Sunday Blues...

I've got the Sunday Blues....

Other teachers would understand what I mean. It's that depression that hits on Sunday afternoon when you realize that tomorrow is another Monday...and week full of students and chaos. UGH. I think I'm also so sad because my best friend, Ryanne, is moving this week. I can't even be there to help her load the truck because I have Open House at my school....and I can't skip meeting all the parents of my students.

Well, I've put it off long enough....it's time to plan for this week of school.

Attached is a picture that make you laugh....I laugh now, but at the time was ANNOYED. Yup, Byson ate our car last week. Jason insisted he go to Kroger with us, since Reggie was coming along, and after a little arguing (because I said he'd chew something), I gave in....and after about 15 minutes in the car while we got groceries, this is what he did! He also ate my car freshner thing (and oil stains were on my seat), and he broke my Clay Aiken cd! THAT DARN DOG! ahahahah To top it off, he chewed part of my luggage toiletry bag while in his cage in the basement...(he's got a long tongue, so i'm assuming he somehow licked the bag close enough to the cage to chew!) OH BROTHER.......

And by the way, this picture doesn't make it look too horrible, but if you see it in person, it looks crazier. I need to attach a sign to my dashboard that says, "My dog ate my car," because I"m sure people wonder as they walk by....

Have a good week!

Ready or Not, Here they come...

Wow, I guess I won't be posting as much as I'd like now that I'm back to work! I've moved classrooms, and things are pretty well settled thanks to my mom's help the past few days! I have a few more things to sort, and then I need to make a schedule, update some things, make plans for this first week of students, etc, etc. etc. (I'm a little overwhelmed...). Tomorrow is a bunch of meetings, and Tuesday the kids come! OH MY WORD. I guess everything I didn't get done this summer will just have to wait.:-)
Have a great rest of the weekend...

I have an amazing husband...


So Jason pulled it off...he surprised me along with his sisters.....

Alissa, Anna, Shayna, and Kara came for a surprise visit last Friday until Monday morning. They were hiding in my bathroom when I got home from picking up some pizza...
It was such an amazing, relaxing, fun weekend. We watched movies, home videos, ate good food, and laughed.

Little did I know they had belated birthday surprise II planned for Saturday night. I ran some errands with Alissa and Kara, and when we returned, Jason and the other girls had the house decorated, and my friends Kristin and Ryanne were at my house too! Jason baked a strawberry cake and made a strawberry pie. He aslo made nachos! It was great! They brought gifts for me to open too. I felt so loved.

I feel so blessed to have such amazing family and friends!!!!!

Here are some shots from this weekend...

Kara, Reggie, and I....

With August comes new students and a new school year!

So this week has been consumed by classroom preparation. I'm trying to get extra organized as I move into a new classroom (they shuffled some things around in our building). I'm so in denial that school starts in a few weeks! I'll have to post pictures of my room once it's finished.....but right now, it's still a disaster.:-)
My boys are all doing well this week....nothing new to report about them.
Hope everyone is doing well!

The Joys of being the Birthday Girl....Funfetti cake and RAINBOW CHIP FROSTING!

I'm officially 26 now....meaning, i'm getting old because rounding up....I'm closer to 30 than 20! Anyways, today I got to go shopping and found some cute shirts. I was excited. Then, Jason took me to Monicals for thier pizza lunch buffet. I loved it. When Jason got home from work, he walked in with a cake mix and frosting.....Pillsbury's funfetti cake, ....however, he had the wrong frosting (and he knew it). He spent atleast 20 minutes at Kroger searching for my favorite Rainbow Chip frosting, and he finally settled for another kind because he couldn't find it. When I made a sad but happy face.....he immediately said he'd go check Jewel for the frosting. I offered to go instead because I could tell he was exhausted, however, like the great husband he is, he said he'd go get it and not to worry about it. He returned from Jewel with another kind of frosting, once again, not Rainbow Chip. I KNOW they still sell Rainbow Chip, so I insisted that I go and look, but he wouldn't let me go alone. So....we returned the frosting to Jewel, and nope...no Rainbow Chip. Then, we returned the other frosting to Kroger.....and guess what we found????? Betty Crocker's Rainbow Chip Frosting....right next to the frosting Jason originally bought. ahahahahah AHAHHAHA, we laughed so hard and said this is a day we'll never forget. :) He has a very picky wife when it comes to her birthday cake.:-) (Ryanne, you understand....the other frosting just isn't the same!!!!!)

SO, the moral of this story is, if you've never had Pillsbury's Funfetti cake with Betty Crocker's Rainbow Chip frosting, go out there and buy some tonight! You won't regret it. ahahahahah

one more thing...

Reggie's friend (and my best friend) Ryanne came over tonight after our bible study.....

She took a shower here (that is why she has a towel on her head) and if you know her well, you wouldn't question why she was laying on the floor wrapped in a blanket. That's just what she does. One time, she fell alseep on my kitchen floor.....

I had to get a few shots....

hi...

It's been a crazy week! I finished my second grad class....so that's good.
