  1. So I would complete one report card then wander around my classroom or play solitaire or have a snack and finally get back to work.

  2. Part of the problem was that my aide had not gotten things ready for me as I had asked on Friday. So I had to organize everything before i began. Not sure what she did with the four hours that she had for prep.

  3. I loaned her my camera so that she could take pictures of the two graduations for her children on Thursday. Well, she let another son use it whom I had specifically asked her not to let him use it. So that will be the last time that I loan my camera.

  4. Then the gal that does the orders came to school. There were so many incomplete orders that she wanted to keep them all. I prayed mightily because that did not seem right as folks had paid for their books. She spoke to the vice principal and told me later that they would send them out on Monday.

  5. So much packing to do. I am supposed to leave my small home here ready to rent out. I don’t think anyone will be in it, but I still need to put all of my things away.

  7. Oh, I had been checking in, but seemed to be the last to say anything. Then suddenly….
    Well, here we are. Getting ready for a flight back to the States and other such.
    We are enjoying getting to know baby Linda.

  8. Wow, Mumsee, that is a lot of new grandchildren in a short period of time. Glad that you are getting to play with Linda. Please pray that the 1 and 3 year old at home will warm up to me quickly. I sent them some cards, but we will see. Last Christmas the other grandma was there and they went somewhere with her so I didn’t see them much.

  9. packing, packing, packing. One of my students got his mom to invite me to dinner tonight and then they invited another family too. It was loud, but a good visit. And I learned about some of the stresses others are under.

  10. I went on a walk around the block today with my friend. The three mile block. I am tired. It had more hills than I ever noticed when I drove it. And I forgot to bring water.

  11. The two of us also went over to inspect my house and see the repairs they had done to the woodpecker damage. They did a good job, we were pleased to see.

  12. Then she walked me around and showed me what trees will be taken out later. It was very interesting. The property will look so much nicer. And she bought a hose for the renters to water a tree which I thought was dead.

  13. We could see some rosemary and juniper that needed trimming and a bush that needed taking out. I found one of the property corner stakes. Then she thought that we could ask her husband and grandson to do some work and I would pay. Now the final plan is for all of us to go over there to work tomorrow. I know it needs doing, but I have not done anything personally on my property for fifteen years. I have only paid others to work. So strange.

  14. oh, Lucy and Archie are fun to be with. They know who I am and we are playing games together. I have already mentioned taking them to Bible Study Fellowship. Pray that she agrees.

  15. I moved into the missions house today. They have made changes and done some updating. But it looks bleak. The floors are the vinyl that looks like wood, but it has a gray cast to it.
    And things have been moved around. It just doesn’t feel friendly. The pictures that were on the walls have all been removed and a few things I don’t like have been put it. Several of them look to be from PNG. To make me feel at home???? But I do not like them and have already taken one down. I take a picture first so I can put them back where they were.
    I finally remembered that I brought some things home and just got out a small quilted wall hanging to put up. That makes it better.

  16. It is time to begin the new year on here. I seem to be talking to myself.
    I took the sixth grade, 12 year old granddaughter out to lunch. I forgot how annoying that age can be. The lunch was wonderful. I took her somewhere I had been but she had not. Later we came to my house which I should have skipped. We even took a walk. She went a different way. When we got together again she kept asking again and again and again why I did not want to go her way. Mumsee I am feeling lots of sympathy for you.

  18. Hi Jo. I was wondering if this was gonna continue. It seemed to have been stopped. Maybe we will eventually make it to 10,000 comments after all.
