BUSY and EXCITED!!!
SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER!! I've been popping into my classroom to start setting up and get ready for my students. Next week they are open at night so that is when I will predominantly get things done. Its hard setting up a classroom with two kids having rolling chair races down the hall. As much as I get myself all nervous and jittery like I'm a kid on the first day, I truly love what I do. I love the excitement of it all, I love having a different day everyday, I love the challenges, I love seeing the children learn, and I love the routine of it all. Trust me, there are some negatives like leaving my two cherubs and hearing Lucas cry like his world is ending for the first three weeks of me going....now that, I'm looking forward to! Not really.
MY FIRST TRII've been preparing less than I would like with all my marathon training in the works! I'm really excited but at the same time nervous. I am going to stay overnight Saturday and then race Sunday morning. I hope for a nice day and no drowning or falling off the bike....nah, I'm really not as bad as I am cracking myself up to be...I should be fine but I need to keep it easy so the excitement doesn't make me drown or um...fall of the bike.
SARAH BAREILLES!!! I am going to her concert on the 31st and I am super, super excited. I was at first going to venture out to the city on my own because I really like her music and only wanted someone that liked her music as well to join me. I paused for a bit this month and decided that Scott really enjoys me lol, and we really enjoy going places together
By Golly I think I've met my goal!!
I had made a bucket list a few years back and one of the goals on the bucket list was to start my own garden. I planted tomatoes, peppers, peas, basil, cucumbers and broccoli. The only thing that didn't work were the cucumbers and that's because I was worried about how safe they were to eat. Let me explain, I caught Brooke and Lucas "watering"
killing the cucumbers with pool water. That's a lot of chlorine in a cucumber salad...and kind of negates my 'organic' label. Needless to say we went to King Kullen for our cucumbers this summer. With all the other veggies ...I'm at the point that I don't know what to do with it all!! Lucas and I go out every morning to see what we have grown. We weren't able to go for two days because of all the rain and look what we collected!!! I already have two bins of tomatoes in the fridge!!!!
Okay, so my son is obsessed with Snow White. He runs around the house with her doll screaming WHITE, WHITE. I mean really, if you think about it, she's beautiful, polite, caring, takes care of the home and seven grown men! Geez, if she's not a catch I don' t know who is?! Honestly, though he really does love the woman and I just would be delighted to see his face if he saw her face. That said, I've been craving a trip to Disney. I really never loved Disney as much as I learned to like it after working there. I was able to step back and see why I think people/adults
put themselves through the torture of walking for hours through a crowded park loved going...the expressions on their child's face...as cheesy as it sounds...it really is just priceless. They really believe in it all, the magic, the fairies, the wicked witches and it makes you feel it for the day....who wouldn't want to go and enjoy that. So I booked a trip the weekend after my marathon ( I hope I can walk)...four days only...short and sweet. Enough for Lukey to get his fill of WHITE, WHITE!
I am pretty forgetful but one thing I pretty much always have to concentrate and calculate is my age. I know...but it just seems crazy to me that I could actually be turning 37 in September!! I really don't feel 37...not sure what I thought it would feel like...and I am also pretty sure this is the definition of denial.. Long story short, I really just want to go shopping for my birthday or actually before (because I don't really enjoy shopping...its too long and tiring and I hate trying on clothes...I'm more of a 'Marshall's find' kind of girl), and get some clothes I fit in. I just found out that I am able to get some of my favorite sundresses taken in. This is a good thing because I was getting upset about having to get rid of soooo many clothes. One day I will show you before and after pictures but for now lets say I have a wardrobe that goes from size 14 down to 4.. I gave away all my "small" clothes thinking I would never get back to that size...ever, never, ever! Well I'm there now and I have nothing to wear for it! So a' shopping I will go!
What are you busy with or excited for??!!!!
Do you like Disney?!
How old are you? lol just kidding!
Any recipes for all my tomatoes and basil?
