It's like I'm in the Twilight Zone!

Okay, my sister Khristy just emailed me to ask about whether she might like teaching 4th or 5th grade. there a giant meteor on the way to hit Earth? Is the sky really falling? Is there a flying pig going past my window right now? In other words, WHAT?? Is my sister REALLY thinking about teaching elementary? She taught middle school for a bit, and I thought she had lost her mind. I love teaching, but middle schoolers??! They are hormonal and more than a little cranky most of the time. Could it be that she is finally realizing that elementary students are, for the most part, sweet and try really hard? Maybe she has grown up :o) and wants to be just like her little sis! I'm sure that's it. Either way, I say go for it. It's fun. As kids of teachers, we've always known the benefits. Here's some advice though. DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT TEACHING YOUR OWN CHILDREN. :o) Love you, K!

No white pants!

Okay, who even invented white pants? They must have been a sadistic soul. For one, who can look good in those? My butt would look, as my dad would say, "2 axe handles wide". I can't imagine that's any good at all. Then there's the fact that NO ONE could possibly wear those for a whole day and keep them clean! I don't even believe it's possible. It's like it's just calling for spaghetti sauce. Who needs all that pressure!!!???? Apparently I may have to wear those this weekend. One problem, I don't own any. I know me. Why buy them when I'll never wear them? They'd hang in my closet for all eternity....just taunting me with my own fatness. Ugh! I'm NOT buying them!

We'll see if that holds up...... be continued!

Two words.....Stephanie Plum....

For those of you out there who don't know who Stephanie Plum is, you're missing out. She's only the funniest book character out there in a series of books by Janet Evanovich. To give you an overview, she's an inept bounty hunter. She's totally in over her head in book after book, and many belly laughs ensue. Yes, it's true. I actually laugh out loud when I read these books. People stare at me strangely, but I don't care. We could all use more belly laughs. Here's what I think though....I want to BE Stephanie Plum. How many of us don't wish for my excitement in our day to day lives? I know that I do, and I don't even sit in a stupid cubicle all day. I want to carry around a gun and a taser thing. Of course, I really want this life without all the danger and all. I don't need anything blowing up or have to spend time trying to wrestle some naked dude into jail that's covered in Vaseline! Yep, so I want all the excitement with none of the danger. I'm sure that's why I just read instead. At heart, I'm just quite boring..... yep, I am. But one of these days.......

I am thinking about my friend Kelli tonight. We are going to get to hang out some this weekend since we both have a little free time. This makes me pretty excited. I have missed my friends. Marriage is wonderful...don't get me wrong. But sometimes there really are things that only other girls can understand. I'll tell my husband about it, but the reaction is definitely not the same. I can't really explain it. Kelli and I have clicked from the beginning. I'm just really glad that we're friends.... And I'm praying that her mean husband lets her get a cat. :o)

Who in the world except us celebrates Earth Day?

Today is Earth Day at our school. It consists of us doing a packet about how we can help the Earth, eating our lunch outside, planting flowers in the outdoor learning center and a LOT of playing outside. My question is just there anyone out there who actually celebrates this day?? The press never really talks about it. No one really seems to care. I'm not one of those tree hugger types, but perhaps more people should care. So, on that note, pick up some trash as you're walking from your car to the building...don't litter like always...plant a tree or a shrub or something. Seriously people! Get up and do something already! Now having stepped off my high horse I'll go and enjoy my day....and make sure I pick up my OWN trash!

Why do I even get myself into these things????????

Well, here is my first entry in my new blog. And everyone cheered(when they ate Sir Robin's minstrels)! I got sucked in by a friend of mine. I'm kind of hoping that this will be cathartic, but maybe it will just end up being one of those things that I start and then never want to do......Whatever! Yeah, my life is pretty boring. There's tons of things going one but nothing out of the norm. My husband and I just bought our first house. It was a pretty trying process, but it's done. Now we own a house and have no money. Fun times! On the bright side, it gives us room for a baby....whenever we decide to do that! ...... It's passed my married woman's bedtime.
