It's time for another It's Ok Thursday!  :)  And it's a BIG one...if you link up, you could win stuff! :)

Let's get down to business, shall we?

It's Okay...

...that I can't believe I'm actually 33. I definitely don't FEEL 33. Wow.

...that I need to get cracking on school stuff...

...that I cringed when I saw the back to school Target's still July! :)  It's still summer! :)  Give it time!

...that I just added this line to have an odd number :).

Totally Unmotivated

Do you ever have those days where you just don't feel like doing anything?

Summer Today is one of those days.
I have so much I should be doing:
Picking the two shows for the year (ideas are in my head, people)
Cleaning my house (free cat hair to anyone that wants it!)
Doing laundry
Revamping my Brit. Lit. Class
Creating pre/post tests
Organizing my classroom
Sending my aunt's birthday card in the mail...her birthday was the 4th. Oops. many books to read...

I did work yesterday...we had final interviews for our new art teacher, so that's something.
And I have gone to boot camp two days in a row (today is a day what will I be doing later? Running three miles!).

So this is what I've been busy with otherwise...

Here's Squeak doing her Blue Steel impression:

She's a natural.

I lead an exciting life, people. Exciting.

I also decided I'm probably going to chop my hair again. I've been growing it out for about 6 months and it's almost to my of course I want it in a nice, neat bob at my chin again.  Hrm.

 Hair now...

I was going for this:

Not exactly what I got...hmmm...

This is what I think I'm going for next:

(Yes, I take pictures of pictures, and also pictures from the computer...I'm terrible with technology)  (Also, not my baby...though he is a cutie!)

What do you think?

Happy Wednesday!

What's on my mind :)

This is going to be a list/brain dump post :).  So, pretty much my standard? 

I'm starting a boot camp tonight.
I'm a little nervous.
I'm kind of a wussy.

I ran three miles yesterday and the day before!
I never thought I'd be able to do that.

We got back from our SF trip LAST Monday.
My suitcase is still sitting in our bedroom.
At least it's mostly empty?
I hate unpacking.

I signed up for the Pig Gig 5K in August.
It's one week after our Warrior Dash, so I guess I'll run the next 5K if I live through the WD.

This summer has been so busy.
It's flying by.

Do you want to see some pictures from the trip? :)

Pic 1=The Painted Ladies (or the houses from Full House!)
Pic 2=The view from the parking garage near Pier 39
Pic 3=Wedding decorations from the wedding we went to (gorgeous!)
Pic 4=The Golden Gate Bridge
Pic 5=Clos LaChance...the wedding venue/vineyard

Happy Monday!

Sunday Social :)

Sunday Social Week 5

This is my first time linking up! You should link up, too! :)

Sunday Social

This weeks questions:

Favorite TV show of the past: 
Friends! I still watch the reruns, and of course, the dvds!  I wish they would do a reunion show (and it would last another 10 years!)  I loved Full House, Perfect Strangers, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Seinfeld, ER (The great Thursday night line up of the 1990s!), etc. I can't even remember all the names of the shows, but if it was on on Thursdays in the 1990s, or Friday in the 1980s, I was watching :).

Favorite TV show currently: 
Happy Endings, Cougar Town, Drinking Made Easy, The Middle...

 Cougar Town

Which Reality Show would you NEVER do? 
Pretty much all of them? I don't really watch Reality TV. It seems so scripted!

Which Reality Show would you LOVE to do? 
American Idol...though I'm too old now, and I don't sing the way they want you to!

TV personality/character that you feel is most like you? 
In high school, I was called Phoebe from Friends...I was kind of...ditzy. :)


TV character you'd want to date?  
None? :)

Best trip you've ever been on
Best idea for a girls weekend trip
Best idea for a couples trip
Best vacation on the cheap

It's okay to be thankful Thursday link up! :)

Its Ok Thursdays 
It's been a while since I've linked up and I've yet to do the thankful Thursday part, so let's get shaking, shall we? :)

It's not feel like I've accomplished much yet on summer break.
It's really LOVE CA, but still be happy to be home.
It's okay...that I just read the first book of The Hunger Games (it was pretty good!).
It's okay...that I'm not sure I want to read the other two's so anxiety-inducing!
It's okay...that I'm such a sporadic blogger! I won't clog up your feed ;)...and I'm still a loyal reader!


I'm thankful...for air conditioning in this relentless Michigan heat!  So many people don't have it, and I'm grateful.
I'm thankful...for awesome parents and a kick-ass husband :)
I'm thankful...for a fabulous trip to San Fran to see my cousin and his gorgeous bride tie the knot. 
I'm thankful...for summer break!  Oh, how I love thee.
I'm thankful...for allergists that can get you in the same day so you can try to run without wheezing.
I'm thankful...for interesting bloggers who keep me reading :).

Thanks for hosting this great link up, girls!
