In the words of Junie B.- "Wowee-wow-wow!" I am so excited!
I went in to show the Mr. all my followers- he's just happy there are more people to listen to me....I think he is under the impression it lessens the amount of time I ramble on!
This is the copy of the comment I replied to Kristin with last night: (revised)
Ok here's the deal.. When I was student teaching, it was the first time I had ever really heard my married name with the Mrs. attached....
I student taught in first grade...My married name is "Quarles"....ok, now say Mrs. Quarles three times fast....what do you get? Miss Squirrels!
It was cute during year one and year two...
but our room now gets referred to as Miss Squirrels and the Nutty Bunch....the office staff will buzz my room and make little squirrel noises....and EVERY greeting card that has a squirrel on it makes it way to my mailbox! (Oh, and I LOVE fall- every acorn that is found at the bus stop finds a home on my desk- I could start a reforestation project from my desk drawer!!!)
And the cute little squirrel for the profile pic~ that will change as soon as I take a good one!!!! I thought I had a good one on my class site until the Mr saw it and asked where my sword and buccaneers were----said my hair looked like Captain Hook!!-(Needless to say, he had to use some "pixie dust" to drum up some dinner that night)!
Maybe I'll find a wig for the squirrel!
(get used to the squirrel...har har)
I will have to take pictures of all the squirrels that I receive for holidays and post them.....all I can say is -
Thank goodness my last name doesn't rhyme with skunk!
I am excited about my new blogging experience....I'm a dork because now I have 3 followers and I am giddy!!!
So that was last night and in less than 24 hours- I have 7 times that many!!!
Whoo hoo! Thank you, Kristin! (And I so get the two "i"s....My mother gave me an "i" at the end of Staci and you can NEVER find anything personalized!!!)
thank you all for following- I hope when you come back to visit you either find something you can use, something that inspires you, or something that just makes you smile!
