I did it again!

So I stayed awake all night just finishing the Catching Fire book of Hunger Games. I am so happy and excited to be through another book as well as making my way through a few more books. I also read 2 other books this month and that brings the grand total of books read of 10! I am really proud of my accomplishments. I am giving myself a round of applause. Here are the books I read and I think you should too.

Amsterdam and catch up

I havent been around much mostly because our family laptop crashed so I have had internet withdrawals. Waz went out and bought us a schnazzy desktop so now I am chained to one location in order to drink tea and type. Makes me feel like I actually am doing something important. Anywho work has been going well, I added on a twice weekly watching of a boy with special needs each week so at least without a doubt I will be working for two days every week. Its nice for things to be stable around here. We are gearing up for our trip to Spain in less than three weeks (woohoooo) and I am nothing but excited. We finally bought our swimsuits yesteday and it looks like I am not the only one who will be in a tiny bikini lol. Thats right Wazi has some confidence.

I have also been working away at planning a trip for our unit to Berlin so Ive been busy crunching numbers and pretending like I am a travel advisor. I love this kind of stuff.

Our house has been pretty much running like a well oiled machine. I have been buying the most organic or natural foods I possibly can and our bodies definitely are shoing the results, we are less groggy and I am getting less headaches on top of it. I figured that since I was cleaning my body system and working out all the time that I might as well go natural with my hair too so Ive been growing it out since last fall and it is all kinds of crazy at the moment. I am getting it professionally done tomorrow to see if I like what the stylist can do and then Ill have her do it again a few days before our trip to spain.


Why yes, yes I am Amsterdam.
Clog shoe racing!

One of the multitude of canals on our one really sunny day.
The entrance to the Valkenburg caves. Yes I am super bundled because it was freezing AND I look as touristy as possible.

So we went on a multitude of adventures and museums and a dairy farm and saw a windmill and so much adventure in only 5 days. Hopefully the pictures load up enough, I have the rest on my facebook but I took over 100 in just the Valkenburg caves so I dont want to make anyones brain explode. If you notice my partner in crime is absent its because he couldnt get time off from work so I had to go without him. Sad... but that just means I have an excuse to go again and now I know where to take him.

So thats my week in a nutshell, sorta cool.

Update/finished another book

I am still having a hard time, but I am thoroughly enjoying making myself feel better. I leave for Amsterdam on Thursday and I will be there for a few days enjoying myself, and when I get back the school is on spring break so it is a free for all at my house. I plan on reading until the pages catch fire. Oh and we officially joined Faith Baptist Church and are now members. It feels nice to be apart of a church body again. Besides that I have been working hard, today was my first official yell at a kid, send him out of my classroom and then follow it up with detention. I hate being mean, but there is only so much I can take when they are constantly disrupting my class. I made them stand up, apologize to the other person involved, apologize to me, and then they had to apologize to their whole class. Another teacher heard me yelling and assured me I was in the right so I dont feel like I am going to be fired at the moment. I guess I didnt beat him so thats positive lol.

I'll make sure to update with pictures after our trip so you can be jealous of my world travels.

So another book bites the dust. I couldnt put it down and I read like a maniac. This now leads me to 7 or 8 books read this year :) I am so proud of myself for setting a goal and actually following through. I currently have 3-4 books open at all times including my kindle and my vampire book I am too afraid to start since it is the last book it in 8 book serious. I hear they are going to make it into a movie so I suppose that is one more thing I get to critique. Speaking of the movie adaptations, I posted a week or two ago about the Hunger games movie. I do not want to spoil it for anyone, but after finishing the book I am completely confused by the ending of the movie since it isnt the same as the book. I hope they fix it in the second movie, and make it rated R since the book is pretty bloody. Alright thats enough of the commenting on the book.
