Location: Wisconsin....about 100 miles south of the Frozen Tundra and 70 miles east of Camp Randall
Good morning Luanne and all to follow.
Luanne - I know what you mean about "difficult" students........as a long term care nurse, I have had "difficult" patients and/ or families in the past and will have them again in the future. All you can do is do your best and hope that some of what you are doing gets through.
Have a day off today and near record warmth is expected here in SE Wisconsin - Phyll, I forbid you to leave for Florida as long as the weather is this good! When it gets cold again, then you can go!! <vbeg>
Have a great day everyone!
Carnival Breeze with Ray B and Aerogirl 5/4/14!
Wind Advisory has been published for most of the day. I'm holding my breath. Hoping there are not too many outages as tonight is the Open House at my son's school. We pick up his Report Card, then go to see all his teachers. He usually has straight A's and no discipline problems, but I still like to have contact with the teachers, and it seems that I do it alone every year cause my husband gets stuck at work. This is his last chance, as we will have an empty nest next year.
DH is supposedly taking tomorrow off and we will head out to do some Christmas shopping - will spend the night and take our time coming home the next day. I really hope to get most of it done. I did a lot on-line last night, but I still have quite a ways to go.
Son will be gone this weekend. He has been invited by the head coach for all the running teams at the University of Southern Maine to come visit the school for the weekend and workout with the team. He is pretty excited. Plus he plans on upgrading his Cross Country Skiis on his way to Maine at a ski shop in NH. He thinks the team has a good shot at second place this year and he wants to do his part.
Othodontist appointment went ok. Teeth are being squeezed now and are pretty sore. Soft foods for awhile. Good thing soup is one of my favorite things in the world.
Off to the gym for PT workout. It isn't helping my hip at all, but making me have even larger thighs so none of my pants fit. I'm not at all happy and think I'll be cancelling all this pretty soon. I'm vain, big man thighs are not an option, so what if I have to drag my leg for the rest of my life.
(Just kidding, ...sort of...)
Good Morning!!! We may never see MikaLyn again now that she has a licence and a car!! However she has come to the realization that she needs gainful employment to pay for gas as Mom, Dad and Evil Stepdad have no intention of paying for it. We told her the school bus still stops at the end of the street as always.
Still fairly mild and a beautiful weekend ahead although the leaves are piling up.
Everyone have a great day!!!

It's going to be a lovely fall day here in upstate NY. The leaves on the trees are not the bright Autumn colors, but are browns, rust, and bronzes. Very beautiful when the sun comes out. I need to get the camera out before all the leaves are gone.
All's quiet here at work, so you know what that means...
Good morning cruisers. I am at the office early so I can get out of here as soon as possible to head to Tampa. I'm looking forward to the concert and then going up to see my parents for a few days (should be fun even though I will have to work.) At least the time will go by really, really fast until my CRUISE!!!
Hi There, Everybody,
It's back to the usual forecast here in Avon Park, FL: it's sunny outside and the temps will be up in the mid-80's all week. Low chance for rain until sometime next week.
Believe it or not, there are seasons down here. The squirrels are scampering about doing their "fall thing" and the colors are changing. And, we do get leaves on the ground from the Oaks.
Last night I was in a deep sleep until 5AM, literally dreaming I was on the cruise ship. I wish it were true!!!!
Have a terrific day! Lynne
Good morning all. Windy day again. (I'm afraid of the wind) At least the sun is shining. Not much planned for the day, just daycare and WalMart.
Woke up missing my kids again, which always puts me in a sad depressed mood. You think after my son being in Tampa for 3 school years and my daughter for 2, I would be used to it. But I'm not. Probably feeling this way since my son's 21st birthday is in 9 days and I can't celebrate it with him. (except by phone)
Luanne--happy to hear everything is brightening for Joe.
Michelle--have a great time at the concert and with your parents. My son works at the Forum but not tonight, he has a class.
"Friends are like stars. You may not always see them but you know they are always there."
It's 55 degrees in the town of Fort worth. My Child hasn't stopped blathering since 6:30 am (wonder where he gets it from ) and it is my golf day~! Nothing better then being one with a driver in this brisk weather!
It's a beautiful morning here and promises to be a wonderful day. My boss returns today after two weeks on a cruise so I'll be in there picking his brain!
VTJen: Enjoy your son's time at home; when my DH and I became empty nesters all we did for 6 months was talk about the children. It was a sad time but also a time of getting to know each other again. I'm not sure if that's the right way to explain it but it certainly was an adjustment for us! Now we love it and can do whatever we want, when we want.
Morning All, from a dreary, wet, 5C Montreal, a very "November" day.
Not much new here today (that is a good thing!) 'cause usually there's too much going on!
I'm hoping to get some more painting done tonight and finish the last 2 doors, then finally clean up the paint stuff.......until next weekend, when we are having someone come in and paint the living room! It never ends, does it?
Good morning from the house of the stomach flu Little one was sick and I got it bad yesterday. Last night middle daughter got it too. I just hope our grandkids don't get it! Oldest picked up middle daughter from school yesterday as I could not move off the sofa or bucket
I am feeling better today, it's a short bug.
Take care mates...still lots of stress here. Phyll, maybe we can see eachother when you are down here?
Dec 9th 2015 Land cruise to Germany and Venice Italy
June 1st 2015--- Denali Explorer Cruise on Star Princess!
Good Morning, its another beautiful sunny fall day in Mass. Its actually nice and warm. Raked more leaves last night, its seems never-ending this year! Getting myself organized to start my holiday baking
Good Morning Mates...I can not belive this weather we are having here in November. In the 70's and going into the 80's by weekend. 8)
I came to work this morning and things just seem to be looking better. We all finally got our uniforms and that boosted moral a bit. At least we all look alike now. I am sure the job is going to get better, it just takes a little time. I thank you all who have sent up prayers and good thoughts. You just DO NOT KNOW how good that feels and how MUCH it helps. I am so proud to call this community my second home with my other family
Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday and I will be off the next 3 days. Headed off to the country to visit my mom and relax. See Yaz all on Monday.
