(in parentheses)

this is what life looks like in my neck of the woods. (and that yogurt on the table? divine.)

Did you guys know that on Teacher Prep Day's, when you conveniently get no school, teachers are ACTUALLY PREPPING? I didn't. I never knew that until I was a teacher. In my self-centered student world, I was just happy for the day off, never considering the work my teacher was doing.

(But to be honest, I don't mind coming into work with no kids... I can get lots of stuff done this way!)

Anyway, yesterday was kind of tough because I found out that my class actually didn't win a pizza party. I don't know if I told you guys about that on the blog, but I definitely announced it triumphantly on twitter, and now I have to hang my head in shame. I mean, they announced it on Friday, but then they decided to announce again that actually a first grade class had won. That just seems kind of shady to me, but I'm not in charge. I guess I'll just have to get over it, but I don't know if I can. This is kind of a low blow.

(maybe I should start asking for donations to a pizza fund on the internet, after explaining the tragedy in a sob story? start a whole new pizza fund blog?)

In other news, this morning on the way to school, I almost hit a lady who ran a red light in front of me! I mean, she stopped like she should at the light, and then she decided to go, like she decided it was a four way stop?

(And by almost hit, I mean I saw what was going to happen from about 200 yards away and started slowing down so it actually wasn't dramatic at all.)

I'm going home this weekend to make a whole bunch of crock pot freezer meals with my mom, and it might be the  most home-maker-ish thing I've ever done in my life. Mostly I'm excited to hang out with my mom. But I guess having a whole bunch of pre-made meals will be pretty great in the coming weeks as well.

(This is all assuming I find space for them in my freezer....)


(no really though, I'm not done. (name the song))

p.s. what are you doing this weekend????


  1. I am doing the whole slow cooker thing soon too! You should put up recipes of ones you make an d like!

  2. I should try making kale soup but had attended a baptism out of town.


Tell me your thoughts on the subject.
