I was tagged...

by my friend here goes. Sorry I took so long:)

10 years ago:I was transferring to OU to finish school.
Things on my to do list today: Work, tan, take care of some paperwork and put try to get my closets organized.
What would I do if I suddenly became a Billionaire?First of all, I would pay off all car, etc. Second, I would buy something really nice for my parents...whatever they chose. I would do the same for all of my grandparents. Last, I would give money to research for Autism. I would hopefully have some cash left over to take a very extended vacation somewhere sunny, and put the rest in the bank.
Three of my bad habits:1.) Popping my joints, and I mean every single one of them!
2.) Procrastination...I am really bad about this one.
3.) Pushing snooze over and over and over and over and joke. I hate waking up in the mornings.
5 jobs I have had
1)I coached gymnastics from the time I was 16 until I was out of college.
2)I worked for Universal Cheerleaders Association during the summer teaching cheerleading camps at different colleges.
3)I waited tables at Don Pablo's in Norman, OK
4)I taught special education for four years.
5)I teach second grade now.
Five things people don't know about me:
1.) I am a night owl.
2.) I'm not much for sweets, but I love me a chocolate shake or a hot fudge sundae from Braum's.
3.) My favorite thing to do on a day off is to take a very long, very hot bubble bath while I read a book.
4.) I love to watch VH1...I know, it's pitiful!
5) I am a sucker if you get me to a makeup counter:)

So there you have may or may not have known these things from other tags. Anyone who would like to join in is tagged!!!

that everyone has a great week, and that we have some spring-like temeratures...finally:) Looks like today and tomorrow will be perfect days for going on a long, long walk:) That is my favorite thing about spring...getting to start enjoying fresh air, sunshine, and warmth after a long winter...I don't like daylight saving's time in the spring because I lose an hour of sleep. But I do like the extra hours of sunlight that it brings to the afternoon/evening. Have a great day!

Another Day Off...

for snow. We are talking about having Saturday school a few times to make up some days. I can't stand the thought of school on Saturday, but what I can't stand even more, is the thought of school in June when it is hot outside, and all I want to do is be in the sunshine, and enjoy summer. It is my favorite time of the year. I am looking forward to that season so much. I have been running and running so much that I just really need a break. I have so many things to do, and I just can't seem to find the time or the energy to get them done. Maybe spring break will help with that. Anyways...

Here are a few recent pictures. I have more, but blogger seems to be extrememly slow today, and I just don't have a lot of patience because I have lots of stuff to get done today. If I use this snow day well, it could definitely give me some time to be productive. There is not a speckle of snow here. So I am going to get out and take care of some errands I need to run. Hopefully I'll have time to post some more pictures in the next few days. They are on my computer now. That seems to be half the battle for me. So maybe that will help:) Have a good day!!!

Hope everyone...

had a good weekend! I know I sure did. Having Bethany here was so very nice this weekend. I have some pics to post, but just haven't gotten around to it quite yet. Our weekend started off a little rough. On Friday, we were getting ready to go start running around, when all of a sudden, I stepped in standing water...and it was everywhere. The carpet was drenched, and the kitchen had water standing everywhere! I had started a load of laundry, and apparently, my washer has had it. It has been giving me trouble for the past month, not draining the water when it spins, and stuff like that. So Bethany and I shop-vacced for a couple of hours, then pointed fans toward the carpet so it could continue to dry out. What a mess!!! It seems to be mostly dry now though. I guess I'll be checking out washers and dryers this week. YUCK!!! I am really glad we were still there when it happened though. We were just about to take off. So it could have been MUCH worse than it was!!! I'll post some pictures later, and please pray that we don't get this weather they are speaking of...more snow/ice!!!
