  1. Good morning, everyone.

    I met my husband at college. We were standing in a line to register for a history class, and he was introduced to me by a guy I car-pooled with and had dated a couple of times. We were subsequently in that class together.

    He asked me for a date, and I was so surprised that I said yes and later regretted that. Nevertheless, I kept my word, and we went out and then kept dating. I did tell him once I thought we should break up. However, again, we had one date that I had agreed to. I told him I would still go with him. I actually prayed that if we were meant to be together, it would be clear to me. After going on what was supposed to be the last date, I never looked back, believing we were meant to be together. We began dating in September; got engaged the end of December and got married in the spring when he graduated from college. We were so different and yet…

  2. And God knows what he is doing and the plans He has for us.

    As a young believer, I got “saved” multiple times until He prompted me to ask Him for faith. I did and He has supplied.

    Later, foolishly (?), I asked for patience and He gave me fifteen children. He supplies abundantly.

  3. I suspect after my most recent grumbling (4 minutes ago), my husband wants a husband version of that shirt.

    Of course, as soon as I waited long enough for the computer to go to Mesopotamia circa 689BC and back to load my email, I opened immediately to Streams in the Desert’s first lines: “Fret not.”

    I hate it when that happens.

    Except, I don’t.

  4. I met Cheryl at a wedding.

    I was there alone, and in the wedding party. She came with a friend that she was dating at the time.

    He ignored her to drink and talk racing with the guys. I did not. 🙂 We even danced. 🙂

    Long story short I tracked her down a week or so later, easily done because she’d told me who her landlord was. This was before cell phones. I called them, they got her to the phone, she mentioned they were no longer dating. We met for coffee at Key City Diner and the rest is history. 🙂

    That was like 25 years ago, and I’ve enjoyed it, even the bad stuff, because she has always been there by my side. 🙂

  6. Good day after Valentine’s Day to you all. We arrived home around midnight last night with Pip so I have been out of action around here. She is adorable and so sweet…but it is like having a newborn (no sleep for parents) and a toddler (into everything) and a beaver (chews everything!) I had forgotten how much work puppies are! Rude awakening for certain but she traveled so well on the way home. She is napping right now 😊

  7. I’m catching up on making doctor appointments, mostly just more referrals from the GP. I’m going in for my mammogram on Monday & have an eye appointment that afternoon, so I’ll just take the day off. Another appt set for late March; only thing I’ve held off on is the new round of PT, mainly because that’s so complicated with my work schedule. I can see why people finally just give up and quit work.

    It’s been 2 years since I had a mammogram.

    I feel better about getting those appointments inked, I’ve had the referrals since December.

    Also looking at taking some time off in March & April, I didn’t take any of my usual vacation weeks off during the fall/holiday seasons so I have hit my ceiling of time I can carry before I’ll quit accruing any more (and I don’t want that to happen).

    It’s chilly and windy here today, 60 degrees right now so that’s quite a drop from our mid-80s on Super Bowl Sunday.

    My stapler is jammed, I can usually clear out those misfired staples that wind up all bent and twisted, but having problems this time, will have to keep working at it.

  8. I will be leaving for Orlando on Thursdays and won’t be back until Tuesday. I may not be able to check the blog but will be able to keep up with email. Several of you know how to text or call me.

  9. Ah, the end of recess bell just rang and it is quiet in here. In the past it has been that when it is raining hard, I let the other classes come to kinder over lunch recess. But lately I have been too tired.

    Today, I finished my lunch and could see the stairs to my classroom from where I was in the staff lunchroom. So I came back and let them in. Wendy was in here, but she didn’t want them in and she never got up. Close to 50 of them came in. I told one boy to make a quiet choice. Then kept walking around, settling them down. It was only for the last 15 minutes, but they were grateful and they cleaned up.
