My Weekend

Saturday, a friend went with me to Canton to the car show (old cars), so she could stand in line with me for over 2 hours and then talk to John Schneider. I got his autograph and my pic taken with me. There was also a General Lee there, and had my pic taken standing next to it as well.

Sunday, mom and I went up to Summit Mall, because the Cleveland Indians were on tour there. We didn't get there til about 2 pm. I did get Tony Sipp's autograph and my pic taken with him. I didn't get Sin Soo Choo's or Matt LaPorta, because the current players left around 3 pm, and I was still in line a long way to go. I did see Sin Soo Choo leave, I also saw the manager, Manny Acta. I did my pic taken with Mike Hargrove and Len Barker. I got their autographs and Lou Charbonou's as well.

To Graduate or not to Graduate, That is the Question?

Around December 13, I got an email saying what I still needed to do in order to graduate in May with my Master's degree. I emailed back asking questions and trying to get hold of my advisor. At first I was told that I didn't have to do Comps (a major test), now it sounds like I have to. Still not sure if I still have to take another science class or not. I got in touch with my advisor this week, but still not sure about the class or not. Will soon find out if the one class is being funded or not, if not, then I have to see about taking another geology class or two this summer. If so, that means no traveling this summer.

Next Friday, February 4, I can go and pick up my questions for Comps. I do not want to do comps. I will use my personal day for doing Comps.

Graduation will be in May or December of this year. I was hoping for May.

I Hate Scares!

I was driving to see my brother Saturday morning and was thinking, and it hit me, this is my third scare in a year, in thinking my cancer might be back. I never thought about cancer before I was diagnosed, and now I do think about it more. The waiting part is the worse. God knows why He is allowing me to go through this.

Today's Physical

This morning, I had my yearly physical. I had blood drawn over Christmas break, since I had to do the 12 hour fast before hand. As of Wednesday, they hadn't received the results, so I called over to the cancer center and they faxed it to them. I also had to give them a urine sample. Doctor said there was some blood in it. He also did the pap smear. The female exam is my least favorite part of my physical. He did find a polyp on my cervix (I think that is where he said it is). After he gets the results back from the lab, he will schedule an appointment with a GYN and he will remove the polyp. Praying that it is benign.

18 Years Ago

18 years ago today, at 5:15 pm, Grandpa Sanyo died. He died at home. My parents were there. He died three days after turning 93 years old. I was in MI at college. I was at work Sunday night, and when Mom called me the next morning to tell me that Grandpa died, I had a feeling that is why she was calling me.

Seems hard to believe that he has been gone 18 years. I still miss him, but do know that some day I will see him in Heaven.

Mid-Term Fustrations

There are two weeks left of the grading period/semester. Where I am teaching, sixth grade is consider middle school, but we are at the elementary school. My kids have to take mid-terms next week. Here is the problem, we have not received them yet. We do not make up our own mid-terms. They are being made-up for us. I would like to write up a study guide for our kids, so they know what to study for this mid-term. This grade is supposed to be on their report card. We haven't even covered everything for the grading period in all of the subjects.

Yesterday, we received the first grading period assessments for language arts. We were supposed to give that test back at the end of October, but never received it. To top it off, they kept telling us, do not worry about health until the second grading period. But they never gave us any direction about it. We are now at the end of the grading period and have to do something for health.

Pure Frustration!!!
