Seriously--All I really want to do is decorate my blog. I've finally learned how to do the fancy header--Thanks Donna!!
I have had a serious case of blog block. I have enjoyed reading other people's blog (especially my sister's new blog) but I have anxiety when logging in-- even to comment. Is is fear of failure, fear of not being able to update regularly, or perfection? Do I need to make it funny, serious, insightful (I'm not really insightful) meaningful or inspirational? Oh, the stress! I think about silly things like, do I need a sign off, a cute little ending, because that would be really cute! I DON'T KNOW, BUT IT'S CRAZY!!!!! I've learned from reading other blogs that I need to look at it as a scrapbook or journal. OKAY--I'll try!!
DVR--Love it!! I'm catching up on all the TV programs I have been missing. I now know what's happening on DAYS (awful, I know), Grey's, and Private Practice. I now have 6 episode's of Thomas the Tank Engine readily available to show at any time without scratching DVDs--life is great!!!
Random thought---I think school should start at 9:30 every day! That would be cool.
Do pirates yell, " irrr" or "arrr" I usually have some kind of saying when teaching my phonics phonograms. (ir, er, ur / ar like in car) So I'm teaching and I say, "When you see the er, ir or ur in a word think irrr like a pirate." Yep, I was proud of myself and thought it was kinda cute when a child in back blurts out, "I think a pirate says arrrr like in car." Well, what do you think?!!
It's been a week, and I still have not got over my sinus (head cold) infection. I still cannot hear well, and I feel as though I am talking through a tube! I am SO ready to feel better.
Thanks girls for the good time last Thursday night. Mamma Mia soundtrack is now on my i-pod!! It is so good for the soul to get out and be with friends!!
Kaleb's new saying-"no want to" So I have taken it on as my mantra. Grading--no want to, washing laundry--no want to, cleaning house--no want to, going to school--no want to, update blog--no want to. I then want to be sent to my chair to cry and kick my legs. Afterwards, I want a red popsicle to make it all better!! Ah--the life of a 22 month old!!
New Years Resolution #4--Update Blog more often. CHECK--now I can go have my red popsicle!
Like sands through the hour glass, so are the days of our lives!!!!
