90 mph with no chance of slowing down.

That's what the radar gun tells me. Life in the fast lane. (how about that for an early morning earworm*??)

I'm loving every minute of it. Except for the fact that I can't seem to find the time to leisurely sit in front of the computer and read and blog and comment. BUT I shall be working that into my schedule. I gotta have some me time, right?

We won!! 44-19
So, week 2 is now under my belt. Fingers crossed, the school year is still going swimmingly. Maybe it will stay on this track. One can only hope.

Here's my weekly recap:

  • On Monday morning: My job title: classroom Spanish teacher.
    • By the end of the week:
      • District translator
      • Informative speaking coach
      • Cheer leading co-sponsor
      • Photo journalist
      • Sports columnist
        • As soon as my first article is published I will link it!!!
      • Football tunnel hauler
      • Homecoming parade float puller
      • I'm sure I've forgotten something...
  • I am loving the fact that in my third year at my wonderful school I am now being asked to "do stuff!" I guess that means that they trust me!! I love being involved in more that just classroom education. I mean, yes, that is very important. But it's not the only aspect of education.
  • Oh yeah, add cosmetologist to the list. Yes, I do hair on the side. Need a funky side braid?? Come see me!!! Or need your "edge" fixed....yep, I'm the woman for the job!!!
  • Good news, with being busy is there is not time for mindless snacking. Several times this week lunch was half of a lunchable. =)
  • AND huge NSV: when shopping for a new Friday night football shirt I bought a LARGE!!! First time since probably late elementary, early middle school that I wore a T shirt that didn't have an X on the tag!!!
  • Oh, and I wore shorts Friday. On the sidelines. In front of several thousand people.
  • AND I got a text saying, "Hey girlfriend! I didn't even recognize you on the sidelines. Looking like Malibu Barbie!" **I love my former students!!**
  • And, the scale showed an all-time low. I even entered a new decade, but unfortunately it didn't stick around for this morning's weigh-in.
  • One negative thing for the week. Sanford has a little jealousy issue. It's really silly, IMO. When at football games I see a lot of former students. This year's recent graduates are a group I am especially close to. I had them for two years. So, it is natural for me to hug them when I see them. Sanford no likey. But you know what? I'm gonna hug my kiddos!!!

Ok, so now that I've rambled your heads off...I promise I will be a better blogger!! Even if it's only a few words per day!!!

Oh, let me show you the latest craze. You know I'm that hip and cool that I can keep all of you ladies up to date on the latest trends. AND after you watch this video I totally expect to see pics and videos of these moves from Chicago!!

Imagine a group of big, bad football players doing this. the hall...on the FIELD!!! Hilarious!! (And it is a shame that they are a generation that missed out on Weekend at Bernies!!)

AND my plan is to start back at the track this week. Oh, and did I tell you that my new BFF Zumba instructor/co worker is starting a class next week??? AND some of us teachers are going to start weight training after school??? WOOT!!

*Earworm: A song that sticks in your mind and won't leave no matter what.


  1. I'm either too old, too white girl/suburban or something, but all i want to do is laugh! :)

    Congrats on your added responsibilities at the school! sounds like you're in for a crazy fun year! :D

  2. You got it ALL going on there g-friend !! Sounds busy but fun ... I'm sure Sanford will get over his jealousy as his trophy wife continues to shrink - congrats on the L t-shirt :)

  3. Oh my gosh. That is DEFINITELY my new dance move. Expect pictures of me doing it. LOL

    Glad to see you've been doing so well, weight-wise and with school! We've missed you around here, but totally understand. :)

  4. That is a great NSV! Congrats. I couldn't believe the Bernie when I saw some kids doing it. Hilarious.
