• This made me laugh!  Can you tell I LOVE cats?  🙂

• My drivers licence expires in November.  I received a letter from the Secretary of State that due to my good driving record, I can renew my license and get a new one by mail, phone, or online.  Made me smile.

• On Monday I start my reading and writing lessons with my students.  The first book we will read is about a family of mice that moves in a new neighborhood and are afraid of the cat.  The cat, of course, wants to eat them and is planning his dinner that evening with another cat friend.  Cute story.  However, why publish a book FOR KIDS with no page numbers?  I spent a good amount of time adding page numbers to the pages.

• Got a new credit card!  Check out the credit line.  I hope I never have to have a need for it and use it.

• Recently there was a festival close to my house.  It was a hot day but my mom and I checked it out.  We had some tacos and funnel cake.  I also saw the cutest bag.  I almost bought it but it was $50.  I know, I know.  If I can spend hundreds of dollars on Tieks shoes and Brooks running shoes, then I can spend $50 on a bag.

• I received my new CTA (Ventra card).  Check out the expiration date.  It must be a mistake, right?

• My 2nd day with the kids went well.  I have 21 students with a few that are very well behaved and also a few that will make this year a challenging one.

• Give me all of the Ticonderoga pencils.  They’re my favorite and that is what I only use in my classroom.  I tried to add that specific brand to this year’s supply list but that didn’t happen.

• I did a Labor Day activity with my students and they had to write what they want to be when they grow up.  One of them said that he wants to be a police officer so he can eat donuts.  🙂

• I love potato chips!  Add some hot sauce (Louisiana or Cholula) and that is my snack.  However, these new chips from Lay’s don’t look tasty.  Have you tried them?

• I don’t drink Gatorade like I used to but this one cracked me up.

• This one too.  Gotta love Facebook for learning about these things.  🙂

• I took my car to National Tire and Battery for tire rotation/alignment and an oil change.  The mechanic told me that they couldn’t do the rotation/alignment because my car needs new tires.  I replaced them about 5-6 years ago.  The decision I need to make now is if I want to keep my car (get new tires) or sell it (don’t get new tires).  I love my car.  I bought it in 2006.  While a new one would be nice, the thought of making a car payment doesn’t sound appealing.

• I have a love/hate relationship with Strava.  Honestly, I don’t see what the big deal is with it.  I guess I feel this way because I have a Garmin and see my stats on the app or online.  That gives me all of the information I need.  I remember signing up for Strava because many people were signing up too.  😉  Am I missing something here?

• Shrimp cocktail is simply the best!  Recently I was in San Antonio and went to El Bucanero with my sister and mom.  It may look small but it was filling.  We talked about how we are going to make it at home and I am looking forward to it!  By the way, I LOVE, LOVE, shrimp.

• If I had $100, I would buy a pencil sharpener for my classroom.  Every classroom needs a good sharpener.  My coworker and I have been checking one out on Amazon.  The cheapest we saw it was around $60 and now it is over $140.  We regret not buying it when it was $60.

• How can cats sleep so much?  Is this the laziest cat or what?

• A friend of mine let me borrow his Apple Airpods.  At first I was skeptical about it.  I thought for sure they would fall out while running.  He assured me they would not and he was right!  I bought my own pair and am excited about it.

• While in San Antonio my sister and I talked about shows we’ve watched or are watching on Netflix.  She brought up “Frasier”.  I remember watching it and also remember the ending.  I started watching it from the beginning and it is just as funny as I can remember.  🙂 🙂 I like that each episode is about 22 minutes so I can go through a few of them in a day.

• Isn’t this cute?  Cat bottle holder.jpg

• So true.  I definitely need the one on the right.

• How do you like your steak?  I could go for #3 and maybe the next one..on the right.  Please don’t unfriend me.  🙂

• I went to set up my classroom and it is almost done.  I can say it is about 95% done.  Feels good to be almost done.  Some other little things will be done when I go back on the 20th.  I also need to work on my library and a substitute teacher folder.

• Have you tried this cream cheese?  It is so good.
