She Blogs!

It seems as if it has been forever since I was able to post!  Nothing and everything happened:).
  • The contents of three spare rooms (yes, I am blessed) have been moved into one workable temporary office room.
  • It took a little longer than anticipated because apparently I shoved all the boxes that I couldn't bear to go through in one of those rooms.  So it was one box, curl up in a ball and watch mindless TV, put on my big girl panties and start on another box, and then repeat the process.  But they are all done! 
  • And don't get me started on the 12 lawn bags full of shredded documents!
  • A double bed, a washer, a freezer, and one beloved canine nephew exited the premises and are living happily with my brother.
  • A new washer and dryer (my first matching pair ever, deep sigh) are in place.
  • Tile guy contacted to finish the tile job started in January and halted to await the removal of the above mentioned giant unnecessary freezer. 
  • Contractor consultation for new fence, pergola, office, and flooring.
  • Consultation with the AC repair boy who delivered the news that a new AC unit is absolutely needed.
  • Goodby pergola and I guess teal carpet really isn't that bad (deep sigh, sad face).
  • Internet in and out for two days.
I can come up with a million other reasons, but since my plan to go into school tomorrow to take pictures of the wonderful bulletin board that I was going to post about is being derailed by a necessary vet appointment for my senior citizen  Lab - here I am posting at 1:30 a.m.  Back on the bloggin' bandwagon!

Imaginary Bulletin Board Real Life Bulletin Board:

If you are a teacher and have been on Pinterest at all this year, you have seen this pin....

Well, I promised myself that I would make this into a bulletin board.

Pretend there is a picture here of my bulletin board.....I promise there will be a real picture here by the end of the week, just play along...... Not the best picture, apparently, the camera doesn't compensate for the fact that you aren't wearing your glasses.

I used a graphic of a stack of books (easy to find your own), printed out a double copy and took it to Office Depot to make color copies.  It seemed as if this would be more economical than printing out my own (since I need a new AC unit and am doomed to spend the rest of my life with teal carpet), and more practical than cutting out construction paper books.  I took the copies and laminated them at Lakeshore, and cut them out.

Then I made these in Powerpoint.




You can find the complete set of text/mini posters for the bulletin board here.  The frames are by Kathleen Amari-Crookston of Middle Grades Maven.  Check out her TpT store!

I know it seems a little silly to post without my bulletin board picture, but I was not going to let another day go by without posting.  However, I do have a picture to share.
My girl Amy!  Just got home from seeing her at The Greek in Los Angeles!  It was incredible!  She opened her own concert and had Brandon Heath play in the middle because she wanted to see everybody before it got dark.   Our seats were awesome!  On the way there we hit traffic, and seriously had the LAST parking space at the top of the hill.  So on the way out of Griffith Park, we got to take the scary winding road featured in every 1970's police TV show.  It was an adventure and a half!

  1. WOW! That's a lot of house stuff you are dealing with...As for the teal carpeting, just remember that teal is the "it" color right now and you are just ahead of the trend. :)
