Day 152: Feeling Gratitude
Wednesday, November 23, 2011      4 comments

This Thanksgiving promises to be a hard one, as it is the first Thanksgiving without my mom. I am working my way through what feels like a fresh tidal wave of grief. While holidays are so hard for those of us who mourn, I still think it's imp... Read more
Day 150: Low Key Weekend
Monday, November 21, 2011      6 comments

I haven't blogged in a few days again, so this blog is bound to be another hodge podge of random ramblings. I had a very low key weekend. Seeing as how I was still not completely 100% after my tonsillectomy, I decided to just kind of lay l... Read more
Day 146: An Unexpected Quiet Evening by Myself
Thursday, November 17, 2011      4 comments

I'm sitting home alone tonight. My husband called from work and said he and his brother (who works at the same place--they car pool) wanted to drive an hour to a nearby city and do some shopping. Did I want to go along? No, thank you. I was ... Read more

Wow, I had no intention of letting it go a whole week before I updated this thing! Sheesh! Anyway, the past week has been spent continuing to make baby steps toward feeling healthy and "normal" again following my tonsillectomy on Nov. 3. ... Read more
Day 138: Yep, You Guessed It, Still Recuperating
Wednesday, November 09, 2011      6 comments

I honestly don't have much new to report. About the only thing to report has to do with my pain meds. If you recall, I was a little concerned about the pain meds running out. I expressed that concern with my doctor, via email, and was advised... Read more
Day 135: Still Recuperating...Not Much Change
Sunday, November 06, 2011      6 comments

Today was another fairly low-key day. Two of my brothers came over to visit for a little while this afternoon. I didn't do much talking, of course. We watched some movies, and they mainly talked to each other or my husband, but it was still ni... Read more
Day 134: Just a Little Update
Saturday, November 05, 2011      7 comments

I figured I'd give a little update regarding how I'm doing. So far, so good. As I mentioned before, I started venturing into the world of warm food a bit yesterday. I had Cream of Wheat, as well as mashed potatoes. I attempted macaroni... Read more

This blog entry is for Thursday, Nov. 3: I'm still alive! I made it! (Okay, a tad melodramatic.) I thought I'd talk about how my my surgery went. Forgive me if this gets a bit long, but this is exciting stuff for me, having never ha... Read more
Day 131: Tomorrow is The Day!
Wednesday, November 02, 2011      5 comments

Not much to report from today...just worked, worked desperately to get my grades done (didn't quite make it, but I'm close), and got all my sub plans done, all the handouts copied and set out nicely for the sub, etc. No high quiz bowl match ton... Read more
Day 130: Carbon Copy of Yesterday (Kinda)
Tuesday, November 01, 2011      6 comments

Today was almost a carbon copy of yesterday in some ways. I worked away, trying to make sure to get caught up on my grading so that I'll have everything done before I have my surgery and have to be gone for over a week. The quarter really ends... Read more
Day 129: State Testing, Grades, and Quiz Bowl
Monday, October 31, 2011      2 comments

Today was not a very exciting day. We started state testing for 10th graders. They'll be testing every day this week in English class. Then they have like two more weeks of testing for math, social studies, and science. Other than th... Read more
Day 128: Busy Week Coming Up
Sunday, October 30, 2011      5 comments

Well, my Halloween party last night was a lot of fun. It ended up being a pretty small gathering, but that was conducive to conversation and made it feel like a very relaxed atmosphere. I ended up staying overnight, just to be on the safe side... Read more
Day 126: Bad News Last Night But A Peaceful Day Off
Friday, October 28, 2011      9 comments

I found out last night that one of my brothers, whom I refer to as B1 in previous blogs, is in jail again. It's extremely complicated, and basically there are decades of issues that "color" my emotions related to the situation. The dominant em... Read more

Thursday, October 27, 2011      6 comments

Woah! How did that happen? I haven't blogged in almost a whole week!? What?! Really?! [Seriously, could I possibly use any more interrobangs? (or at least as close as I can get to one) Bet you don't know what those are, do you? Go ahead. ... Read more
Day 119: Victory!
Friday, October 21, 2011      7 comments

I honestly could not believe my eyes when I stepped on the scale this morning. I could not believe that even after my couple weeks of not tracking, not weighing and measuring, etc., that I am down enough to finally be able to say I've officiall... Read more
