I am a creature of habit

Its Wednesday, on Wednesdays I like to play WCW. So um I think I am gonna play. Hoping that will be ok with TKW... ya know I dont normally hijack people's games but like I said I am a creature of habit and on Wednesdays I like to play WCW. So here goes.... oh wait... I pick F or P, either of those will work with my picture. You can play too... just make up whatever rule you want and let me know so I can come see your pictures!

These are giant pollywogs or frogs. They were huge!!! Like the size of your fist! Crazy big, I had never seen anything like it.

Crying Buckets Over Here

My first ever blog read, my very favorite blog read, the reason I have this stupid blog, TKW has decided to ride off into the sunset (or snow drift...I am not sure which) and leave me without suitable reading material before work every morning. Now I know the world is full of bigger problems then what I am going to read...but wow... I am sad, sad, sad about this. It makes me kind of snicker at myself because I dont even know TKW's real name... and yet I feel like a friend is leaving. sigh. I read lots of blogs...I comment on a few... I have had "favorite" bloggers drop off the blogosphere before, I have even been sad about it, but not like this. This is depressing. Clearly I am too attached, but feelings are what they are. And so today...I am going to go off and sulk in a corner for awhile.

soda POP!

I dont know if I shared that I am a science teacher. I teach science grades 1 to 6. I love it...I mean LOVE it. I love sharing the need to question everything. Today we shook up soda and then opened it and watched it go everywhere. Kids LOVE this. I urge you to do it. Take your kids outside (or borrow some kids) get some cans or bottles of diet (less sticky) coke and go for it! So much fun. Oh and heres a tip. Get a bottle of soda, shake it up, open it....ooh...ahhhh. Ok now pour out a little bit, put the lid on and shake it you will really get an explosion! Enjoy!

Wild Card Wednesday... Wayback style

I give you sorority fun. I believe this was some kind of serenade. Clearly we were all suppose to wear black. I am the idiot in the front, sort of squatting, wearing a hideous leather jacket (stolen from an old boyfriend) and an insanely huge black bow in my hair. Sad as I look in this costume, sorority life provided hours of entertainment! (and a multitude of reasons to drink!)

Soccer Saturdays

So I have officially, once again, become a soccer mom. Let me say for the record, that I HATE sports. Hate to play them, mostly hate to watch them (the exception being NBA basketball- Go KINGS!) I never, ever thought in a million years I would have a girl child who liked sports, I never thought in a million years said girl child would be any good at sports (after all she has half my genes and I suck at all sports, I even suck at walking in a straight line, I am a natural born klutz...even at the age of 34 I still fall down and I am not always intoxicated at the time!!) BUT I do have a sports loving girl child and she loves soccer. LOVES it. And she is good! I know she is only seven, but she is awesome. I am in awe. And so every Saturday morning I get up, dress the boy, and we head out to the soccer field to watch the girl play....and heres the thing... I actually enjoy it!

Joyous Bathroom Fun

My friend the comode.... I have been hugging him for the past two days. That is hugging him when I wasnt cleaning up vomit from my two children. God decided I wasnt having nearly enough fun and gave me and my children the stomach flu. ALL AT THE SAME TIME!!! Extra fun.... you get to throw up, then clean up puke, then console sobbing children, change bedding, puke again, then the kids puke again...then you repeat! Over and over again. Its been a long couple of days.

Rosemary for Rememberance

Hard to believe its been 6 years. My thoughts are with those who paid the ultimate price and their loved ones who are still paying. May God Bless America

MMMMmmmm Lovin' From the Oven!

These are my annual welcome back to the first day of school cookies that I make for the rest of our teaching/support staff. I had so much fun putting these together. Especially making the little tags because I got to use my new toy. It is a die cut machine called the cuttlebug. It works fabulously, a million times better than my big red sizzix!

Wild Card Wednesday

Whumph!!! Thats the sound of me hitting the floor when i saw these....

Mr. Iamderby bought me flowers....for no apparent reason! Flowers for no reason! Now this might be the normal way of things at your place. Maybe your Mr. writes you sappy notes, brings you flowers, buys jewelery. If that describes your Mr. than you are a lucky girl and I hope you are counting your blessings. My Mr. has not a romantic bone in his body. He deems jewelery and flowers a waste of money. Why did I marry him you ask? (Aside from the fact I was in LUUUUUVVV) Well he reeled me in with jewelry and flowers (Kinda like I lured him in with promises of homecooked meals and clean house) Yah none of those things continued on after the wedding vows were said.
Anyhow.... I came home from work and there they were, flowers for no reason at all. After I got over looking at him like he had grown another head, I thanked him profusely and moved those flowers to a prominent postition, where I plan to gaze at them until they are dried up little stalks, because who knows when I might get more!

September??? How did it get to be September???

So here we are, September! Time for me to go back to work and enjoy another year educating our nations' youth! I love my job, I love teaching. I just hate getting up for work everyday! Gone are the days of hard indecision...such as should I go to the gym now or after lunch? Should I take the children to the pool or just turn on the hose? Oh well, all good things must end sometime.

I leave you with some pictures from my pretty new calendar. This is the calendar I hang in my classroom. Its fairly small, 6x12. I love making these things!
