My experiences while living with my mother and her Alzheimer's Disease.(her birthdate = January 2, 1925)

Weekend was interesting. Mama's internal clock did not understand turning the clocks back. She woke up at "normal" time so she has been up early every morning except today. Guess her body is catching up with the clock!! I HATE THE TIME CHANGE!!!!!!! I really wish they would pick ONE time and leave it alone, but no one listens to me.

Mama has slept pretty well the past couple of nights. This means I was able to sleep pretty well, also. Thank goodness as I was getting a bit cranky with just naps between trips to the door because she heard someone out there.

I have other stories about the weekend, but they are on a disk at home. Will have to load them later.

I am working on this while my class works on a computer PowerPoint presentations. They are doing a really good job of staying on task (boys are getting a bit restless now though so won't be able to add too much)

A note about me: Our middle school Student Council held a fund raiser this week. It was for the School Hunk and Honey. Bags were made for teacher/staff contestants and votes were cast using pennies. One penny equaled one vote. The catch: Silver coins took away votes. (a quarter was minus 25) Competition was fierce, but I won the Herman Middle School Honey for 2002-2003. Supposedly I received 1000 votes. Made me feel really special. Coach Evans, the sixth grade Social Studies teacher, is the Hunk.

Have a great weekend.
