Don't say I didn't warn you

I'm feeling a bit grumpy. No, a LOT grumpy. And stressed. And tired. There, I've said it. And as well meaning as you might be, and as much as I set myself up for it with my last post, please don't remind me that I have a lot to do and very little time to do it in and do I really think I'll be able to get it all done? Because I can't be held responsible for what will come next if you do say or ask those things. To answer my own question- yes. I am crazy.

Ok, so as Mom would say, "Tell me three good things that have happened."

1.) Lufkin/Nacogdoches folks threw Jason and I an AMAZING shower this past weekend and I have never felt so loved or welcomed by a complete group of strangers.

2.) My school threw me a surprise shower at the end of our faculty meeting and my mom was even there.
And she brought my wedding dress! And it's GORGEOUS.

3.) Jesus loves me no matter how grumpy I am. Thank goodness, because I'm not sure that even I love me right now.

As for this particular afternoon, there is a walk with a friend to look forward to; cleaning out and packing to do which will make me feel productive and industrious; taped episodes of "Alias" and "Lost" to watch; and there is the knowledge that as Miss Stacey said in Anne of Green Gables, "Remember, we can always start everything fresh tomorrow."


  1. I love you, too! Grumpiness happens, but you seem to have a good handle on getting through it.

    Grumpiness is just part of the journey! This morning I looked around that classroom at ALL you have helped those children learn Leslie. YOU are the queen of the 4th grade Nile and all the love from them flows to you. Grumpy days will come and go but the memory of you as our children's teacher will stay in their (and our!) hearts forever.


Love me some comments! If you don't have a Google/Gmail ID, please make sure you leave your name and/or email. Also, I moderate my comments so don't be alarmed if it doesn't show up right away. Thanks, y'all!
