I agree...

Years ago, when I first started teaching, we could focus on the fun and magic of this time of year. We made ornaments, learned about the traditions of other cultures, baked and decorated cookies...

You are most welcome...

That's what we are all here for. Hang in there as best you can. Winter Break is hopefully coming for you soon and you can relax and re-charge with those you love.

I totally get it about the different responsibilities people have, especially parental ones. I hope you can get together and plan a fun day. I love seeing my upstate NY friends, but it got to be...

Doing your best...

That's all anyone can ask you. It has to be enough because your physical and mental well-being and your family life hangs in the balance. Shame on your principal for being insensitive and...

Good to hear from you!

So glad you are doing well personally and your son is thriving, as well. I remember when he started college. I am also very sorry about your dog. I did not realize he was gone, but very happy you...

I would meet halfway...

I know for me now, a 4 hour trip for a day (two hours there and two hours back) would be a lot if I was planning on returning home the same day and especially if I were traveling alone to meet a...

I have had the organization Pickup Please come several times in the last couple of months. It is such an empowering feeling to get rid of stuff.

Loved it!

I saw it when it first came to my area a few weeks ago. She is a true hero and it was a wonderful film. Highly recommend. And, I learned things about her I didn't know.

Wishing your friend well...

You are a great friend to Larry! The other posters are right--he is getting the care he needs, and hopefully will have an uncomplicated recovery from the hip surgery. He is in the right place to get...

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

I just wanted to take the time to wish my friends on here a wonderful Thanksgiving. When I was teaching, we would be dismissed at 12:45 and then the running around would begin. It is even a bit worse...

Good to hear from you...

I am glad that you are able to experience happiness in life again. Losing a spouse and watching him deteriorate over 7 years has got to be rough.

Enjoy the planning for our trip to Ireland....

So sorry...

I worked in a cliquey school with a principal who acted like I was invisible. It was awful to feel marginalized like that. I also stopped eating in the Faculty Room because I felt excluded from...

Thank you, Twin2!

It was my first attempt, as well. Hopefully, it will turn out okay. We really had a fun time on the trip, and I'm hoping it will be a great memento of it.
