Oh boy...today's been a crazy day! Well, first off...it's raining! Ehhhhhh...then the kids were acting crazy at school because they've been cooped up for three days with no outdoor time! Argh! THENNNNN I fiind out that in the afternoon, the classrooms are combining and me and another teacher would have 11 kids (2 of which can't walk!)- wow...it was crazy! It ended up going pretty well, thank goodness. I opted to work until 6:30 tonight, since I was throwing up all day on Monday.
For lunch today, Nikkie and I went to the gym and worked out. Yay! We were sooooo not wanting to go....the rain made us lazy, but we talked each other into going and are so proud that we did! I did 5 miles on the bike and 1 mile on the eliptical. I didn't go crazy today, but I got some done. Richie's going to join us at the gym on Monday so that he can show me how some of the machine's work and also to kind of show me exactly what I should be doing. The goal is to lose 70 pounds. So far I have not lost anything, but it's my first week working out (and I'm still not on my 100% strength of synthroid....I will be as of Sunday).
Rachael was decent at school today, but she also didn't have any accidents! Yay! I was so happy when I saw her! She still had her pants on from this morning! She is proud of herself also- as soon as she saw me, she ran to me and started telling me all about how she went poopie in the potty! She's doing pretty well. We're going to buy her some more panties this weekend so that it will motivate her even more (and I won't have to do a load of laundry everyday so that I can wash her panties!)-
Tonight we all went out to dinner at Tony's Pizza. We love that place- we walk out of there stuffed and we usually have 2 slices to bring home...and it only costs us 20.00 with tip! Hot diggity dog.
Random: Rachael was in class the other day and her friend (we'll call him "S") shared his playdough with her, and she said "Thank You S for sharing your playdough with me, and Thank you God for making S." DUDE...SHE ONLY 2!! What two year old talks like that?!
Anywho...I've gotta get to bed, I'm exhausted! Nighty!

Well, as most of you know, I wasn't the best at keeping up with my last blog...and the real problem is that I couldn't remember what email address/password I used for it...so this is my new blog! I'm going to try to update this bad boy as much as I can!
This is just going to pretty much be the ramblings of my every day life. I don't suppose many people will actually read this, except for maybe Kristen and Miguel (they always read my last one!) But whatever...
Here goes my first post:
So...today my co teacher was out (scheduled day off)- and they put one of the laziest teachers in my classroom to help out with nine of the worst children on the planet! Needless to say, it was a rough day. There was lots of butt wiping, screaming, hitting, kicking and tantrum throwing. All in all, a decent day ;-)
I went with Nikkie house hunting. That was fun. Well, not really, but we were bored...hehehehe.
Rachael's getting better with her potty training (in case you have no idea as to who I am, Rachael is my two year old sassy daughter). She had an accident today...but I give it another few weeks before we're completely rid of those damn pampers! She was extra sassy today (as she lives up to her true nickname of "Sass-a-frass") She ate like a mofo at dinner tonight! She almost ate an entire personal pizza! Holy cow! Hehehe...
Tomorrow is yet another day of wiping butt. It should be a little better, because Tingy will be there with me to deal with the pain! Then Nikkie and I are going to the gym to work out (my goal is 70 pounds all together) I want to be a skinny chica again! Then it's off to dinner with Richie and Rachael. We usually go to the pizza place next to Richie's job (oh yah....Richie's the hubster)- Yay for tomorrow! It's GONNA BE FRIDAY!
I think that when Richie's playing football on Saturday, I may head to Once Upon a Child to look for some sweet summer deals for Rachael's summer clothes. Gotta do whatcha gotta do!
Anywho....that's about all for today. It was a decent start, and hopefully more to come!
