Happiness is Here . . .

Halloween is almost upon us - again. The candy is bought with the thought that if we don't get a lot of kiddies, then we can eat the candy that is left over. Bought the kind we like. :)

Work has been overwhelming as usual. I'm still trying to catch up on checking over work done by the children, especially their homework. But grades are entered and report cards ready to go. I'm so happy about that accomplishment ~ always such a relief.

I looked at our school calendar and we only have about two weeks left after this one before we go on a mini-break. Boy! We definitely need it!!!! And now to get ready for the holidays and family. Our nephew called and asked if he could spend Christmas with us. He will definitely be a nice addition to our festivities.

I'm thinking ~ turkey for Thanksgiving, tamales for Christmas, and darn it! I will learn how to make "pozole" for New Year's! Happy, happy, Joy, joy!! :)

Raining . . .

It is raining right now and occasionally we are getting an "Emergency Alert System" flashing on the t.v.. It's a good night for cuddling on the couch and watching mindless t.v.

It's been a good couple of days, sad on one hand, but happy on another. My husband's uncle passed away last week and we buried him today. The services were nice and the rain held off until everything was done.

Family is so important and priceless. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful extended family. Love them all.

We'll be alright . . .

Today is Tuesday and time has brought more changes. We haven't stopped. Do we ever? Probably not.

We love each other ~ that hasn't changed and I think that is what is important at times like this ~ we have each other to fall back on.

Prayer... always.

Yay! It's the weekend ~~ I've been waiting for today!!! As usual it was a long week of continuous changes and tweaking of those changes. We got it!! We got it!!! (I say this sarcastically!) No, it's all good. I think it's all helping me become a better teacher. I just have to keep remembering what I've learned and not get nervous when the principal walks through. Ha!!

Have a good weekend everybody and have a drink on me :).

For My Sister...

Yesterday was my sister's birthday...
I thought about her a lot. I wanted to call her. I called my mom's phone and she must have left it in her room because the answering machine came on and I heard my sister's voice. I called it again. She would have been 58. I miss her so much.

These flowers are for you, Sister, for your birthday. I love you.
