On 16mm we have stuff from every decade from the 1920s to the 1980s, but heaviest on the 1930s and 1940s---lots of comedy, music, and mysteries, but also a little drama and Western. And a nice selection of Christmas movies!

I told her that I wanted to reward his improvement, and I think it might help him to continue improving, especially with the new teacher. I can hardly wait to see his face when it is announced. He will get to have lunch with the principal. Even though it will be a pizza lunch, he will still get to have Round Table pizza with us (the other students and me). I don't think he has ever won Student of the Month in all his four years at our school! The announcement will be made on Wednesday.

Awww....I bet it will make this little one's day !!

Thanks, Xmas! He has been doing a lot driving anyway, so it will be nice for him to have a permanent position now!

Thanks too for the kind words. I know what you mean, but I truly do miss you guys - you are like family!

I told her I wanted to introduce her to all the staff as a new teacher at Murdock. Even though she knows lots of them, I just want to make it official and to let her know that she is a "real" teacher with her own classroom and to remind the other teachers that she will not be able to sub for them any more!!! She laughed at that and is truly happy that I asked her to replace me and that the district approved.

That is so nice or you which doesn't surprise me !! You are TRULY a nice and good person xo

As always, I've been working overtime and my extra time, I've been spending time with my family. My husband got promoted at work to a driver, so he was working some extra days, so he can get on his new shift this week. He also had to work some overtime last week as well.

I miss being around here - I know I've been missing a lot of the action. Makes me sad - all the everyday stuff, plus all the extras...the get togethers, QVC, morning coffee, and so on. I miss checking in on everyone and your families, but know that someone will keep me updated if something goes wrong with one of you medically or spiritually.

Hope all is well with everyone! I will stop in tomorrow, as I won't have to be back to work tomorrow night until 11. God Bless and talk to you all soon. Keep smiling! Praying for you all and thinking about all of you!



It is so nice to see you ! Big congratulations to your husband !! xoxo
