I'll learn someday, but today I'm disappointed.

I wish I could have gone to dinner and my meeting.

Well it looks like Debbie has a new job working for QuadraMed. I don't know much about the company, but her division was sold by Misys Healthcare, who she used to work for, Hopefully it'll be a good thing.

My unexpected day off

Izzy is sick and I've taken the day off. She's got a bad cold and really feeling under the weather. Runny noise, little cough, red eyes and cranky. My poor baby. She's getting better but it's upsetting to see my baby not feeling well.

Coco, my MinPin

Mostly Izzy on a Beaumont CA Summer afternoon

Nice wife

We had a large windfall that I didn't know was coming and Debbie offered to let me by a new PC, but I just can't myself to do it with another child or two coming into to our house, possibly soon. It will have to wait, every dog has his day. I am going to buy a video camera though. I need to do some research and figure out what I want to buy. Her offer to buy that PC sure did make me feel good though. Izzy isn't feeling well tonight and she had a pretty rough night last night. She's getting better though and hopefully she sleeps well tonight.

I like my work

If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn't want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher's job. ~Donald D.
