Wednesday~

Well it is finally here. The last day of the 2016-2017 school year. I am thrilled. Now I just have to get through the next eight hours. I am sure it will be fine. I envy teachers and their helpers who have the entire summer off. Damn why did I say I would come back?…

Day one of two~

Today is day one of the last two days before school is out. It really can’t get here soon enough. But we are moving to a new school so there is a huge amount of packing that needs done and things needing cleaned to be ready for the move. The moving days are June 5th and…

Family Time~

We had our three kids over with their families today. It was a good time. Paula wasn’t able to make it which is sad but it still was enjoyable with the others. Emily’s husband Adam sliced open his finger this morning at work and had to go to the emergency room to get five stitches…

72 degrees but the sun is warm~

It is a beautiful day in Iowa today. But that sun is damn hot. I sat out for a bit and it felt like I was burning. Love this cool weather though with the sun shining and not a cloud in the sky. Literally beautiful. It’s not the ocean but it is nice. 🙂  

Time~

Time is fleeting. This day has flown by. Luckily I have two more before I have to go back to work, but I can’t understand how fast this day has gone. I haven’t watched TV, I haven’t cemented myself into a good book, and I haven’t been on the computer so how has this day…

Woes~

My two younger sisters are going through a lot of stressful stuff lately. Both are besides themselves with worry about this or that. I wish I could make it easier for both of them. My life is almost stress free and I wonder why I am so lucky when they struggle so much? I am…

Dogs~

About a month ago my son had to put his pug down. Milo is pictured above. He was full of cancer. Well now his basset hound, pictured in the first photo is full of cancer too and he told me last night he will have to put him down in the next week or so….

Packing up~

Well here we are on our Thursday. The last Thursday of the 2016-2017 school year. I have been packing away stuff for safe keeping. I will take most of it home with me but some I will take to the Roosevelt to use there as I clean. I honestly can’t wait to get started there….

A Disgusting Human Being~

I often refer to my night custodian as a piece of shit. Because he is the laziest grossest person around. He does barely does his job and never anything more. For instance, we get science kits four times a year and a lot of them have to go to third floor. If I tell him…

Memory Loss~

I had the weirdest dream last night. I dreamt I was losing my memory. That I didn’t know who I was or who my family was or where I was. It was a weird dream. And I woke up thinking “Is this supposed to mean something?” I was the age that I am now 56,…
