Where am I?

I have a confession to make.....I am addicted to gamecube!!! My daughters have Animal Crossing and I was bored a few weeks ago and got hooked on this game......I come home from work and just play until bedtime.....and I do take time out for dinner but that is it.....

I haven't been reading email either....or playing and finding stuff on the computer....I think its because work is getting stressful. I have 15 students who don't speak English as their first language...most of them are doing well but I got a new student today who only speaks Spanish. Its a good time for me to practice my Spanish. Plus the kids are just wearing me out....LOL....but I am enjoying working with them.

So other then that nothing much has been happening......I have been working on some quilts but nothing serious.....I will get better at the blogging again...

This Saturday is the JROTC countywide competition and I will be there to help out. I get to help the girls uniforms to make sure they are ok and all the same....then I get to cheer on my high school kids....I love hanging out with them....they are the ones that keep me young....I will tell you how they made out....

Out with the Old and In with the New!

Well today was cleaning day....I started right after breakfast. I didn't do much but I did get lots of junk thrown out. I cleaned out two shelves on a bookcase. Now you may say that isn't much but we can pack a lot of garbage in 2 shelves. I had almost all of my college papers still there in the binders. So out all the papers went in the recycling bin and I am taking the binders to school for my kids to use when theirs break or fall apart. I have 18 binders to bring to school. Once I was done with that I put the other items from another bookcase into those two shelves and cleaned out the other bookcase so I can sell it. I never did like it much but I needed it and it was free. It served us well and now it's time for it to move on.

I still need to do more in the dining room but this was a great start. I also took down the quilts and washed them and rehun them so the are all clean now too. I dusted the living room and rehung those newly washed quilts for that room too. I don't know how to paint but I quilt up a storm so I hang my quilts in my home. I love how they look. Then I moved into the kitchen and cleaned that. Then I quit for the day because I was pooped!! LOL

I played on game cube for a while and the computer, cooked dinner, took a shower and played gamecube again. It was a good day.

Tomorrow we all go back to school so I wanted to rest up. I still haven't done any scrapbooking like I wanted to. I might tonight yet. It's too early to go to bed.

I hope you all had a great weekend. Talk to you later.

How I spent the day!

A few years ago Santa brought us Nintendo gamecube.....and the girls stil play on it and they have been playing a game called Animal Crossing. They have done this for years......and I am always too busy to play...but this Christmas break I didn't bring anything home so I have had lots of time on my I learned how to play the game and its a lot of fun.

We asked Santa for a Wii but he couldn't find any in time for Christmas so we are still waiting....LOL.....I am going to get one but I also have to wait until the stores stock back up with them here in town because they sold out for Christmas. There is also an Animal Crossing game for the Wii so I thought I should learn the easy one first. LOL....well now they have me hooked on it...I played all day today and didn't do anything else. It was great.

Tonight though I think I am going to scrapbook for a little while....and then I might go play again.....LOL...

What wonderful things have you all done in the first 2 days of the new year?
