Oh Seawaters don't apologize! I know exactly what you mean...I hear most of the same thing every day. Some parents don't know how to be parents,don't want to be parents,or some spoil and entitle their kids so in other words they are spoiled little brats. I could not be a teacher so help me goodness I would loose my temper if a kid smarted off to me...In fact I don't even like to be around kids that don't even say Yes sir or no Sir and I think it's deplorable...anyhow all I want to say is I feel for you and all teachers out there trying to educate children in 2013 !! I could not do it!

In other news I did not sleep good but it's okay I got in some good reading!! I am about to cook a good breakfast of sausage and "grits" with butter and toast! Good morning everyone! have a great Sunday morning!

Good Morning, Folks.

Weekend, Part II has arrived.

And so has the daily count:
Days to the Season: 304
Days to Christmas Day: 346
Barely over half a week away now from our first Milestone, the 300-day Season marker.
Then, the first of our 200's numbers!
(Marking steady progress, Guys.)

A bit cooler yesterday than predicted but we are still improving.
Hope to get to those promised 70's readings today.
It is 56 degrees and foggy here right now.

Have a Super Sunday, Everyone!

My son in law is a Pats fan. My husband, Snow-in-Texas, and he have been bantering back and forth on their teams. Actually we all give each other a hard time. My son in law harasses me on being a Cowboys fan, harasses my husband on being Ravens fan and we both harass him on being Pats fan. We have a blast picking on each other!

Spent a good part of the day with my mom, went shopping, did some errands and had lunch together. Then me, LittleCS and a couple of friends went out to a luxury restaurant for a fine dinner (hot dogs at Costco) and went to watch "Parental Guidance"..a great movie, highly recommend it.

I have to drop my eldest off for work soon and stop at the drug store for some sore muscle rub in hopes that the pain in my arm will subside and I can sleep tonight.

Hope you all have a good sleep, talk to you in the morning!
Dinner at Costcos! Did they light candles and serve wine? =)
I hope you feel better soon!

I was just a tiny child and my teacher was suffering some misfortunes in her personal life which made her impatient. If you didn't know the answer to something she would yank you up by your arm very briskly and get pretty rough while she marched you up to stand in front of the class. Needless to say I was in tears many, many times. Thankfully I got through it and my next teacher was a very nice person, like you. It is because of people like YOU who really care about the kids that those same kids stand a chance in this world.
I was terrified of my first grade teacher too! She was downright mean! She never hurt me physically but I saw her with other children and it was scary! Never saw that with other teachers, thankfully!

Seawaters would be the teacher that I would want for my kids! =)

My son-in-law and daughter teach my grandchildren to say, "yes sir, yes ma'am", etc. I didn't realize how much it stood out until I took them trick-or-treating this past year. They would walk up to the porch with a bunch of other kids they didn't know and I stood back a little so I couldn't hear what was going on. By the time all the kids got their candy and walking off the porch the adults in the house would look at me and say, "Your children have very good manners"! Nothing was said about the other kids, just mine. (I am not saying that ALL kids have no manners, it was just in this situation). So I listened in on the next few houses and the adults in the house were asking my grandchildren, "Are you having fun tonight"? My grandchildren would reply, "Yes ma'am" and would say, "Thank you" after receiving their candy. I had heard people from at least 15 different houses, that night, that my grandchildren have good manners. I am not going to say my grandchildren are perfect little angels (they can get rowdy!) but I am thankful for their manners. They are very quick to say thank you for any little thing you do for them without having to be reminded to say so.
