We're goin' campin',
We're goin' campin',
We're going c-a-mpin'!

I CANNOT wait!I haven't been camping with my husband in two years! We used to go all the time. In the pre-camper days we roughed it in a tent. A really nice tent, but a tent none the less. Last summer I went camping all by myself. Well, I was with friends, but they have their own camper. Chaddy and I used to go camping and hiking at least twice a month. But, life seems to get in the way sometimes. We have decided to get back to our old way of life. A way of life that I have been so desperately missing for the past year. So, now you can see why I am so amped about this weekend. We are going to a state park in Arkansas. The place we love, Devil's Den State Park, is booked. We have never stayed at the place we're going, but we have hiked there.

It's my day off, but I got up at 8:00 to begin the pre-trip preparations. I cleaned the guest bedroom that has really just become the junk room. I cleaned the whole house. I even cleaned Chaddy's bathroom, and I never clean Chaddy's bathroom. Ewww... I have done load after load of laundry, ugh. I have swept, vacuumed, and scrubbed every surface in this place. Alyssa and one of her buddies are coming over to stay while we're gone. I love that I have someone who is so responsible and dependable to stay with the girls when we're gone. She's a great kid. I think that she enjoys getting to stay by herself some too. She's at that age...

I got a call from NEO today. I talked to one of the instructors about teaching an adjunct class several months ago. She called to tell me that she thinks that they'll need me in the fall. She has my resume, my transcripts, everything except an application. So, I need to run by on Monday and grab one. I should go today, but to be honest, I don't want to leave my house. I am excited that I could teach some though.

Did I mention that I mowed? Well, I did. I have the swollen eyes to prove it. **sneeze**

I just heard on MTV News that H&M just had the largest fashion show in NYC history. They set up a four story tent complex in Central Park. I totally love H&M! I always go there when I'm in the city. They have the best clothes and they are crazy cheap!

You're Not Going To Write About This On Your Little Internet Thing, Are You
My goodness...time does fly! I wonder if the weeks from mid-March to May go as quickly for the rest of the world as it does for teachers. It seems like we just had spring break and now we are getting ready for graduation. I'm glad that I don't have any students that I am panicking about. All my kiddos are either right where they should be or beyond.

I have had quite a week. I haven't sat down at the computer one time! So, here goes, a week in review.

I was going to do a day by day here, but it all ran together. It starts off on Thursday, April 7th.

Whoo-hoo! We are off on a camping trip. The plan was actually for Tanya to take her daughter and some of her friends until I invited myself along. 'Lyss ended up having a track meet on Friday and her buddies ended up not being able to go at all. So, that left me and Tanya going down on Thursday afternoon. Tanya's husband would meet us halfway with Alyssa on Friday afternoon. I have the greatest bartender book. My momma got it for me. I had planned to take it along and we were going to buy some ingredients and play around with the recipes, but I forgot my book. Tanya has what could possibly be the best Kindergarten parent! No offense Diva, but just listen to what she did. When we tell her what our plans had been and that I forgot my book she says (in a hushed voice), "I own a liquor store. I'll put some things together for you." We had no clue she owned a liquor store! OH MY GOSH! She came back that afternoon and left a basket in Tanya's camper. It had shot glasses, recipe guides, mixers, and booze. Then, as if that wasn't good enough, she wrapped it all up in cellophane and tied it with some pretty raffia. Aww...how sweet. So after our workout (hey, it was my weight day..I couldn't skip it) we headed down to Flint Creek. Um, how nice is it to set up a travel trailer instead of a pop up? Let me tell you, it's GREAT! I want a new camper so bad! Anyway we got everything set up and went into town for what is said to be "The Best Fajitas" in Siloam. I would have to agree. They were good. Then it was off to the casino. I didn't win crap. That seems to be an Indian Gaming theme with me. We did see signs that they gave free play on Fridays from 11-1. Guess where we went on Friday morning. You guessed it...the casino. I won! I know, crazy huh. I hit seven out of eight numbers on my favorite Keno game ever, Tsunami. My seventh number was the last ball so my winnings were multiplied by four. I won $20.00 and fuh-reaked out. I was only betting a nickel, so that was a big win for me. After our gambling fiasco we went to meet Mike with Alyssa. That evening we watched Napoleon Dynamite. Is there a funnier movie? I don't think so. I also have to worry about people who don't think it's funny. Do they have no sense of humor? "I think I'll build her a cake." Hilarity, I tell you. "Eat Tina, ya fat lard." I think I'll be quoting for weeks to come. On Saturday morning we needed something to do. We have taken our classes on a field trip to an animal safari and petting zoo that is only about ten miles from where we camp. We decided that we would go to the zoo. We stopped at the store to get bananas. It is very important to drape your car with bananas when you drive through the safari part. The monkeys will sit on the hood and eat them. It is very entertaining, I assure you. The rules clearly state that you must keep all windows up and stay in your vehicle. We threw caution to the wind and drove through the whole thing with the windows down. Correction. One window down. Alyssa did not want her window down. We were in a truck. Tanya was driving, I was in the middle, and Alyssa was in the passenger seat. Tanya had her window down and Alyssa was looking at the animals from a distance. At least she was until Tanya pointed out her window and told her to look. Alyssa had no idea that Tanya had rolled down her window. When Alyssa turned there was a very large emu with it's beak in the window. Alyssa screamed, the emu jumped, Alyssa elbowed my very tasty orange cream slush from Sonic and dumped it all over me. We fed emus, Texas long-horn, elk, antelope, deer, but no monkeys. There were no monkeys. When we got to the petting zoo part they told us that the kangaroo and goat cages were closed because it was mating season. I hated that because I totally dig the kangaroos. Last year I made my group of kids spend way more time in the kangaroo cage then they wanted to. This is the coolest place because you can get in the pens with the animals. I've gotten to hold baby monkeys and bears before. We finally found all the monkeys in a barn. I guess they hadn't put them in their outdoor cages yet. They barn had a narrow aisle to walk down. On both sides there was a fence and then about two feet back from that were the monkey cages. Every time I have been at this zoo the young chimp is spankin' his own little monkey. This, I am happy to report, was the first time that I have seen him doing something else! People were throwing food to him and the old man chimp that speaks sign language (I know, this place just keeps getting better and better, right!)but the food would bounce off the cage and land out of reach. The young chimp would grab as much as he could by sticking his fingers out of the cage, and then he would use a stick to "fish" for the rest. How smart! Well, here we are "animal do-gooders" and all and we are hating the fact that even with his stick he couldn't reach all of the yummy treats. So off we go to find him a longer stick. We couldn't find one anywhere. Alyssa found an aluminum rod. It was about 12 feet long. I maneuvered it down the narrow aisle and used it to push food closer to the chimps. He made kissing noises at me. I made them back. He started spankin' it. NO! I'm kidding! How gross would that have been! We stood there a little longer and watched people throw food. The food kept bouncing off the cage and out of reach. Tanya went back outside, got the rod, and started pushing the apples, celery, and carrots closer. When the young, very strong, chimp reached for an apple, Tanya was feeling very good about helping him out. The only problem was that he didn't reach for the apple. He grabbed the rod! Now, Alyssa and I found this quite funny. We were practically doubled over laughing. Tanya did not see the humor. She held onto that rod for dear life! That chimp pulled her to the ground and up against the fence. All the while she's shouting for help. Did the people walking through help her? No, they just walked on by. Did her daughter and best friend help? No, we were too busy laughing. Well, Alyssa finally figured out she better help. When I saw Alyssa get pulled to the ground, big strong as an ox Alyssa, I knew that I should quit laughing. We finally got the rod back. If the chimp would have gotten it he could have definitely hurt the other chimp, but it was long enough that he could have hurt people walking through too. I played tug-of-war with a strapping young male chimp. Seriously, I only know of two other people that can make that claim. We left after that. As we were walking to the truck, Tanya said, "You're not going to write about this on your little internet thing, are you." Uh, heck yeah! We hung out for awhile on Sunday and then came home.

Nothing exciting has happened this week at school, it's just been hectic. We are getting ready for graduation. I plan the program and do all of the invitations and programs. Next week I need to put together our video presentation.

I hope that you are having a good week. Later...

Today was the blood drive at the high school. Tanya and I were signed up to give during our planning hour. So, off we go at about 8:45 this morning. We get there and find out that the process has changed a little and there would be delays. We were the second and third to give. We had to read this book about donating blood and what "risky behaviors" can taint your blood. I have not traveled to any of the countries on the "list" in the past five years. I have not shared needles. Ever. I have never experimented with or used drugs of any kind. I do not have more than one sexual partner. With all that taken care of, I was off to my interview with the blood people. She looks me up on her little computer, asks me a couple of questions, and then pricks my finger. Guess what...they didn't want my blood. I have low iron. I was not surprised. The Red Cross turns me away about as often as they take me.

At 11:30 we had a joint birthday party in the clubhouse with Tanya's class. We each have a twin and today they turned six. Then, as if going to the book fair and having a birthday party complete with goody bag weren't enough, we went on a short field trip. We loaded up both kindergartens and pre-k and came to Miami for a show. The tribes that are based in our county always do really neat activities for the National Week of the Young Child. We used to have Stephen Fite, a children's musician, come for a concert. Last year the characters from the PBS television show Between the Lions came. This year we had a Native American ventriloquist. Seriously, how do you go from Between the Lions to a Native American ventriloquist. I was a little worried that the show may not compare to what we had in the past. I am happy to report that I was wrong. See, I will admit it. Anyway, Buddy Bigmountain was really great! The kids loved it. Every year when we come to these shows the man that introduces the act sings what he likes to call the "Beaver Song". And, every year, he calls me to the stage to sing it with him. I don't know if he even realizes that year after year he always calls on me. Today he commented as we were leaving, "There's the girl that knows the Beaver Song. I didn't even have to teach it to you." "Yeah, I get to sing the Beaver Song every year, " I said. I don't mind an audience though, so really, it's no big deal. I can even do the actions. I'm good. I know.

After school I was sooo tired, but I stayed and worked out amid all of the junior high kids. Now I'm home and doing my chores. I hate laundry! We are going to have some thunderstorms. I am looking forward to them. I don't want anything damaging, just something fun to listen to.

I hope that you had a good day.

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! Ugh! We sprung forward. I hate that! Chaddy and I went out to the hill on Sunday morning. There were some ATV people there. I shot a promo for the ATV event that's later this month. After that I came back to Miami. Mom picked me up and we went to Joplin to meet up with some people from a bike shop to ride. The bike shop is called Spokes and Spandex. Seriously. What an unfortunate name! Anyway, we pulled into the parking lot as they were riding down the street. By the time we unloaded they were gone. So that left me, Mom, and her friend Gail to blaze our own trail. Well, not really blaze a trail. We just had to choose our own route, I guess. So, here I am on a crazy busy street on a road bike for, like, the first time ever! I have a Giant mountain bike. I like my mountain bike. Mom said that I should borrow Gail's extra road bike though. So, borrowed I did. I'm sure that it would have been a tougher ride on my bike, but I had to get used to the road bike. You see, your posture is different on a road bike, changing gears is different, everything is different. And, here I am trying to get used to it all on a very busy street with no shoulder. I hate cars! You know about my driving issues. Anyway, what started as a twenty mile ride, ended up being a twelve mile ride. But we went up some crazy big hills. Mom says that they were nothing, but I thought they were steep! Mom and Gail ride Oklahoma Freewheel. It's a week long ride that crosses the state. This year it starts in Paris, TX. Last year my friend Tanya and her daughter Alyssa took Mom and Gail in their camper. This year I will go along, but I will not be riding. I know my limitations.

Last night Mom and I went to Wyandotte to pick up Chaddy and we went to eat at Montana Mikes. I have been craving catfish. The problem is that I don't want just any catfish, I want good catfish, which can be hard to find. I want crunchy breaded yummy catfish. I won't be getting catfish from Mikes again. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't good either. Then Chaddy and I came home and crashed. I am seriously wearing my very last pair of underwear. I have to do laundry tonight or go buy new underwear. How awful is that!

Today was our assembly at school. The kids did a really good job. I think it was great, but we'll wait and see what the Diva thought. It's hard to concentrate when a Diva is sitting right behind you!

Coach weighed me on his little scale thing today. The bad news is that I gained two pounds. The good news is that I lost four pounds of fat and my body fat percentage went down four percent. It's that whole "muscle weighs more than fat" thing. As absolutely crazy as this is going to make me sound, I'm going to say it anyway...I want to look like Jennifer Aniston. Not in a "MTV I Want a Famous Face" way, but I want a similar body. Um, HELLO, who doesn't want her body! We are the same height so theoretically if I could weigh the same I would sorta have a body like hers, right? I know, I know, this kinda makes me sound a little cuckoo. Oh well.

Tonight is Ladies Night! Whoo-hoo! I want to win some money, honey! We are going to meet up at the big fancy casino. From there we will drive to The Lucky Turtle for dinner and $5.00. Then it's back to the big fancy casino for our $10.00. I'll let you know how much money I won later tonight. I'm trying to have a really positive approach. I will win. I will win. I will win.

Back as promised
Here I am, back as promised. I know that you have just been glued to your monitors, hitting the refresh button every few minutes, anxiously awaiting my return! So, the first lawn mow of the season is now behind me. I started in our L shaped backyard. That part is no problem-o. Then, I have to maneuver the lawn mower through the small back door of the garage and out to the front yard. "Why don't you just push the lawn mower through a gate," you ask. Well, I don't have any gates. Yeah, figure that one out...Anyway, so once the lawn mower gets to the front yard I have to mow one side of the drive way, the real "front yard" part on the other side of the drive way, the ditch (this is the toughest part to maneuver), the side yard that is between our fence and the railroad tracks, the side yard that's between the railroad tracks and the road, the ally, and the the dead end part of our street. Seriously, it's a lot to mow! I don't have a riding mower either. I push mow it all! Are you feeling really sorry for me yet? If not, you should be!

Tomorrow I am going to church. It's been too long that I have been out and I don't like it. After church I am going with my mom and one of her friends on a bike ride in Joplin. It's 20 miles, but I've been working out. I hope I don't make a complete fool of myself!

Tonight I am going to the hill. It's Vicki's birthday! We are going to have dinner and a cake. I really don't need the cake as I had smoked chicken nachos and a slice of caramel fudge pecan pie at the Red Onion Cafe today for lunch. Wait a minute! When have I let something like that stop me?

I don't have much time as the girls are in the backyard unsupervised. They are smart dogs so they have figured out how to get out of our fenced yard to roam the streets of our neighborhood in search of piles of poop to roll in before they come home to stretch out on my bed for a nap. It's springtime though so the rabbit family has tucked away their young under my shed. The girls are fascinated with the miracle of life that has taken place right under their noses. They now spend all of their outside time peeking under the shed in awe of the little rabbit family. Okay, so maybe they think lunch is under the shed, but I don't want to think of my girls munching down baby bunnies. Anyway...I have to mow the lawn today. Ugh! Every spring I try to convince myself that mowing the lawn is an honored privilege. A wonderful opportunity for physical fitness. Yeah, I'm not buying it this year! Anyway, it has to be done, and if I don't do it, it doesn't get done. So, I'm off to get gas for the mower and then I will get started. More on my day later! I know, your riveted aren't you...

The Answers
Here's the deal. I was reading The Ramblings of a Redneck Diva the other day only to find a mention of me. "Oh how nice, she mentioned me," was my first thought. Then I read a little further and she called me a chicken! I am not a chicken. She wanted to ask me five questions. I quickly hurled an email her way. I told her I'd answer her five questions, in fact, I'd even answer six. So here goes...

1. If you could change one habit or behavior about yourself, what would it be?
I would be a morning person. Morning seems like the best time to get things done, and for the life of me, I can't get up early. I am also pretty grouchy in the morning. Chaddy has figured out to just leave me alone.

2. What would be your ideal broadcasting job? Hometown newsgirl? Hollywood entertainment reporter? Tell us how you'd like to see yourself on the TV.
I would totally be a talk show host! I would want to host a David Letterman type show, not one of those creepy "how many guys did she sleep with paternity" shows. I think I would be way better than Rosie O'Donnell was, and she was pretty good.

3. You and your four closest friends are taking a weekend trip somewhere. Where do you go? What do you do while you're free and wild for the weekend? Tell us how the weekend would go.
First we would hop a plane to Cancun where we would be met at the airport by Rico, our Mexican chauffeur. Rico would whisk us away to our beach front bungalows. We would immediately put on our brand new thong bikinis (Hey, we've been working out! Besides this is a fantasy anyway.) and lay at the edge of the water. Jose, our butler, would bring us everything on a silver platter. We would lay in our beach chairs sipping tropical drinks by day and party in the clubs all night! Okay, so I really would never party in the clubs of Cancun! Seriously, I would go to Ireland. We would rent a car and drive the countryside. We would only stay in bed-and-breakfasts.

4. What is your favorite grownup book? (I know Diary of a Worm ranks pretty high on your list, but answer this question with a book that doesn't have pictures, lol)
Is it fair to ask a Kindergarten teacher's favorite book and put this no picture stipulation on it? I really like The Kennedy Curse. I also like Mole People. Gosh, I like Lance Armstrong's It's Not About the Bike too. Um, I also really like all of Nora Roberts' romance novels. I know, I know...how cheesy! I can't help it, they're a guilty pleasure!

5. If you had to choose between: bungee jumping, driving in a demolition derby, drag racing, parasailing or sky diving, which would you choose and why?
Okay, the easiest way for this one may be a process of elimination. Demolition derby and drag racing are out because I have some major issues with driving. I am a white knuckle ten and two driver just on the streets of Mudville! Sky diving is out for what I would hope would be a pretty obvious answer for most people. I would never ever want to jump out of an airplane! I like life. I have no desire to try to end it. I would most likely have a heart attack on the way down and die. Bungee jumping, again, I would probably have a heart attack and die on the way down. Why would anyone want to jump off of a bridge, cliff, whatever with a rubber band attached to them. I don't think that the fall would be as bad as the upward jerk. So, I guess I'm left with parasailing. I have actually wanted to do this for some time. I was all set to go when we were in Cancun last summer, but the hotel people told me it was too dangerous. I don't know about you, but when the Mexicans say something is dangerous I believe them. I mean, those people do anything! But, if I had to do something, it would be parasailing.

6. Would you rather slide down a 40 foot slide laced with razor blades into a vat of alcohol OR would you rather suck a dead man's nose until his chest caved in?
I get it. Do not tempt the Diva thy blogger. Never, under any circumstances ask for another question. Ugh! I hope that I am never actually faced with this choice. Goodness, I guess I would go with sucking the dead man's nose until his chest caved in. I mean, that's gross and all, but I would probably only be sick for a while. I'm guessing that the 40 foot razor blade slide would keep me hurting for a long time.

I Am A Lo-o-o-ser...And Other Random Things About Me
Dad-gum big fancy casino! I won nothing. Nothing. Twice I had friends on machines that were winning like crazy. Twice I was told, "Oh take this machine. It's hitting like crazy." It was hitting like crazy until I sat down at it. I'm glad that all my friends won and all, but come on! It was my first Ladies Night in, like, four months. I totally should have won something.

Our school has an assembly each month and each month a different class hosts. Our assembly to host is on Monday. We have spent the last to afternoons preparing. We are playing a short game of wiffle ball and singing Take Me Out To The Ballgame. My job is so hard, huh. An afternoon of wiffle ball. Keep in mind that for the months I complained about my job, the kids were not the problem.

Here's the kind of friend I am: Tanya and I were walking out of the gym when her daughter and a friend walked up to us. The friend told Tanya, "I'm going." Tanya said, "Yeah! We are going to have fun." I said, "What are you doing?" Tanya said, "We're going camping on the next weekend that we have Friday off." Then, yes, I invited myself along. I didn't even have the decency to fish for an invite. I just said that I wanted to go along. I figure we're good enough friends that if she didn't want me going she'd say so.

I have hair on my arms. Not anything thick or manly, but I'm not one of those girls with no arm hair. On the inside of my right arm I grow a total man hair. I don't know why. It is black. It is thick. It is long. Why, oh why, do I have this man hair on my arm. One day I look down and it's nowhere to be found. The very next day I look down and it looks like it's been growin' there forever! Whenever I see it I yank it out. It's the only hair on that side of my arm. How weird is that. While I'm telling you about my freakish arm hair, I may as well fill you in on my freakish tear ducts. Seriously, this is something I thought everyone could do until I took scuba lessons seven years ago. Even after that I still figured it was common until last year when I saw someone doing the same thing on Discovery Channel's Beyond Human. They claimed that the guy they had was the only person who could do this. The whole time I'm like shouting at the t.v. "I can do it too! I'm BEYOND HUMAN!" I can blow air out of my tear ducts. When I first started diving I couldn't equalize pressure by holding my nose and blowing. All my air would come out of my eyes. And now you're saying, "What a weirdo!" Yup, I guess I am an oddity of nature.

My First Ladies Night Since December 13
Whoo-hoo! I am totally stoked! I get to gamble at the big fancy casino tonight! I am so going to win, I just know it! I have read and reread the "The Idiot's Guide To Working At The Big Fancy Casino" and nowhere does it say that I can't gamble. It does mention that if you are "involuntarily terminated"(um, I'm pretty sure that's politically correct for FIRED) you are banned from the casino floor for thirty days. I was not "involuntarily terminated". I "voluntarily resigned". The manual says nothing about a time period of no gambling! SCORE!

I was a big fat sleepy sloth this weekend! I did nothing but lay in bed or on the couch. I did go eat at Chaddy's mom and dad's yesterday, but then it was home to my jamma's and the couch. We had a Samuel L. Jackson movie festival yesterday. We watched S.W.A.T. and Basic. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up! I have seen both of these several times, but...classics, they are classics. I think that when I am describing "shoot 'em up" action movies as "classics" it might be a sign that Chaddy and I have been together too long! Oh well, who cares. They're good movies.

Next Friday is my day to weigh in with Coach on his "this is how many pounds of fat you have on your body" scale thing. I told him that if I had a higher body fat percentage or more pounds of fat than I had before I will be MAD! I told him that if that happens I will boycott his weight room. He promises me that it won't happen, but come on...who trusts scales. Um, no one. This is my third week of consistently working out. Coach has put me on a plan that is cardio everyday and weights twice a week. He says, "You just want to tone, you don't want to bulk up." I'm listening to him for now. Although he also told me, "No soda, no chips, and no chocolate donuts." Yeah, I kinda pick and choose what I listen to.

Wish me luck! We are going to the Lucky Turtle (seriously, only an Oklahoma Indian Casino would be named the Lucky Turtle) for dinner (only in Oklahoma would you find a gas station/car wash/convenience store/restaurant/casino) and our $5.00 and then on to the big fancy casino for our $10.00. I am going to gamble and drink....just to show them I can!

It took me longer to drive to the dentist than it took for my exam. I only live a few blocks from the dentist. I have good teeth. I know...stop bragging. Basically he looked in my mouth, made a comment about everything looking good, and told me he would see me in six months. In the meantime we are going to have to pawn everything we own to pay for Chaddy's dental work.

My mom's side of the family eats breakfast every Saturday together. Just as we walked in this morning, my two year old cousin hurled. Yup, right there at the bar. So, I really thought that his mom would not send him over to my house for the afternoon as planned. Guess what, she sent him. As I was trying to organize egg dying for three children the poor kid starts puking some more. Hello!! What is it with me and puke lately? I called his mom and was like, "Um, could you go ahead and come back for him?" What a bummer! This was his first year to dye eggs for Easter! Oh, did I forget to mention? His mom refuses to dye eggs at their house. "It's too messy." What's the big deal? Cover 'em up with an old t-shirt and let them go at it! We had fun, even with the puke. They were all gone by 12:00 and I was in bed by 12:30. I got up about thirty minutes ago and made some Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Yummmy! I have also eaten half a bag of Whopper's Robin Eggs. How can a girl resist? I have been watching the entire season of Newlyweds. The series ends on Wednesday. It is the end of an era. How will we survive without our weekly Jessica-isms? Oh alright, I guess we'll manage.

Did I ever mention that Chaddy was going to paint our computer/Jeep room camouflage? It was a great idea! He even sketched it out all over the walls. Too bad its not even half painted. That is the story of our lives. We have a hole in the bathroom wall where a water/plumbing thing was fixed. We don't have switch plate covers on alot of outlets, and blah, blah, blah. I think that's just how it is once you own your own home. Someday we'll get everything fixed and sell the place.

Jessica is practicing her stunt driving for Dukes of Hazard in this episode of Newlyweds. I can't wait to see that movie! I hope that don't screw it up. I am loving that CMT is airing old episodes of the Dukes of Hazard. I watched one last night. Quality television programing, I say.
