It's OK 5/24

First, the winner of the autographed copy of The Snow Child is (fellow teacher and blog friend) Kristen @Established: 2008.  Shoot me an email ( with your mailing address and I'll send it out soon!

Thank you all for your book recommendations.  I have a lot of reading to do this summer!

Secondly, my copy of Fifty Shades of Grey is still sitting in the living room.  Any takers??

Didn't think so.

Moving on..

Its Ok Thursdays

It's okay...

...that I finally unsubscribed from Groupon.  Honestly, just because I live in Alaska does not mean I want to participate in Alaskan activities.  I told them that too, when they asked why I was unsubscribing.

...that I finished this book in 3 hours last Saturday night.  A co-worker recommended Sarah's Key to me.  Definitely makes you appreciate what you have.  You don't even need to have a background in World War II history to understand it...the book does all the explaining for you.

...that the 2011-2012 school year is done.  I can't believe my second year is over.  These aren't even my kids and I feel like time is moving too fast.

However, I'm mostly excited about the idea of summer vacation.(via) have been absolutely peeved when a substitute took over Turbokick the other day.  She was an idiot.  An absolute idiot.  I can't believe I drove 40 minutes to practice "kicking techniques, not choreography" to the musical stylings of Miranda Lambert, Adele, and various Christian artists.

I didn't over-react in a dramatic way...not at all. (via) have had it with circuit training.  I stopped going on Tuesdays about 3 weeks ago.  I switched to pilates on that night.  Life is too short for boring workouts.  Circuit training doesn't play music = it's boring.

...that I've started it at least 3 times, but still have not made it the whole way through Sunday's episode of Mad Men.  I love it.  I do.  But for the past two weeks, I've been in a True Blood phase.  When I'm not trying to decipher episodes of Game of Thrones, that is.

Oh.  And for your viewing pleasure..

Let's change the state motto to "Move to Alaska.  Go broke trying to feed your family fruits and vegetables."  I'll have to speak with the governor about that. 


  1. I read Sarah's Key a couple years ago and I really loved it. Those prices are CRAZY!

  2. Sarah's Key makes me want to cry. Or it made me cry. Or both. But so, so good!

  3. Those prices are insane! I am always looking for new books to add to my kindle so I may have to read that.

  4. I'm so jealous that you get a summer vacation. I want one too!

    Made Men, True Blood & three favorite shows! Last year was a total TB year, this year it's GoT. Seriously I can't get enough it of. I'm even starting the books this weekend :)

    How in the hell do you guys stay healthy with those prices?! That's insane.

  5. sarah's ley is an amazing book! i read it years ago and saw the movie (which was pretty good!) last year.

    cute blog you have!

  6. i need to give sarah's key another shot. I was not in the right mind frame when I started it. I don't know how you survive in alaska with those prices. that's crazytown! I know I need to fix my email thing so you can respond...but I don't know how. blogger fail. Help!

  7. Are you kidding me? I will never complain about prices again!

  8. Twelve dollar watermelons?!?!?! YOWZA!

  9. Sarah's Key was good! Have you watched the movie? It's on Netflix and I heard it was good but haven't gotten around to watching it. Probably because it's subtitled and when I watch movies, I'm ADD and always do something else.
    Holy hell. Do those watermelons have magical healing powers? I thought Hawaii was pricey... but apparently not nearly as bad as there.
