I recently quit as President of the PTO ... and although the Secretary(for the PTO) keeps calling and asking questions-- I am so glad I quit. I have been instead, helping out with filing in two different classrooms-- and it feels so amazing to be in the midst of the kids-- and yet not weighed down by being there.-- When I was doing PTO stuff it was always about fund raising and promoting the school-- to get us anything that we could get. --- Now, I'm at the school to mentor the students and enjoy seeing them learn and show off their many skills. Ah, Joy!
I also had my 40 year appointment -- and I found out... I'm mostly normal! (shhh Patty don't tell me ANY different!) :) I don't have high cholesterol ,I don't have diabetes-- I am short on vitamin D-- and although my weight and blood pressure are high-- I am somewhat normal! :) I also got to experience my very first mammogram-- Ummm all the hype -- was for naught. It wasn't that bad, at all.
I am really learning that seeing things in a positive light is what makes them bearable-- I am trying too keep a positive view on everything in my life.
Both Shane and Jessica have been doing well, behaving~ and although I get annoyed when they leave their wet clothes on the floor... It is a pure treasure to hear them singing(Away in a Manger) to each other in the living room, while having a sleep over. -- Of course after about three verses I'm begging them to move on to another song. -- But still they happen to have a lovely way of interacting that gives me such Joy and Peace.
So...things here have been good... I hope to have the same comment about next week... Spring Break!
