Spring Break Randomness

I am interrupting my scheduled blog for the day to vent. I don't typically share a lot of "me" on my blog as I try to keep this more "professional" than "personal" but I am breaking that today to vent/update as I am just overwhelmed. In no particular order...

I have become obsessed with organizing my blog to perfection.  So I have gone back, read old posts, corrected spelling, added in the items now avail for sale at TpT, added links for peeps I found, and added my signature.

I have also been adding buttons to the blog roll. There are two now... one for PK-2 and one for 3-6. I may need a third one but it kinda looks funny rolling along as it does. I may need Erika to come back and fix my blog again with additional headers. I am a trouble maker!

If you follow me and are not on the list... let me know!

I didn't get the job. I had a second interview. They seemed to have loved me but alas... I got a computer generated email that said while I was a great candidate they hired someone else. Guess God has other plans for me....

I am so frustrated with my practicum hours I could cry!!! My classes are eight-weeks long. Like the overachieving student I am (yes... that's right I have a 4.0!), I went out to set up my practicum 5 weeks ago. A friend says I can come to her school but she is 2 hours away! So I tried to find something closer. One is "still waiting on one more signature for approval" and the other has "entered it into our system and your request is currently pending." Week 6 starts today... I need to complete 25 hours minimum and complete all the stuff to go along with it... in under 2 weeks and I have no clue where to do this at!

The saga with my middle son continues. Each doctor visit brings us more questions and no answers. It is frustrating. I smile for him, tell him it will all be fine and he will be better soon. But I am lying, I have no clue if or when he will get better. I don't even know what is wrong or why it is. I just want him to be his normal crazy self. Why is that too much to ask?


Onto the brighter side....

I was feeling left out of the K-2 linky party. Where was the one for 3-5? Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies solved the problem! I am looking forward to meeting so many new friends. I have learned so much from every teacher I have met but sometimes you just need ideas that don't require adapting!

Traditions, Laughter, and Happily Ever After is having a  Lucky 300 Giveaway! The winner should be announced soon. Good luck!

Don't forget to join in the Teachers Helping Teachers Linky! Together, we can make a difference!

Have you seen this? Scholastic has Lorax Lesson Plans! There is a writing contest, create your own storybook online, and the opportunity to win a $10,000 scholarship!


Lastly - Don't forget to enter my 100 Follower Giveaway

Remember.... I have all kinds of fun things planned for all of you during the Madness of March. Here is some of what you may have missed!

Colorful TEACHER Initial Bezel Teacher Keychain with Apple Charm-Teacher Appreciation Gift Present By Once Upon a Sugar Tree No.9

(Until March 30th!)

 And that is not including the ongoing things I already mentioned! There are more freebies, more giveaways, and more excitement to be had!

I have had several people ask if they can join in on the March Madness fun! Of course you can! Just send me an email (you can find it on the Contact Me Page (right under my header)).

I definitely had that upsetting day (this was last week for me) where you get the dreadful email of not getting the teaching job. God as a great classroom waiting for us. :) Also, I just entered your 100 follower giveaway. That pencil sharpener looks amazing!

Cheers to School
