• I think my students like me.  They know I have a cat and love all cat stuff.  They were excited to draw cat pictures for me.

• Have you tried these protein shakes from Orgain?  They’re actually pretty good and tasty!  I’ve tried vanilla, chocolate, and strawberries and cream.  So far my favorites are chocolate and strawberries and cream.

• I’ve said it before and will say it again but Amazon truly has the best customer service.  A month ago I ordered some steel cut oats.  The school clerk delivered the box to my classroom and I left it there until I decided to take it home (which was a couple of weeks).  Recently I ran out of the oatmeal I had at home and decided to open the box from Amazon.  Imagine my surprise when I saw that there wasn’t any oatmeal in the box but instead there were 4 bags of gluten free muffin mix.  I immediately got in touch with someone from Amazon and I explained the situation.  They apologized, issued me a refund, and told me to keep/donate/dispose the muffin mix.  

• Feel Good Friday.  Another great idea to do with the kids!

• Anyone watched “The Manifest”?  The first episode got me hooked!  So good.  Kind of reminds me of “Lost”.  Excited for the new episode on Monday!

• Gotta love grandmas and their grandchildren.  When I was a kid, I rarely saw my grandparents.  They lived in Mexico and died when I was 18 years old.  However, I love seeing my mom and her grandkids.  The best!

When mom says no

• I always look forward to the weekend but rarely get to do everything on my list.  I  make sure to always do laundry, run, and catch up on sleep.  Definitely sleep!

This weekend

• Halloween is next month and I saw some really cute costumes at Target.  My cat doesn’t like anything on her and for sure will remove them as soon as I put them on.  Aren’t they cute?

• Got this idea from another teacher and did it in my classroom.  I had so much fun and the kids loved it.  One asked why I did it.  I responded that I wanted to do something nice for them.  I asked if they liked it and they all responded “Yes!”

• I want a taco too!

• My running clothes stink.  I bought this detergent because an ad kept popping up on Facebook.  Plus, I was curious to see if this will help remove that awful smell from my clothes.  However, only 1 tablespoon?  Not sure how I feel about that.  Have you used this detergent?

• I purchased some new socks and so far am loving them.  I don’t like socks that are thick and have too much cushion.  These are soft, thin, but yet still provide enough cushion.  

• Cannot believe the Chicago Marathon is less than a month away.  I definitely do not miss training for this marathon or any marathon.  🙂  I am surprised that they are no longer allowing hydration backpacks.

• I definitely do not need more bottles of glue.  Saw this bottle at Target and couldn’t resist getting it.  It is the little things that make me smile.  Purple, why not?

• Went to get a mammogram and saw this sign at the doctor’s office.  Haha, couldn’t resist taking a picture of it.  🙂

• 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.

Skull 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.  🙂
