    For the first time ever I did not get pink slipped and will be back for another school year. It is a welcome change & it will be nice not to stress over the summer & to actually get to go in and work on my classroom.

    Nice JLuvs! That is such good news. My school job is getting a little better, too! They may be adding more days back. I guess they have figured out that they need us. Time to enjoy the present and look forward to the future!

    Re: Share your good news

    I went back east to visit my Mom - have tried to get back frequently since my Dad passed unexpectedly in October. Talked her into taking Dad's member card to the local racetrack/casino to see if they would cash it out for her (he had about $90 on it). They did, and she gave me $20 for the slot machines "from Dad." Well, I honestly have never won anything worth more than $20 in my life...but I hit an 8,000 credit on a nickel slot machine. Embarrassed to say, I couldn't figure in my head very quick how much that was...off hand, I thought it was $40 but it was actually $400! That's a pretty nice thing to have happen, and I split with my Mom. :-)

    Nice winnings Wannasee! Isn't it odd how that happened. Nice that you split it with your mom.
