that is how i feel right now -- blah! i have a fever (100.4 at last check), so i have called in to work for tomorrow...hopefully this will be a quick bug and i will feel better soon!!

since my last post:
** i finished all my charms on thursday and they will be mailed this week!
** i had a second snow day on friday
** friday night i was at a crop with my friends and finished 7 pages, and some people got upset because we were having fun and they weren't!
** saturday i road tripped with those same friends to quincy, illinois, to visit a different scrapbook store and make a fun acrylic album! all i need to do is print pictures and my book will be done!
** today i taught power hour and felt like crap...i also have been working on a paper that is due at tomorrow night's class, but if i still have a fever i doubt i will go and she may have to settle for an emailed paper! that also means i would have to create a 5 minute presentation on something with educational psychology, but i don't think that would be too bad...

now i am going to call the teacher i work with and take some tylenol in hopes of beating this fever!!

snow & ice...

so i got up this morning, got completely ready for work, left over 10 minutes early (really giving myself over 20 minutes since i always get there early) -- within a minute, my windshield was ICED over (my car had been in the garage)...i only started to slide once! you can't see the lines of the road, i saw NO SALT TRUCKS!

i got not even half way to work and they did a traffic report on the radio -- dozens of accidents, and a bunch were on the road i need to take!! so i turned at the closest light, called one of the people i work with, and said "i am not going to be there today - the roads suck!" so i slowly drove home, and THEN i get a call saying "NO SCHOOL!"

so i have the day to do as i please, but i am up and ready and probably not going to go back to sleep (maybe a nap later, lol)...

tiring day!

yesterday (a friday!) i was in bed and asleep by 10!! what a life i lead! LOL

today i have been so busy, but it is good -- i ran a bunch of errands (bought 2 baby gifts and the lobster claws i needed for my charms for a swap i am in), finished all the laundry, worked on the charms for the swap, and started (almost completed!) creating a gift for a friend ;)

my fingers are sore from the charms! i am wrapping wire around the piece i inked & stamped and then adding the lobster claw clasp -- i have poked myself more than a few times, and once i even bled (but not to worry, i did not bleed on any of the charms!) -- i am completely done with 15 out of 82 -- they are inked, stamped, wired, and bagged with a label! the rest of the charms are inked, about 60 more are stamped as well...18% completely done!

that's what's happening in my life...

toodles from a rainy st. louis!

check it off the list!

today i stayed home sick -- i thought i might have pink eye! but it was just irritated (badly) but now my eye feels so much better, and after i went back to sleep, it wasn't pink anymore! yay me!!

but, this sick day was much needed! i got quite a bit done...including: paying my car insurance for the next 6 months, e-filing my taxes, teaching a mad science class and all sorts of other (boring) stuff...

i need to get back into the swing of this blog thing, not much to write about in my life, so i guess i need to find something exciting in the life to write about!!! any suggestions, lol??

i've been tagged!

my lovely friend, paula, from argentina tagged me!

It's the Middle Name Game.

I have to post the rules before I give my answers so here goes:
List one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name.
Each fact must begin with that letter.
If you don't have a middle name use your maiden name.
If you're tagged you need to up-date your blog with your middle name and answers.
At the end of your post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name.
Oh and don't forget to leave them a comment and tell them they've been tagged.
Here goes.....

of course, i have a LONG middle name!!

E - educated (and still going)
L - loving
I - incouragable
Z - zany
A - authentic -- i am ME
B - beautiful (just ask the boy i work with! he tells me so every day!)
E - eager to please (trust me!)
T - trustworthy
H - honest
