Happy 'Pines Day everyone! It's the midweek already. Time to celebrate.

Actually, it's past the midweek. Only two more work days remain between now and the long weekend! Then, it will be a few days of beautiful weather - according to the forecast - and delicious foods. I can't wait for the turkey and pumpkin pie. Thanksgiving dinner is a favourite, indeed.

Not a whole lot happening today. Work was OK. I'm starting to understand the new job more and more. I received an email yesterday stating that all I have to do is input my phone number into the system at the Upper Canada District School Board and I will be on my way to receiving calls for supply teaching! The only problem is that I may have to hold off on updating it for a couple weeks. I need to figure out how to patch things with my new job. It all happens at once. I am in a little bit of a pickle. I hope they'll understand and let me come in part-time or something. Also, I don't know how much supplying I will be doing, so it's all up in the air!

I'll see what I can do there.

Anyway, I need to figure out something for dinner. Have a great night, everyone! Nothing like a 'Pines Day to break up the work week before a long weekend!

good wednesday afternoon, my christmas friends!

Elizabeth lost several videos that she and some classmates had recorded for a school project. They had used her tablet to record the video, and on the last day of recording, the tab said it was low on memory. She thought she was deleting old photos, but apparently deleted her weeks worth of video, instead.

She was brokenhearted and crying, and I almost cried because she was crying...lol. they're scrambling, trying to put together something fast, but she's still feeling like she let her friends down. bless her heart.

oh well. now ain't always, I guess.

I hope y'all have a great day!

I'm now about to go to bed. I stayed up very late last night because I was working on 'PowerPoint' presentation for upcoming international evening and I wanted to finish the slides and hence I could hardly get up this morning. ^^ So no way I would stay up that late tonight again.

I hope everyone had a great day!
Best wishes!



Glad you had a good day!!! Good luck with the school work!!!

Aww, I'm sure she is worried about what her friends are thinking. I'm sure they all understand it was an honest mistake though!!


I bet they come up with something even better tonight!!!!

I feel bad for her, too! But it was an honest mistake, I'm sure her friends will understand 💗 Thoughts & prayers for Elizabeth, Brad.
