Our numbers have skyrocketed

compared to our population recently. I have been very cautious since March due to having an elderly parent. I have changed a tiny bit.
At 1st, I would not eat any veggie/ fruit that had not been...

Wow! You are still really busy teaching....

just not doing the dull parts of it all. :)
I don't think I'll ever teach again due to the total lack of expectations and discipline in schools around here.
Plus, I love sleeping in until late....

We went back to our longest childhood home

probably 25 years ago. When we lived there, I think it was 50 years old. My mom was like an interior decorator who went to Homeramas for ideas. Then she'd come back and find way less expensive ways...

Oh, to shop at an antique store or gallery!

We don't have either unless you go really far away. I miss them, as well as just plain old shopping and bumping into friends too.
I am in a pretty tight bubble of 4 people only since March. ( others...

Where you live....

What is a rough estimate of the % of people who wear masks while shopping? I have been inside stores less than 10 times since March to pick up something quickly. Then once I went in to do some fun...

That happened to me a lot last yr. It got kind of scary b/c I was calling a few teachers I know, "what's her name" behind their backs.
Not in a mean way.....Like if I was trying to explain what...

I love group projects, but not group

grades. Even in my MA program, we had a lazy, undependable teammate we were assigned to work with for the entire term. If a few of us did not do his part, our group would have done poorly. 1/2 of the...

I am glad Connie and Ruby Tunes

had funny stories. LOL
I was hoping to see lots of funny ones, but I guess different people have different humor. We were raised to laugh at ourselves, and I know some people are not "into" that...

Before retirement, I had

several ( 6-7) PTer's who worked with me on several types of projects. We always did it privately b/c we wanted to remain anonymous. ( I'd have put stuff in the open and I am sure others would have...

Yes, I found it 100 x worse when I was working last yr. Now I don't have much to remember.
I seldom hide stuff anymore, b/c I have lost things that way so many times over the years.
At 1 point,...

I never liked mani/pedicures.

Every time I got them done, I ended up with hang nails. If I do it myself, I don't have that problem.
I have been cutting my own hair though since March. I have to admit, I am not super careful....

I am so sorry! That is scary!

I think it can be kept at bay though.
This was many yrs ago, but
my grandma had glaucoma. My aunt is a medical dr. 1x I went back to visit her when she was probably 70's.
I noticed tall pot...

It is very common in some schools

I could relate to a lot of the posts and yours. When I 1st moved here a long time ago, the school was horrible about it. ( I'd come from a much nicer school.)
Everyone knew if you did not eat in...

I think it is very sweet.

I never got grandkids.........just grand puppies. :( I think teens are really social creatures and usually want to spend time with their friends. Maybe though, there is a reason that is for the...

Belinda, Cat, LUV, Sono, and Fish

Belinda and Cat: I am so glad you liked it too. This song brings back such good memories of my mom. I hate it when I go up or downstairs for something and forget.
LUV- A few of us called them brain...

That is too funny! I had a walk of shame like that too once, but didn't have the
jacket for my waist! LOL
The worst part was it was with a skort that I had borrowed from my sister's closet w/out...

I understand missing fun coworkers

from my 1st school too. The bulk of us started out together too. We were young, idealistic, and liked to have fun.
Many of us had kids grow up together too. It was a big school that still felt...

I learned to say this in my head:

You can believe what you want and I'll believe what is right.
It stifles me from saying anything and makes me smile.
Maybe try it! It might work for you too. :):)
