Hey ya'll! WHAT a day....WHAT A DAY! Insanity! ....followed by a faculty meeting! Dear GAWWWWD how can it only be Tuesday? Came home to the oldest ds crying over any and everything .....from his birth defect to his sick hamster.....oh my! THAT was enjoyable... I think I've got him settled for now! Cooked my favorite tilapia recipie! Gotta love a WW recipe that the children BEGGGG me to make! However, my head is throbbing from all the drama as I was preparing dinner!

Gin, I've carried around a card for you for the last 2 days.....what kind of friend am I??? Will get it into the mail EVENTUALLY! I'm so lame! Did you get my email? I THINK I sent you one...but alas, I KNOW that I've typed at least 2 other messages to you and can't seem to get it to you! Duhh! So... anyway... I know that you will be welcome support for your friend who has just lost her husband! It will mean so much to her...and you know that your late friend would love you even more for supporting his widow! Hang in there..... (((more hugs)))

Pam... I was sooooo disappointed that you were NOT currently sitting at your computer last night! I will dig around to find a photo of THAT outfit....but I'm afraid that it just won't be the same unless I can find a video....the tassles just won't fly around the way they should! My family LOVES the raspberry lemon ade Crystal Light! If you haven't tried it...do! So how is your ds? Feeling better? Hope so! HOW can you stand to be SOOOOO close to a wonderful trip??? I'd be so darn excited I could hardly stand it! Your itenerary sounds simply DELIGHTFUL! Altho.... I have to admit that going ANYWHERE other than the usual...school, walmart, WW.... sounds rather EXOTIC at this point of the year!

I am down 36 pounds.... that is a 1 pound loss for the week. I'm trying to be GOOD this week! The stress is KILLLLLLLLLING me! ...and when there is stress....I crave THE FRIDGE! Actually sugar, starch and horrid carbs! I didn't get fat eating green beans! I'm trying to remember..... "If food isn't the problem...then food isn't the solution!" Sighhh!

Gonna run...... I think I may take a shower and see if I can get rid of this headache.... at least in the shower, the boys won't be following me around pecking at me! All I have to do these days to get a moment alone is GET NEKKKID! They scatter like crazy! Yahooo!

Ya'll take care,
..........thanks for being here!

Robyn- hope that headache goes bye-bye. Oh, I hear ya with the stress monster and eating. I have been into way too much junk recently. Think its gonna show up at my WI on Thursday. (going then to combine errands). Congrats on making the halfway point at WW!!!!!!!! (just noticed that!) How awesome! Gosh you are doing great! Hugs to you and Ds. Don't ya hate it when your kids hurt? I hope everyones mood improves. What is with the tilapia recipe? Ds and Dd love tilapia (I make a blackened tilapia, very spicy but good). And no you are not at all a rotten friend. I love you to pieces and you are wonderful. Even thinking of sending a card is fine......(my WW buddies who attend meetings with me did nothing.. how's that for friends?)
But seriously, I am not bugged by either- life is so busy for all of us!!!

Gotta go watch the olympics with my sickie. I did get 3.5 miles in today...... and if I attack the diet jello in my fridge and nothing else, then today will be a good one.
Nite!

Evening All,
I am back for awhile. Sorry to be missing in action again. But you all know that it is that time of year for me being one of the resident special education teachers. Until April 7th when I have my annual reviews for IEP'S I am going to be a busy lady. Got over my strep throat. Boy does that knock a person for a loop. Then last week, I worked two nights with extra hours at school for an afterschool fieldtrip and parent teacher confernences. Had the stepkids this past weekend. On top of all this have had my van at the repair shop three times in the last two weeks. I think it back to running properly now. I hope. So I have been busy and stressing out a little bit. Good news is that the 2 1/2 pounds I gained last week from being sick and having the TOM at the same time the week before, I took off 2 1/4 pounds tonight at TOPS. So I am happy with myself. Nuff about me.
Ginny, I am so sorry about your FIL passing. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers. Hope all is going well for you right now. How is your MIL? Glad you were able to get in some walking time today.
Robyn, congrats on being down 36 pounds! Way to go, Robyn!! You are doing a great job. Did you reward your self for this mini accomplishment? Hope your headache went away and you were able to find some quiet time for yourself. Hope your ds is feeling better tonight.
Pam, you must getting excited about your trip. I hope you have a wonderful time on your trip. Think on the positive side if you are getting sick, atleast it is not happening when you go on your cruise.
Hi to everyone else. I will try to make it back here tomorrow. Tomorrow is the first day back for this week. We had inservices all day long today. I had to attend two inservices that did not pertain to me and I was bored out of my gord. I could kick myself for not taking my schoolwork to work while I sat through those meetings.
Have a great evening.
Take care,
Kerry

Hi, all.
I feel really out of the loop, since I haven't been here in more than a week.

Ginny: I'm sorry to hear about all your funerals. Thoughts are with you and your family.

Things are crazy here: I'm playing mechanics games, too... plus my father is playing his same old "hospital" game... again.

Hey! Happy Hump day!
Thought I'd drop in and drop a quick note. NOt much happening today. Just went to the tanning bed. I have been going after school and then picking up my son. I pay for it and never use it. Well, he has like a stop watch on me now. Why are you so late. I picked him up fourteen minutes later than I usually do..Dang. The grief....
I have decided I am truly a freak of nature.........With a little help from A BOX OF girl scout cookies....I have managed to break through my plateau and am down to 163.5 as of this am.....What is up with that? The only thing I can think of, is that I have been drinking tons and tons of water. SInce my son can't have carbonated drinks, I have been buying water. SO, I am drinking it, so he will drink it. If that makes sense.

Robyn: Still waiting for that pic..... Darn my bad luck.....I AM SO TERRIBLY EXCITED. It's all I can think about.....Four more days of work...Sounds like you and I are in the same circles, school, Walmart. Oh, how I love Walmart. Not.......Congrats on being down thirty six pounds. I have thirteen more to go til I reach my goal......Ok, well I really want to be at around 145....So, we'll see. It figures, I would start losing just in time to go to eat fest 2006. Oh well.....Sorry about the headache. I understand about kids scattering. My boys will hang outside the bathroom door saying Mom, mom, mom, and finally i yell WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT?
Then, they say nevermind....Btw: listened to the spinal tap song. Lyrics are lovely! GOnna try and send you the Adam Sandler song.....Haven't figured out how to attach it to email.

Ginny: Who is sick? You are a walking machine. Do you know I have not watched any of the olympics this year? How sad is that?

Kerry: Welcome back. I know all about busy. I have had three peer evaluations to do, a mentor log, catalog my math manipulatives, count text books, progress reports, and what else is that I do????OH yeah, teach....All this week. I have my last peer evaluation to do tomorrow. THen, just have to write them all up and submit....Fun, fun fun.

Mouse: Sorry about all your mechanical problems. What's wrong with your dad? Hope he is well soon.

Just think, Summer is at Disneyworld this week!

See ya later....

Pam

Yo yo yo.........HAPPPY HAPPPPY gotta get thru Thursday to get to Friday!

Found a new quote.... kinda think that this sums up my "issues" with my weight loss lately! ....."Half this game is ninety percent mental."
--Philadelphia Phillies manager, Danny Ozark..... Who is Danny and does he realize how stupid he sounds?!

I will not be able to get personal as the 2princes are fighting...will try to check in later.......... if not jailed!

Hi!
Pam- how is Ds doing? (PM is fine there) No you are not a freak of nature, someone at a WW meeting was complaining of a plateau- long story short, Laura (my fearless and hysterical leader) told the member to add points and fat to her eating, and the plateau broke. Congrats on the loss and all the water drinking.....so good for you and Ds!

Mouse- sorry about the mechanic stuff.....been there done that. How is Df doing? I remember last year this happened, and I remember that you felt obligated to do more for him, but he is a rather difficult chap. Hope all goes well.....hope you do not stress out about it either.

Kerry- great to hear from you. Glad the weight came off....hey, that darned strep was good for something! You must have had a really bad case if it is still knocking you for a loop. Take your vitamins.....drink lots of water. Sounds as if you are one busy lady and don't need to get sick again.

Well, drove this am. Stayed home with Dd this afternoon, who has a bad cough (the end of the cold but the cough is really bad). She seems much better now. Unfortunately I had to watch my safety meeting video at home (missed the actual meeting because of FIL's funeral). Those things usually scare the crap out of me- make me want to burn my CDL and hand in my badge. This one was no different. We are test piloting installing GPS systems in our buses....ok there are some mechanical reasons for doing so (base can monitor or perform diagnostics on a broken down bus) but then they add all the stuff about hijacking a school bus....I needed this??? Well, it was fun to watch the thing at home, all 3 hours of it.

Been a good girl eating and got 3.something miles of walking in on the treadmill. Guess I'd better go. WI tomorrow, I expect I will be up- last week was awful.
Nite!

Hi, all.
I really like my graduate class: it is very interesting with lots of interesting people to talk to (when we have time!). Its a lot of reading, which is torture because the textbook is SOOOOO bad! I mean, it is really just awful. And the instructor likes to give us surprise pop-quizzes. The last set of chapters included advice on diet (the only proper diet is a vegetarian diet with organic foods!), advice on chewing, suggestions on appropriate entertainment (TV does not count, but playing board games with children does!), and several different routines for mediatation. I made it through, though, and managed to retain enough to get a 90% on the quiz this week. That's not bad since it was more than 150 pages of reading.
I'm worried about my car: the dealer hasn't called me to tell me its ready and that was supposed to happen Tuesday. I'll have to call.
I have a lovely parent IEP meeting today, and just in time for it, I've got the whatever-it-is that the kids have had. All my kids have been out in rotation in the last two weeks. I'm being paid back for bragging that I didn't get it!!! I also have a monster cold-sore on my lip. I went to get medicine for it, and I couldn't remember the name of it... but the pharmacist knew exactly what I wanted because it was so danged obvious.
Ginny: He says that they told him he had a "mini-stroke". I think that makes the 10th or 11th mini-stroke he has had in the last 10 years. So far, though, nobody has called me expecting me to care for him. That is an improvement. I just don't understand this, though: my grandmother had a shoulder and hip replacement done in Nov/Dec. She's fine, sometimes doesn't even use a cane!
Alright... I'm going to take my sick self to work. I'd reschedule the IEP meeting, but the parent picked today at 3:05... and its due downtown by tomorrow in order to make our deadline. :sigh: I also have after-school detention today (during the middle of the IEP), and the child has no regular ed teachers, and his mom has such a reputation that nobody wants to attend because its going to go after teacher's are allowed to leave for the day.

Hi Mouse-
Hugs to you...sorry that you got whatever everyone else has. Up here it seems to be a crummy cold, and the primary problem is the cough. Take care of yourself......drink lots of hot fluids (not sure what works well for you and no, coffee spiked with Baileys does NOT count! ) Hope that meeting goes well today, less than wonderful parent and all. Hear anything about your car? How is your Dad doing? (my theory on why GM is fine and DD is not is that men are such lousy patients) Take care you sound stressed.......

A successful am. Drove the kiddies in (I took yesterday pm off, Dd was coughing her brains out so I stayed home to be mommy......) and the assistant mgr who drove my pm yesterday said how good my kids were. Guess all those threats and beatings really worked!!!!!!!!!!! Naw, as much as I complain I love my bus kids, well, most of the time.

This am after my run I got my hair trimmed (first trimsince Sept), got to WW and flewl thru Walmart. Pfew! Lots accomplished for a short time. Down .8 at WW, no great shakes but considering I spent 2 weeks running like a nut(nursing home, hospital, funeral preparations and 2 funerals) I am thrilled.

Nuff of me......gotta go get ready to face the masses this afternoon.
See ya!

Hey ya'll! Don't mind my sneezing.... I'm only SLIGHTLY contagious, I'm sure! Dang germs, dang weather, dang sick kids, dang long and painful week! Sighhhhhhhhh! JUST in time for the weekend! ......OOHHHH, the beloved weekend! I can nearly TASTE it!

Sorry to hear about your stress, Mouse! You should do what my ds's case manager does regarding scheduling IEP meetings.... only SLIGHTLY illegal.... They refuse to see me at any time other than Tuesdays at noon. He says that THAT IS THE only time that they can meet with me. PERIOD. (THIS makes me insane...... especially since when I leave my classroom/school during the school day...MY student's IEP's aren't being followed! AND Since I have 7 students with IEP's, I'm at my school all hours of the day and night around parent's schedules!) THIS issue is my next war. The last one was with the OT who refused to meet with me ....EVER... She was having issues with many other parents; however, I did all that I needed to / talked to all of the POWER people....and well, NOW I'm not trying to get a conference with her.....They fired her! ....and so now he is getting NO OT! That wasn't my goal....but you can imagine how bad she must have been if they actually FIRED the woman! Anywhooo.... Hope your lip, car, and dad get better!

Gin, whooohooo! Any loss is a step in the correct direction! You did very well considering the stress and the emotions of your last two weeks! You did good today in your "spare" time! Hang in there!


Gonna go to bed early! I can hardly breathe! I guess that voodo doll DS's casemanager has of me is working! hehehehehe! Ya'll take care! Happy Friday!

Hey Robyn-
Don'd despair my dear..........the scale lies from time to time. Get it back next week! (and usually this means you are in for a big weight loss week this week!). Keep your chin up. How ya feeling?
Thanks for the card......I am so appreciative having your friendship- and you know I mean that!
Gotta go get dinner on and then do some shopping. Nite

Hello everyone!
Yes, it is 6:17 am SUnday morning. Why am I up? Well, the snore train is making it's way through my bedroom. Might be room for one more to go with me on the cruise. I may have to murder, maime a certain someone....
Gotta a busy busy day ahead of me....Started packing a little yesterday. Was going into the livingroom to write my sub plans for next week, but alas, there are two boys sprawled out on the couch. Ughh. Have to take the oldest grocery shopping today so he will have some food while we are gone. I have already told him that I am not buying food for his army of friends....So, atleast my grocery bill should be cheaper...Thinking of getting my hair cut. I don't know I am having such a great debate about it at this point. I want to get it all cut off....I know I will regret that...So....

Ginny: Sorry you guys have illness running around up there. I feel like I am losing my voice. Won't my kids at school love that tomorrow? How is dd?

Robyn: .2 pounds? You'll get rid of that when you pee.....Sorry you are sick. I have so far managed to stay well.. I thought I was getting a cold. But, I have managed to not be sick....Except for this voice thing. I am a little sniffy, but nothing major......

Mouse: Class...Bluck....Are you feeling better?

Gotta get going. Talk to you all later...

Pam
