*My sister has asked me why I like to sub in high school, considering the attitudes I'm often met with. Among several reasons is the fact that I get out early quite frequently. Like yesterday, for instance, I was done with kids by 12:00, yet still got a full day's pay. Many teachers have prep periods at the end of the day, making it so I get to skip out early! Totally worth it because I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything at home. :)
Sidenote: I started this blog post yesterday and am not sure I have the same feelings I just shared. While I may have had a great/short day yesterday, the last two periods of my not-short day today were horrible. I threatened to take away the phone of one kid, and let's just say that I will NEVER mess with those kids' precious little phones again. Holy cow. It was ROUGH. However, I should say that I'm pretty good at appearing unaffected by punks like him....when my insides secretly are in knots. :)
*Chris has implemented a new rule for me. Whenever I roast veggies, I have to also light a candle. I will admit that cabbage, in particular, is exceptionally stinky. :)
Peach Mango was the scent of the day:
*The dollhouse we bought Kendall a couple years ago (that I was SOO excited about) lost its appeal very shortly after her birthday. She was actually excited when I told her I wanted to get rid of it since it was just cluttering up her room. I sold it for $15 more on Criag's List than I previously paid. Score!
*Today marks a week since I last worked out. Each morning when I wake, snuggled in bed, I glance at the clock and the darkness outside and I tell myself I'm going to take December off. Yep, I think that's a good plan. :)
*I must admit that despite getting plenty of show options through Netflix/Hulu, it still is a bummer that I can't watch my Hallmark Christmas movies this season. Luckily my MIL always records them for me so that I can watch them when we go and visit.
*I want to go back to last week's weather when this was my view from our back window:
*Nothing better on a rainy day than a movie. Right now the kids are watching The Nightmare Before Christmas. I held off for a while when they would see it on Netflix, but it's actually quite harmless and not scary at all.
