Yes, I'm Still Alive!

Hi Everyone!

Yes, I'm still alive. I know, I know, I'm not sure why I'm not posting on this blog? I don't think it is "nothing to say" so then??? We'll just have to see I guess.

Well, Summer is totally over with Labor Day Weekend gone. We are heading into our 4th week of classes. I taught 3 classes this summer & then had about 2 weeks off. I needed more! Lots going on at work. New president so that is a wait & see how things change or don't? We are going into a negotiation year so that is always fun! HA! Turmoil everywhere with the country & jobs & no different with us. We have 450 more students on campus than we normally do. We have no parking!!! They have them parking along the side streets & in the grass. Incredible. All our sections closed, and I don't know the last time that happened and this is my 14th year. Lots of students saying they rather go cheaper rather than go to a University right away. Alot of people out of jobs also going back to school.

Today was a bummer. I stopped for a red light, what I thought, and someone rear ended me. He says it was green. You know "red" and "green" is quite different? I can see him saying it was yellow & just turned or something on whether you think a driver in front of you may stop or go through but??? I don't know happend fast. I saw him in my rear view mirror & saw that he was not going to stop without hitting me so I tried to go a bit further but he still hit me. The cop said still there is no violation even stopping on a green. I said, "I know, what if I had to stop fast for an animal or a kid on a bike etc?" and he said, "Yes, I'll be having a discussion with him about safe distance to stop etc." Not too much damage on my car but enough that I am going to take it in to be fixed up. Ugh. My baby will be 2 yrs old in Dec so I am not happy about that. He had more damage small Nisson but just a bit more, no major smashing in etc. No one hurt & that is what is most important.

Been quite sad everything happening lately with our country...assumptions and so much hate going around. Pastors even saying he doesn't consider someone killing the president murder & wishing one of God's children Cancer. Ugh!!! Very sad.

Hey...did you all see the new Sean Connery Ad for Louis Vuitton? OMG!!! YUM! Now, I'm not thrilled with some of his macho attitude being nasty toward women in the past but I must say next to Pierce he is my next favorite Bond. Does he come with the bag, because I've never even thought of getting one but if that was the deal I just might! HA!

Lets see what back is ?? Better. Certainly better than May but last couple of days my right hip & between my shoulder blades has been acting up. My toe is still broken, 11 weeks! I go back next Fri. He is still taping it up. He said I need to stay off it but if it doesn't hurt I'm on the go.

My cousin is due to have a baby in the next week. I saw her last weekend & she looks very good & was 1-2 cm already. I'm very excited for her & to have another member of our family & a baby around again. My one niece is 18 yrs old & the other 12 now! UGH!

The temps are going down already, we are seeing 70s for highs and the trees have been turning colors & dropping leaves already. UGH!!! I don't mind a long fall but I hope we don't have a nasty cold winter.

Well that is it for now but I'll try to post again soon.

Welcome back! Sorry to hear about your fender-bender. Glad that you didn't hurt your back, further. I'm with you about Sean. That guy is so dreamy, and I love his accent. :::melt:::
