Radom thoughts

Haven't posted in so long, probably don't have a reader left, but for those of you still checking in, thanks & hopefully I'll be a better blogger. It's just been a crazy start to the New Year. Our 'winter break' from school was too short. I stayed busy processing orders right up to the last minute then before I got turned around good it was time to go back to work. We just finished exams and will be starting a new semester soon. I have a fabulous girl from ASU, Courtney, that will be student teaching with me. Really looking forward to working with her.
Hubby wore up yesterday with fever, extreme headache and abdominal pain. Fortunately flu test was negative, some unknown viral infection. He's feeling better today, but still not himself. That two hour wait in the doctors office was a stellar 'people watching' opportunity. Here is some of what I saw that drives me nuts:
wearing pajamas in public
wearing shorts/flip flops when it's freezing cold outside
Mother/daughter each texting on their phone and for one solid hour didn't speak to each other
talking (loudly) on cell phones in the waiting room
Parent getting a snack out of vending machine and not sharing with child (why was there a vending machine full of junk food in the waiting room anyway?)
Parent of a 10-12 mth old baby feeding him 'lucky charms' and tea in a sippy cup
Teenagers putting her feet up in chair & parent that don't correct her bad manners
My Heavens! I probably sound like a prude to some people, but good manners and common sense sure seem to be in short order these days.


  1. I started my Student Teaching at AL Brown this past Monday. It was exams and make-ups, so I haven't done much at all. Tues and Wed are Work Days in Ktown. So, I FINALLY get to meet the students on Thursday. I'm supposed to know by Monday (25th) which class I'm taking over 1st! lol :) This is going to be FUN! :) I'm excited!

  2. I'm still here, glad you you're back.

  3. I agree with you on the manners. I feel like manners are a very important thing to teach your own chidren. Love & blessings from NC!

  4. Now you know what I have to deal with at work everyday! Can we say trailer park... The new stuff is really cute! Glad you and Daddy are feeling better, but I'll call you later in the week since ya'll are on my "check on my OLD people" list! haha! Love ya!
