Well, in the interest of being completely open and honest with you, I have to tell you that Saturday was a repeat of Friday.

It was an accident.

I didn't mean to stay in pjs all day again.  Really.


We were going to go to church, but then the hubby's aunt couldn't make it so we decided to go to the Sunday service.

The other reason for another pj day is that the husband got sick.

We have both been fighting something, but I won.  This is because I no longer have the delicate condition that I used to have when I first started teaching.  Now I have a mighty immune system and the common cold just can't hold a candle to me.  My husband, on the other hand . . . well, he's just a big ole baby.  

Ah-choo.  Ah-choo.  Ah-choo.  Ah-choo.  Ah-choo.


Seriously - I'm not kidding.  I think my record is four sneezes in a row, but I'm like most people and normally just sneeze the obligatory twice-in-a-row.  My hubby - notsomuch.  His record is like FOURTEEN IN-A-ROW.  

We decided early on yesterday that I could stop saying bless you.  I mean, I really would rather not waste my words.  So I said a "blanket bless you" and then I just ignored him for the rest of the day.  Minus the few times that his sneezes catapulted me off the couch.

Oh, AND he used that medicinal magic rub on his chest or his nostrils or his windpipe - I don't know, but my house no longer smells like Caramel Apple Scentsy, Apple Cinnamon Air Wick, and Dog.  It smells like some medicinal magic rub that stinks to high heaven.  And Dog.

I am going to have a bad case of the Sunday Blues tonight.  Having a week off will do that to a girl.  It will all be fine once I  shoo the kids off at 3pm  open that door in the morning.  I just know it.  Hello.  I'm Positive Polly.

Not to mention, I'm going to do some Cyber Monday shopping.  I've got my eye on new pjs and books and chocolate.  And a bunch of amazing TpT products, as well.

Oh . . . well . . . I don't think that was sneaky enough.

You caught me.  I'm gearing up for a commercial.  


My kiosk is on sale!  But continuing in the whole "honest and open" thing, I have to let you know that I don't have any themed items for Christmas or winter.  I don't know why I don't.

Oh, wait.  Yes, I do.

We're supposed to  I generally  Sometimes I  We stick to the mandated curriculum where I teach.

But just in case you're looking for things IN GENERAL, here are some things I've got on sale.  (Everything is on sale, though.)

And my newest pack:

Okay, okay, you can stop fast forwarding now.  :)  The commercial is over.

Here is a freebie from the new Rhyming Pack.  It's one of the printables.  Just click on the pic to download it for yourself.

Okay, I'm off to church.  I may have to sit by myself because I don't want to sit next to that annoying guy who keeps blowing his nose.


  1. I'm thinking I need some of your packs!!! (love the freebie, too!)

    I'm geeked about this sale thing tomorrow. . can't wait, but hope that I find time to actually do it. I have 2 of your things above on my wish list. . . I own one of your other ones. . .

We don't have any of that! But it is coooooolllllddd here!

  4. I have been sneezing for a week. My first graders began "blessing" me, but I asked them to not bless me after every sneeze. Why? they asked. I told them since I sneeze 10-15 times when I get started, they could lose precious time working and learning if they continue to say "bless you" after each sneeze. Most of them still don't get it.

  5. Ha! My husband says after 2 sneezes, I get cut off from his "bless yous." I am a 3-4x sneezer too. Love the Nouns, Verbs and Adjectives set!

  6. A couple things:

    1. I don't know you, but my team of first grade teachers talks about you like you're one of our friends.

    2. I'm a second year teacher and haven't gotten that immune system yet. I've been sick 3 weeks already and it won't go away.

    3. I love the idea of your fluency pack, but I don't know how to start it. Maybe next year. Is it a lot of extra work? I just give the same five sight words to all the kids, and I think some of the parents are getting bored with it and want more of a challenge.

    4. I'm jealous you got the whole week off, and I'm very sad about going back tomorrow. I think I need one more day off to adjust to the idea (and a 4 day week would be nice)

    5. If you ever come to Virginia, let me know! I always can use another friend!


  7. Your parts of speech and rhyming words activities are in my cart! Hope the hubby feels better soon.

  8. I can't wait to check out your store!!! There are so many goodies I think I need! Hope you have a great week!!! I am totally counting down the days until winter break! ;)

  9. Well, I'll say THANK YOU for not having holiday-themed stuff in your store. :) We're not allowed to use anything Christmas-related (or other religious-holiday-related) and so all those "super cute" Santa and reindeer sets are automatically off limits to me. Your products are useful year-round by everyone -- perfect! Thank you! :)

    Hope you stay healthy . . . nothing like getting The Cold after declaring yourself immune . . . ;) (Not that I did that last year or anything!)

  10. If you still have energy left after the first day back crazy times, could you post what TPT items you bought? I always get distracted by too many choices (not that it's a bad thing...). :-)

  11. You are really cute. Do you know that? I mean really really really cute! And funny. By the way if you happen to sneeze today, I say to you..."blanket bless you".
