Grade? What????

I'm procrastinating today :). I have a small mountain of papers to correct and it's almost 3:00 and I haven't done any of it. But I've done a lot of other things...
  • I had coffee with toast while reading the last book of the Twilight series "Breaking Dawn" ~So hard to put down.
  • Made a nice breakfast for the family.
  • Did two loads of laundry and put away.
  • Mopped kitchen.
  • Washed dishes by hand instead of using dishwasher (love my new sink).
  • Had a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.
  • Went on Facebook (twice) ~checked my farm (Farmville).
  • Wrote on my blog :).
  • Talked to my daughter and mama on the phone.
  • Made a nice lunch.
  • Vacuumed.
  • Cleaned our bedroom.
  • Read my book again.
  • Spend time with my husband watching a show on prohibition "Boardwalk."
  • Took papers out of my rolling cart in an attempt to start grading.
You know what would really be perfect about now? A piece of chocolate cake. YUM!

I think I'll make a chocolate cake!

Happy Fall Saturday everyone!!

Love, Love, Love

I love my new kitchen!!! It is so functional! Feeling very blessed. This is the first time in the almost 35 years of marriage that we have a new kitchen ~ beautiful on top of that.

The expression "Cocinar con carino" has definitely become the norm in this sweet place. We love it.

Happiness on the homefront. :)

BUT at work ~ darn it!! I am feeling so overwhelmed with all that our principal is requiring of us. She seems to add more and more to our plate as each week goes by or maybe I should say as each day goes by. I dread opening the e-mails in the morning. Ok, I'll play the game ~ no problem, but don't expect me to be happy about it. We are beginning to steer clear of the office. Hmmmm.....does she notice???

Sometimes I think I'm just getting too old for this job. Time to leave it to the young ones with more stamina and patience. I tell myself to hold on for at least three more years ~ then I'll cruise through life with my Honey. :)
