Poopy Monday

My weekend was spent eating (homemade steak dinner Friday, dinner out at Champs Saturday and Sunday Family dinner), being entertained (saw Chicago Saturday night) and relaxing... well for the most part anyways!

I am really, really, really looking forward to sleeping tonight! Monday mornings are soooo very rough for me!! I never make it to bed on time Sunday night and I totally pay for it Monday morning! My favorite Starbucks baristas always know to make my Monday Americano a venti now! Add into the mix that today is overcast with a good chance of rain and any teacher or anybody who works with children knows what kind of Monday it has been. Oh and I have a class until 7pm today... boooo. This totally interrupts my dinner AND conflicts with my 'slim and sassy Amanda' plan (this is just my fancy way of saying 'working out'... I make it sound fun and exciting to trick myself into doing it!)

It is kind of sad when I am already looking forward to tomorrow night to get a good nights sleep! And to actually get some much needed snuggly time with Troy.
Happy Monday everyone!

ABC... its easy as 123!!!

A few friends have been doing this fun little 'quiz'.
I love learning about people, so I figured I would do it too :)
Let me know if you do it, too... I would love to read your answers!

A - Age: 28 years young

I - Interesting fact about yourself: I am super turbo organized or anal... however way you look at it. Sometimes I worry if I have some mild form of OCD!!! I just really associate cleanliness and organization with calm and order. People laugh at me and I even laugh at myself sometimes, but I cannot relax if things are out of place or all messy or out of the order in which I think they should be. It is not unlike me to try to organize or straighten up someones 'space' without even knowing that I am doing it.

V - Vegetable you dislike: I really enjoy all veggie's... even the good ole' brussel sprouts!

W - Ways you run late: not being able to find anything to wear!!! other than that I am always on time or early :)

Y - Yummy food you make: I love to cook food!!!

Z - Zoo favorite: giraffe

Its been too long...

So I feel as if I have been so behind on blogging... I totally apologize!!!
I have been going bananas with conferences, report cards, work projects and activities, classes and trying to balance all the other priorities in my life too!!!! I am just EXHAUSTED by time I get home!!! Troy and I are taking a 'staycation' this weekend... basically we are doing nothing!!! Well except for that community yard sale Saturday and family dinner Sunday. Oh and working out and.... see how the days get filled up sooooooo FAST!?!

Anyways... I have some exciting news about 2 of my great friends!

The first is that my friend Shelley and her boyfriend are now ENGAGED!!!
I am over the moon excited for Shelley and Clark! They are such a fabulous pair and I am super excited for their big day and all the fun days leading up to it, too!

The next thrilling bit of news is that my friend Jaci and her husband have finally sold their house in Minnesota and are moving back to Tucson! Wooo hooo!!! This has been like a year in the making so now its official... I can hear the words 'reunited and it feels so good...' playing in my head now!!!

Finally... it has been a bit of a doosey this week in my 1st grade class. Lets just say that kids know way too much these days AND parents should be very protective and aware of what their children are exposed to directly and indirectly! Anyways after dealing with all the drama and smoothing everything over (hopefully), we were walking to Music when one of my students said...

Ms. P... I love being the line leader.

(me)Even though it means you have to clean the tables at lunch??

Yep... I dont care, I just love holding your hand when we walk in line!

Talk about perspective... they have NO idea how much they teach ME everyday!
