tick tock…….   Leave a comment

why do Friday’s always seem to go so slow?

Every other day of the week seems to move faster than Friday’s do.
Could it be because the weekend starts as soon as I walk out this door?


I think so!

it saddens me   Leave a comment

I am a custodian at an elementary school in Iowa City Iowa

It is a decent job, sometimes hard job and  I stay here because they pay me such a great wage.

however, it saddens me greatly to see the waste the college educated teachers in this school put out.

Literally thousands of  pieces of paper that they print hundreds of copies of something and then decide they aren’t going to use it so they throw it away.

And yes we have a recycle system in place, but…….

that is not the point.

the point is why make hundreds of copies of something when you have thirty students in your classroom?

Why not let the students use the back of the paper for an art project or for notes or something that isn’t so wasteful.

It saddens me.

it has been brought to our principal’s attention about the waste but he has so many irons going at once that a little thing (to some anyway) like paper waste can’t concern him.

I admire him greatly but something needs to be done about how much teachers waste stuff at this school!

drip   Leave a comment

I am sweating so much sweat is literally dripping from my scalp on to my glasses as I work.

If I have never mentioned it before I HATE hot and humid weather!


Water drop

I wish I could jump in to this big pool of water and cool off.

Here it is almost 8:30 and I should be going to bed.

That five thirty rolls around quite quickly and I think I am still playing catch up from those two nights earlier in the week when I barely slept.

God willing my mind will quiet down and I will be able to sleep

Tomorrow is Friday, so that is great too.

I think it must be me~   1 comment

I change the appearance of my blog nearly every week.
I get tired of it looking the same.
I like shaking it up a bit.

I don’t care for the white backgrounds so my preferable colors are blue and green

I don’t mind the apricot if I could get the other colors I like worked into it.

I like the purple too

there is one about a strange blog, titled theme that I like a lot, I just don’t care for the amateur drawings at the bottom of the page

I just like to change it up

and yes I know I am one of the few who do change the appearance quite a bit.
Most people I know don’t even blog anymore.



I love the snow and ice on the trees in the winter.
Just beautiful

(And yes I know the picture doesn’t have anything to do with this blog post, I just like to put pretty pictures up)

Something to look up at the beautiful sky and try and see.

use to   Leave a comment

I use to be able to write so well that it was like my hand had a mind of it’s own.

I use to be able to lose a good ten pounds (when I was determined enough) at hardly any effort.

I use to write ten or twelve blogs in a day~

I use to be able to sleep without taking an over the counter sleeping aid every single night.

I use to have the dream of climbing Mount Everest.
I use to want to learn to play the piano

(Okay, I still want to do that)

I use to have the desire to go to college……

so many things I use to be able or want to do…

And while I feel like I am quite content 90% of the time, once in a blue moon (There is a blue moon coming up on July 31st of this year)

once in a blue moon, I think if only I could believe in myself enough, I could do this………

Maybe it is the devil trying to sneak his way back into my life…….

But I believe God will trust in me enough so that I can be strong and keep the devil out.

it’s got to be here somewhere and other things~~~   Leave a comment

I have misplaced my camera.

Yes I have the phone camera but I have misplaced my camera that my children got me a few years ago.

I’m sure it is in a tub in the basement with other things I haven’t unloaded yet.


I re-arranged my bedroom/den.

I need a space to write as well as have the computer at my disposal so I moved the room around a bit to accommodate that need

I’m sure I will be bumping into my desk a few nights when I get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, but hopefully I will remember it is there sooner rather than later as the nights progress.


I found a new blog to read.
A woman from Florida no less commented on one of my blog posts so I went to her blog.
She has some interesting reads.

Her blog is titled Mermaid In A Mudslide

I highly recommend her.

change of plans   1 comment

well my eldest daughter isn’t coming to Iowa after all this weekend.

Guess a gas line was hit and her neighborhood had to evacuate and the fire department took it upon themselves to kick down her back door to get into her house and make sure she didn’t have a gas leak in her house.

So she has to stay in Milwaukee to get a new door on her back door.

So we changed the birthday party back to Saturday which is my husband’s actual birth date, and where we originally had it planned for.

it stinks that Paula can’t join us, but hopefully she will be able to come down soon.


the 6 of us last year 2014

Rick, Paula, Emily, Me, Brian and Matt.
