That is ridiculous!

Many years ago, our district required LP's that took about 6-8 hours a week to hand write. ( Before computers)
I called it "The Great American Novel." I was young and dumb, and ours were not due...

I do not like vague emails either......

As years have gone by, I have noticed admin ( as well as most of us) have become very careful what we put on email. It always makes me chuckle when someone just "lets loose" on email. ...

I'm sorry you had

such a hard day. Tomorrow will be a new better day!
I HATED it when I'd email, get no response, and then have it boomerang back to someone saying I never sent an email. I had that happen a few times...

For the last maybe 12 yrs

our state pushed all standards down a year.
Lots of kids have struggled with concepts that they are just not developmentally ready to do.
The telling part is kids who have flunked or are older,...

It sounds like you got your dream job! You'll be amazed how those 2 extra hours a day help you. You'll feel better rested and have more time.
You might even find yourself stopping by the school...

1x a kid who lied a lot did something really wrong.
I told Mom, who immediately called him on the phone to hear his side of the story.
I don't usually think so quickly, but told...

I have only seen him a few times,

but he is right on here! It was almost like he had been a teacher before. Parents united with teachers help kids learn and behave.

The 1 thing I disagree with though is I do not think parents are...

I love it! I have heard:

Love is a verb, but never "parent is a verb!" How true!
Yeah, when we were kids and finished math homework, we took it to our dad who checked it over.
If a problem was wrong, we had to go fix it....

Ruby Tunes and Aida

Ruby Tunes, I learned very similar ways to cope due to a similar mom. I am very thankful too for having learned a lot of lessons and values. They have helped in life through some really tough times...

Thanks, it is good to know others feel this way too. Yes, there are definitely exceptions depending upon where your child is at in life and the type of problem.
That is why I would not leave a...

I can't imagine no heat in Michigan!

That is crazy!
I get cold easily too, so I learned to wear layers.
In the winter, my 1st layer is Under Armor.
During not such cold times, I would wear a fleece vest over a sweater, over a shirt...

I am so sorry all of this is hitting you at

1x. You have worked most of your life if you are able to retire. You deserve the time you and your husband have left together.
Since it is just a small amount of $ you'd lose, the $ probably is not...

This post really brings out a lot of feelings

in me that I hope some people will think about. It could be just in my corner of the world, but I don't think so.
I taught school most of my life and raised 2 adults who are functioning pretty well...

I would not be happy, but I am kind of old

I think our kids need to learn slowly at a young age with emotional support from their parents: There are many types of people in the world.
Some are nice and some aren't. Some things...

Does anyone know where to look

to find out how much you will be eligible to get? I got a notice from SS about 3 yrs ago that told me I'd get an estimated amount, but I am curious what I'd get at what age. THX I am afraid to...

I hate bats! I have a really steep pitch on

my roof. Bats made a home there under the porch and they come back every yr. for about 2-3 months.
A friend was able to screen over 1 of 2 places they nested. The pitch is too high w/out scaffolding...

Beatles - Ed Sullivan

My parents woke us up when I was 4 years old. They wanted us to see The Beatles b/c they said that they were going to make history.
That is the only time they ever woke us up for something like that!

I never perfected the art of napping either, but everyone in my family has. They can catnap 20-30 minutes and get up refreshed.

I am playing now and missed my 1st one.

I never knew the popular toy to teach biology.
I just took a wild guess on a bunch of them. :) It was so fun to see some old items though.
I had never seen the lady movie star either.
