• It is the little things that make me smile.  I can never find a parking spot in front of where I live.  I live close to a corner so I usually find parking there.  Not too far but it is annoying that I can’t park in front of where I live.  This week I parked not once, not twice, but three times in front.  Lucky me!

• I rarely win anything so I was surprised to get this email from Starbucks.  I won a stationery set.  Cannot wait to get it!

• Wednesday was a half day at school and we had a late Thanksgiving feast.  I went to the gym to eat my lunch (where our meeting was taking place).  I was very surprised to see a placemat made by one of my former students.  Sure made me smile!


• Saw this pen at work and it made my day.

• Saw this at Target and it made me laugh!  I almost bought it but I have way too many mugs.

• Part of me wants to make this in a big poster and put in my classroom.  🙂

• Smudge is HILARIOUS!!!  Here is another great meme.

• Lately I have been very tired.  More tired than usual.  I also have been sneezing a lot.  Could it be the weather?  Age?  Who knows but I am tired of being tired.  And here is another cute photo of my babies.  🙂

• What is up with the contaminated food?  It is either fruit, lettuce, kale, etc., but never pizza, bread, or coffee.  🙂

• Anyone knew this?  I didn’t until I saw this.  No need to have measuring cups because all you need this this red cup.

• How cool is this?  I remember when I was a kid going to the neighborhood grocery store just because of this game.  If I had room, I would buy it.


• It’s been 3 years since the “Gilmore Girls Revival”.  Come on!  I want to see more episodes!!  I want to know who is the father of Rory’s baby.

• I am at this point right now.  I’ve had a rough few days with my students.  I cannot wait till Thanksgiving Break next week.  I will be at work for 2 days and then home the rest of the week.  My mom will also be home with us so I am excited about it.

• I was not selected for the NYC Half Marathon.  I am kind of bummed about it.  I know things happen for a reason so I am trying to be positive about it.  Maybe I will be selected for the NYC Marathon?  🙂

• Anyone have the BURST Sonic ToothbrushI am tempted to get one for me.  It has charcoal bristles to remove stains, 33,000 sonic vibrations per minute, and a 2 minute timer.  There is also a subscription plan where you get a replacement head every 3 months for $7.  Pretty good, huh?

• Anyone excited to see the new “Frozen” movie?  I loved the first one and the second one will be interesting.  Another movie I am excited about is “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”.  As a kid I remember watching the show and remember when he took his shoes off and then did something with his sweater.

• These memes are HILARIOUS.  I am loving all of them and laugh at each one.

• We got more snow on Monday.  Honestly, I don’t mind too much the snow or cold weather.  What I really, really hate is the ice.  Next week it will be in the high 40s so I am happy to know the ice will melt.

• On Tuesday we had parent/teacher conferences.  Conferences went from 11:30am-3:30 pm and then again from 5:30-7pm.  All but 4 parents showed up.  I am actually surprised that many showed up since it was very cold that day.  Most of them went well but I had to bite my tongue with one set of parents because they refuse to acknowledge that their son needs more help than I can give him.  


• Just another photo of my little guy.  I love him so much and am excited when I get home.  I wonder if Lola, my other cat, feels like I neglect her.  I don’t.  Mateo is very dramatic and craves attention.  He likes to sit on top of the radiator to stay warm.
