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

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!
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.

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)

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.

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!
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)

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)

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 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.

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!
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!
- 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!

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)

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

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!

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]
