What do you want to say but feel you probably shouldn’t?
PLEASE NO NEGATIVE COMMENTS (about other posts) OR REBUTTALS (to other posts).

*Covid. I am frustrated. I am sick of precautions. I am jealous of those receiving the vaccine as I know I have a long wait. And I feel guilty for being jealous.

*My daily life. I am so tired of dealing with an “open wound.”

*Fat. Why, oh why, can’t I stick to healthy eating?

WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND?

The serious nature of our political strife is deeply concerning to me.
I'm trying not to be frightened.

I'm covid quarantined and have no symptoms. Should I go get a test done? Should I just wait out the 10 days?

I've gained pounds back that I've worked so hard to lose. Stop eating crap! Maybe that's a shout and not a whisper.

I hate Canvas. I hate being in a freezing cold basement room. i really dislike having 35 kids and 10 groups to see. I know I shouldn't complain about my new job because I really do like it and these are petty complaints, but...

Aikman has decided he's afraid of the slippery floors, but only when it suits him to be afraid.

I'm old, fat and sedentary. All of those things need to change, but I can only control 2 of them. Get on it GG

Controlling my tongue is often difficult.

Trying to see the positive in people can be difficult.

Don't like to be told what I can/can't do.

Life is a challenge.

I will choose to ignore what I can't fix.

Censorship here, or anywhere is not good. ("Here" is not referencing this thread, but PT in general. Needed to clarify since I've been questioned about this post)

I will choose the high road.

I'm dying to get on a plane and travel somewhere.
I miss going to baseball games, football games, and concerts.
I am so annoyed with students who turn in NO work, after I've talked with them and their parents. I'm annoyed with doing more work than the students and parents combined.

Thanks for starting this, Amiga! I do feel a bit better letting that out!

I am happy for those who have been vaccinated but also really jealous.

I want everyone in my family to get vaccinated.
I have to tell my sister I'm moving just two months after my mother passed away. But it's now or never for the move.. And we have places for company to sleep.
I need to lose my Covid weight. I feel like a blob.

Happy my DH and DD got the vaccine because they are in the volunteer fire\EMT service. What about me?

Tired of TV. I really need to read the book I started.

Looking forward to Zumba today. One lady's daughter works for Dr. Gucci so it must be ok for the 6 of us that show up.

Changed boxed meal plans. I feel like the hunter and gatherer in the family.

Need a hair cut. My DH hates my white hair ....but too bad . If I color my hair it will be the the lightest blonde so it will look the same. Ha!

I'm realizing there are more morons in our country than I thought.

In the past two years I have only accomplished two things. Losing 60 pounds and keeping it off for the last 10 months, exercising like an olympic athlete, and getting a new job so I am contributing more to mine and my husband's financial situation so we don't have to spend our reserves and can save them for the day that neither of us can or want to work anymore.

I miss my music and my theatre and fear there will be no opportunities for me when the pandemic is over which in some sick way makes me feel better that no one can really do those things right now or are doing them in a reduced capacity.

Really not looking forward to going to school in person starting January 28th and with kids on February 1st. I hope we are vaccinated by then as the possibility of that was raised, but I doubt it.

Not sure if she is the Belle of the Ball or the Bully on the Block.

It is going to be interesting around here when DH gets his shot well before me.

I'm sad that 2 of our seniors who have been walking the neighborhood for years have silently disappeared. In the past week, Pulse Point has had emergency calls to where I believe they live. (2 different places)

I grow tired of Boy's rants where everything second word starts with F.

Just because I don't have specific plans for the day doesn't mean Man has to think of things for me to do. I HATE gyprocking.

The Covid news coming out of other provinces worries me.

On the plus side, it's quite a beautiful day and I can see blue sky for the first time in too many days to count.

I'm starting my morning reading positive stuff instead of negative stuff.

Yesterday, I enjoyed booking several camping trips for the spring. I LOVE SPRINGTIME!

Now that I'm retired, I'm realizing just how much my cat loves to be in a lap. (I'm not complaining.)

Seven weeks with this covid crap is at the end of my capacity. I just donít feel right. Took tomorrow off.

My classroom is an utter disaster. My sub tomorrow will just have to deal with it.

My house is a disaster too.

Iím really having a hard time finding positives. Except my yarn for a project was delivered today. Ordered it in December

My husband retires tomorrow and we canít formally celebrate. We also have to put our overseas traveling on hold for who know how long. We wanted to do it right away while we still could.

My adult stepdaughter will have a serious spinal surgery- a team of the best doctors in Ireland are trying to plan out the best procedure- and we canít be there.

It does rather feel like ďGroundhog Day.Ē

Itís hard to see full restaurants of happily eating people and know that the right thing to do for all is to stay home.

I am really tired of wearing a mask with glasses under a hat! 😷

I am extremely grateful for my cat, plenty of food, fresh water, a cozy 🏡 home, the Internet, books to snuggle up with, being retired, and having a DH that understands me.

Thanks, Amiga, for starting this thread.

Iím worried about my granddaughter. Sheís is one year old and her hair is falling out! She has actual bald spots in many areas. The doctor thinks it may be due to an autoimmune disease. Our poor baby!

So glad it's Whisper it Wednesday and not Three word Thursday because I can't put my whispers into 3 words!

1. Is it a full moon? Is it the impending snow? My kids where horrible today and they are normally good. I had to have a few heart to hearts with some of mine and of course, whenever that happens, I worry I'm going to get parent e-mails/complaints.

2. My teacher partner continues to be clueless. She gave everyone 100% on a big project, and some of them were REALLY bad. She was talking at lunch about how she is on Tinder. I know Tinder at one point was known as a hook up site and this is a Catholic School. Maybe it's not anymore. Regardless, maybe she should actually grade papers more accurately or plan something instead of being on Tinder. There's so much more but I don't want to give too much away. I just can't take it anymore though.

3. I am going out eat with my parents tonight, though, so I can't wait for that.

4. I did think this week went by fast. While I wish tomorrow was Friday or Saturday, I can't believe it's already going to be Thursday!

bummer that we were told that teachers were told we could start signing up for the vaccine...but there is no sign-up available, and no one knows what we're talking about, and there's no vaccine to be had.

don't want to go back to F2F Tuesday because: COVID worse ever--apparently my state has the highest percentage of positivity--yea! we're the winners! and because then i'll only be getting in 3/5 of the curriculum....

cranky that i haven't been able to run or even walk....hoping doc says that i'm clear on monday and i won't have to wait another week.

a 3-day weekend is a lovely way to start the 2nd week of school after a 3-week break!

My mother loves to paint and redecorate rooms. In 6 years she has painted every room in her house twice. She wants to paint my living room. I do not want her to paint my living room. I'm pretty sure my living room is going to be painted anyway

I really wish I could quit my job and just be a mom. I suck at trying to be teacher and mom.

I did a decent job with my diet until PMS hit. Now for 3 days I have snacked like crazy.

I am scared my baby brother is going to die this year. He has had cancer and it maybe back. He is also an alcholic who is letting things get to him, so of course to hide that pain he drinks.

My dear aunt has brain cancer after a battle with breast cancer. 1/19 she has gamma knife surgery. Apparently it is good that her cancer was found so early and is not as deep as they thought.

Not sure how my mom is doing. SOmetimes I think she is holding her own and other times I think she is losing it. Alzheimers is not fun, and I worry about the day she doesn't remember me and my love for her.
