Good News

Since my last few updates have been void of good news, I thought I'd dedicate this post to what's going great in my life.

  • Trevor got a much awaited letter today. His interview letter from Southwestern in Weatherford, OK. We've been waiting for it since Mid-Feb. When it came today in the mail, we were both ecstatic. After he goes in for his interview, we should hear if he is accepted or not by the first of May.

  • I'm excited to try out my new couponing skills this evening. I've picked out four deals, all should come out costing me nothing. (I'll keep you updated)

  • We got to visit with my Carter and Robyn (Trev's older brother and family) last night. I miss the days of seeing our brothers every day. I especially love getting to see my newest nephew, who has bright red hair and looks like his Uncle Trevor!

  • We found out Trevor has Easter off work.

  • I am very optimistic about actually signing my contract for next year before summer. Even though this is my third year of teaching, I've never signed a contract BEFORE summer... due to moves and changing districts.

  • All the Q-tips Samson ate last night...didn't hurt him. As proof I found them all whole today.. I won't tell you where. It was interesting to say the least. (Trevor almost puked)

on that note i'm off... BHow

Oh Dishes

dear Dishes.
Our paper plates ran out
so we were forced to use you
Now you sit, staring at me
from the kitchen sink
and counter
and table
and oven
and stool.

You win.

I'm a wierd-o

I've been thinking about the odd things I do lately. I realized, I'm weird. But I take comfort in knowing, so is everyone else. Below is a list, though not exhaustive.

- I always heat my coffee 1:11 to cut down on having to press buttons on the microwave
- I like to keep two jackets in my car, "just in case" but I stood freezing today because I was too lazy to get them
- I have a bad habit of forgetting to give spelling tests on Friday. So I tend to grade the pretest I give on Wednesday. But I feel like it's unfair to take that grade, so I get my two spelling grades from other things.
- I give my dog, Samson plastic knowing he will shred it. But shredding it keeps him from attacking his brother.
- I always get up 4 minutes after my alarm goes off
- I always set snooze but never let it go off
- I always sleep on Trevor's side of the bed when I take a nap, but when I sleep for the night, even when he's not there, I stay on my side.
- I like to take a bath at 8:45, if it's before or after, I'm not interested

On the flip side

woke up tired
later for work then I wanted to be
busy with teachers in my room
boys came in rowdy
girls came in chatty
wishing it was lunch time
or recess
hurried to make copies
hurry to make sub plans
hurry to dr. apt
came home with a headache
dogs bickering
husband chatting
nothing on tv

a new morning
got to school in time
friends stop by for encouragment
boys came in excited
girls came in engaged
stomach growling- thankful I know that lunch will be served
The sun is shining!
got to introduce a new lesson
thankful for a willing sub to cover while i'm gone
good medical care
got to take a nap!
dogs asking for some love
husband sharing life with me
time to relax and write

....guess it just depends on how you look at it.
