Life happened!

As you can tell, I took a little hiatus from the world of blogdom. Why? Life happened. That's my newest phrase.

I'm a teacher, so I was busy with end of the school year stuff. There was a trip to Georgia over Memorial Day weekend, the Kidergarten graduation to plan and prepare for, trying to get a summer job, my car died on me (took $450 to fix), a trip to Iowa, starting my summer job, etc. etc. etc.

By the by, I LOVE my summer job! I'm working at a nearby Dress Barn, a clothing store for women. It is great, and I'm good at it, too! My job is to actively help the customers. You know how at some stores, the workers say "hi," and that's it? Well, at DB, I help women find the perfect outfit, or hopefully outfits! When they are done shopping, I am supposed to ring up them up personally. The computer keeps count of how much money each worker sells. The more I sell, the more hours I get.

Well, I am awesome at doing all that! I'll be helping five customers at once. I bring in the money! Each day, we have a $ goal, usually between 400 and 500. I always reach above my goal. On Saturday, I was the top sales person at over $1200! I rock!

Well, there's no question for today, just this update. I'll try to post regularly now. And visit yall's blogs, too!

These are a few of my favorite things...

girls in white dresses with red satin sashes
snowflakes that fall on my nose and eyelashes
brown paper packages tied up with string

okay, so i probably completely messed up the lyrics. So sorry. however, the concept remains... What are some of your favorite things?

Especially in regards to summertime! Okay, so many bloggers live in various parts of the country/world. So your climates are vastly different from Pennsylvania. Oh well. The question still will remain: what are some of your favorite summer things???

I like picnics in parks :-) Though i've rarely done this in the past few years. I do hope to this summer though. Its just so much fun. Take a blanket, sit on the grass, enjoy the warm weather and nice breeze.

What's your favorite things?

Deal or No Deal?

So, whats the deal with the whole bird flu thing??? is it something we should really be thinking about and preparing for?

I thought: "no-- people just like to worry about silly little things."

but then of course, oprah had a segment about it. She was talking with some Infectious Disease Specialist guy. And he said that this strand of flu is extrememly similar to the 1918 flu pandemic.

So, of course, if oprah says it, it must be true. So, as soon as my precious little daughter wakes up from her nap, we're off to the grocery store to buy lots of bottled water and canned foods.

Question for you:
-Are you worried about the bird flu?
-Is it something that we need to all prepare for?
