Ugh. Blogger is acting up again. Yesterday I checked my Reader … there were 46 unread posts, going back to February 18!
I read yesterday that more and more schools are no longer teaching cursive writing. It sounds like it’s a cross between not enough time or money to add another class to the curriculum and focusing more on keyboarding.
For the last two days, I’ve had a bloody nose right after getting up in the morning. My first thought was that with the furnace running, perhaps our air is too dry … but we have a humidifier that is working properly … and I checked our humidity level in the house – it’s fine.
I made it through Day One of cutting back on the Diet Coke. I know … can you believe it? I’m not sure that I can! T#1 and T#2 shared with me that they’d heard that diet soda drinkers are at an increased risk for heart disease. While my own research indicates that there needs to be more research before the risk is directly a cause of the soda consumption (rather than unhealthy food choices, etc.), I still felt led to cut back on my diet soda. I mean, how could I not when my grands expressed their concern for me? It wasn’t an easy choice to make, as I really enjoy my Diet Coke and I am kinda picky about what I drink (I want my drinks to have some flavor but nothing sweet and nothing hot) and I don’t drink anything with caffeine after lunch. I chose to go with caffeine-free iced tea in the afternoons … I’m still drinking Diet Coke for my caffeine in the mornings, but I’m actually giving some thought to switching to regular iced team for my mornings.
