Tis the Season

I'm sure many of you are feeling the same as me, overwhelmed with the amount of things to be done and the short amount of time you have to do it in. I feel like I have been so neglectful of many things. Brittainy called me today and told me it was time to update my blog. :)

I bought a new bay window a few weeks ago and Rich and a couple of friends put it in. It took about two weeks to have it ready enough for me to start decorating the living room. I still feel behind in all that I have to do!

Timmy went to see Santa on the 2nd and asked for two things that weren't on his list before. Those elves have been busy trying to get everything for the big day.

Last weekend Miss Mackenzie spent some time with me and while I didn't get much done while she was here I enjoyed every minute of it. A few weeks ago Brittainy called to tell me that Mackenzie got a sweater that she knew I would buy for myself if it came in my size. She was right! Look at cute Mackenzie is in it!

I've been a bad blogger

Friday morning Timmy woke up feeling a bit under the weather so I kept him home from school. I was already to go so I ran to school to drop of my plans for my sub. On the way home my car all of a sudden became so LOUD! I had an appointment for yesterday to get an oil change so I had the dealership look at it. I needed about $1200 worth of repairs on my 12 year old car. I didn't want to put that kind of money into it so I bought a new car! Ten years ago I bought a used Saturn (2 years old) and it lasted me 10 years. I guess I got my moneys worth.

I hope this new one serves me just as well :)

So, this is my new baby!!! What do you think!

Ahhhh, YOUTH

I was introducing the letter "A" to my kindergarten class today. I was showing them a series of cards with words that begin with the letter A. I got to antenna and of course they asked what that was. I told them long, long ago before there were remote controls and cablevision people had to use an antenna to be able to watch TV.

One of the girls raised her hand and asked how people changed the channel if there weren't remote controls. I showed the class how a person would have to get up, walk to the televison and actually turn a knob!

In disbelief she looked at me and said...."you mean EVERY TIME they wanted to change the channel?".

Happy Halloween

Are you surprised that Timmy was a pirate? I think I heard somewhere that being a pirate was one of the top costumes for boys this year.
Timmy posed for a series of "dramatic poses" tonight. You'd think his mother had a camera in front of him all the time LOL!

Timmy is the only child in our neighborhood. We usually visit 10-12 houses and are done. One of our neighbors fills a plastic pumpkin for him every year. Sadly, I usually end up throwing that candy away because they smoke CONSTANTLY and the candy stinks! I still, however, appreciate their kindness.

Well, let's hope blogger is working since I couldn't post anything at all this past weekend.

A new beginning

Yesterday Brittainy and Jay got married. It was a beautiful day. Brittainy looked very lovely and Jay looked quite handsome :). It feels a bit odd to say I am a mother in law. I've considered Jay a member of the family for quite some time now. It is just that title mother in law that is hard to comprehend. As long as I don't become the brunt of anyone's jokes I guess I'll be fine with it.

I am very happy for the two of them and wish them a long, happy life together. Congrats Britt and Jay!!

Things that make you smile :)

This year in my kindergarten class I have a little boy who only speaks Spanish. I speak NO Spanish. Ok, I lied...I can count a little bit in Spanish. It has been a struggle to try to communicate with this child. I try to speak in Spanish to him. Apparently I don't do it well because he laughs at me when I try. We have had some difficult days to say the least!

At the end of the day today when I walked the children to buses, this little boy headed towards his bus, turned around, came back to me and hugged and kissed me. Then he ran off to his bus.

Oh, it just touched my heart and I can't stop thinking of the look on his face. It makes all those difficult days all worth while to have a moment like that!

Things that go bump.

I was sitting in my class this afternoon working with a group of children. We were enthusiastically reading Little Me, our first book with more than two words, when the phone rang. My assistant answered the phone and I heard her politely say "she's busy with a lesson now". Then after a few moments of listening she passed me the phone.

It was the school nurse. It seems my son ran into the playground and got a nice goose egg on his head along with a bloody nose! She suggested he go home to rest and take it easy. I brought him to my mother's and headed back to school.

I'm sure the picture doesn't do it justice, but here's his poor forehead.

One of the joys of being the mother of a boy!

The beginning of number 9.

Today after school I went to the dentist to begin the first stage on my ninth crown...yes, I said 9! Three are due to falling off my bike when I was 12. The rest are age and poor dental care when I was a kid. Because the first crowns were done when I was 12 (33 years ago) they needed to be redone.

I am still feeling the effects of the novacane. You know that feeling that you have had a stroke and feeling like your lip is three sizes it normal size. Friday I go back for the second step in the process.

I joke with my dentist. I tell him that I believe he is cursing my teeth. Once I think I have everything taken care of another tooth breaks.

I remember when I was a child my mother would have me write 10, 15, 25 times (depending on the infraction) I WILL BRUSH MY TEETH EVERY DAY! (picture Bart Simpson at the chalkboard here LOL!). I should have listened to my mother better!

I expect to be the only elderly lady in the nursing home without dentures :)

Aren't they cute?

I know, I know I am not posting enough. I just don't have too much happening in my life to write about. School is keeping me VERY BUSY. I promised my friend Beverly that I would update my blog. So here goes.

Today Mackenzie came over to play in the yard a bit. Timmy and she had fun with the ball and some of the old toys that Timmy hasn't been able to part with yet. :) Mackenzie adores her uncle Tim and he feels the same way about her.

Yesterday Mackenzie, Britt and Jay went apple picking and brought some apples back to us. Tonight I am making some apple crisp to have after dinner. I love the smell of fall and "fall" foods. The weather is just a bit warm for my idea of fall but it's still lovely out.

I have had an awful headache all day. I am hoping it's an allergy related headache and the Allegra I took will help it go away. I was really hoping to get more done around the house but I'm feeling a bit under the weather. Only one day of my three day weekend felt productive. I feel like I wasted my time at home.

Well, friends I told you I was boring :)

Ahoy Matey!!!

Yesterday was Timmy's birthday party with his friends from school. I had eight boys here living the life of a pirate :) I am thinking I don't have too many years left of having the boys do a craft at a birthday party so I took full advantage of it this year. They boys made hooks for their hands out of black paper cups, cardboard and tinfoil.

Here's Timmy doing his best pirate interpretation LOL!!

I bought some wooden boxes at A.C. Moore and my sister stained them for me a couple of weeks ago. I filled them with plastic gold coins. The boys used glue dots and attached jewels to their treasure chests. They also added a few jewels to their treasure chests as well.

They all had a great time, enjoyed their pizza, played hard and we are done until next year!
Today is the party for my granddaughter who will be one on Tuesday. It's also her dad's birthday today. This is a busy month in our family!!! Hopefully next weekend I'll get a break LOL!

School is back in session

The beginning of a school year is just so exhausting!!! I don't think a lot of people realize how much work the first week of kindergarten is. The children come to school so excited and ready to "play" and the poor kids need to practice waiting: waiting for everyone to check for notes, waiting to see who is buying lunch, waiting to find out who brought peanutbutter (we have allergies in our school), waiting to learn routines and schedules, waiting to take a turn to talk, waiting for a turn with a favorite toy. All they really want to do is play with their friends. We spend the first week slowly introducing rules and routines.

We also have a lot to do to get ready for these little guys. I felt like a walking zombie these past two weeks. I don't seem to have much of a break for the next couple of weeks either.

Back to School!

After a glorious 70 something days off it was back to school today. I don't know why after 16 years I had the "can't sleep because school starts tomorrow jitters". I woke up at 2:00 this morning and at 4:15 when I was still awake I chose to just get up! I made a lasagna for dinner and another to freeze. I emailed a few people and took a leisurely amount of time getting ready!

Most of my friends think I'm a little "off" because I like to go to school early. I get there at 6:30 some mornings and 7:00 others even though I don't need to be there until 8:15. I really enjoy the quite morning when no one is there. There's not waiting for the copy machines or laminator. I can get some work done on the computer. It really lovely!

The thing I haven't figured out is how the staff can't seem to realize that we need the same things on the first day EVERY YEAR!!! Why is it a shock when we ask for, oh say, a class list, appointment schedules, bus lists etc. Every year there is always mistakes over the schedule, this year has been no exception.

We spend the next three days meeting the incoming kindergarten children one on one and then they all come for the first full day on Monday.

Here's to another school year. I hope it's a good one!

My baby is 8!!

Yesterday was a happy day in our home for Timmy. He can't believe that he is 8 years old LOL!
It was bittersweet for me. It was exciting that it was Timmy's birthday but sad that it was the last day of my summer vacation!

I asked Timmy was the best part of his 7th year was. He said Mackenzie being born was the best. He liked that Philip Jr. (the fish) didn't die. First grade was pretty good too! The worst part of his seventh year was that three fish died.

My birthday wish for Timmy is to always be happy, enjoy his creativity and to continue being the great kid that he is!

I know this has been around hundred's of times....but it's so true!!!

TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED the1930's 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's !!

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes.

Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking.

As infants & children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, booster seats, seat belts or air bags. Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle. We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this.

We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank koolade made with sugar, but we weren't overweight because .


We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the street lights came on.

No one was able to reach us all day.

And we were O.K.

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride downthe hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD's, no surround-sound or CD's, no cell phones, no personal computers!, no Internet or chat rooms.......WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.

We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rangthe bell, or just walked in and talked to them!

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of.
They actually sided with the law!

These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever!

The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL!

If YOU are one of them . . . CONGRATULATIONS!

What was that sound?

There are nights when I lie in bed and out of the blue hear a popping sound. This has been going on for a couple of years. At first I really didn't pay too much attention to it. Then I began to try to figure out just where the sound was coming from. When we first bought our house 10 years ago the outlet in our bedroom needed to be repaired. After hearing the popping sound I thought maybe it was the outlet. As often and as hard as I tried I couldn't pin point the origin of the sound. At one point I would put the extension cord on the bed so I could tell if the popping was coming from that. Every night (not that it happened every night) that I heard it I thought I really need to call an electrician. By morning I would forget about it until the next time I heard the pop! Finally after months and months of trying to figure out what it was I had an idea. There was "something" in my room that I thought could be making the noise. I took it out and what do you know? The popping started in another room. I found the source of the pop. It was my rainstick!!!! After I solved the mystery all I could think of was how embarrassed I would have been had I actually called the electrician. He would have laughed all the way back to the shop thinking that this was the fire hazard I had been so afraid of!

take care,

Rainsticks are ceremonial musical instruments used to invoke the rain spirits. They are made by people who live in the deserts of northern Chile. In Chile, rainsticks are traditionally made from dead cactus tubes with hundreds of cactus spines hammered into the tube. Tiny lava pebbles cascade gently through the tube, sounding much like rain.

Plastic Surgery

We had the news on the other night and the story was about plastic surgery. Timmy asked me what it was. I explained that it was an operation that people have to change the way they look. I told him that lots of times people have this surgery because they want to look younger.

My *sweet* boy looked at me and said, "Do you need plastic surgery?".

Kids....gotta love 'em!

On a side note, what is it with "older" actresses who think that using botox to make their lips look obscenely HUGE is attractive!!! UGH!

Philip Jr.

We did it! Philip Jr. joined our family today! We are hoping that Philip Jr. will have many years with us. If we can make it past the week mark I will feel pretty good. Last winter when Philip (the original) died we made three failed attempts to replace him! Each time our new family member "expired" within days. The first sign was the white specks on him. Keep your fingers crossed, say a prayer, send positive thoughts...we'll take it all!

Timmy thought that by naming this fish Philip Jr. it would bring good luck since Philip lived for so long. Let's hope this guy has some spunk!

The clerk at the pet store said that beta fish aren't as "hardy" as they used to be because the demand for them is so large that they are being bred at a speedy rate. I did find out that they have a three day "replacement" policy if needed! Oh how I hope not!

Updated to say he made it through the night! And, unlike the fish that died, this one is actually eating. I took a better pic today so I updated Philip's picture as well. Keep those positive thoughts coming :)

Are you a dreamer?

By that I mean do you dream? I have several dreams a night that I can recall. Sometimes they are trivial and other times they stay with me for days! I have in the past had dreams over and over again only to find out that they come true!

I have other dreams that are about the houses I have grown up in and other family houses. These dreams I have had repeatedly and they have happened for more years than I can recall. I always dream about "secret" rooms full of treasures. One of the houses ( I lived in this one) I dream about has a room that is really a store with thousands of trinkets in it! The other house is my paternal grandmothers house. There is also a room that has tables and tables full of things you might find at an antique store.

Then I have dreams about houses that are so full of evil I can feel it in my dreams? I wonder if dreaming about houses is symbolic for my feelings of security. Any armchair interpreters out there?

A Pirate's Life for Me

Timmy has a renewed fascination with pirates again. I'm sure it has a lot to do with the recent release of Pirates of the Caribbean. Though last Christmas he certainly received a lot of pirate ships and toys! It just must be a boy thing.

When we went to the fair on Monday there was a display of sheds and this was his highlight of the fair. He asked to go back to this ship several times.

The sketch for this layout is from Jen Caputo and the kit is Here Be Pirates by Tracy Rivera.

Barnstable County Fair

I remember being a child going to the Barnstable County Fair with my family. It was always so much fun going on the rides, playing the games and having that "fair food" that is NO GOOD for you! The fair has been a yearly event since 1844. I can't imagine what it would have been like back then. I am sure there were still the animal exhibits and the displays of crafts and goods.

Yesterday I went to the fair with Timmy, Brittainy and Mackenzie. We left our house at noon. I stopped to pick up Britt and Mackenzie but we had to wait for them to get ready. We finally got to Falmouth at 2:00 only to find out the fairgrounds didn't open until 4:00. After a quick lunch and Walmart trip we headed back to the fair.

The first thing Timmy wanted to do was get some cotton candy. He took a few bites and decided he didn't want anymore. The highlight for Timmy was an exhibit of sheds. Yes, I said sheds! He found one that looked like a ship and of course decided that it was a pirate ship! Brittainy had me take a few pictures of Mackenzie in front of the cutest little pink and white cottage shed!

We spent quite a bit of time looking at the animals and enjoying some of that "NO GOOD" for you fair food and headed home. We spent more time driving and waiting than we actually spent at the fair! All in all though it was a nice day :)

Here's Timmy driving the pirate ship! Below is Mackenzie in front of the little cottage.

Another one coming down the slide.

On the last day of school this year one of my students brought me a rose. His sister ( I had her five years earlier) brought me one as well. It was nice to be remembered in such a sweet way.

I found this challenge on Simon Says Scrap blog and thought I would try my hand at it. I also found a site for templates yesterday on Jen Caputo's blog. I am loving those! I don't remember where the stamps came from. I'll have to look into that!

My Update

I've wondered how I was going to keep this updated over the summer. I don't really do much of anything except enjoy my time off.

This week however I took a three day course called Teacher's Reading Academy. Our school has a new reading program we are beginning next year. We are using the Scott Foresman program and the workshop, though not related to Scott Foresman, was very insightful. I am glad I went. It will be a lot of work but the advantages will be wonderful!.

I am contemplating a web design workshop next week. I had better make my decision soon since it starts on Tuesday. I might be too late as it is.

I broke down today and finally turned on the AC. It's not that I am opposed to the AC I just hate when the electric bill comes!

Brittainy came over today with her laptop so we could digi scrap together. I got one page done and she didn't get to one. She confessed to being a mad woman searching the web for all the freebies she can find....that's my girl!

Speaking of girl. Mackenzie had on the cutest little dress today. I had to get a picture of her in it.

By the Sea

I was blog hopping (or blopping as I like to call it) and came across this kit by Faith True and had to buy it! The kit is called Cape Cod Memories and being a Cape Codder I just couldn't pass it up. The word art is from Susan Walker. The note paper is from Julie Howard.

Last May Timmy, Rich and I took a trip to a local beach because I wanted to collect some shells for a school project. I didn't find any shells that day but Timmy found a bucket full of goodies, including some seaweed that he played with for a couple of days...ewwww. Yes, he kept it outside. There are still some crab parts and skate casings in the backyard from his endeavors that day.

Look what Brittainy did!!

I've been trying to convince Brittainy to try scrapbooking. Bless her disorganized heart, paper scrapping just isn't for her...BUT....I knew she would like digi scrapping. While she was here today I showed her how to do it. Here's what she made:

The kit is Summer Lovin from Plain Digital Wrapper.

Here's the other one she did all by herself.

The background is from ShelbyDesignShoppe and the ribbons and freedom circle are from Leah Riordan (mommyish designs) the beaded word and beads are from Gina Miller's blog.

I just emailed Brittainy a few links for free digi kits to get her started. I can't wait to see what she'll come up with. Now, I'm going to be a good mom and have these printed for her :)

Trying out my PSE 4

Back in December I bought myself PSE 4 and didn't install it until today. I know, I excuse. It has taken a little getting used to since I have been using PSE 2. Since I loved that picture of Tim and Mackenzie that I took today so much, I decided to try to make a layout using the new program. I still have a few glitches to work on and LOTS and LOTS to learn.

The kit was a freebie from Penny Springman that I got here. The date stamp is from Jenn Star.

Mackenzie is giving Uncle Tim a kiss! Now how stinkin' cute is that!!!

My mother, Britt, Jay and Mackenzie came over to have a cook out with us tonight. Even just a few days makes such a difference in Mackenzie. She is just so funny and cute. She likes to give kisses and of course the minute I took my camera out she wouldn't do it anymore. I finally was able to get one picture of her kissing Timmy.

As usual I made too much food today and ended up sending everyone home leftovers. I saved nothing for us. I was just (still am!) too full to even think of ever eating again!!

I Vant to bite your neck!!

Is it just a boy thing? Yesterday we went out to dinner for our anniversary. I wanted to take a picture of Timmy before we left. He thought he would just sneak those teeth into the picture. He loves to put in the vampire teeth and pretend he is going to bite! I honestly think he believes that when these are in his mouth he becomes a vampire LOL!

It's not only vampires, he also believes sometimes that he is a super hero, a ninja, a hip hop name it! I thought when I had a boy that dress up clothes would not be a staple in our house. WRONG! We have buckets of costumes. There's batman, spiderman, vampires, yu gi oh! If there isn't a costume to fit the need Timmy will improvise. I have the funniest picture of him in his underwear, his blue blanket pinned around his neck, snow boots and gloves on :)

Imagination is a wonderful thing to have. I keep marveling in his imagination knowing all too soon that these childhood fantasies will disappear!

So, my dear Tim, bite away if you must!

Mackenzie and Uncle Tim

It is still hard for my to believe that my 7 year old son is an uncle! Today Mackenzie came over for a couple of hours and she and Timmy played in the fire engine tent.

Timmy was trying to show her how to drive using the steering wheel. She was more interested in pulling on the flap.

Brittainy has already told me that as soon as Timmy outgrows this she wants me to save it for her kids. Now, when I mentioned this to him he was in no way ready to give it up. It has been in the back of his closet for years but just like any kid he needs it....he really needs it!

The story of Beasley and Bluesy

Three years ago when Timmy was sick and in the hospital he was given a TY plush toy, Beasely. He became very attached to this dog, so much so that Christmas of that year he asked Santa for a brother for "Stuffy" (what he named his dog). Santa pulled through (what a guy!) and Timmy got "Fluffy". A year later he asked for yet another brother and again Santa pulled through and "Scruffy" joined our family. To this day they go every where with him still! He loves those dogs!

For Easter this past year Mackenzie received Bluesy the cat (kind of an odd name choice for a pink cat). Brittainy tells me that she LOVES her cat. Bluesy is in desperate need of a bath but Mackenzie can't seem to part with it. Being the good grandmother that I am I ordered two more on line so Mackenzie can always have a back up.

Now unlike Stuffy, Fluffy and Scruffy, I believe Mackenzie will only be aware of one Bluesy. The extras should arrive any day in the mail.

Oh what we don't do for our children...and grandchildren :)

Well, It's certainly been a while

I finished school last week. What a long couple of weeks the last few where. I spent every day afters chool cleaning and packing my room up for the summer. The custodians take out all the furniture, mop, wax and shampoo the carpets over the summer. It takes me about 2 weeks to put everything back LOL! I only do a little at a time.I am so happy to be home for the summer! It's great having the time off! Unfortunately I spent the first weekend home sick!!!

Then when I finally feel up to getting out of bed my internet didn't work. I have some major work to have done outside of the house. The cable underground is shot and they are going to have to burrow under our NEW driveway to replace it. Before that can happen DIG SAFE has to come! Right now I have a temporary fix until the work can be completed in the next couple of weeks.I am doing my best holding off turning the AC on in the house. It's just too stinkin' expensive! My bill is so high in the summer. The first night that I can't sleep because it's so hot you can bet it will be going on and then I'll be back here complaining how much it cost me LOL!I will certainly try to update more often for the few of you who actually read this LOL!

Family Fun Night

Tonight was family fun night at school. I put in a 12 hour day and boy am I tired. I am glad that I stayed for the event. It was fun seeing all the families and I got to take pictures of the event. Our PTA put it on and it was just the perfect weather for it. There were activities in the gym and outside of the school. The big hits were the face painting, and the pizza. The lines for each were pretty long!

Water balloons was pretty fun too! Unfortunately we ran out of water balloons too early!

Timmy seemed to enjoy the pizza the best! It was so good that we ran out and had to order more!

I love this picture of the pizza with the side of, that's one happy family eating tonight :).

I think the PTA raised a good chunk of money. I will be curious to see what was raised.
