It's been way too long. I have all ready been on Spring Break and come back. (Naples...Hmm...) It was very happy.
I have all ready been back in school for almost a week. (Yes, it's Thursday!!)
And, now I am BACK to working on my blasted class assignments b.c my fourth and final certification class has started. It is not happy, and I do not care for the assignments so far.
However, things are going well. I have new little bees working on their reading that are continuing to make growth and that is very happy.
On a sadder note, one of my great-aunts passed away this week; she had been sick for a long time, so it was a blessing, but it still makes me a little blue. The funeral is today (which I am missing), and I have had her on my mind all day.
I used to stay with her quite a bit when we went to visit my grandparents. She had only sons, so she loved having girls to run around with. Her house was the first I had ever been in with a security system and motion detector. She used to make me use the bathroom before I went to sleep so I wouldn't set it off in the middle of the night. She lived alone, so I guess she was a little paranoid. Anywho, I remember one night (after we watched Larry King together--she's also the only person I have ever watched Larry King with.), I went to bed without going to the restroom. I was miserable the whole night and would have climbed out the window to go, but they were alarmed too. I don't know if I ever fell asleep. I didn't wet the bed, but I came very close. I never told her b.c I knew she would be mortified, but I still remember it like it was yesterday.
She was one cool lady, and I know she's in a better place. Not to get all sappy, but take a moment today to thank God for all the older ladies in your life. They are some of my favorite people. CHEERIO!!
