I am off!

I am headed to Fl tomorrow to see Charlene, my BFF from college. And as a bonus, I am eating breakfast with my sister in the Orlando airport! She lives there (Orlando, not the airport! :-) ),and I have a 3 hour layover, so she is meeting me for breakfast! I am excited about that too. I really wish I lived closer to my fam. SO I am off to make sure everyone has clean socks and undies before I go!!!

I joined facebook last night..... that can suck your time away!!! So if you see me on your list, ask me to be your friend!!!!! And I like flair, but need to play around with it some more.

One more thing.... I think all students who enter 7th or 8th grade automatically loose some brain cells.... what a group.... ( no offense to any of you who have children that age! One on one they seem to be fine, but put 30 of them in a room together... esp. for an AG class-- mild to severe cases of the stupids break out!!)No scrapping today. I earned my money!!

Have a great weekend!

You will only understand this if you were in my room.....

in high school. I had a water bed with a 1 ft. ledge around it. If you laid on the floor, you could see it. I don't remember when I started to write on it but I did. And my friends who stayed over. I don't remember liking Ted and Troy so much, but I guess I did (they never liked me back, but I am over it now :-) )
My Dad found the wood out in the barn and was using it for something.He actually cut around the words to save it for me! I took pictures before I left..... So, my SEHS friends... Enjoy!.. The Waltons are mentioned... thought that was funny since it was just mentioned on Alisa's blog!

BTW, Who is Pete? Daryl Suddeth? And has anyone heard from Sean? This brought back a flood of memories! Apryl- why aren't you on it? Was 1987 a bad year for us?? :-)

What goes around.....

I have vivid memories of rolling my eyes and asking "what kind of music is that?" when hearing what my parents were listening too. Back then, the oldies were the 50's and 60's. It took me a few years, but I finally learned to like most of it.
Today I was in the car with Hannah.I normally have the radio on the Christian station, or country or some other contemporary station but today I went through the stations and stopped on an "oldies" station--- which now play 70's and 80's music. I listened for a while, and "Ladies' Night" came on. Granted, it isn't a song I remember from high school or anything, but I still know it and started singing it. Hannah looked at me and said "Is that rap from the 1700's?" I think she meant 70's:). Anyway, I told her it is just an old song. Then later, Madonna's "Material Girl" came on. She said "Who is that??" I told her, and she said "who?" And then promptly turned up the volume on her ipod. Later she even asked "Is Madonna still alive?" Maybe she will enjoy it in a few years..... I am getting old.

I am the best mom ever!!

Holden's class has snack every day, and the kids take turns bringing in something for everyone. Most of the time it is just gummies or goldfish.One day Holden was so excited... some mom sent in DRINKS with the snack.... he was just thrilled. So when his snack day rolled around, guess what I did??!! Yep- became the best mom ever because I sent in Caprisuns with his snack! Doesn't take a whole lot to make that boy happy!!!

I am subbing right now- can't you tell- and have 2 off blocks! And one of them is 4th, which means I am done at 1:00! So I will go by SE and deliver the aprons (sorry they stayed in my van last week, Lisa!) And do some errands ( I already went to target during 2nd block!), then pick up the kiddos! Have a great day!!
