Catching Up in Just in Case

First, thank y’all for the sweet words on my last entry. We’ve found out that my former student was the passenger in a car that was hit head-on by a log truck that crossed the center line. The dr...

Can't Find Pollyanna in Just in Case

*I typed this entry up last night, but it apparently vanished. :( I’ve always been a person who tries to find the best in everyone and every situation. I truly believe, if given the chance, most ...

Good-bye and Hello in Just in Case

So it looks like I may have dealt a death blow to my old sturdy little mower after all. So, may parents generously funded the purchase of a new one. (Repayment rates are much easier to parents th...

Poor Stella in Just in Case

I’m a terrible kitty mom. I was later getting home that expected because I had to run by and get boxes of Total cereal for science tomorrow (the kids designed experiments to see if the iron in th...


I was mowing the yard (after weeks of rain, we have several days of sun!) I was mowing in an area that I have many times before. There’s the remnants of a landscape timber across the yard. It’s w...

Harvey and Fire Truck in Just in Case

Harvey is supposed to be paying a visit in the next 24 hours or so. We should really only get a glancing blow, nothing like what they’re getting in Texas. They’re saying around 8 inches in rain. ...


We actually had a sunny day today, with no rain (well, a shower popped up this evening), but it was sunny all day. It was also HOT. I was going to mow early, but the mower wouldn’t start. So I tr...

Rain...again in Just in Case

Around here it seems to be feast or famine. We are either going weeks without rain or like now - rain daily. Some days it’s heavy and storms, others it’s off an on showers. When it’s not raining ...


Actually, the projectile vomit occurred the day before day 1. Without getting too detailed on the info, I got trapped in a bathroom stall by a co-worker’s projectile stomach issues. I actually ha...

Almost There in Just in Case

I’m still not completely finished. I’m going up today to finish my library, which is the biggest job I have left, but it’s come a long way from that anxiety inducing view of everything piled in t...


I went school clothes shopping with my mom and Cbaby. I will say, shopping with Cbaby is so much easier than with Tootie. Cbaby is about getting it done. Tootie would shop in 10 store and then go...

Another Day in Just in Case

The work in my classroom continues. I’ve got pretty much everything put away, other than things that hang on the wall. It always takes time after painting to get those to stay on the wall. For th...

Ah, That's Better in Just in Case

The room certainly isn’t finished, but it’s better. It at least looks like a classroom! lol This one is from the same angle as the one yesterday: And just a couple of other views. You can see s...

And So it Begins! in Just in Case

We were able to get up to school today. (There was a parking lot full of us up there! lol) It’s always a lot of work to put the room back together, but it was even worse this year, because they p...

Photobucket in Just in Case

Well, I got the email this evening. I’m being blocked from “certain features” due to excessive 3rd party hosting. First of all, that’s a joke, lol. I don’t post tons of pictures, but I knew it wa...

Just a ramble in Just in Case

I was looking through some old entries to find the date of an event I knew I had written about. I never go back and read old entries, but this was about 2 years ago and I found myself strolling d...

Oops in Just in Case

For weeks my parents have been telling me that they wanted to come help me work in my yard. I put them off as long as I could. They both have health issues and with their age, it just bothers me ...

Just a ramble in Life

Summer is rolling along much too quickly. I’m at loose ends, because normally I’d be up in my room working, but they haven’t painted yet. The building will be closed next week while they work on ...

A Summer Day in Just in Case

It just hit me that my summer break is officially pretty much halfway over. It’s hard to believe that. I’ve hit my summer stride. I can’t keep up with what day of the week it is and my sleeping p...


I’ve gotten some wind and rain, but Cindy came in a little further east than they originally thought. That put most of central Louisiana (where I am) the window of being far enough away to miss ...

And so it starts in Just in Case

We’re just a few weeks on to hurricane season and we’re already preparing for a storm. It’s not organized enough to be a tropical storm or hurricane, but it’s packing a lot of wind and rain, We’...

Sad Good-bye in Just in Case

Bear, the sweet little tri-pod pup that adopted my parents has vanished. Before we left for our trip, my parents noticed him acting a little differently, not eating as much, coughing some. I’ve s...

The wifi has returned. Of course there’s a cable guy coming between 10 and noon tomorrow to work on it. lol I won’t cancel it yet. I’ll wait until closer to time, and if it’s still working, I’ll ...


I’ve been without Wi-Fi for a week. I thought it was just the weather, but it’s not. I tried to get them to come out yesterday, but they couldn’t. I’m going to be out of town for a few days with...
