anyway....as i look back 10 years ago, i think about what i thought my life at 26 would be. at 16, i thought FOR SURE that by 26 i would have been married for a few years and have at least one, possibly two children. what.in.the.world......was i thinking? garth brooks and i both are thanking god for unanswered prayers at this point in life! don't get me wrong, i'm not opposed to either of those things but i cannot imagine my life like that right now. it is fabulous for some people and so many of my friends have that life, but for me...i'm tired just thinking about it. :) i honestly think teaching will do that to you....working with kids all day will change your thinking about being a parent. there are so many people who need to go to training. ha!
so as i sit here thinking back...i know that i have so many things to be thankful for. a loving family, irreplacable friends, a great boyfriend, perfect little dogs, a great house and a fun job! life is good!
until next time!

like every teacher during the last months of school.......i am done. ready for school to be out and have a little time to let my brain rest and sit out by the pool all day. ahhhhhhhhhh the life! something always happens though......i miss the kids. i miss their little happy faces walking in everyday, i miss their hilarious antics, i miss the "little kid" conversations that happen at their tables when they're working and i miss the big "i love you" i get on a daily basis. even the kids that make you want to pull your hair out still give the best hugs at the end of the day. incredible.
my friend ashley sent this to me for an "afternoon funny" and boy am i glad she did! i'm sure i've seen this before but at this moment......i'm going through the "missing my students" phase so i think it's hilarious! such a cute little thing! even though the sight of the little kitties in the book make me sneeze, i still hope you enjoy!

so what have i been up to on my summer break you ask?...........NOTHING! AND IT FEELS FABULOUS. :) i will be the first to admit that i do get a little stir crazy, which is probably why i thought this blog would be a good idea, but it has been good nonetheless.
here's a picture of the speeding bullet!
i did love that car but let me tell you something....when your boyfriend has a lead foot, driving the pch from san francisco to l.a. is NOT good idea. i had to hold my head out the window for the 4+hour drive. not amusing! i think mark started feeling sorry for me because he started opting to let me get out and take pictures, aka get some fresh air. thank you lord! i have never been so car sick in all of my life! at the end of the big sur area, mark started to get a little woozy too! then he started opting to stop a little more frequently! :)
we also made the trip from san francisco to napa valley, which was so. so. beautiful.
