I woke up in a rotten mood Christmas morning because that dumb story was etched in my subconscious so deep that I had not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 different dreams throughout the night! Every time I went back to bed after waking up (laughing at myself), I fell right back into the same dream sequence but a different story line. Blah. I just wanted to enjoy my evening. I would have willingly allowed for some great Edward/man-of-my-dreams dreams but not about wolves and vampires coming to destroy the people I love that resulted in a war in my classroom. I am just going to go to bed tonight hoping I dream about saffron rolls because thats all I did/made/thought about/ate all day.

I have to be honest, I was a little worried that the day would be a bust. I missed momma and daddy, I got some pretty bad news on birthday eve, and I didn't know what the school day had in store for me. Birthday greatness started off the day before with a beautiful delivery of flowers from Joshy. They were so gorgeous! Thank you son, you really don't even know what that did for me. Then I arrived at school on the day of all days - November 20 - and was showered with gifts from my students. That wasn't expected. Here is a candy poster one of my favorite students made for me:I got some very sweet cards, delicious candy, amazing renditions of happy birthday from screaming and off key teenagers, lunch from Janet, flowers from Heidi, balloons from Mom and Dad, Red Mango with my ladies, and kindness from my kids. All in a days work! The flowers and balloons continually being delivered to my room was a little embarassing but just the sweetest things ever. And my kids really were nice to me! They quieted down and sushed each other with "hey, be quiet now because its her birthday. its the only day we have to be quiet."
After school I met up with the fam for a birthday dinner at Spag Fag. I returned home to magic muffins (it was no longer too soon) from Leslie that I literally devoured. I had some friends come and eat cake and ice cream with me. I must thank Leslie, Alisha, Ashton, Chris, Lani, Heather, Jessica, Kyle, all of the brothers, Justin, Laura, Kyle, Chalet, Paul, and my VT for helping me celebrate the big 23! Big thanks to the fam for putting up with me for the last 23 years. You are all the best.

No not me folks, my MOMMA! My mother, Elizabeth, is the most amazing woman that has ever graced the human world. Today is her birthday and I want the entire world (because I know the entire world reads this blog) to know that I love her. She is pretty, kind, loving, patient, adorable, beautiful, magnanimous, awesome, smart, funny, precious, and my mom! I wish I could be with her today but she decided to go on a mission instead. I miss her everyday, all day. I love her with all my heart and soul and thats a lot because I have a really big heart people. My mom was born into this world to be a mom. And more importantly, she was born to be my mom. I love you momma. Thanks for being born and also for having me even when daddy wanted to be done having kids. I hope you enjoyed the "Happy Birthday" rendition from my 9th graders. LOVE YOU!
