We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

Is it Friday yet?

You ever have one of those days where you can't find stuff you just had a second ago? I lost my keys for 40 minutes today before I found them on the computer cart in another teacher's room, under bundles of wound up cords. I'm not that old, but I'm tellin' ya, some of the noodles up there are maybe a little overcooked this week. The best was when I walked up the stairs to our house, keys in hand, and half way up, aimed and pressed the "car unlock" button in an attempt to unlock the front door. I had a good laugh at myself. :) haha

Cell phone woes

When little angel children do devilish things, where does it leave them? Oh, probably in my school somewhere. Yeah, can't find my cell phone, still. Luckily, the day it was lost, a little first grader put it in the crusty ol lost-and-found bucket. Did I fail to mention that moldy sandwiches, lost underwear and musty-smelling clothing articles also lurk there?? But I hope some kid at least figures out how to use it, or sell it on eBay :) haha

Yay for Spring Break~!!

A whole week off of school feels like heaven. Sleep in every day, throw football with Jared outside, enjoy the sunshine, maybe even catch a BYU baseball game. That is- unless winter decides to come back on Saturday. I dream about school every night, lots going on in that head to work through, I guess! It is such a huge part of my life, and I think about it all the time.

I must say, even though it's Spring Break, there's something amazingly wonderful about cleaning out every corner of the house until it feels to clean, that I actually enjoy sitting and looking at how organized and clean it is.

I went to IKEA with Michelle & Nenna this week - just to look of course - as decreed by the husbands. I was overtaken with this amazing bookshelf system that has doors on it... to keep little hands out of trouble. (Later, right?) First gotta pay off the car, then see what happens after moving out of our apartment this summer. So excited to reorganize a new one, and save up for organizing boxes, etc.

Anyone need an organizer? It's a weird gift I have. I can get a whole house organized within hours. It's sick, I know, but actually fun for me :) Can't wait for summer break at the pool!
