Emotional exhaustion

I am emotionally exhausted today. I fell like I need to vent and then have a good cry.
I'm confused. I don't know if I should stand firm. Standing firm is difficult for me. I'm a people pleaser.
Sometimes my job is really hard... Confusion
since I'm not really telling you anything I'll shut up
How about some pretty pictures.







I didn't actually cry. (I think I'm missing the crying gene or I'm an emotionless robot.)

Wait I just thought of something way better than a good cry. The Flight of the Concords song "I'm not crying"

word treasures

I have seen many blog post of peoples favorite words. As a lover of words I find these so interesting. I have decided to share some of mine from time to time. (I have a lot)

Here are my first five.

  1. Lovely- I use this on a lot. Nice is okay but if I had the choice between nice and lovely... no contest.
  2. Filigree- It's just so much fun to say plus it means delicate and fanciful.
  3. Ingenue- I remember learning the meaning of this word as a girl and hoping I would become an ingenue. (in my mind that was the black version of Lauren Bacall)
  4. Peruse- I think the only reason I like this word is because I love to peruse books.
  5. Somnolent- I don't know why but I like to use big words to say ordinary things sometimes.

Weekend adventures

I had a really lovely time this past weekend.
On Saturday I went to Peddlers Village with my family.

The weather was amazing, clear, beautiful, and the perfect temperature.
We window shopped and had cupcakes and coffee. Yum!

Then we went to the giggle berry fair which is in peddlers village. we played video games and won lots of tickets for my niece and nephew. My sister played Dance dance revolution until we were about to pass out. The kids rode on the the Ferris wheel it was a great time
love these kind of weekends!
Hope yours was just as nice.

My sister and niece


My mother and my nephew

I still have a ton of vacation pictures from Disney World.

Here are the few with me in them. I am much more comfortable behind the lens, but it's good to face your fears. Right?

October First!


It is the first of October which means I am going to be busy busy busy. Don't worry thought it is a fun busy. There is a never ending list of cute, fun, and creative art projects and crafts for my class to do this month.
In terms of my costume I may have hit road block. I don't want to stress about making my costume and I cant find a ready made one of what I wanted to be so I have to figure something else out. I just don't know.


In other news I may have caused one of my students to need therapy in their feature. My class listened to this scary story and she was really scared. Last year it was my classes favorite and this year the other kids really liked it but I'm pretty sure we wont be listening to it again any time soon. I feel so bad. Poor kid.
