By the way, my dear husband never even made it out of bed so I guess that counts as me beating him! :)

I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner. I took out my wallet, got out ten dollars and asked, "If I give you this money, will you buy wine with it instead of dinner?" "No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless woman told me."Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?" I asked."No, I don't waste time shopping," the homeless woman said. "I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive." ''Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?"I asked."Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless woman. "I haven't had my hair done in 20 years!"''Well," I said, "I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you out for dinner with my husband and me tonight."The homeless Woman was shocked. "Won't your husband be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting."I said, "That's okay. It's important for him to see what a woman looks like after she has given up shopping, hair appointments, and wine."

I was so excited to see this in my inbox yesterday from Sephora. I've been riding the dark nail polish wagon for a while now thinking it made me closer to all the celebs in LA. Here I am four months later no closer to being famous than I was before and finally ready to brighten up my hands and feet with some fun polish. After my run yesterday I stopped by JcPenney to see if Sephora already had them in but no luck. I was however able to snag another fun color by OPI called Koala Berry. It actually looks pretty similar to the first one (top left) in the picture. I tried to make it to the nail place to get a mani/pedi but they were already closed. I must have been pretty excited because as soon as I showered and changed and attempted my own mani/pedi to try out the color. Love it! It's still a little strange to see something so bright and vibrant on my nails but it's just another sign that spring is near!

P.S. Got a phone call from the radio station I won the Valentines dinner package from bright and early this morning (6:40 AM). They just wanted to see how things had gone Friday night at Lansky's. Seemed a lot of people I work with were curious about it too --- It was PERFECT!

This morning we both had to be up early for inservices. I got back around 1 and started to do the one thing I don't LOVE ---clean! The rest of the afternoon we spent watching TV, drove around looking at houses--which I do LOVE and are now getting ready to go out downtown with friends. We had a great time last time we were out there and are looking forward to hanging out with our friends.

Event 1: Student has hard time staying quiet while testing. Student is talking, humming, being disrespectful to others and at times walking around. Rest of class is losing focus. Teacher asks student several times to stop, others are testing, not another word please. Student responds "word" and smiles. Again teacher asks for no more noise to which student says "noise" and smiles. During break teacher calls parent, parent talks to student. Some change in behavior but not much. Parent comes to pick up child and class can hear the yelling outside. What would I do?
Event 2: Seems student forgot to do math homework. Parent comes to pick student up and asks teacher if all homework was turned in. When teacher responds no, all can see anger in parents face. Parent yells at student in front of all which then leads to argument between mom and dad again in front of all. What would I do?
It's a tough question, but I hope I always remember to be respectful and make sure that my kids really understand why I'm disappointed or upset. Should they be afraid of their parents? Events above just didn't seem right.

a. slept in
b. watched Oprah, The View on DVR
c. gone out to breakfast with the hubby
d. RAN my Personal Best in the Edinburg 10k.
I chose D and am so proud of myself. My only goal this morning was to get through the whole thing without stopping and improve my time from the last race. I did both! I had fun out there, there was thousands of people and at times the wind was horrible but the sense of accomplishment is worth it. Mariana did awesome too, all 6.2 miles without stopping! Next big race the Statesmen 10k in Austin!

So tomorrow is finally FRIDAY!!!!! It seems that the deeper we get into the semester the longer the days and weeks get. This week was hard. Harder than many in the past. I remember yesterday as we were warming up for spinning the instructor saying "Is anyone feeling stressed?" I was quick to say yes. He said well hopefully this class will help relieve some of that. I spent the rest of the class thinking about my answer (and in pain). Am I really that stressed? Should I be?
The CORRECT answer is NO. I have a job that enables me grow everyday as a person, am married to someone who loves me for ME, have friends I can always count on and a family like no other. So am I stressed? No, I'm grateful. :)

Dear Tech Support ,
Last year (7 months really) I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0 . In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as:
Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5,
and then installed undesirable programs such as :
NBA 5.0, NFL 3.0 and Golf Clubs 4.1 .
Also Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2. 6 simply crashes the system.
Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail. What can I do?
DEAR DESPERATE ,
First, keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. Please enter command: ithoughtyoulovedme.html and try to download Tears 6.2 and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update.
If that application works as designed , Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5. However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5 , Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1.
Please note that Beer 6. 1 is a very bad program that will download the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta. Whatever you do, DO NOT under any circumstances install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.) In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0 -program These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0 .In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend · Cooking 3.0 and Hot Lingerie 7.7.
Good Luck! Tech Support
