Cookies were good and we also made my birthday cake with dark chocolate fudge frosting. Plus I made chickent noodle soup. Everything I like. Since I am now an offical "Old, old lady, I thought I'd make my favorites." LOL

Our student's first experience eating chicken noodle soup and home made cookies.

Our exchange student's family does not have an oven because they are very expensive in Korea. So today she will be baking for the first time. It's a big deal and she excited. We're baking chocolate cookies!!

Spent day two at the school, to have our exchange student's schedule changed! They had Ye-Seon in all 12th grade classes--she is only 15 years old and needs to be in all 10th grade class (age appropriate for her).

Yesterday the principal asked Ye-Seon what she wanted, she told him she only wanted 10th grade English instead of 12th grade. I had to go back and demand 10th grade classes. This young girl has no idea of what she wants, nor what our school system is like. In Korea everything is based on rote memorization--they do NOT think for themselves. Plus all males are in charge. Ye-Seon could not tell him what she wants. Fortunately, I can.

It is amazing to find out that she has no idea how to use the library, nor look things up. Also, she has not written a book report, nor anything about what she feels. Ye-Seon had no clue how to write a report or use footnotes. It is surprising to fin d this out. Plus, this is why I want her in the 10th grade---I want her to be exposed to thinking for herself and being able to better express herself as well as know herself as a person.

I am doing working on decluttering myself. I have the kitchen done for the most part. I just have a couple areas to go. Next up is the laundry area, it seems to be a catch all.

Thank you for the info. I went back to bed for a couple hours after most of it thinned out; still sleepy with a sore throat and a bit queasy, but I feel *much* better than I did earlier.

Hugs,

Valerie

So glad to have you post. I think about you often.

Here is some information about getting rid of mucus:

Foods that Relieve or Cause Throat Mucus

Unfortunately, some foods can cause throat mucus, and if you are already dealing with throat mucus, the last thing you want to do is add to the problem. Milk and milk products like yogurt, cottage cheese and butter, cause excess mucus in the throat. These items carry protein molecules called casein which increases secretions of mucus and is difficult to digest. Along with milk products, caffeine, sugar, salt, non- herbal teas, (especially black tea), all create excess mucus. Soy is one of the most mucus making plant foods there is. Those who give up meats and dairy and switch to soy products, have a greater risk of creating an unhealthy mucus build up in the body.

Although there are many foods and food groups that can cause mucus in the throat, there are also a multitude of foods that can help to relieve it. A spoonful of honey and ginger can help the body to get rid of excess mucus; this is a popular remedy for many sufferers. Spicy foods like cayenne pepper, wasabi, and chili peppers will all help the body release mucus build up in the nose and throat. It is important to make sure you are drinking an adequate intake of fluids a day to help mucus to pass through the throat. Water is the number one help for throat mucus; pair it with vitamins C, E and Zinc for a natural remedy for throat mucus!

Wow, not a fun year! I hope they are able to do your surgery soon (and that you feel better soon after that).

Glad that you are at peace w/ resigning. Will you be looking for another job or waiting to see how you feel after surgery?

Not much has been going on here. I've still been exercising with my Striiv. It has an occasional glitch, but I really do like my pedometer. I woke up this morning with either reflux caused from coughing because of phlegm overload or phlegm overload and coughing caused by reflux. Either way, I'm drinking some hot tea to try to clear it out; then, will probably try to get more sleep.

Hugs,

Valerie

On August 6th, I will find out when my surgery will be. I feel bad because I had a total hip replacement last September and hoped to have no surgery this year. WRONG. Now I have to get this rotator cup repaired. Shoulder surgery is very painful plus I cannot take pain pills-get sick from them. Since I had shoulder surgery before, I know exactly what I am in for. emoticon Not excited about it.

However, today I am happy that I resigned from my job at McDonald's. I will miss many of the employees, however, I have offered to remain in touch with them. Now it is up to them.

Would you please tell me what is going on with you? I honestly do care.
