Ahh the life of a teacher!

I love love love Special Education. SO i always knew i liked it but now i know i love it. It is the most rewarding thing i have ever done. (mind you i am not a mother yet) but it is just so much fun.

A funny story to share. Today one of the little boys in my class was sad. I asked him what was wrong. He said he had to go to the dentist. I said "you don't like the dentist" he replied saying "my grandma gets mad when i go to the dentist" i asked why she gets mad and he said "cuz i bite the dentist" I laughed so hard my stomach hurt. I could just picture this snaggle tooth little 2nd grader sitting in the dentist chair. Ha ha.

My sister will be here tomorrow and i can't wait. I love my family!

We have successfully been on a spending FREEZE for the last 2 weeks. Travis got laid off and no one is hiring... i wonder how long buying nothing will last... i am so proud of myself honestly!

A funny question for people who pay electric bills. How do you conserve energy... i was not pleased with my energy bill and would like to cut back. How do you do it? i mean other than turn the lights off when your not in the room and don't use the heat?

unplug things! its not going to take up TOO much but unplug unused lamps, your straightener & dryer at the end of the day. Use natural light up until the very last minute. AND hand wash your dishes!

Do your laundry on "off" times, like at night. Take shorter showers. Only use appliances when you really need to. Make sure you turn your oven off when your done. We forget to all the time.

I was a SPED teacher too. Sometimes I had to turn my head so they didn't see me laughing. They are so funny and cute (most of the time.)
