Happy Halloween!!

I thought I had posted after I finished student teaching, but I didn't. I think I make blog posts in my head sometimes. My last week was good, but like I said, it was really hard to leave. I loved it over there. I cried and I still think about those kids and wonder how they are doing.
I have been back to work for about 2 weeks I think. They have sent me 3 new kids and are working on 3 more. I welcome more kids. The kids do better overall when there are more of them to play with. We have 10 between two classes right now. That is not very many.
Karl is laid off again. It does sound like there will be some more work soon though. That is good.
There is nothing going on with our house. We had a bid and the amount offered was good, but they wanted us to sign something stating that we would fix anything an inspector might find wrong with the house. Well, depending on the inspector, they may find nothing, they may find thousands of dollars of stuff. There is no way to know, so we didn't sign. We have an old house too, so that was too scary to sign.
Ok, here is a Josh story. I painted my nails dark purple for Halloween, they look black. Well, Josh asks me when I painted my fingernails and why they were black. I told him for Halloween. He informs me that is bad and that it is goth. I even got him a black jacket and he says it is goth, he doesn't like to wear it. He cracks me up. Maybe I will dye my hair black too and see what he says...LOL!!
My night class will be over in December and I will be done with college. I can almost taste it!! I am so excited. I will be at night class for Halloween. How exciting right? Well, I am going to go. Have a Happy and safe Halloween. I am excited to decorate for Thanksgiving...even though I think Wal~Mart wants me to decorate for Christmas. ;)


  1. Hey girlie, I know you will be so happy when your college is done. Woo hoo, you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Josh cracks me up. I never thought about painting my nails purple, but knowing people around here they would then they were painted for the RAVENS. NOT!!!

    Sorry to hear that Karl is laid off, will be praying for work his way soon.

    Keep us informed on the housing situation. :)

    Love ya,

  2. Hi Lori,
    SO sorry you didn't know about Elizabeth. (((hugs)))

    Sounds like your life is full and busy!

    much love to you!

  3. What wonderful news that you are so close to being done with school!! Congrats! Sounds like Josh has definite opinions and that's not bad!! Praying Karl gets work soon!! Blessings!!!

  4. Hi Lori, I am glad you are almost done with college. I had to laugh about the black nail thingy. I wonder what my grandson would say beause I never paint my nails with color, just clear. I do want a tatoo someday but he sees those on his dad and uncle. I hope the job and house situation work out for you. Hugs

  5. You're almost done with your college classes?!?! How exciting! I bet that will be such a relief!!!!!! Congrats!

    The goth story was funny! ;)

  6. Oh Lori I am so proud of you congrats! That is so funny what Josh said, I would think the same thing! I had to laugh. Morgan sometimes looks goth, her hair and eyes are so dark and she had on a cute black crochet cap with dark nail polish. It,s hard to believe they are 13 years old now. I hope you're doing well. Hugs

  7. Hi Lori! That's an odd request for the prosepective buyers to make. We've recently bought 2 homes and the way it works here is you make an offer subject to inspection and then you negotiate with the seller who pays for what, who fixes what, etc... The last house the seller didn't want to make the repairs so he just deducted the amount from the selling price. I don't blame you for not wanting to sign a blank check! Hope Karl finds work soon. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about Elizabeth! (((Hugz)))

  8. Teaching is such an amazing gift that you can give and make a difference, more power to you! And the housing stuff is always crazy. I am sure the right offer will come along, just takes patience! And kudos too for the college thing. I would love to go back but I don't want to put myself in debt even more with student loans.
    Can you post pictures of your Thanksgiving decorations? :)
