mom’s visiting !! she drives up tomorrow :) getting everything freshyfresh today for her arrival!
Woke up early(ish) this morning and have been very productive! took rocko for a beach frolic earlier then took a nice long bike ride. Potted a new plant, washed dishes, laundry-ed up all my clothes AND all my bedding. Cleaned the room, and the car (a little haha) About to make a delish lunch, shower, then one more quick bike errand before work at brick house!
My first official “single” valentines day in 7 years.
my adorable thoughtful roomie brought me a calla lily this morning :)
sat around watching bravo reality…
did NOT write up the papers that Charleston county wants from me to prove i’m a good teacher. :-/ they are months late… tomorrow was my new revised due date. I’m boycotting them… today was not the day for me to focus on 20 pages of long term range plans for school. another slap on the wrist …. uh oh :(
met a potential new roommate for the 3rd bedroom.
About to head into work at brick house… to wait on cute couples bitterly
“In short, one might say that Folly Beach represents your hippie surfer cousin, Wadmalaw your kitchen-loving granny, and Kiawah Island your discriminating father-in-law. Sullivan’s Island and Isle of Palms would be your sentimental sisters. And Charleston itself? It could be the love of your life.”
I love this. Although I don’t know if I’d characterize Folly as a “hippie surfer cousin”; though there certainly are hippies and surfers there (as there are on the other beaches, too). If I were wriitng this, I would say instead
“that Folly Beach represents the faded, bittersweet memories of your lost love”.
I am stationed in the cafeteria for morning duty this month. I have to help the students get their breakfast and get on their way to class.
Today I was asked by a fellow teacher to please stop handing out napkins to the kids with my hands… as she believes that is very “unsanitary”. Instead she suggests I carry a “napkin basket” around and let students only touch the one they will take…
Has it really come to this? With all that happens in an elementary school… is handing a napkin to a child really worth worrying about..?
Does anyone else think that is kind of ridiculous??
the house is everything I needed :) i feel so inspired and rejuvenated!!
The cleaning ladies did an awesome job yesterday, everything is spic and span ( no more grimey 3-boys-and-a-pitbull residue on everything)
I am SO ready to nest
I have the full day off today.. ready to UNPACK my life! all of my things have been living in boxes since mid December. It’s been driving me nuts!!
I can’t wait to share pics of this place. It’s actually the coolest house I’ve ever rented (This will be the 10th house I’ve rented since my Junior yr of college…crazy!)
I would also like to announce that February is officially my self-improvement month! haha
No more drowning my sorrows into chik-fil-a and sonics. No more excuses of why I’m not in the mood to walk or bike or yoga. I’m ready to turn this pity party around.. and I plan on doing so.
I wanna thank thankthank my family, and my friends … I couldn’t have gotten through the past 2 months without all the support i received… and am still receiving!! I really am blessed and grateful. This has been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to go through..(2011 was NOT my year) ..and although I can see the light at the end of the tunnel..I’m not quite there yet. But this morning, sitting in my new room.. with my pup and my beloved photos and chotchkes all around me, and the sound of the wind blowing through the palm trees… I had a realization.. I’m gonna be alright.
