a week...

i know, bad blogger!

this past week was my final observation -- seminar is finished this coming friday, and with it, the turning in of the entire teacher work sample...i will be very happy come friday when i am finished with student teaching, but i will be sad to be leaving the kids i have worked with for the past 16 weeks...

wednesday was an early release at school, and the traditional lunch at hunan royale with mary beth & meghan! meghan & i also went to the mall after lunch...

thursday we spent thanksgiving dinner with my godparents -- as we have every year since my mom passed is fun to see the kids growing up year to year...

friday was baking for saturday's cookies with santa party! good food, good friends, fun times...

sunday, today, was church & sunday school & church decorating...and sitting at home being sick. i hate being sick. i am already tired of this cold, and it is only the first day!! gr!! but, i feel okay, just "off"....

oh well!

9 days...


last week was busy in some ways, and not much in others...i spent a day doing observations (i am done with my intensives)...homework has been getting done...time was spent with friends & family...a baby shower was given (and the baby born!) & laundry & mad science have filled my days...and HARRY POTTER came out, so that was a wonderful night out!!

just about 8 days left of student teaching, then back to will be hard leaving & getting back into the swing of things at work, but i miss being there (and the paycheck)...

less than a month until my birthday...a tiny bit over a month until christmas...and a bust weekend coming with thanksgiving & a cookies with santa party...

life is so nice.

life comes quickly...

so life is moving quickly -- less than a month until i am finished with student teaching!! i am basically finished with my intensive time, so i am a lot more relaxed...however, i am now going to be doing observations and finishing up my teacher work sample...i also need to send off for transcripts and get fingerprinted again for the state...then, come january or february i will have my certification/license number!! woohoo!!!

so it took them awhile to get to my car, but i got an oil change, a front-end alignment, new wiper blades, and topped off leaks found, and now the troublesome light is out -- so it was just a low fluid level making the sensor go wonky...

spent the afternoon with meghan -- went to hobby lobby, target, a craft fair, and out to she is laying down ready for bed on the couch, and i am heading to bed soon, too, to take advantage of the extra hour of sleep!!!

car issues

my car is being a pain in the tomorrow it is going to dobbs for a checkup...hope everything ends up okay (or fixable on the cheap!!)


Wednesday, November 03, 2010


intensives are almost over -- i hand the reigns back to my cooperating teacher -- i get my life back a little more -- this isn't as "difficult" as some try to make it sound...but the no pay is what is such a killer!! aren't we all motivated by something? right now i am motivated by not much of anything (it would be very hard to fail at this point)...a paycheck would be wonderful!!

anyone know of a middle school language arts job opening soon????

So I voted today -- as I have in every election since I turned 18. That year was a presidential election -- 1 month BEFORE my birthday...however, since then I have gone every time and voted.

I hope you all voted, too!!
