Really?? Another Change, I should have known....

I had a long conversation with a wonderful friend today. I learned she was getting married (congrats--on the 4th time (I think)) HAHA! and that I will not be teaching what I had planned on all summer long. I always said that there is reasons for things even if they are not clear at the time. So maybe, this will be one. Is it worth it to talk to the principal and even ask why? Then, I ask myself-Do I really need to be a teacher-is that my true calling and my first instinct is YES! So let be what be and just plan on a good start of school. 

I feel that I am rambling and not making any sense, maybe it is a good thing that I wont be teaching Langauage. HAHA!

So much to do, so little time to do it. So I must lay at the pool!

That's my moto today!! I woke up at 4:00 am and began my day with work. I seriously doubt that a teacher really ever has summers off. I plan, plan, and then plan some more. One might say, "well at least you don't have to do much planning during school year". Well to that I stick my tongue out to. I never stop planning, oh wait, yes I do because I have to GRADE papers!!

So, then I add to my plate selling jewelry. What was I thinking? That was just it, I was thinking and I am excited and must love teaching.

I did get 7 parties scheduled for Fall. Who ever said that life was simple & easy. I don't know if I would enjoy such a life!! Pin It Pin It

Rub, a dub, dube--Two guys in a tube!

So yesterday, ended up not being a wash out! We had an absolutely wonderful time on the lake with my family! Finally, Jody and Beth got to come out with us!

I also had a first yesterday! I went through a Dam Lock. It was really neat. Ethan was little scared, but overall it was something that I am glad we did.

Today will be filled with school work, school work, and some more school work. Ethan is already laying in bed with me will I am working! It looks like rain, so I wont be tooo upset about working today and not spending it in the pool. Pin It Pin It

I wake up in the morning feeling like ....

Ugh! I hate waking up in the early morning
Hours, like 2 am and staying up until 4:45 restless. We should have a busy day today. I told
The boys NO boat until house is clean. So we
Will see if and when we will go. Mark has the tube strapped on, so maybe that will motivated them some.

just one hour from the time I posted this, we were on the water. Note to self-WOW!! Men can move fast when they have a motivation. Great time on the water, Andrew flew up off the tube!! Did a good deed today, rescued a stranded Jet-skier and took him to the boat ramp. Kinda of scared at first, not sure if he was the river version of THE HITCHIKER! you never know!

Got home in time to cook a nice dinner and eat with the family, take a shower, and watch some T.V. 

Mark has found a new love, he just stares at the boat. He will say, are you happy too? I tell him, I will be when we sell the pontoon.!! Pin It Pin It

Summer's Ending and there are many things popping up new!

I am now an official Cookie Lee Consultant!! Yeah, for me. I finally decided to put something that I have wanted to do for a long time into action!!. I am excited and can't wait to really start doing it.

Check it out!!
With the end of summer drawing near, my dear hubby decides that he wants a ski boat! It would have been great to have it in June! :-) But I a looking forward to having many fun filled outings on it. We are going to pick up tomorrow afternoon.

With Back To School commericals and ads everywhere you look, I am trying to get back in teacher mode. I do think that teachers are alot like their students; they LOOOOOOOVe their summer break! I am really going to miss time spent with my boys. They are growing up so fast; and I am so blessed to have summers with them. JUST SAY NO to year around school.

That should do it for tonight- We are about to watch Big Brother and then Rango!! I gotta get me some Johnny Depp! Pin It Pin It
