Taking It Easy

Hello Friends! I'm alive, I promise. Things have seemed a little more hectic than usual in my life lately, I'm not sure exactly why because "work-wise" things are finally wrapping up. You know the deal if you work, have ever worked or know someone who works in eduction. 

We're finally at the end of the testing window and our 6th grade orientations are behind us (they were a major success). After being somewhat out of commission as a counselor for the past month and a half it's been tough playing catch up. It seems like the counseling issues are a little more intense and I just can't give all these kids exactly what they need. This feeling isn't new, but some weeks it gets me down more than others. Not that we haven't been feeling the effects of only being down to two counselors all year long, but at this point in the school year it's REALLY noticeable. Oh well, I work with a great supportive team and we all do the very best we can. 

Sorry to be a "Debby-Downer", just thought I'd explain why I've been a little MIA this past week. When I get home from work all I want to do is snuggle my little sweet pea. Honestly the last thing I want to do is blog. Trust me, I have about 17 different posts planned out - all in my head - and all fabulous. The plan is to get those posts out of my head and on here for you all as soon as things settle down. Two more weeks until the last day of school (for the kids)! YaY! Until then, this working Mamma is taking it easy!

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen that I went on the 8th grade field trip to Wet N' Wild. It was amazing! Clearly when I'm referring to this week being a little rough, I'm NOT talking about Thursday at all. Any day you get a tan at work is a good day in my book! I'd like to demonstrate Thursday's awesomeness in a series of selfies...
Speaking of selfies, I'm heading to the trade out my phone today for the new Galaxy's time for a better camera phone...buh-bye iPhone! Priorities!

  1. Your pictures look so fun! I just traded in my iphone 4 for the S4 (I got a really good deal) and I LOVE it. So many cool features and I haven't even gotten started.

  2. Ahhhh 2 weeks! I need more time! I have been testing students left and right with no time to write up my reports! Either way, we finish the 1st week of june, so as much as I'm struggling, I see the light!!!!! I'm definitely looking forward to summer!!

  4. Dippin' Dots - yum! Those are delish!

    I'm thinking about upgrading to a Galaxy 5, you'll have to let me know how you like it. :)
