"Things I did not accomplish for $200, please..."

Ever have one of those days when you are sooo exhausted at the end, but then can't for the life of you figure out why?

I had two of them .....in a row.
I woke up with the best intentions (aren't those great), but I think I took two naps...do they count as naps if you do not get out of bed in between them? I will have to check on that.

Today was a tad more productive. The MR was not buying the "I am pretending to be sick" spiel anymore. I was trying to use reverse psychology...I said "Well if i get up, I need to head out to the mall and get some shopping done".

I was certain he would quickly close the bedroom door and leave me alone~ no dice....he agreed! Imagine the shock on my face!
There, now you don't have to imagine it....here it is!


We shopped FOREVER!!!! I think it was less of a "lets-get-the-kids-shopping-done" trip and more of a "hey-let-me-drag-you-all-over-town-and-subtly-show-you-all-the-crap-I-want-for-Christmas" trip!

I kept texting ideas to my daughter (told her to write them down....never did check on that ) but we did get lots of the kiddos shopping done....I won't go into detail, because all 3 of them like to look at my blog.....and I know all three of you them have looked in my closet! BUSTED!!!! IT'S ALL BEEN WRAPPED AND MOVED!!!

We went into a few stores looking for things for our daughter (she is 15) and we quickly discovered that WE ARE OLD! We consider ourselves very lucky that she is not one of those grumpy, "everybody hates me" teenagers. She likes goofy, quirky stuff- so we thought we would go into what looked like a good store for her.


The music inside was SO LOUD that "Mel" had to YELL at us to tell us that everything was BOGO 1/2 OFF. She also pointed in the direction of a counter to show us WHERE SHE WOULD BE IF WE NEEDED HER. We couldn't see where she was pointing because it was so freakin' dark in there! We looked (tried to see) a few things and then finally he said ,"Ok, I tried to be cool, but I can't do it." Actually he said, "OK< I TRIED TO BE COOL, BUT I CAN'T DO IT!!!"

That, and going out for Chinese, was all that I did today. But it wasn't on my list, so it doesn't count.....I think I will quickly add it to the bottom of my list and then mark them off!


I was going to go to the classroom today to add pockets to a some books for the class library.  I was going to finish searching for AR quiz numbers for my 942 books that I have in librarything.com. I was going to get my letter to parents for the WInter Celebration finished. I was......but then I logged on and entered a ton of giveaways. I printed off two of Heather's Heart's
centers, cut and laminated them....but all of this was done from my comfy chair.....so no reason really to be so tired!

I also found where  Betsy at Tippytoe Crafts gave me the Liebster Blog Award!! An Award!!!!
"First, I would like to thank my mom and dad".....oops, wrong award!
How cool is it to give out some bloggy hugs to the newbies!


The goal of the award is to spotlight up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers. The rules are:
  1. copy and paste the award on your blog
  2. thank the giver and link back to them
  3. reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog
  4. hope that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers

These are my 5 that I have come across! I am glad we are venturing into this world together!
An Open Door
Tales from a Traveling Teacher
Following Optimism
First Grade Delight
2nd Grade Paradise

Head over there and check out why I'm following! I have lots of ideas bookmarked already!

Oh, I did get something for myself today: they are sandyLion stickers. I got them at Toys R Us. Thought they were too cute and they could inspire me. I need  friends who have a rabbit, owl, raccoon. fox. or bird similarities to their names, that way we can share and get the woodland creatures!

(WHew, It is draggin on..).
My fun activity this week is the parents reading the Christmas stories. I have 3 dads who just came back, and then others who have agreed to  read for us. Some of them are recording them on tape so we can hear them over again.Well it is getting late and I think I am going to have log off!@

I will write a shorter  list tomorr0w....that way I know I can get through it with ease@!

  2. I'm rolling on the floor laughing! I don't think they count as naps if you don't get out of bed in between...at least that's what my family tells me! Congrats on the award and nap on, girl!

  3. Thank you so much for the award! And I'm pretty sure that if you say in bed it doesn't count as 2 naps. Well, unless you needed it to count as too. Have a super weekend!
