new rants and raves

I am so excited to have been given my job back but WHERE is my contract? I hate waiting and I feel like I've done enough waiting. I want to get started on my lesson plans so that I am not far behind like I was last year.

I need clean house to come to my house! I try so hard to get things organized and end up making a bigger mess or needing something that we can't afford right now. Which leads me to my next rant and that is I hate being poor. I know most of you are thinking poor you have a roof over your head, food, etc. but I have a fantastic full time job and I need to take another one so that I can pay my bills, AND have some fun money. My second job isn't going as planned so I think that it is time to retire from babysitting. I have been babysitting since I was 11 years old and my VERY first babysitting gig the "baby" has graduated college and has a big girl job. (I'm very proud of my cousin!)

I also wish I had been able to get more done with the wedding planning while I was home this summer. I feel so behind and so out of the loop because I have NO clue what's going on! My best friend is home in Savannah and in three days she has gotten her dress, her fiances tux, bridesmaids dresses, cake, etc! I am so jealous so that she has been able to get all this done. I like my wedding planner but seriously I need to know what the heck is going on. I don't even have a location for my wedding, well no contract has been signed! Grr!!!

I am spending the morning cleaning up this house, and trying to get my school supplies organized for next year. I have a junior league social event tonight but honestly I don't know if I'll be able to attend because sadly I can't really afford the drinks, and entrace fee this week. See, being poor sucks! I have to be very frugal right now because as a teacher during the summer months we don't make as much as usually!

Thanks for letting me rant (and give a few raves!)

I was recently awarded my first blog award and I am working on it, but everytime I try to write something I can't get the words out. It's not even that serious but apparently I have stage fright via the Internet? I spent the past week and a half catching up on life in OKC, and trying to get my home back in order. I am working right now on getting my closet organized the way I want it. I have to have it color coded and certain items separated, etc. (Little crazy about my closet!) My shoes look beautiful in their boxes and I will show that when everything is done. Anyone else have closet issues? Aside from you Nat and your lack of!

I have also spent the past weekend with David's family in Houston and it was a ball! I love his family and I can't wait until they are mine too (although I claim them now! :) )

I have to get back to the piles of laundry and organization so that I can get out of this house today!

Happy 4th!

I spent 9 summers at Camp Birch Trail for Girls in Minong, WI and I haven't been back since 2004 but there is still something about the 4th that takes me back to camp! Our 4th of July started off being woken up by the oldest girls at camp banging, and yelling happy 4th and then we moved to the flag pole. We had red,white,and blue waffles (strawberries, blueberries, whip cream) and then the BEST part of the day the icing fight. You were supposed to decorate your cake but somehow most of the icing ended up on us. We also would have a dance party through the lodge, on to the airstrip, it was such a happy carefree place. It's all girls and it's the place that I can honestly say taught me how to stand up for myself. That's how I got my independence how did you get yours?

Happy 4th of July!

Friday Finds

I just received my stella & dot products that I ordered from one of my sorority sisters at our annual convention and I'm in LOVE! They are adorable pieces of jewelry that are packaged in the cutest boxes. (Important I know!) The best part is I ordered these Saturday and received them yesterday. There is a sale going on from July2-July 9 allowing you an extra 20% off sale prices so browse to your hearts content. (Disclaimer I believe the 20% is taken when you checkout!)

I also just found the following website and I'm pretty sure I'm in love! I haven't ordered anything just browsed but it's like shoe heaven and that's good enough for me!
