March goal

My next monthly goal (which I'm making right now) is meatless and sweetless (meaning mostly candy, cookies, baked goods).  I can still drink my coffee with Splenda and I am planning on eating eggs.

Excited to try some great recipes from Pinterest.

Woo hoo!  Eggplant meatballs are being made right now.

Friendly February

I made 24 out of 29 days.  Not bad.  I might be able to send off a few I still have made, but I loved letting others know that I care and they matter.  It was neat to encourage others, even if just for a month.

This month, my goal is to give a card a day.  I fell short today.  However, I received one of the best gifts...a Valentine's Day card from a dear friend.  It brought laughter, tears, and a reminder that I am truly loved by family, friends, and my Father.

This year, I am actually wearing a color besides black on Valentine's Day.

By the way, I'll be giving two cards tomorrow!

I am a hypocrite.  I'll announce it now.  I hate whistling.  Hate it.  Hurts my ears.  It's annoying.  It's one of the first things I ask my class every year to not do. classroom, my ears, my rules (for the most part).  :)

Today, as I'm teaching the most amazing lesson (okay, that's a bit of a stretch), I heard my phone in the background.  I kept talking and had the kids talking too and hoped they wouldn't hear it.  No such luck.  As they began looking for the sound, a student called out, "Hey, who's whistling?"

Yep, my phone's ring tone is a catchy little ditty that involves a little bit of whistling.

I played along and said, "I don't hear it."

And the ringing stopped.  Yay!

Then, one of my students figured it out..."It was your phone!"


"It was whistling."


"You don't like whistling."


Got me kids.  Got me.  Ironic, isn't it?  We had a good laugh together!

New Month

Junk January was great!  I know there's more I could get rid of, but I made $45 from what I donated to a local resell shop.

February is all about showing my friends what they mean to me!  Excited to share why I value their friendship with them!
