HOLY COW, it's MARCH....DYK???
Thu, 03-01-2012 - 9:44am


...good morning, ladies??

...I simply cannot believe it is MARCH?!?!

...It's coming in like a lamb here?

...what about where you're at?

...we basically didn't have winter?

...it's still possible for us to get snow in March, but it's rare, and it won't last more than a day or two, if we do?

...so I'd say we're out of the woods?


...Karol, I hope, for the girl's sake, it wasn't a connection to her?

...I mean, how awful for her to have to live with that?

...and that may be why it's so hush, hush?

...so as not to mess with the investigation and the guy get off on a technicality?

...but honestly, if I lived in the community, I'd take a little, tiny bit more peace of mind if it was?

...ok, that sounded WAY worse than I intended?

...you see...I get really, really twitchy thinking of random acts of violence?

...the kind no one has any control over?

...I choose to believe that being a totally random victim is rare...there's usually a connection, somewhere?

...that way I feel a *bit* more in control of my family's safety?

...make sense?

...still...super scary and terribly sad, no matter how you slice and dice it?

...Christol, you GO, and enjoy your cabin time?

...sounds awesome?!?!?!

...but be careful walking in the woods, girl?!?!


...every momma needs a break, and girlie you need this?

...I'm a much better mom when I get breaks?

...Lauri, I'm glad your new assistant starts soon?

...I had a really, really bad dream last night?

...and you all know my history with dreams coming true?

...and typically I can tell the difference between the ones that have the possibility of coming true and the ones that don't?


...like, I don't want to talk about it, but I need to get it off my chest?

...it was about my dad?

...and in my dream, I couldn't pull myself up off the floor because I was cry-heaving so bad?

...and I know the reality is, someday I will have to deal with such crushing grief?

...and I got a small glimpse of what some of you deal with, only you don't get to wake up from it?


...I just can't shake it?

...and what's worse...his will was unsettled, so there was a huge dispute?

...NOT what I wanted to see, but very possible?

UMMM, honestly I would have probably been more hurt first, popped over to mad but NEVER ok with it, nope;)

I hate dreams like that Missi and the crushing grief part is true, so do me a favor and give your Dad a call just to say I love you. Do it because you can. ((hugs))

...yeah, Christol, that Valentine's scenario wouldn't have sat well with me either?

...more weirdness regarding their relationship?

...Gerad thinks he's seeing a married woman...was when they started dating?

...that's why he won't firm up plans with her until LAST minute, won't commit to anything beyond today, and Gerad says the only reason a man wouldn't want sex on Valentine's day would be because he already got it?

...spent the night with him Saturday night, no BD...Sunday morning, rather than hanging out all day, he drops hints that he needs to work, and she needs to leave?

...I get a sneaking suspicion he had "plans"?

...either that or he's just not that in to her?

...IF they hang out for extended periods, it's always HIS doing?

...she's always available, which to me is a red flag too?

...either way, it doesn't sit well with me, but when I try to talk to her about it, she defends him, so I know she needs to figure it out on her own?

...I only offer my opinion when I'm asked, too?

...I don't want to hurt my friendship, but I think she needs to pull off the rose colored glasses?

...scares me?

...scary, scary, scary?

...and maybe it's just that he's got some hangups about sex...either way...I'd run, not walk, away from that?

...but it's not my decision?


...so, how was everyone's weekend?

...ours was nice?

...pretty relaxing?

...for us?

I'm still LOL'ing about Claire's scary eyebrows?

Christol, please don't feel like a failure because you cannot affort that insane amount of money?

Frank and I couldnt' afford it either?

The crazy aide has been back to work for about two weeks?

She is not any better?

She left us hanging during a tornado drill last week?

I really thought I was gonna hurt her?

I have been sick?

Presidents day weekend I had a fever Sat.-Mon.

Very cool that they provide a netbook for her:)

AND, I really can't stand the whole, "we know they suck as a teacher but we can't get rid of them". You can get rid of them, it just takes a lot of work. We had an AP who came in a few years ago and she was known as the sweeper because she did the work to get rid of bad teachers and everyone LOVED her. My new AP is following in those footsteps and I love her too;) Good luck with not having her again and thanks for checking in!!
