i got my socks in the mail from the swap this week. i'll take pictures sometime this weekend. i'm not sure where my camera is right now. i have two ideas for the masquerade ball. they haven't advertised it at school yet, but i think they're still having it. yesterday was great. i went to a workshop that started at 9 and was over at 2. and we had 1 1/2 hours for lunch! i got to take a nap for over two hours and i'm halfway finished with twilight now. to balance out reading that...i ordered 9 books online today and it was only $24! yea for being a teacher and getting the cheap catalogs at school! every thing i ordered is either stuff i read in high school and college or stuff i probably SHOULD have read in college. i never really was too impressed with kc's english department. utt was WAY better. today was going ok until i left my kids just long enough for a quick trip to the restroom and when i got back....my room smelled like matches! one kid finally said he found a match on the floor and tried to strike it on a girl's notebook...not buying it! my room gets cleaned between 4th and 5th. my 5th period is good enough that if they had seen a match on the floor, they would have turned it in to me. the match was supposedly found 6th period. i never did find out what really happened. i just emailed the assistant principal and gave him everyone's name from that class and what they told me. i really think one of them was totally clueless. he never knows what's going on anytime. gotta go bundle up and get ready for the football game!
i'm a Christian, wife, mom to the most awesome kid...ever, daughter, sister, texan, teacher, survivor of my grandparents :), niece, cousin, sister-in-law, daughter-in-law, individual that was probably born in the wrong time. i live in a too-big for me house with my husband and our son and some people think i'm spoiled because my mom cleans our house. but, actually, i was spoiled way before that! i teach 4th grade ela and texas history...yes, that means the dreaded staar test! i like being just a little too weird for people around here, taking pictures, modpodging everything, shopping, and music!
