Five Thoughts


If a job’s pay scale was determined by how difficult it is to get a bathroom break I would surely be earning a triple-digit salary.

On the bright side, I don’t start my work day by donning a Kevlar vest and getting  a  pain-killing shot like the TV announcer just said Dallas Cowboy quarterback Tony Romo had to do before the game tonight. Things aren’t going to well for his team as I am writing this, so rib pain may be the least of his worries tomorrow morning.

The fuzzy hair I am developing on my head will not be enough to prevent me from pulling off my Uncle Fester look for Halloween this year.  If I skip the under-eye concealer and take off my head scarf  I think I could fool the entire Addams Family.

In my book there’s nothing much better than pulling weeds in my garden on a beautiful fall afternoon. Riding a horse on a beautiful fall afternoon is better, but hard to pull off since I don’t own a horse, so weeding had to suffice today.


A warm home on a cold day is a wonderful thing, and I was reminded this week to be thankful for that blessing.

What are you thinking?

    Your thoughts are always so touching and you inspire me by your attitude. Your number 1 comment made me laugh out loud. I couldn’t agree more. I think I may just have to share that with my teacher friends! You continue to be in my prayers as you recover and conquer.

    I’ll echo the previous comment!
