TOY & Resolutions

Well, I guess faith and bribery paid off. It was announced yesterday that I am Holub's 08-09 Teacher of the Year. There had to be a run-off and then another vote as the first one was subious. Pat Brown (principal) actually used the words "ballot box was stuffed". Especially since my good friend and team mate whom I was running against the same color as Pat is. If it had been up to her and she could have gotten away with out the second vote she would have done it. Oh well, got my up front parking spot for a whole year. Of course, I almost when out the other way today to my usual parking spot.

Well tomorrow is the 31st and I have not revealed my resolutions. I hate resolutions, "be it resolved", isn't that a cleaning product? Well here goes, and actually I've already touched on each of them in some manner:

Start working out
Clean up crop room
Keep house organized
Work at school not at home
Get finances back in order

Only 11 months to go....

Love to all,

Up for teacher of the year at school, AGAIN. Always the bridesmaid, kind of like 27 dresses, which if you haven't seen is cute. All women nominated this year. I was really surprised at the people who said they nominated me. Four out of five of my team has been nominated (must say something about the team), and the 5th person would have been nominated but he was Teacher of the Year this last year. I look at what everyone has written about themselves and see thesis' and then there's mine. I may not be impressive on paper but I'm fucking awesome in person. I would be lying if I said I didn't want this, and I don't know why it's so important to me this year, but it is. Pieces of me may have to be picked up on Friday after the news or I'll be feeling no pain because I won. It's really a popularity/color contest in my school and I've never been in the "popoular" crowd and I'm not sure if I'm the right color of tea. But Flossie shows up everyonce in a while, for those of you who don't know Flossie she's might alter ego who just happens to also be an angry black woman, at least that's what I was told. My kids and I are having fun with it though, they wanted to make posters for me which of course they can't. However, my campaign slogan is "Vote Looney, keep the crazies in control!"

Love you all,
Keep your fingers and toes crossed.
