    A friend of mine has to have regular breast lump biopsies and they always come back negative, and her doctor said a lot really just show up and do nothing in most people. Prayers she gets the good relief-news soon.
    800 days is amazing, and I cannot wait to celebrate the big 1000!

    We have St. Nicholas day where I am from in November, where kids sing Christmas songs and go from house to house and get candy. Love our old traditions, and I understand it is a bit frustrating to see “your people” wanting to import something as huge as a holiday, because that seems a bit forced or artificial eh. oxoxoxox Sorry to hear about the…[Read more]

    This…is GOLD….”But I fast forward and realise it’s not the glamorous one glass of wine with dinner. Its the bottle then another. I just can’t have one, I’ve accepted this and once you accept it.” Amen to that. oxoxoxo

    Sorry your post got lost…that’s always a frustrating moment….oxoxoxox Been there, done that.
    And thanks for taking the time to write up a second one…I really enjoyed reading your post this morning over my coffee here (USA) and so much of what you said is relateable. Like the going NC with toxic people…I feel it happens kind of naturally…[Read more]

    Hoping your hubby is ok and back on his feet in no time! That must have been scary for both of you. 🙁 oxoxoxox
    Be extra kind with yourself…..even if you did not stop yesterday or today, that’s ok and how it is then. When you know, you know. I get it. There were times in my life when things were so stressful I doubt I would have had the strength…[Read more]

    Nom nom nom…..I need like a personal assistant who is an AF barista and mixes up good concoctions like that when the usual restaurants disappoint with sugary soda and water and coffee as their only options.

    • I have been known to take it with me 🙂 🙂 It is a big brew – I stuff in many teabags and loose chamomile, oat straw, green jasmine, red in the top diffuser thingy, then do two lots of boiling water to really get all the benefit. Then add the ginger/tumeric boiled mix, so would last you weeks. Worth the effort. Unfortunately my acupuncturist said…[Read more]

    Morning coffee….and three weeks till spring break countdown….sanity shall be restored then!
    Thanks so much to everyone who commented on my student-diva experience….I read some of your comments right before I marched into that classroom, prepared with a 100% bullet-proof lesson plan…and she only tried a wee bit here and…[Read more]

    • @Mari135 I admire your enthusiasm and especially your patience. What a rude little bitch that Diva thing is. I’d have to record her dumb comments “Whats a noun?” and recommend to the Dean that she be retested for English while she may need remedial courses. She is, apparently, disrupting your class on purpose. Assigning a paper that pinpoints her…[Read more]

    • Ha, my girl loves Bordercontrol – I didnt know it was on Netflix
      Happy days hon. I have an opportunity to teach adults English for 3 months and would be in a complex with a great friend, BUT, she is sooooo negative, hates the students in the main, and I realised I couldn’t stand to be tied down to a strict schedule, 5 days a week, crossing our…[Read more]

    Morning coffee….and madness to-do list continues….nothing like the fall…but I also cannot afford to fall behind too much or else it will be the fall all over again….yikes…..But….As humans we tend to brush over the good things and focus in on the bad stuff, like the famous quote “the mind is like teflon for the…[Read more]

    • Wow. You have a lot of patience.

    • I think that’s why I could never be a teacher. You need the patience of a saint…kudos, @mari135!

    • Oh my goodness. What a drama queen you have on your hands! It sounds like you are handling her well. I’m going to remember the whole Teflon/Velcro thing and try to adjust my thought process accordingly today.

    • Wow you have the patience of a saint!
      Congrats on the fantastic exam results!!! What a superstar!!! ❤️

    • Wouldn’t you just love to tell how you really feel about her self centered, attention grabbing, narcissistic behavior! Ha I’d love to have court side seats! Good for you for keeping it professional and directing all future complaints to your boss. Let him have some fun! Have a lovely evening. Oh and congrats on that grade. Wow!
