beautiful fall day

This will be the last week of my husband being away from home. I can't believe it has been four years! AMAZING! =] We had a fabulous weekend. One of our last, seeing as he will be working once he enters back into the civilian world! :) We went to the flea market today and it was 76 degrees out. Perfect, just perfect!

"If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 25 people in his/her office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn't want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he/she might have some conception of the classroom teacher's job." ~Donald D. Quinn.

AAAND, if it wasnt for the classroom teacher- they wouldnt have those jobs in the first place! So, someone tell me WHY we get paid so little???

let go laughing.

miserable people

So, I used to keep a quote notebook and I would love to find that! I seriously love looking up quotes and song lyrics. Music is such a huge part of my life. I would love to write a song one day. A quote I have come across lately is this:

"Most people would rather be certain they're miserable than risk being happy."

How true is this?! I promise, that is not my life. lol. Michael and I are always laughing about something. Again, yes, things are hard- very hard. Work couldn't be more difficult at this time, but I try my best to be positive and work my hardest. It can't be changed, so why complain? Well, I will complain about the fact that I am getting student number 25 tomorrow. AAHHH! Ok. complaining over. lol. I have a job!

I think the miserable people need to move on. Can you believe the man who killed his whole family and then himself? He had to have been miserable. The poor, poor soul and his poor family. It is so sad. How about the man who randomly shot two handguns injuring 31 and killing 12 at Fort Hood today. Again, a miserable person. Believe me, I know several miserable people who you never hear anything positive come from... but to be THAT miserable? To take another human life? I will never understand that.

Pray for those families and those who were lost.

Let go laughing.

germs, germs, germs-

I would love to stop sneezing and blowing my nose! Ugh. Life has been busy but wonderful as usual. Saturday was an amazing Halloween with family and friends. Liz and Marty came over for chili at mom and dads and then we played cards. Michael helped dad make chili on Saturday which made me very happy because it is one of daddy's family secrets. We dressed up as a witch and some scary man with no face. lol. We really had a great night. I couldn't ask for better family and friends. Unfortunately, my soar throat was in full force on Sunday. At least we got an extra hour because I didn't get out of bed until 11:30 and then I stayed in my PJ's all day. That is something I NEVER do. Michael was worried. haha. I hate wasting a day, but I couldn't talk and it was cold, rainy and dark, so why not? Right?! And, my awesome hubby even went and go t me breakfast! Yesterday, I had a soar throat still and came home and went to bed at 6:30. My throat felt much better today, but still very stuffy! I can't believe the amount of times I have been sick this year! Shouldn't I have been sick LAST year?

I'm sad because we were planning to go see Sara and Micah this weekend. Unfortunately, it is a 4 hour drive and Michael has been getting off pretty late on Fridays. It would be a waste to leave here at 8pm and get there at midnight and then have to turn around Sunday morning to get back so he could get back to base. Sara wants us to wait when we can have a whole 2 days. I think it is a good choice though, because I need to relax and get my body well. We'll probably stay home and not do anything. We need that! It has been a while. I do miss my Sara Jade though! :(

Tyler is loving NYC. He ate at the Life Cafe' today and sent me a picture. SO COOL. I love RENT. =] Me, Mom and 'the girls' are going up very soon! We're going to see some shows and spend some time with my brother. I cant wait. I have always wanted to see the big Christmas tree in the city and go ice skating outside! I can't wait to do it. Michael has less than 20 days until he is OUT of the Marines. FINALLY! I can't believe the time is here. Now we can get on with our lives and live the civilian life together!
Happy November folks! Let go laughing! :)
