BOO!

Hello All!

WOW-It has been almost 2 years since I have posted here. I finally figured out how to log back in-lol! I am usually on Facebook. Oh WAIT-we have a new puppy-he will be a year old July 8th. He is a Jack Rascal Terrorist…I mean a Jack Russell. Oh WAIT-I am also getting married July 21st-we are getting married in Cancun, Mexico. I just thought I would drop by and say HI—HI!

Toodles,

Trying To Get out of the Black Hole-School

Hello all!

So sorry I haven’t been here! I have been so busy and fighting the blues too. My computer crashed for a few weeks-the desktop. My laptop magically is connected now. Like Dennis said-maybe I will be back next summer-lol-but I only get two months off. I am off of work today-took the day off. I am flying with my Dad this evening. We are going to Austin to see my younger brother and his wife. Cousin M is back in Cincinnati and has been there for two weeks. He will probably be there another week or less-WE HOPE! Thank you all that continue to keep up with the updates and post messages! I have also been a LOT sad these last few weeks. I miss my Patch so much. It does get easier and thet it gets harder. I am considering deleting my account at Mercedes Rocks. It is just too much work now. I have also joined Facebook and I am addicted to it right now-I have connected with so many friends from school. ..and here-lol. It also has so many fun games-I can’t get off of it-lol! I know I am rambling from one subject to the next, but I just had to update you to let you know that I am here and alive. I also need to be packing for my trip, but I am procrastinating as usual. I miss you all!!! (((HUGS))) Mere

p.s. My Google Reader is so full! Please let me know if I have missed anything of importance (important news-sickness-happenings) with you all. I just don’t think I can handle reading everything right now.

Great News

Hello All! I am so excited~woohoo~party time…I just got the call today from our new principal…I am officially teaching 5th grade this school year. Whew! I have so much to do these next two weeks. I have to learn to be smarter than a 5th grader and I have to figure out what to do with all of my stuff from Kindergarten-aaahhhh! I have In-service tomorrow (that means I am in class all day-so hard to stay awake-I am used to 20 minute intervals from Kindergarten-lol) and I start back on the 28th of July. I will meet my new 5th graders on July 30th. I know I need to be posting about my vacation…but I have to downsize all of my photos-anyone know an easy way to do this all at once with all of them???

Thank You All!

I have been wanting to do some type of post showing stats of my blog. I found this Custom Receipt Maker over at Fighting Windmills. This was much easier and a lot more fun. Thank you all for your visits, comments, friendship, love, prayers, and support! YOU ROCK!

Happy Birthday~Gina

U is for Update

Hey guys and gals! Thanks for helping me reach over 20,000 sniffs~visits! Woohoo! Party time!

I’ve been very busy lately and probably will be through the month of May. The end of the school year is wild and crazy~especially for ME the Procrastinator-lol! It is also ball season and I like to go to the ball fields and watch my students and former students play ball. I also enjoy the socialization. I really enjoy getting out when I make myself do it. Ball season is great for me right now since I have been quite the hermit lately.

M is for Migraine

Hey all!

Sorry I have not been mine blogging self. I was hit hard with a migraine after we returned from Sunday Dinner. It was a doozy. Way to start off my first week back to school-lol. I’m still not feeling too well. I apologize for not commenting back on your comments as fast as I usually do and returning visits! I hope to be back to normal real soon. Thanks for all of your concern/support about my blog. I’m wondering what it looks like to you guys. It looks fine in Internet Explorer but not in Firefox-which I had changed to a few weeks ago and which I thought I liked. Me left sidebar at the top has disappeared-gotta fix that tonight-hopefully. I believe my meme participation may drop too-hehe. Have a great day! Mere


Don’t forget to visit my Blog of the Week: Teresa has written a wonderful post about In the Spotlight.

What in the World

I do not have a clue as to what happened here at Mercedes’ World! Everything just went whack! Many of my pics have just disappeared and I didn’t do a thing. Aaaaahhhhhh! Hopefully I can get it back to normal today!

Thank goodness Mercedes Rocks is ok! But this blog took a logn time to get it where it is today! Even pics on other pages are gone-My Blinkie Page and Pics Page are blank-aaaahhhhh!

Me again~It looks fine in Internet Explorer but not in FireFox-aaahhh!

edited 4-18-08: I figured it out-so simple: just right click where an image is and uncheck block images from…DUH!

Random Ramblings

I have had some various things going through my mind and instead of posting about each one, I just thought I would ramble on about them. I talk out loud, ask questions out loud, and often answer back-lol. This is me just rambling out loud! Feel free to comment, leave feedback, and leave suggestions. Have a great weekend & Happy Easter!

  1. Tonight: I just went to get Jedd something to eat. It is a beautiful night! The moon is awesome! That is why Easter is this Sunday: The Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring Solstice. I just saw a cool bumper sticker: God answers “Knee-mail” 🙂
  2. Internet Browser: I am using Mozilla Firefox now. I have tried it before, but I am a creature of habit, so I went back to Internet Explorer. I decided to try it again, because some blogs at blogspot load slow and I thought I would test out the difference. WOW! What a difference. I have fallin’ in love. I just got to get the hang of it. What internet browser do you use?
  3. Laptop: I have been wanting a laptop for some time now. I am really ready to purchase one now. Jedd has found something else to do on the computer, which is cutting into my computer (blogging) time-lol! Any suggestions on what kind to purchase or what I really need to have loaded on it?
  4. Memes: I have recently found some more cool blogs by participating in memes! I love participating in memes! Check my What are Memes Page to learn more. Do I need to continue to post a link to more about memes on my memes posts? Has it been helpful?
  5. NaBloPoMo: I am participating in NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) for the month of March. The theme is lists. I haven’t followed the theme every day (isn’t required) but I have posted every day. I am going to participate in April too. The theme is letters-won’t be following the theme for that much-I don’t think. I have been posting a NaBloPoMo Button at the bottom of each of my posts. I am not going to do that anymore. I have the badge in my sidebar and I have NaBloPoMo as one of the categories/tags.
  6. Mr. Linky: I have been using Mr. Linky where bloggers can add their links to their posts that relate to my posts (usually memes). I was going to stop using this and just let bloggers comment and find them through their comments, but a blogger commented today and I couldn’t find her through her link there. Thank goodness she left her link with Mr. Linky. I finally found her. So using Mr. Linky is still up in the air.
  7. Death in the family: My Dad’s cousin was just diagnosed with terminal cancer. He passed away yesterday morning. Bless him and his family!
  8. Tims Ford State Park: I will be going to Tims Ford State Park this weekend. My aunt and her family (from Signal Mountain, TN) have a cabin there for the weekend. I’m not sure if the whole Gunsmoke Gang (Matt, Dillon, Marshall) will be there or not. Matt is my 19 year old cousin who is battling renal cell carcinoma and has been for 5 years. I hope to see him there.
  9. Dad: Dad came over today and visited me. He also washed 3 loads of clothes.I napped more than visited-oops! He had a good visit with his grandchild too: Patch. I’m glad he came over! I love my Dad! He is awesome!
  10. Patch: Patch isn’t doing good right now. We went to the Vet this week and Doc C took him off of the antibiotic and put him on Cipro. I have read that Cipro is not FDA approved for dogs. He has gotten sick twice this week shortly after I have given him this horse pill. He has been so blah this last week. His sores are coming back-in the same places. He also is shaking/trembling again-which is how the whole thing started. He has been licking more spots on him and creating more sores. Aaaaahhhh! I just don’t know what to do. I had planned on having his yearly shots the first week of April (Spring Break) and also having him sedated to have dental work done. I may have to do this sooner. I still wonder if he has ear and/or nasal mites. I am going to ask the Doc to do scrapings and look under the microscope. Doc C says the skin problems are an autoimmune disease. He is also on an anxiety med which supposedly doesn’t take effect until after a few weeks of taking. But what is making him sick? Please view my Dogs Page to read more about my 11 year old dalmatian who got sick at Thanksgiving. He was mis-diagnosed with lymphoma and correctly diagnosed with not having lymphoma. We just need a correct diagnosis on what in the world is really going on! Thanks so much for your continued support, thoughts and prayers! WOOF!

Memes: If you like to play, I am hosting two new memes (Scrumptious Sunday & Hump Day Humor) at my other site: Mercedes Rocks. Please come on over and check it out! I would love to have you participate! Thanks!

Anyone Can Miss a Day

The Thursday Threesome #5

Anyone Can Miss a Day

Onesome: Anyone Has anyone made an impression on you lately? No, not on the national level, but at work or school or just ‘around’. …or even here on the web?

I have had quite a few bloggers I have just met make an impression on me lately! Here are a few of them: Live and Let Di, Hootin’ Anni’s, Life Through a Lens, and The Cook Gang. Just today I came across some really great impressionable sites too!

Twosome: Can Miss Speaking of webbish things (and of course we are <g>!), what types of things do you take a miss on at your place and chose not to post about? Just curious…

I choose not to post about my own personal problems/health issues. I do not want sympathy from anyone and I do not want to sound like a whiney baby! Occasionally I might post a topic that relates to me and my personal battles and health issues and something might come up for a bit. But, I choose to keep these things to myself here. I also don’t blog about school that much! I have a class website that holds all of the needed and necessary info there. I have permission from parents to post about their children there and I try to keep it that way!

Threesome: a Day On a similar note: do you post every day? …or just whenever? …or is every session at the computer a spur to work up a little something?

Right now I am posting every day. I am participating in NaBloPoMo for the Month of March and have to post every day. The theme is lists but I do not have to follow the theme. Even before March I was posting every day. Now that I do post every day, I feel I would be lost and behind if I stopped doing this-lol!

If you like to play memes, I am hosting two new memes (Scrumptious Sunday & Hump Day Humor) at my other site: Mercedes Rocks. Please come on over and check it out! I would love to have you participate! Thanks!
