    On this special day, four years ago, I lost the love of my life, Roger. He was "my best guy," a loving father and grandfather, a loyal friend and an extraordinary teacher for over 30 years. His smile was endearing and his heart was "10 sizes too big!!! "

    So many of you were with me in body and spirit at that time. I kept a printed memory page of all the heartfelt messages you sent. Thank for for your sustaining friendships, which are still greatly appreciated.

    Hug those you love today, as all of us know how precious and fleeting life can be. This is the most difficult week of the year, as on the 13th we celebrated the first year without my mom, and now today, Roger. Caroline

    I'm trashed. Slept like garbage and they messed up my coffee this morning. Seriously? It's not rocket science!

    Thinking I'm leaving early.

    Hope everyone has a good day.

    Becky,
    Pack a hat, gloves, and scarf for safety sake!!! When Grams comes up from N. Ft. Myers, I always deck her out with a new set of the above.. .She just laughs....

    I did find an awesome new set of the above today... I think I'm going to run back out and get them this weekend..but I was on a mission today for needed supplies so I did not deviate from my list...

    Happy Birthday K~

    so today went to He** in a hand basket.......

    Eric home sick stomach ache (most of it is self made with the fighting over homework call in to teacher this pm)
    Levi off to school for me to get a call from the nurse. He and another collided in gym and he's bleeding from the top of his head. He made it through part of the day. I ran and got him at 11:30.

    did get to walmart cause he wanted to "coffee" mugs

    call into the spec ed head here we go again........ hopefully since I've never called her (her son is in Levi's class so I know her) with and issue it will kick start the issue.

    off to get a drink going to be a LONG night

    Happy birthday to Keegan!

    Why is it when I say I'm sick and need to leave early that it never happens? An hour later my boss comes out and asks if I want to plan on leaving early. Um? Yes, that's why I SAID IT AN HOUR AGO. Sigh.

    Did leave all of 40 minutes early, but I also got there a half hour early. 10 minutes. I'm going to bed.
