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.

Blogoversary

Hello All!

I have been out of touch lately-so busy with switching to 5th grade and just the beginning of the year in general.  I get home late and sometimes continue to work or just crash. We have mid-term reports going out today, so I have been finishing up with averaging out grades-this is a new concept to me…coming from Kindergarten.

My trip to Cincinnati was great. My aunt has a Garmin (GPS system) and it directed us to where we needed to go. That Garmin is awesome. I want one real soon. We had a great visit! Thank goodness M was out of ICU and he was coherent to us being there. He came back home to TN last night-woohoo!

Today is my one year blogoversary. I can’t believe I have been here for a year! I really have made some great friends this last year. Love you all! (((HUGS)))

Mad with barklove!

WOOF!

Swollen Feet

Hey All! Just got home at 8:30 p.m. CST. My feet have been hurting each night, but I have never really looked at them. Today, I looked down and they are swollen. They have never done this-aaaahhhh! I am still not ready for school, but that is ok. We start officially tomorrow. WOW! The students and parents know what I have had to do and completely understand. I will be very busy this weekend. I still haven’t been to visit Hump Day Humor players and it will be Scrumptious Sunday before I know it. Maybe I will just not play this week-I dunno. I believe I am going to drop out of blogging every day. Too much pressure-LOL! Thanks to you all for continuing to visit! I haven’t forgotten about you-I have just been busy. I am going to go prop my feet up and hope the swelling goes down. Someone suggested taking water pills-but I don’t have time to go to the restroom at school. We only have a restroom break scheduled on Fridays-that is a joke-you would have to understand what we have had to go through to create our schedule-it completely sucks! Anywho-going to prop feet now! Hope all is A-ok in your world! Toodles, Mere

Hello All!

I didn’t need to sign up for NaBloPoMo this month-lol! Anywho~I am warn worn out! I worked for ten hours today (on my feet) and that is a big change from doing nothing for sixish weeks! I believe the Scraping blog is shut down. When I go there-it says it cannot connect-woohoo! Maybe soon I will have some better quality posts. I will be working at school all day tomorrow. I don’t have to bring my stuff home either-woohoo. It is a secret-but I get to keep it all at school. I just can’t say how I do-lol! I need to catch up on blog reading-way behind, but I am pooped right now. I am gonna go plop my tired self on the couch. Hope all is A-Ok with you all!

Toodles Noodles, Mere

Busy

Whew! I am worn out. I have been working at school trying to get my new 5th grade class ready and get my stuff out of the Kindergarten room. I have spent so much money (thousands of dollars) on my Kindergarten stuff. Now I need to bring it home-aaaaaahhhhh! I wish I could just say-give me $1,000 and you can have it all! LOL! I don’t know what I am going to do. My Dad usually helps me out a lot, but he is working now.

I believe I am going to have a WordPress blog for my pictures of 5th grade. If I do, I am asking all of you to NOT leave comments over there. If you would like to say anything about the pics-just come over here or go to my 5th grade website and comment on that blog. The reason is I don’t want my parents to find this blog. Does this make sense?

Anywho~I haven’t even visited Hump Day Humor participants-aaaaaaahhhh!

Hope you all are A-OK! Mere

Prayers Needed

My cousin, M, has been battling Renal Cell Carcinoma for the past six years. It all started at an indoor soccer game. He will be 20 in August. This has been a long battle for him, his family, and all of us! He has had six major surgeries, been through chemo and radiation numerous times, and now he has four tumors again.

One tumor is sitting on his one kidney and bladder. It is 6 inches long and the doctors say they can’t operate on it because M would not make it through the surgery-he would hemorrhage to death. He is having surgery this morning and they are putting in a stint to relieve the pressure from his kidney and bladder. After this, the doctors will decide what to do next.

He applied to a cancer study in Maryland but didn’t qualify-due to him being on chemo numerous times. There is another study in Cincinnati that is more targeted to his specific needs that we hope he qualifies for. The hospital will fed-ex his scans to that hospital today.

He is a very strong young man. He has accomplished so much during his journey fighting this horrible and rare cancer in children. He graduated from High School with honors. He has also completed his first two years in college.

I have a luncheon to attend today and then I am headed to Chattanooga to be with him and the family. I believe in prayer-I believed it helped this time last year when we thought he was going to have his colon removed-he didn’t have to have it removed. Please pray with me for my cousin, M, and his family. Thank you so much!

EDIT: I did not go to Chattanooga today-M’s Mom said it would be better to come on Sunday. They are warn out and he will be coming home tomorrow-which will be another tiring day for him to get settled in and have to deal with the feeding bag. Still waiting for the exact outcome of the surgery and what the future holds.

New Website

Hello All! I have been converting my Kindergarten classroom website to my NEW 5th Grade classroom website. I am so excited! I have also added a blog page on the website. I hope to blog about our class over there and post pics for everyone to view. This way the parents can have pics of their child and I don’t have to make/create scrapbooks anymore…so much work! Head on over there and check it out and let me know what you think. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!
