The foreign language public school teacher came out and shook my hand today when Cody hopped in the car after his class. She praised his efforts, and I could tell that she was proud of him as a student, despite some earlier difficulties. I'm proud too which is why I'm unabashedly sharing! He received a B+ for his class grade. Yeah!

My daughter's grandmother died earlier this morning of the cancer. It's all sad. I'm glad that I was able to say goodbye to her. My daughter is naturally extremely sad.

The elections ... wow! They're over. A calm is settling. The old pattern of change in the House and Senate happened during a president's second term. We'll see. Missouri here surprised me with its vote on several issues. Cody had thousands of political questions as we went to the polls, lit a candle yesterday for God's favor, and followed the coverage. All learning experiences.

I'm wresting with a huge country ham for a bookclub dinner tomorrow evening here at my home. I have a thousand things to do before approximately 16 women come over. Must stop blogging then!

I am a friend of Lazy Susie...we may have met briefly at a scavenger hunt. At any rate, have discovered, and LOVE, your blog. I was disappointed, however, not to find a picture of you ham wrestling! It would have been quite a picture, I'm sure!!!

Hi Linda,
Friend of Lazie Susie (as if lazy!). Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I should've had the picture of myself hunched over that big country ham with a surly frown on my face. That's the way it was, I'm sure! I do remember you from the Scavenger hunt, I think.
I'll check out your blog too.
Take care,
Teri
