You know I have been thinking and thinking about being in the education field and budget cuts for the past few years, and I find it hard to believe your last sentence, and I quote: It's a tough job, I swear it is." I don't know about anyone else, but I have been to New Orleans and I just don't see the "tough" part. I guess I got out of teaching too soon, Coach, LOL!!! Seriously, Coach, take care and try to have at least a little fun.

It's a tough job, I swear it is.

My birthday was two days ago.
I had a wonderful birthday...I got a diary, a green shirt, a book about Mao, a book about the Roman army, a towel, a lucky charm, 2 pairs of pjamas, a lined paper book to write in, £30, £40 in I-tunes vouchers, and a new computer keyboard.

I start Zometa in October. The side effects sound like what I went through when I had to take Neulasta after each chemo treatment. I don't think it is going to be fun at all.
Okay, who is ready for a field trip to see my oncologist? Any takers? I will share nicely, LOL!!!
We are going out to dinner tonight. I just didn't want leftovers (even though I love mac and cheese) and I don't really feel like cooking.
I will try to get back online when we get back. TTYL
Hope all goes well with yoiur appontment. tell sure is a long list of side effects with this new treatment. i take it ,it is needed !..
I .ii come with you no problem ~}
ahaope your enjoyed your mean and eat it all ~}

We went to Wal-Mart to "walk it off" and bought some rocky road ice cream for dessert--like we needed it, LOL! Time for jammies and TV and ice cream. TTYT
Sounds really lovely. and for $3.39 and of course you needed dessert lol

It was a long fun day at Six Flags, spent half the day in the water park, and the other half in the regular park. I went on the new Bonzai Pipelines in the water park, all I can say is AWESOME! Here is a description of them:
Are you ready to freefall through a 257-foot enclosed water slide and splash into six inches of water? Six Flags New England and Hurricane Harbor are pleased to announce the all-new, first of its kind in the world Bonzai Pipelines, a 75-foot tall waterslide complex featuring not one, not two, but six outrageously fast and intense drop hatch looping body slides.

After climbing to the top of the six-story tower set amid the water park’s incredible existing line-up of 27 slides, pools, and attractions, you will step inside one of the six state-of-the-art ‘DreanlineDrop’ launching capsules. As soon as the door closes shut, it’ll be three-two-one-DROP! And the adrenaline rush will quickly kick in as the floor suddenly drops out below you (and five others simultaneously), sending everyone freefalling, body surfing at 40 miles per hour as super powerful G-forces glue your bodies to the walls of slide through 257-feet of mind-blowing twists and turns — including a tight 360 degree loop! — first in clear tubing then in pitch darkness for an added rush of adrenaline, before finally shooting everyone out splashing into a mere 6 inches of water in the runout. Best of all, all six body slides each have their own unique path of twists and turns resulting in six different heart-pounding freefall experiences to keep you screaming all summer long!
I was swearing through the ride but wow it was amazing, I can't wait to do it again.
Needless to say I am tired today after being in the sun, and humidity all day. Late shift tomorrow, so I will be able to sleep in a little.

As they wood say over here rather you than me go on that ride. never never. but glad you enjoyed it.

wow, 6:15 am and already 23c (73f) with humidity feels like 31c (87f) Imagine when the rain stops , which it is supposed to do in about an hour and the sun comes out!
I am truly thankful for air conditioning.

I can tell the days are getting longer, had to turn on a light this morning!

sounds like an amazingly wonderful day!
As for that slide, for me, no way! I shudder going down the smaller ones, there is no way I would go on one that sounds like Carl designed it !
You are very brave
