The first two days…

The first two days…

Yes.  I am blessed.  The last two days back at a job I love have been blessings.

Some teachers (and other people who have to) go through meetings get frustrated and upset at times.  They worry and fret over things, because the boss is not saying what they want or a co-worker won’t stop asking questions.  Well, I recognize the fact that we are all different people, different personalities and bodies.  We have difference of opinions, mind-sets and medication.  Haha!

I LOVE THOSE DIFFERENCES!  If we were all the same…how would this world be!?!  We’d all like bananas and the color green would be our fave.  How would that even work?  Yes, we would all agree, but how would that help move anything forward.  Plain and simple, it wouldn’t.  Duhh.

Ok, I know that some of those meetings go on and on because someone can’t let go of a point. I get it. But instead of getting upset, I giggle.  NOT AUDIBLY; although, sometimes a weird sound comes out from trying to stifle the giggle.  I don’t giggle because I’m making fun…I giggle because, as I said up there…I recognize that we are all different.  I giggle with joy that GOD MADE US THAT WAY!

I do admit, I threatened a couple of co-workers with a good ole body slam yesterday, but all in fun OF COURSE. (if I could actually body slam them..that would be entertaining tho!  haha!)

Back to my original point: I AM BLESSED.  Thank You God for these first two days!!!  Excited to see what this third one holds and the many more to come.  Excitement really doesn’t even begin to describe my expectancy!

It’s NOT Friday!?!

It’s the middle of the week and it’s felt like a Friday all day.  I certainly love every day of the week (I’m an equal opportunity kinda gal), but Friday just always seems a little FREE-ER …I know you know the feeling.  I’m really unsure why today felt like Friday, but here’s my bullet form theories…

  • I started teaching my FAVORITE unit in Art I today: ANIMATION! I love Walt DISNEY AND Mickey and they are all up in that lesson plan. 
  • My sculpture class is doing plaster casting of their hands and it’s a super fun experience to have with them. I love my job!
  • The Spaghetti dinner and 5K events that took a lot of time and energy to put together was completed last weekend.  YAY!
  • My girl child got an EXCELLENT report card today, found out she had a .439 batting average for her softball season this year and I’m just so proud of that kid!
  • I laughed out loud A LOT today. I always have fun at work because I love my job (did I say that already) and who I work with, but today just seemed more joy-filled for whatever reason.  Everyone was a comedian today!  Love that!
  • We are having company this weekend which always makes me get a little excited no matter who it is. I really like being a host. 
  • The sermon tonight at our Wednesday night meeting was all about how GOD loves us. I knew this, of course, but the way the preacher presented it really gave me a stronger outlook on the fact. GOD MADE THIS EARTH ESPECIALLY FOR US… He made us on purpose AND sacrificed His Son for us.  What more confirmation do we need!?!

Ok, there ya go.  I’m sure there are more reasons I could give for the feeling of “Friday” freedom I had all day today, but maybe I’ll save them for another blog. 

I hope for you a great “Friday” freedom kind of day… Even when it’s not Friday!

SooOOoooOOOoooo EMOTIONAL!?

emotions-297x300

Why am I soooooo emotional these days!?!

I have been wearing my feelings on my sleeve for several days now.  My baby blues tear up for what seems to be no reason at all.  I mean, it always has a reason, but at times it’s silly things.  I look at something that brings back some crazy memory that I haven’t thought of in, like, FOR- EV- ER, and here come the tears.  Someone says something hurtful–even to someone else and not directly to or about me and I get all weepy.   I see a sky full of awesomely puffy white clouds and I get misty over the amazing beauty.  What the what?!

What is up!?!

I am aware that this time of the year brings on certain emotions just because the school year is ending.  I will miss my seniors so much.  Even typing that makes me sniffle a little.  I do not like for the school year to end.  I know the seniors HAVE to graduate and I’m so proud that they are, but I will miss seeing them and being an almost constant part of their lives.  Don’t get me wrong, I definitely enjoy my summer…but I miss my job, my friends and my kiddos.  So, I know where some of the emotion comes from, but I’ve never remember it being THIS BAD.  I’m sure there are other aspects of my life that are contributing to the emotional roller coaster, but really, anything can get worse so, I see myself and my family as TOTALLY BLESSED.

I’m trying my hardest not to let this up and down of emotion affect my mood towards others.  I know at times others upset me with their moods or grumpiness, but I don’t want them to suffer for my craziness–ever.  That is a major goal of mine.  My friends and students don’t need to be burdened with something that bothers me.  I keep this in mind all the time!

I know some doctors might say my hormones are crazy or blame it on some chemical thing and prescribe some “fix”.  I am not against those types of things and believe there are some who totally benefit from that (and should really never miss a dose!), but I believe this emotional stuff will subside soon.

I just don’t know exactly why it’s so tough this year.

I’m just questioning it.  That’s all.  That is all this blog is doing today.

I’m not trying to reach out and say I’M SO SAD or I need some kind of mental help…this is NOTHING like that.   I mean, a hug might be ok, I guess… ALTHO, BEWARE– it might make me cry too!  HAHA!

I just don’t know why I’m SooOOoooOOOoooo (much more) EMOTIONAL this year!?!

COULD IT BE AGE!?  Naahhhhh.  HAHA!

Being a teacher…

Today was my first day back after summer break.  It was an amazing day.  It really was.  I’m not even being sarcastic at all.  I love what I do.  I love my coworkers, I love being a part of a team, I love my students and I love being useful–I KNOW GOD made me to do what I do.  Thank YOU God!  I’m so blessed to be able to have my dream job.

Here are some visuals I found this evening:

HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY…  ((actually, a friend posted this on my FB page because it reminded her of me..yay!))

SERIOUSLY, this is how I feel:

I’m not joking when I say I love my kids:

And I just thought this one was so funny!  Our cat looks like this dude and that is his obsession–getting in boxes of ANY size! ha!  (among his other talents of being a ninja cat)

What’s Important

WHAT’S IMPORTANT  By Me

GOD …believing in Him and not idols.  We have so many idols.  I strive to get closer to Him. 

Family…they are gifts that sometimes we abuse and we shouldn’t.  Ever. 

Friends …they are what keep us young and happy.  If your friends don’t make you happy, you need to find some different friends.

Health …physical and mental.  ((This one is so hard at times.))

Job …it’s so important to really love what you do.  If you don’t, CHANGE either your job or how you look at your job.  THE END.

Learning …keep doing this so your brain doesn’t become mush.

Hobbies …I like to keep busy.  Hobbies help keep your hands and minds busy doing good stuff.

FUN …this goes right along with all the things I just listed.  If you can’t have fun in life–YOU NEED TO CHANGE SOMETHING. 

SMILING …continuing from fun.  IF YOU CAN’T SMILE–you need to stay in bed.  haha !

LAUGHING! …it helps with EVERYTHING.

What is MOST important to YOU???
