Golden Solo Years

One of the low sides of living here in undisclosed is that we’re with a lot of older folks. A woman I knew since we have been down here 9 years ago passed away and left behind her husband of 62 years. She was from the Coal Country of Pennsylvania, was also Polish,like me, and we got along pretty well.

After this, and seeing Barbara Bush leaving behind President Bush, I can only help but wonder. I know a lot of folks, in fact, who are my best friends and got divorced. How do these couples last as long as they did. Oh, I know, you can recite chapter and verse, and I get that. Still 60+ years is a long time.It’s got to be a scary situation when, all of a sudden, you are alone.

God bless them!

Kicking Back **just a little**

Three days that felt forever…

I had to write up a student for discipline issues. It was the first time I ever had to do that and it bothered me for a few minutes.

Funny how that feeling passed right over me.

I think I am taking to 4th graders like a duck to water. Physically, I come home and I am in bed by 8:30 pm or 9:00pm. It’s probably because I am now constantly moving. When I am with the students, mentally I feel refreshed, if that is possible. It’s as if they realize that I am there to help them. It is nice to feel them appreciate me.

There’s one problem, though.

Monday comes around really quick.
