|Last summer at the beach. Oh, how I love this man!|
1. My baby sister turns 50 one week from today. I remember the day she was born ... coming out of school and Aunt Virginia waiting to take Nancy and me to her house 'cause Mama was at home with our latest and greatest sister.
2. My hubby turns 62 in 10 days. Hard to believe we've been together 40 years next week. Our first day ... a trip to Sir Pizza ... was on March 17, 1974. It was our first night back at school after spring break, and he called to see if "anyone over there wanted to go eat pizza." Sissy and I took him up on his offer. Later that week we had our first day all by ourselves ... we went to Nashville for his birthday and had steak ... and been together ever since. I thank God for him every day.
3. My hubby also retires in 20 days. Bless his heart, he has worked hard for so many years ... started as a teenager on a farm hauling hay ... and he has earned his rest. We may be poor as church mice, but I suspect we'll survive. We always do, and God takes care of us in ways we never expect. Now when I say retire, he's still going to work part-time, as I do. But we'll have much more time together! And I'm hoping we'll be able to spend some of it at the beach!
4. Spring break is week after next for me. I'm working nearly every day next week and most of this week too. I'll be ready for a few days off. Today I had 7 full classes ... no breaks ... but they were good. I had to send my usual problem child to the office after numerous warnings and a final "If I have to correct you one more time, you're gone." Five minutes later he was on the way to the principal. Not sure he'll ever learn.
Still fighting this crud. My throat no longer is raw, but I have now developed a cough and I am so hoarse that it is ridiculous. Of course, talking all day prolly didn't help. But dinner out tonight with The Pap.
