The New Semester

It's like the first day of school all over again. Since I teach a semester class, I get new students twice a year. These kids look like a great new bunch!! I'm excited to get started since I feel better about all my new modules and I think I have a better handle on what I need to do. It was neat watching the students during the inaguration (sp?) today. They were attentive and asked great questions about the event and the future. Gosh I love how their minds work!!!

I didn't feel so good this weekend... it was a three day weekend, to boot!! I think since it has been hot and then cold and then hot again, here, it's messing with my system. But who am I to complain, cold here is in the 40's!!! Still cold to me, anyway.

This yearbook deadline is knocking me for a loop and it seems that's all I can think about. I haven't scrapped in at least a week and I know I need to. I really need to scrap since that always makes me feel better. I took some AWESOME pictures from Chelsea's birthday and I think they will make for some fantastic LO's. I've got a short day tomorrow, so I will try a LO or two before bed. If I get them done, I certainly will post here.

The blog train at DigitalCandy.us starts soon, so be on the lookout for that. I'm going to do some quick pages for the train!!! WOOT!!!!!

Bye for now... off to rest these achy bones. Nitey night!!

Can't sleep

The call to the principal's office was nothing important. Nothing that I hadn't already handled, anyway. It certainly wasn't something that couldn't have been handled in an email. But... then there are those people who have to feel SOOO important. Communication is a huge issue at this school with all but one of my Asst. Principals so I just chalk it up to a lot of self importance with very little substance... sounds like inspiration for a layout, I do declare!!!

Well, Boo is bugging me to go out!!! Gonna try to get another hour or so of sleep. Then it's back to the stress of deadline week... gotta love the yearbook!!!!!

What a day...

Back to school after 2 weeks and it was very, VERY busy!! Of course my email box was full and I didn't realize until it was too late that one of my Asst. Principal's needed to see me today. Well, I worked straight through my planning and lunch and when I finally packed up, it was well after 5:00 (contract time ends at 4:15). I guess I'll have better luck tomorrow!! Getting called to the principal's office... BLECH!!!!!

The weather has been tremendous, 70's during the day and 60's at night, but that makes for a terrible allergy season. So it's itchy eyes, runny nose and all the other fun stuff. But then again, shorts and a t-shirt in January... not to shabby.

It's Chelsea's 17th birthday tomorrow and I won't even see her but for an hour or so. But the big celebration will be this weekend. So I still have a little more time. I can't believe how fast the time flies.

Well, it's time to get to bed, today really wore me out. Sorry for being so boring today. I'll try to learn some more on here tomorrow. I do like being on here and of couse, I LOVE learning new things!!

Getting the hang of this...

Well, after staying up until the wee hours of the morning this morning, I am slowly --- very S-L-O-W-L-Y -- getting the hang of this blogging thing. Yes, I am a lifelong learner...

This is for the Candy Mold Challenge on the Digital Candy site. For the first one I used Amanda Dykan's Paris in the Spring kit and the challenge template from Fairytale Studios. Both these designers have shops at Digital Candy. Here's what I created today:

The second one is the DC Sweet Tart kit for January and it's called Winter Cabin. I used the Brag Book template from Fairytale Studios for this one:

Thanks for looking!!! Hope to see you here again soon!!
