This M.E. Monday I am out of town visiting my best friend in Asheville, North Carolina. We reared our children across the street from one another and our families were so totally a part of one another that we were basically one extended family. Since I will be there through Tuesday night and on the road driving back to VA on Wednesday, I’m having to get my post ready ahead of time. School and work begin on the 16th so I thought I’d show you that I am M.E. ready to go back to my closet space and my little darlings who are sent to me for in-school suspension...my room was originally a closet with no windows and a solid wood door without any glass in it s that is why I call it “the closet!" As you can see from the photo, I have my computer ready, my M.E. journal where I document everything that happens in my room, my M.E.coffee cup telling me NOT to forget my batteries, and my M.E. little girly child’s hatbox bag which holds my classical cd’s I play all day, everyday, for the entire year. The students actually get to where they like it, and if I don’t have the cd player on, they will ask me to turn it on. They quickly learn there is music other than rap, hard rock, and country. I love it!!! Guess I am ready to hit the road for another 180 days. Never in my wildest dreams would I ever have thought I’d still be going to school and work at 71! AMAZING!!!!! The odd part is I am actually looking forward to it. The more time I am busy, the less time I have to think about my aches and pains and getting old. Work for me is a blessing!
P.S.I did make it to Asheville safely, and Weezie and I are having the MOST wonderful time together. It is just like we had never moved away from each other some 31 years ago.
