fun quizes

You Are a Yellow Crayon
Your world is colored with happy, warm, fun colors.You have a thoughtful and wise way about you. Some people might even consider you a genius.Charming and eloquent, you are able to get people to do things your way.While you seem spontaneous and free wheeling, you are calculating to the extreme.
Your color wheel opposite is purple. You both are charismatic leaders, but purple people act like you have no depth.

Your Biblical Name Is...

Odelia Amissa

You will not live to see the end of times.

busy is as busy does....

so work has been off to a good start :)

i am really enjoying the middle school (so far)...the sixth graders are cracking me up, though, because they all have a deer caught in the headlights look! every time i am in the hall i have 2-3 requests for locker help, and i don't know these lockers!! plus they are always late since they don't know their way around yet...

scrapping has been there...

i have been cleaning a little of my space up...and i bought some new goodies...and i am WANTING to scrap, but i just have not had the motivation to do any lately...friday i am going to a crop at FKS, so i will work on stuff then, plus saturday i am going on a scrap road trip with barb & kathy down to jackson, missouri, for a day long retreat full of classes :)

classes start this week!

i have an on-line course (already ready to go online) that i will pick the book up for on tuesday afternoon...i also have one in the room class -- tuesday nights, so that starts in 2 days...i think i am ready for it!!

i am going to a Cardinal's game on wednesday night with friends (renee, kathi & barb) and friday i will be meeting up with the family i am going to babysit over labor day dad's bell's palsy seems to be all better, we have new neighbors (across the street)...i like High School Musical 2, but not as much as the first one! the laundry is all done, i cleaned out my dresser and have even cleaned some of my room...i have shreaded almost every piece of junk mail that was lying around....

Your Brain is Green

Of all the brain types, yours has the most balance.
You are able to see all sides to most problems and are a good problem solver.
You need time to work out your thoughts, but you don't get stuck in bad thinking patterns.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about the future, philosophy, and relationships (both personal and intellectual).

i am just about done with my Ukraine 2007 album!! (and i have been home less than a month, lol)

i am waiting on some photos from the guy in charge -- group photos and such -- and those will be an opening page

i also still need to look through some photo CDs and see if i want to print any, if i do, i think they will just go in the photo pages i have, not a big ol' page...a lot easier & quicker!!

but, i am done with the photos i took & have (i do, though, think i need to finish a roll of film...maybe...)

no scrapping today

today i was running all over, so no scrapping for me!!

i started by going to office max to get some things for power hour (and my freebies as a teacher since it is one of their educator weekends)...

next i went to SSD's central office to drop off my tuition reimbursement form...i missed my exit the first time, so i had to loop all this crazy way (the exit nearest that i could have u-ied at is under construction)...

then i went home for a little bit to hang out with my dad and such...watched part of the cardinal's game...

i had a surprise dental appointment at 1:30! i had called them this mornign because of a cracked tooth that was driving me bonkers -- he looked at the x-ray from 2 weeks ago -- infection under the tooth! bleck!! so he poked in my mouth, said "you were right, it is cracked" -- then asked if i was doing anything today!! he was going to just take out the piece that was broken off, but it was cracked all the way down to the root (with no nerves because i had a root canal on this tooth 5 years ago) he pulled the tooth!!!! so, now i will end up with a double bridge instead of a bridge & crown...

after the dentist i went home for a little bit more, then headed back to the dogs...on the way, i stopped at another office max for a few other things & more freebies, lol

now i am just relaxing for a little bit and trying not to think about my missing tooth...i doubt the tooth fairy will come!!

prayers being lifted

i am so sad to see the bridge collapse in minnesota -- for no real apparent reason -- it is sad to see the fall, and it is scary to think why!

a few have died, so many injured, so many cars and people involved...

i have seen one post from a friend in the area, so i know beth is ok, but i am worried about my friend mark!!

prayers being sent, and i hope that everyone you know in the area is ok!!
