If this is your first time visiting my blog, it does not generally look like this!
Two days ago I opened my webpage to find it was totally messed up with Photobucket images all over. My wonderful blog designer Kenna checked into it and Photobucket said they were working on it. It was gone yesterday & back again today! UGGGH!
I can't believe it is March already! But I was happy to see the calendar turn. This month holds...
my youngest turns 12 (mixed emotions)
Easter Break begins in a few short weeks
Not to mention, it is time for Currently again. Thanks to Farley over at Oh Boy Fourth Grade for this monthly linky.
Listening: to Bruno Mars CD - love the mix of songs he has on his CDs. Our first grades went to a play yesterday for the Little Mermaid. The play ended with the Count on Me song. It is going to be perfect for my son's Graduation CD. "You can count on me like 1,2,3. I'll be there. And I know when I need it, I can count on you like 4,3,2. You'll be there. Cause that's what friends supposed to do. OH yeah!" Wouldn't that make a great classroom song too - for building community!!
Loving: My wonderful hubby was sick last week (again!) but he got up out of bed long enough to get 4 tickets to see Kenny Chesney in May! We did not go last year when he toured with Tim McGraw, even though I love them both! I just couldn't justify spending $150 or more on 1 ticket when we are raising 3 kids. 2 with cars, and 1 in college. I just couldn't do it!
Thinking: Teenagers should come with instruction manuals!! Can I get an AMEN? I have 3 wonderful children, I really do!! God has blessed me beyond measure. There is just something about those teenage years that is meant to drive parents crazy. I am sure my worries are minor compared to what they could be, but if I could turn back time I would so turn back to when my kiddos were 2, 8, and 10. AND then I would hit the FREEZE button. I miss having little ones in the house. They are 11, 17, and 19 now!
Wanting: to learn to relax. My mom gave me a mani/pedi gift certificate for Christmas. Have I used it? NO! I love to pedis, but to sit for a mani and a pedi - that is just too long. Tried it once - kept counting the minutes til she was done with the mani!
For Valentine's Day, my sweet hubby, got me a mani/pedi & a 1 hour massage!!! It was very sweet of him. He wants me to relax. But doesn't he remember the one & only time I had an hour massage with him at this Swanky place? He almost fell asleep and I kept worrying about what fat part she was massaging now and when would she be done. I know I am a rare bird, but I just can't do it. I can't sit still that long without a melatonin or something to knock me out!
Needing: to clean my house today! But wait a minute, I am supposed to learn to relax. Should I practice now? NO. With all 3 children & hubby home soon, I think I will make a list and get this house clean like nobody's business. I hate clutter & it has taken over.
Like: Third Day - I love the lead singer's voice and almost all of their songs. When I need to feel the emotions I am going through without pushing them under and hiding them behind all the 'stuff' I need to do, I will play their songs.
Love: Teaching - I cannot imagine doing anything else with my life. I can't imagine a more rewarding job. I know I have lots I could complain about, or that could be fixed, but I wouldn't trade it for anything!
Hate: Tattling - "Mrs. Wilson, Johhny called me a knucklehead! Well, Lucy, are you a knucklehead? No. Then, why do you care what Johnny says? "
