Well, I have nothing new to report on the computer front, however, I am one day closer to summer vacation.  I say that's a pretty positive thing!

I need a vacation!

Download word art here

I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing long weekend!  I did and now I want more!  I can't wait for June 7th to get here so that my vacation can begin!

I spent my long weekend doing wonderful things like eating way too much, napping, catching up on my favorite TV shows and shopping.

I bought a new comforter and pillows for the bed and some books.  Yes, I still buy books!  I download some onto my iPad, but I still need to actually hold books in my hand too.  I'm not sure if that's the teacher or the book lover in me. Lol

I was supposed to take care of some CT stuff and get my June word art uploaded and I had every intention of doing that.....Monday night...lol.  However, the old computer had other plans and wanted a longer vacation, so it decided not to start.  How rude, right?  I tried being nice to it and promised not to ignore it and assured it that I loved it every bit as much as I love the iPad....but it just wasn't buying what I was selling. Lol!

I want one of my friends to take a look at it for me as soon as he comes back from vacation tomorrow.  I've told everyone that I'll be waiting to greet him with the old, "Hi, how was your trip? Did you have fun? Can you fix my computer?"  greeting that I just know he's going to love.  Lol!

Hopefully, everything will get worked out and I can get the June word art uploaded on time.  If not bear with me...I'll make it up to you with extra ones later.

I am so thankful!

Download word art here

I know it's not Thanksgiving or anything but I am so thankful!

I am thankful that it's a three day weekend.

I am thankful that after the long weekend there will only be 8 more days of school.

I am thankful!!!!!

I'm also sleepy, but you probably figured that out on your own.  lol!

Yeah, we're lottery winners!

Download word art here

Guess who suddenly got rich last weekend?

 Well, it wasn't me.  lol!

 But.....we did manage to win $272 in the Florida Lotto.  lol!

Not too bad for a $4 investment!  Of course, if we had matched one more number we would have won $20 thousand dollars.  We don't care!  We're not greedy!  We're excited about our $200 win.

OK, OCG is a little more excited than I am.  Or, he was until he went to the store on Tuesday to cash in the ticket so that we could spend the money on dinner and drinks.

He decided that he had to buy another ticket cause, you know, apparently, we're the luckiest people in the world right now and we're bound to win even more money if he buys another ticket.

 I didn't want to bust his bubble, he'll figure out on his own that we're not THAT lucky.  lol!

Anyway, he goes to the store and fills out the form to buy another ticket and proudly hands it to the cashier along with Saturday's winning ticket.  I think he thought he was going to impress the cashier with his big $200 win.  lol!

He was so disappointed!

Apparently, the girl looked at the old ticket like, "Why is this loser giving this ticket to me," and then just laid it on the counter and printed out the new ticket.  She then told him that he owed her $4.  lol!

He pointed to the winning ticket on the counter and asked if she could take the $4 out of that.  According to him, she rolled her eyes at him, picked up the ticket and said, "Do you want me to check this?"

He said yes, so she did and then without any reaction or any congratulations handed him the new ticket and $268 before turning her back on him and walking to the other end of the counter.

I told him not to worry about it cause she was just jealous.  lol!

Well, we had decided to treat our lottery winnings like found money. You know that you're supposed to just totally waste found money, right? 

We had every intention of doing that, but then we realized that even though the girl in the grocery store wasn't impressed, we are pretty lucky.  Instead of the large expensive dinner with way too many overpriced drinks and a yummy dessert, we ordered in pizza, drank beer that was already in the fridge and skipped dessert all together.  Then we donated the rest of the money to the Red Cross.

There are families in Oklahoma that aren't as lucky as we are.

Do you have any found money you can donate?

My first time...

Download word art here

I know some of you read the title of this post and had your mind go right to the gutter!  Shame on you....and...call me later, we'll talk.  lol!

Right now, I'm talking about a totally different kind of first time. 

On Wednesday, for the very first time in my life I parallel parked my car.  That's right!  I am exactly one hundred, ninety eight thousand years old and I parallel parked for the first time ever. 

If you know anything Miami Beach, you're shaking your head in disbelief and wondering how I got to be one hundred, ninety eight thousand years old without ever parallel parking.  It's easy.....you drive around the block several times until you find a parking space or you find a place that has two parking spots open and slide into one from the other or you pay for a parking garage.

Well, on Wednesday, I was feeling brave....or stupid...or stupidly brave and decided to actually give parallel parking a chance.  It had nothing to do with the fact that the sooner I parked my car the sooner I could get to the cold beverage that was waiting for me.  It also had nothing to do with the fact that it was a pretty large parking space or the fact that there was no one around to point and laugh as I made my attempt.

OK, so it actually had everything to do with it being an oversized parking space and the fact that there was no one around to point and laugh!  lol!

I did it!  I did it on the first try!  I did it correctly!

I can't say that I'm eager to do it again, but I've done it once and I now have bragging rights!

The only bad part is that there was no one around to see me, so I have no witnesses and no one who knows me believes me.

You believe me though, right?

I only wish...

Download word art here

I only wish school was out! 

I am so jealous of my friends whoteach in areas that don't have school after the long Memorial weekend.  I don't finish until  June 7th.  So....far....away....

On a happier note...Casey at the Bat was lots of fun this morning and I enjoyed teasing my principal.  He was a pretty good sport about the whole thing.

Can you believe that he had never read Casey at the Bat?  So, he was a little surprised when he struck out.  lol!

After the whole thing was over, my kids wrote him thank you letters.  They were great, except for the one little girl who wrote... "I'm sorry Ms. Brown made fun of you."

I told my principal that kid was going to be getting a bad grade.  lol!

Now, I've got to get some more sleep because we're heading to the Science Museum in about nine hours.  Should be  fun!

Sebastian Update!

Download word art here

It's been a long time since I've given you guys a Sebastian update!  He is doing wonderfully and loves his new school.  They love him too which is a good thing!  Cause I would have to go to Broward County and set some people straight if they weren't taking care of my Sebastian!  lol!

Seriously, he's so so well that he was one of 29 Broward County students honored with a Student of Character award.  That's a pretty big deal ~ especially for a first grader! 

Over Mother's Day weekend, Sebastian's mom asked him he if thought she was pretty.  His response.....

"Why do you think I stare at you sometimes?  It's cause you're so pretty to me."

Gotta love that kid!

Now, it's late and I need to get some sleep.  We're bringing Casey at the Bat to life tomorrow morning and my principal has volunteered to be Casey.  The poor guy has no idea how much fun I plan to have at his expense!  lol!

Probably not what I should have said...

Download word art here

Today I busted out the old Mr. Rick character education music CD.  If you know know who he is, let me tell you that he is kind of geek-tabulous.  I mean as adults we get how lame the songs are, but the kids think they're actually listening to rock music.  Well, except for that one song where he sorta, kinda raps.  lol!

Anyway, after listening to a couple of the songs, one of them got stuck in my head.  STUCK in my head and I spent the rest of the day walking around singing it OUT LOUD.  At times I didn't even realize that I was singing.

In the afternoon, my class was taking a math test and after reading the question then waiting for everyone to mark their answers I stood there singing THAT song.  My class quickly AND loudly moaned collectively and started demanding that I stop singing.

My response...

"HEY!  We are in the middle of a test and you aren't supposed to be talking, so you'll just have to be quiet and listen to me sing!"

Happy May give away

Download word art here 

Happy May!  I am one day closer to summer vacation and I couldn't be happier!

Several and I mean SEVERAL years ago I was given a Cricut for Christmas and other than opening it up that first day to play I never used the poor thing.  I was feeling like a negligent parent when a friend of mine commented that she would love to have one and I decided to put mine up for adoption.  It really was the best thing to do.  She was going to love the little thing way more than I ever could. 

My friend has now taken the Cricut and moved away.  I don't have the best track record of keeping in touch with people even though I really, really mean to.  (I have several long distance friends that may be reading this right now and laughing because they know I'm telling the truth and can't remember the last time they heard from me.)  However, I'm sure my friend and her Cricut are very happy together and have created lots of beautiful crafty things.

Tonight, while cleaning out a long deserted box of crafting supplies I came across this little box...

Obviously, I have no use for this little goodie anymore.  If you can use it and would like to have it just leave a comment on this post and I'll pick someone to mail it out to in a week or so.
