Thanksgiving Day


Happy Turkey Day!

Here we are at the end of Thanksgiving 2007!

What am I thankful for?

There are so many things for me to be thankful for. I have a good home with a great family I have some really good friends. Last month I got to catch up with friends from high school and that was a highlight of the trip. I also got to see some of my family that I hadn’t seen in a really long time.

What are you thankful for?

And yes, I had turkey! Sorry bird!

Thanksgiving Week

Normally this week at work is a quiet one, unfortunately with the Eiro Project, I don’t think that’s going to happen.

Tim finished school at noon today and is done until next Monday. Mark has to go to school until Wednesday. The joy of having kids in two different school districts.

There was one very bright spot in today. My good friend, Ken, from Colorado was in town for Thanksgiving. It was really good to see him. He makes me laugh. It’s nice to have friends that you can pick up just where you left off the last time you saw them.

TGIF – Almost


Well, here it is Thursday night. Watching CSI, which is one of my favorite shows. Tonight is suppose to be the last episode with Sara Sidle in it, and all I can say is YIPPEE! Just not crazy about the character so she can’t be gone soon enough.

The end of the week has been better than the beginning. Still busy but I haven’t felt beat on. Big bonus!

Tomorrow should be a good day. No teaching and only one “one on one” meetings and lunch with a good friend.

Another Day another Gray Hair

Today was one of those days I wish I could have stayed in bed!

There was at least one positive that came out of today. I think I helped some people learn a new tool that would make their jobs easier. Though, I think I confused a few too. 🙁

Part of my problem is self-inflected too many days in a row teaching. I love doing training, but too many in a row without a break makes me cranky. Plus I don’t understand why people can’t just get along. Or why some people have to play games and do things to make others look bad.

Tomorrow’s another day another class and another gray hair.

Change in philosphy

Ok, I guess I’ve decided it’s time to really use this as it is designed to be, a place to share my thoughts, feelings, and what’s happening in the world of the Magnuson’s.

Overall, this has been a quiet weekend. Mark and Tim bowled on Saturday. Then Mark had his football game. He is still trying to figure out the game of football. It amazes me how “unaggressive” he is. (Especially after watching him today!) Then the little goof ball was messing around on the bench with another kid and they both got benched for the rest of the game. I made him apologize to the coach after the game. Hopefully, he’ll figure out that he shouldn’t mess around during the game.

I worked bingo Saturday night at the high school to earn $100 bucks for Tim’s band account. It sounds like we’re going to San Diego for band tour. Looks like it will be about $500 for the trip. Which is better than last year’s $1100, but still a lot. With last night’s bingo I’ll have $309 on Tim’s account. YIPPEE.

Today we did something that I’m not sure we’ve done since we’ve been at San Dimas. We didn’t go to church. I slept until almost 11:30. It felt good! What got me up, was a text message from a good friend, Jacob. It was actually an IM that rolled over to my phone. He was letting me know that he and his wife just had their third daughter a couple of weeks ago. The funny part is about 2 weeks ago I thought about calling him, but I was afraid the cell phone number I had for him wasn’t good any longer.

Well, we’ll see how good I do at this. It’s really all Heidi’s fault. So she better read this and comment!
