Out to lunch again!

Tuesday, July 31, 2007
I'm figuring out why I've gained a couple of pounds over the last few weeks....I've gone out to lunch almost every day these last couple of weeks!!! Today I went out to lunch with Karen, who just retired after being an elementary PE teaching for 35 years and Pat who retired from being an elementary school secretary a few years ago!! We went to the Olive Garden and had a great time. Pat had brand new pictures of her grandchildren, who are absolutely adorable. Pat was just diagnosed with breast cancer, after finding the lump herself. We went to lunch today because tomorrow she gets her port and she'll start chemo probably next week. She's determined that she will fight and win this battle! And with all of the support that she has from family and friends, I'm convinced she's right!
Other than working on a new scarf and making serious headway on my new book I'm reading, James Patterson's, "Step on a Crack" I've been pretty unproductive. I realize that it used to bother me when I was unproductive. M-m-m-m-m-m-m....that must mean I'm either getting used to not teaching, or I'm just getting old. I'm voting for "door number one!"

Thanks for reading.

I'd vote for door #1 too!! I know you probably miss teaching an awful lot, but look at all the things you are able to do now that you have your own time? And of course, if you aren't feeling well, you have that option of taking a day or two to rest and do nothing. But it sounds like you are having a great time with your friends and family lately, and I'm so happy for you!

I too will vote for door #1. I also have gotten very use to having my own time. I have to say I just love it.
Please tell your friend that I will be praying for her throughout her treatment. Sounds to me like she has a great attitude.
hugs, di
