It's my birthday!! :)

And I can't sleep in anymore!! BAH!! It's NOT because I'm getting old... it's because of my work schedule, going to sleep the same time MrG does and because I'm only supposed to sleep on my sides now. Not the most fun but I can deal with it - the reward in the end is way better than sleeping well. :)

I hope everyone has a great weekend. :) Regular blogging will resume - I PROMISE (again)!!!

I hit 16 weeks yesterday. Here's the picture I took.

Friday, May 21, 2010


It's the day that we all look forward to (and any teacher that says they DON'T look forward to it is a big fat liar). It's also the day that you think will never come.


I hope I don't have many kids today. The ones I DO have I plan on putting to work for me to get everything packed up and stored for summer. Middle schoolers are so eager to help all the time (so are elementary kids for that matter). They love feeling needed and important. I'm going to make them feel both today and then I'll give them candy as an extra benefit to their emotional satisfaction. :)

Turning in your keys is like finally turning in that research paper in college you stayed up all night long working on because you waited until the last minute to work on it. (Don't act like you never did that too.) That feeling and then walking out is pure awesome.

15 weeks today, anniversary tomorrow, and my birthday next week. :) I love May.

You might be pregnant if...

(a post title I never thought I'd make).

seeing a scene from a movie set in Texas with a mariachi band makes you crave Mexican food. Now that's pretty embarrassing right there.

I triple duper promise I will be back in the blogging action starting say... this weekend-ish. Today and Friday are my last two days of school with students which is ridiculous. Why not let the teacher work day be on Friday so the kids don't have to come back? I have no idea. It's silly. What's more silly is that Friday is report card day but it's a FULL DAY. BAH!

So I can practically TASTE summer break but I have a few more days to live through.

I will be 15 weeks on Friday and I have a doctor appointment this afternoon. I won't have an ultrasound this time but I'm hoping for one next month.

Also since I've been gone I finally got MrG to agree to go Team Green (waiting to find the gender when the baby is born). YAY!!!!!!

Also, I was in a car accident last week. I hit a deer but I'm fine. My car should (hopefully) be fixed by the end of the week.

I'll go into detail on all of that and post a belly pic soon. :)

Skittles at 7:43 am

What? They're fruit(y) and the baby wants them! :)

I have this one co-irker who has been driving me more crazy than the children have the past 3 weeks or so. He has driven me insane all through the play I helped him with, his concert I sold tickets for last night and now... today.

He is taking his kids (along with my friend another teacher) on a field trip. They've been planning this for a while now. When you're going to be out you have to find your own sub. Wanna guess when he started looking for one? LAST NIGHT. Not only is it next to impossible to find a sub the night before but there's a huge festival one town over that a lot of teachers take off for (or the subs go to themselves).

7:00 am he walks down the hall and asks if I've gotten his note. Um... No? He "couldn't find a sub" so he needs me, the art teacher and the dance teacher to take his kids!! HE waited until the last minute so WE have to save his rear by taking on additional students (besides our own) for him all day long.

::deep breath::

9 more days... 9 more days...

On MUCH happier news - today I'm 13 weeks along!! That means I'm starting 2nd Trimester. I can't even believe I'm typing this. I never thought I'd get a BFP let alone be in 2nd Trimester.

So on top of my great day with BabyG I have a craptastic co-irker. I think I need ice cream after school... or Starbucks... or both. ;)
