According to the educator’s website TeacherVision, today is International Blog Day. It also happens to be my 8th Anniversary as a blogger on WordPress.com. Last week, I had to upgrade my blog to the next level. Soon, I will be claiming a domain name. Writing and posting more regularly has increased my traffic and gained me new followers. That, dear reader, makes me extremely happy.

The month of August has come to an end and brought with it a sigh of relief. I survived the beginning of another school year and NJHS Induction. Last night, my co-sponsors and I welcomed 27 new members into National Junior Honor Society. There is a great deal of planning involved in the ceremony which was beautifully executed thanks to our former officers and the sponsors. Needless to say, we are proud of these young men and women who have achieved this honor, and I look forward to working with them throughout the school year.

My biopsy results also arrived yesterday afternoon. AWESOME news! My biopsy was negative for H. Pylori which is a bacteria that can eventually cause infection and lead to stomach cancer. Thankfully, my results were good. I will continue taking the medication prescribed by my doctor; however, it is time for me to change my diet. The medication may be causing the polyps, so it would be lovely to be able to control my acid reflux issues with diet instead of medication. I purchased a book called The Complete Acid Reflux Diet Plan by Nour Zibdeh. She is a registered dietitian and functional nutritionist. Now, I must read her book and take action. I am almost guaranteed of losing my 18 pounds because the plan pretty much eliminates everything.

Dragon RollI met my hubby for dinner during the week, and we ate at Kirin in downtown Hammond. We love eating at the sushi bar. Surprisingly, the restaurant was not too busy, and the sushi chef created the most fantastic dragon roll for me. Not only was it delicious, but it was beautiful. This was the first time in my sushi eating life that a roll was presented to me in this way. Angus, the sushi chef, actually made the roll look like a fire-breathing dragon.

With my blog upgrade, you may see some additions since I will have access to more features and capabilities. Of course, the increase in space allows me to keep my published posts archived. I’m looking forward to learning some new features and obtaining my own domain. I do not fully understand it all; however, I am excited to learn about it and make my blog even better. Thank you, dear readers, for your support and encouragement. Happiness!
