Awards and Issues - ahh Wednesday!

I have quite a few issues today! My daughter decided to get up at 5:30am this morning. So not only could I not get my early am workout in, but I am super tired. This is resulting in a very cranky mommy! My workout clothes are on but will I get possession of my tv so I can do my workout? Better question is do I feel like getting up out of this chair to do it? My scale tells me yes!

As it is apparently Issue Wednesday, I tried to join the Newbie Blog Hop but I think I messed up somewhere. I managed to include the link for my page but forgot to include my q and a. So here it is:

1. what state you are in: I was born in New York, but currently living in Nevada
2. your current teaching position: third grade

3. your teaching experience: 12 years - 9 in 2nd grade and 3 in 3rd grade

4. when you started blogging: July of this year

5. share a blogging tip / blogging resource: I don't have one since I just started blogging at the beginning of this month. I am still learning! :)

Thank you to Janis at

7 Random Facts About Myself
1. I have a think for vampires. I have read the whole Twilight Saga and all of the Vampire Academy books. I love watching Vampire Diaries. Oddly enough - I am Team Jacob. Weird huh?
2. I'm an old t.v. show junkie. My favorite show of all time is I Love Lucy. Every week day I watch Family Affair and My Three Sons. I also like to watch Rhoda, The Dick Van Dyke Show, and The Mary Tyler Moore show.
3. I am lactose intolerant. I can tolerate pizza in moderation, which is weird but anything else makes me sick. If you look in my fridge you will find Silk (soy milk), which isn't really bad. I also have soy ice cream if I have a craving for it.
4. I love country music!
5. I just started running. I am trying desperately to lose weight and wanted to add something else to my workouts. I started the Couch to 5K and have come a long way. I am still not ready for a marathon, though.
6. I am addicted to chocolate chip cookies.
7. If I were to ever stop teaching, I would want to be a country singer. :)

Check out these awesome blogs!
