Almost caught up!

I am finally almost caught up with my grading. Teaching two on-line classes requires quite a bit of grading and if I get behind it takes a bit to catch up. I am nearly there. Now, I just need to finish my paperwork to get our taxes done. I put it off for much too long this time.

Thanks for the kid words when I was down last week. I am moving on. I have to see that person tomorrow but I have a plan to just do my job, get in, get out and schedule for next time. There are lots more clients who appreciate the work I do for them and I just need to focus my time and energy on them and not worry about this one.

My Sweet Valentine

Yesterday we picked up Aaron's valentine photos from Belly Buttons on our way to NWA to do some shopping. I think Calotype captures his personality perfectly. If you are any where close to the southwest corner of Missouri, check out Calotype and Belly Buttons. We found a cute outfit for Aaron when we were there for the Valentine photographs. I hope it stays cool for a while so he can wear all of his clothes!
We went to Fayetteville and ate a AQ Chicken. Aaron entertained the other diners with his singing in the booth and then making a mess on the window. We also stopped in Rogers to shop and drop off discount coupons for Longaberger and Uppercase Living for the Just Between Friends consignment sale. If you are one of the first 500 at the sale, you can get a discount from us.
We didn't find much on Friday. Aaron got a Thomas DVD, but we didn't find anything else on our list, maybe next time.
We worked on Aaron's room this evening. He finally has curtains and I hope we will have everything in place soon. I'll post some photos soon. I think he is enjoying his big boy bed now.

One of those days

Its been one of those days. I have a theory about stray dogs and it has proved correct again. My theory is not to bring home stray dogs (people) because they either bite you or pee on the rug. I picked up a stray dog that I felt compelled to work with through work..... I knew the person from other situations and I had an opening. Never again. I feel betrayed and I really am considering dropping this person from my work load. The person is no longer a friend.

Yea!!!! - and please continue to pray for friend

My friend Kim posted on her Blog (A Blissful Heart) that they received a call today about 2 children they will soon adopt. A 5 year-old girl and a 2-3 year old boy. They are waiting the official notice which can take a few weeks. Please keep them in your prayers. They have been waiting a long time to get this news.

My other friend it still waiting for news on her brain tumor. She will hopefully find out on Thursday. She is in good spirits. Please continue to pray for her and her family.


I am on the road this week. I am in Jefferson City for a meeting for work. I work for the University of Missouri (did you see last night's game?) but I work from my home almost 5 hours away. Every so often, we all get together for a meeting. The good thing is seeing my co-workers (it's lonely working from home and not having a co-worker to grouch to) and I get to go to the outlet mall in Osage Beach. I stopped today and found a few deals but the prices should be lower on Thursday on my way home because of President's Day weekend.
I am comfy in my hotel room keeping an eye on the Biggest Loser and the tornado watch...thank goodness I am on the first floor......and trying to get motivated to do some grading for the on-line classes I am teaching this semester.
