Linking up with Leeann for some Monday Morning Gossip about what I did this weekend and some things about this week.
So Friday was a hard day at work...just students misbehaving. I am finding that I may not be cut out for the younger kids and that 9th grade/ 14-15 year olds may be my youngest limit. I am grateful for my job, but I think my skills/ talents/ passion lies in the high school. I vented some frustration out on social media and was humbled by the response I got from some of my old students
Anyways after a long day at work, Matt texts and says he scored tickets to his school's basketball CIF semi-finals game versus an all boys Catholic school. So off we went to cheer them on. It was pure craziness!!
|they dressed up as super heroes!!|
|This isn't even half of the kids..450 tickets sold for our side alone!! oh and you can see Matt in the bottom Right hand corner in the blue shirt in front of the kids in white with the sombreros!!|
They lost :( 44-42, but man those boys have some talent. In fact one of the seniors has a scholarship to Cal to play basketball.
|Came home to a glass of wine :)|
|And the little girl sitting in my spot cuz she's queen of the house...apparently. :)|
Lazy day!! Matt had a baseball game, so I slept in late, which was nice... then cleaned the apartment and caught up on blogs. I also had some FaceTime with my dad, whom I haven't talked to in a while, we planned a family dinner for Sunday night. After Matt came home, we went house-hunting to some open houses in the neighborhood....which was both disappointing and motivating. Basically our plans to buy a house is on hold for another year
stupid student loans messing with our plans We need to knock off some debt in order to qualify for a better loan and get a good house...oh well. We are also planning on switching apartments in our complex. I love our area and our complex, but my current apartment is too freakin' small!!! I have cabin fever!!
Anyways after much talk
and naps, my Valentine's date for Matt was to take him to Cinepolis, a movie theater that serves wine, was foiled!! We wanted to see Silver Lining Playbook, but the tickets were sold out :( so next weekend will be a special date night :)
Instead of a movie, we spent our Saturday night grocery shopping and catching up on Grey's Anatomy. YES! I still watch Grey's...I can't quit it!!
Another lazy day with some laundry
more naps and grad school work. We went over to my parent's for a family dinner and had a greta time catching up. I tried shopping my sister, Stephanie's (who blogs over at Smart Style with Stephanie) closet, but I have a training this week for work and plan on being comfy with jeans and a tee shirt, so I didn't borrow anything.
We came home just in time to watch Revenge and OMG!! I love this show!! I want to be Emily Thorne!! Please someone tell me you watch and if you don't get on it, I promise you it's soo worth it!! I would recap, but I don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't watched.
