On a more positive note....

Those of you who know me, know that I can't stay "un-smilie" for long. So, I'm trying to get back in the positive swing of things.

Last night was my dance class, the one with only 8 members and the fear of it getting canceled. Well, the school decided we could cut the number of classes from 12 to 10 so we can keep going. Then last night, TWO new ladies showed up for a trial lesson! And they did good.... we hope they come back.

Today is the fairwell party for "the Jerk". Next week is his last and after that, the atmosphere at work will hopefully get better. We shall see....

Tomorrow I have a duty (don't laugh, Sammi) trip. I invited my boss to join but I doubt he will.

I have a soar throat the past days and I'm hoping it doesn't get worse. If I call in sick at work, I also have to cancel dance classes, but of course, my health has priorities.

I need to once again pimp the blogging site keepconnectedlive (KCL). Matt is really doing an awesome job of making it more and more like our old JS. He is now adding stats/top ten; recent comments on the homepage; AND we can use our old JS templates to do layouts! I haven't had time to check that feature out yet, but I will soon! So please take time to try it. This place is nice, I admit, but I still miss a homepage and pm'ing possibilities.

So, I hope this entry makes up for the last sad ones I posted... but the shock of the shootings still hangs over the whole country here.



  1. I hope you feel better soon. I am glad that the jerk is leaving. I hope things get better at the office. As far moving to a new JS type of blogsite, I am not moving. Im done with JS, and I am quite content to stay on blogspot. I hope you have a good rest of the week. (((hugs)))

  2. There was a headline on the Weekly Reader: El Cajon, we're no more redneck than Encinitas, Chula Vista, or Oceanside.
    I thought it was funny. They had an old biker couple on the cover with the caption. They looked like fun people.
    Maybe I'll get a copy and scan the cover in. Thought you'd get a kick out of it.

  3. Let's class teacher, jerk leaving. I'd be willing to bet that Dorrie does THE HAPPY DANCE at the farewell party. Kind of an Irish jig, since next week is Saint Patty's Day? ;-) lol. Hope you get to feeling better soon. Everyone is still in shock over the shootings, and my entry wasn't pointing fingers at you, I was merely saying that there is so much bad stuff going on. Please don't hurt me. Ha. HUGS!

  4. I do so hope the work environment gets better for you.

    Start poppin the vitamin C.. and feel better soon!

  5. (((Westy))), I'm going to come back tomorrow and try to catch up with everyone. I'll check out KCL, maybe I can get motivated again. :)
    Take care and big hugs!

  6. I hope that things change for the positive now that the jerk is eaving. *Hugs* Thinking of you- I have really been out of touch lately.

  7. HOpe today is a better day!

  8. hug
    we all seem to be struggling but this seems more positive

  9. I hope everyday is easier and brighter for you. I will pray for it. *smiling* Kiss those beautiful grandbabies of yours- I know I am smooching on mine something fierce! *laughing*

    Take good care of you~ Gina
