I would imagine online is difficult at the lower elementary level and special ed is a whole different ballgame!

Yep! It is great for in the classroom but hugely difficult online with my students. I only know about one student so far and he is nonverbal. This is going to be tough. I keep telling myself that someone will give me guidance and if not, I attended some webinars about early childhood special education using a coaching approach. I may try that if the parents are receptive.

I am going to start my walking again tomorrow. When I returned from Vegas I had some awful blisters but they are gone so I need to get moving. I will go early so it isn't quite as hot out. I hope you enjoy your zumba!

Krys- yes, I am taking cholesterol meds. I just need to get back to eating more healthy. I was doing so much better before the lock down and now all I do is sit around and eat and stress. I need to pull it together.

I have lots of errands to run today.

Hi Krys , The physical was great. Of course she told me I need to lose weight and my bad cholesterol was a little higher than it should be but still better than last time. Everything was good. Thanks for asking. emoticon

Scarlet - no canning, just freezing. I cut them up and do a flash freeze for 90 minutes, put them in zip lock bags and back they go in the freezer. The flash freeze helps keep them separated so they aren't a big block.

Nancy - good for you in getting all that stuff done. It does seem like furniture that was useful back in the day can become a space hog. I'm sure you'll like your new recliners.

Making real progress on the decluttering. Dining room, kitchen, and now the "study/computer room. As you enter through the front door, Ed has his computer brain center set up. We are getting rid of our 15 year old sectional that is HUGE. It is in that room - when I say HUGE, it has both a recliner and a hide-a-bed, is 9 feet long and wraps around taking up 2 walls. When we got it, we had frequent dinner parties, weekend visitors, and groups of people coming over regularly. Now most of those people are dead, moved away, or getting too old for travel. Ed and I go to them instead of them coming to us. The sectional is in good shape but no longer meets our needs. Ed went to the local furniture store and selected a pair of recliners that will take up much less space. They will be delivered on Monday after and the store will pick up the sectional and donate it to a good cause.

Nancy from West Virginia - EST
With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

I went and had blood work in preparation of my physical. I also got groceries, played on my computer and watered flowers in the front yard. Tomorrow I will do some heavy cleaning downstairs. I also obsessed over news articles about returning to school.

Not before Labor Day although last I heard we teachers will start without kids on August 10 as originally planned. What exactly this means, we still don't know much. Our state has the latest designation as number one in rate of spread. The governor has already started to shut down bars, and such. He also put out a mandatory mask order. I will be surprised if we open in person for a while yet. My age, weight, BP, diabetes, asthma, etc. put me in a very high risk category. My students add to the risk since with special needs, they are themselves in a high risk category and are seriously likely to spread any terms since they don't understand mask wearing, put their hands and fingers into everything including bodily orifaces. I am very worried. I am not ruling out the possibility of retiring if I am not certain that I will be comfortable with how they open.

Wow! Sorry about the poison ivy. I have only had that once and it was so unpleasant! Love the way dogs enjoy the garden hose. Mine likes to jump up and try to bite the water.

Pulled a gazillion weeds in my back yard this morning before it got too hot.
Transplanted volunteer purslane from one overrun border to another.
Found another patch of poison ivy on my arm.
Played with my dog Isabelle by shooting her with the hose. She LOVES it.

Staying home and inside as much as possible and only going out for appointments, grocery shopping, taking the dogs out in the backyard, and walking the dogs or down to the mailbox and back.
