It's been forever....

Yeah, I kind of forgot that I had one of these things since I've been so busy. My life has been school and then house. We're painting EVERY room now while we're trying to be ready to move from our apartment to our house by the end of the month. Someone shoot me now. I'm cranky, sore and generally a bit tired all the time. At least school is almost out....until I start summer school. :o) You have to understand that I choose to do summer school. I'm one of those people that goes a little crazy when I don't feel like I have something to do. I don't sit well. I find I constantly itch for SOMETHING, ANYTHING to do. Then I decide to plan lunches with all my friends still working during the summer...and with the ones that aren't working for that matter. Then I want to shop, but we have NO money. I guess I'm just going to have to occupy myself somehow. At least I'll have the house to mess with. Perhaps my black thumb will turn green, and I'll be able to miraculously save the flower beds and plant cool stuff that will grow exactly like it's supposed to. Somehow I don't think that will happen. Well, I'll still be painting for a while..... I can't believe that I gripe when I'm busy and gripe when I'm not. Awesome!!!! I'm such a brat!

I'm sure that many of you have undertaken some home improvement projects. Well, then you know what a pain in the butt they are. We FINALLY got rid of all the devil popcorn. Aaron's been fixing/sanding ceilings like crazy. I now have the job of taping off the rooms to ensure that no texture/paint gets on the carprt. Yesterday I managed to mow the backyard....taking several passes to get all the stupid, hearty weeds! Because of all the rain we've been getting, the yard is soaked so the front isn't done.... With only 24 hours in a day, we're always behind on something. We're MOVING very soon, and we only have about 10 boxes. We haven't actually packed anything. I mean, why bother?? Our house is a disaster zone. There would be no place safe from all the mess and grime. Our garage is almost completely filled with light fixtures, fans, doors, etc. Whew! I feel so whiny and gripy. I'm always dirty. I take two baths every single day. My back constantly hurts. Yep, it's pretty bad. But here's the bright side....

We'll soon be moving into our very first house ever. It has a huge yard. There will be popcorn free ceilings, and we'll have picked every single paint color in the house. What an opportunity to make it ours! There will be some time to sit and do nothing SOME weekend in the future, so I'll look forward to that now. Plus all this rain is really making our grass green. We have good friends who have agreed to help us move too. So we are really blessed, and I'm done with the griping. Now I'll begin the countdown....only 23 days until move in of our dream house!!!! :o)

My body is on overload....

One would think that my body would be used to eating out....and eating rich foods. I guess that's just not true. Because we've been doing so much work on the house, we've been doing more eating out than cooking. Today at school we had a Cinco de Mayo picnic(yes, I know it's not the 5th yet, but we were worried about storms) and we had tons of Mexican food. Well, we can call me a Mexicant because my body is now rejecting that food. I'd go into all the gory details, but I figure there's no real need. Montezuma's Revenge is real....and it's happening to me. What I'm saying is that my body is really mad at me for feeding it all this junk. I was living off real food. Now UGH!!! To top it all off, I had a piece of cake at a wedding shower this afternoon. Not a brilliant idea either. When will I learn? AND why am I even writing about this? Oh, I don't know. It's been a slow day. Here's my advice: MORE GREENS!! Eat them up!

To my dad: I'm sorry that you bought a truck and had it die on you the next day. At least someone was able to go and pick you up from the lake. What a lemon!

Why does work stink so badly?

While I am at work, I think about all the fun things that I could do if I wasn't at work. I'm sure all of you do the same. However, at least you people get to leave. I've decided the worst thing about teaching is that you are there ALL DAY! No leaving for lunch....well, not really. I could run down the street to Wendy's or something in the 30 minutes that I get for break, but let's be realistic. By the time I get my kids in the cafeteria and in the line, 5 minutes are gone. On a good day, I could get down there and back in 15 minutes. Well, now let's do the math. I'd have 10 minutes to eat. Doesn't that sound appealing?! NO??? Yeah, not to me either. Here's the even more horrible thing. On days like today when it's probably going to rain, I basically won't even get to leave my classroom. No outside recess. We'll have to stay in. All you people that take going to the bathroom for granted....Don't! I have to plan my restroom breaks. There's no leaving the room at all. So again, I'm thinking of all the fun things that I could do if I wasn't at work....go to the bathroom when I want, take an hour for lunch, go outside just to see the sun.....all FUN things!

So there! My job is worse than yours. Get over yourselves! :o)

I know we all have days like this, but I am swamped. I'm tired and cranky, and I have a million and one things to get done. So far, it's just not going that well. I have managed to be a relatively good teacher :o), but I can't get anything done. Somehow I feel better just saying that. Plus, it's not like it's going to slow down. The end of the school year is just filled to the brim with stuff to get done, stuff to clean up, grades to get in, etc. AND my husband and I are working diligently to get our new house in order before we have to vacate our apartment. That means that we spend every waking hour there on the yard or inside the house. This weekend we scraped popcorn off our ceilings. Very messy and also NOT DONE! We still have 5 rooms to go. Sure, they're the smaller rooms, but whatever! It's time consuming and messy, and we're both tired of fast food. But there's no alternative. Then the texture guy ahs to come....then we have to paint....then we have to move....the CHAOS never ends. much better now....
