Awesome Is My Auntie

I stopped by Target after school today to pick up a fairly good deal on Lysol products with the buy 5 get $5 gift card back. Since I was in the area and wanted to wait a bit before driving home with the school traffic, I popped into Old Navy to check the clearance sections to see if there was anything worth getting. 

I did find this shirt in the boys' clearance section, which I thought would've been something to get for my nephew except for the fact that Yoda isn't really the cutest and I'm also not really the kind of person who wants to give a shirt that says something like that, haha. I took a picture just because I thought Howard would appreciate it.

Every night there's always so much to do. I don't start working right away once I get home because I definitely need a break, but then I also fall asleep for a "nap" after I take a shower. My body still hasn't gotten used to being back at work. Tomorrow is going to be a bit tougher what with a meeting right after school and then Back to School Night as well! I won't get home until maybe 9:30pm. I'm going to be so exhausted by Friday morning! Oh well. At least the work is rewarding!

Busy Teacher Life

Just realized it didn't even cross my mind that I needed to post last night!

Back Burner

I have all these ideas of what I want to write down on my blog when big things happen. For example, I wanted to write about how and why I returned to teaching once the school year started. Then there was a barbecue at my sister-in-law's house a few weeks ago along with my nephew's one-month celebration last week. On Saturday, there was a bridal shower for my cousin who's getting married in less than a month! Of course, I didn't finish our Lancaster trip either. And then today, I turned 30! Yes, I am now 30 years old!

Alas, the blog has to be placed on the back burner because school definitely takes priority. Despite the fact that it was my birthday today, I did actually get a good amount of work done. Howard and I didn't really have a big celebration, but we're not really into that sort of thing anyway although I was hoping to have dinner with friends just because it was a milestone birthday. The busyness of September kind of prevented it from happening though. Oh well, there will always be birthdays the following year, God-willing!

Hubs did get me the book light I've been thinking about for some time because when I get to bed, I sometimes have the urge to write in my journal or read, but I don't have a lamp on my side of the bed (no electrical outlet is close enough). I've tried using a flashlight, but it's just way too bright when it's so close to the pages. I had it in my Amazon shopping cart for a while and was waiting to build up gift cards again, but even so, I knew it was a "luxury" item that wasn't needed, so it was definitely fun that he got it for me!

He also brought heroes home for dinner since I wasn't in the mood for anything else. I don't really like going out to eat in general because I'm much more comfortable being at home just in case I don't feel well. I would go out though, but the fact that I have work tomorrow means that I'd be thinking about it the entire time. Instead, maybe we'll go out on a Friday or Saturday in the next few weeks when we don't have a million things on our plates. He also surprised me by bringing home some goat cheese and gorgonzola cheese! Haha, what a dear that he brought home some stinky cheese just for me since he doesn't like it at all! When we were in Lancaster, I loved the Smoke Shop at Kitchen Kettle Village and being able to try cheeses. Oh, and by "try cheese," I mean try like 3 and then decide I might as well just have 3 huge chunks of blue cheese instead of testing others.

You know what really meant the most to me though? The fact that as I graded papers in an attempt to catch up (what teacher is ever really caught up up paperwork?), hubs filled my water bottle for tomorrow and made and packed my lunch for me since I like doing it the night before. You know what's even more amazing? He'd totally do it for me even when it's not my birthday.

My Bad!

I didn't have a chance to write a blog post for today. Whoops.
