Book Hog

There was a time when I bought books and movies then I found out about this thing called the library. . .

Now I am a book hog, no really I am. I want them all to myself and they aren't even mine! I realized that I could reserve all of my books and movies online for the library and that was a big mistake on their part.

My request list is llllllooooooonnnnnnnggggggg *wink*

I have actually had the computer tell me I can't request anymore! What?! How could this be?!

I am at the library so much now picking up my 'orders' that they look at me like
SHES BAAAACCCCCKKKKKK. But remember this is their fault not mine. They created this monster I have become: the book hog ;)

For those of you out there that are fellow book hogs, and you know who you are, I might have to start a book hog anonymous ha-ha just kidding.

The Glad Game

When I used to be really down my bff would make me play the glad game.
You have to name 3 things you are glad about.

Well I am so overwhelmed by the happenings in my life right now that I think I better play that game, Right Now!

1. I am glad I have an awesome healthy child.

2. I am glad that the laundry is almost done.

3. I am glad that we had some wine in the house to help calm my nerves.

I know its just 3 but I wanna add just one more:

4. I am glad that I have my friend back in my husband.

I feel a little better, still very overwhelmed, but a little better.

Homemade never tasted better!

I had to share this recipe with all of you. I made homemade mac & cheese for the first time and I have one question for myself, WHY haven't I made this before? There is a VERY good chance I will never make any other kind again :)

Here is the recipe:

Betty Crocker Macaroni and Cheese

2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni (7 ounces)
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cups milk
2 cups shredded or cubed Cheddar cheese (8 ounces)

1. Heat oven to 350ºF.
2. Cook macaroni as directed on package.
3. While macaroni is cooking, melt butter in 3-quart saucepan over low heat. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Cook over medium low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth and bubbly; remove from heat. Stir in milk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Stir in cheese. Cook, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted.
4. Drain macaroni. Gently stir macaroni into cheese sauce. Pour into ungreased 2-quart casserole. Bake uncovered 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly.

Enjoy ~Jessica

Sometimes Change takes some getting used to.

How do you get a child to act up and be completely out of the norm?

Take them out of a classroom that they LOVE and put them in a new one.

My daughter was doing AWESOME in her kindergarten class. She loved her teacher and met a little girl that I would be okay for her to call her 'best friend' and you know me I don't do that often. The last person I was okay with that was my sweet Timmy. (Heather, my BFF, her son)

So now she is in a new classroom with new kids. Her new teacher is a very nice woman. And I can see my daughter having a great year with her. It will just take some time for her to get used to her.

Her school sends home a notebook/agenda everyday that tells how your child has done.

This is an example of my child's for the past 2 weeks.

Monday (last week) : Gena pulled her pants down in the lunchroom today please talk to her.

(I was like WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is NOT my child! What is going on!

Tuesday (Last week): Gena punched a boy in the stomach today.
(WHAT IS GOING ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

the rest of the week :)

Today: Gena was screaming in the lunch room today. Please speak with her.

Okay so I have to say my kid is a stubborn, fly by the seat of her pants kind of girl.

BUT THIS IS NOT FUNNY! I finally found out what was going on. She thought if she was bad she could go back to her old class. When I told her otherwise. Tears sprang from her face :( I feel bad for her but I also know enough is enough! So pray for me cause I am trying to be a good mom, and a prayer that comes out of my mouth more than not:Jesus help me to be a good mom.

Just thought I would share. God Bless ~Jessica
