Maleficent

Today was Josh's last day of school. He went until 12:30 and I picked him up. We got the summer started by seeing Maleficent.
We loved it. I am a huge fan of fairy tales and to tell you the truth, I do not remember much from Sleeping Beauty other than Maleficent used to scare me to death. I enjoyed the back story of Maleficent and how the movie progressed. I do not want to say too much in case you want to see it. I think Josh is trying to make plans to go to my parent's house this weekend now. He never stays home. I did laundry today, but other than that the highlight was the movie. Have a great weekend. Here is a meme I found at Toni's who found it on Annie's blog: Annie's Meme 1. Do you recall your first date? Yes 2. What did you do? Where did you go? Did you have a good time? We went to dinner and a movie. It was an ok time. 3. Did you go out with the same person again or was that it? I think that was it. 4. Ever go on a blind date? How did that work out? I did go out on a blind date. We ended up dating for 2 years. 5. What was the best date experience ever? When I was in college I dated a guy that made a total fuss over me. We did not do anything out of the ordinary, but he always made me feel so special and treated me like a lady.

The Doctors...

Tuesday I went to see my doctor's. I saw my neurologist and that visit went fine, I had to have blood work done, so I was there for 2 hours. I love my doctor, he is awesome. I have seen him since I was 13. Next, I went to see my chiropractor about my hip/leg pain. He put me on his tables and adjusted me, but I was still having some pain. I went back today and he is thinking it is a pinched nerve/bulging disc. He put me on his roller table, adjusted me, then he did some acupuncture. I have never done that before. You cannot even feel it. I do not know if it helped or not, but we tried it. Then he put me on another table that stretches you out. That felt really good. Anyway, I go back on Monday. The chiropractor is the son of a lady that used to work with me. They are really good people. Tonight we went to dinner with Karl's family. It is his mom and dad's 50th Anniversary. It was nice. We went to a place called Buckingham's and it is Bar-b-que. It was really good. Tomorrow is the last day of school for Josh. He gets out at noon. I am taking him to see Maleficent with Angelina Jolie. That is the plan anyway. This school year went by really fast for me. I know he will be excited to be done.

Happy Memorial Day!!!

So....I have not posted since August. Wonderful. Well, I just want to say, I had a really good year at the preschool. My job can be a very hard job, but this year it was quite manageable. The kids were great and they learned a lot. The winter was crazy and we missed a lot of school. Maybe that is why my year seemed easier. It is over though. We had our last day of school on Wednesday and we did a work day on Thursday to get ready for Summer school. I am teaching summer school this summer for the first time ever. For whatever reason, I am so excited. I have washed the curtains and play rugs for the kids just as if it were the first day of school. We start June 2nd and end June 27th. Josh and I also plan to visit Oklahoma with my parents this summer in July. Tomorrow I go to the doctor...I have been having this pain in my hip and down my leg. I am seeing my chiropractor tomorrow to see if he can help me. Today we are anxiously awaiting the Cardinals/Yankees game. They are in rain delay as I type this. I saw a graphic posted this morning and I wanted to share it with Toni....so here it is
The Cardinals and Yankees very seldom get to play one another. It doesn't make any sense. They paid tribute to the World Series these two teams played 50 years ago and they also paid tribute to Yankees Derek Jeter...in his farewell year, he will be greeted in each stadium he plays in this year. The Cardinals gave some money to his charity and some cuff links with the likeness of Stan Musial (Cardinal Hall of Famer). The fans will go crazy for him.
Well anyway, it is Memorial Day. This day means a lot of things to me. It is the day we typically decorate the graves of those we have lost, but mostly it is the day we remember our Veterans that were lost fighting for our freedom. I do not know about you, but I am very thankful to live in a country where I am free. Thank-you Veterans! Whatever you are doing to observe this day, be safe and say a prayer for those who have defended us so bravely. Have a great day and Happy Memorial Day!!
