Chronicles of a 4th Grade Intern

Okay... T-minus 9 days left til my teaching adventure starts. Someone hand me a paper bag. There is so much to do and never enough time. Classroom set up, lesson planning, scheduling, and I still need to make time for my kiddies and spouse... OI!!! Everyone said it would be hard and a lot of work, boy were they totally right. My plan book is not even close to being filled up, there should seriously be a class that teaches how in the heck to organize these things. I am beyond overjoyed and feel blessed to have this chance, I just pray that I don't mess up. My students are counting on me to help them learn and understand. I don't want to let them down or myself. As you can probably tell there is a ton running through this big head of mine. I guess for now TO BE CONTINUED.... sTaY tUnEd

For a Smile... Minions from Despicable Me

Crazy happenings

There were a few things running through my mind today. The first was the unbelievable cruel act of the Dark Knight Theater killings. I am still in shock as to how crazy things are getting in our lifetime. Why does there have to be so much hate? One insane person destroyed the lives of so many innocent people. Seeing the pictures of the victims I came across the picture of the youngest victim and I couldn't not stop tearing up. I thought about my own little girl and can't even imagine having to deal with something so horrible. Again I ask why are there people out there just wanting to cause harm for pleasure? Its stupid! I just don't get it. God will be the families of those dealing with the losses and close calls. The reason I bring this up, my family and I went to the movie theater earlier today to watch a movie. The first thing you see on the doors "Large bags, backpacks, etc. will be subject to search" and as soon as we go all the way in we spot a police officer. I felt safe but, now there is fear when entering a movie. I hate that the feeling is even present. I know in my heart I have to put my life and the lives of my family in God's hands and trust that all will be okay. Its still scary, what do you think?

Until We Meet Again

Perfect Message during this tough time.

Just Thinking

Its almost 10pm and I'm just sitting here watching sleepless in Seattle and all I can think about is what I need to pay and do. When did I stop enjoying the simple moments? Does this happen to us all? Who pushed the fast forward button on my life? I look at my three kids and can't believe how fast they are growing up. Don't get me wrong I am beyond grateful with everything and all the blessings I have in my life but, I think to myself have I really enjoyed those blessings? I don't think I have ever really done anything for myself. All I've done is try to please everyone. No, I did one thing for myself I moved away from home and started my own life where I now live. I miss my home town and mom every day. I sometimes question my decision about moving. Is that wrong? Its been 7 years and I still feel out of place. I miss my Latin peeps. The long term plan is to move with our family either back to Florida or Texas just depends on where we are financially in 4 years. See what I mean I'm already over thinking about that too... Ugh!!!! I seriously just need to relax... Any suggestions??? I'm open to suggestions....

Its my time!

Well, I weighed myself and I almost fainted. (238 to be exact) I realize more than ever that its finally time to take charge of my life. I've let go of myself to much. I stopped caring about what I look like since I had my first child. My husband always tells me "You look great" and then I look in the mirror and just feel like crying. If you are reading this, my apologies. I am just starting a new chapter of my life and need to let everything go and bring in the new me.
Today is a new day and tomorrow is only the beginning.
