I have 2 students today. 1 is brand new to me! I am very excited about that. It shall be interesting. I always enjoy teaching and am thrilled to pieces that I have 2 new students starting this week.
Tillie and Maia went home. They were here today and yesterday. I don't have any plans for them to come back as right now I am doing alright and can handle being alone. I am getting used to the solitude of the house. I have even enjoyed some TV stuff which is a first for me in several months as I was so worried about the little lady. I really enjoyed the comments on her pictures and her story. I miss her a lot, but that is to be expected. The pain is not always gut wrenching like it was. Sometimes it still is, but overall, I am slowly, very slowly, healing. I think I will miss her forever, but I am trying to keep busy so I don't think about her all the time.
Today was the first day I went to the music store without Mom. She was so proud that I taught music. She would get so mad when people would ask when was I going to get a real job. She would answer, she has a real job in a very stern tone. She got so annoyed by people thinking I didn't have a real job. Well, teaching is a real job!
I am not, however, looking forward to the holidays as of yet. I do hope to get into the swing of things when they arrive. I am going to put up our little tree on the princess table in the living room and that probably is about it. I don't want to go all out like I had originally planned. We all know why but I do want something Christmasy out because not celebrating Jesus' birthday is not good. Why should he be ignored because Momma is with him? I mean, how cool for her, she gets to celebrate his birthday with him. I just wished she was here with me.
Not much happening this week except for 2 new students and my current students. I plan to apply for a job today online. I hope I get an interview. It is the place Phoebe works and it sounds fun. I am not looking for a new career right now, but something part time would help pay the bills and keep my disability so that is what is important. My limited mobility shouldn't be a problem as it is a sit down at the phones all day job. I probably won't want to talk on the phone when I get home though! That is what happened when I worked at a call center before. At least this will be a permanent type job not seasonal like the other.
Anyways, here is a picture of me and mom when I was at Kathy's wedding. It was one of the best days of my life. I think I was more excited than she was at this point. She was so tired after months of planning. I was so happy and excited about her wedding. The other great days were the birth of my niece and nephew and Kathy's children's birth. Graduation rates up there too.
I was thrilled to be one of the maid of honors. Her friend, Karen, and I shared the honor. It was such an awesome evening. Doesn't Mom look simply gorgeous???? I think so. I look pretty good too. I can clean up well. I still have the dress. Doesn't fit me anymore, but I still have it. This was in November of 1996.
I do hope this finds you doing well and having a great day! I am having a good one, can't say great, but overall, it is pretty good.
