MNnancy:

I have to re-create many of the high school pages to get us up and running before the kids come back on Tuesday.

All together now... "Poor Nancy."   :-)

Nancy,

That really is tough. I never worked in schools, but I know that any system changes at the last minute are very frustrating. We have one high school here that has made the state news because when school started almost all of the students still didn't have schedules. The students wandered the halls and hung out in the cafeteria or just left. The administration promises now that they will all have correct schedules on Tuesday, which is three weeks after school started. At the school board meeting this week, there were so many angry parents that they had an overflow room where the proceedings were put on a TV screen, and they had to limit the parents comments to one minute each.

I guess my point is, it could always be worse. The school libraries were overwhelmed, which indicates that at least some of the kid wanted something to read, which is a good sign.

Marilyn B:

Diane,  before I met DH I had a lot of esteem problems from school.  DH believed I could do anything and 11 years ago I started post secondary education with a college course in library tech and now am doing my university online with only 8 credits left till I have a bachelor degree which is something I never thought I was smart enough to do until I met Robert.  Now I believe I can do whatever I choose and it is a great feeling that I hope I pass along to the students.

Marilyn~I was very popular in school and had tons of friends and then met Grumpy at 18 years old. We were married at 20, I quit college and we moved north of Boston and I lost all my friends and he even estranged me from my family. But I am at fault, too b/c I let him. Around 35 I came into my own, had grown out of his box and finally got strong enough to call it quits. Turns out he was fooling around with one of our boating friends for 3 years.  I came out of that as a very different person and am stronger today for it. I went back to night school and almost got a BA but I didn't need it b/c I had a high paying business management job by then. I took an early retirement from that to start my own business. So the spunk is still there.

He couldn't distinguish the sense of humor. DH found the closed rose petal and has helped me to blossom again. I am very blessed.

Diane Morgan:
Well, in my defense, I have that thing where you call it two things and then once you have said it, I will never be able to say it right again. This came from my father. He did it all the time. My fav salad dressing is now known as Ceasy Creamer instead of Creamy Caesar. I said it once wrong and it will now be forever Ceasy Creamer. You should see when I go into a restaurant and try to talk to normal people. I like IBC root beer but I have always called IBCB cuz it sounds like it should be IBCB but when I order it outside they look at me like I have two heads.

diane,   it is all starting to make a crazy kind of  sense,  have i been spending too much time with you?   :  )   gini

I finished another SBS block but I'm not pleased with it so will be making another one later. I also worked on the blocks I made from the fall fabric swap, played in EQ7 and traced an embroidery design on fabric. This will my main "take to work" project for a while. I cut up and sorted some scraps and cut fabrics for my next DJ block. It was quite a productive night.

I'm in bed now hoping to go to sleep for at least two to three uninterrupted hours. I'm on call until tomorrow morning.

Diane,

You might think it's "goofy", but I think it's terrific!  I too like the colors you used.

You have a great day too!

Shari

Kelley

Your table runner is stunning.  Did the center blocks come preprinted or did you put a design on them?  They are gorgeous.
