So here's what's been going on, in a completely ridiculous random order:
No sleep!- With the exception of this weekend in VA Beach, I have had the WORST sleep ever! All last week and last night I have not been able to sleep at ALL. Last night/this morning I was up before my alarms went off! I literally toss and turn the entire night. It's awful!! One night last week I had taken 2 excedrin pm pills, and it knocked me out so much that I didn't get up until 7:30am which is the time I usually leave the house! OY. I think tonight I'll just take one pill, and set 4 extra alarms. Wish me luck!
Moving along in the right direction- My school psychologist was nice enough to help me filter through the list of hundreds of therapists in this area who take my insurance. I'm down to two names. Next move: Call and make an appointment! :)
Yoga- Dawn and I went to Yoga last Thursday. We were actually supposed to go the Thursday before that, but we got our dates mixed up. Ah well. It was FANTASTIC. It was such a great workout and so relaxing! It couldn't have come at a more perfect time for me too, I've been so stressed out lately with school. Beth we missed you!
Beach Weekend- I went to VA Beach this weekend to visit Dan. We had a great time! I took Friday off so I left early Friday morning and got there around 2:30pm or so. I took a nap and just a little after I woke up, Dan got home from work. We went and had a yummy dinner at PF Changs and had a fun walk on the beach afterwards. :) On Saturday, we went to an all day art festival that was on the boardwalk. We saw some really bizarre and interesting art. The festival stretched for 20 blocks or so!! IT WAS HUGE! We had some expensive, but tasty vendor food...mmm cheesesteak. A friend of Dan's was staying in VA beach at a really nice hotel for a judge's conference, and didn't need his room for the last night so let us have it! It was awesome! It was a suite and had a flat screen! The hotel was right on the beach and had a really nice pool. After the art show, we went back to the hotel and stayed at the pool for a while. We went home and then went out to dinner at a cute italian restaurant. On Sunday, we did a little shopping (hellllooo new wedges!), had some delicious bagels at Beach Bagels, and took a nap for an hour and a half! I left VA Beach around 6ish or so and got home around 10:30pm. It was a great weekend!!
School Clean-Up- From 12:30pm until 6:30pm I was in my classroom....I cleaned, organized, recycled, tossed, dusted, wiped, filed, sorted, etc. etc.....oy! I still have a lot to do!
An hour of Me-Time- After working so hard today, I took some time out for me and went to get a pedicure. Now my toes look super cute and pretty for the promotion tomorrow andddd for the wedding this upcoming weekend! :) Sweet! Plus the lady must have sensed how stressed I was, because she spent a lot of extra time massaging my feet and legs....maaann I needed that!
Tomorrow night, June 22nd, is our 5th grade promotion (Dan says, "They're getting a raise?")
Promotion is their graduation from 5th grade. It's tomorrow from 4-6pm. I should be writing my "speech" or what I plan on saying about all of my students tomorrow during the ceremony, but instead I am writing a blog post and procrastinatin.
Anyways, here's my outfit...
I found the dress at the mall last year and have only worn it once since I bought it. The shoes are new from this past weekend at VA beach (on sale from $49.00...for $20!!) Gotta love some brightly colored wedges in the summer!! :) And I LOVE how it matches my dress perfectly!
Anyways, I really need to go figure out what to say about my students. This is SO going to make me cry. They drive me nuts, but I don't want them to go!!
Have a great week! :)

*The kid who we will call "Albert" who has a serious anger issue....called me a B*tch for the 3rd time in 2 weeks. Took him to the office. Awesome.
*Someone (I don't know who) wrote in one of my books from the classroom library that I purchased with my own money the F word (which has happened a few times in the past month).
*My entire class was told to move their clip on the behavior chart by another teacher because they were all talking in the hallway for the 3rd day in a row. So the whole class came into my room after recess yelling and whining and throwing their arms up.
*I have a lot of flat out liars in my room who have no trouble getting nasty and tattling on each other but can't freaking tell the truth and tell what they've done themselves. They are better than that.
*I am counting down the days..........I shouldn't be counting down the days. This is when it's supposed to be fun.
All I want to do is curse back at them! That's awful I know because I love all of them, but damn they pissed me off today.

Noises that are repeated over and over again while something else is going on…for instance a pencil tapping on a desk repeatedly as the kids are taking a test (it drives me nuts!). Or last night at the movies, someone had a book and was fanning it towards her face so the flapping of the book made this sound over and over again during the movie.
Bad manners in general. ESPECAILLY when eating food. When you let a person in or let them pass you while driving, and they don’t give the completely necessary thank you wave.
When you’re watching a tv show or movie that you’re in to and someone comes up to you and has a whole conversation with you even when you’re trying to give them the clue that you reallllyyy want to watch this (like pausing it on DVR every time they speak, or looking back at the tv every couple seconds). Can you please wait for a commercial? I never get TV time!
I talked about how I don’t like things being left open…closets, cabinets, etc. Well, let me elaborate…I’ve tried to let it go, but just can’t! For instance, if I see that my dresser drawer is open and part of a shirt is sticking out as I’m walking out the door I will try to go downstairs to continue on my way, but more often than not I will stop mid-stairs and come back up just to fix it, because that’s all I thought about after I saw it. Yep, I’m that crazy. So the annoying part...the feeling that I HAVE to fix it.

I went to the gym twice last weekend, and twice during the week (including tonight)!!
AND I haven't had fast food in weeks!! For the most part, I've been eating pretty well and drinking lots of water.
I really hope if I keep this up, I can get more toned and lose a few pounds to look summer-awesome!!
Wish me luck! :)
Have a great weekend!

Friday: I went to Greene Turtle around 9:30 or so to see Katie R. for her birthday. I was suprised to find Andy Yee there! We talked the whole time and it was really great to catch up with him. Jen was there also. :) My roomies came out to Greene Turtle right around the time Katie's party of people left. I stayed with them until last call at 1am! Crazy!
I don't know if it was the bra I was wearing or what, but DAYYUUM.
Too much boobage for me!

I got there late Friday night. I was soo tired I pretty much went to sleep right after getting there.
Saturday ~ Dan and I went shopping all day (I haven't done that in forever!) at the Virginia Beach Mall...which by the way is fantastic! It has XXI, H&M, Wet Seal, Charlotte Russe, Aero, AE, Old Navy, Victoria's Secret...all of my favorite mall stores! After shopping, we took a nice walk on the beach right when the sun was about to set. Then we had a great dinner date at Macaroni Grill. Food was fantastic, service was great, and the wine was my favorite part! (house chianti Mmmm)
**Above is a cute little wallet that I got on Saturday! I love it!
**Also, don't you love the yellow nail polish? Kinda crazy, but cute!
Sunday ~ We had a yummy breakfast at home (omelettes and hash browns) and then went to the beach all day. We packed a picnic lunch for the beach. We went to Panera for a great dinner and then went to the boardwalk to watch a jazz band play. I love jazz, I wish it was more popular so I could see it more often.
Monday ~ We went to Waffle House for breakfast first and then went to the beach for a few hours. We came back home, took a nap, and then I got ready to go. I left there around 6:30ish, and thanks to traffic didn't get home until 11:15pm or so.
Overall, a fantastic weekend! Thanks Dan!
Oh and P.S. -- He got me this really awesome wine stopper that's made out of an antique key! (I have a big thing for old antique keys). I'll put a picture up when I take one.
Hope you had a great weekend!
