I'm going back to being a hobbyist.... - Page 7

post #91 of 192
Opening this thread, I had a moment like reading one of those really good books

First: (dramatic gasp) NO WAY!! She's leaving us? icon_cry.gif
Second: Yay! You go girl! icon_lol.gif
Third: Whew, ok, she's not leaving us. icon_biggrin.gif

Ms. Indydebi,

I know I'm still a newbie around here, but I don't think there's a person on CC that you haven't helped or inspired at least a couple of times. Thank you! You're awesome!

And BIG congrats on the grant and going back to school! I really envy your future students. I hope your neck starts to feel better. I can't even handle whiplash, much less a chronic neck problem. You're gonna be a GREAT teacher. As many have said already, you already are here! Even now, you are teaching us to know our limits.

Glad you're staying with us!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

Debi,
I'm shocked - but very happy for you ! You have always been our voice of reason, our book of information, and our comic relief around here....I'm so glad you are staying !
You deserve this 'second round'! I know you will be a great teacher with those junior high kids- kicking butt and takin' names and giving inspiration at the same time - just like you are here with us !

Please take care of yourself and try to get more help with the pain - we want you to be around here for a long, long time !

Congratulations on going back to school - and getting a grant, no less. My DH is about to go back to school through a new extended Post-9-11 GI Bill (100% covered + stipend for books, etc.), so another opportunity that cannot be passed up. He's pursuing the dream to be a college Accounting Prof.

I wish you happy, less-painful days. My neck pain was not caused by a car accident, but rather an "ocean accident" where a huge wave kicked my butt and also cracked ribs and messed with my neck vertebrae. I feel like I will always be "recovering."

Thank you for being a valuable teacher here on CC and I am glad to hear you will not be leaving us entirely icon_biggrin.gif

icon_cry.gif That's me being sad for me. icon_biggrin.gif but extemely happy for you in you new endeavor.

icon_razz.gif Hey don't knock my December wardrobe ~ I only wear Christmas sweaters and tops in December. It sure makes my 'what to wear today' question easy and have been doing this for 18 years.

ouch.gif I know about your pain ~ I too have arthritis in my neck to the extent of 'being a pain in the neck' to most. I also have arthritis in my tailbone thus 'being a pain in the butt' to most. Really it's true. It's where my arthritis pains are but now I feel it is creeping into my hands.

When I was at the university ages and ages ago my history prof was Japanese and I couldn't understand a word he said (his English was awful and I always thought he thought that Japan won the war). Needless to say I did not do well in his class. As far as me enjoying history I think I would have done well in it if it had more of the 'smut' thrown in to keep me interested. You know along the lines of a Rosemary Rogers novel. We all know it happened ~ it was just never talked about in history classes.
Do enjoy your new direction, do well in school and I will continue to look forward to your sage advice and honesty and humorous quips.

I haven't really been on in ages so when I came on today and saw this post today, needless to say I was shocked.

I hope Debi that you get some relief from your neck pain and I wish you the best in your future endeavors. I know your going to knock them all dead!!!
