Popcorn's Big Day

Sheldon took Popcorn to Pet smart today. They cut his hair, gave him a bath, cleaned out his ears, and gave him a bandanna. They also blow dried his hair. haha. It was a good day. Here are some pictures.

Special Thanks

I want to give a special thanks to my cousin Carla. She recommend a fabulous anti-itch cream. So far, it is doing wonders. The only problem is that it has a strong smell. Oh well, I can handle the smell as long as I am not itching.

School Days, School Days

Yesterday was my first day in the middle school. I am in 7th grade Language Arts. Man, is it a shock from kindergarten. I was in a rural elementary school. Now, I am in an inner city middle school. I was really scared and nervous yesterday. Today was a much better day. I taught today and it was interesting. The students are loud and talkative. They need to be told repeatedly to get on task and work. The teacher maintains a great classroom. She teaches the students, but they have great camaraderie. It was great to watch her yesterday. Today, I was able to joke with and still teach the students. In middle school, if someone just blurts out oh well my foot hurts, you are able to say well I do not care. Get back to work. In kindergarten, you have to nurse the boo-boo. The teacher will stand behind any decisions that I make. That is very important in student teaching. It tells the student that you have just as much authority as the teacher. Today, she kicked a boy out of class for back-talking me.
Tomorrow, Sheldon is coming to the school. they have a home basketball game and he is coming to watch. It will be great for him to meet some of my students. Also, my teacher is in charge of teh step team. They are stepping at the basketball game. That should be fun to watch.

I have been itching all over! I went to the Dr. today and they said I have Puppp. It is a pregnancy rash. He said that it goes away within the same trimester that it occurred. So I guess in 2 months, I will be rid of it. I think that I might have an allergic reaction to the lotion that I have been using. I have stopped using it, so maybe that will help.
Sheldon had to work today. His boss said that they was all this work to do. Everyone came in and they were there for 2 hours. Sheldon only had enough stuff to do for 15 minutes. I think it was stupid for his boss to call everyone in on a Sunday to work.
Tomorrow I start at the middle school. It will be a real shock after being in Kindergarten.

Kindergarten is over!

Yesterday was my last day in Kindergarten. It was an eventful day. There was a bomb threat at the middle school next door, so they evacuated to our school. It messed up the lunch schedule, so all the kids had to eat in the classroom. That afternoon, we had a party for my last day. The teacher had cupcakes and drinks. She had a card that all the students had signed. Then, she gave me a basket with a lot of teacher stuff in it. Good News: Popcorn has been pooping outside. YAY!!! He has not been in the house since Sheldon spanked him for it!!!

My two boys

Tomorrow is my last day at Southwest Elementary. Monday, I go to Mercer Middle. I have had it so easy in Kindergarten. I am sure 6th grade will be a test. My last observation from my University Supervisor was today. The highest score you can get on the rubric is a 3. Well, she gave me all 3's. It kinda made me mad. All 3's mean that you have mastered every element and you are a great teacher. Well I may do some things well, but I am still learning. it was like she does not even care since she only observed me for 7 weeks. My teacher gave me a couple 2's, many 2.5's, and a few 3's. I felt more comfortable with those scores. It really gave me an idea of what to work on. I had to grade myself also. I found that I graded myself more harshly than either of them. Oh well, I guess I am doing better than I thought.
On Christmas Eve, Sheldon and I collected shells at the beach. I recently made a wreath out of them. I need to collect more shells for the inside and the sides, but other than that it turned out pretty well.

Here are some pictures of my two boys. they are so cute when they are playing. Sheldon gets down in the floor with Popcorn and they wrestle. haha. Then, Popcorn is so tired that he has to take a nap.

Also, many of you know that I am expecting. Thanks to someone who opened their mouth. :) Anyways, here is a picture of the test.

Oh, Sheldon's request for Compassionate/compelling request for exception to stop loss was denied. It is just a matter of time before he is gone. Please keep our little, growing family in your prayers.

New Edition #2

So, many of you know about our new edition. Have you ever seen how football stadiums and different places have customers pay money to name the place? Well, Sheldon and I though we would offer a proposition to our favorite aunt. We will lat her name the new edition for a small fee of $10,000. Just be thinking about it. :) Ruth Jewel cannot be the name, though. haha. Just kidding. We will name our new edition, but we will take suggestions. So far we have:
1. Ruth Jewel
2. Jay Robert (J.R.)

and that is it. If you have an idea, let us know!!! Love you!!!

I am actually feeling better today. I am not as exhausted as I have been and I am not nauseous for once. YAY! Pray that things keep going smoothly!

New Car

Today, Sheldon and I bought a 2007 Saturn Vue. Click on this link and you can see it.

It is white with tan leather. It has a sun roof and heated seats. Yay! We decided that since he is leaving, I do not need 3 cars sitting around. Especially one that I would not drive that we would be making a payment for and we got 0% financing. So, that was a big plus! This extra room helps out all of our new editions. :) I will post pictures later. Popcorn is good. He slept all through the night. So, things are looking up.

Here are some new pictures of Popcorn.

Also, Sheldon and I went to the mall and Blockbuster today. Here is what he wanted to wear.It is tan plaid pants and a long john shirt with a green t-shirt over it. Needless to say, he did not wear it. haha

Valentine's Day!

Yesterday was Valentine's Day. It was a fun day. We invited the parents to a Sweetheart Lunch. It was fun and all the students except 2 had a parent come. Those 2 ate lunch by me and the teacher. Then the parents came back to the classroom. The students read the book they had been practicing to their parent. Then, they sang 3 songs. It was a great time! When the parents left, the students opened up their Valentine's. They were so funny. They would read each one and then have to yell across the room to thank the person. The little weird boy looked at his first Valentine and said "Ooh, it's from me." I turned it over and said no it's from so and so. It is to you. ha ha.
Here is a picture of all the goodies that I collected. My teacher gave me a heart shaped donut. I have never seen one before. It is pretty cool!

Then, I came home. I got a migraine. It was not fun. I made spaghetti for supper. Sheldon came home with a dozen roses and a card for me. He did not feel good either. so, we went to bed at 7. Oh well.
On Saturday, we will be getting our new edition. Mikey will be here around 10!

New Edition

Sheldon and I are thinking of expanding our family. We have found a puppy that we really like. We are about 95% sure that Sheldon will go to Iraq in a few months. I want something to keep me company while he is gone, so we are getting a puppy. This way, Sheldon can help me train it before he leaves. It is a Shih-Poos. It is a cross of Shih-tzu and Poodle. It will get 10-12 pounds full grown. Here is a picture of the one we like.

I could not get the picture to work, but copy and paste this link into the address bar. His name is Popcorn.,%20butterscotch,%20fluff-n-stuff.htm

Also, I had the name Daisie Mae picked out for my puppy. Well, it is a girl's name and this puppy is a boy. I am looking for a good boy puppy name.

Happy Valentines

Tonight we made cookies. Here is a before and after.

Spa Day

Sheldon and I went to the Vanilla Day Spa today to get our massages. It was really fun. Then we went to World Market to look around. We found some really neat stuff. One really fun thing is cool Japanese hats. :) Then, we went to Pet Smart and got a pet. It is a beta fish named Sophie.

Being sick is no fun...

I have a sinus infection and it sucks. I am coughing up flem and constantly blowing my nose. It is raw from the constant blowing. I went to the doctor last night. I got 3 medicines. I slept most of the day. Sheldon had to work, so tat sucked too. He came home for lunch to check on me. Then he got home at 6. I was feeling a little better. We went to eat at Cracker Barrel with the gift card from PTA. I ate some mashed potatoes and corn. Sheldon ate my fish. Then,I looked around the store. They have such cute stuff. I got this cross for the house.
Also, a couple days ago I bought Sheldon this riding shirt and pants. Now he will quit wearing good clothes to ride in. He will have jeans that are not stained with mud and ripped. :)

Homemade Pizza

I was in Target after work getting a few things. I decided to make homemade pizza for dinner. I have seen my dad make it numerous times. I figured it could not be that hard. I was wrong! I came home and put on my new apron. It was my grandmothers. It has a pocket and a dishcloth on it. :) I made the dough and fried the sausage. Then, I had to spread the dough out onto 2 pizza pans. Well, I could not get it to work. The dough kept ripping and it was making me so angry. I put all the dough on one pizza pan. Well in the oven,it expanded. I thought it was going to bake over the side of the pan. I guess it turned out okay, but I will not make it again!

Today was a PTA meeting day. After school most of the Kindergarten teachers went out to eat dinner. We went to Ruby Tuesdays. It was really nice. Then, we went to the meeting. It was okay. It lasted 1 1/2 hours. At the end, they had door prizes. My number was called and I won a $25 gift card to Cracker Barrel. YAY!!!
Tomorrow my teacher will not be at school. She took off to go with her son on a field trip. She left the sub a note that said I would be teaching and to help me with whatever I needed. haha. So, I will be completely in charge tomorrow. It will be a true test as to my ability as a teacher. Let's hope it goes well!!

Funny Funny

The weird student in my class that eats pencil erasers got his head stuck in his jacket today. He had a pullover type jacket. He could not get his head through and was freaking out. It was pretty funny. Also the students had to write sentences with their spelling words. Their words are can, he, and she. They have to sound out the words they want to write themselves. One student brought his paper for me to check. He choose to write the sentence with the word can. His sentence was, "Can my mom go to the hood?" It was supposed to say, "Can my mom go to the house?" He had sounded out house and spelled it hood. It was really funny. Kids are funny.
Tonight I made lasagna. It was really good. We had it with salad. Sheldon may have to work on Saturday. I do not think that it fair. They work 5 days a week and I think they should get the weekend days off.

Tuesday, February 6, 2007


Today was such a long day. The students were so hyper and could not focus on what we were doing. I sent 9 out of 18 home on red. That is the lowest. 5 on yellow, 3 on green, and 0 on blue. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. Sheldon and I are celebrating Valentines Day this weekend since it is during the week. We are going to eat at the Macaroni Grill on Saturday night. Then on Sunday, we are going to go get a couples massage!!! We are going to Vanilla Day Spa. It will be so fun. I am so excited! I will let you know how it is!!!

Full Day Teaching

Today was my first full day as the teacher. It was GREAT!!! I absolutely loved it. I am so glad that I took advantage of the student teaching opportunity. I am learning so much. It is amazing how fast the day flies by when you are teaching. I got to school at 8:30 and looked up and it was 10:30. Today we learned about the penny, the letter Dd, and transportation. Most of the students were well behaved. I had one student that was testing me to see how much she could get away with. She did not get away with much. She went from green, to yellow, to red, to the board, and then to the bookcase. Usually, red is the lowest the student goes. Sheldon got off today at 1:00. He has to go back to work at midnight to unload some aircraft. That stinks! I hope I do not get scared!!! :) We will have to see what tomorrow brings at school!!!

Super Bowl

Tonight Sheldon and I are going to a Super Bowl Party at Chris and Becky's. Go Colts! Go Peyton Manning from TN!!!!! It should be really fun. We are also going to pick up the set it and forget it that they bought us for the wedding. It was on back order and it just got in. :) I think i might cook a roast on it tomorrow. I will post pictures of it! We also went to Blockbuster to exchange 4 movies that we got through the mail for 4 in the store. We are watching Fly Boys right now. It is turning colder here in GA. Maybe we will see some snow this week!!!

Super Fun Day

I got up and cleaned house today. Sheldon did the dishes for me. Then, we got ready and went to the mall. Sheldon got a pair of tan shoes for $10. They are the Wallabee knockoffs. They were 70% off. That is a deal!!! Then, I got a birthday present for someone. :) We ate lunch at the food court. Then, we went to Build-a-Bear. Sheldon made me one a while back. I got an army outfit for it for $12. It is cute. It goes with all my American Flag decor. I also went to spend my Victoria's Secret gift card from Christmas. I bought 3 pairs of panties. I still have $25 left. I will have to go back another day. We went and looked for a hotel for my mom and aunt. They are coming in April! Wa-Hoo! We also went to see "Because I Said So". It was GREAT!!! I loved it. It reminded me of how my mom, sister, and I are. They have a great relationship, just like us.

Today my university supervisor came to observe me for the 1st time. It went really well. She did not have any negative things to say and she was impressed by me. She said I was doing great. I am so glad that the students were attentive and listened well while she was there. The boys in my class stopped up the boys bathroom in our classroom. Someone flushed a toy in the potty and the janitor cannot fix it. They have to call in a work order. I have been having to take the boys to the school bathroom. Well, they have started sliding under the stalls and then standing on the toilet to peep over at their neighbor. I just cannot believe some of the things that boys come up with.
I start teaching full time for the next 2 weeks. It should be very interesting. This weekend, I am going to work on my lessons for the week of the 12th. I am going to go to the mall with Sheldon, sleep late, and clean house. Tonight, we went to Panera bread for dinner. While I was waiting for Sheldon to come, I went into a Home Goods. I bought decorative dishtowels for Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, and Easter. So, I have decorations up until May! Haha Now I just need door decorations. :)
