Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. As August draws to a close, share what's been your favorite weekend of the entire summer?

Would have to be June 20-22.  Hub and I celebrated our 33rd Wedding Anniversary on the 20th, and we took a mini-get-a-way!  Our love still grows everyday for each other.

2. Labor Day is marked in the US of A on Monday, September 1st.  What paying job have you held that you've loved the most? Liked the least?

I love teaching, and I love seeing the progress the kids make even if they do not pass the rigorous state testing-progress is progress and one day of testing should not measure it.

Least favorite job, would be a summer job my father got me while in college.  It was a factory job, very hot, no breaks, and lifting sheet rock boards-but the pay was great.  Just because my daddy worked there, didn't mean I had any breaks-I was treated like everyone else.

3. Does the new school year start before or after Labor Day where you live? When do you think it should begin? There is much dis…

Weekend Rewind

First, I made it-for two days-(three -day week) of school without much of a problem.

Little man-aka-grandson spent the night with us on Monday.  He even came to Zumba class for the last half hour.  He had rode his bike to watch me Zumba-I must be pretty fascinating to watch-LOL! I woke him up early on Tuesday morning (I had to get to school) and I wanted him to be able to go to sleep easily since his first day of kindergarten was Wednesday.

Summer is coming to an end  :(

I had to return to school on Wednesday for teacher in-service and work days.  Tuesday evening I was asking hub where had summer gone?  The older I get, the faster time goes by. Maybe I just pay more attention to time now a days.  Remembering when

1. The best part of waking up is___________________________________.My first thought--"The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup."    Lately, I wake up all night, so the best part would be-thankful for another morning and I am still able to get out of bed.

2.  Given a choice, which animal interaction would you most like to experience (or for those non-adventurers...which would you dislike the least?)Swim with the dolphins at one of several locations in the Florida Keys, a lion encounter ten minutes from Victoria Falls (Africa), or a day at a remote base camp high in the Big Sur wilderness via the Ventana Wildlife Society helping track California condors?

The one I would dislike the least (non adventurer) would be a lion encounter from Victoria Falls.

3. What is something you fear about 'old age'? What is something you look forward to?
Fear-not being able to see all the accomplishments of my daughters. On the other hand, looking  forward to seeing all of daugh…

How about a couple of weekend rewinds.....

Last weekend hub and I traveled to Myrtle Beach for a pharmacy trade show.  Plan was to leave shortly after 11 on Friday and that way we could arrive and enjoy some beach time before attending the trade show on Saturday.  My thinking was this-I would make an appearance at the trade show (you know what I mean by appearance) on Saturday and then head to the beach while hub was at the trade show.  We were able to leave town shortly after 11 on a rainy Frida
