Questions, Silly Questions

It is time for Tuesday 4 Meme!!!

#13 Questions, Silly Questions
1. Who is the last person you talked to? Josh

2. What is your weather like right now? Hot, sunny and 100's...why wasn't it like this when I was out of school??? LOL!!

3. Where will you be this weekend? Home and at my parents house.

4. What's for dinner tonight? Hamburgers

Well, we tried contacts last week for Josh, but it just didn't work out. He had a hard time with them, so maybe in the future he can try again. I am not sure if he will want to now or not.
My mom is getting ready to have cataract surgery, so today I took off work and we had her pre-operation appointments where they measure her eyes and intake her information. i felt a lot better about it afterwards. I was afraid she would be in a lot of pain, but they said no pain, which is great because she has a low tolerance. Anyway, that is next week. I will be doing her eye drops, etc.. because my dad has Alzheimer's and she has Parkinson's. I am taking several days off work, but I have a very supportive boss and staff, so I am very thankful for that.
I have some new children starting at the preschool this week also. Busy, busy, busy. I hope you are all doing great!! Have a nice week.

Arts & Entertainment

It is time for Tuesday 4 Meme.

#12 Arts & Entertainment
1. Favorite Quote or Saying? I do not have a favorite quote, maybe something from Dr. Seuss, but I will give my favorite Bible verse and I live by this one. Proverbs 3:5...Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.

2. Favorite Poem or Ode? I love poetry, but I am not sure that I have a favorite one...nothing is coming to mind anyway.

3. Favorite Line from a Play, Book or Movie? I really do not have favorite movie quotes either, I am not one that goes around quoting movies, I guess this one is fun from Forrest Gump: "My momma always said, "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." (I can almost hear him saying it).

4. Favorite TV Show of All Time? Friends, but there are so many tv shows I love.

That one was really hard for me, but it was fun.
I am taking Josh to get his eyes checked tomorrow, he is wanting contacts. We shall see. Have a nice week.

Here is my new siggie from Judy.

Gadgets You Can't Do Without

Here is Annie's Meme!!

Gadgets You Can't Do Without

1. What kitchen gadget do you rely on the most? (this would include fancy coffee makers, mixers, microwaves, etc.) I will say the microwave

2. Could you handle going back to the pre-microwave days? We use our microwave a lot, yes, I could go back and kind of wish there were not microwaves, I have read some horrible things about how they remove nutritional values of foods.

3. Would you miss your cell phone? I do not use my cell phone much, I use it mostly for texting and checking facebook. I enjoy being able to text, it is just easy. I do not like to talk on the phone very much, but I do think I would miss texting, apps and the other fun things.

4. Could you turn off your computer and never bother with it again? I know we can all do what we have to do in emergencies, etc, but I mean could you make a voluntary decision not to use one anymore? no...I love my computer, I love being able to connect with people on the computer and do facebook and google.

5. What about television? Could you give it up for just radio? No, I prefer tv. It is off a lot, but I listen to the radio even less. I enjoy quiet. I would miss my shows though, so tv it is.

6. Would you trade modern music venues for old 33 1/3 snap, crackle and pop recordings? I had fun playing those records when I was a kid, and I do enjoy listening to the crackling sometimes, but no...I LOVE the quality they have today for music.

That was a very fun Meme Annie!! Thanks!!

Well, the kids have arrived and the week has gone well. I think we are about caught up with the little things around the room that needed to be taken care of, so now we can just enjoy the kids. I am still glad tomorrow is Friday.
Josh started school on Wednesday also and had a bad day, he seemed better today though. It is hard getting back into the swing of school sometimes. I hope you are all doing well. Have a nice weekend. Here is my sigtag from Jules

Personal Preferences

It is time for Tuesday 4 Meme!!!

#11 Personal Preferences
1. Quiet evening at home or Out on the town? Home, but every now and then I do enjoy going out.

2. Watch a movie or Reading a good book? movie

3. Order a meal or cooking one yourself? Order, I love to eat out.

4. Going for a walk or taking a ride in the car? depends, but probably a walk.

I have been in meetings this week, we had intruder training on Monday and motivational speaker today, we did get to work in the classroom a little. I met my new para, she is really nice. I think we are ready for the kids. We better hope so, they are coming tomorrow. I am excited to see them. If you think of us, pray for a good year for us and our kids. Josh starts school tomorrow also, so we will be in full swing. He is a little grouchy today, so he is probably feeling the way I was on Sunday. Pray for him too. Have a great week!!

Throwback Thursday

I was able to swim on Tuesday and Wednesday, so that is good for me. I was afraid I would not get any pool time in this week because of the clouds. It is actually a good day to swim today also, but I had a lot to do. I was thinking it was going to rain also, but so far no.
I took Josh to the high school to pick up his schedule and pick out his locker, then we went to the bank to cash a check he got for his birthday. We came home and I called the lady who helps us at the preschool. She is the church connection that gets us stuff. Anyway, I had made a list of things for her of things we need and she is wanting to meet with me tomorrow because she has the stuff I asked for. She has the kids' snacks and a lot of supplies. The great thing is the church had already dropped off some supplies, so we are going to be set. I am excited about that. I am still not ready for school to start, but we are prepared.
Then Josh and I went to get our haircut. So we both have our hair taken care of for back to school.
I am meeting my friend Malinda tonight and we are going to an essential oils party, this one is for Autism/ADHD, it will be a good one for the classroom and knowing what oils to use in the classroom. We use the Young Living essential oils. There is a Back to School class coming up I am more interested in for Josh, but this one is first.
Ok, so for Throwback Thursday, I am posting this crazy picture I found in my files when I was hunting pictures for Josh's birthday collage. Some of you may remember it. It is from when I first came online with my website, so Josh was maybe a year or 2 and I was about 28. I wish I was this skinny still. Oh well. Have a great week!!
Here is my siggie from Judy. This siggie is so me in the summer. Oh how I hate that summer is almost over.

Josh's 16th Birthday

It is time for Tuesday 4 Meme

#10 Time Tells All (Fill In The Blanks)
1. It's 9:00 AM Sunday and I'm usually waking up and starting laundry at this time.

2. It's Noon On Monday and I'm usually teaching my afternoon class at this time.

3. It's 8:00 PM Wednesday and I'm usually watching tv at this time.

4. It's 5:30 PM Friday and I'm usually having supper at this time.

Saturday we went to see Guardians of the Galaxy. We all enjoyed it. It was good. Sunday I was hoping to hit the pool, but it was too cloudy. Monday was Josh's 16th Birthday!!!
I think most of you are on my facebook, but if not, here is the collage I made of him. I cannot believe he is 16. I had a hard time with it. I had a little cry, I did the same thing when he turned 1. Well anyway, we met with my mom during the morning of his birthday and we went shopping. We got him new tennis shoes for school and some new books. He is also wanting a movie. He doesn't ask for much. He is hard to buy for because if you do get him something nice...we got him an iPhone for Christmas...he doesn't really care anything about it. So, I learned my lesson, I do not get him stuff like that without asking him if it is something he wants. Later, we met with Karl's family and we all had supper together. He has a big family, so there were a lot of us. It was fun. Here is a picture of Josh at dinner.
I am hoping to get to the pool on Tuesday. I am afraid it is going to be cloudy again and as the week goes on it is supposed to rain. This has not been a good summer for swimming/tanning.
I need to get my driver's license renewed this week and I hope to get Josh and possibly me too a haircut to get ready to get back to school. Have a great week.
Here is my siggie from Judy. Thank-you Judy!
