Spring Break

Spring Break is finally here. Last year I went to Paris and London for Spring Break. My plans aren't quite as extravagant this year, but I'm still very excited. I'm headed to Okc Wednesday to finally get to meet Jackson! I will be celebrating my brother's birthday as well as my sister-in-law's birthday Wednesday night with my family. Thursday I'm headed to Dallas with my mom to visit family and go shopping! Yea!

Chad and I are going to a St. Patrick's Day potluck day dinner with our Sunday School class Tuesday night. I'm supposed to bring something Irish. Hmmm. I have no idea here. Any suggestions?

I finished reading Twilight and I'm now reading New Moon. They are very good books if you're looking for something to read.

I was reminded this weekend that I really need to find a job for the summer. I was inside all day Saturday and completely bored out of my mind. Poor Chad. Sometimes I turn into a little whiny kid. I'm just not sure what to do with myself when I have free time. I feel like I need to be going somewhere or doing something.

The weather has been warmer lately, so I decided to switch my clothes. You know, unpack my summer clothes and pack up my winter sweaters. This means another trip to the resale shop. I love taking my clothes there when I'm finished wearing them. I don't like to keep things I don't use and this way I'll have a little extra shopping money. Cindy's Resale in Norman is my favorite place to take things. It's right by the mall.

I'm trying to motivate myself to run. This should be a little easier now that it's sunny, warmer, and stays light outside later. I've added a thing on my page that is supposed to track my running if I did it right, but I'm not sure I set it up right. We'll see. Anyway, join in if you want. I added the app to my phone and it gives you workouts to do...pretty neat. You should try it.

This weeks news... -
Dave Ramsey will be leading the service at LifeChurch for the next two weeks. (Sunday, March 15th and Sunday, March 22nd.) You can watch the service live online or if you want, you can download the podcast later in the week. If you don't subscribe to the podcasts, I recommend it. They are really good. I usually listen/watch them while I workout. Anyway, I like Dave Ramsey. I think he's a godly man and wise when it comes to financial stuff. There's a link on the right side of my page if you're interested.

Twilight -
Thanks for all of your book suggestions. My list has grown. I'm trying to read a book each month, which for me is a lot. I used to hate reading, but I've grown to really enjoy it. Before, I was doing good if I read one book a year, so this was a pretty big jump for me. I went to the bookstore last Thursday to get Twilight. I've heard so much about it and so many of my students have read it. I figured if they can make it through a book that thick, so can I. It's almost 500 pages. I'm almost under a week. It's one of those books that's hard to put down. It's a good story. I recommend it if you're looking for something to read. I think there are 4 books in the series and I plan on reading all of them.

4 more days till Spring Break!!!!

Summer job -
Usually I find a fun place to work for the summer. I'm not really sure what I'm going to do here in Miami. I'd like to do something. I don't want to just sit around all summer, but there aren't many places to work around here. I guess I could drive to Joplin and work at the mall or something. I don't know...any ideas?

There's not a lot going on right now. I hope you all have a great week!

Teacher of the Year!!!

I won Teacher of the Year at Miami High School!!! I wasn't very chipper when I got to work Monday (I'm not what you would call a morning person...especially on Mondays), but this news definitely brightened my day!
