so I feel that I am to be at my current campus unless the LORD intervenes in a mighty way and clears the path for me. I will accept my place and bloom where ... Read more

I put in my request for a transfer to another campus and received my principal's blessing. I am relieved. I am fully aware that no one is irreplaceable. I am simply ready for another challenge at this point in my life.... Read more

And Now for Something New?

Sunday, March 01, 2015      2 comments

I will be informing my principal of my intent to request a transfer from middle school to high school level. I didn't meet the deadline last year, so I wasn't interviewed by any prospective employers, but I will be "Jilly-on-the-spot" this time.... Read more

Foiled Again?

Wednesday, February 25, 2015      2 comments

We had some ice/snow/sleet descend in our area and shut us down for two days this week. I couldn't go for my morning walk, so I did some strength training. I relished walking around my school today, but it wasn't the same as my morning powerwal... Read more

Happy Birthday, Son!

Tuesday, February 24, 2015      1 comments

Seventeen years ago, I became a Mama to Trey. The time has flown by, and he is so grown up in so many ways yet still a kid in others. He still loves watching Looney Tunes cartoons, being covered with warm blankets, and playing video games. He's ... Read more

No School Today

Monday, February 23, 2015      1 comments

We received the call last night that there wouldn't be school today. I am listening to the sleet pelting down on my office window, and I am glad I am not driving to school in this stuff. Yuck! I don't mind snow, but icy roads don't interest me.... Read more

I talked to my assistant principal who had spoken to the student who took the other student's workbook. I have to just leave it be for now because other things have been happening with the student whose workbook was missing. I will let the slee... Read more

I Just Don't Comprehend. . .

Wednesday, February 04, 2015      3 comments

I reported an incident to my assistant principal. I didn't see any results, but she may have had more pressing issues to investigate. I found Student A's workbook (a required resource!) in Student B's locker. To my knowledge, no disciplinary ac... Read more

Last Friday of January!

Friday, January 30, 2015      2 comments

It is the last Friday of January, so that means I won't see my students until next month. (rimshot) They usually laugh when I say that to them, but it's all good. I'll be going through their discussion questions after they finish their vocabula... Read more

Good Weekend So Far

Sunday, January 11, 2015      0 comments

I made it to the grocery store and washed some of the laundry yesterday before my son and I went to my parents' house for a visit. We watched the playoff games for the NFL and were disappointed about the Panthers' loss in Seattle. My son is a ... Read more

It's the first Wednesday of the year, and I feel a bit harassed trying to get my work put together for a substitute to come in and work with my kiddoes. LORD, please give me the energy I need today to be ready for Friday. Help me get my paperw... Read more

A Little Accomplishment

Saturday, January 03, 2015      2 comments

I completed strength training several days this week, and I am pleased with myself. I've also eaten some type of produce most days this week and logged in some good sleep time with most days getting at least six hours of sleep. I will do everyt... Read more

First Friday of the Year

Friday, January 02, 2015      1 comments

I walked 2.06 miles in 33:47 and feel great. I think I need new running shoes to support my feet and legs. This time at home has been restorative for sleeping purposes. My Christmas decorations are still up and will remain until at least Januar... Read more

Au Revoir 2014

Wednesday, December 31, 2014      3 comments

It is super early on New Year's Eve, and I am still not in bed. I guess all of the napping has caught up with me. I'm also excited because my son and I will visit one of my high school/college friends tomorrow at her home for lunch. She has ho... Read more
