Thanks
 

Thanks, everybody, for the thoughts, messages and condolences. I've passed them on to the rest of the family as well.

Funeral is next Tuesday.

The Week Begins
 

Monday goes by fairly smoothly. Only 4 more days 'til the weekend. Tamara had a decent first day, unfortunately more paperwork came home with her. We will tackle some of that tonight.

Enjoy those updates.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Ugh
 

New jobs start with a lot of paperwork. That's what I've done this weekend...paperwork.

Tomorrow I'll get to meet my student. And learn all about this new school. It should be interesting and very nerve-wracking until I get used to things.

Wish me luck.

Beautiful
 

The sun has been out all day. Nice and warm but you can almost feel how it is not as hot and Fall is just around the corner. Few more days of Summer trying to hold out with Fall winning and the cold gray is on our doorstep.

Hope you enjoy the updates and remember you have something to share you let us know.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Change
 

Today was my last one working for the Shoreline School District. I'm going to miss working for Shoreline. It's a great school district. I'm leaving an excellent special education program and a wonderful student.

But on the bright side, Monday I start my new job with Seattle Public Schools. I'm looking forward to seeing new programs and approaches. It will also be interesting to see how a much larger school district functions. I'll miss a lot of folks in the Shoreline district but I'm ready for a new challenge.

Pooped
 

It was a long day. Hoping to hit the hay early. Maybe I will be more chatty this weekend. Until then have a good evening and enjoy your Friday.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Now this bell tolling softly for another...
 

Thank you everybody for the good thoughts & prayers...

Unfortunately he deteriorated during the night. They took him off the ventilator at lunchtime and he was gone by quarter-to-one this afternoon.

He was 47.

Goodnight and may your God/s go with you and keep you safe.

Family Issues
 

My cousin's (the one I share a house with) younger brother collapsed a week ago, suffering from a sub-arachnoid haematoma. He was rushed to hospital. They put him into an induced coma, hoping to relieve the pressure so that they could then operate & put a drain in. The pressure has not decreased.

Because of the haematoma, and a second bleed he suffered before being put into the coma, he has massive brain damage - the sort where he'll have to re-learn how to walk and talk. And he will have memory problems - far worse than mine. If he survives.

He has a 30% chance of surviving.

She's keeping positive for his kids (he has four) and I'm keeping positive for her. Any prayers & good thoughts you can send our way would be gratefully received.

Doctor Who
 

So I've slowly been watching the new Doctor Who episodes. I'm currently at the beginning of Season 4. I've never been too picky about who plays the Doctor. Tom Baker will always be my favorite but I don't start out each new incarnation despising the new guy playing him. David Tennant does an excellent job handling the frantic pace of your typical Doctor Who episode.

Season four introduced someone who is turning out to be my favorite new series companion so far...Donna. The new series started off on the wrong foot when they had two companions in a row fall in love with The Doctor. Not that I didn't like Rose and Martha. Donna, however, can make me laugh out loud. That's what I like in a companion...pluck and a smartass attitude. If Donna ends up falling for The Doctor as well, please don't tell me.

Weekend End
 

Back to the work week we head. We had a nice day today...took the kids and dog to Greenlake and walked around it while the kids rode a paddleboat on the lake. Pretty good day all around.

On another note keep sending good thoughts to Ze and her family as things are not going great (see her Tuesday post).

Enjoy updates.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Bah!
 

I really wanted to sleep in today. What did I do instead? I woke up at 5:20...earlier even than I have to get up during the week for work. I gave up around 6:30 and stayed awake. Yuck.

E and I ran a few errands today. The kids enjoyed time relaxing in their rooms. More of the same tomorrow and then back to another week of work.

Decent sized update for y'all tonight. Yippee!

End of the Week Wrap Up
 

Made it through work with lots to get done next week. Tamara made it through her first week back, safely. Kids have a bit of homework but not overwhelmed and this weekend the heavy sun will return. It may be time to visit a park this weekend.

Once again not a ton to read, but Ze should return Tuesday.

Have a great one.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Ready, set, go!
 

After tomorrow the kids and I will have completed three whole days of the new school. So far things have gone well for all of us. Positive thoughts for next week when the kids in my class traditionally have more issues.

I'll let you get to reading.

Apologies
 

Got a bit of a family crisis. I've done the update but I really can't do the chatty bit tonight.

Take care. Stay safe.

Goodnight and may your God/s go with you.
