The Amazingness Award
I woke up this morning still very tired from the first week of school. It's amazing how 3 days can feel like forever. Especially when my daughter came in at 6:30 to wake me up! So, when I finally did roll out of bed and came to play on the computer, I found out I had received The Amazingness Award! It perked me up a little this morning!
Here is how it goes:
A. Thank the person who gave me the award:
Thank you to both Sunny at Caffeinated Teacher and also from Undergraound Teacher! Thank you both so much! I enjoy reading your blogs and getting ideas and sharing our joys and frustrations!
B. Share seven things about myself
1. I am not a coffee drinker in the morning, as many people are. I used to drink a lot of soda, but I have stopped. I can somehow make it through the day!
2. I am the only one in my family that has gone to college and completed it. I have a BS degree in Elementary Ed, a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction and a second MA emphasis in reading.
3. I feel like I live on a farm. I have 3 dogs, 2 cats, 6 chickens and 2 ducks. If Hubs has his way, we would have a goat and a sheep. If my daughter had her way, we would have a horse!
4. I have been married for almost 8 years. I have a 4 year old daughter. And one is enough. I hate it when people ask me how old she is and tell me it's time for another one. I don't think so. I almost died having her, thanks to my doctors stupidity. I had to have a crash c-section (thank you again, Dr. Ass) and then they forgot to count everything. SO, 3 days later, I got sick, had to have another surgery and then visited the cardiac unit for 2 more days. Yep, I'm done having kids. One scary-ass situation is enough for me!
5. I'm a morning person. I can be at school an hour and a half early and enjoy it. By 9pm, I am not a happy person to be around.
6. I love my job. I always wanted to be a teacher since I was in the 2nd grade. It was something I think I was born to do. I may not be the most creative or most fun teacher, but my kids learn and they do well. We have fun, but we ar learning at the same time!
7. I work in the same district I went to school in. Some of the teachers and administrators are still there! I actually worked at my old elementary school for 6 years til they shut it down. There were 4 teachers or so who were there when my brother, sister and I were kids. I was sad they closed it.
C. Pass the award onto 15 other bloggers
There are a only a few blogs I follow, so I may not be able to pass the award to 15 people, but I'll see what I can do!. Here are a few blogs that I make sure to read every day!

There are probably more, but now my daughter is climbing on me to play!
