Dirty little secrets…

So…….I spent a lot of my Spring Break reading.   Nix that, I spent ALL of my Spring Break reading!  And what I love to read?  When I’m on break and not wanting to think about anything?  Are romance novels/Chic Lit.  It’s embarrassing to say that, but seriously?  When I’m on break I require reading with no thinking necessary.  This particular break however, I read vampire romance novels.  Yep.  You read that right.  Vampire romance novels.  You didn’t know such a thing existed?  So now for my ashamed confession…my secret hope is that vampires do exist.  Not only that they do exist, but that a handsome, slightly dangerous vampire will come along and sweep me off my feet and turn me.  Yep.  I’m pretty sure I’m blushing as I write this.  But there it is.

What’s your most embarrassing hope/wish/secret?


body issues?

When I rolled out of bed this morning around 11 (don’t be jealous, it’s spring break), I put on my sexy new undies and matching bra in anticipation of a lunch “date” with my husband.  Which turned out to be cancelled.  But that’s another story.  And I glanced a look in the mirror.  The full length mirror.  With full sunlight streaming through both windows.  And suprise?  I wasn’t too upset by how I look.  I realized that if I could get rid of one trouble area (it’s genetic, thanks mom), then I would be happy with my body.

So now I’m researching liposuction 🙂

Come on…you know the spot…at least you do if you’ve got curves…it’s not really your outer thigh, but it’s not really your butt either.  It’s the little chunk of fat that sits there and stares at you.  Keeps your legs from looking sexy and gorgeous.  If I use my hands to push that fat back, or hide it, then I LOVE my body.  And don’t tell me there’s an easy way to get rid of that fat.  Because there’s not.  And since my back issues I’ve fallen off the exercise wagon.  It’s so hard to climb back on…

Thankful Thursday

So…last night while I couldn’t sleep I was thinking. And the conversation that I had with Lil kept coming back to me.

The grass is always greener on the other side…I’m jealous of her skinny little size 0 ass and she’s jealous (just a little bit) of my 34D’s and hourglass figure. And that’s the second time in a week that someone has said they wished they had my figure. And since every time they say that, all I can think about is the 10 pounds I want to lose…I decided to write a post of the things that I am thankful for today 🙂

*My hair. I am grateful that I can wear it straight if I blow dry and curly if I don’t without much fuss.

*Spring break with a good book. Woot! Lots of reading and dog snuggling going on over here. You know you’re jealous!

*My job. As much as it drives me nuts sometimes, the truth is, I’m good at it. And it comes easy to me. So that’s a definite plus.

*Leg pain free for like four days. That’s pretty awesome.

*My hubby. ‘Nuff said.

*And finally, the first day this week without rain! I missed you sunshine!

What are you thankful for today?

So Over It

I am over the following things (also, I may be sick of them):

my students
my principal
my school building
temperatures below 50
and most of all my first grade teaching partner

I know I know…as a teacher you’re not supposed to say that you are sick of your students, but seriously? Every teacher has days. And right now? I’m in the middle of a couple of weeks. Spring break starts at 3:15 Thursday. It can’t get here soon enough…
