    Man, I had a tangle at work today. At the school I had the guy who will fight with anyone and tell you so! He got worked up while doing his tasks and tried to bite my hand off! I only got a bruise from my fist being in his mouth, but then he hauled off and hit his fist into my chest! Ohhhhh, that knocked the wind out of me! My whole side hurt all day.

    We had a nice sunny day today. I can put my plants back outside. Maybe I won't have to bring them back in later! Well, the girl scout cookies came and went right away! I resisted getting anymore today when I saw them when I went shopping. I really like the somoa's which is why I need to stay away from them! lol

    take care

    HI Linda, sorry to hear that once again one of the clients got to you. I know that they sometimes can't help lashing out, but you seem to be their favorite target. i hope you side feels better today, you didn't get a cracked rib did you?

    it will be a while before i can take my plants outside. its getting a bit warmed during the day here, but the nights are still below freezing.

    I bought a couple of boxes of GS cookies, but i had them donated to the troops instead of us getting them. I'd much rather share the goodies than bring them home and eat them.Have a good day...take care...phyllis

    Hi Linda, Sorry you got hurt again! As Phyllis said these guys seem to be targeting you. Do they go after the other staff too? I hope you only got bruises this time.

    Our weather this week is supposed to be in the 40's with the exception of tomorrow when we're supposed to have some more snow again. I'm really sick of it. Can't wait until spring!

    Have a good day!

    Oh no, this guy will get whomever is sitting next to him as I was. He has bitten a few people. It was just the one time. Used to be he got like that 4-5 times a day! Today he went after the staff that had him. The men staff held him back.

    It's getting cold here tomorrow. After the rain today. My brother keeps wishing for snow....ha!

    Phyllis that sounds like a better idea with the cookies!

    take care, Linda

    You have a rough job. I don't know how you do it. I hope you don't bruise up too bad.

    We are supposed to have a nice weekend. Getting warmer each day.

    My husband bought some girl scout cookies from another bus driver - and they are all gone. I didn't eat any. I'm glad he doesn't buy Thin Mints. I might have been real tempted LOL.

    Have a good one

    Hi Mandy,

    It was just a small bruise on my knuckle. I don't feel any other aches today.

    We've been going out for lunch so much it's hard to diet! I went out and got good stuff to make sandwich's to bring! Turkey, wheat pita, fresh spinach, ect. I have been getting into the fruits more and that helps with cravings.

    My daughter's been getting on the wii every day too now.

    We have near freezing nights now. I just can't get to sleep tonight.
    I won't lay in the bed if I can't sleep.

    Take care-Linda

    Good for you Linda. I was just telling my husband tonight I would like to get WII fit. I did some bowling and tennis, but that just works your arm. I know the WII fit works more than your arms.

    My daughter and I go to weight watchers. I have lost 6 pounds so far. I really want to loose about 30 more pounds. It's really slow going for me. I think exercise is absolutely necessary in order to lose.

    I haven't been as good as I should be with that.

    Hope you get some sleep. I stay up way to late at nights and then I have trouble getting up.

    Have a good one
