could not go to sleep last night. i played on my phone, i played the alphabet game in my head. i kept my eyes closed for two hours. i finally got up and took another allergy pill. could be a lot of things. i took a two hour nap yesterday and saturday. working in the yard saturday morning wore me out. i know those flower beds have not been touched in at least 2 years! Scout's getting a lot easier to take care of and i'm out of school right now, so i don't need as much sleep as i have been trying to get. and now that he's sleeping in his room, it's easier for all of us. gaudet's funeral starts in an hour. i decided not to go. it's just too much. between all the news coverage and the procession. i put my flag out, i'm praying for his family. and i'm staying home. but it was still on my mind last night. then, there's all the projects around here. i have blankets to make, a wreath to create, the regular housework, and i'd really like to clean out most of the house...ugh! 2 weeks til NYC!
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! (Scout has changed most of my interests, hobbies, and free time!)
