I know what you mean by that silver lining! When Wayne was in the hospital with his heart problem I spent 3 nights with him there in a bed by his. We did make the best of it since he was still in good spirits and actually felt well, just heart fluttering (which was still a bit scary). We really had a nice time together, talking, laughing watching funny stuff on TV. We wondered if the nurses and doctors thought we were having a party in his room! We still talk about our time we spent there. Sure, I was worried sick about him and don't want to be back at the hospital but like you said, "it is what you make of it". I think the funniest part being in the hospital that we were watching a Bugs Bunny cartoon that we have seen over and over since we were kids and suddenly we were laughing so hard at it that we had tears streaming down our face. I don't think that particular cartoon was that funny in the past but it was hilarious that day. We still laugh thinking about that. Of course if he was there in critical condition, I think it would be a bit hard to stay upbeat but Wayne and I were taking walks through the hospital and his appetite was well so it went okay!

Take care of yourself! I am glad your wife is there to cheer you up!


I think it is terrific that you guys always are so positive !! Positivity seems to have eluded me .......

That is one of the things I love about our relationship, we can take a bad situation and make it better. I actually have fond memories about those days in the hospital, not that I want to go through that again of course. We can be silly together and have fun doing stuff most people find boring.


It is nice to have someone to be silly and be a kid with ! xo

Thank you, Jennifer. I think I can handle just about anything except the upchucking. Yuck! Sorry, guys. I wish we had snow, but then I would miss the last days with my students since Thursday is my last day. Is there a way you can get way ahead on your school work so you can have a relaxing weekend for Super Bowl? I sure hope so. If you need any help, just ask! I make every effort to stay ahead of the work. For example, even before Thanksgiving, I had lesson plans and most copies made to go through March 22. I did tell Tara, the one who will be taking over my class, that that would let her use the time from February 1 to March 22 just to ease into the classroom routine without having to worry about lesson plans or copying and to use that time to begin making her own plans and adjustments slowly as she sees fit. Then she can begin doing plans and copies for April and May. Normally there is not a lot to do for the first week of June anyway. I have even gathered and marked the packets and other materials that she will need to copy for reading for the rest of the year. I am lucky that she knows the third grade curriculum since she did a long term sub job for her SIL from October through part of January while her SIL was on pregancy leave.

I have been so busy lately that I haven't found the time to make a post. On Friday I was not able to go to class because we ended up with five or six inches of snow. My professor told me that it was fine that I didn't go, that the roads were very bad. I am not sure if I will make it to class tomorrow, either! We are supposed to get freezing rain, sleet, and ice overnight tonight. If the roads are bad in the morning I am not going to risk driving.

Today it is going to be a relatively low-key day relaxing at home. I am going to make something for dinner, but I am not sure what yet. It is cold out so I want to make something really good. I have a Penguins game to watch early this evening at 5 PM. I am hoping that they win. We started the season off strong with two wins, but we lost the past two games. We need to get on a winning streak!

I am all caught up on my work/homework, so I am off to relax for a little this morning! Have a Super Sunday, everyone! Hope you and your families are all doing well.

This looks like a fun gift. You were lucky, as I am sure you know, to have been at the theater with the organ.

When I lived in Maryland, the downtown movie house that was built in 1926, the Tivoli, had a working theater organ. They used to show a few silent films a year accompanied by the organ. I used to write the pieces that went in the newspaper telling about the films that would be shown. There was a special thrill in seeing a silent film with the organ in a theater where these films were shown for the first time.
