Life . . . the good, the bad and the ugly

I know it has been forever since I have written. My last entry more expressed the ugly of my life. This week has been unbelievably stressful at work. Students being punks, failing post tests, etc. Which makes me feel like a sucky teacher. But I’ll get over it. I suppose this has taught me what I need to work on.

Boys still suck so I guess that is the bad. ; ) My bishop offered to excommunicate some for me. I love that man.

The good is I went to the Temple and received my endowments. Amazing. I have been every week since. I can’t get enough of it. I feel so happy and beautiful when I am there. I wish everyone could¬† feel it . . . the safety, the peace. I can’t help but smile. It has been my escape these last few weeks. And believe me I have needed one.

I have been so tense. It’s a good thing I am going to New York to visit Renbeth in a week. Renbeth’s abode is like my getaway.

I am happy though. Like over all. I have so many good things in my life. I’ve just been frustrated.

I have made a few new friends. They are pretty awesome. I will give them the names Fluffy (which is what I actually call him), Esau (has a mustache) and DC. Guadalupe and I hang out with them all the time now. They are fun. A little crazy at times ( for instance DC took us dumpster diving. He actually jumped in a dumpster and grabbed disposed of jerky at this warehouse . . . he and Fluffy ate some. Which is gross if you really think about it. Guadalupe and I did not.) The guys came over last night and I made everyone watch Arsenic and Oldlace which is a Cary Grant classic. Esau had already seen it (apparently- it is a family favorite which just shows what good taste Esau has.) Fluffy and DC were not sure what to think of it all. I think they secretly loved it. Anyway, they are good guys.

Well, I can’t think of what else to say really. I did try out for a Broadway Revue . . . not sure if I’ll make it in. I have to be able to dance. And I think we all know my dancing skills are close to my running skills. Actually, I did volunteer to teach my ward the turkey dance for our Thanksgiving activity tomorrow. I should probably invent that dance sometime soon. It’s gonna be pretty awesome. People looked excited when I announced it today at church. Or they laughed. One of the two. Whatever . . . I’m pretty sure my ward thinks I am one of the most bizarre girls they have ever met. It’s true. I am different. Really everyone is different. I just happen to be loud about it. Ha ha!



Freckles an oinker?

According to the doctor I have most likely been afflicted with the swine flu the last five days. And it has been driving me nuts not to be teaching. I feel like a parent who has just left their child with the babysitter for the first time. I keep wanting to call up the subs and see how my students are doing. I am feeling much better today and have gone 24 hours without a fever (doc says when this happens I am good to go) so I will be trying to go to work tomorrow.  I just have to say that being sick has been highly obnoxious. Yes. At the same time I did stumble across this tv show called Life. It is this show about a cop who was convicted for a crime he did not committ. After the case is reopened they find the dna does not link to the cop (Crews). So he is released (he was in there for 12 years) and becomes a detective. I totally adore it. And I have been watching episodes almost non stop the last two days which I know is totally horrible of me since I should have been grading research papers. But Crews (Damian Lewis is the actor) is so fascinating to watch. And I find the writing of the show to be excellent. So, there it is. A new show has caught my fancy.

I love Sarah . . .

No, I am not being cocky. I do love me. But I am not to whom I am referring. I love Sarah McLachlan. She is in my top five favorite single female artists. And I adore this new song I have heard from her. Not sure if the song itself is new. I just had never heard it before. The video isn’t superb. But the music is good.
