Here's mine

I graduated from college with an Elementary Ed degree, but didn't use it until 15 years later, when my youngest was in 3rd grade. My student teaching was in kindergarten, and that was what I wanted...

Rusty, I agree!

I checked on the situation by phone. The museum admits only 50 people per hour, and has distancing circles marked out on the ground for entrance line, and in viewing areas. Masks are required. We'll...

Out and About!

Tomorrow marks two weeks since my second vaccine, and I feel like a bear coming out of hibernation! We have been ultra-conservative about quarantining.
I am celebrating by getting a haircut, a...

Happy development!

Slowly things are improving. I'm glad you will be able to see your friends in person again. It is uplifting to be together. Enjoy your times at the Senior Center!

Light at the end of the tunnel

This is wonderful! Vaccines may not get us all the way back to being as carefree around other folks as we once were, but it is a huge benefit. Happy for you.

Changes in our community

In my 30 1/2 years of teaching public school, I worked in 5 schools. Now 3 of them are closing. The first one closed when I worked there. The district built a very large school, and closed 4 small...

Grandbabies light up our lives! For a long time, Autumn "talked" in long strings of jibberish. Now at 3 y.o., she speaks clearly, but I do miss being called, "Gwama" instead of, "Grandma". Cherish...

We all have different perspectives...

...and our own perspective changes at different points in our lives.
By stating her opinion, ("I love my job."), your friend wasn't necessarily criticizing yours.

I am also looking forward to subbing again 2+ weeks after second vaccine. For me that would be at the start of March. I am 71, but in good health. I don't want to endanger my health in any way, but...

here's what I did

My son was always forgetting. I always got belated cards. DD was very good about it, but evidently never reminded her brother.
For the past several years I have made family wall calendars through...

More unsafe practices we all survived

Teaching first grade, we had an annual Halloween party. One of the activities was bobbing for apples. Now the thought of everyone's nose and mouth dunking into the same water makes me cringe!

Depending on my mood, I love
sweet and creamy (coffee ice cream, chocolate pudding, original Yoplait yogurt)

Thinking about foods is all I can...

I wish the best for you both

Sonoma, you are such a blessing to her. All who struggle do not have loving family to help in times of need. At some point his pandemic will pass. I am hopeful that the new administration will bring...

Me too

Difficult, isn't it?
Our granddaughter is only 3 and in preschool, so we don't have to have her attend Zoom meetings, turn in assignments, etc. She simply takes a 'leave of absence' from school for...

I had to let the district know by this week. Reluctantly, I decided to stay home until the health threat is over, whether that is a semester or a whole school year. I will miss it, but because of our...

Thank you for all of the replies.

I see lots of you are as undecided as I am, and considering how and if to go back. This morning I read a draft of the recommendations that our state ed dept will send out to districts. It leaves a...

Not I

I didn't START teaching until my youngest was in 3rd grade, so when I retired 30 years later, they were grown and flown!
