Not exactly the best start to my summer!

Download word art here

So a storm blew through here Saturday night and knocked out the power and......it's still out!

We were already in bed Saturday night when the storm came through and I really must have missed something, because I just didn't think it was all that bad.  When the power went out, I didn't think anything about and figured it would come back on sometime later in the night or the early morning at the latest.  Man, oh man, was I ever wrong!

We got up Sunday morning and  learned that most of Memphis was without power.  I took advantage of the down time to sleep and sleep and then sleep some more.  The day wore on and we still didn't have power and I was completely over the novelty of it all!

When we still didn't have power by Monday afternoon I insisted that we check into a hotel.  That's right.....my inner Princess needs air conditioning!

With the kind of luck I have, I assured OCG that as soon as we checked into the hotel our power would come back on.  I'm not sure if my luck is getting better or worse though because so far no power.

So, we are enjoying life at the Marriott and since there are still about 60 thousand people with no power we may be here for awhile.  I'm kind of ok with that though because we've got a pool and a gym and a bar in the lobby.  LOL!

OK, I'm not going to complain in this update!

Check out this photo Sebastian's mom posted a couple of days ago.....

The picture on the bottom right is from his first day of Kindergarten.  The day I was lucky enough to become his teacher!  The picture on the top is from his last day in Kindergarten and the picture on the left was taken on the day of his fifth grade graduation.

He's as cute and amazing as ever!  This year he wrote a play and the Disney Dreamers program hired actors and produced it.  He wrote a play!  Disney made sure people got to see it performed!  My heart is full!

This time it is my fault...

I know I wrote down what fonts I used somewhere, but with the cable/internet problems and school ending I have no idea where I put that paper.  SORRY

It wasn't my fault!

Download word art here

I know I disappeared again, but it wasn't my fault this time!  You can thank Comcast this time! 

Just in case I haven't said this lately, Comcast sucks and I hate them!

My cable and internet went out.  After several phone calls with what they call "customer service", I finally convinced them that no matter how many times I unplugged everything and waited 30 seconds nothing was going to work! 

They decided that I needed a new box, and because of my schedule it was a couple of days before I could stop by to pick one up.  I got home, connected everything again and.....NOTHING!  No cable, no internet, NOTHING!  I watched a YouTube video on my phone to make sure I had everything connected correctly before once again calling Comcast. 

The guy who was tormenting...."helping" me made me unplug everything and wait for 30 seconds three times before he decided that I must have everything connected wrong.  He made me unhook everything and then he carefully talked me through reconnecting everything THE SAME EXACT WAY I had it connected to begin with!  We then played the unplug and wait game three more times before he decided that they were going to have to send someone out to take care of it in person. 

I needed to wait for a weekend appointment that finally arrived and after an hour the guy got everything working, but said that someone else would still need to come out and rewire everything.  He called and set up another weekend appointment for me. Thirty minutes after he left.....everything stopped working again.  The cable eventually came back up, but not the internet.

The weekend came and everything finally got fixed......FINGERS CROSSED!  But, then it ws the last week of school and I was tired so I waited until today to catch up on everything.

So, you can blame Comcast this time and if everything goes out again you can start collecting money for my bail.  I'm probably going to need lots!

I'm home...

Fonts used:  For girls Only & Friday Night

I'm home.  I'm not happy about it, but I'm home!

We are supposed to be at the hot air balloon festival in Franklin, Tennessee, but it was postponed because of the weather.  BOO!

It was just going to be a quick weekend get away, but I was really looking forward to it.

OCG talked to the hotel and they wont refund our money, but they've given us a credit that we can use once the festival is rescheduled and/or we decide to reschedule our mini trip.

We decided against going ahead and making the drive this weekend, because we didn't want to go if the weather isnt going to be good.  Now, if the guy at the hotel hadn't been kind enough to work with us, I would probably be sitting in a hotel room right now.  LOL

Instead, I'm sitting in my own bedroom and there's a pretty good chance I'm going to stay here until I have to go back to work on Monday.

The honesty of kids...

So, the other day I was sitting with a couple of students in my class and we were talking.  I honestly don't remember what question I asked, but apparently I went too far because suddenly one of the girls said....

"Now you all up in my business.

I was all like, "What did you say?"  and she was all like, "That's what my auntie always says to me."

I decided to move on and talk to some other kids.

One girl was proud of the new watch she was wearing and asked, "Ms. Brown, do you want to come with me to Walmart?  That's where I got my watch."

I was all like, "Girl, your mom's spending too much money on you!" and she was all like, "My momma didn't buy this! I stole it!"

I decided to stop talking to my students and go sit by myself.

...And people think that teaching PreK is easy...

It's Teacher Appreciation Week!

My day started with free breakfast at school from Chic-fil-A.  YUM!

I thought that was amazing, but it got better when my assistant gave me this...

I insisted that it was just too much, but she insisted that it wasn't enough.  In the end, I kept the money, but let her know that lunch the last week of school would be on me.  LOL!

I'm back!

I'm back and I've missed you all bunches! 

I'm sorry I stayed away for so long with no word, but life was moving at an extremely fast rate for the last month or so and I was just overwhelmed.  Most things have been great, but some weren't and I just needed to take a little break to deal and breathe.

I love you all for your comments and emails and again, I'm sorry I didn't respond.  Please know, that you were able to make me smile on the not so great days and I am forever grateful for that!  I owe you guys more free word art than I'll ever be able to produce!

I actually have the missing word art from my little bloggy break, but I think I might change the dates on them and give to you in the future instead of back posting.  That will may my life just a little easier for now.  I hope that's OK with you guys!

On a bright note, this school year is almost over!  May 26th is the last day!

On a "What the hell was I thinking" note, I signed up to teach summer school.  OK, I know what I was thinking.....it's almost $6,000 extra dollars!  I started planning my fall, Christmas and spring vacations as soon as I saw the amount.  LOL!

Luckily, this isn't normal "summer school".  It's a first time program initiated by our superintendent and once a week we're going on a fieldtrip.  YAY!

Anyway, I may regret it later, but I know my bank account will still thank me!
