The little gal is.....


She and some of her classmates made the front page of our little town's newspaper. Her class went Green Earth Day NUTS.....but that IS how this amazing class rolls!!

Today the TAKS testing days are officially OVER! YEA!! Can't wait to see these "newspaper famous 3rd grader" asked, "Now a quadrilateral has 7 sides right?" followed with, "What day is July 4th on?"
Hellooooooo Summer School!!!......................

20 Years? Seriously!?

It has almost been TWENTY YEARS since I graduated High School! Unbelievable, sort of. In some ways though it really does seem like 20 years! Tomorrow we are having a "Make Stuff for The Reunion" party here. I can't wait, it'll be so fun to see some of these girls that I haven't seen in well.......20 years!!

A nice change....

I never changed schools growing up.
I only lived in one house until I got married.
I've only changed jobs twice in my 15 yrs as a nurse.
(This week being the 3rd.)
As I gradually creep closer to the age of 40.....
I'm learning some things about myself.

I'm not real good with change.
This week I started a new job and I think I know now how that new little kid from another city feels when he moves to a new town and starts a new school and tries to fit in with the "cool kids".
My new job is with some of the best of the best and at times, I feel like I'm from Mars, speaking another language. I have alot to learn, but I am open and ready for this change.

It's a nice change.
I guess I'm just getting "set in my ways" as I grow.........older.
Am I really turning into "that old lady" already?! Really?

Tomorrow is the BIG DAY!

It's 11pm and in 7 hours I'll be starting my NEW JOB! eeeek! I should really be asleep but:

#1. I can't!
#2. I'm afraid I won't hear any of the 4 alarms that I have set.
#3. I'm too nervous.
#4. I'm too excited.
#5. Did I mention that fear of oversleeping thing? That would be the BEST 1st impression ever!?
#6. I'm too busy checking and rechecking the 4 alarms I set!

Good grief, I'm gonna be tired at 2:30pm tomorrow!

Trip to the Vet.....

You might think you would dread a trip to the vet.....
For starters....It's crazy expensive..
It usually means one of your precious furry friends is ill....
and...It probably means you need to be calling a carpet cleaner out..because the pet was sick...ALL OVER the carpet!

Usually, I do DREAD going to the vet, but this time was a little different.
Just last week I was over at a girlfriend's house and I was watching her poor little cat drag it's casted leg across the kitchen floor. My girlfriend and I started discussing vets. She told me who she took her poor little broken kitty to and I told her about the vet we take our animals to and how I just love his kind nature. She started laughing hysterically and said, "OH! I bet you go to Dr. *" (names are being withheld to protect the innocent) She went on to reveal that she and her neighbor were JUST talking about Dr. * and how all the women in our town LOVE to go him and they all make sure they have their lipstick on before going because he is just so darn yummy for the eyes!
I had never really looked at Dr. * in this glazed-over dazed-over way before?....I had always just seen him as a great Vet with a thermometer stuck up my dog's tailpipe?!
So today when my little Yorkie came down with an inflammatory bowel fare-up, I sped off to Dr. *'s office...yippee! I couldn't help but giggle inside as I thought about my recent conversation with my gal pal, when he entered the exam room.
Then I quickly broke into a cold sweat as I realized I had not showered, had a Yorkie in my lap with bloody diarrhea, and only had clumpy Carmex glossing my chapped lips as I dazzled the adorable Dr. * with my gagging stories of the contents of my Yorkie's "mudpies" she had left me all over my carpet!

Irresistible, yep, that's me alright!
