Oh, I'm so sorry I missed the party! And I brought something for the gift exchange, too! Oh well, hope it helped cheer you up a bit, kt.

One half of a black eye. Actually she was fine. But the doctor said she couldn't be alone until tomorrow.

She was in a cab accident, hit the plexiglass thing between the driver and back seat. Two years ago.
Amazingly the cab only have $100,000 of insurance and you have to sue to get that. So if you are really hurt, you are out of luck.

Yes, I need a nap, so I dumped her!

Her significant other (we are still trying to figure out what would be easier about breaking up after 20 years, just because they aren't married) came back from the doctor. I was released!
Got some coffee. Canceled mom day until tomorrow. Now I can play on woot.
I should find the Christmas stuff in the attic. It is late enough to put it up.
Every year we say no, we are only putting up the tree....but then the week before Christmas we put everything up.

Big problem with s i l is she keeps all the shades down. First sunny day here in days and days and no light in the house.

What is with that? Why do some people like to keep the house really dark all the time?

Mr1, do you open the shades or do you stay in the dark?

When I bought my house in stl., the place had not only had shades and blinds down for year, the windows had been bolted shut. Screws in window and frame anchored l brackets so it was impossible to open them until I had removed the hardware. They also had placed a massive entertainment center in dining room, no dining table, and ate watching tv. When I was looking at the house, a colored light prompted me to look behind the entertainment center, and there was a set of beautiful stained glass windows. They were one of the selling features for me.

Ms. Name,
I like to open the shades. Mrs. 1 likes fluorescent lighting.

fluorescent lights give me migraines . My eyes detect the flicker. That said we have almost no windows except daughter who has a bay window for a wall, so our house it too dark for houseplants which are ssnort!y dying. used to have a bright place, but I've also rented a basement.

same. . .I wish it wasn't. They aren't as bad and actually I can tolerate full spectrum florescents for a while (use them in the kitchen) I can also see the refresh rate on monitors, that gives me ocular migraines, but those are slightly different and usually involve loosing eyesight for few hours. Look at me I am falling apart!

I found this pdf file that says something called a Robinspring 32 light might help:
The Effects of Fluorescent Light On The Ocular Health Of Persons With Pre-Existing Eye Pathologies

On the National Association for Visually Handicapped web page, they list a phone number for a free 30-day trial of the Robinspring 32: 30-Day Trial

I hope this helps!

some things are good. baby seems fine. wife got my cold and is not as sick as I am.

Other things will just take time. Been a hard semester for me, part of the reason I am so sick now. I am looking forward to two weeks off to get my head on straight, do work around the house, and get on top of the curriculum.

Perhaps if you emailed, IMed or called me, you'd be more in the "know." Heh.

Hopefully you will both weather it out quickly. Maybe you won't have school on Friday with the snow. I can understand how some groups/classes are more challenging than others. (At least you didn't have a student run away to be a carnival worker!)

Two weeks...ahhhhh....sounds great! Next year I hope to be in a place where I can take off for that length of time...hopefully with some handsome stud on my arm. ;)

two weeks lets me catch up on evenings and weekends that were missed due to work. I also have to write student recommendations for secondary schools during that time, too. It'll be hard work but at a different rhythm.

You know...

I didn't get that until I replied...

I saw the nuts and bolts...and I thought...hmmm...how...provocative.

And then I saw the horses as a nurturing thing...like father and child or mother and child.

Weird how patterns of thought can be WAY off!
