I've been cleaning and organizing my house like a true Stepford. Today we are going to clear ceadar at the ranch. It's dirty, bloody difficult job, but it has to get done. The bobcat can't access the dead trees left by the loggers in the ravine. It's my favorite type of exercise. This is my last day off.
I have a novel unit workshop tmrw. Wait for it.... Then I must report back to work. New teacher orientation starts on Tues. Back to work I go. Hi ho. Maybe that's not a good greeting to use on my first day. Just keep it quiet Melinda. I need to be a librarian.
I love it when you tell your significant other why you are the way you are and they call you a liar, or say you're wrong. Not true. Ok.
I love it when you ask your mom for help and she says, Do not have anyone else that can help you. ok.
Or when your family member asks if you are excited about your new job, but start a new conversation about themselves before you can answer. Ok.
I loved it when today I texted my sis I love having you as a sister. You totally get me. And she responds. I always fear you give me too much credit.
Talked to mom. She says many of her friends shared her dancing videos, so it cld be on their page. She said she needs to come up with a hashtag bc you never know who might discover her. It shld read #dementiasoon #dementiaSymptoms Lol
My family is hilarious!!!! Facebook was made for my mom. She's been bombarding her page with videos of her dancing. No shame in the self adoration. It's driving my brother Rom nuts. He wants to create a new FB where his family can't embarrass him.
My brother Rick found some new online video game pyramid scheme. He has been texting all of us free sneak peek memberships. He's ate up. And believes he will make millions.
My sister is passionate about Hillary breaking the glass ceiling for women. While I admire this, it's hard for me to not see the racial division the dem are still causing. The constant reminder that this country is built on slavery and moms of men with long criminals records deserve the spot light.
Ron thinks Trump is the man. He like many of his misinformed supporters refuse to see past the manipulating bully of a man he is. The way they disregard fact and statistics and play on ppl's emotions. Like a reality show that you can't believe is actually reality.
So Marisa and Ron have been debating, if I can call it that; posting all kids of links to support their side. It's very entertaining.
I am happy to say and I am the most normal one in the litter. Yea Me!!!
Doc called this morning rescheduling my procedure to NEXT Friday!! YAYYYY I get to wait a whole extra week. No news is good news I suppose. BTW I've kicked Negative Nancy to the curb. Negativity triggers cancer. Her bad attitude is sickening!
When I told my sister I got the job at the school I wanted, she said I lived a charmed life. Everything I ever wanted I got. I was hurt by this bc I wanted to believe my skills, hard work and education awarded me the position. Is she serious? I didn't say anything to her. I held back bc I knew it was just her way. Yesterday, I looked up statistics about my possible future. I only found percentages of how long I would live past five years after diagnosis. Maybe it was just one bad website, but I stopped searching after that. It depends on what stage it is found. My dad found stage 4 can-cer. My life doesn't feel so charmed now and my thoughts are far from it. I am going to pray now bc it's all in God's hand.
I have a biopsy on Friday. Scared but praying for good news.
Tomorrow is our school "retreat". That means we socialize, mingle and bond ALL day. SIX hours of small talk. I meet the entire staff of new people all at once. UG. I'm not sure I'm ready for this.
What I want to know is why NO ONE believes me when I say I'm an introvert. Let me keep a tally of all the awkward socially unacceptable inappropriate too much TMI things I say all day. Really at 40 years of age surely I've learned to keep it to myself. I'm gonna go for the quiet intellectual mysterious type. Just smiles and little talking. See how that plays out. First impressions are so important. Good thing I already got the job.
Catalina and her cousin Marlowe agreed to both save their money, so they could buy a hover board together. I guess she couldn't hold out any longer. So funny! #SantaDoesntBringToysThatCatchFire
