Re: Curiously inappropriate things seen at work

Sandee has a partially torn tendon in her hip. Lots of pain, hard to walk. Instructed by doctor to use crutches, but that's not working, so we bought a wheelchair. Her school is enough uphill from the parking lot that she can't wheel herself in, and the chair is just heavy enough that she'd have a h...

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

I'd been maintaining for quite a while. Then we went to California. I slid about 10 pounds in the wrong direction. Today is a new day!

Re: A New Thread For Whining and General Gnashing of Teeth

Note that it is a charter school, so you kind of expect a certain amount of non-conformity.

Re: A New Thread For Whining and General Gnashing of Teeth

It means that this summer the state school board created a new path to a license for people with a degree in a particular subject who do not have formal / recognized teacher training. I'm not opposed to allowing people who haven't gone to school to get a degree in teaching the opportunity to teach. ...

Re: A New Thread For Whining and General Gnashing of Teeth

My wife has a new unlicensed teacher in her department (and she's the head of the sped dept) who for some reason doesn't get the concepts of appropriate comments and personal space. He's a former seminary teacher, and I'm guessing this is why.

I've always wanted to serve on a jury, but I agree that a month-long trial would be a bit much.

Re: California Riverside Mission

She was high strung before her son left, but yes, having your child gone for two years probably doesn't alleviate those issues in most people.

She also has a four year old, so theoretically she'll get to do this again in her 50s.

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

As I posted on Twitter/Facebook, yesterday was a bad day, a day I have dubbed the Fatpocalypse. Sad / mild depression (nothing horribly severe) and I decided fast food therapy was in order. So one, maybe two steps back. Just have to be more disciplined for a while.

Re: California Riverside Mission

Now I'm wondering if Elder Stabler is still out here somewhere? I saw on FB that he was maybe going to need surgery or something, but can't find it now, and she didn't give details. It's way too hot to be here on bikes, but I guess it's better than Iraq or someplace. Oh, and his mom seemed really f...

If I hadn't been weak and cheated one night, I'd be to the next short term goal! Oh well.

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

I was on vacation from June 24 until July 10. Hadn't heard about floods, glad to hear KMD is safe.

Sorry to hear about the tree. Our lawn was doing poorly when we got home. Insufficient water for the heat.

Gained over 10 pounds while on vacation at one point, but:

Haven't weighed in for a while because Reasons(TM).

Today is a good day, though. A special day, if you will:

371.2/367.8/359.9/299.9

So I've finally hit my next "short term goal" that wasn't very short term! Could the be the start of more progress? Maybe! Stay tuned...
