Oh wow, I am just so worn out I feel like it should be Friday!!!

I'm loving that this weekend is a three day weekend, and that I am heading back up to the Black Hills to see Mr. Muir

I'm loving that I am slowly starting to feel like I am gaining my feet in teaching. I finally am going to have maybe some time to myself tonight!!!

I'm loving "The Office" mainly the older episodes. I've always loved it, but it's my current phase right now..

I'm loving that my dad surprised me while I was teaching today!!!! I screamed!

and lastly I'm LOVING this song by Mumford and Son's ....OBSESSED

I hope you had a great day!

ah ha moment!

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

So I am doing a late post today. I was flat out exhausted this morning, so here I am...

I hope everyone's day went great.
Mine wasn't so bad, even though I came home and M had an accident...Let me say this..not having a washer and dryer and trying to hand wash bedding...not on the top favorites to do...

Anyways...while I went away this weekend I had an "ah ha" moment...
Do you get those??

Here's mine:
I finally started to realize where I might want to end up in my life.
As I was driving toward Spearfish, and neared the b-e-a-utiful black hills, I felt at home.
I got the feeling I get when we all go home to Laramie for every holiday...

As I sat at the dog park and had a bagel and a raspberry mocha...I decided that it's time to act on it.
I know that I have a job and that is GREAT, but at least I feel like I somewhat know what I want!!

So in ending the Tuesday..what are your "ah ha" moments?

Good morning!!!

I first want to say I hope you all have a great week! 
I had a great weekend, but now am back to the grind.

I know I can't share much just because it would be unprofessional, but lets just say last week wasn't the way I wanted my first week of teaching to go. The students were great and everything, just some situations were out of my hands, and made it a tough week.

so hence the quote above.

I am going to try to blog every morning so I can get into a routine! 
So now I leave you with some quote!!

Meet 1st year teacher...Ms. Kae aka ME...

Help...from you sweet blog friends...

Hello to all my sweet blog friends. I need YOUR help.
I am starting my first teaching job. I am a bit overwhelmed to say the least. I have been in inservice all last week, along with 2 a day practices for volleyball.

Now here is where you come in. 
I am honestly feeling depressed about my weight. 
Everyone looks at me when I say this and says I am crazy, but here is the deal. I have never weighed over 111 pounds in my life tell this past year. 
I am now at 123 pounds.
I can't fit into clothes I wore last year, and in general it is seriously starting to affect my attitude and demeanor about myself. I don't feel good, and I am constantly self conscious.
I am considering some help with products, but once again right now I can't do it until I get my first pay check. we go..I need your help. How do I get motivated. How do I lose this weight that has become not only physical but mental?

I want to work out, but I get depressed because I am so out of shape and don't see results do I stay motivated? (these sound like common sense questions) but maybe with your inspiring words it will keep me going! So how do I juggle being a new teacher, coach, mommy to Milli, and still lose weight????

I am SOOOOOOO OPEN to any of your suggestions or ideas! 
Thank you for letting me vent. Some of that was not easy for me to admit or actually say out loud.

I truly would love your help....
I want to start to feel good again..

Happy Birthday Grandma...

Hello everyone! 
I hope you all had a great weekend...

Today would have been my Grandma's 86th birthday.

So my blog today is dedicated to my sweet Grandma..
There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss her, or have something I want to share with her.
She helped raise me, and I learned so much from her.

She was such a phenomenal woman, and words really truly can't describe how great she was!!!
love you grandma.

Happy Birthday.

I'm alive...barely! HA!

Hello everyone!
Well let me tell you that was a week...I mean a week...

I didn't get to move until Friday, and then had a wedding in another town Saturday and then moved the rest of my stuff Sunday.....This is basically what I felt/looked like.

Today volleyball conditioning started. I am the Freshman Volleyball coach. This went well. The girls are a little out of shape, but they were trying hard!!!
(I thought this photo was cute)

The other parts of my day today were ridiculous to say the least.
I basically found out that my landlord is a "slumlord"
Nothing is fixed, my dad came and fixed a ton of things and I am still cleaning so I can even put things away.
Today the cable/internet guy came and there were wasp nests everywhere. I had to help him and buy him wasp spray so he could finish.
There are a couple other things, so I am just a tad bit peeved! 
Thank GOD for Milli!!!! She is my buddy!

So to finish up I thought I would share a couple photos of the wedding this past weekend!
And pics of the apartment to come once it is clean!!!

So glad to be back online blogging!
