Bummer, bummer, bummer....sigh.... I had just written alot and bumped some key(s) on the keyboard and LOST what I wrote. *sigh*

All is not lost since I still have my fingers, my mind, my memory and this computar and keyboard to type on. Sooo I will start a new blog, with possible different info than the other aformentioned "bombed" blog....

How is everyone? I'm ok.... The weather hear has been hot. I saw the temp. for yesterday at one point and it was 111 degrees! Crazy huh!

Today was crazy at work. I was running around everywhere trying to find a place that they would need a sub. Because originally I was suppose to sub for this lady, Sue K___... but put another sub there cause they wanted me somewhere else... someone else ended up where I was suppose to be, huh? weird! I'd go the the office and ask where to go, go from point A too point B.... point B wouldn't need me... than do it again.... and again... and again....This is a big school. I think it like 4 stories... actually. So about 7 times I went from point A to point B and back.... I wasn't wearing very good shoes to do tons of walking in. My feet hurt... it wasn't terribly cool in parts of the school. Felt kinda wilty in the later part of the day....I sure got my exercise in today...I'm glad I wore a skirt today instead of long pants of which I was thinkin' of wearing.

Tomorrow I'll be wearing a pair of flip flops that I like. I like my other shoes, the ones I wore today, but they aren't very good for "hiking the hallways" at the High School. They, the flippies, are brown Old Navy, comfy flip flops that I have broken in. I've worn them enough to make them start to curl a little around my feet. They make my feet "happy." I wouldn't mind slippin' my feet into the coolness of the cozy brown slightly spongy plastic after i finish my blog, but no! I haveta wear my "sexy" sandels that hurt me today.... (you see I'm at the local library. I'm not just gonna walk through it barefooted... and I have more I'm gonna do here.)

School get's out June 2nd... But I think my last day most likely is Thurs. June 1st... (wow June is almost here! CRAWZY!!!) I wouldn't mind going to one of the school's last day events... but that would be kinda weird for a "real" teacher not to show up on the last day.

The last day in Florida, for those of you who weren't in Fla. or don't know that I just spent time down in Florida meetin' up with old friends and attending 2 of my friends wedding ceremony. The 2 friends, one a boy and one a girl married each other. It was mutual! Which is always a good thing. It was a pretty good time. I saw people in Florida that I hadn't seen for like 2 years!

Anyways as I was saying, the last night I was in Fla. Lisa and I (LIsa Lou is my coisin from my dad's side, the only coisin from my dad's side that I went to Bible School with) went to the movie, "Poseidon." I would recommend that movie. I really enjoyed it. There's some sketchy stuff in it. but it's not "scarring" like some stuff out there.

Oh man, during one part there was a guy in great danger (the cutie from "Sweet Home Alabama" same actor) and physically I was feeling the NERVOUSNESS... I was tense with unwanted anticipation... just waiting for the danger to happen, it was kinda a yucky feeling. Just not wanting it to happen and waiting for it to happen... Because I really didn't want this guy to get yuckified! I won't tell you what happened... but that movie sure did draw me in!

You wouldn't want to bring kids that were too young or very sensitive people to the movie. I'd suggest checking Focus on the Families movie review site before goin'... it's called "Plugged In." Just go to FOTF, web site and they have "Plugged In" listed on the side bar, click on it...etc...I'll let you figure out the rest.

So things are still in the process for me to go to Thailand. I have alot to do to make it happen. Logistics. I have to get all the info and document/copies of documents to the travel agency to get my ticket. Find out more info about Thailand... I'll probably be able to buy alot of my ART and Craft supplies there in Thailand.... I think our $1.00 is to like 39 of their currency. So I can live pretty well for less than I thought.

Also there's a ART teacher at the Jr. High, a christian... who's hooked me up some lesson plans and we're probably gettin together again for me to get examples of other projects. It's great how she's taken an interest in helping me! Yeah! for the body of Christ. I feel supported by her.:)

Keep me in your prayers about Thailand please. Yesterday something happened... or at least I was worried about something in connection with this whole thing and I was flippin' out about it. Talked to my dad about it.... I was worried that this trip wouldn't even happen. And my dad was like "Just Believe." It's amazing how things you think could mess something up, rock your boat.... but I ended up talking with someone later and now I'm okay! This someone had questions about the trip and were like, what's goin' on with everything... their questions made me question......

I need to relax. Even in other parts of life if someone has questions about something or even believes differently about stuff, I shouldn't let it so easily rock my boat. I need to relax... stay on the course that I am on and forget what others think or even the lies they believe!

I need more back bone. Or should I say realize that I am on "solid ground." Because I am on the ROCK! Let Jesus be my back bone and the word of God...

Signing off!

that random cat....

We had a random cat show up at our house last night. It was peering into the house through the patio door. Meowing....

I went outside and it was rubbing against me, my legs and really liked it when I petted it. I dont' know if it was hungry, lonely or itchy... it seemed like it may have been itchy on the head... it wasn't very relaxed... it was antsy or something... like it couldn't stay still.... I liked him... wonder if he'll come back...

I was wondering if it had gotten into any poison ivy... a little afraid of that. Didn't want to get poison ivy. But the cat's skin didn't seem bumpy:)

I don't know if the cat's a boy or girl. But it was nice to get loved on by a cat:) We don't have any cats or for that matter any furry creatures around the house:)
(cept for Adam;)

early Memories......from a long time ago......

I'm a little bit inspirered to post... I want to post a post:) Something random. I'm cold.... it was really misty outside, like really warm balmy air with a fine mist comin' down. Kinda weird. Than I come into the library and it's COLD because of AC....kinda like too cold.... I'll be outside again in a while.

Hmmmm..... I'm thinkin'..... just hold a sec.... what to write about?

One of my first memories growing up was when we lived at my grandparents house the P___'s in Maine. I wanted my mom to wake me up to watch Ann of Green Gable's on tv. We went to bed, than I guess we were gonna get up later to watch it.

I also remember going to this store to get popscicles....

And I remember "taking a nap" and pickin at the wall with a safety pin and picking my nose. I was really young.

I remember eating brown sugar right out of the bowl.... seems like I may've eaten alot. This was still at my grandparents house.

We lived there for awhile after movin' up from Florida. I was born in Fla., Zephyerhills, Fla. in a trailer park. Literally in the trailer! That's a whole nother story:)

So those are some early memories... got any weird/normal early age 2-4?

Now you know more about me:)

In the Darkness it's easier to see the Light...

It was a dark and stormy life..... sigh....

My life hasn't just been bad. But right now I am on low for my happy energy and energy:) I'm glad it's the weekend. The last few days ahve been kinda crazy. I kinda wish life was just innocent and good like when I was little. I didn't know about all the bad stuff in the world. You know.

If I keep talking like that I'll keep plummeting! Ahhh!

I should start having thankfuls!:) I'm thankful for people that follow closely after God. That live that way. That strive after purity in their hearts, minds and actions. Thank you all, the girl's and guys out there that I know. Don't give up even if you struggle. I appeciate it when you actually live it. I'm also thankful that God isn't finished with people. That he doesn't just stop when we mess up. That He pursues our hearts and the hearts of the ones we love! That He IS BIG ENOUGH to change people. Don't give up.

I've spent some time with Jr. High Kids this week. Man! They need heart transplants. I bet Chad and Andrea understand. They need a Jesus make-over!

I'm thankful for sleep, and chocolate, and easy reading christian romance novels:). I'm thankful for the love from my parents. I'm thankful for good things to look forward to like Fritha's and Jeff's wedding. I'm thankful that it will be a modest wedding. That they will be pure coming into the wedding. THat it will be a beautiful experience just to be there. The love, the joy the fun and fellowship! God will be there delighting in it and we'll be partyin' too! I'm planning on goin' ya'll!

I'm thankful for godly refugee children in Thailand that I get to look forward to. By the way I'm going to Thailand for like 2 months this summer to teach ART and Crafts! I heard that these kids are good! They are well behaved and children of character.... and I'd believe diligant. Good workers. It will be a really nice change from the public school's I've been in.

God has me in the world for a reason. But it's nice when you can be removed from the world and be in more peaceful surroundings. Where things are good.

Enjoy your good surroundings this weekend. We truly are blessed living under God because our lives compared to the worlds are a WHOLE lot more peaceful and good! They really are ya'll. Just go spend some time out in the world and you'll be thankful for what you have. I am.
