Just Some Random Junk

I have to admit I felt so much better after my last blog post.  I really do enjoy it more than Facebook. 

Travel goal update - We are taking a road trip in March.  I am very excited because the longest road trip we have taken together was to Fresno to visit Tim's sisters.  We are planning on a week-long journey to hit the Redwoods, San Francisco and/or Napa, Portland, and possibly Boise.  The more I plan the more I want to see along the way and I feel like we could take much longer than a week, but that's all the time we have so we are going to make the best of it all.  Mostly, I am excited about the number of friends we will get to visit along the way so some of you should be prepared for our bright and shiny faces at the end of March.

Blogging goal - Second post this week...not bad.

God goal - Still at the very beginning of this goal.  Working on setting some time aside each night to spend time with God.  I think He deserves more than my pathetic, last-minute praying just before I fall asleep at night.  I feel crummy about the amount of time I spend in prayer with Him versus the amount of time I want to spend.  (I used "crummy" just for my Lizabeth.)

Today was the first day back to school after the holiday vacation and I have to admit that I am EXHAUSTED!  Actually, I am beyond exhausted.  What's after exhaustion?  Death?  The kids were pretty wound up and we always have to spend the first couple of days practicing things such as lining up, raising hands, and transitioning.  This particular class is notorious for tattling.  I can't believe these kids have any friend left.  They will tattle on anyone at any time.  They do not seem to play favorites nor have they mastered the art of covering for one another...sad.  I had one charmer point out, in the middle of a lesson and out loud, that is best friend was chewing gum.  Really?  Who are you and why does anyone want to play with you?  Some day someone is going to take that kid to an alley and beat the crap out of him.  My favorite is still the kids that think if they put their hand over their mouth I will not notice they are eating.  Hmmm, I wonder why Daisy has her hand over her mouth.  It must be a really comfortable position.  Maybe, when her jaw is going up and down she is just stretching it out a little.  Hmmmm.  She must be getting ready to blurt out something profound.  Ya, that's it...profound!

Off to bed very early!

Whoo-hoo for trip planning!

Kathie said...

That would be "I am with you", of course :)

Again, tired...

Maybe it's a diet tip that I've been missing all these years. If I'm covering my mouth while I'm chewing I must not really be eating! Just think of all the unwanted pounds I could have avoided had I known this!?!

Hahaha! It's funny when they think they're so clever when they so obviously are anything but. I can relate to you on the praying. This is an area of my life that I need to work on so much. Many days I don't pray at all, other nights it's the little bit before I fall asleep and I ramble and repeat myself I know. It's a good goal for the year!
