Stress Made Me Do It...not me someone else

Heard this on the radio this morning.

Teacher gone crazy. Couldn't take her student playing with her braid in class, so she cut it off! OMG!! If I were the mother, I would of gone crazy. The mother wants the teacher to lose her job...rightfully so. You should have a little more patience than that.

Being a teacher can be a challenge, but seriously enough to cut the students hair? Really?

As for our potential new life in the ever so balmy state of Minnesota.... is still up for some SERIOUS debate.

Life Changing...Should I or Not?

It's been 6 weeks since hubby lost his job. He has had some great networking opportunities and even had a job interview. Well the one and only job interview turned into 2 interviews and then an offer! Yeah! RIGHT!

There is only ONE HUGE problem, this opportunity for him will have us moving to a new state. That is so scary for me. How do you make a life decision like that? How will my kids react? Can I leave my career and family for this really great opportunity? I have so many thoughts right now, I can't even explain how I am feeling.

With all of this, I still need to take photos of my kids and just maybe there will be a Happy New Year card instead of a Christmas one. I've been so bad at that taking opportunities that is.

Need Some New Wheels or Skis?

Oh the weather outside is about to turn frightful and I am in denial. So, don't let it snow, no snow, NO SNOW!!!

I would be EXCITED for this if I didn't have big travel plans. I've had these conference plans since September. I am going to Chicago for a 2 day conference with a super good friend and teacher.

They are predicting 6-12 inches of snow for my area. I really don't want to drive in this kind of stuff. It would take about 90 minutes to drive on a normal day....I can't imagine with this kind of snow. I'll just wait and see what happens.

We are staying in a hotel, doing some shopping, going out to dinner, and chatting. Oh, I can't forget learning new things too.

Then, after the snow hits, we will be slammed with yucky COLD temps. Like highs in the teens. Welcome to winter and it hasn't officially began!

NO more...MUST have WILL power

I need to stop eating chocolate. Lately I can't get enough of the stuff. I crave it constantly! I need to have self control and STOP!!! Dark chocolate is my new found favorite.

I ran the Turkey 10K race last Thursday. It was COLD, RAINY, and WINDY here in Wisconsin. I finished it and beat my time last year by 45 seconds!! That's a start. I want to run the Jingle Race this weekend, but the weather is suppose to just suck. I want to beat my PR time for a 5K and beat my arch rival too! He is driving me nuts!!

Maybe Santa will bring me a crystal ball for Christmas. I really want to know what our family's future will be.....

I also need to take pictures for Christmas and this blog! UGH!!!
