A Weekend In Charleston

I went to Charleston yesterday after work to visit my best friend. We had a BLAST! We went to this place called Bottles and Brushes. You pay a fee and they provide all the things you need as well as the teacher who goes step by step for us to create a "masterpiece". It was so much fun!
Here I am... ready to go. Apron on and everything provided... count me in!

Here's Katie... she was excited and ready to go, too!

We were so excited about our final masterpieces that we had someone take our pictures with them!

Here's a view of mine closer- up.

Sometimes it is nice to just get away for the night and have some time with a best friend just talking and laughing. It was so great to see Katie! We talk almost every day, but we both have very busy lives so we do not get to see each other very much. It's so nice when we do, though!

Of course, another great part of being gone is coming home. My sweet MilShelb were so happy to see me! :) I missed them!

These Days

I just feel so busy these days. I hardly have a moment to breathe. I know that's normal now that I'm a "workin' girl" but it doesn't make it any better! lol
I do have to say that I am really enjoying the school year so far. There have been many challenges, but I'm always up for a challenge. I think it's the problem solver in me.
I have been feeling like I have been neglecting Milly and Shelby. I certainly don't mean to, but I just have such limited time with them. I know that most dogs have people who work all day and this is really a normal dog life- but it's not their "normal" life. They are used to having me and Jake home most of the time. Jake is still home with them right now and I can tell they are relying on him more (as they should) and, to be honest, it makes me a tad jealous. I know we all have had to make changes and will continue to adjust as the year goes on... I'm just so surrounded by changes right now that sometimes I just want something old and normal and comforting. Ya know?
I have spent nearly my entire Saturday working on school stuff. Not so fun, but I feel very proud of myself for having accomplished so much in such a short time. I tend to be one who starts things, walks away, forgets what I was doing, and figures it out later that week when I find the pile of papers I left randomly somewhere and Jake put away. So, the fact that I have fully accomplished four major school projects this weekend is awesome!
I hope that tomorrow I will be able to relax and enjoy my weekend. We'll see.
I know I'm not on here much anymore, but I appreciate that you still read and some leave comments, etc. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!!

Thankful Thursday

I am so thankful for my new job. I am so blessed to have a place to go everyday, do something I love, help children to learn and grow... and the best part is that they pay me for it! You know what they say, "if you pick a job you love you'll never have to work a day in your life."

So Sorry!

I have been so busy with moving and setting up my classroom that I have not really had much time to post... plus, we didn't have internet for over a week. Anyhow, I certainly plan to update soon!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
