River of Denial...

Tell me summer vacation is not over. Don't tell me I have to go back to work next week. Let me float down the river of denial a little longer. In the relative peace and quiet that is my life during the summer. Yes I work at home.. cleaning house.. doing laundry... mowing grass.... but it's nothing compared to teaching. I come home exhausted and tired. I love teaching, but slowly finding myself burning out. I am thinking it's time for a career change. Now if I could only find someone to pay me to sit at home and play on the computer I would be a happy camper. Until such time as that happens.. from AUgust to June I will be in the classroom.. It's going to be a great school year right?? (lie to me please??)

Top 3 Favorite Tv Shows

I am not a huge television watching person. When it is on, it's usually just for background noise while I am on the computer or scrapping, and then only if Steve and Wyatt are home. Just me.. I may go all day without turning the tv on. BUt when I do "watch", there are certain things I like...

1. CSI.. I like the all.. it's the whole mystery thing.. I love mysteries.

2. Law and Order... I like them all..

3. Desperate Housewives

still random stuffs...

still fulfilling the tagged requirements.. lol

16. I hate having a sunburn. I seldom burn. I am usually pretty good about sunscreen. But the part I hate is when the skin starts to peel. It's freaky looking and makes me gag.

17. I love flip flops. I just weeded through my collection.. and threw out 15 pair of flip flops that were old/dirty/falling apart.

18. I hate football. Unless the LSU Tigers are playing. THen I will watch them on tv, but I will not go to the game itself.

19. I hate being stuck in crowds. I get nervous and panicky. Hence the reason why I don't like Mardi Gras Parades and football games.

20. I don't mind being stuck in traffic. As long as I know that someone can pick up wyatt, I will happily sit in traffic, and listen to the radio. Sometimes it is the only time I have to myself.

21. I can't wrap presents. Seriously. I suck at it. THe paper is always wrinkled and creased. Steve laughs at me. HE usually wraps presents for me.

22. I don't like to cook. However, I do like to bake.

23. I don't have a favorite season. I see the beauty in each season, so therefore I take the good and the bad associated with each one.

24. I don't mind growing older. Age doesn't bother me. (I just like to pick on Tigger about being old.)

25. I have never played an organized sport. Ever. Not counting gym class in high school.

26. When I was younger, I used to hit my sister so my mom would send me to my room as a punishment. That way I could read in peace and quiet.

27. I have only seriously dated one person. I married him. I have never felt that I missed anything by not dating lots of people.

28. My favorite food is boiled seafood. Particularly boiled crabs/boiled crawfish/boiled shrimp.

THere I am done... 28 random facts about me. Now no one else tag me..

Little Known Facts about ME!!!

I was tagged... FOUR FREAKING TIMES... I have to list 7 random facts about myself for each tag... that's 28 facts... I will do some a little at a time. I have to think to find that much out about myself. Here we go...

1. I have to sleep with one foot sticking out of the covers at all times. No matter how cold it is.. one foot must be out of the covers. If the foot gets covered, I feel like I am suffocating.

2. I have never riden in a taxi, a public bus, or a train. I am not counting school buses or the tour bus or the train at the zoo. I mean PUBLIC transportation. Never done it. I don't think I would know how to use the public bus system in Baton Rouge. I am sure that I would be lost forever riding on the bus around town.

3. I am really close to my two sisters. We have always been close, even growing up. We seldom really fought or argued.

4. I have a birthmark. It's on the upper part of my chest. Nearer my shoulder on the right side... it looks like a strawberry, you can barely see it now, but when I was younger it was bright red. THen it slowly faded to a bruise colored mark. But it was located in such a spot that as a teenager, people would think it was a "hickey". OH and when I get mad, it turns BRIGHT red.

5. My favorite food is boiled crabs (well boiled crawfish and boiled shrimp too.)

6. I have never wanted to live anywhere but in Louisiana. I love where I live.. the music.. the food... the history... it's a unique and special place to me.

7. I do not have a favorite color. I like lots of colors, but none I consider my favorites.

8. I love music. Any kind of music will do, although I really do not like Rap/hip hop or opera. My choice in music again depends on my mood. BUT the music that makes me want to get up and dance the most is cajun music.

9. I speak very little cajun french. Sad but true fact. My grandfather never taught his children to speak it. It's a dying language. This is because most cajun french children in the past were forbidden to speak cajun french in schools. They would be punished for not speaking English.

10. I love jewelry. BUT my favorite type of jewelry would have to be charm bracelets. I just adore them.

11. My dream car: 1968 Mustang. I would settle for a 2007 Mustang GT. In the dark blue color please.

12. I watch very little tv. I may listen to the tv, but usually it is just background noise while I read a book.

13. I love puzzles. NOt jigsaw puzzles, those aggravate me. But crossword puzzles. My favorite puzzle magazine is the "variety" type anagrams/crostics/crosswords type magazines.

14. My favorite board game is scrabble. But no one in my family will play with me anymore. They say I know too many words.

15. I love spending time with my husband. He knows me well enough to know how to make me laugh, and how to pull me out of funky moods. We enjoy playing different types of board games together. Even just sitting next to him while we both read our own book is fun.

That's enough for tonight I will add some tomorrow.

Getting ready for a trip

Nothing much going on. I have been spending time getting ready for a trip with Steve. No Wyatt. I feel a little guilty, but a little relieved as well.

Last night we began the packing process. I still marvel at the differences in men vs. women when it comes to packing. His toiletries fit in one small container: shaving creme, razor, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush. Mine on the other hand needs a small u-haul: shaving gel, razor, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, hairbrush, hairspray, volumizing gel, anti frizz stuff, curling iron, blow dryer, perfume, all of my makeup, scrunchie, headbands, makeup remover, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, and the list continues. LEt's not start on the clothes issue.. that's gonna be a bad bad situation. YOU Must have shoes to match each outfit, you can't wear the same outfit twice, jewelry must match each outfit, and you need multiple outfits for each day.

I can't wait for our trip. A cruise to Cozumel. I'm excited. Now to decide which camera to take.
