It's been a long day. Tomorrow the State Career Tech Director (like the big boss for my department), the mayor, our county Superintendent, the Project Manager for AIDT, the Executive Director of the Southwest Alabama Workforce Development Council, a Representative from the Department of Conservation, Law Enforcement & Recruiting, and the Career Coach for our area of the state will be here to visit our school and talk to our students in an assembly.

I have cleaned my room like I've never cleaned it before. Thankfully my students helped me during 4th block. They are my best class! I can ask them anything and they never give me gripe about it.

I'm honestly not sure how much better my classroom looks... But I tried.

This summer my room is supposed to be completely revamped. Painted, new chairs and tables for my computer workstations, and hopefully something done to the floor. I am going to take some before and after pictures because I am hoping there is going to be a MAJOR difference.

My neck and shoulders are SO tight. They have been all day... Maybe after tomorrow is over I can relax some...

Way too fast

I was laying on the bed next to Si as he was sleeping. Today we took him to the doctor for his 6 month check up and for his shots. He's been a little fussy this afternoon but that's to be expected.

I looked over at Jason and asked him, 

"Would you think I was crazy if I told you I wanted to have another baby?"

"No. I love kids. You know that Leigh," was his response. 

Maybe it's the latent pregnancy hormones or the antidepressant that's talking. I don't quite know.

But I do know this...

He is growing up way too fast...

Si turned six months old on monday! he has gotten so big... i honestly don't know how much he weighs but we will find out for sure next week when we take him to the doctor for his six-month checkup (which includes shots...)

he just started being able to sit up on his own! he's still a bit wobbly but he can stay up for extended periods of time without support. my sister says it will be no time before he's crawling...

it's been a busy past few weeks. janie's skating birthday party (which turned out fine even though i wanted to punch the owner of the rink in the throat to begin with) and the the womanless beauty pageant at the high school that i took pictures at (and then had to make them private because of the thousands of views they were getting on flickr... it was kinda freaking me out...) and the jwl mardi gras ball in town last weekend (again, more pictures).

i've got two weddings coming up that i'm going to photograph. they're small weddings (my favorite kind) so they won't stress me out too bad...

it's only wednesday and I am definitely looking forward to the weekend. actually, i'm looking forward to 3:05. thankfully that's only about 20 minutes away ;)
