Accomplishment...Plus a little humor

I have poured my heart out on this blog and thank you for all of the support. But I also wanted to share some of the other things that have been going on in my life.

I have finished a book! You know that I have struggled with finishing books in the past but I finally focused and finished a GREAT book. I wish that there was a book club out there that I could join right this moment and talk about what I thought, how it moved me and what the message really was. This book is amazing! Has anybody read this book?








I also had a funny moment today at work...funny and wrong. I had several students who were involved in using and possession of drugs at school today. I was in the process of interviewing them when I grabbed a pair of latex gloves to search through their possessions. Believe me...gloves are mandatory when touching their shoes! Not the funny part. One of the young ladies asked me if I really was going to do a full body search. I pulled my gloves out and asked...what do you think I have these gloves for? Ha! Her eyes got so big and she pulled out the pipe and bag of pot and begged me to believe that she wasn't hiding anything else. After I contacted her parents and the police, I let her know that the gloves were for searching her backpack, shoes and jacket...but thanks for being so honest.

We should try that tactic on suspected terrorists... it's probably more effective than waterboarding.

I did read that book. It was amazing. The author is truly a strong woman.

I one time cleaned out the book bin with rubber gloves and when the janitor saw me he backed away quickly :)

Suze - the book was amazing. I have been telling anybody who will listen how strong and clear this woman is...even during the bad moments. Loved this book!
