Don’t throw away those markers that have dried out! Remove the back cap with a pair of plyers. Use tweezers or scissors to pull out ink cartridge. Place cartridge in a cup of water , approx 2 TBSP. Let it soak as you work on other markers. When done squeeze water and ink out into the cup. The cartridge will turn white. Place paints in a tray for use! You have just recycled markers into water color paints!
EARTH DAY 2009
Sat, April 25, 2009 – 9:45 AM
In celebration of Earth Day this week I introduced the 3 R’s…Reduce, Recycle and Reuse to my class. They are now totally aware of the recycle symbol and look for it on EVERYTHING. In the classroom we try not to waste water. We save and reuse paper. We recycle plastic bottles. We turn off the lights when we leave the classroom. On Friday we went on a “trash walk” with our trash monsters and cleaned up the garbage on our block. To them it was like a treasure hunt and they really got into it. I am proud to know that I did a small part in getting my kids environmentally aware and doing their part to care for our planet. Are you doing your part?

Couldn’t make in to work today. Made it through yesterday but the migraine progressively got worse. Sinus pressure in my head, eyes hurting, feeling nauseous. 5 days, 4 migraine pills and 6 sinus pills later I’m still in agony. When the migraine pills don’t work or don’t last very long I’m screwed. At $30 a pill you’d think they damn well better work…..not always. Extreme cases I go to emergency room for an injection. Can’t do that without insurance and it still cost $100. Just need to ride it out as always. Wears me down and it takes away from my life. 21 years of these major cranial disturbances. Been through many specialists, neurologists, medications,chiropractic care, accupuncture, homeopathic care, changed my diet, exercised and ate healthy. It has helped somewhat ,unfortunately no one can find a cure for migraines. Guess I’m just wired differently. ***sigh***
