Saturday Night, January 31, 2015

I only teach about 10 to 12 hours per week and several years ago I worked part-time as an aide for a kindergarten teacher in public school.  I know what it takes to prepare for class.  For instance, today I washed 24 yoga mats, cleaned 12 eye pillows and by tomorrow will wash 20 blankets, by Monday will have made at least a dozen copies of my meditation cd.  No, I do not get paid for all of the above.....but if you know any teachers, they don't get paid for all they do matter if they teach math, art, whatever.  You do the extras because you want to be a great teacher, you do the extras because you care about your students.

Today is the first day since treatment on Wednesday that I have not had meningitis, hopefully the worst is over for this time.

Almost a full moon.......I believe I read that this one is considered a supper moon......because of its
brightness.  I also got a Farmer's Almanac weather update on Wednesday.......these guys say no matter what the ground hog sees or doesn't see, there will be six more weeks of winter, maybe longer.
Interesting to see how these predictions pan out.

Super Bowl Sunday is tomorrow.....confession.....I didn't know until yesterday who was playing.....I never watch anything but the half-time show ( if it is someone I like).  Hopefully I will be watching a great movie tomorrow night or reading.....we watched Saving Mr. Banks tonight, it was wonderful.
Can you believe today is the last day of January, 2015?


  1. The groundhog prediction reminds me of a saying I heard about colds. If you go to bed when you catch cold it will only last seven days. If you conduct yourself as usual it will last a whole week.

  2. You're a dedicated teacher with a caring heart and always go the extra mile for your students. I hope that they appreciate all you do for them.

    I'm glad you're feeling better.

    I'm not sure about the ground hog's prediction but we're having yet another storm for tomorrow. Already there is so much snow and it's difficult to find a place to push the snow. Snow banks are so high that you really have to know that there are business behind the snowbanks.

    Take care,

  3. Confession from me... if it wasn't for the blogs I follow... I would have no idea who was playing in the superbowl... or that it was even playing.

    I am glad you felt well enough to get some things done Jilda... you have to go with it when you can xox
