I get 50% off on a sub. I also have the whole weekend off!
Looking forward to it, having trouble with a lot of pain in my arms from repetitive moving and heavy lifting. My doctor says if it does not go away in a couple of weeks he wants to take me off work for awhile. After a very busy night my arm is so sore it even hurts to type. I am going to take something and see if I can get some sleep.

Good to hear all is well

As an update on Wish, He seems to be feeling good today and did yesterday too. I spoke with the vet about stopping the Benazepril and he told me some information about the drug I did not know. It is the drug that keeps Wish from having abnormal heart rhythms which could be deadly. For now, I am going to try just cutting the dose in half. I guess we will go from there.
mmmm your in a catch 22 but wood there not be another tab that might not have the same side effects cutting down to half did the vet recommend that?
some tabs with rise blood/kidney/liver levels

They follow this man around who transforms himself to becoming Santa. Others are interviewed as well and some history about Santa. I loved it! It's available on Netflix, if you have it. That is where I watched it.

Come and get it!

Breakfast is ready, and, in an exercise of my vast mayoral power, I've stopped traffic on the highway until Seawaters comes in for a landing. Soup's on, gang!

Third grade math curriculum has ALWAYS been addition and subtraction with carrying and borrowing (now called regrouping); multiplication facts; beginning multi-digit multiplication; beginning division; some geometry as in shape identification, perimeter and area; and beginning fractions. When I say ALWAYS, that means from my mom's time, to my time, to present time; so it's not like a big change in math curriculum happened at all. Plus, these are the things tested on the state test at third grade. We teachers did not determine the curriculum; the state did. Nor was this curriculum introduced this year! The principal wants us to spend our next collaboration day seeing what we could take out of the curriculum!!! Can you believe that? What in the world is hard about memorizing multiplication facts? Shall we not teach it and let the kids be unprepared for fourth grade? But maybe next year these same concerned parents will want the fourth grade teachers not tax the brains of the kids again! Of course, memorizing math facts does interfere with computer time, game-playing time, TV time, sports time, etc. Heaven forbid that we should require homework either. I just had to vent at such stupidity, especially on behalf of our principal. I am floored!!! I wonder what the principal and the parents will say when they get the results of the state test? Of course, it will still be the teacher's fault! Please, let me lower my standards so your kid will not have to work!!! Sorry for the rant.
I understand where you're coming from. We all had to memorize our multiplication tables early-on. And if you can't add & subtract by 3rd grade, you're in trouble.
