Crazo Thursday!

Oh my word! I just had the parent meeting from Hades! Pray for my precious bees because some of their moms and dads are LOCO!

On a better note, somehow it is all ready Thursday. Where in the world did this week (and January) go?

Oh, and prayyyyy for snow! We're hoping for a snow day tomorrow! Lots of Love!!!!

Today has been interesting, and I'm just now eating lunch. I had to run out and get some blood drawn during my planning. It's just routine for a checkup, so I ran out (a little late) and barely made it on time.

Apparently, I have not so good veins (all you squeamish people should prb. stop reading now), so they had to "stick" me three times. Each time involved some needle wiggling, too (OUCH!). Anyway, the third time (on my hand!!!), everything started flowing well. About 30 seconds in, I start feeling seriously funky. I mean, the corners of my vision got cloudy, my head felt heavy, and my ears felt like they were plugged with cotton. SUUUPer weird. It felt like the people talking were on speakerphone. The little man was so sweet and tried to keep me calm by asking about my job. But I was like, whoa, something funky is going on. Old girl, the nurse slings a wet paper towel on my forehead and pushed my head against the wall.

ooooh I was struggling. I was trying so hard so stay with it. I wiggled my toes and tried to keep talking. In the end, I didn't pass all the way out, but I told him there was no way I could walk. Since I had taken a RIDICULOUS amount of time, there were like 15 old people outside the doorway. They had to go get me a wheelchair and wheel me down the hall to a room. There, they made me recline and put my feet up. They made me stay for about 15 minutes (and it took that long to even feel semi-normal again). As they wheeled me (mortifyingly!) through the throng of old people I heard:

"Is she okay?"
"She does not look good."
"Oh, Lord, she is going to pass out." That last one was my favorite.

Thankfully, I made it out. Next time, I will definitely eat before I go. :)

I have a little bit of a pounding headache so am taking a few quiet moments at my desk to get things together. Whooosh. Hope you're Tuesday is going a little better than mine!

Fastest week EVERRRR!!

I cannot believe it is Friday. This has been the fastest week ever! And it has been really happy. I mean, every day has been a good day. I am just really thankful because I was really worried about this semester.

I am working with new groups of kids, and I was worried about leaving some of my babies. I still worry, but I'm able to check in with most of them. My new groups are quite a bit higher than last semester, so I feel like I'm able to really push them. It's a good feelng.

I am pumped to be staying here this weekend so I can really get caught up with planning and homework. My class is online for this quarter, which means no more night class for a while. (sooo happy!) I may end up running home on Sunday afternoon, but I am going to try to really use this weekend to be productive.

This is a really scattered post, but I'm running to lunch! Hope you have had a happy week, too!

Ode to a Snow Day!

Oh happy, blissful day.
The snow, it falls in such a peaceful way.
Last night, I was unsure and afraid--
I did not know when the call would be made.
At 9:43 p.m. on the dot,
I received a text and believed it not.
I checked online and on TV
finally confirmed and filled with glee.

I went to bed, so happy and relaxed.
Today, I've been productive to the max.
Taking down Christmas and ready to play--
I put up the happiness of Valentine's day!

Could it happen, what my kiddos said yesterday--
We won't have school till Monday?
I can only pray, can only hope.
If we go in, I will do nothing but mope.

As a student, the snow day was fun and filled with mirth.
As a teacher, it is heaven on Earth!

I'm back!!!!

Welp after a nice long hiatus, I am BACK! The past two weeks were amazing! Christmas with the fam has never been better. We got all of our cookie baking, gingerbread house-making, and card sending done in record time. It was so nice just to be able to relax and enjoy quality time with family and friends. The Christmas eve candlelight service at LH was definitely one of the highpoints. I look forward to that all year.

New Year's was wonderful as usual, with the annual party and pots-n-pans parade at granny's. I was afraid she was not going to feel up to the party (and she did go lay down for part of it), but I think she enjoyed having everyone over.

After a couple of more blissfully relaxing days, I am back at school. I have an easy couple of days since I am figuring out my new schedule, but it's going to get pretty intense pretty quickly. Wish me luck, and pray that we have snow this week! WOOHOO!!
