Pulled from a CNN Article....
YAY, it's Monday and I am excited about this Monday because it's Memorial Day weekend this weekend, which means a short work week following that. I decided to join a softball team. Actually I was asked to join because I've got mad SKILLZ, don't hate! In reality, I've played ball with a few of these women before, so I decided what the hell...I'll go back. My biggest concern is my knee, but I'll just watch what I'm doing and I know my limits. And the weather was gorgeous this Sunday, sunny, not a cloud in the sky, nice breeze, not blazingly hot, it was a perfect day for softball. I played right field and third base. Now people, third base, the HOT corner, is my HOME! I'm not afraid of the ball, I laugh in the face of line drives and while not perfect, I don't miss much. And when I got up to bat...2 doubles and an HR and let me tell you, nothing feels quite as good as that feeling of swining the bat, feeling the ball "smoosh" against the bat and watching it fly over centerfield to the fence. Softball players know what I mean about the "smoosh". No, our team didn't win, but we didn't get our asses kicked either. I'm okay with losing by one or two runs, but a slaughter chaps my hide. All in all it was a great day.
I was having a conversation about going back to teaching with a friend of mine, when the topic moved to that of being an Administrator and/or Principal/AP. Granted it’s not an easy job, but neither is teaching in general. However, there’s not too much to complain about , when your salary is 85K to 100K+ compared to that of oh…26K to 30K for a beginning classroom teacher.
I decided to do a little landscaping this weekend around the mailbox and took out what was once dead shrubs and replaced them with Pink Knockout Roses. Knockout Roses are perfect for the person who loves roses but needs or wants low maintenance. I love all roses and am more than capable of planting and growing them, but they all need different environments. Knockout Roses on the other hand, love 4-5 hours of full sun a day and well...if they can have afternoon shade, great, if not, these roses are perfectly fine with that. They are a hearty rose and bloom from Summer to Fall and that's a pretty long season for a rose.
Because I got told "blog something I'm sick of reading about the DAMN PANTS", I'll give you some photos because, well...I just don't have any words to put down. Actually that's not true, I have MANY words to put down, I just don't know where to start. So...in the interim...here's a look into my life. Enjoy.
Check this out...Judge leaves his pants at a Dry Cleaner, Dry Cleaner loses them, Dry Cleaner FINDS them one week later...Judge sues for 65 million dollars. ONE PAIR OF PANTS...which was found. I don't know about you, but I don't think there's a 65 million dollar pair of pants out there.
