Happy whatever day it is! 🙂
On Sunday, Steve and I went to the Angels game with our friends, Steve and Sheri which, by the way, leads to a lot of my Steve and your Steve conversations, but that’s neither here nor there.
Sheri was my very first teaching partner ever and I always say she taught me everything I know because she did. Sheri had been teaching first grade for a few years before me so, as a new teacher, I pretty much worshipped her.
We planned together every Thursday and I would make Sheri walk me step by step through every lesson. And I would say things like so if this is supposed to last about twenty minutes, what do I do at 9:46?
We had a connecting door which saved my life my first year. In the beginning, we closed it, but soon after, we just left it open.
Mainly because I opened it constantly to say things like okay, so we finished that phonics lesson, now what should I do?
And she would suggest something like you could read a book . . .
And I would say great idea! and shut the door, only to open it half a second later and ask can I borrow a book?
Or I might open the door and say that math lesson went really quickly. What should I do now?
And she would say something like you could sing a song . . .
And I would say oh yes! Thank you! and shut the door, only to open it half a second later to ask do you know any songs?
So after a few dozen times of that,
we Sheri just decided it was better to keep the door open. And, instead of driving her crazy with all of my questions and neediness, I just made her my best friend. 🙂
Most importantly, Sheri was there for me on that infamous Halloween.
All of that is to say that even though Steve and I are Dodger fans, we absolutely love Steve and Sheri and said absolutely positively yes, we will go to an Angels game with you.
The Angels lost.
But I had Cracker Jacks and didn’t pay attention anyway. Sheri and I talked the whole time. 🙂
I told you to read this book. Did you?
Because now I’ve seen the movie TWICE.
I saw it on Tuesday with my friend, Kristy. We met at Starbucks and had time to talk and talk, and then we saw the movie. We laughed and we cried.
It is SO good and I love the actors, and the girl is the Dragon Queen from Game of Thrones, but you would never know it – it’s crazy!
I saw it again on Friday with Kerry and my niece, Madison.
We also laughed and we also cried, even though I told myself there was no reason to cry, I’d already cried over it once, and I cried when I read the book so why would I need to cry again? But telling myself all that did nothing.
Even if you haven’t read the book, GO SEE THE MOVIE.
I’m telling you.
We went to my older sister’s house on Thursday for dinner. We had tacos and chips and salsa and guacamole . . . and just lots of good family time.
I LOVE summer nights when you don’t have to worry about work the next day or packing a lunch for the next day or setting an alarm clock for the next day . . .
Pretty much all I worry about is when I’m going to Target. 🙂
My parents live by a lake and the geese are EVERYWHERE.
We had to stop and wait for them to cross the street.
There were BABIES that had already crossed before I could grab my phone. BABY GEESE. They were all fluffy and small and so adorable!!
The only problem with all the geese is all the poop.
And it’s EVERYWHERE.
My nieces and nephews have practically grown up saying look out for goose poop! and check your shoes!
Every family has some kind of saying, right?
A waitress took this picture so don’t blame me for the poor quality. 😉
My parents celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary last night and so we crashed their dinner at the Cheesecake Factory.
We also split them up and did not allow them to sit near each other because, well, overkill. I mean, 49 years is a long time, don’t ya know so they needed a bit of a break.
The food was yummy and delicious and we shared salted caramel cheesecake for dessert.
And whether you’re celebrating 49 years of marriage, a birthday, a graduation, summer, washing your hair, putting on real clothes, or just simply getting the lid off the peanut butter jar, salted caramel cheesecake is the way to go.
And that about does it for my week!
So how was your week?!

i know what you mean about the geese! We also have turkeys who stop all the traffic and then take forever to cross the street! Wow – 49 years – what an accomplishment!
