The only other day I’ve taken off was to drive back to Kansas (a 14 hour drive) to see family for Christmas. I wanted some time to rejuvenate before the last month of school. It’s crazy how I’m almost done with my 2nd year of teaching.
I’m ready for the year to be over and get ready for next year. I can tell the kids are ready to be done, too. They are getting a little antsy lately. “A little” was a bit of an understatement. They are talking constantly!
Anway, enough about work. It’s my “me” day, so I have to stop thinking about work. I have spent my morning drinking coffee and watching “The New Adventures of Old Christine”. That show is so funny! I also got the dishes done and am now getting ready to clean up the rest of the house.
I also put up a really cool calendar I made in December. I found the idea on Pinterest and made it for my roommate for a promotion he got. He never got around to hanging it up in his office and it was just sitting on our dining room table.
He has now decided to go back to his old position and will most likely not be hanging it up at his work. I got tired of seeing just lying around and decided to attach some magnets to the back of it and hang it on our refrigerator.
The picture came out a little blurry. I swear it didn’t look that way when I took the picture. Go figure!
It is just a black plastic frame I bought at Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon. I used scrapbook paper and cut it into the squares and glue stick-ed them to the paper that came with the frame (I turned it over of course so it was white). Then I just use dry erase markers to write on it for each month. I love the way it came out.
Well, I guess I should get back to cleaning and enjoying my day. Hope you are enjoying your day, too!

I have had some very interesting sort of days lately. I found out yesterday that my credit card number had been stolen. My bank called me to see if I authorized 2 transactions that were made in Paris, France.
I, of course, didn't. They declined one for $102 but accepted one for $6. I had to file a claim on it to get my money back.
My bank also closed my bank card and are issuing me a new one. I'm now having to write checks everywhere - which I hate doing. It all has been a major hassle but I'm glad my bank caught it before it got out of control.
School was sort of crazy today. We had try outs for the Roswell Games. They divide up the students for try outs by the year they were born. I lucked out and my whole class had their try outs at the same time. That gave me 2 hours of free time to work in my classroom. It was wonderful!
Because of that, though, our whole day was a little out of wack. We ended up having P.E. in the afternoon - which we usually have in the morning. The students handled it pretty well, except for the constant talking.
Hopefully, tomorrow will be better. It's early release so that's a plus! :)
