Day 209 (574)

Very tired after last night's watch.  A huge amount of high schoolers descended upon the empty house next door late last night. Not sure if it was the extra lights I had on and possably  the other neighbor did too, but the mob moved on and didn't come back.
Things seem quiet today, I hope it stays that way.  They should hopefully have the busted out window boarded up tomorrow.
So tired, drained and deeply sad today.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 208 (573)

Another day of frustration.  Was suppose to go to my friend Amy and Tony's wedding, but ended home calling the police as more people break into the empty house next door. Even after they chased off 3 guys, more popped up afterwards.  A total of 12.  They are going reboard it on Monday. The whole afternoon was a giant ball of stress. Btw don't tell my doc.
I did visit with the neighbor in the house on the other side of empty house and her rambunctious bulldog to give her a heads up. 
The best to you Amy and Tony as you begin this journey together, sorry I couldn't be there.

Day 207 (572)

I'm so grateful for my doctor.  It's nice to hear what I've been thinking isn't off base.  She gave me a lot to ponder, a lot, but the questions don't have easy answers nor solutions, but the questions have been there at the back of my mind.
Also a weird night in the neighborhood, with some one(s) breaking in the house next door again, and a large amount of teens running through yards and eyeing that house AGAIN.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 206 (571)

Lots of errands, $600 on car stuff that didn't expect, but got answers about leg pain from my chiro....still wiped and such.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 204 (569)

What a beautiful day!  Got up early and did some major weeding in the beautiful morning air.  Add in a run, nice lunch at a local restaurant, a visit to the library and a phone call with my awesome sis made it an awesome day.
Almost forget to do a project today.

Day 203 (568)

Summer break is here! I decided to focus on the day and that's all.  Spent most of the day cleaning the house.  Feels so good and peaceful.  Just need to tackle the basement.
For some reason I can't get on line on my phone, so my posts ate getting backed up.
Peacw and fabulousness.

Day 202 (567)

Having a spot of trouble getting my internet to work on the phone.
Zoned thru the day, but did come up with this piece .
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 201 (566)

Day 1 of break, spent part of the day volunteering at second harvest heartland's pack-a-thon.  So glad I could be part of it. It was a good way to get involved in this great organization, plus I got my ugly mug on the news, lol.
Feeling hyper exhausted again today, need to find a place of peace and make the most of this time off....
Today's piece a bit simple, but I don't have the mental ability to go any more complex. Oh well.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 200 (565)

What. A. Day! Poop, periods, attitudes, silliness, incomplete data for reports, craziness of epic proportions, but in the end Summer SLAM is done! 
I need to have some fun and eat.  Sounds crazy but I just want to enjoy some good food, real food!
Tonight I'm hyper exhausted, but my piece says it all.
Peace and fabulousness

Day 199 (564)

Went on an awesome field trip with an amazing group of students. They were so responsible, and yet through themselves into the fun of it.
So much to do tonight, but getting more done than I thought possible.
Tonight's piece - keeping it simple.
Peace and fabulousness

Day 198 (563)

I um ...totally spaced out what I was going to blog about. Lol Sometimes you just want to curl up in a ball of darkness and escape for a bit. Maybe within the darkness you'd find that light which fully express yourself. An explosion of sorts, a rebirth, a new direction, hope, being.
Peace and fabulousness.
This piece is how I feel my summer students see me... :( minus the dress and fancy hat :)

Day 195 (560)

Sooo tired today.  So so so so tired!  Actually called in sick for my volunteer slot....and took an hour nap.  Unheard of. I don't nap.  There is one week left of the summer program and it's suppose to be a major heat wave. One week has never seen so long before.  Got to talk to mom today which was a blessing.  She wants the summer program to be done as much as I do. That's hard to top.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 191 (556)

:( after a night of insomnia a rough day. Ended up suspending 2 kids.  Wanted to sit out and enjoy this gorgeous night, blah.  Every noise an irritant, couldn't sit more 10 minutes realizing all I have to do the next week 1/2 and worried about what is left to come. 
I'm just tired, tired, tired. 
Peace(please) and fabulousness

Day 190 (555)

To think its only Tuesday.  At one point I had 8 kids sent to me within a 10 minute span.  Plus given a 4 page outline given to me 20 minutes before I was to give a tour.
This week is feeling long already.

Day 188 (553)

Trying to stay present in the moment today, but knowing work awaited tomorrow was like a storm cloud coming up from the horizon.  I hate counting down days but that's where I'm at. 
I did have some cool moments with the nature in my yard as a hawk entered the area. It's amazing how the different species help each other out.
Peace and fabulousness.

Back in the heart of summer school.  Tired.  Home only to hear fire crackers throughout the night, kids blowing noisemakers, angry birds.... Just must be sound sensitive after breakfast and lunch with 130 kids.  Really happy now with my decision for the next few days. 
Peace and fabulousness.
