• Typos is one of my pet peeves.  It really drives me crazy when I see them on  Instagram or Facebook.  Sometimes I feel like correcting that person, but will that make me a b$#ch?

• Is this a typo too?  I don’t understand why a word cannot be spelled out.  Are we that lazy?  I also HATE it when I see “fav” instead of “favorite”.

• I don’t know why I didn’t do this before, but I finally changed my car insurance coverage.  I used to pay for full coverage and recently changed it to only liability.  Now I am paying half of what I used to pay.  I am mad at myself because I could have saved so much money if I would have changed it before.

• Always, always coffee.  🙂

• I love math and wished my kids loved it as much as I do.  I am having trouble with them understanding subtraction problems.  We were working on a story problem and one student told me the equation was “20-36=”.  I wrote it on the board and asked for answers.  They told me 10, 24, and 0.  I had a fit!  Ugh!  Finally, a student did tell me that the equation was wrong because you couldn’t subtract 36 from 20 because there wasn’t enough.  Now I know I could have told them from the beginning that the equation was wrong, but I wanted THEM to tell me that and the reason.

• I have a Starbucks Rewards Visa Cards.  One of the perks is getting a FREE drink or food every couple of months.  My free item this time was the Sous Vide Egg Bites.  Wow!  These were so good!  There are a couple of options to choose from, but the ones I had were with bacon and gruyere.

• The other day I purchased two iced coffees from Starbucks.  I put one cup on top of my car while holding the other one with my left hand and trying to open the door with my right hand.  Well, the cup on the car fell.  What a mess.  But yes I was more upset for the coffee.  I went back inside to buy another one, but the barista was nice enough to give me a free one.

• I know at one point I wrote about getting a BQ.  I admire everyone that gets that qualifying time but then feel bad when some STILL don’t get to run Boston.  A BQ does NOT guarantee that you’ll run Boston.  This tweet made me angry.  I know he means well, but shouldn’t all runs/races make you feel like you won an Olympic gold medal?  The next tweet made me even more angry.  Ridiculously easy BQ times?  I am in that same age group and to me it isn’t easy.

• I have NO idea how I have so much money in my Dunkin’ Donuts cars.  I told my coworker that I was taking a break from Starbucks and from now on getting my coffee from DD.  Note:  I make my coffee at home, but sometimes I like to get an iced coffee from Starbucks.

• Back to coffee.  🙂  I had this and it was OK.  I added almond milk and it was almost $6.00.  Yikes!  And that is why I just get an iced coffee and that alone is still $2-$4.

• I belong to a gym in which it isn’t allowed to talk on the phone while using the machines.  I was there on Monday and there was a guy two treadmills down from me talking on his phone.  I had headphones but could still hear him.  I was annoyed and wanted to say something to him.  Luckily he didn’t stay too long.  Would you have said something to him?

• I started reading “Becoming” by Michelle Obama and so far it is a good book.  I love reading about her childhood and her experiences while in college and while working in Chicago.  I am at the part where she met Barack and has fallen in love with him.  Beautiful love story!

• I saw this kiosk while on my way to REI.  I didn’t buy anything but was tempted.  Have you bought anything from there?

• I had been curious about the movie “Roma” and decided to watch it.  Oh no.  I found it boring.  Watched about 30 minutes before I turned it off.  Actually I was running on the treadmill and there came a scene of a naked guy.  I almost fell off the treadmill because I was so shocked! 😬

• Did you see these GU seafood inspired flavors?  Yuck!  Luckily it was a joke.  Can you imagine if these were for real?

• I haven’t watched “A Star is Born” but I am obsessed with the song “Shallow”.  Wow!  I keep playing it on repeat every single day.

• Late to the party here regarding the Hamilton lottery.  Recently I downloaded the app and everyday have entered to win tickets.  Nothing so far.  Crossing my fingers that one day I can get tickets.

• Tuesday was parent/teacher conferences.  I have 21 students and was able to meet with 17 parents.  Not too bad.  It was a long day too (11:30am-7pm) with a break at 3pm for lunch.

• Lola cracks me up.  I finish eating and then she jumps on the chair for her meal.  She never eats at the table since her bowl is on the kitchen floor.  Maybe I should move it to the table?

• Aren’t Girl Scout cookies the best?  I can eat these every single day, but I don’t.  Which one is your favorite?

• My niece wore this shirt the other day.   I love it!

• This is so true.  No matter how many times I say this to my students, they are always rushing to get things done.  They think everything is a competition.  I still love them though!

• I am so happy we have early voting.  I have parent/teacher conferences on the 28th and while I can go vote in the morning (conferences start at 11:30 am), I still like to get to school early just like a regular school day.  I can’t go after work because we are done at 6:30 pm and I know I won’t make it on time to the voting place.

I voted-1.jpg• I’ve said it before and I will say it again.  Moms are simply the best!  Well, not just teacher moms but ALL moms.  I am exhausted after work and don’t want to do anything else.  Moms still have to make dinner, check homework, and do all of those other things that great moms do.

• As you know I am a big fan of coffee.  I like it with cream.  Lately I have been drinking it with almond milk and stevia.  I am beginning to like it.  In order to make sure the milk and stevia mixes well with the coffee, I bought a milk frother.  Definitely worth it.  Sometimes it is the little things that make me happy.
