Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

We are thankful for our family, all of them... even the crazy ones!

We are also thankful for 2 days off work (my husband had 3 so he's extra thankful!).

And let's not forget all the deserts and foods later! I will feel guilty for a week... wait... no I won't! It's Thanksgiving!

Happiness to you all!

Monday.... or is it?

Well, It was a very nice weekend, and it's Monday again.

This weekend I spent every spare moment cleaning my house since I had a demo party on Sunday. (You know the kind, someone comes in, shows products, and you guilt your friends who came into buying something so you, the host, can get things free.) Well, the house was perfect, and no one really looked! (I hate it when my husband is right!) However, the house being perfect made me one much calmer hostess, and I had a very good time with the friends and family that came by. I also got 2 fabulous purses for about $16! (Together they should have cost over $100!) PS- I am actually thinking about becoming one of those party expert salespeople. It seems like a great way to become a stay at home mom!

And now it's Monday! But mentally, I think it's Wednesday. This is some pretty crazy logic so I understand entirely if you can't follow along!

  • Friday- I have no work, so it will feel like a weekend day.
  • Thursday- I have no work, it's Thanksgiving, and it will feel like a weekend day.
  • Wednesday- I have to go to work for a half day, but don't have students, so it will be v. relaxed and feel like a Friday.
  • Tuesday- Is a very long day at work, and Thursday's always feel long so Tuesday is my Thursday.
  • Monday (Today)- is the day before my mental Thursday, so it must be Wednesday!

Now do you see what my crazy schedule is doing to my brain?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!

It's been too long

I don't know where the time goes, except that it is gone.

Last week is a blur, I would have to think hard to even tell you what I did and I just don't want to think hard right now.

One thing though... Did I tell you yet that they changed the lightbulbs in my classroom? and that the new bulbs have given me a migrane EVERYDAY since then! I had to get a Dr's note but now they are going to change them out as soon as possible. (Around here, that means that I'm not rushing to take that bottle of Excedrine Migrane home anytime soon.)

So what's new... nothing! I am busy, busy, busy. Let's see here... it's Tues. afternoon, about 2pm. I haven't yet done the work for my 3:45 meeting... or my Wed. night grad class... or planned my lesson's for the rest of this week! And what am I doing, I am stalling by typing this blog.

I will leave you with the one thought that is getting me through my week, although unless you are a teacher it probably won't mean to much to you.... 6 school days until Thanksgiving break and 23 until winter break with it's 2 weeks off!!!!!!!!!!!! YAHOO!!!!!!!

Happy Friday

It's been a very long week.

Today was a good day though. We had a party for our students to celebrate a great first quarter of the school year. Today I was basically paid to supervise and coordianate. I could do that more! The kids all brought in food to share.... we had a breakfast party and movie. It was nice.

I'm looking forward to a weekend with no committments or work to do.

I need to finish the book Jamie bought me so I can visit with her book club this month but otherwise, I'm thinking.... laundry, maybe a local craft fair, maybe write a letter or two.

It's a very happy Friday!

a bad day after a bad week

SO.... I tried to post earlier this week, and I typed A LOT but it wouldn't post... my lame computer probably.

It's been a bad week. I have been stressed at school. My canidate lost the election. Adam is working late a lot and I miss him. And I would have sworn today was Friday.

That's really been the kicker. It's Thursday today and I could have sworn it was Friday! I was so looking forward to a Friday. Then, My day got worse when I called a parent of one of my students and ....long story short.... it ended with her getting my supervisor's name and number. Now, I have complete faith that he will back me up (ok, I'm 90% sure) but who needs to start off thier day with a client complaining and going to thier boss about them!

I sincerly hope today gets better. If not, I may just have to crawl into a hole and hide!

knock on wood

Well, I'm afraid to say it, but it seems to be a good, calm, relatively uneventful day!

Our family seems to be feeling well at last, I am caught up with my grading for school, this is my one week off from Grad class, it's a good thing!

We had a very nice relaxing weekend. Jamie and Sean (her boyfriend) brought over Doc (her dog) and helped Brianna and I pass out halloween candy on Sun. Sat was just nice time with our own little family. It's been far to long since we've had a nice weekend like this with no major committments or drains on our time.

I am looking forward to seeing what happens in the election on Tues. I am perhaps more looking forward to watching some TV and reading a book (just a novel, no class work here!) tonight with out guilt!

I hope by saying it I didn't jinx it!
Knock on wood for me, all I have available is cheap laminiate!
