Hello my loyal readers (all 2 of you).....
Busy, busy weekend here. I really thought that after my class was over this semester that I'd be a lot more relaxed. Didn't happen. I think that maybe I might be what people call "tightly wound" and pretty much I find stress in even the smallest of things. I say...not so people....if you don't believe me, buy me a gift certificate for a massage and I'll show you how to relax! But since I didn't do that, I did the next best thing---
Anyway....I had lots of fun this weekend. On Thursday night (not technically the weekend but it's my favorite week night) I watched Survivor and The Office. These are two of the best shows on TV. Survivor I just enjoy watching but not enough to buy the show on DVD. The Office....well, that's a different story. What's that you say? You don't watch The Office? Well....if you'd like to be my friend, I suggest you start watching this show immediately. Even if you don't really love it, you should at least be familiar with it and have a healthy respect for it, because if we hang out even a little, I'm going to be quoting it. But I digress....
Friday night, I went over to Shannon's house and spent some time with her and her family and some of their friends. I've had two of Shannon's kids (for two years each-back to back) so this is the first time in awhile that I've not had any of her kids. Demi and her family was there...I currently have one of her kids. So presh.....they really made me laugh.
On Saturday, I went to birthday party at the Sanderson Center pool for one of my students. She invited the entire class and Raelynn was real excited about swimming. I saw lots of students there and had a good time. One student did splash me on purpose though....I don't think he had any idea how I'd take that....I think he'll find out tomorrow.
Raelynn and I then went to the store and then I went to dinner with my friends Kathy, Wendy, Kamille, Jennifer, and Demi. I just have to say here that these incredible women are more than friends....you see.....I teach their children. I will be teaching them again next year in fifth grade so our friendship bonds should only grow stronger. We had a blast and closed down Harvey's. It's really neat when you can get so many funny people together. It was some welcome relief for the stress that I'd been feeling the last week or so. I hope we'll all be able to get together again soon. If you feel upset that you didn't come, all you have to have is the following things to join us-- 1) Wicked sense of humor 2) Undying love and devotion to me (Ha!) 3) a love all things food 4) a supportive husband or family member to watch your kid(s)!!!
Today, I went to church and then spent some time scanning and posting pictures on facebook. That took a lot of time and I was successful at avoiding all the work that is currently waiting for me. Aren't you proud?
I'm trying really hard to think of something witty to talk about but somehow I don't feel it tonight. I didn't want anyone to think that I was slacking on my blogging responsibilities, so I thought I'd check in with you and let know what I've been up to.......
May your work week be stress-free and may you spend quality and quantity time with wonderful friends this week.....You know you deserve it! But if they can't hang out with you....give me a shout out...I'm up for most anything!
