Hmmmm, let's see...since I talked to you last I have settled into my new job. At first I was not digging the 20-25 minute drive in the morning since my old job was 3 minutes from my house, but I'm in the groove now. It gives me time to collect my thoughts for the day, listen to news or whatever's on the Christian station- a good financial program normally comes on. The afternoon is not so bad because I come back to my home school at 11:15-11:30 then at the end of the day it's like 8-10 minutes to home. I get reimbursed for gas mileage.

Since I'm teaching all Spanish One there's no brain strain; I actually enjoy planning the lessons. I stopped teaching before bc of the administration but it's much cooler here, especially since I'm the only Spanish teacher. Before when I taught, I had this militant Spanish department head breathing down my everloving neck every 5 seconds seeing what I was doing wrong.

Also, the schedule has been great for my diet too. I have cut out between meal snacks 100% because I don't have time, and I never used to eat breakfast but now I'm having cereal each morning. I don't know about you but I don't like wimpy airy cereal. I want a cereal so heavy the box weighs like 10 pounds. Chex, Cheerios, etc- too light. I want something with like twigs and sticks and big unidentifiable nuggets that you have to gnaw to chew. Oh yeah, and raisins are good.

So far I have lost about 12 pounds give or take and I just now started exercising so I'm hoping things will progress a little faster.
Autumn is arriving here in Monkeyville. The days are still warm but the nights are getting chilly willy. Soon the leaves will be a-changin' and it'll be "pumpkin weather" as I like to call it. It's my favorite time of the year. Just cool enough for long sleeves but not too too cold. The girls asked to go get "punkies" this weekend so we went to the farm/garden center place where they have the sheep and horses and that was a fun little family adventure for them.

Thank you for all the niceness in comments and emails to me. Although I enjoyed the little break I missed the camaraderie and I am glad to be back here at the Monkeyville Ranch. Now all I need is a new template (cough, Echo, cough cough) and I'll be good ta go.

BTW in case you didn't read it b4 my new email is Verizon bites and they wouldn't let me keep my same address.

As always, if you can't open comments, right click the link and choose open in new window.

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)

Lilypie 1st Birthday Ticker
Who's the Monkey Mama?

Location: Planet Twinstar, Monkeyville, United States

I'm a real live human person...the slightly wacky mom of 6 year old identical twin primate princesses and one 2year old monkeyboy. I'm divorced from a crazy baboon and remarried to a big snuggly gorilla. I thank God daily for my wonderful family and friends, without whom I would go berserk. My chirren are the cutest kids ever born (besides yours) and if you don't believe that you obviously need to see a shrink.

How is she feeling?
