My family,

is the greatest. They are crazier than all get out but they are the greatest. Anyone who has put up with me for the past two years for any length of time should get a medal and my family should win the nobel peace prize. They are probably more excited than even I am that Jordan will be home tomorrow. (No, that was not a typo. He will be home TOMORROW!!!)

Just to show you how awesome my family is Yannette, my older sister, is going to meet Jordan at the airport tomorrow since I can't make it. Not only is going (dragging along a 6 month old I might add) but she is also making him a sign and taking noise makers! I am sure airport security is going to love her. The best part of it all is that she is going to give him a pair of crocs. I won't spoil her fun in telling the story but I am just sad that I will miss his face when he sees his newest pair of shoes....

less than 48 hours

until Jordan will be in the United States. I can't believe it! I bet you can't believe it either....

Some choices

Okay Netty, I am still working on "your" background but here are some that I have created. If there is on that you like, I would be happy to give it to you. Or if you like one but would like some changes, I can do that too. Just let me know...

Blog Backgrounds

are kind of fun. I am still working out the kinks. Miqui has a new background but it still needs a little bit of work. My background is very simple but I like it that way. All in all today was a fairly productive day- at least in the scrapbooking world. My lesson for Monday is still not planned and I have a million things still left on my to do list but are weekends really meant for getting things done? I didn't think so.

Oh, for those of you that are counting, as of 52 minutes ago, Jordan has only 10 more days of being a missionary. Can you believe it? I know I hardly can. It is like Christmas. You know how you look forward to it for so long and it feels like it will never get here but suddenly it is Christmas Eve? That is how I feel right now...except even more excited. 10 more days... I had finally broken the habit of biting my finger nails but the last 2 days have kind of shot that one. It is a good thing I have a manicure scheduled for the exact time Jordan's plane is supposed to be landing.

A few more...




Still blocked....

Scrappin' Block

I am currently suffering from scrappers block. I am frantically trying to get as much of Jordan's missionary scrapbook done before he comes home (11 days!) and it seems the pressure is getting to me. Since I couldn't think creatively regarding missions I stole some pictures off of Net's blog and came up with this...

started off well. Okay, not really. I over slept, really over slept. I have just enough time to jump in the shower, jump back out and run to the car. Of course in my haste to get to the car I forgot how to walk. Yeah, did you you know that there are 8 steps from the landing to the 1st floor? Yeah, I didn't know that either until I found out this morning- I counted each one with my @$$. From that moment on I knew my day was going to be just fantastic. Actually, I gave myself a whole pep talk on the way to work on how just because it started off poorly didn't mean I couldn't have a good day. Apparently, my pep talk didn't work.

After catching 3 students blatantly cheating on test corrections, it just got worse.

Yannette wrote about the stupid things people do. I think this act of stupidity should be added to the list. I stood over the students and watched them as they passed their papers back and forth and copied answers. Are you FREAKIN kidding me? I was insulted. Do they honestly think I am THAT stupid? If you are going to cheat, at least don't get caught!

Anyways, in discussing radical expressions, students might have well have stayed at home they were so out of it. I get it, Algebra at seven in the morning= crappy. It is not the most facinating topic I grant you but if you have to be there you might as well make the best of it right? So, after getting fed up with talking to myself and the one girl in the front row (bless her heart) I started yelling "GET UP!" They looked at me like is she serious? Of course I was serious. I made all 33 students stand up. When I started singing "head, shoulders, knees, and toes" they knew I had lost it. Yup, I made high schoolers do "Head, shoulders, knees and toes" . The best part was if ANYONE didn't participate the entire class had to do it again. No one is too cool for head, shoulders, knees and toes!
