Is it Halloween yet

Halloween is my favorite holiday. I know it isn't even summer yet, but I want it to be Halloween already!

(Technically I am wanting Springerween).

So here in Oklahoma we have had some storms and a little severe weather. Nothing too serious just yet, but we usually go through this until May or June. Then the heat wave will come. And FINALLY Halloween will be here before I know it!!!

My son has been having me edit his YouTube videos. My goal tonight is to learn how to make it seem like our cat is shooting lasers from his eyes at the dog for one video. Wish me luck!

I am excited I got my class schedule for this next semester. (More) learning, here I come!

Understood.


I found a really good resource about dyscalculia (a math learning disability) at understood.org  and I noticed they had an area for writing. My own son struggles with writing. He has the ideas in his head but it is painful for him to get them onto paper. I was able to listen to a student's story about her experiences with struggling with writing, and the part that really opened my eyes was taking the simulation test to see what it was like to write through my son's eyes. I failed it. I signed up to get free resources from them sent to my email and if you know a student struggling with math, reading, writing or even attention issues, I highly encourage you to check it out.

So much beauty

The weather here has been gorgeous! I was able to wear shorts today while doing my errands.

I saw this online and it is so sweet! "This man waits for his wife to get out of class everyday just so he can hold the door open for her. I offer every time and every time he says no that he would be glad to die holding the door open for her. So inspiring."


Isn't that just romantic?

So we got all moved into our new temporary location at the library. The first day we were open, we were super busy. There were so many returns! Do you know what has made me happiest? Seeing some of our "regulars" return. I just love it. 

Now I am back to my regular work schedule and busy enrolling in my grad school courses.
I tried this new candy from Brach's called Eggruptions. They are like giant jelly beans filled with jelly bean juice inside. I thought they were amazing!! I found them at Walgreens.


My son was not a fan of them, but they reminded me of candy fruit slices.

I finally finished binge-watching season 1 of Baskets and am caught up on season 2.

I am a HUGE fan of Christine Baskets. She is the best character on tv! Louie Anderson plays her so amazingly you think she is a real person!

My dream would be for FX to have a contest I would win where I could hang out with Christine Baskets for the day. We could go to Costco and eat all the samples. Then we would get our hair done while talking about raising sons who don't listen. She would give me the recipe to her Sugar Pie. And we would end the day at the casino buffet. And of course, I would scrapbook it all and send her a copy! 

After Christine and Chip, I have mad love for the character of Martha.

"But Chip, I don't think that's such a great idea...." Just watch a scene and you will understand.


Happy Friday, y'all! I will post my Friday Funnies later today!
