One of Those Days

This week has been freezing and rainy so far. The freezing part doesn't bother me, because I've enjoyed breaking out some sweaters and hoodies. But the rainy part has been a drag.

This morning started out a little dreary because of the weather. And then at 9:35 - 10:55 my patience was really tested. During that time, I had to work with a fourth grader who also must have been having a very bad day. He was being so defiant and not listening at all. It got to the point where I was about to rip my own hair out from sheer frustration.

I texted Luke to warn him that #1 - I was about to kill a student (I kid, I kid...)so #2 - He should be extra nice to me tonight.

Luke promptly texted me back letting me know that #1 - He had to work in duck poop all day so #2 - I should be extra nice to HIM tonight. You just never know what the day might bring when you're a parks and recreation worker!

Luke then suggested that since we both had such crappy days, we should just take it easy and go out for Taco Bell for dinner. I don't think Taco Bell has ever sounded better. I love that I got out of cooking dinner tonight ;-) I need a break after today, and apparently, so does Luke!

So now the gross day is going to turn into a fun night :-) The only thing that would make the night better is if this pain would stop burning in my stomach! I was awoken in the middle of the night from the pain, and it has come back in waves since Saturday. So maybe it wasn't the chicken! Whatever it is, I hope it goes away soon, because it's getting seriously annoying! Okay, enough complaining!

I really think that the bad part of the week is over after today!! I've got some fun things going on during the remainder of the week:

~The 5th grade is going to be at camp tomorrow-Friday. The librarian is a chaperone, so in the afternoons when I'm normally working with 5th grade, I get to play librarian for the rest of the week!

~I'm planning on buying a sweater or two from Old Navy. They're on sale this week, and I practically drool everytime I see the commercial.
I think this one is my favorite! Only $20! I love how the sleeves bubble out at the bottom

~I have Bible study tomorrow night!

~Working at the church library Thursday night again. Hmm, maybe I should become a librarian...I'll be spending hours in two different libraries this week :-)

~Hoping to go see Julie and Julia FINALLY with my mom sometime soon. It finally came to the local $4 theater.

~I'm having a fall cookie decorating day on Saturday. I'm devoting the whole day to it. I hope Luke is interested in decorating a few! I'm going to buy some supplies for the day later tonight while I'm out with Luke.~I can't wait to make these cute glitter pumpkins from Martha Stewart's website sometime soon!
And I think that's about it for now! Here's to hoping it stops raining sometime this week!


  1. The sweater is really cute! I hope you have a better time for the rest of the week - at least with the rain it makes it perfect weather for candles and reading on the couch! With tea, of course. *grin*

  2. I hope you feel better soon and that your pain goes away! But the rest of your weeks sounds really fun so I hope you enjoy them at least.
    Those pumpkins are too cute!

  3. I have days like that. Hope the rest of the week goes much better! ;) I hope you start feeling better soon - if not, get in to see a doctor.

    I love that sweater. Too Cute!

  4. Thanks for the tip on Old Navy sweaters. I'll have to check that out. Blessings, SusanD

  5. I bought an Old Navy sweater this weekend. I couldn't resist the commercial either!
