shoes & stuff

so i bought 3 pairs of shoes in 2 days! 1 pair of black mary jane crocs and 2 pairs of ROCKETDOGS! they are SO comfortable!!

last week was emotionally draining with the last day with kids on thursday and my girl moving to california this summer -- i will miss her so much! we did nothing really, watched some movies, field day, special lunches & breakfasts, etc etc etc

friday i went to a crop -- it ends at 11, i left at 9 because i was so tired!!! BUT, i did finish 4 pages :)

saturday i attempted the DMV (again) -- i checked their website before i left just in case they were closed for memorial day and the website just had hours open (including saturdays) -- and they were CLOSED -- sucks to get up early & use gas to go someplace that is closed and there was no way to know until you got there...

oh well! it is summer now & i am suppose to be getting ready for church, so toodles!

what's been happening...

1) i am FINALLY signed up for my summer class! it has only taken a month or more!

2) the DMV sucks more than any vaccuum we have ever owned!! if they would just have CLEAR lists/instructions/etc available online or on the documents you have so you would know what to have and why, it would be MUCH easier! all i need to do is switch the title on my car...

3) 2 more days of school left with kids...the one day cleaning, etc

4) i have more info & fun craft stuff for ukraine! woohoo! we are at a NEW congregation doing VBS!!

5) my room & house are a mess so i am happy to have time off soon

6) i WON a swap at croppers cottage! it was for dancing with the stars -- i picked apollo & he won! so i win a cool assortment of goodies :)

7) i have a pirate themed kids camp coming up at For Keeps Sake -- 4 days a week, 3 different weeks -- we are making: a door sign, a treasure box, a small album, a picture frame and a coaster album! it will be a lot of fun!!

8) nothing much else, i don't think...

Your Quirk Factor: 57%

You're a pretty quirky person, but you're just normal enough to hide it.
Congratulations - you've fooled other people into thinking you're just like them!

2 walks i am doing

if you can help in any way, please do. if you can not support with money at this time, please remember these two causes in your prayers.

I have signed up to do the Rockwood Relay for Life in early June! You can support this relay for CANCER by clicking here and seeing more about the cause, event and making a donation (no matter the size) to support the cause! Right now I have a goal of $100, but I am hoping to far surpass that!!!

happy NSD!

Happy National Scrapbook Day!

another reason i love my current job....

so i went to my old work's spring fling with a couple of friends -- to say hi to those we used to work with and give ian a chance to play -- i walked by (and made eye contact with) my former boss (ie the preschool director) no less than 5 times -- she never ONCE said a word to me! how's that for service? would you want your kids to have a director like that?? she also said to my friend (who has not worked there in about 2 years) "i didn't realize you no longer worked here" -- this is quality?!!?!?
