Today I am encompassing thankfulness to every person who is in my life and supports and encourages me. From quad mamas to mamas to college students, I am blessed to be surrounded with a great family.

I have to say Tuesday was dandy but the evening (after 8pm) was not.
I received a very rude comment/email from a blogger via email and I have no idea who they are.
I guess I care too much and the tears are flowing.
I normally do not get this upset but words do hurt!
I was extremely frustrated with my school newspaper on Tuesday night and I was not expecting the MEAN and CRUEL email that I received after the newspaper ordeal.
I am a little taken back at how someone could judge me and not even know "me"! I try to do my best life but I do not appreciate rude and uncalled for emails.
I am looking up and not down but do not appreciate rude emails from people who do not know me!

They cost about 50 cents more than Altoids and since I can't have regular gum, due to soy, and since regular breath mints also have soy, I guess I am stuck with these. :)
Here is my problem though and where I am addicted...I like to "pop" a few through out the day. A few adds up on a daily basis! This is one thing that I can "chew" on and it not be horrible for me or taste bad/have no taste at all.
Every day I need to chew on something and get a crunch and straws just ain't cuttin' it! I have narrowed my "chew" obsession down to the fact that I don't really get anything crunchy in my diet due to my allergies and I just like to chew on something throughout the day period.
SO I guess I will just stick to my new addiction and know that this can do NO harm. ;)

Holy Moly Batman! Monday already?! I think I need a few more days off please. MckMama is hosting her wonderful NMM so I thought I would participate today and give YOU a few laughs.
I did not take a much needed 4 hour, that's right, 4 hour nap this morning. I know I needed the sleep but come on people, 4 hours! I think I wowed myself.
I do not appreciate when professors give you full reign and say what they will not do (ie. tell me what to do) and then go back on their word and put their two cents in. SO frustrating today!
I am not excited about the snow the weather man is reporting...again!
I did not laugh at my sister when she said that Jillian Michaels looks like a guy and thinks I am nuts for doing her videos. But she gets up at A&M and does a boot camp at 5am. Nope not me! I would not like to stay in my heated apt and workout!
I did not plan to clean my apartment this morning but fail due to my nap. Guess that will just have to wait til Wednesday :o
Have a great week

HOLY MOLY batman! This past week almost took the best out of me. Between our school newspaper getting scammed to my truck and all its insurance drama to little sleep and much stress...I think I survived!
First of all...THANK YOU for your prayers and good vibes sent my way. I really appreciated it! I also needed them. So...THANK YOU!!!
I just, today, finished a 28 page unit for third graders. For a class, I have to teach for four days. My topic is on early colonization of America. We will discuss Native Americans, Explorers, and Pilgrims. I am literally relieved that this darn unit is done. Sitting in front of the computer screen for hours is not my cup of tea and looking at the same darn document for a week is not that fun. But it is mostly over and now comes the fun part...eek!
Short story-my newspaper got a call saying that a company, who had done a full page ad in our paper, was hacked into and the company's credit card was stolen. SO we are now working with the FBI and the company and our newspaper to get everything straightened out. This hit the fan on Wednesday evening.
My truck drama-The insurance companies are now involved and we are going back and forth with communication. That is a whole hassle and blessing in itself.
Stress & Little sleep-I promise you that I will get much more sleep this week. I got all worked up with this 28 page assignment and it took, literally, everything out of me. Since it is now done, I may be more pleasant this week.

This week has been tough and difficult and it is only Wednesday. Emotionally I am really down. Physically I am exhausted and sore. Mentally I am overwhelmed. Spiritually I just need to rely more on HIM as well as trust HIS path for me.
I will update when I can. So my friends, I am asking for a prayers from you.

Well good Monday to you all! MckMama is behind this fabulous and free
therapy tell all to come clean about what you did not do this past week. So if you drank the milk out of the carton or overslept repeatedly, it's okay...it's Not Me Monday! So here goes my shot of what I did not do this past week ;)
This past week...
not drop my nighttime pill container in the toilet and quickly pick it up, dry it, and then place it back in the cabinet. Nope not me!
not enjoy using my swifter wet jet and dance while using it. :o
not actually wear my pajama pants to the library on two separate occasions. I usually wear proper clothes every time but they were just calling my name and are not comfy, people.
not take my Thursday (snow day) off and do nothing but watch movies, play on the computer, and just chill. Nope not me! I always use my extra time wisely ;)
not enjoy watching the snow fall outside my window!
So there ya have it! A Not Me Monday on an early Monday morning! Hope you had a great weekend!
Have a fabulous day!!!

Most of these pictures were taken from my apartment landing which is covered. I ventured out to get the tree shots. These were taken on Thursday morning. Not all the snow had fallen. I LOVE photographing nature by itself. Hope this tides you over for pictures. It was SO time :)
Update: My driver's side is dented above both wheels pretty well, if I do say so myself. Geez! This is not what I needed to hear :(
I am okay! My head & neck are sore but I am more shaken up than anything. I called a friend who had already gotten to school and she said the roads were not bad so I went ahead. School did not start off being cancelled this morning so I headed out and was going down a hill when I hit ice (which was under snow). I swerved in and out of my lane and could not stop. My steering wheel was not manageable and I felt like I was moving in and out of lanes horizontally. The driver in the lane that I came into was hit. His passenger door is a little dented and my drivers' side has a small dent in the door. Other than that, everyone is fine and just shaken up.
I have never had a ticket or an accident so this is new territory for me. When we exchanged insurance information, I lost it. I am counting my blessings and am staying off the dangerous roads until it gets above freezing. In collegetown, we received EIGHT inches of snow today so far and classes were called off after my 8am class for today. My early childhood teacher has already cancelled class for tomorrow and so I don't have to worry about missing class.

Good Thursday to all my sweet peeps! If you live up North and are under snow...please stay warm. Here in good ol west Texas, we are expecting a nasty day as it snows and sleets and yes I will be careful on the roads. I will go ahead and say that today is going to be L-O-N-G as I am running off a little bit of sleep of today. I don't get it...I have been sleeping fine...oh well :o Life is good right now! Sure a few projects have been moved up to be due next week instead of 3/1...but I am at peace and NOT freaking out...what a concept!
This week, I am thankful for my:
even if my brother "jokes" about not wanting to talk when I call
* Sweet friends who just rock my world
* Seeing my hard work start to pay off
* Life that I live day in and out
Hope you all have an awesome Thursday and stay warm if you live somewhere that is covered in snow. The weekend is almost here...you can do it!

Right now, I am extremely excited and happy. Is the anticipation wearing on you? Well then I will tell ya why. After preparing a lesson plan on scarcity for third graders that I presented today, the grade was spectacular (her words, not mine) and I did everything correct. The funny thing about the lesson plan is that we had steps to follow and it was just a lot of typing/planning and not too difficult at all. SO I am happy and proud to admit it.
It is raining again. Oh how I love this weather...NOT! I don't mind the cold but this gloomy weather is making me nuts. Plus my shoes are wet and walking around in wet shoes is not fun.
Life, at the moment, is wonderful and I just had to share.

HOLD the drama
Friday, February 5, 2010
This week has been tough! I normally handle pressure, stress, and life pretty darn well but this week is like a slap in the face...literally!
The school newspaper has been having trouble with one of our editors and the editor and I finally had to sit her down this afternoon and have it out. It stunk...big time.
Tests & Projects overall consume my life right now and it is not fun!
My wireless internet refuses to work in my apartment...and it's driving me NUTS!
I have (the size of fire ants) black ants in my apartment and can't get rid of them.
Then one of my professors was chosen for jury duty this week and was out all week long. Problem: we have a HUGE presentation that was assigned Wednesday due Monday and I have no idea how to do it. Crud!
My week has been filled with multiple meetings and my head is about to pop!
I am only human people

Early Sunday morning I woke up to myself screaming out loud and drenched in a cold sweat. I then remembered and recalled that horrific nightmare that I hope to never have again. I live by myself and always make sure to lock both deadbolts before going to bed. But the nightmare seemed all too real as I recalled someone unlocking both deadbolts (one has no lock on the outside), creeping into my bedroom, and placing their hand on my head. I woke up with my eyes wide open and screaming. I then woke up! Both bolts were still locked.
Sure this was all a big nightmare but it scared the willies out of me. So even though I was OCD about making sure both deadbolts were bolted...now I will always double check even though I know they are bolted.
