A woman stopped by unannounced at her son's house.
She knocked on the door then immediately walked in.
She was shocked to see her daughter-in-law laying on the Couch, totally naked. Soft music was playing, and the aroma of perfume filled the room."What are you doing?" she asked.
"I'm waiting for Mike to come home from work," the Daughter-in-law answered."But you're naked!" the mother-in-law exclaimed.
"This is my love dress," the daughter-in-law explained."Love dress? But you're naked!""Mike loves me to wear this dress," she explained. "It Excites him to no end. Every time he sees me in this dress, He instantly becomes romantic and ravages me for hours on end. He can't get enough of me."
The mother-in-law left.
When she got home, she undressed, showered, put on her best perfume, dimmed the lights, put on a romantic CD, laid on the couch waiting for her husband to arrive.
Finally, her husband came home. He walked in and saw her laying there so provocatively.
"What are you doing?" he asked.
"This is my love dress," she whispered, sensually."Needs ironing...
What's for dinner?"

Well, my summer vacation has begun. If I take graduate classes or a class this summer it will begin in about a week and a half. Right now I am debating, if my life would be better or worse for it right now.

Plus there are two fields I keep going back and forth in....if I get started now and take a couple over the year (depending on the field I choose) maybe take next year off and go to school full time if I can amanage to save some money this year...Me going shopping for clothes and books today didn't help. I am so OCD.

May stupid people rot in hell.
May all the mean stupid people around me go directly to hell, no return ticket...The bus should leave RIGHT FUCKING NOW.

suggestions?????? ASAP

I feel as if I am playing Peek A Boo and not in a good way.
Currently, at work we have 2 teams in the sixth grade. Team one has 5 teachers- the kids go to English, Math, Science, History and Reading/Literature OR Spanish. This year I taught 2 English classes and 3 Literature classes. (which meant I had 2 preps--planning for parts of speech/poetry vs. novels or short stories. Ok I LOVE my Literature classes. I was the only teacher on my team with 2 preps.
Team two had to add a 6th teacher to their team this year. She came to the school LATE as in a month after school started. She ended up with 4 preps. She is certified in all 4 subject areas. Most of us are only math/science or english/history. Well, of course she told the principal she would NOT stay if she had 4 preps again and WHO could blame her?
Ends up our numbers are going to be HIGH next year more than 300 kids in the sixth grade.
So our principal wants us to have 3 teams instead of two. So team 1= 4 teachers, team 2= 4 teachers , team 3= 3 teachers.
I have to figure out if I have a preference and quickly ~ The english teacher on my team is leaving. I can ask for her slot and work with people I like but I would be STUCK teaching grammar all damn day. (SCREAM) I dealt with 2 classes this year cause they were small 15 kids--compared to 28 in my Literature classes.
OR-- I ask him to move me to the 3rd team and REQUEST the history position. If I get on the 3 man team I would end up with a Grammar class, 3 History and one remedial reading class.
I know one of the teachers, she was new this year, but easy to get along with. The problem would be I am afraid of who he would add to the team ---two teachers on team 2 I LOATHE. They were ROTTEN to me my first year teaching. They put me in tears. I REFUSE to work with them.
So what do I do???????ANyway I go I am screwed. I lose my full time Literature. Do realize I spend some time with my teammates--grade level planning, parent conferences and daily contact. But the MAJORITY of my day will be spitting out subject matter.

crying out to be loved


I am feeling really sad and frusturated about something. I had a cool kid this year who has just given up on himself. I know I have posted about him in the past. Lets call him Pat. He lives with an alcoholic grandma. He told our assist principal he wanted to be kicked out of school and sent to an alternative school . Well, after so many chances he was removed. I kept up with him through some of his friends. I knew he had been staying with one of my old students (who is a complete shit). His name is Joe. Well Joe's mom works nights so all the boys hang out there. Last night as I was leaving Dillards at the mall, I saw 3 cop cars and 4 kids lined up against a wall. It ends up I have taught all 4 of them. One just finished with me Friday. I got out and talked to the kids and the cops. Two of them were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Daniels grandfather came to pick him up along with my 6th grader from this year. Joe's mom shows us screaming in the parking lot to the cops as soon as she gets out of her truck " you can fucking keep both of them. I am so tired of their shit! They just can't stay out of trouble. They get in trouble at school, Joe cusses me out on a regular basis. Fuck Fuck Fuck You can take both of them to jail. Lock them up, beat on them. Do whatever the hell you want to with them"

I want to help Pat. He is a VERY depressed kid in a no win situation. I want to get him counseling. I want him to have a fair shake in this world. Social services can't do anything. I am going to talk to some other teachers tomorrow---those who have been teaching for 20+ yrs and ask their advice.

Can I tell you I feel a bit of sadness and relief. Today is our last day with the students. I have a few really SPECIAL kids , that I am truly going to miss. I'll see them next year but it's just not the same. On a bright note 90% of the hellions have already been suspended for the rest of this year...AMEN....WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOO So Friday for the most part will be signing yearbooks and the Literature kids collection of work, they put together.

On a good note, I made reservations at my favorite rest in town right after they open...I'll have seafood fresh and healthy! (not to mention Yummy) . I worked hard this year and have stressed over so MANY personal things that I need a break. Hell, I may go for a few drinks afterwards. I need a stress reliever!!!!

Hope your Friday is quick, painless and brings along a few smiles~

OK this was one of the hardest posts for me. I have over 400 cds. I worked in a music store in college. If I could have my DREAM JOB it would have been concert promotion.
Give me your feedback!
I was tagged to list some of my favorite albums and songs of all time.
Songs in no particular order:

"Faithfully" by Journey
"Neon Moon" by Brooks and Dunn
"Cross my Heart" by George Strait
" Dream Weaver" by Gary Wright
" Save a Prayer" by Duran Duran

" I Remember You" by Skid Row
" Misunderstanding" by Genesis

"Gold Dust Woman" Fleetwood Mac
"We are Family" by Sister Sledge
"I can't tell you why" by The Eagles
"Southern Cross" by Crosby, Stills Nash and Young
" New York State of Mind" By Billy Joel
"I keep forgettin" by Michael McDonald
" Your Song" by Elton John
"Time After Time" by Cindy Lauper
"Love Removal Machine" The Cult

Albums in no particular order:

Pretty Hate Machine (also known as Halo 02) is an album by Nine Inch Nails released in 1989. Pretty Hate Machine is the band's first album released on a label.
Working nights at Right Track Studio as a handyman and toilet cleaner,[1] Trent Reznor used studio "down time" to record and develop his own music. Playing most of the keyboards, drum machines, guitars, and samplers himself, he recorded a demo.

Frontiers managed to give Journey four Top 40 hits, with "After the Fall" and "Send Her My Love" both reaching number 23, "Faithfully" at number 12, and "Separate Ways" peaking at number eight -- the same amount that 1981's Escape brandished. While they tried to use the same musical recipe as Escape, Frontiers comes up a little short, mainly because the keyboards seem to overtake both Schon's guitar playing and Steve Perry's strong singing. An overabundance of Jonathan Cain's synth work cloaks the quicker tunes and seeps into the ballads, slightly widening the strong partnership of Perry and Schon. "Faithfully" tried to match the powerful beauty of "Open Arms," and while it's a gorgeous ballad, it just comes inches away from conjuring up the same soft magic. "Separate Ways" grabs attention right off the bat with stinging synthesizer and a catchy guitar riff, and "Send Her My Love" emphasizes Perry's keen ability to pour his heart out. The rest of the songs on the album lack the warmth that Journey is famous for, especially in their mix of fervor and intimacy shown on this album's predecessor. Greatest Hits is singer-songwriter James Taylor's eighth album, and the best-selling album of his career. Released on November 1, 1976, the album featured newly recorded versions of "Carolina in My Mind" and "Something in the Way She Moves." Although the album did not rise higher than number 23 on the Billboard albums chart, it still holds the second longest tenure of any album with a total of 573 weeks (over 11 years) on that chart. Greatest Hits has sold over 11,000,000 copies certifying it as a platinum album eleven times over, and a diamond album once (for 10 million copies).

Released on August 27, 1991, Ten (named after Mookie Blaylock's jersey number) contained 11 tracks dealing with dark subjects like depression, suicide, loneliness, and murder. Many interpreted "Alive" as an inspirational anthem due to its chorus.[6] Vedder has since revealed that the song tells the semi-biographical tale of a son discovering that his father is actually his step-father, while his mother’s grief turns her to sexually embrace her son, who strongly resembles the biological father.[6] The song "Jeremy" and its accompanying video were inspired by a true story in which a high school student shot himself in front of his classmates.[12] The album was slow to sell, but by the second half of 1992 it became a breakthrough success for the band, being certified gold and reaching number 2 on the Billboard charts.[11] Ten produced the hit singles "Even Flow", "Alive", "Jeremy", and "Black". Ten stayed on the Billboard charts for more than two years, and has gone on to become one of the biggest-selling rock records ever, going twelve times platinum. Rumours is a worldwide best selling rock and roll album released by Fleetwood Mac in 1977. It was the second album recorded with this lineup, following the successful self-titled Fleetwood Mac album. In December 1976, prior to the release of the album, Reprise released the single "Go Your Own Way". As of 2007 the album has sold more than 30 million copies, and is one of the best selling albums of all time.
The Eagles are an American rock band that was formed in Los Angeles, California in the early 1970s. With five number-one singles and four number-one albums, the Eagles were among the most successful recording artists of the 1970s. At the end of the 20th century, two of their albums, Eagles: Their Greatest Hits 1971–1975 and Hotel California, ranked among the ten best-selling albums according to the Recording Industry Association of America. The best-selling studio album Hotel California is rated as the 37th album in the Rolling Stone list "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time", and the band was ranked #75 on Rolling Stone's 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

Everlasting love

Feeling really emotional at this moment. I talked to mom for about 3 minutes. Ya'll she had chemo #5 2 days ago. She is usually a talker, for her to get me off the phone rather quickly, she's not herself.

She has been in bed all day. She said her body just aches, she feels hot and cold, and her muscles just hurt. It's much worse than the first 4 rounds. She has me scared. I have mulled over in my mind for 2 hours whether or not I should try to drive home for 1/2 sat and 1/2 sunday. The week coming up is the last week with the kids. I HAVE TO BE THERE. On the other hand I am broke and in a week and a half I can go home for at least a week. I was planning on taking her to her next chemo treatment. I was planning on some grad school this summer, but it's quite clear mom will need me. So I will put it on the back burner.

I am scared. My mom asked my dad to pick up a pizza after work. He tells her he wants vegetables. She drags herself out of fucking bed to feed his SELFISH, LAZY, INCONSIDERATE ASS. I am trying really hard to imagine where he gets his balls from.

I need your prayers for her and for his LACK of sensitivity.

Feeling sinus pressure today. I took 8 asprin in a matter of 8 hours. My eyes are watery.
On the other hand can I tell you how HAPPY I am that tomorrow is FRIDAY???? I need to clean house something fierce.
I could spend 3 hours in my master bath alone. I don't mind cleaning in general...but I HATE to scrub my shower. It's the one thing I would pay a maid to do without hesitation. Unfortunately, I am still paying 200 a month on the hardwood floors I put in last summer. They are WELL worth it, but I could have a maid every other week for just 100.00. Hmmmmm.....
Does anyone have thoughts on bariatric surgery/lap banding? Share them please.
On another positive note,
9 more days of school!!!!

Wednesday, May 09, 2007

Well all of the teachers and administrators survived the IB visitors. I think everyone feels a bit more relaxed today. YEAH!!!! I'm happy to be in comfy clothes today, thats for sure.
I have nothing else to report, except
11 more days of school !!!!!
I want a personal chef for the summer. Someone to come in cook healthy meals 3 or 4 times a week. Anyone wanna pay for my ideas??? You can send me a landscape artist as well.

I am wanting more people to comment on yesterdays no comments allowed on today's.

What traits have ya''ll noticed to be the

***** TOP 10****

for a lasting relationship? This goes to my married bloggers, my single and even my gay bloggers....

Monday, May 07, 2007

I shall be scarce for a couple of days I anticipate. We have IB approval people coming to see if we meet their standards Monday and Tuesday at work. Everyone will be on tippie toes and fake smiles. Gotta hate politics with this kinda "approval" stuff. I think it's a good idea, however so much BS paperwork for us on things that we ALREADY do in the classroom. Sorry, the way certain people at our school have presented themselves it makes it hard to swallow.

Mom starts 4 more rounds of Chemo today. Please pray. Every two weeks and then we move on to radiation. It's been 6 weeks since surgery, so I hope her body has had enough recovery time to breathe a little bit.

13 more days of school !!!!!!!!!!

OK here's a pic of Bridezilla, me and Nick. She really is a pretty girl and I am happy she has found Her guy...
Not much of a weekend for me to speak of. I am doing laundry and taking out the trash. Geeze, the single life. I did finally manage to rent Notes on a Scandle with Judy Dench. It was a good movie. I wish I had seen it in the theater, but it never came to my city.
I have also been reading some booklets as we have our authorization visit Mon and Tues at school. We are trying to get approved for International Baccelorate programme for the Middle years. Everybody at work is TOTALLY stressed out, our principal tells us to have a drink over the weekend. Good Lord...I have 13 days. However he wants us in church clothes Mon and Tues....I refuse to wear heels to teach in. I woke up dreaming about Krispy Kreme donuts, so I ventured out this morning and got some hot fresh ones! Yeahhh.
Have a pleasant Sunday. I will be reading and cleaning. At least they will both be peaceful!

Are you ready to give up your CHOCOLATE?

Question: what if Hershey went from using cocoa butters in their chocolate to using vegetable fats and artificial sweeteners?
That's what might happen. They're asking the Food and Drug Administration to change the standards in which chocolate is made and classified, to "modernize" the making of chocolate. Hershey isn't the only company asking the question, it's everyone.
This is sacrilege! We all know that chocolate, even when its high in fat and calories, has a lot of health benefits too. And if people want to have diet chocolate or a chocolate substitute, there are plenty of products already on the market. Changing the taste of Hershey chocolate would be like changing America, damn it!
Check out this site to record your protest.

I don't have much to say. I forgot my CIPRO at home on my coffee table. MEOW. I did manage to cover my body in the prescribed creme. It helps some. YEEAAAHHHHHHHH
I just scheduled a sub for Friday. Well I put it in Subfinder and hope someone reliable will pick it up. The lady I like didn't answer her phone. I bet she's booked! The kids don't like her, so I know I do = )

No news here, just been going home from work, bathing and layering my skin with that stuff.
As a teacher we only get paid once a month. I got paid and now I'm broke. My bills are paid, I just don't have any left over. MEOW

I commented on D's blog. Do you think my rash will/can spread to my kitties as they try to rub up against my legs? I am trying to get them to stay way. But its heart breaking ..I LOVE MY BABIES!!!!!
