Moving On

Baby deleted post I just wrote.

And I was going to say I miss her now that I am back at work.

Oh well, what I wrote probably wasn't good enough to publish and she just saved me from embarrassment.

And I do miss her. A lot. When I see her in the afternoon and evenings she wants me to hold her for hours. Literally. She yells her head off when I put her down. Which makes it hard to get anything done around the house AND my back hurts. But that's ok because she's only 10 months once. Before I know it she'll be a year and then two. So I am happy to hold her while she still wants to be held.


I'm getting off topic, though. In other news, the engineer and construction workers finished my classroom. Over Labor Day weekend. It looks beautiful, no holes in the ceiling or burst pipes sticking out of the floor! I am getting high off the fumes from the sealant they used to finish the floors. Even with all the windows open and 2 fans going. But I am really appreciative of all the hard work they did-I need to get them a present! Maybe I should give them the 2 Brittney Spears tickets my bro-in-law with Downs Syndrome won. (He's lucky like that).


Also, I am not feeling well. I have a sinus infection and finally went to the doctor today to get some meds. I feel yucky and achy and have been fighting it for a week. Now the drugs have to fight it for me.


Reading-wise I am having a hard time carving out time to finish anything. But I am trying. I read Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner. Not my favorite of hers ( a little too predictable) but a light read. I am reading The White Queen by Phillipa Gregory but I just started it so I can't say how good it is. It's historical fiction and if anyone likes that genre you are welcome to read it along with me. I have to finish it soon, it's due back at the library next week. I also can't verify how clean it is, although I don't think her books are too graphic or inappropriate. But that's a personal decision. I'm too tired to add links, so google the books if you want to know more.

That's the update for the week.

E, Great to see that you have a classroom again and in such a short time.
Sorry you have a sinus infection. You and Dad both - though the vinegar & honey concoction helped his sore throat. Must be the leaf or just plain mold in the air. Dad felt better Wed. but today (Thurs)nose & throat started again because we are supposed to get rain tonight.
Mina misses her Mom so much - thank goodness she's a featherweight if you have to keep holding her. Sorry this seems more like an e-mail than a comment. Try to get some rest!!

i just read "best Friends Forever." It was not a favorite of mine. I usually like her books but I found this one kind of boring.

I know you are probably too busy to read right now, but I just finished a great book - Farm City by Novella Carpenter - it's a memoir by a woman who has an urban farm of sorts in the middle of Oakland, CA..a really good read! Also, I don't remember if you read My Year of Living Biblically, by A.J. Jacobs- it's really good, too - and his new book is coming out this month, I think - it sounds good as well...I would try the Philippa Gregory you're reading but I just can't do historical fiction. Hope school is settling down and you're feeling better...oh and I just remembered, I read another great bio recently - it's called Mountain Upon Mountains, by Tracy Kidder - he's a great writer and it's a book about a doctor/public health expert who's done amazing work in Haiti and all over the world - I really liked it! Now I want to read everything else he's written...

ok, this is embarrassing - i think i misquoted the title of of one of the books - it's Mountains Beyond Mountains...although i'm sure you would have figured it out...
