Random Tuesday

I'm linking up with Stacy.

I hope all of you moms had a wonderful Mother's Day.  As I sit here looking at the beautiful flowers my son gave me, the lavender plant, letter, gift card, and Bath & Body Works from my daughter, and flowers from my step-daughter, I realize how incredibly blessed I am.  Not because I got these gifts, but because of the way my children have grown into caring, generous, empathic adults.  I was able to see my mom on Mother's Day as well, making it close to perfect, except for not seeing ALL of the kids in person, and except for having to go to Lowe's.  But Lowe's turned out okay, too, because I got to choose new tile for my bathroom.  How lucky am I?

On the other hand, have you ever noticed when you take a day "off," you just have more to do the next day?  Whether it's shopping, cleaning, cooking, whatever... it's there waiting for you the next day!  But... that's okay, too.  It's what I signed up for when I decided to be a wife and mother.

We are in the midst of state testing this week at school.  I hate it.  For five hours, teachers are not allowed to be on the computer or phone, read a book, grade papers, nothing.  Monitor students.  Sit and look at them all day.  Walk around the room every few minutes.  Keep them quiet when they're finished until the whole school is finished.  That's difficult!  And my assigned testing group has some troublemakers in it.  Oh, what fun!  *sarcasm, in case you didn't know* 
I'm not even going to get into whether the test itself is worthwhile.  I could write pages and pages about that!   When seeing things positively, it does mean that the end is in sight!

How about some funnies?

Have a great week!

  1. Very nice gifts for Mother's Day!
    From the memes you posted, it seems you and I are on the same level regarding the education system and state testing.
