looking back at the year and Thanksgiving!

I wish I would have done a better job blogging this year because it has been a not so good year for me.  However, I do feel like through the bad things that have happened I have seen the good or things have happened that are good because of the bad.  I know that may not make any sense, but I did want to write it down on my blog so I have a record of it.  I am feeling great because of the gallbladder surgery.  Even though it is hard to find any good from my dad's death I do take comfort in knowing he is not confused or sick anymore and is whole again in heaven. My job is so much fun this year and I was super scared to change buildings, but it has been a good experience.  I am working with teachers more my age and as silly as that sounds, it is hard being around young people all of the time in the sense of they are not going through the same things as you are.  These teachers are all at the same point in their life as me and we just understand each other.  It is nice and it helps me be more ok with my age and where I am in my life.  I do still get to be around young teachers, which I do enjoy, but it is nice to have teachers that understand me too.  There is not much going on new except we did have blood drawn from Mandy to send off to see what is going on with her legs.  I suspect degenerative myelopathy which would paralyze her hind legs and the vet did not agree at first, but now they are wondering too if that is not what it is, so the results should be in soon.  If it is her back as in a slipped disc, I have found a doggie chiropractor I would like to try.  Anyway, enough if that.  I do have a picture from last week at our Book character parade for Halloween from the primary school.  This is my friend Meghan and myself.  Meghan is our speech therapist.  It is almost Thanksgiving!  I am so excited!


  1. Hi Lori. So sorry to hear of your Dad's passing but I'm glad you find peace knowing he's in a better place. I am so happy to hear all your good news. You surely deserve it after all you've been thru. God bless! Hugz!

  2. Hi Lori! It is good to see your blog post :) I'm sorry it's been a rough year for you. Our year has been rough too. I blogged throughout the year, but not as consistently as I should have. After hubby's health scare last Christmas things got better for us as a couple and our diets improved 100%, but it seems that everything else around us fell apart for awhile. I am looking forward to 2018 and another new start.

    I hope Mandy will be ok. How old is she now? My Hailey will be 17 on February 3rd. I cannot believe she is still going strong, although she does have some arthritis, is deaf, and has yeast problems in her ears. I really expected her live to be about 14,but she shows no signs of slowing down yet.

    We stayed at a campground in Springfield on our way to and from Alabama and I really wanted to contact you to see if we could get together, but since we had no idea exactly when we'd pull in or out, I decided it would tough to plan something. Maybe one of these days we will have an opportunity. I hope you are having a blessed week and please, blog so I have another friend to visit! Big hugs!! <3

  3. Hi Lori, I know how hard it was for you to lose your dad. Time heals for the most past but some days his memory will hit you hard. But knowing our dads are in heaven does bring peace. Glad all is working out for you at school. I hope you keep blogging. I average about once a week now. Have a great week. Hugs

  4. Hi Lori,
    I hope everything works out for the blood work. Let us know.
    You've had a hard year and I pray God will comfort and lift you up.
    Sending many hugs.
