A Quick {possibly scary} Glimpse into my Head

Thoughts on weather:
"Is that thunder?  It is!  This better be legit." hour later
"It's raining! Come on, turn the power back on, it's raining!"
... 5 seconds later
"5 raindrops.  Seriously!?"

Glitchy McGlitch a Lot {alternately titled: I love FB}

Brilliant Idea: Host a virtual fundraiser on Facebook to raise awareness for the school and help get a kid scholarshipped into Hope!

Execution: Made a cute logo, filled out all information, invited 356 friends, included 'pinned' post with link to give, every couple days updated the page and 'shared' it on my timeline.

Result: {almost a complete} f. a. i. l.  5 donations.  Better than nothing.  But seriously? Five?

Research: Skyped with a friend one day, mentioned the fundraiser - "The what? What was that?  When was that?  I'm your best friend, why didn't I hear about it?"

Down by the River

That's where our new house is.  Across the street from the river.  Our. New (to us). House.
 *disclaimer - the following pics are all from my phone, sorry for poor quality!
The view from the road (the river is behind me, beyond another row of houses)
Let me back up...

My New Friend Co-yin. (colin)

I like the playground.  It's big.
There are SO many lots of kids there.  Kids running.  Kids sliding.  Kids swinging.  Kids climbing.
First I tried to walk to the little slide but there were so many kids.  I was scared.

A {somewhat} Typical Day in the Life of Me

6:15 Alarm goes off.  Snooze button is pressed.
Repeat two times.
6:30 Pitter patter, pitter patter, "Sun come up? I lay in mamapapas bed?" "Yeah baby, come on."
6:50 Conclude snuggle time with the little bear in bed with his Bible for kids app on my phone.
6:55 Get up to get ready for the day, Bill has already prepared breakfast (he's amazing) today it was pancake leftovers.
7:35 On the road, with my copilot in the back seat, to pick up the other teachers for school.
"Miss Ho-yee sit here, Miss Becky sit here, Miss Megan sit here, cause there's no more room back here."
