Manners, people...C'mon

Some people just don't say please or thank you and frankly, I think it is rude!! Why can't you be polite and acknowledge when someone did something for you or you are requesting something to be done?

I went to the store and purchased one item but bought 6 of them. So when the clerk told me the price I informed her that I bought more than that. She simply said, oh they must have been stuck together and carried on with her business. Not a thank you or I appreciate your honesty. People like her make me not want to speak up next time and just rip the store off since it was their mistake to begin with.

A please or thank you or even a friendly smile can go a long way!!!!

I passed my APT state exam for my IL teaching certificate. YES!!!! I cannot tell you how relieved I was to find out that I passed. Let me tell you the anxiety I was experiencing all day, well pretty much sucked. To find out that I don't have to retake it and relive stress, headaches, and pressure was such a relief!

Thank you all for your prayers, support, and encouragement...I wouldn't have made it through with out you. Now to just finish up classes and teach for a month and have that license. The end is in sight.

Sometimes I embrace it, sometimes I am scared of it, sometimes I look forward to it, sometimes it makes me anxious, sometimes I don't know how to handle it, and sometimes it confuses me.

This is the season I am in.

Complete Randomness

I am wondering when I can hang up the boots for the winter! I think we've gotten plenty of snow this winter....

It is frustrating when I have worked hard on eating healthy and working out and have plateaued for a month. I am trying to stay positive, but sometimes when you don't see the results I am ready to give up.

I feel like I am out of clothes to wear this winter. As a girl, I go through this a couple of times a year. Yet I do have a whole closet full of great clothes. This winter I have not been interested in wearing any my sweaters so my wardrobe is limited. So what needs to happen? Spring needs to come!

And there looks like a bunch of good movies coming out on Valentine's Day. Wahoo!
