Classroom Photos

Office Space is one of my favorite movies in existence. The problem is that I’m having a Milton moment.

Milton Stapler


See, last Thursday I popped into my new classroom to do some work and, of all the cool stuff I’ve bought, my favorite metal Swingline stapler went missing!

Have you seen me?

If you haven’t figured out that I’m a little quirky at this point, you don’t read my blog you do now! Being a strong Taurus, I’m very particular about stuff that belongs to me, especially quality stuff that I shelled out $20 for. I went back to my room today to decorate and it’s still nowhere to be found. Sad face. So what if there are 3 other standard ones in the room…

Aside from that, I started putting things on the walls.

I got one of those fun colorful lamps. Mood lighting. Why not?

There’s definitely not enough stuff on the walls. After looking at those last two photos, it came to me. The real thing that’s missing are those big banners like the ABC’s and number lines for the tops of the walls. Agree? Disagree? What else is missing?


The Book of Mormon

The anticipation all weekend was killing me! There’s nothing like experiencing a big musical for the first time. Before the show we went to a modern-style restaurant called Urbane.


I drank 3 specialty cocktails before the show. At least we walked from the restaurant to the venue.

We shared poutine. I’m starting to wonder if I’ll ever get sick of this stuff. I get it at any restaurant that offers it!

Before the show. We’re not allowed to take pictures during.

For those who may not know, The Book of Mormon is a musical that was created by the makers of South Park. It has won 9 Tony awards including best Musical.

Long story short, the show was hilarious and well worth seeing. This was its last night in Seattle.

Hot Zumba?

Today was another 90 degree day. After getting home from school we had reservations for racquetball but the AC is questionable so we cancelled. My dilemma was that I needed to do some kind of exercise and we had an 84 degree room. Mike suggested taking Loki for a walk but outside it’s 90 degrees. I chose 84 degrees for 20 minutes of Zumba. It’s tough to exercise in that kind of heat! Does that count as “hot Zumba”?


*What is my classroom missing? Help me out, I’m new in the elementary scene!

*Are you as in love with poutine as I am?
