1-My brother and his family came down from NC on the way to the Fl Keys for Sara's brother's wedding. They came in on Mon. night and left Thurs. afternoon. We had our 'Thanksgiving' meal on Tuesday with mom. That was good cuz we are going to Tx for Thanksgiving and I was feeling a bit guilty about leaving Mom. And we didn't have turkey (mom hates turkey). Just some good ole fashion 'puertorican food'. Pork, yellow rice, black beans, and FLAN!!
They came by work on the way out to say goodbye. That's good, cuz I hadn't taken any pics of them yet...
2-There was a Thanksgiving Banquet at church last night for the Seniors citizens and Fred and I volunteered to help. We were in charge of serving 2 tables, and whatever else was needed. There were over 500 seniors there. I was very impressed with how organized it all was. People were working their butts off! I had a blast! I am still struggling with leaving events before all the clean up is done. If Fred hadn't been with me, I would have stayed longer. But he kept saying that the folks in charge knew what they were doing (which they did) and they told him to go. Of course they send the volunteers home... that's what you do. But there was so much more we could have helped out with... :( I think I am going to contact whoever is in charge of the 'kitchen crew' and see if I can be part of it. They do a lot of functions.
3-For some reason, my verizon email has been blocking emails from yahoo accounts. I first found out when the Councils were sending me emails and I never got them. Then, the lady in charge of the MAC (gym at church) volunteers told me last night she had emailed my schedule for Nov. I never got it and so I have been AWOL from my duties all this month! I felt so bad!
Well, my 'super hubby' figured out the problem and fixed it. yeah!
4-Stephany is taking criminology classes at school and one of the assignments was to do a 'ride along' with a policeman. She had on Thursday until 3am. She texted me around 10pm and says: so far we have chased drug dealers, arrested people and baker acted someone.
Yeah, that helped me sleep that night! I had her call me when she got home. Haven't really had a chance to ask her details, but I bet she has some interesting stories.
5-One of the kids in my class had a bad day yesterday. He has a cold so his mom gave him some cough syrup before school. Apparently that and the medication he is already on didn't mix well and he had a reaction... he became paranoid and scared of hair. He told me he was scared of mine. Well, he has a thing about curls anyway and my hair was 'unusually' curly that morning. So I calmly talked with him and had him touch my hair and told him I wouldn't let it hurt him... he seemed to be ok. But at lunch, he was sure his own hair was going to hurt him and asked me to cut his hair off. It was so sad. We called his mom and told her about it. He went home and we got a report later that he was better. Please keep him in your prayers. He has some real needs.
6- Just got a call from Becky. We haven't played dominoes in months and she was calling to see if we could come over tonight. Yeah!!!
7-The "great american teach-in" is next Wednesday. Fred is coming with his radios. (he did that last year) and Andy will be coming to have a soccer presentation with a friend of his. So, There will be 3 Nassars at Yates Elementary next week. yeah!
8-ok, I think I am done with randomness... you are all caught up!!
