Our Simple Pleasures

celebrating life one moment at a time

Thanks for checking in!

Life has been CRAZY busy around here….and I. am. exhausted. Hence, no posting since last week! Sorry…

YEAH!!! This is post #500 for me! 🙂 Thank you…Thank you!

Glad I could be of service for chiggers……….and birthdays….and the Wiggles (DAMN THAT SONG! Now, it is once again in my head!)   😉 My goal in life is now accomplished! Whew!

I tried to test that “i was sick husband bathed me” on google and on page 54 I gave up….no idea what post that brought up! LOL!

Life at school/work is crazy. I am trying to teach, do my special ed paperwork (of which I always seem to be late this year! IEP jail here I come!), and register my 20 caseload kiddos for 9th grade so they are all set for high school next year… chaos is the only word that comes to my mind to describe this past week! Friday’s coming….and it’s a LONG weekend…and my parents are coming up from IL to visit! 🙂 There is a light at the end of this LONG DARK TUNNEL!

Life at home… not much to report. Punky is talking more and more and the things that come out of his mouth just crack us up! We went in for his ear check on MOnday, and it’s ALL CLEAR! Yea!!!!!!!!!!

Can’t believe February is almost over?!?!? Where did January go? February? Time sure is flying these days!

I haven’t been reading much as of late…I have three books going on…something I NEVER do! So, it’s been interesting. I have had the attention span of a gnat these past few weeks.

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching… been trying to figure out what to do that night. We’ll ask my father-in-law over for dinner so he doesn’t have to spend his first Valentine’s Day with out my mother-in-law alone at home.

I’ve been busy booking parties and book parties for AtHome America. 🙂

Been busy planning scrapping days with my friends and with church. I’m trying to get a group of us started at church so we can meet on a monthly basis, spread out over the tables in the fellowship hall and scrap for 12 hours. We’ll try our first time in March…and I’ll also be teaching a “faithbooking” class to any who are interested in doing some of that. It’s really interesting as I have been studying up on what faithbooking is and how to incorporate it into scrapbooking. I’m excited to get into this!

Not too much else is new here. Parent-Tecaher conferences are also quickly approaching so I HAVE to get through my papers I need to grade! Midquarters for 3rd quarter are coming due!!!!! Time is a flyin’!

    Happy 500! I’m cracking up at the sick/husband bathing you thing. Too funny. Sounds like you’ve been busy but having some fun too.

    I’m glad to hear that you are okay. Congrats on your 500th post! It sounds like you are very busy.

    That was fun reading your summary stats…LOL

    Have a great Valentine’s Day.

    Happy 500! I love the new stats thing, but I’m a bit disturbed at my top searches…

    I tagged you today, so when you get a moment, it is an easy one. 🙂

    Take care!

    Congrats on the big 5-0-0!

    I need to get caught up on my scrapbooks. I used to go to scrapbooking overnighters… and one February many years ago I got snowed in. I was stranded there from Friday afternoon until Sunday night… but I finished off an entire 50 page album.

    Spent a lot of money too. dang.
