this is my 1st time to post something for a blog party
hope you try out our recipe!!!
set your oven to the temp shown on the croissant can
I double the cooking time on the croissant can and I look at the dough too....if the dough is not browned I leave it in 5 more minutes... the very top of the roll should be crispy/crunchy brown... the hardest part to get baked is the inside middle part...when you cut it and you see it might still be doughy put it back in the oven for some more baking

My favorite picture from this weekend is Drew finding a snail and wishing it Good Morn'n.... too cute!!! he always makes me smile...even when he is being a toot. He is my whole heart (ok... there is room for Ken and my family too but he takes up 99.99999999999%) and I thank my lucky stars that he does!!! I love him more than words can express!!! when I laid in bed at night and cried myself to sleep because I was unable to have children, i never dreamed I would be so blessed with Drew. I would do it ALL again ( surgeries and heart aches and sleepless nights) knowing my road would lead me to Drew!!!

I've been really bad about keeping up with the blog... I don't know it could be the stress at work. This has truly been the WORST year ever. I have been teaching for 9 years now and this year tops it all. It is not just my class either (which by the way i do have some really great kids)... my working environment isn't exactly all roses. It has been a MESS I am ready for a new year!!!! Summer can't come fast enough!!!!! Here are some lessons I have learned this year
1~ no more purchasing fund raiser items because you'll get accused of not paying even though you did and it was in front of 2 other teachers
2~ kids can wear what they want I DON'T CARE because when it's cold outside you can wear shorts and a t-shirt because I don't want a letter complaining I sent you in
3~ don't send emails out even if it is a CUTE picture of Drew wishing the faculty and staff Happy Valentine's Day because someone will turn you in to district office and you'll get a write up in your permenent record... note to self ... remember to write a thank you note to that person because I now know what I can and can't send out OH WAIT... they were annonymous (grow some balls)
4~ be sure to watch your back because someone has a knife and doesn't want you to take a position that you are VERY qualified for and they will do anything to keep you from it...refer to #3
5~ make sure your resume is OVER THE TOP because you want to make sure you get that interview for the JOB you really want and that you are VERY qualified for BUT wait #3 and #4 are on the committee to decide if you get an interview so JUST FORGET IT!!!
6~ even if your undergrad is PRE VET MEDICINE for large animals and you have over 24 hours of other sciences and were short 12 hours to minor in chemistry you still won't have enough science experience than 11 others that applied and got an interview...refer to #5
7~ don't forget you need a masters degree for that job... I DO.... BUT wait refer to #5
8~ when a student tells you they hate you DO NOT tell them there is a club for that on campus and they should join it because they will look for it
9~ when showing artic videos to your class be sure to preview it to the end because the walrus is the the gassious mammal on earth and it FARTS really loud and you will have to hear farting walrus noises ALL DAY!!!!
10~ oh and the kids can come to school without brushing teeth, putting on deo, taking a bath, and wearing soiled clothes because when you send them to the clinic discreetly and secretly GUESS what you'll get another angry complaint
10~ when you have a big BACKSTABBING KNIFE sticking out of your back.... your REAL friends and family will ALWAYS be there to help you out!!! and when you think it just can't get any worse there is always choir practice to make you feel better!!!!
here are a few things that have helped me stay out of the mental institute this year!!! SUMMER CAN'T GET HERE FAST ENOUGH!!!
