I See (said the blind man)

Just a little sick humor there...Tom was not actually blind, but the PRK surgery went very well indeed and he was seeing better a few hours post-op than before he went in, which is fabulous!!! It's only going to get better. Sara spent the night last night and it was so fun just having her at home. We laughed and joked and made fun of each other...just like old times! Jo loved having Sissy there, especially when she made a bowl of popcorn after we went to bed. Sara has always loved popcorn...even as a toddler. We would wait til she was asleep and then I would take the air popper out on the front porch to make it so the noise wouldn't wake her up. Somehow she still knew. This little voice would come from the crib..."Pocco??? Pocco????" I let Jo out of the bedroom to go bother Sissy. When I returned to bed I heard Tom say "Pocco???" It's those little memories that are so special. I didn't sleep well. I have been contemplating a job change. I have another job secured already that will pay a lot more and will be more challenging. It would be working for a good friend who I really miss, but I do love my students too. Change is difficult...I need to spend some time thinking, praying and talking with Tom before I make the final decision.

I understand what you mean about missing your students. After retiring from a 32 year teaching stint, I missed it so much that I've gone back part time. I missed my friends and the kids, but it's not the same. I don't know if I'll do this again next year even if it is funded. I will pray for you that you make the right decision. How hard!

That's great to hear about the PRK. And popcorn? The Popcorn Fairy comes to our house every Saturday night LOL. My DH doesn't particularly care for popcorn, but I love it and so do my kids. And so do my siblings, and my parents...genetic! Definitely a dominant gene.

For the past couple of years, I have made dresses for Project Dress a Girl Around the World, in part thanks to the campaign launched by Mari...
