the price of beauty

So, here's one photo from our little shoot. I'll have to admit while I love the photos from Paige Newton Photography. I don't like me in them. This happens to me every fall/winter. My hair becomes blan and my skin becomes scary white and it just doesn't look good on me (not to mention my exceptionally round face). You may be thinking this photo doesn't reveal that, but that's because I attempted to choose the only one that I didn't look that way in. But seriously, I'm kind of concerned about the fact that I don't like the way I look 6 months out of the year (particularly the non-summer months where I turn white and pastey.) I'm like, should I dye my hair red? Will this make me look beautifully creamy white (like all the hot red heads on television) instead of pastey pale?? Probably not, but the thought has crossed my own mind.

the crazy life

I told Jake yesterday. "I know I'm good at my job. The students like me and I'm a natural teacher, BUT, but the kids drive me nuts". "Do you think all teachers feel this way?" He said, " Babe I think that's something you should find out cause you have like 25 years left to go." I said, "It seems that way from the way they talk in the lunchroom, but does that mean all teachers are partially nuts for their entire career?"
So, here's to one month down and 25 crazy years left to go!

Thoughts People???

Not that you wanted my schedule, but here it is!

If I'm feeling zealous and extra prepared
5:30 am Get up and go to yoga. Get ready there.

If I'm feeling lazy and don't prepare the night before
6:20 Alarm goes off. Press snooze twice.
6:40 Now I get up. Shower and get ready.

7:30 Leave for school. Wishing I had time to stop for coffee, but never having time.
7:45 Arrive at school. Light my pumpkin spice candle. Start making copies

9:05 School starts. Pick up children and have FREE breakfast in the classroom. Yah, I said free breakfast, pays to be poor. :)

9:15 Clean up from breakfast
9:20- 3:35 One big blur called teaching where I'm not always sure what happens. J/K! :)

5:30 Finally leave school (sometimes it's later) after I've done who knows what to prepare for the next day.

6:00 Arrive home and sit on the couch. Not moving, watching TV and hopefully reading my Bible (if I'm good). I'm in Judges already, but I'm supposed to be in 1 Kings to finish by January. Woops! Better not skip anymore.

10:00 Get ready for bed. You might be thinking from 6-10 I didn't move off the couch and you're right I probably didn't. :)

OK I'm just kidding again, I probably helped Jake make dinner or maybe even hung with friends. However, I cannot imagine coming home to children after being drained all day by the kids at school. Seriously. So, this is why I haven't blogged because if it's not some internet thing I can access from my phone. I just don't get on the computer for pleasure as much, but soon I will find balance or soon I might just have to start drinking coffee.
With Love!
