Speaking of "returning" to school. I have decided to increase my teaching qualifications this winter. Yesterday, I registered for an Intermediate Math Additional Qualification. This will allow me to apply for jobs to teach Math to students in Grade 7-10. It should be fun! I'm really hoping that this helps me find a teaching job somewhere in the area... especially since I'd have three Intermediate (History, English and Math) and two Senior (History and English) as well as a Junior (Grades 4-6) qualification.

Hopefully this will result in at least receiving a callback from an application!

You would be a wonderful teacher....

I kept the first baby, but the triplets went to the pet shop for adoption. Dad used to enjoy holding a guinea pig on his lap (on a towel) and feeding it apple. When he was in the mood, he'd say, "Bring me a pig!" The 'pigs learned that apples came from the refrigerator, so whenever they heard the refrigerator door open and close, they'd start whistling because they thought a treat was coming.

Awwww....I bet they were cute !! xo

She keeps fighting and looking ahead.

Thanks to everyone for all your prayers. Have a blessed day everyone.

Bless your mom's heart....I am still praying for both of them xo

Xmas, good luck on your final interview! Go with your gut, and follow your heart , you'll make the right decision.

I kept a Christmas corner in my bedroom, where I left out my Mr. Christmas clock w/ the ballroom dancers, and my Mr. Christmas Grammophone. I decided they must stay out year round

Thinking of you all & sending hugs.
