All hair dyeing adventures aside (which I love, btw!), it was a wonderful weekend. The weather was gorgeous and springlike almost all weekend resulting in a lot of fun—I’ll let the pictures tell the story!
I got a new camera so my sisters and I had fun with it…first at Walmart and later on the way to our bike path
This poor guy was the ONLY male in the whole row of hair dye!
(My frozen pet dragonfly my brother found in his boat)
The rest of the pictures are from our bike ride, or the car ride to/from…
And as a fantastic end to the weekend, I got to meet my friend D’s week old baby Matthew. SO TINY and CUTE!!!
What did you do this weekend? Hope you had a good one!

Ever since my meeting last week with my boss, which I don’t think I’ve talked about here, work has been a stressful weird. My boss isn’t acting in the happiest manner towards me, even though I tried to be up front and professional, and let me just say that she turned it around and made it seem juvenile. I felt like I was in a grade school to be honest, not sitting with another adult.
Which is why I have dungeon Mondays & Tuesdays. I don’t know who said it first, me or one of my coworkers, but when anyone sees me out of the room on M/T (NOT often, Jessa cannot manage the class apparently) they say, “Escaped from your dungeon?” LOL!
Everyone in my life is trying to be helpful when it comes to job uncertainty. I know they are. I know that a few years from now, I’ll look back on this time and realize that it all made sense. For now though, I’m teetering on the edge of uncertainty and insanity, I believe. Not sure which side I’ll fall off of first.
However, I only have seven more school days until spring break. I’m going on a trip…and can’t wait! I’ll be in the car for about 40 hours with Hope, and we’ll be visiting some of her family as well as a few members of my extended family. We will see water and more importantly, experience WARM, perhaps even HOT, weather. I cannot wait!

I am stuck in a rut lately. After my awesome weekend I feel like I've been stuck in a rut. I'm BUSY, BUSY, BUSY...and happily so. In my life outside of work, I'm happy as a clam visiting with friends, having my family visit for a night, having phone and in-person interviews for summer jobs, and enjoying my coworkers' antics.
At work though?
That's another story. I'm caught between feeling soooo sad if this is my last year at the school and wishing the year was just over due to all the Jessa crap. I absolutely love my coworkers, but hearing questions about Jessa day after day is wearing on me. In fact, a few of my coworkers and I have made a pact NOT to talk about her or the drama that surrounds her "job" there, which has been almost a fun challenge!
I talked to Aniya tonight and she asked me, as many people have been lately, what I would do if I *do* leave my school after this year. The truth is that I have NO idea. I'm stuck. I want to be a stay at home mom. It's been my dream forever and while I've been happy at my school and truthfully thought I would be there until I got married and started a family...I could go back to nannying, I guess, or work in another school? I have no desire to go back to school for any type of degrees, sorry...
Sigh. I'm feeling a bit down tonight. Anyone else stuck in a rut?

I wasn’t sure tonight if I was going to write an optimistic post or a pessimistic one, given the past week or so of my work week. However…after taking my school kids OUTSIDE (for the FIRST time since the fall!!!!!!!!!!) I decided to just share with you what I saw-
Spring is coming, guys! We can make it!
