Just popping in to say that I'm off on vacation. The whole family is heading for Japan in the morning and we'll be gone for two weeks. Everyone stay safe and well and I'll talk to you mid-April.

Love, Theo

Ah, now why'dya have to go and do that? Off having fun while the rest of us are Theo-deprived. It's callous I tell you! Plainly callous!

Just kidding. Hope you have a great time.

Have fun on your holidays!
Wish I was going on one. I'm still trying to decide whether to take Spring Break next week or wait till next month. We're thinking of heading to the mountians early this year since the 4th of July falls on Wednesday this year.

If the pollen in South Carolina is anything like it is here in Georgia this spring, head anywhere it has rained! I am seriously considering taking two weeks of Spring Break--which is one of the perks of homeschooling.

Have fun Theo! I'm off in about - 2 hours so I guess I'd better get my rear in gear and get off the internet. Have a lovely week, everyone.


And I love you, I love you, I love you.

Starling, I'm not going anywhere, either. Except to bed in a few hours. I feel left out.

I am so exhausted and feeling blah. I didn't get to sleep till about 4:00a.m. and then had to be up at 6:30a.m. for work. My eyes and head hurt, but it's only 8:40p.m. and too early to go to bed. I've been having trouble sleeping off and on for the past few weeks. I usually get this way every July, but for some reason it's happening in March. It comes for a few weeks, then is gone and I have no trouble sleeping. I just get these weird bouts of insomnia. I think it's this early Daylight Savings change that's messing me up. I'm off my regular sleeping schedule and can't get back on. The days that I don't have to teach I tend to sleep in late to make up for the days I'm not sleeping. I think I just need a good stiff drink and a pillow.

Perhaps with AMC on holiday I can boost my number of posts. Wonder if I can catch her up...

I need tea. Didn't sleep well the last two nights. Woke up wide awake in the middle of the night (or rather early morning). Was NOT going to get out of bed at 5am, though, so forced myself back to sleep for a couple hours more.

Oh boy! My beloved Ohio State Buckeyes are going to play for a national championship again ... this time in basketball. And ironically they're playing the Florida Gators again, just like in football when they lost spectacularly. *sigh* Florida is heavily favored, which actually might be a good thing, because the Buckeyes seem to perform better as the underdogs. In any case, they've had a great season. However, it will still smart if they lose two championship games to Florida in one year.

I'm kind of sorry that basketball season will be over, because my husband doesn't really follow baseball, and all that leaves him to watch is the Golf Channel (and NASCAR). The rest of us get awfully tired of the Golf Channel by the end of the summer ... not that we watch that much TV, but a little golf goes a long way! Don't get me started on NASCAR. I'm planning to take many long walks this summer.

We don't have the Golf Channel. My sister does, though, because she has digital cable, but we just have basic. Baseball season is a big deal in my family. The Pirates opener is tomorrow, but the home opener is later in the week.

I think I've developed allergies, either that or I can't get rid of this cold. I think it's a cold and a tiny bit allergies. I have been sniffling and sneezing for the past two weeks. I'm sick of it.

It's been in the 70s all week, but now we're getting a forcast of snow. I knew the snow wasn't gone. We usually have a light snow around Easter. No different this year.

Yuk, I hate going to the dentist. Unfortunately, I may have to if my wisdom tooth has anything to say about it. It has suddenly decided to come in-- upper left. I can feel it under the gum. Problem is, I don't have room for any more teeth. Needless to say, I'm looking forward to this visit less than any other visit.

It doesn't necessarily have to come through. I didn't have room for any more teeth, until I had to have two teeth pulled, and the wisdom teeth filled the gaps. I've still got two wisdom teeth underneath the surface, I can feel them, but they're not growing any further.

Daughter just came home from the dentist today and announced that she needs her wisdom teeth out because they are impacted. I think we'll wait until summer when she doesn't have school and band to deal with for several weeks. I had to have my wisdom teeth out when I was 39. It actually went OK, but it did hurt a good bit for a few days. But it wasn't nearly as bad as getting my tonsils out later that year.

I've had my wisdom teeth pulled when I was in college. They were inducing migraines so I had to get surgery. One tooth I know I need a root canal, but it's going to have to wait. It's not bothering me and I just don't have the money right now to get it fixed, but I do have a cavity that needs fixed. I just have bad teeth. I brush faithfully twice a day since I was little and I've had just about every tooth in my mouth filled. My brother never brushed and you had to yell at him to do so and never had a cavity and perfect teeth.

Getting my tonsils out was most painful thing I went through, even more so than the kidney stones. I was about 17 or 18 when I got them out and cried every night for two weeks, refused to eat, and lost about ten pounds. I'm greatful they're gone because I used to get sick all the time and afterward hardly ever, but if I knew how painful it would be beforehand I probably wouldn't have had them removed. I had a naturally enlarged right tonsil and when I'd get sick my throat would close off. My parents tried for years to get someone to take them out and nobody ever would. Finally I went to this Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist for an ear infection and he said they needed out. Thankfully it put a stop to the three times a year throat infections I used to get.

I've got bad teef too, Jo. They're nice and pearly white, but I've got fillings all over the place.

I'm glad I had my tonsils out when I was still quite little. I remember the pain, and I also remember having to eat ice cream when I didn't want to, but I don't think it lasted very long. My brother had his out at the same time, and he woke up during surgery. I remember him being wheeled in crying, with blood all over his pillow. Ouch.

Whew! That was a reading marathon! Twenty pages to be exact. That's what I get for not coming around for so long. I even had to sign in when I got here.

I thought of you today Jo when I was reading the want ads in the paper. Some one has a Jack russel terrier for sale for $100. And yes, the cat would definately win. When I was younger, we had my cat Cuddles and a family dog named Jasmine. Now, Jasmine had at least 20 pounds on Cuddles, and Cuddles kept Jasmine in a constant state of terror. Cuddles was a very friendly and lovable cat, she just didn't like Jasmine's attempts to "play".

I really need to get Squeaky into the vet. His seizures are becoming more frequent. He used to only have one or two every couple of months, now they're coming almost daily. The majority of them aren't bad; his body stiffens, he pants heavily, he gets a glazed look in his eyes and they last 2-3 minutes at most.

Dobbygirl, we had a kitty named Cuddles, too. But he was kind of odd, he lived in the pine tree in the driveway.

I woke up to snow today. I thought we were done with that. I don't know how much we're supposed to get. It's just barely covering the ground, but it's supposed to stay really cold until Tuesday. Yesterday morning it was in the 60s and dropped down to below 30 in one day. It was nicer with the 70 degree weather from the other day.

Great weather for gardening today. Only one major problem. There's oak pollen everywhere. I went outside and started sneezing, and sneezing, and sneezing-- well, you get the idea. Had to take some antihistamine. All we had was Benadryl liquid for kids-- cherry flavour. How revolting! At least I felt a little better. I traded actually sneezing my head off to feeling like I had already done so. Hate the way Benadryl makes me feel (even at a half dose) but it works and it was what we had. We need rain.

It's going to be colder here on Easter than it was at Christmas. How bizarre is that?

Census just published some things about U.S. cities and the Pittsburgh area, including where I live, has suffered the second highest population loss from 2000-2006. The number one city was New Orleans and that was because of Hurricane Katrina. We're just a depressed area. The reasoning was lack of jobs and high death rate due to amount of elderly in the area. At least we're not Philadelphia, which has the highest murder rate in the country. Isn't PA a great state!

I had a cat called Cuddles too! Obviously a sign of superior taste.

It's the loooooong weekend. Hooray! I'm a rubbish Catholic though - I can't remember if I'm supposed to restrict myself to three square meals today or if that's just Ash Wednesday. I wish I'd eaten a bigger breakfast, just in case.

I got a parking ticket. I'm so annoyed with myself, the local authorities, the traffic warden, my car - everyone and everything that is remotely connected with me now owing 40 that I cannot spare to the bloody council. I know it's my own fault, but 40 quid seems a bit excessive. I was only there for 20 minutes!

The traffic warden conned me last time. He put the ticket on my window, took a photo, and took it back off again. So when I came back, there was no ticket, which means I didn't pay it. Then I got a reminder, saying that since I ignored the ticket, I had to pay twice the amount. I contested it, but they had "proof" in the shape of that photograph. That ticket was NOT there, it would have been impossible to ignore (since they stick it in front of your nose on the windscreen).

We've decided to go to the dawn service at the Priory this Sunday, even though I'm not a Christian (which is weird, my grandparents were Mennonite and Roman Catholic respectively, but chose not to educate their kids in religion). Ruth is a Lutheran, but she's not terribly religious either. It's just good to remember a guy who got nailed to a tree because he told people to be nice to each other.

We have sunrise service on Easter. It's going to be 20 degrees and flurries. I don't know if I'm going yet. When I was little I'd go to church every Sunday except Easter because I didn't like getting up at 5:00a.m. to go to service.

Yay for all the Cuddles kitties. We've had so many cats during my lifetime. I can't even count the number of Tigers we've had.

It'll be cold in North Carolina as well. The temps will be in the 50's and 60's.

I've never had a cat named Cuddles. My first was named Bandit, and the current is named Romeo. After this, I can't have any more cats because I just found out I'm allergic to them.

What great taste you have Bee!

*sings* I'm dreaming of a white...Easter? Yes, we're having a White Easter this year. Strange weather. I had to go to the store and on the way home hit a white-out storm. Not much stayed on the ground, just a covering, but still, a white-out on Easter weekend? I thought it was April showers bring May flowers, not April snowstorms.
