I know I've been slacking on blogging and I am sorry. I am hoping that this post will get me back on track.
Just a quick update on my friend, Drew, who is fighting leukemia .... he is doing OK, he is about to go through his third round of chemo. Both Drew and his wife are still debating if they want to go through the stem cell transplant. His brother was only a 5 out of 10 match and it looks like he will have to go through the national registry. Please continue sending prayers their way.
Another dear friend and co-worker was diagnosed with breast cancer recently. She is a mom of two adorable young kids. I am amazed by her strength and positive attitude!!! She is incredible. Please include my friend Lisa in your prayers as well. She is going to kick cancers butt and do it in style!
I have been off this entire past week for Thanksgiving..... Holy smokes, did I enjoy spending time with my family. I don't know if its because I am older now and my kids are older but appreciate my time off with them so much more. I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving and enjoyed your time with family and friends.
Now time to grade papers and get ready for the week ahead. Only 3 weeks until I have my next vacation, but who's counting? :)
I am linking up with Farley from Oh Boy 4th Grade's Currently linky party....come join the fun!

If you are anything like me, I know you love stamps! How can a teacher not love them? In one simple "press" we can bring a smile to our students. Seth from www.rubberstamps.com contacted me to ask if I wanted to try out some stamps. O.M.G.! Did I just get asked to try out rubber stamps? I can even pick out which ones I want to try out? Of course I said yes! And of course I picked a frog stamp...
I decided to pick the stamps from the Motivational category on the Teacher Stamps page, however there are tons of stamps to choose from. In fact, I am planning on ordering a "Parent Signature Required" stamp, a "Please Re Do" stamp, and a few more.
You must go to www.rubberstamps.com and check out all their stamps! Besides an incredible selection of all kinds of stamps they offer free shipping! WOWZA!
Here's your chance to win 4 stamps just like mine!

I am going to be honest! I hate the first "my truth"..... almost as much as I hate exercising! I need to exercise more than anyone I know and I don't. :(
What are your thoughts on exercising or fitness?

LOVING.... all the wonderful support I have received since I learned my friend Drew has leukemia. I raised a lot of money during my Thiry-One Gifts online party and even received some generous monetary donations from some of my awesome blogging buddies.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!! My friends Drew and Jane are overwhelmed with all your kindness. They are feeling the love! The prayers and positive thoughts are working. Drew finished his first round of chemo and had a bone marrow biopsy yesterday........<insert drum roll here>......... I am pleased to announce that it looks like the chemo killed all the cancer! YAHOO!!!!!!!!!! The prognosis is looking up. Keep up the prayers and positive thoughts for my friends the Castings!
Lastly for my treat... Pumpkin Poop!
