Project 365

A picture a day for 365 days...a year's worth of fun!


No picture for today...recouping from Country Thunder while doing laundry, cleaning house and and washing dishes!! Life doesn't slow down just cuz I'm not home...geesh!


Monday at the diamond...Ryan in the dugout waiting for the game to start and my new job...keeping the books. Not sure how I scored that job but I will admit that I pay much more attention to the game now!! Both boys won tonight...these double headers are gonna be the death of me!!

Tuesday~103/365 My vice...85 cents of pure goodness each and every school day...44oz of the best thing on earth...Diet Cherry Coke...YUM!


I spent HOURS getting plans ready for a guest teacher for Thursday and Friday...I was summonsed for Jury Duty and didn't know whether I would be out or not...well it was NOT...all that time I spent planning...wasted!


Another double header...tonight Brendan was up against one of his good friends, Elijah. They have been friends for the past 7 years so it's always fun when we are up against one all, basketball and baseball! Sadly the Cards didn't bring home a win, but fought hard against the Rangers.


Friday was the last day of our AIMS testing (state wide standardized testing). Kinders don't take this test, but since one of our kinder classes is in the 3rd grade hall we doubled up so they wouldn't disturb the classes that were testing. Friday was my day to have the class...over 40 kinders in one room all day long...I learned (for about the millionth time!) that silence is golden!!


So when I started losing weight last summer, I didn't have a number that I wanted to lose in mind...I just wanted to be healthy and happy...and be able to wear 2 things that I haven't worn in probably over 10 goal was to wear shorts and a strappy sundress this summer. WELL...I have reached half of my goal!!! I wore my first pair of shorts today in years!! Tiff bought them for me for my birthday!! I was so excited (and a little self conscious!) and am excited to go strappy sundress shopping very soon!!! (for the record..I have lost over 60 lbs since last July!)

I am missin' your diary of a baseball mom posts. BUT I do understand that life sometimes doesn't allow for extra moments to blog.

You don't have a box or anything to sit in when you scorekeep? It's the best seat in the house!

40 kindergarteners in one room?! *Shudder* I'll bet you are glad that's over!

Enjoyed the recap of your week! Congratulations on wearing shorts and for the 60 lb weight loss AWESOME!!!

The Cyber Hermit said...

Go you! 60 pounds gone is FANTASTIC! Enjoy the shorts and I hope we get to see a picture of you in your strappy sundress when you get it.

The Bug said...

So where's the picture of you in your shorts? :) I know, you're waiting until you get the sundress instead...

Well my idea of a very hot place would be 40 kinders in one room - especially if I was in charge of them - yikes!

Lori: Teacher Turned Mommy said...

congrats on the weight loss... always a good goal to have. anytime you have more than 20 kindergartners in one room it's too many so I can't imagine having 2 classes in one room... yikes!

sara said...

I know those double headers are hard, but you WILL miss them one day!!

40 kindergartners in one class...yikes!!!

Foursons said...

Yay for shorts! Wear them w/pride girl, you look fantastic.

So all the planning for the sub didn't help you out any? Maybe you should plan a couple days off work so you can use all that hard work.

Look at all those runs you colored in. I hope they were for the right team! I don't keep the books, but I do pitch count and scoreboard frequently. I hate it.

Tiffany said...

40? WOW!!! You are a SainT!;) Congratulations on 60lbs...AND Diet Cherry Coke. I haven't had anything but Water in 3 months....:(

Mimi said...

Wow that's a lot of kinders in one place! Congratulations on your weigh loss!

Have a great week,

Good for you wearing shorts. Not for me. I will stick to capris. Not confident enough to wear a strappy dress either. Love the look though. Those are some cute shorts. Hanging out in the dugout is always fun :) You got your vice I got mine :) YUM to both.
Miss you!

Alicia said...

Wow! 60lbs.??? That is amazing!!! I'm so impressed!!!!

And 40 kinders in one room? I would have wanted to pull my hair!

Tiffany said...

I am so proud of you! You have done so well with your weight loss. Can't wait to see the pics of your new sundress (with you in it).

We had our first baseball practice Saturday, and another today. 7 year olds are hilarious in helmets.

And thanks for being my friend. :)


Way to go on the weight loss. I am pulling for you.

our kinders have to do the state testing, which is so unfair..making them read passages and answer questions w/ no help from the teacher.

and your efforts (sub plans) were not in vain. You had well planned out lessons to go back to. What makes me so dang mad is when I spend all that time prepping for a sub, and then they don't do a bloomin' thing I leave for them, and just let the kids play or watch movies all day. AARRGGH!!

and YAAY for shorts! I decided to put mine on matter how bad I look in them. The world will just have to suffer!
