Good Morning!!!!!!!! I hope aohell doesn't eat this entry, like I have read it has in others journals. Above are pics of my tree. I did have white lights on it, but the cord was green and looked awful. So Jim went out in search of lights with a white cord and was only able to find blue lights. Which actually looks so pretty on the white tree. I hope the 2 video's come up. One is of my granddaughter Marissa singing, the other is of it snowing the other day. Glad it rained last night and melted it all away, lol.
Let's see, I'll start with monday. At school from 12 to 3. Tuesday at school from 8:20am til 3:15pm, exhausted when I came home. Wednesday at school another full day. This time got out at 3:30. Helped teacher clean up room. Thursday, stayed home with Rebecca. She wasn't feeling well the night before and had me up half the night, with her vomiting. She's ok now. Friday, at the school from 12 to almost 4pm. I helped the teacher clean up the room and clear out fridge. I bring home all the extra cartons of milk and cereal and packs of graham crackers. Then I share them with Emma for her kids. We don't buy cereal anymore, lol. Tuesday and wednesday were bad days. Those kids were so wired and just would not listen. We had kindergarten kids going to vice principal for fighting, 5 and 6 yr olds. Two had to go to the nurse for facial wounds, bruised and scraped. Another child sent to school with ringworm!!! Sent home, cannot come back until seen by doctor. One child will not stay in school unless his mother stays with him, and after a couple hours he wants to go home. Another will walk up to someone and hit him or her for no reason. Then there's the cryers, who cry for stupid things like someone won't let him have right then and there a certain color crayon. The teacher and I both agree, some of these kids are just too immature and not at all ready for kindergarten. For some, kindergarten kids we are a babysitting service for theparents, free of charge. The teacher buys out of her own pocket all scissors, crayons, colored pencils, glue, and whatever alse they need to do their school work with. This past week, she spent 70.00 on materials for these kids. They do not know how lucky they are to have such a nice teacher as they have now. The teacher and I have become friends. When the kids go to lunch, we go out to my van and sit and chat. She has to otherwise she is bothered by other students from other classes and other teachers. She does need a break sometimes. I know all about her life, kids, ex husband, boyfriend and she knows all about our family life. It is nice having someone I can chat with in real life, lol. My apartment is in shambles. It needs a thorough cleaning so bad. I will do that tomorrow.
Today I have to go to Emma's and do a load of laundry, so I have something to wear to the christmas party that Jim's boss is having at some restaurant. I do not want to go, but it is all paid for, so we have too. Rebecca is going to spend the night at her sister's, because she'll probably be asleep by the time the party is over. Yea, I can sleep in tomorrow morning, lol.
Mommom I is doing ok, but she won't drink enough water and just nibbles on her meals. Joe told me last night, if she continues this and ends up in hospital again, he will have to agree that a nursing home would be better for her. He has to go back to work soon and he is worried about her.
I also want to thank Lisa,Missie,Nancy,Carol,Lyn,Chrissie,Kathy & Idris,LisaJo,Barbara,Gretchen and Maria for the wonderful christmas cards.
Before I go, LisaJo, I am so very sorry of your loss of your dear sweet furr baby Buddy. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family.
I have to go now and get Rebecca ready. Uncle Joe is taking his mom and Rebecca out. He is buying Rebecca boots, (workboots) lol, just like his. He just came up with a huge box full of cake, cupcakes and cookies from a benefit he went to last night. Nice Joe, she's all sugered up just in time for you to take her out, heeheehee.
Gotta go, Love you all.......................
