I finally got good news about my job and a close friend is having a baby.
So the past 24 hours have been full of pretty great news.
Sadly, I also heard about a friend’s baby that is in critical condition at the hospital, and my step-grandpa passed away last Sunday and my great aunt passed away the same day, and my cousin’s baby has epilepsy and autism. It’s good to know there’s always bad news as well as good news.
Thanks God for the many blessings in life, and the trials that make us stronger in life, also. :)
I'm almost ready to submit my application to my school district for a teaching job...
and I need to go to training tonight from 6:30-7:30 at work. I’m dreading it. :( Blah.
Work sucked today. My kids were good this morning, then they slowly stopped listening to me and would not sit down/do activities or clean up. Then I got in trouble because corporate was visiting, and it was dumb. Ugh. 3 of my kids didn’t even sleep at nap time. At least I got to leave by 3:15…
I have training tomorrow night too, which means I will miss bible study and I never see my friends. Yay. Thursday I plan on visiting my parents and catching up on DVR’d shows like Hart of Dixie, Gossip Girl, 16 and Pregnant, How I Met Your Mother, etc.
All of my friends deserve to be truly happy. I hope they find it, either with a significant other or alone.
I wish I knew the right things to say to someone who is going through a difficult time in a relationship…but I don’t. I have almost no experience, and the experience I have was not depressing and barely mattered to me. (Okay, my love life is pathetic. I mean, the only dude I dated was a moron and I didn’t even like him towards the end. Everyone else I like never likes me back…or if they do, they never do anything about it. Lame.)
My niece and nephew are at Disney World for the first time. They are meeting Woody and Buzz Lightyear and Cinderella. I am so jealous.
I went when I was 5, but I never met any characters. It’s a life goal to meet Cinderella at some point.
Some days I think I’d go to Disney World on my honeymoon. I’m still a kid at heart, so it makes sense. I hope I never get too grown-up to stop loving princesses and sparkly things and Disney movies and spinning teacups.
all because I wanted to see Chris Lowell’s face and I don’t have my Veronica Mars season 3 DVDs at my house.
I forgot how adorable Dell is…but I hate how he likes Naomi. Yuck. It is disgusting.
Oh geez, my life. I mean, it’s Saturday, I’m 25 years old, and I’m sitting in bed watching Private Practice and eating Easter candy.
At least I have plans for tonight. The Hunger Games movie for the 3rd time and dinner with my buddies to celebrate Parker’s birthday. :)
No one cares. I just wanted to type something. It’s been too long since I’ve typed something not on my Iphone (I wasn’t even on my laptop for an entire week a couple weeks ago…what has happened to me?!).
Everyone i know is either in a relationship and happy, or contentedly single. I am neither. Yay me. I’m just gonna listen to Taylor Swift, then eat pizza with my bestest WHO IS GETTING MaRRIED IN A MONTH, then cry probably because The Vow is lovely and sad and why can’t I be in love? Gosh, I love everything about Valentine’s Day except that I’m single and alone.
New Year's Eve without a significant other is depressing...
and my mom lost my 2 nice dresses. Who moves someone else’s clothes and then loses them? SO RUDE.
Now I’m stressed because I only have one POSSIBLE outfit for tonight and I’m not ready at all to leave. I have great friends who always have a party on NYE, but everyone is dating or married, so I feel like a loser and it just sucks. My single friends are either going somewhere else or working. Ugh, I hate being discontent with my single status. Blah.
I had a good day. Today was one if those days where almost everyone slept, we had only 7 kids, I made lots of cool stuff for circle time, we colored and cut and danced. We started Beauty and the Beast. Kids cuddled with me, asked for hugs, and gave me kisses. I needed today after last week’s stress. And tomorrow I only work 7 hours! YES!!
The episode where Seth buys Summer and Anna the same Chrismukkah gifts and they both say they don’t wanna be friends with him breaks my heart. So that’s where I am tonight. That and listening to Ours by Taylor Swift on repeat. What is wrong with me?!
Yesterday my kiddos were playing/exploring in the sensory table full of soft things (cotton balls, stuffed animals, feathers…) and having a blast. A coworker walked in and said they were “spoiled” by us. She said it nicely, but I was just like “…WHAT? Sorry my kids are actually doing something stimulating for their senses which is what they need at 2-3 years old.” Why would we have sensory tables if it’s spoiling kids to use them? Why don’t our other teachers use them? What a waste of such a useful tool.
My kids also LOVE playing with shaving cream, and it’s so cute. Get messy with your children, it’s worth it (but only with help and hopefully not with 10 kids, haha).
I really can’t handle being around skinny girls who talk about how fat they are constantly. I must have been so annoying in high school when I was 90 pounds and complaining about my love handles. Love yourself for who you are. You’re beautiful.
There’s a plumber-type guy here putting in a new water-heater at my parent’s house, and he’s been here for over 2 hours. I’m sickly and haven’t showered and look gross, and I just really want to go to the bathroom and get some grape juice and brush my teeth. :(
Just bought 3 tickets to see Breaking Dawn Part 1 on Friday! I’ve never bought tickets online so hopefully it isn’t too weird. Excited even though I think Twilight is kinda ridiculous. It’s fun and that’s all that matters.
Today while taking the sheet off a mat after naptime, I realized it had the words Polyjuice Potion written all over it, with plants and the ingredients for the potion drawn on it. What?! I laughed and asked my coworker why we had sheets like that. She had no idea. Random Harry Potter moments make me happy.
In other terrific 2s news, a little girl (my faaaavorite, but shhh. I shouldn’t have favorites…) asked us to sing about her jacket, blankie, bracelet, hair, and shoes today. Precious moments are all that keep me going…it’s mostly dealing with biting and hitting and boys climbing everything and poop on the floor. Oy.
The kids are calling me Kasi now, which warms my heart. It’s adorable. One boy just walks around saying “hiiiii” constantly. I melt. <33333
I just ordered Gone with the Wind 70th anniversary DVD
Yay! I don’t know how I’ve managed to go all these years without the DVD of this movie. It’s absurd. I can’t wait until it gets here, but I wish it were already here so I could watch it while I’m sick.
