Training for the breast cancer marathon in Jacksonville Florida! I'm up to 6 miles, but struggling to keep at that mileage. Knitting a skirt with ruffles; it's going to be a beautiful piece of work.
Ralph is still in Iraq, Bryanna is married, Andee is a Vet Tech.
I'm now a HRD Coordinator...a small promotion, but it's nice.

I love Knitting...not good at it. Doesn't come naturally.
Finished my baby blanket for my new grandchild.
Ran a few miles the other day, but it's raining today. Glad it's spring break. I need a break from lesson planning. Graduation is May 14th. I have a lot of graduates this year...I so love my job. I get down about it now and then, but I got cards from my class. Each student present their card one by one to me yesterday. How many teachers get to exerience that? My online students came in to test..a lot of happy people. That made me feel good, but it was their hard work, not mine. I just supply the shot in the arm..the do the work. I wouldn't trade teaching adults for the world.
I am the lucky one.
Today is a good day.

my grandbaby...and my my children

I miss my mom. I want to go on vacation the last week of March. I haven't ran in awhile and gaind half of my weight back. It's all of my fault. I need to do somethign about it, instead of complaining about it. I'm still knitting; I'm knitting a baby blanket for my daughter.
Ralph is in Kuwait..then off to Iraq this week.
Ralph lost his stepfather..he didn't like me much. I'm a strong personality, so it's difficult for people to like me. I understand that. I didn't go to his funeral..I truly debated about that. BUT, I thought, instead of making people uncomfortable, I would stay back. I will send a sympathy card though. Ralph loved that man..I struggled with his ideologies and he surely didn't like mine.
Really worked hard this past week...too many students, and too little of time. I've had a part time postition posted for a long time and no one is interested. Not's a lot of work, and people who know this line of work, know it.
I'm tired, miss my husband, tired of having everything on my shoulders, work, home, children, etc...I guess I should stop complaining..others have it tougher. I know that, but here, I can write about it. Too many people want/need me to be strong, here I can post my thoughts and ideas without anyone knowing me.
I need to get back to running...I miss it sooo much. How do I fit it back into my schedule?
