Day 84


Gabby and Ellie have been cuddling with each other and me all morning on the little "sick bed" I created for myself in the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep. I took a sick day, and they are making me feel a lot better :-) And who would have ever thought that a cat as mean as Gabby would come to love Ellie so much?!

Day 82

A Look at the Past

Going through my past journals for a creative writing class project, I found this picture of Jonathon Taylor Thomas taped into a page from 1998. It was too good not to share with the world. He was my biggest celebrity crush back in the day. I so wanted to be Rachael Leigh Cook in "Tom and Huck"!

Day 81


Today was the first thunderstorm of 2010, and it was brutal! There is a big flood of water going right around the entrance to our house. It was not fun to deal with after Bible study tonight! Luke is currently trying to remedy the situation.

Mary Kay Love

I went to a Mary Kay party hosted by my sister-in-law, and was recruited to have a party of my own in a few weeks! Yay, free stuff! ;-)

Welcome, Spring!

My sister and I spent the first day of Spring in Aurora shopping at the outlet malls and enjoying the scenery! (Photo taken from Julie's phone because my camera battery was dead!)

Day 77

Bad Day, Good Food

This is my sister, Julie, posing outside our favorite Mexican restaurant, Don Ponchos. We went there for dinner with my family, and I really needed it after a very loooong day at work!

Day 76


Yes, I wore green on St. Patty's Day!

Day 75

Basking in the Sunshine

It has been a long time since Ellie has experienced any real warmth from the sunshine. As it flowed through our kitchen window on Tuesday, she kept rolling back and forth on the rug and stretching out like she just couldn't get enough of the warmth! It was really cute :-)

Day 74

Book 2!

I've officially completed my first instructional violin book, and I'm ready to begin book 2!

Homemade Curly Fries!

Day 72

Spent the day at Youngstown State University as a judge for a free HUGE t-shirt! (and took a picture of myself wearing it in the bathroom)

Also walked around campus and discovered this adorable fire hydrant

Day 71

Stopped by the train again!

I really do have bad timing. This happens a lot!

Day 70

Adventures in subbing

I just thought this cute little gumball machine would make a colorful picture. It was found in the first grade classroom where I was pulled to sub on Thursday.

Day 63

It's a Sunshine Day!

Look! Shadows! That could only mean one thing: the sun is shining today! And the sky is blue, and the snow is about 40% melted! Spring is on it's way, even if it is just 36 degrees out there.

Day 62

One of Those Days

I'm still feeling completely tired and not with-it today. This sign, although kind of rude, pretty much matches my mood today :-P It is from a student, and I think it's adorable. And even though, like I said, it's rude...I think it's too cute not to show.

Day 61


It is March, and my February calendar is still up on my fridge. And to be honest, this picture was taken a day late (gasp!) I've been so tired and just not with it lately!!

Day 60

A Sweet Note from Grandma

My grandma, who normally lives in our downstairs apartment, has been living with my aunt and uncle in Virginia this winter to escape all this snow. She is returning this weekend, and I am excited to see her! This note is from her.
