End of January

Here I sit in the Cafe at Sinclair and I am reminded that this is the last day of January. Where does the time go. Seemed like just yesterday we were out mowing the lawn. Oh wait I do live in Ohio that could happen.
It has been a pretty productive month. I have completed most of my todo list. Have kept up with my picture a day with Mr P. That has become a good stress reliever. for those who don’t know about it check it out. http://www.mrpsadventures.wordpress.com
School is going pretty good. I am not the oldest kid in all my classes. I am finally figuring out what works for me in my geology class.
Home life is good. Taking a day at a time.
I need to find a job. I miss the interaction with people. Maybe next week Ill stop in to career services here at school and see what they can do for me.
Have my first exam today. Keeping fingers crossed for sure.
I’m off to get this day started.
Bring on February!

Jan 21 Be the change

The weather here in Ohio has takin a turn for the worse really. Low teens in temperature and a wind chill below 0. Makes me think about our homeless here and wonder how they are going to keep from getting frost bite. I volunteer for a women’s shelter that makes the clients leave by 8am everyday. A lot of these women have small children that are not in school yet. I know there are programs that these women can get involved in and that will help but it saddens my heart the stories I have heard of why they are there. If you have the opportunity to give money or supply’s to any of these shelters please do so. If you have a few hours a week to spare go help out. Be The Change!
Then there are the poor animals that are being left out in the cold to find for themselves. Watch you dog when they go outside. Don’t leave them out there to long. They can get frostbite as well. Bring the outside animals in. You wouldn’t want to be left outside with just a T-shirt and shorts would you…I think not. These animals are more then just animals they are family members. Treat them that way.
