Teachers Love Oklahoma

With a heavy heart I come to you today. I have been quiet lately, end of year crazies setting in! As you know, I am from Oklahoma. Tornados are nothing new to me. However, this storm cell has hit home so to speak. My cousins home is gone. They found her puppies in the rubble. The storm continued on, and hit about 15 miles outside of my town.  It is hard to say, what I would do in the event of a tornado. But I feel this would be close.

Listening to: Law and Order: SVU. It is my background noise about 75% percent of the time!
Loving: That it will be summer in 17 days. I am not excited to be out of school, I am excited about sleeping in and spending time with hubby.
Thinking: Same thing, I miss my hubby. I don’t get to see him that often. And recently he has been on a call during his lunch hour, so I see him when I wake up in the morning and he is snoring…Zzzzz.
Wanting: To enjoy these crazy kids for the next few days. This is my favorite time of the year, and I forget how little and helpless those incoming kiddos are!
Needing: To go for a little walk. I am trying to exercise more. And I need to go walking tomorrow.
SBL: I am going to I Teach K, and am SUPER excited about it! Going to get to meet some of my Bloggy Friends…Squeal!!!! So pumped!!! And get to spend time with the hubs…. Can’t wait!!
