4. jackson and our fabulous neighbor mike put in some new the girls can finally enjoy some fresh air in their room

5. big plans to FINALLY finish the kitchen...yay!

6. ashlyn got into some of my lace, and turned it into a "dress"...(you really have to see the pics to appreciate this one!)

i'm working on...


lately, i have been very frustrated, unhappy, and upset...
with everything
...and everyone

i've taken a lot of time to think about those things...about everything that i'm unhappy about, and i've come to a realization...

i can't change what is bothering me, so i have to work on myself...i have to change ME.

so, i've been trying to keep my temper under control,
trying to stay calm,
trying not raise my voice or argue with jackson, the girls, or my students,
i'm letting whatever my principal does/says roll of my back...

i'm dabbling more in my crafts, and that's making me a happy camper
i even bought myself some things...things i actually need! a few new tops, new purse, new shoes

i'm working on myself...

i'm trying to make a better me!
