Bad Blogger

I am officially, a terrible blogger.  I have let too many excuses (and not even good ones) keep me from blogging.  I PROMISE to be better!

Just to catch you all up:
  • Wes is still unemployed, but has filed a claim with BP so we are waiting to hear back on that.  He has also been told to just be patient because his complany is sure something else will become available in the future, just not sure yet what/when/where it mat be....
  • I have been subbing a good bit and am really enjoying it!  I have had to stretch my comfort zone a little--I'm used to teaching 2nd grade and have been subbing in 5th and 6th grade classes.  These kids are as big as me!  And I can't be as soft spoken as could with the younger ones.
  • Wes and I went to Orange Beach, AL last weekend to celebrate a friend's birthday.  It was so fun getting to go away for the weekend and relax.  It was COLD, but still lots of fun. 
  • When I was subbing today, something terrible happened.  We heard all the ambulances going to this wreck.  They were seniors from a nearby town that had been to Ole Miss for a career fair.   My heart breaks for those families and that whole school system. 
So, sorry again for my lackluster blogging performance. 


  1. Good luck subbing! I teach 4th grade and I know my kiddos can be rough on subs sometimes.

  2. I know what subbing feels like! It is rough some days!

    Having a great give away that you should enter!

  3. I'm glad you are getting to sub..I know you love it! Hopefully, everything will work out with Wes and his job!

    Randy told me about that bus wreck as soon as he got home! How awful!!!

  4. I've been considering signing up to sub. We could use the extra money and it would be good experience for me since I'm in school. I was in a 1st grade class last semester and I'm in 5th grade math class this semester. At 5'1" there are a lot of students taller than me. I was shocked when a girl that looked like she was 15 got up to work a problem on the board and had her cellphone sticking out of her pocket! Many of the students have cellphones and carry them to school! What?!

  5. Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging and that's okay! :)
