Thanks, Xmas Tidings. I knew in third grade EXACTLY what I wanted to be when I grew up. I never wavered from that dream.

All I can say is that you deserve a medal for doing what you have done all these years; God Bless You!

Good afternoon everyone! I am on lunch break right now. Oh and Happy Valentines Day too! It's mine and Brandi's 3rd year together but 1st year married. We have no specific plans for tonight. I am just cooking a pork roast with mashed potato's and rolls and corn on the cobb. Brandi is out of school today and tomorrow on "winter Break" I think she goes back on Monday but does not get the kids back until Tuesday. This semester is just going by so fast. Oh and the househunt last weekend was good but my goodness I was spoiled by the low cost of living and houses in the southeast!! we are looking to rent at first maybe signing a year lease or less. but it has to be 3 bedrooms and a house no apts! or condo!! I loved Utah though it is beautiful!Anyways I better get back to work! Have a great afternoon though and enjoy your valentines day...don't eat too much chocolate!

I have watched this video numerous times since he released this song last Valentines Day and learned the sign language from watching it. When we went to see Paul in November I was sitting there doing sign language and singing along with him. I didn't even realize I was doing that at first, I was just so into the song!!! They do show that video in the background when he was singing. I didn't know she signed "sweethearts"! I learned something new today!

Good afternoon, everyone, and happy Valentine's day! My husband works nights, so we had our Valentine's day excursion last Saturday. I hope everyone has a wonderful and romantic day!

Good morning, Christmas friends. It is a clear-sky, breezy beginning to Valentine's Day here in northern California. I went to the doctor yesterday, and she changed my meds because the pain was not becoming less. WOW! What a difference! I have one tablet that lasts for almost eight hours (really!!!) and then one other prescription I take for any break-through pain. (Well, it lasts actually closer to six and a half or seven hours, but who's counting?) I was amazed that I slept the WHOLE NIGHT, almost seven hours! I did have a lot of pain upon waking, but the meds quickly brought it under control! I feel so much more rested than I have in a long time!

After the doctor's visit, Hubby and I went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond. We bought the crockpot combination I mentioned last week. I cannot wait to try it.

Thanks for all the gracious comments on the newspaper article. I am getting ready to go to the school to take care of the student body account for my classroom and will see the kids' reactions to the headline for the article. I will let you know what the kids say. TTYL

I hear you on the cost of living, Dawg. When I worked as an escrow officer and then as a mortgage lender, I was amazed at the difference of the cost of homes on the East coast and West coast. I worked in Charlotte, and the cost of a new home, (brick, large square footage, totally "ritzy") was around $100,000 to $200,000. Out here in California, you could not have touched that for less than $500,000!!!
