....only 30 days left?!!!

It's only Tuesday, but I'm (more than) halfway through the week already...gotta love those weeks. We have two half days this week for parent/teacher conferences and then a workday on Friday to get reading for EOG's! I have that sick feeling in the pit of my stomach...you know, the one that teachers get about two weeks before EOG's that doesn't go away until after scores come in. ugh. Only 7 more school days until it gets here. But, looking on the bright side, there are only 30 days of school left! I must admit, I'm much happier this school year than I was last year at this time. Please remind me never to take a teaching position in the middle of the year again.

Anyway...I usually link up with Megan for Sometimes and Always on Tuesdays, but I'm grading like a crazy lady tonight...so I'm taking a quick break to give a shout out...the lovely Neely is having two awesome giveaways on her blog right now. One from Scentsy and one from Thirty-One. I use products from both of those companies and I would LOOOOOVE to win at least one of the giveaways. You know, a scentsy to keep the icky pet smell out of my home and a bag from Thirty One because, well, what woman doesn't need a new bag? ;)

So, hop on over to Neely's place and check out her giveaways...maybe you'll get lucky! :)

Back to grading....buhhhhh.

It's Okay

I'm avoiding doing any real work, and trying to soak in the last few days of spring break before I have to go back to work on Monday. I'll probably have to go up to school tomorrow to get things copied for next week. I just came to the realization that conferences have snuck up on me and I probably need to start those next week, too. Damn. Only 33 days of school left! :)

Today It's Ok...

...to avoid doing anything productive.
...to be really excited that you hit over 1 million points on Temple Run
...to turn the heat on in mid-April because mother nature is having a fit this week.
...to not want to go back to work on Monday.
...to be extremely grateful for your amazing boyfriend.
...and to realize that you may have taken him for granted until a reality check slapped you in the face and you realized that you need to show him how much you appreciate him.
...to want to cry whenever you hear the song "Stealing Cinderella" 
(yeah, it just came on Pandora. Sue me)
...to think your cat is really weird when he sits on the floor and stares up at you.

okay, I think i'm done. I'm all thought out for the day. It's time to get ready for my lunch date with boyfriend :)

Sometimes and Always

Oh...Spring Break. How I love you! I'm sitting here at 10:15, drinking coffee, and I've already showered, done a load of laundry, finished a book, and I'm about to start another load...so much productivity going on around our house this morning!

We took a trip down to the beach for a few days to be with my family for Easter. We had lots of fun, at lots of bad food (that apparently has to stop in our house. Sad cakes), and had lots of laughs. I didn't take many pictures...as I get older, I get increasingly worse at remembering to take pictures. Oh well.

It's time for Sometimes and Always with the lovely Megan over at Mackey Madness!
Sometimes I wish I knew more about cars so I could figure out why my car is making a horrible nose.
Always I'm glad that the dealership is close by so they can look at it!

Sometimes, after spending the weekend with little RQ, I wish we were ready to have kids.
Always I remember that we most certainly are NOT.

Sometimes I wish spring break could last all year long.
Always I sorta kinda already miss the kids' faces after only 4 days!

Sometimes I wish I could quit my job and not do anything.
Always I think about how bored I would be...and how broke I would be. 
(Let's be honest, I love Target too much to quit my job.)

I think that's all for today, the laundry just stopped. That's the one thing I hate about coming home from vacation. So. much. laundry!

Toodles, y'all
