So exciting!

I just found more of my friends who have blogs that I didn't know about! This is more exciting to me than you can imagine (I know, I'm sad!) It totally made my night :0) Shyanne, Susan and Stephanie ~can't wait to be a faithful reader to your posts! Love ya'll!

Happy Birthday Sarah!

Today is my beautiful, sweet, friend Sarah's birthday! So naturally, I had to post in her honor :0)


Sarah,

I hope you and Stacie had a wonderful birthday weekend! You are so precious and wonderful friend! I can't wait to hang out with you soon! Love you sweet girl!

Friday Night Lights

This past Friday night, I tagged along with Amy and Jorge to go watch Allen play Plano Senior High at Plano. It was probably the best game I've seen in a long time..we had SO much fun! It was true Friday night football weather :0) The game was so good! One of the most exciting things that we got to see though, was the Navy parachute guys. The jet flew over the stadium and dropped the jumpers out and they flew in and landed on the football field! I posted videos that I took of them. WATCH THE SECOND ONE FIRST! In the second video, at the very end, you'll notice that the parachute looks a little different. At first we thought it was a guy with two parachutes, but it's actually two parachuters hooked together! I wasn't able to get it on the video, but it was really cool because they suddenly broke off and both flew in together. Have fun and watch them! WARNING! DO NOT have your volume turned up all the way when you watch the videos. Have it turned on some, but not full blast! I apologize in advance for all of Amy and mine's screaming. Hey, we were excited!

OUCH!

Last night~for the first time in I can't remember how long ago~I got soap in my eye while I was in the shower washing my hair. It hurt like crap and I almost cried. Geez...

Joe T. Garcia's

So when I went to my workshop this past Tuesday, Eliza wanted to go eat at this Mexican food restaurant in Ft. Worth. I'd never heard of it, but we all said sure, so we went. It was amazing! The food was good, but that wasn't the most amazing part. It was their gardens! Evidently this is what Joe T. Garcia's is famous for.. they are so packed on the weekend, the line is out the door and in the street. Nobody ever wants to sit inside, everyone asks to sit out on the patio. After going there, I can see why. 'Liza said that she had been to a wedding reception there, and all of us girls said that it would be perfect for a wedding reception or a rehearsal dinner ;0) I most certainly agree! Enjoy the beautiful pictures~ I know that I did!

Happy Birthday Baby Brother!

Today is my brother Chase's 17 birthday!

Chase,
I hope that you had a wonderful day! I am so proud of you and love you so much! I can remember exactly the day you were born, and when you came the hospital. I was so excited that I FINALLY had a baby brother after having 3 sisters. You were the cutest thing and so sweet. You were "my baby". I always picked you up and rocked you and took care of you. I didn't want anybody else to. I remember always sleeping in the bed in your nursery, just so I could watch over and take care of you. If any baby could have been kissed to death, it would have been you! You will always be "my baby" no matter how old you get or even if you're the one who can pick ME up now. I love you so much brother of mine~ Happy Birthday!

I know he meant well..

but I don't think my Jimiah knew the impact of his words when he ran up to me, gave me a big hug, then looked up at me with that sweet face and said, "Miss Snodgrass are you going to have a baby?!" I'm sure that my loud gasp and look of shock on my face might have given it away that that was NOT something you say to your old teacher. I said, "NO!! Jimiah do I LOOK like I'm going to have a baby?" Then he just looked at me with a big smile, and said, "no!" and gave me another hug.

After school, he came up again and gave me another hug and then said, "Miss Snodgrass you look really pretty!"

It ALMOST made up for what he said earlier ;0) Geez I love that kid.....

Angela the Elephant!

This was so cute I had to share!

Yesterday morning during class, we were doing our daily morning question. The question of the day was, "If you could be any animal, what animal would you be and why?". The children's answers were pretty cute..one said flamingo, because they would love to be pink, one said a tiger so he could roar at people, one said a dog, because dogs were fun.

However, my favorite one came from my Angela. Angela is a precious little girl I have, who is so beautiful, sweet, and VERY quiet. I think of her as a little pixie..she is so tiny! Anyways, when it was her turn, I said, "Angela what animal would you be?" and she said, " an ELEPHANT!" I was very surprised when she said that, so I said, "Why would you like to be an elephant?" and she replied, "because they stomp!" Hahahahaha..how presh is that! It's just so ironic..you have this quiet, little bitty thing who inside wants to be the exact opposite..huge and loud!

It made my day! :0)

Nightmare

Last night, I dreamed about a teacher's worst nightmare. I FORGOT ABOUT PICTURE DAY!! My hair was nasty, for some reason I was at school wearing jeans and a t-shirt, and I had no makeup on! You bet that's a nightmare.

Picture day is October 10th. Somebody remind me!!!

You may ABSOLUTELY NOT

post anything about the new season premiere of Grey's Anatomy! Yes, I'm talking to YOU..you obsessed Grey's Anatomy fan. I know that you won't sleep at all tonight, because you are so excited about tomorrow and counting down the hours until tomorrow night. However, for both of our sakes, if you don't want to ruin mine and Grey's history, then you won't mention any details that will give anything away. You may say, "I loved it..it was so good..blah blah". However, NO DETAILS! I know this will be hard for you, but just give me about 2 more weeks or so, then you may blog about it to your little heart's desire! :0) Got it? GOOD! I knew you'd see it my way :0) Love you too!

(Cass, don't worry..I'm going to post, post, and more post when I have more time tomorrow!)

It's Already a Good Day!

Why? Because:

  • right now it's 6:30 am and I'm dressed (looking beautiful if I might say ;0), ready to go..EARLY(that never happens)!
  • today is PAYDAY!!!!! Whoo hooo...I could just post that and it would be enough. AND today is the first check that I'll get that has my new salary increase ;0)
  • the new Rascal Flatts cd, "Take Me There" comes out today!
  • I'm going to get to go to Chick-fil-A for breakfast! AND it's going to be free because I have a teacher's coupon!

Now, somebody just TRY and beat my morning ;0)

A good night..

So it's actually turned out to be a good night! I got out of my grad school class earlier then planned..but shhhh..if anyone asks, we were there until 9:30!

Class was really good tonight..I felt like I wasn't there as long as I actually was and I felt like I learned and could apply all the material. Plus, we had some yummy food and desserts! I mean come on, how can your evening go wrong when you have chocolate cake?!

Another good thing is that tomorrow I get to play hookie from school! Well, actually I'm going to a workshop..but still..it's a little change in the everyday routine! Yay for change!

SO true!

I completely stole this from my friend Megan's blog, but I honestly couldn't have said it better myself. This is why one of my relationships didn't work..his was really "won't".

I can't believe when some people say they 'can't do long distance relationships.' The 'can't' really is 'won't' because if you truly care for someone, you'll do absolutely anything to make it work. The funny thing is, my relationship hardly seems like work. We might be 700 miles apart, but we still have our daily routine. I think the distance makes our relationship stronger than most, actually, because we can't get into a rut... we have to work and have conversation since we don't see each other weekly, and those conversations make us learn more about each other, and crave to learn more about each other. When people say, "you just know," as far as who your soulmate ends up being, it is so unbelievably clear to me. I completely get it.

Thanks Meg!

I feel like I'm back in college...

Tonight was the first time in over 2 years that I have actually had homework. So what do I do? Act like a college student and wait until the evening before to get my homework done :0) This afternoon I went up to school, made my bazillion copies and got things ready for the week. I am going to be out all day on Tuesday at a workshop, so I have to get everything ready for my sub. Normally this wouldn't create a problem;however, since I also have my grad school class tomorrow night from 4:30-9:30, problem created.

So after I got finished at school, I came home and..worked on my homework right? WRONG! I decided to postpone it a little while longer, and called my best friend Kyrbie. We talked for about an hour and a half, then I decided I better get to work. So then I popped out:

  • one 6 page paper on ethnic and racial diversity
  • one 4 page substitute lesson plans for Tuesday
  • read 25 very long, small print, pages for my reading assignment for grad class

and I finished it all by 11:00! I was so proud of myself :0) I really do feel like I'm in college again..

except where are all my friends and the cute guys?! :0)

night night

Grey's Season 4

Yes, yes..it does start this Thursday...which is also the same day as..SMALLVILLE!!!! Now, normally this would pose a huge problem for me;however, I have one thing that will save the day, and that my friends is called Direct TV! :0) I of course will not be watching the season premiere of Grey's, but I will record it. Hopefully I get get all of seasons 2 and 3 finished before episode 2 of season 4 comes on. We'll see!!

FYI

So I was watching "10 Years Younger" on TLC and I have something to say to the little guy hosting the show.

FYI when you tell a woman that she's "meaty" but it's ok, she has the right and responsibility to punch your lights out.

Guys, NEVER tell a girl that she is "meaty". I think I would rather be called fat..but don't you dare call me that either. I WILL punch your lights out.

Grey's Anatomy Season 1 - CHECK!!

So I'm definitely a little hooked; however, when I was watching the last episode of season 1, I was like is this really the season finale? But then it did get interesting ;0) Bring it on Season 2! I was shocked though, because I looked up how many discs there were and how much I had to watch to be caught up..season 1 has 2 discs, then I looked at season 2 and there are 6 discs, and season 3 has 7! Holy moly..I'm going to be watching a lot of Grey's! When does season 4 come on? I've read September, but then a couple of ya'll have said not until 2008? Somebody tell me..I've got to get an organized Grey's schedule going..sheesh!

Why?

Ok why does every episode of Grey's have to have someone die? I know in reality that it is a hospital, people do die..but seriously-every episode?! It has now become my new habit in every episode to pick out who was going to die..disturbing, I know.

Michael Buble'

I don't know why I'm so in love with Michael Buble'. Maybe because he's cute, and he sounds like Frank Sinatra? His voice is just so smooth and sexy. I'm pretty sure if he (or any man) came up to me and sang like that I would melt in a puddle at his feet...

Kyrbie

Remember?! I still love this song..even though I didn't get to sing it at your wedding :0) I might put it in mine!

Guys, just listen to the words. Nothing else needs to be said..thank you Jesus for being~it all.

Oh yeah..


You know you've got it made when you get homemade chocolate chip cookies from Mimi (one of my student's grandmother)! Oh yeah~life is good :0)

Star Spangled Banner..Whitney style!

You'll have to trust me when I say that I've searched all the versions of the "Star Spangled Banner" and listened to them all. So when I say that out of all of them, her version is the best, I'm not lying! In my honest opinion, she has the most beautiful, powerful, voice of any woman artist that I have ever heard in my whole life.

It is old school, and she has the fro going on..but she's also got the soul ;0) Seriously gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it and makes me want to salute! Thanks Whitney!

As If.

Is this me? I feel exactly like this..except most of my guys don't come out of the box that cute!Am I missing my UPS guy out there somewhere? *sigh*


Priceless.


Elody telling Heidi, "You have no idea what's right or wrong any more and it's so sad..see ya!
Best part of the whole show!

If You're Reading This.

This song gets me EVERY time! I mean I'm crying big 'ole tears..I think it's the words and emotion I can hear in his voice. Tim McGraw is amazing..and I'm insanely jealous of Faith!

I am a horrible teacher.

Am I a horrible teacher if I get a secret thrill when we have practice fire drills, and I love the fact that when the alarm sounds, they look scared out of their minds and I want to laugh at them?

Am I a horrible teacher if I think it's funny when the alarm rings and they all literally jump and almost fall out of their chairs?

Am I a horrible teacher if I get excited when I yell for them to line up and they do it the instant I ask, faster then they have ever lined up in their lives?

Am I a horrible teacher if I do actually laugh out loud (after the drill is over) when one of my little boys is so scared that he runs to line up with his actual sandwich in his hand (we were having snack), then has this blank look on his face because he doesn't know where in line to get?

Yes, I would say that I am a horrible teacher :0)

The Last Thing on My Mind.

I forgot how much I love this song. I love the blend of their voices..it's so perfect together..and he's cute too so that makes it even better!

Why you should NEVER run with a fork!

This is a prime example of why you should always listen to your mother when she tells you not to run with sharp objects! Good lord..this poor kid!

Amazing!

For any mother, or mother to be..you have to watch this! I couldn't believe my eyes!
(Make sure you have the volume up and you push play at the bottom.)

Season 1: Disc 1: FINISHED

Yes, I did watch a whoppin 5 episodes this afternoon and finished the whole thing. It's not that I never watched the show, or never saw it; I deliberately never watched it on t.v because I hadn't seen it from the beginning. Now, I am very glad I never did! Thank you NETFLIX! Now I'm on to disc 2!

I forgot how much like ER it is. You have to put yourself back into the "world of medicine". Now, I'm not squeamish or anything and I can deal with blood and needles, but it took me a while to get readjusted to all the medicine and surgery stuff. I know it's all about Dr's and hospitals, etc. but I was surprised how most everything happens at the hospital. It's like they have no personal lives..or anything happens outside the hospital. I guess it's too early for me to determine though. I've still got a couple of seasons to go!

I honestly can't say that I'm obessed like you ladies are, but I am definitely interested!

(in Dr. McDreamy of course ;0)

Season 1: Disc 1


Grey's Anatomy..got it in the mail from fabulous NETFLIX..fixing to see what all of ya'll have been harrassing me about..watch out..

will post later tonight with an update and my opinion :0)

Told you so...


I am a YouTube, video posting queen..but hey~at least I gave you fair warning!

Take Me There.



I'd love to..

love the song, love them, love it all

Who's the Boss?




This has become my new secret addiction and I admit it..I tivo every episode that I can find. When my friend Jacque called me the other day and asked what I was doing, I told her "watching Who's the Boss". I'm pretty sure she's still laughing at me. I remember watching it when I was younger and being so in love with Tony Micelli (I still am). I have found though that I LOVE LOVE Mona..she is hilarious and makes me laugh so much. I also love Alyssa Milano in this series..she's just so fun. I just love "Who's the Boss?" period!

And yes, I know and can sing the theme song by heart..so sue me

What I'm Waiting For.

One of my friends posted this on his Facebook wall and I saw it and totally stole it from him~

WHAT I THINK IT MEANS TO BE A MAN INSPIRED FROM PROVERBS 22:1-2 AND OTHER VERSES FROM THE BOOK

A MAN SHOULD FIRST AND FOREMOST PUT THE LORD FIRST IN HIS LIFE. A MAN SHOULD HAVE A CERTAIN WAY THAT HE CARRIES HIMSELF; A WAY THAT NOT ONLY INVOKES STRENGTH AND CONFIDENCE, BUT OF NOBILITY AND PURPOSE. HE MUST BE DRIVEN AND MOTIVATED IN A WAY THAT INSPIRES OTHERS.

SHOULD HE INDEED BE MARRIED, HE MUST UPHOLD ALL OBLIGATIONS TO HIS WIFE IN A MANNER THAT GLORIFIES THE LORD GOD. HE SHOULD LOVE HER ONLY SECOND TO HIS CREATOR, BUT WITH AN ADMIRATION THAT IS EVERLASTING. HIS CHILDREN SHALL BE SHOWN LOVE IN AN UNPRECEDENTED WAY; BUT YET CAREFUL THAT THEY DO NOT BECOME SELFISH OR UNJUST.

IN ALL WAYS A MAN SHOULD STAND FOR WHAT HE KNOWS IS RIGHTFUL AND BE ABLE TO DISCERN WHAT IS JUST. A MAN SHOULD NEVER CUT DOWN ANOTHER, BUT INSTEAD BE LIKE A ROOT THAT HOLDS THE OTHER UP. HE MUST BRING HONOR AND DIGNITY TO HIS NAME AND FAMILY.

HE MUST NEVER SACRIFICE WHO HE IS FOR THE ACCEPTANCE OF OTHERS NOR JUDGE THEM FOR THEIR IGNORANCES IN THOSE MATTERS. HE BELIEVES IN HIMSELF AND STANDS BY THE PROMISE OF GOD'S WORD. HE WILL LEAD HIS FAMILY IN THE WAYS THAT THE LORD HAS SET. HE MUST NEVER LOSE FAITH, BUT KNOW THAT THE LORD IS IN CONTROL AND THE KEEPER OF ALL THINGS.

This is why I'm waiting..because I know the "Proverbs 22 Man" is out there waiting for me.

Sunday, September 16, 2007

*sigh*

I want to write lots of blogs and there's so much stuff running through my head right now; however, I just don't want to sit here and right it all down. Maybe I'll be in the mood later. So I'm going to watch t.v and grade some math papers. Peace out homies..

Thursday, September 13, 2007

Geezzzz!!

For cryin out loud..somebody PLEASE comment! Pick a post..ANY post!! ;0)

"First Time"

Love the lead singer, love them, love the song. It makes me want to be driving down the highway, windows down, hair blowing in my face, screaming this song. Then I look over, HE's sitting there, grinning back at me, screaming the song too. I want to make him red.

"Apologize"

Ok I am now obsessed with this song and video thanks to Cass! I just love the words, beat, everything! Plus I'm sure that along with myself, we all can bring to mind one person when we hear this song...I know I can.

I dedicate this song tonight specifically to Lauren, Audrina and all the other girls on The Hills. They need to wake up and sing it! ;0)

P.S Now that Cass has helped me embed videos in here and I FINALLY got it to work..watch out..I'm going to be the video queen!

Smallville!

Watch the video and then read below!

Ok so while most people have Grey's Anatomy, I have Smallville. I will admit (don't hate me)that I have never watched an epidsode of Grey's. I know..now close your mouth while I explain. See when it first started, I was like yeah ok..another ER, so I didn't watch it. Then when EVERYBODY started watching it, I was like ok maybe I should check it out. However, I'm the type of person that has to see the first episode, and know everything that happened..in order. So I couldn't start watching the show until I started with the first season..which I still haven't done.


Anyways, so Smallville is my Grey's Anatomy. I am absolutely, positively, OBSESSED with it. Saw the very first episode, and it's been history ever since. I'm mostly just obsessed with Tom Welling aka "Clark Kent". Yes, I will admit that sometimes I wish that I was Lana. Can you blame me?! If you asked me what my perfect physical idea of a man for me in the whole wide world was, it would be him. If I could pick any man ,any type, any one, it would be him. I think he is beautiful. SMOKIN' HOT!!! I know that you are thinking I'm probably insane right now, but honestly I love that man and I love that show so much, that I could CARE LESS what you think about me right now! :0) I'm pretty sure that I have never missed an episode and they are coming up on the seventh season now. Evidently I'm not the only one who likes it! Now I know realistically he is all a figment of my imagination and Tom Welling is a real human being, a married man, etc, etc. I get that..but that doesn't mean that I can wish for my own Superman right? If he looked like Clark..man that would just be even better!

I found this video on YouTube and no joke probably spent an hour looking at all the Smallville videos and this one is definitely one of my favorites. My absolute favorite scene is where Clark walks into the room, Lana sees him (after she was told he died) they just stand there looking at each other and then she runs into his arms. Just the look on his face while he's holding her. God, I melt everytime! I want to run into my Superman's arms :0( Some day..some day..

Ok, now you probably don't want to be my friend anymore after seeing how obsessed I am..but know what? I don't care~because the new season of Smallville is coming on September 27th!

Cute Cute!

So these are some of the cute things that my kids have said the past couple of days!





  • yesterday we were the first ones out to recess, so I went and got on the swings with my kids. (I'm pretty sure that school swings are the best EVER!) Of course, when I got on, they all wanted on too..they think it's just the coolest thing that a teacher can actually swing! One of my little girls on the swing beside me looks at me and said, "I didn't think that teachers were ALLOWED to swing!" That made me laugh :0)

  • one of my boys somehow thought that I had a baby-when I was talking to him, I explained that I wasn't married, I didn't have any children, and that I lived alone. He got this very sad, sympathetic look on his face and said, "Awww...well you can come spend the night at my house! If I get 10 stickers, I get to have a sleep over, and you can come to my house!" Precious..he was as sad that I lived alone as I was :0)

  • One of my moms informed me that her daughter asked her, "Mom-can I move in with Ms. Snodgrass?" Her mom said that she wanted me to know that I must be special because the only other people that she's wanted to move in with were her grandparents...and now me!

Soup!

So since I read Cassandra's awesome blog about fall, I've had "soup" of the brain! Does anyone have a broccoli cheese or their favorite potato soup recipe that they would like to share?

Cass, I looked at that pumpkin bread recipe and am definitely going to try it! Ok, now all this talking about food has made me hungry and ready for fall to get here!

I was estatic this morning though because it was cool enough that I had to put on a light jacket! Whoo hoo! Bring it on fall! :0)

Monday, September 10, 2007

Grad School!

Well, it's official! I got accepted into grad school at Texas A&M Commerce! I'm really excited about it (I think :0)

We're at our first class..it's supposed to go from 4:30-9:00. Hopefully it's not going to last that long and we'll get out before 9..I guess we'll see! Pray for us..

Depending on how this class goes, I might be blogging tons..check back later :0)

Sunday, September 9, 2007

Cassandra!

I just finished reading the blogs that Kelly wrote on her myspace, and Chad responded, then you commented on..etc, etc. Amazing! I just wanted to inform you that you have just been unanimously elected as the "mutual friend". And you know what I'm talking about! So feel free to get started asap, and keep me contacted..should I send you pictures? ;0)

LOVE YOU!

#2 reason that Chelsey needs a husband

TO MOW MY LAWN!!!!!!!! I was very excited today because I got my lawnmower and was ready to mow away. I got the mower going and started in the front yard around 5:30 this afternoon. I got the area by my garage and the front half of my yard done before the mower died. I tried everything. I let it cool down, I primed it several times, I shook it, I turned it over and checked that there wasn't anything clogging it. I checked the gas..I saw some gas in there, but didn't know how much there was, so I called Jacque and Jason, and they said it was probably the gas.

GGGgrrrrr...so I head off to Walmart to go get a gas can and some gas. I return home, fill up the lawnmower, and thankfully it started right back up. I finished the front yard, and then took a short break, drank some water, and then headed back out to finish the backyard.

Dun, dun, dun....THE BACKYARD...now, I have discovered my worst nightmare. I absolutely HATE my backyard now. It took me almost an hour to mow that freakin thing, and it was the hardest. I just had to keep going because I knew if I stopped, I wouldn't finish it. So, I finished it..in the dark, knees trembling, legs like jello, arms shaking, I finished it! I have no idea what it looks like, but it's mowed by golly. I came in, collapsed on the floor with my bottle of water and didn't move for a very long time. I did get up then and go take a long shower to wash all the grass and dirt off me.

Now, you're probably thinking, "Chelsey, have you never mowed a lawn before?" To that I will say, I actually have..many times. However, that was a VERY long time ago, and my dad got a riding lawnmower for his birthday one year, so the last time I mowed, I rode. That was probably about 6 years ago..until today. I now know why hardly anyone has a push mower..I now believe that they should be outlawed. Everyone should just save up their money and buy a riding lawnmower. Or at least if you are a single woman who lives alone..stores should give you one for free. The end.

I, Chelsey Snodgrass, promise to never, ever, ever, ever, let my back yard get that bad. I also promise to never mow my backyard again and will hire someone else to do it for me!
(The above picture depicts exactly what I felt like!)

Go Leopards! Beat the Wildcats!

I am a horrible sister. Right now more than anything, I wish that I had driven home to watch my brother's football game. Watch his sweet ball skills, watch him play his heart out, hear his name over and over on the loudspeaker and see him dominate the field tonight. Instead, I'm sitting home all alone..this is so depressing :0(

Oh well, I'll be cheering in my heart tonight for you Chase! Whoop up on the Wildcats! :0) Love you brother of mine!


These are pictures from last year; Chase, me and my dad. Chase was on varsity as a sophomore..this year he's about 5'10 and weighs about 215 lbs of muscle. Yes, I am bragging and biased!




And this is precisely why I love these men in my life-and football so much!

Open House.

So tonight at school we had our open house. Normally this is not very thrilling for me, seeing how you're already exhausted from being at school all day, then you have to stay EXTRA late, look nice, and paste a smile on your face telling the parents how wonderful their child is doing. With some this is true, with others it is not. However, I am estatic to report that tonight I did not have to past any smiles on my face tonight :0) Want to know why? Because of my last years kids!


Several of them, with their parents, dropped by my room, just to say hi and give me a big hug! This made me soooo happy! No kidding, just seeing these kids makes my day like you have no idea!
I was of course the most excited to see my Braden! :0) He came in and gave me one of his famous hugs and I got to see his older brother Dillon and his dad Bobby. We talked for a little while and then the boys went around investigating my room. Last week when the parents were able to come up and see what teacher their child got, I ran into Shelle, Braden's mom. I told her who Braden had and we were talking about his class. Braden, Dillon, and Bobby were all out fishing, so they didn't get to come to meet the teacher; hence, why Shelle came up to check everything out. While we were talking, the boys called her to find out what teacher they got. Bobby told me tonight that after Braden found out that Shelle had been talking to me, he wanted to call me back and talk to me! He said, "Well even though I wasn't there, I could have hugged her through the phone!" Haha..have I said yet how much I love this kid?

Bobby went on to thank me for what all I had invested in Braden. He said that he can tell how much he has grown up and changed and that they appreciated all I had done. Believe me, I about lost it right then and there. Later when they were leaving, Braden came up and gave me another big hug, and while he was hugging me, he asked Braden if he had gotten his "Miss Snodgrass fix"! I was thinking well I need to get my Braden fix! They went on down the kindergarten hall to visit Mrs. Wood, Dillion's old teacher.

A few minutes later, I went back to cutting things out at my desk when suddenly I looked up and saw Braden come back in my room! He sneeked back down while his dad and Dillion were in Mrs. Wood's room and came up and gave me another hug. I told him that I missed him and that I thought he should come back to kindergarten. He looked at me with a puzzled look on his face and said, "but I'm already in first grade!" I said, "oh that's ok! I'm sure if you ask Mrs. Pine, she'll let you come back to my class! I really need you to come back so you can teach my class how to behave correctly!" He just looked at me and gave me his Braden laugh=precious. We just sat and talked about my class and his class and who I knew in his class that was getting in trouble, etc, etc. It was awesome. Man I miss that kid! Later, Dillion came back into my room, so it was just the three of us all hanging out! When Bobby came back down there, Braden was like, "Dad, Miss Snodgrass wants me to come back to kindergarten!" with this big grin on his face. Bobby said, "Yeah I bet if you just batted your eyelashes at Mrs. Pine she'd say yes!" Then we all just talked about football.

Man, it was a good night :0)

One thing that I realized tonight was that if you give your students a reason to come back to you..they will :0)

Revelation.

I, Chelsey Sue Snodgrass, am addicted to blogging. I think about blogs all the time..I check my friend's blogs an alarming number of times. I'm continually thinking of what I could post about..I secretly get angry at my friends when they don't blog every day and then leave nasty messages on their posts (not really). I'm always thinking of other friends that I could drag into the blog world..AND I'm actually proud of this addiction! :0)

12:00-12:30 p.m=Ms. Snodgrass' happy time

Have I mentioned that the only reason I teach kindergarten is because of naptime? Haha..just kidding..or am I? Oh well, you other teachers know you're jealous of me :0)

Priceless.

Getting your whole class of students to laugh out loud, at the same thing, at the same time, completely unplanned, at something VERY funny=PRICELESS!!

Signs that you own too many books..

1. You had to label the boxes a "2 person lift only".

2. The only way to actually move these boxes once they are placed somewhere, is to get down on the ground and push them with your legs..remember "2 person lift only" and sadly there is only one you

3. When you finally move the boxes where you wanted them,into the room that is right beside the one which they were previously in (maybe about 10 feet apart) you discover that you are MAJORLY out of breath.

Some of you might state that I am just out of shape considering my lack of breath; however, I know that is not the truth.

The truth is: I own too many books!

Rejection Letter

One of my friends posted this on myspace and I thought it was hilarious! Now, know that I personally would never actually date anyone who would possess any of these qualitites! I just thought it was funny...REALLY funny!


Dear [____rejectee's name here_____],

I regret to inform you that you have been eliminated from further contention as Mr. Right. As you are probably aware, the competition was exceedingly tough and dozens of well-qualified candidates such as yourself also failed to make the final cut. I will, however, keep your name on file should an opening become available. So that you may find better success in your future romantic endeavors, please allow me to offer the following reason(s) you were disqualified from the competition:

[Check all those that apply]
___ Your breasts are bigger than mine.
___ Your last name is objectionable. I can't imagine taking it, hyphenating it, or subjecting my children to it.
___ The fact that our finest dining experience to date has been at McDonald's reveals a thriftiness that I find unappealing.
___ Your inadvertent admission that you "buy condoms by the truckload" indicates that you may be interested in me for something other than my personality.
___ You failed the 20 Question Rule, i.e., I asked you 20 questions about yourself before you asked me one.
___ Your legs are skinnier than mine. If you can FIT into my pants, then you can't GET into my pants.
___ Your "Putting on a few, aren't you babe?" comment, given the 9-months pregnant size of your beer gut, was inappropriate.
___ You failed the credit check.
___ I find your inability to fix my car extraordinarily unappealing.
___ The fact that your apartment has been condemned reveals an inherent slovenliness that I fear is unbreakable.
___ The phrase "My Mother" has popped up far too often in conversation.
___ You still live with your parents.
___ You mention your ex-girlfriend's name more than you mention mine.
___ Three words: Size does matter.

Sincerely,[Your name here]

So who's going to tell my landlord

that I broke the cabinet?! :0/


I was reaching up to stand on the counter, and grabbed the top of the panneling or whatever the crap it is and totally yanked it right off! If you didn't know it was there, you couldn't tell at all. I wonder if the landlord will remember that it was there? I tried to fix it, but no can do. They nailed it in from the inside, so if I nail it from the outside you could see it..plus I'd have to get nails the exact same color as the cabinet..do they make those?

This is when a man would come in REAL handy! I could just blame it on him..or get him to fix it..if only *sigh*
