You know it's going to be a good day when you get to work and realize you are wearing the same pants as you had on yesterday at work. All I can say is oooops.

I did a whole bunch of laundry late last night, and I was trying to get ahead of the game and iron clothes and put them on hangers so when I get ready for work in the morning, there's no fumbling with things in the dryer or having to iron things. I can just grab it and go. Well, I washed the pants I wore to work yesterday, ironed them, hung them up, and put them back on this morning. I'm just laughing at myself. I doubt anyone even notices, because to be honest, I don't think teachers pay much attention to what other teachers wear most of the time, unless there are flashy dressers, and in those casese EVERYONE notices. But I am not a flashy dresser, most of my clothes are shades of blacks, grays, beiges, and reds, easy to match and apparently easy to wear twice in a row. All my dress clothes look the same, what can I say??

I am counting the days until school is out. We have 15 after today. The count keeps changing because I'm not even sure when our last day is. We might have to make up one snow day, but I really hope not because parents won't send their kids in the last day just to be there, attendance will be under 75%, and the day won't count anyway, so why bother?? I think I should be principal.

I legally changed my name now, on everything. So those of you who were wondering if I took Kenny's name, YES I did, and my maiden name is still in there too, not hyphenated, but it's all there. I have four names now. Cute, eh?? I couldn't drop my maiden name, just couldn't do it. The kids are trying to call me by my married name but it sounds wierd to all of us so I told them to call me either name, whatever they like. I'm cool with being called whatever, even after this year. I still love my original name:)

My mom is coming out tonight....I love it when she stays with us! That means maybe I'll get a homemade breakfast in the morning.

I am looking forward to a fun Memorial Day weekend. Saturday will be a very busy day and I'll be slaving away with Kenny all day. But Sunday and Monday I hope to be in the backyard working or maybe going the lake house. Our new patio will be poured in 2-3 weeks, so I still have some work in the backyard, but I enjoy doing it, so either way, this weekend will be a good one. I can't wait.

I think you are a great wife to change your last name for Kenny. I know he only wanted you to do it for the giggles, but it takes a great woman and he should be proud to call you his wife, LOL..I'm sorry I can't stop giggling either..I'm there with Kenny.

Anyways I cannot wait until this summer. We must get together, Are we still on for June 1st? Can't wait...I still haven't seen your house, so maybe one day me and the girls will trudge on out there..Better warn kenny though, because once he gets a taste of my kids he will never want any...LOL.

Love ya!
