7 more days

Wow! how come I do not feel my age? I am proudly turning 43 years old in 7 days but man oh man, I do not feel that old. After school gets out I am thinking of going camping in Santa Barbra, I love it up their and I haven't been for a while. Wyatt wants to take a road trip to Tombstone AZ but I an thinking that the 115 degree weather will have to wait and maybe we will road trip to another cooler place. I am working on the list of 43 things I want to do in my 43rd year on Earth, I am excited to share that list with everyone.
I just signed up to begin another boot camp, I am hoping a different location and instructor will help me forget about passing out last summer due to my anemia. It is under control now but I still cannot shake that fear. Wish me luck!
Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Summer Reading

I have seasons for certain activities:

Fall and winter I love to crochet and cook,

in the spring I love to clean and purge and clean and organize

while during the summer I love to read!

I think summer is my favorite time to read because I am on summer vacation and I actually have a chance to relax. My two favorite place on earth to read are in Maine on the lake at camp and on my deck, listening to the ocean. As a child I did not like to read but now I really enjoy it, it is very relaxing.

Some of my books I have piled up on my night stand waiting for me to break into are:

*Eat Pray Love

*Three Cups Of Tea

*The Princess Bride

*Into The Wild

* The Secret Life of Bees

If you have any other good suggestions please let me know.

What are you reading this summer?

Self reflection

I have been super busy since my last post, I know it was a long time ago. I was awarded with an outstanding teacher award and several friends from my school came out to support me, they are all great friends to give up their evening to come support me, I love these people.
Also, I have been planning my class end of the year video, this is my last year of teaching Pre-kindergarten and I want to make it extra special. In addition to ending my school year I am planning my new curriculum and figuring out what I am going to sell on Craigslist from my Pre-K class ( I will not need it anymore). It is very exciting and I am so happy about the change next year.
Speaking of change I have been reflecting alot on my life, friends and my family as my 43rd birthday is getting closer. I have realize life is way to short for fake friends who only want to be around you when they need something from you. I have so many true friends that I do not need the others.
Wyatt is getting ready to finish his first year of high school and has a big presentation of learning to present before a board of 30 to finish up the year. He says I cannot be their because I make him nervous. Teenagers are way more difficult to raise than young children, this is when they really need their parents. They cannot lock themselves off in their rooms and ignore the family, they need to be part of the family unit and communicate daily with us. I am so proud of the man that Wyatt is becoming and taking satisfaction in knowing that as his mom I never gave up on him, he will become very successful in whatever he chooses to become. I know we still have the rest of high school then college to get through, but so far so good, pleas keep us in your prayers.
I am signing up for more photography classes and have two afghans to make for Christmas and I am making a quilt for myself. I will be posting a list of 43 things to do on my 43rd year of life.
Have a wonderful day!

My friend sent me this picture and found it so ironic. BP is a Canadian company and with this Gulf disaster it is sad that they have these signs still up at the pumps.
