New School Year...New Position

I have some exciting news that is now official and can be announced...I am moving from being a literacy coach to being a reading specialist in a new district!  I'm excited, nervous, and probably a little bit in over my head!

I'm so stinken' happy!

Please take a minute to admire my lovely new blog design!  I am just in love!  Many thanks to Kassie at Designs by Kassie.  You can find her here:  http://designsbykassie.blogspot.com/  I had no idea that I would be as picky as I was and Kassie was extremely patient with me.  Plus, I really don't know or understand all of the blogging lingo - it's definitely like learning a second language!  Ahhhh...I'm just going to sit back and admire...Again, THANK YOU, KASSIE!

New Look Coming Soon!

I heard some great advice from my friend Kasey the other day.  Her significant other is a fitness guru.  He owns his own training center and is doing quite well.  The other day we were talking about joining an athletic club and Kasey repeated something her athletic friend said.  She said that he recently raised his monthly prices.  He has found that by doing this the customers have improved their attendance.  The idea is that people are more willing to put in the effort if it's costing them more money.  Makes sense, right?  So, I've been thinking about this and how it relates to me and this blog.  Let's be honest...this blog is ugly.  I don't want to come here...I'm not drawn here....I don't want to spend a lot of time here.  SOOOOO, I made a huge investment in myself - No, I did not join an athletic club.  Let's not get crazy here.  What I did do is I contacted Kassie at Designs by Kassie to have her design my blog.  I still can't believe I did this.  I usually don't pay for these types of things because I figure that I can do it and I need to save my pennies where I can.  Anyway, she is working on it and already sent me a proof.  Wow.  I am so impressed...it's going to be beautiful!  Here's what I'm hoping will now happen...I will love this blog so much because it will be so cute that I wouldn't be able to stop myself from posting things.  This is going to be the world's best little blog with all the coolest things...no blog will even compare!!!  Aren't you proud to be here in the beginning when my ugly little blog was first born...it's going to be blooming into a beautiful butterfly...JUST WAIT!

Let's laugh!

Hello, All!

This is the first post of my new blog.  I tried blogging last summer, but just couldn't seem to find my niche. So, this time around I'm not going to search for a niche, instead I'm going to share cool things that are interesting to me at the time.  No rules, just fun.  Sound like a plan?  Of course, there will be a ton of educational and teaching things here, but also other goodies that I find along the way.  Here is a video that my mom sent me this morning...It's hard not to laugh.  Enjoy!
