Thursday Thoughts


I have 4 more weeks of school left.  Seriously?!? This school year just flew by!  I guess that is a good thing.  I was in the staff bathroom today and someone posted on our little white message board that there are 27 days of work left!  I took a second and thought, "I have enjoyed this school year and I am not quite ready for it to be over yet."  That was a new thought for me.  Before this year I was making paper chains to count down the school year and becoming more and more cynical as the days went on.  This year I am more at peace, and happy with my job.  Don't get me wrong, I am eager for those wonderful 2 months off in the summer with my baby boy, but I am a working mama and I love my job.

In other news, my husband has been chewing tobacco for a LONG time and I am SO grossed out by this.  So much so that it was hard to want to hold hands or snuggle let alone kiss him.  So I made a deal.  I asked Jason why he chews and won't give it up and he said point blank that it is the one thing in the world that he really just enjoys aside from his family.  So then I said if I let him get the motorcycle he has been dreaming about would he be wiling to quit?  He agreed so fast and quit that night!  He hasn't picked up a can of chew in almost 3 weeks and has even admitted that he feels better.  So last night we went and purchased a gently used little Harley Davidson Sportster.  It is a good starter bike and we got a hell of a deal on it!  To top it off, our payment is only $60.00 a month which is exactly how much Jason was spending on chew.  (Yeah I know the man was trying to die I think).  When I remember to take a picture, I will post it.  I am just thrilled that he has quit and we have a better chance of keeping him around for a LONG time!

I think my baby fever is subsiding a bit.  Probably because the "I'm Pregnant" posts all over facebook have also subsided for the time being.  I am so happy for my pregnant friends, but for a while there I thought I was losing my damn mind.  We are a happy little family of 3 with 2 dogs and a bike (at this point I think the bike is part of the family).  I thought tonight about purchasing one of those ovulation kits and then I decided that if God wants us to have another baby then we will have one in time, if not then we have the most precious amazing gift ever already and I sure can spoil him and smother him for the rest of his life. 

I had to throw this in...Eyan in his Daddy's boots!
Those are my thoughts! What are some of yours?
