Happy New Year & The Winner Is...

I can't believe it is 2012!  Happy New Year to all of you.  Hubs and I went out to a wonderful dinner with his sister and her husband.  Then we went to a comedy show to benefit the local zoo.  We laughed ourselves senseless!  Best of all, we were settled all snug in our jammies by the time we started to hear fireworks go off.  We haven't ventured out on New Year's Eve in years, so it was fun.

So on to the giveaway. 

I used the random number generator thingie-ma-jobbie, but am not tech savvy enough to figure out how to get an image of it on here.  So trust me, the winner was...



a new blogger...

Latricia, leave me a comment with your email address and I'll get in touch with you to make arrangements for you to get your prizes.

If you are sad you didn't win (and I know you are), there seem to be a gazillion other giveaways going on out there.  Here is one to go check out.

Kelley over at Buggy for Second Grade is having a giveaway in honor of reaching 100 followers.  She is giving away a  beautiful wreath that would look absolutely wonderful in my classroom, so I seriously hope I win.  And even though I really want this crafty creation, I still think you should go over and enter, too.

I broke down and told the Mr. about wanting to get rid of the new-to-me desk he set up for me in August.  I told him while he was driving.  That way I figured he'd be a little distracted.  I wish I'd had a camera.  First I got a look that said "I misunderstood that."  Then, instantly, it changed to a look of shock that could only be interpreted as  "WTH? The desk I just..."  And then a look of "HA!  You had me for a minute!" Finally, it became the one of resignation "Oh, do what you want.  Why am I surprised?"

Mind you this all took a mere three seconds before he turned back to the road.

But, being the wonderful hubs that he is, he told me to do what I wanted and thought was best for my room, class, and me.  And he meant it!

Now, how do I get him to help me move it out on Monday (his day off, too) without killing me?

Well, I've got a day to contemplate that.  Strategy, that's what it's all about.


  1. Too funny! This happens a lot in our family. My husband and kids know just to smile, nod, and dig in.

    I found your blog a couple of weeks ago and love it. Thanks for the ideas and the fun stories.

    Happy New Year!

  2. We definitely have to find the "right time" to talk to the hubby - and then it all works out!! ;)
