and it begins

Yesterday, I officially went into school to start setting up my classroom. Dexter came with me! I think I wouldn't mind working if I could bring Dexter in every day. How about my principal told my wonderful mother (who happened to have a day off and came and got him so I could kick butt in the afternoon) that it would be great if he could be there every day. Um, hello? Then make it work, lady!

Needless to say, Dexter didn't loooove being in my room all that time, but he did a good job. He "played" with my teaching partner's kids. Well as much as a 4 month old can play, which is basically laughing hysterically at the things they do. He's such a little ham head.

Going back in today and taking the Dex in as well. Have to be out of there in time to get him home for his big afternoon nap. I'm hoping I can get a lot done. Apparently, someone was making a big huge deal about the fact that there were baby bottles in the fridge and who did they belong to??? This snarky person was informed as to them being mine and then was like, "oh, well fine then" You damn well better bet it's fine. My kid isn't bothering you! You didn't even know he was there until he was GONE.

Anyway, back in today. Maybe I should go and ask permission to feed my kid from that person today. :)

Oh yeah, I have a blog....

I have been eating up every free second of my life with 3 things: Dexter, Rob, house hunting. Mainly spending as much time as I can with Dex. I'm dreading going back to work. I hate it. I'm going to spend my first month of teaching crying. What can you do? Luckily, we have family watching Dexter now (well 3 days a week the first 2 months is still not entirely figured out...hurry people!) so at least I feel better about who he's going to be with. So, I'm cheating with a meme.

My roommate(s) and I once… Put a toilet in another person's room that we borrowed from a dorm room attic...don't ask.

Never in my life have I…won the lottery. Would love to win a Powerball!

High school was…fun for the most part. I don't have complaints from that time of my life! I had good friends and a lot of fun!

When I’m nervous…I pick at my nails...gross I know, but nervous habit.

My hair…is pretty nice. I went to an red/auburn in 2007 and love it to this day!

When I was five…I had to get glasses to fix an astigmatism.

When I turn my head left… I see my husband's laptop.

I should be…pick your poison...getting ready for school? sleeping? packing?

By this time next year…I'll hopefully be in my new house and....something else....

My favorite aunt is…Amy. she gets me.

I have a hard time understanding…why many of us work so hard for everything we have in life (those of you that understand me, yeah I know we appreciate it more but...) when some of the people that have it the easiest do little to get it. They should give back!

You know I like you if…well I like most people so if you know me you can bet I like you. I'm an easy person to be friends with.

My ideal breakfast is…quick and healthy.

If you spend the night at my house…we could watch movies, play games, have some drinks, laugh a lot!

My favorite blonde is…Reese Witherspoon

My favorite brunette is…Rob!

I shouldn’t have…majored in Elementary Education....

Last night I…had ice cream. shhhh

A better name for me would be…I think my name suits me, anyone else have any suggestions?

I’ve been told I look like…my father and my mother. If you split my face in half, you can see which half resembles whom. Top part of my face, dad. Bottom part, mom.

If I could have any car, it would be…a Mercedes. I think they are classy and gorgeous!

Hopefully next post will be more personal!
