Finally Feeling a Little Better

And it's a good thing, since I have an 8 AM meeting and a 6 PM PTA meeting, with an entire day of school sandwiched in between! What a strange illness this was! I had not eaten a thing in 48 hours and I am an EATER! LOL

How about you...feeling okay??

Monday, November 28, 2011


I have been sick since Saturday night. Have not eaten a thing since Saturday, but am still going to work today. Think of me, dealing with 20 5-year-olds and not up to snuff.

Off to drag myself into the shower...

Quickie Post

Just popping in to say that I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, if you live where Thanksgiving is celebrated or that you're at least having a nice Thursday! My arms have been too full of baby to type much - Pop Pop and I are in our glory! Hopefully, I'll have some new pictures to post soon. In the meantime, here's a couple of cute puppies just to make you smile!

I hope you'll take a moment to think about all the things YOU have to be thankful for, whether or not you celebrate Thanksgiving.

OOPS, Did I Really Say That?! Part One

So the NBA players are suing the NBA for...are you ready...SIX BILLION DOLLARS in damages. DAMAGES, as in, when someone gets hurt, they can sue for damages. If the players win, they get SIX BILLION DOLLARS.

Six BILLION dollars is hard to imagine. Let me put it into perspective for you:

Six BILLION dollars makes the philanthropist who donated $100 million to the Mayo Clinic for cancer research sound like a cheapskate. After all, he donated 98.4% LESS than the NBA players will get if they win.
And the philanthropist who donated $25 million to tiny Thiel college in Pennsylvania...well, that's just a drop in the bucket at FOUR-TENTHS of ONE PERCENT of what the players will receive.Virginia's education budget was cut by $550 million dollars last year - chump change for the NBA players to make up at only 9% of what they will receive...right??

So what's the OOPS quote??
Here. It's by the NBA players' attorney, David Boies.

Boies said at the players' association headquarters,

"They(the NBA owners) did a terrific job of taking a very hard line and pushing the players to make concession after concession after concession, but greed is not only a terrible thing -- it's a dangerous thing."

Wait...is Boies really calling the OWNERS greedy?! I'm glad his PLAYERS arent' greedy!!

Oh, and PS, Mr. Boies - if you win the suit, drop a bug in your players' ears about Virginia's cut in the education budget. Maybe they could donate a couple thousand dollars so that my school can replace the 12 computers in the computer lab that no longer work.
Heck...if they can't swing that much of a donation, our school will even settle for two-ply toilet paper.

Things I Don't Understand, Part Two

Hobbies where the best
you can hope for
is to not die.

This is my hobby and it's
enough excitement for me.
Usually I don't feel like I'm in
imminent danger of death.Although sometimes Foster gets tired of me moving him and he bites me.And I did actually sew through my own finger once.

But usually, my hobby is relaxing and fun.
And when I'm done, I have something to show for it besides being dead.

These just don't look either fun OR relaxing.

They just look like death waiting to happen.

Am I right?

Things I Don't Understand, Part One

Kim Kardashian's wedding
I do understand that it's her money, to do with as she sees fit. I also understand that she thinks she works hard for it. (Hmmm, try working construction or teaching kindergarten, Kim.) Maybe someone should have told her that it's not about the WEDDING...it's about the MARRIAGE (which, in her case, lasted 72 days.) But anyway, all I can say is that if I EVER had a spare 10 million dollars, I would hope to do some good with it. I would work to stop stuff like this
and thisand maybe do something about thisKind of makes you understand why people in other countries
are sometimes not too fond of Americans.
But we're not all like Kim.
Some of us do stuff like thisand like this.

These pictures were taken by an onlooker, who was powerless to stop the attack on this poor man! Fortunately, the victim is expected to make a full recovery. Prepare yourself, then scroll down to see!

Sorry, I just HAD to, LOL!
May your troubles always be smaller than you imagine.
Still no power in CT where our granddaughter Zoey is, BTW!

Still No Power in CT

The good news: our field trip was maybe the BEST one ever!! This class was SO well-behaved and that is not just me saying that - that came directly from one of the chaperones!! I was proud - they listened well, paid attention, were respectful, followed the rules, etc!
The bad news: there is STILL no power where our daughter-in-law, Sarah, our son, Trevor and our little granddaughter, Zoey live! Thankfully, Sarah's parents were able to loan them a kerosene heater (which is scary, but necessary). And also, Sarah's parents' electricity came back on yesterday, so maybe there is hope in the offing.

It's hard with no electricity when you have a baby! Fingers crossed it will be back on soon. This has been since Saturday.Trevor said they have police officers stationed at both ends of the local gas station - it's one of the few that has power and also has the ability to use credit/debit cards. He said that the line is several blocks long in both directions 24 hours a day! The police are keeping order...(for $132 a day, or whatever. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, check out my post from Saturday, Oct. 29).
