Spring is Here! (I Hope)

The weather is so nice today.  I spent some time yesterday and today cleaning up the yard a bit.  I love when I can start spending some time outside.  I tried to start the lawn mower to get rid of some ugly winter grass but it wouldn't start.  I do have the sprinklers going.  Maybe green soon!

My Story!

My story is a lot like Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.  I've included the first page just in case you are not familiar with the story.  But here is MY story.

MarJean and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad, Maybe O.K. Week
I can't say that Monday was to bad of a day.  The only problem with Monday was it was the last day of Spring Break and I had to go back to school on Tuesday.  But then just watch out.
Tuesday started pretty good.  Early Afternoon I had to meet with the parents of one of my students.  I can't say much about this student. (The last thing I need is the Ethics Board on my back.) Let my just say that if I worked in a bigger district he would not be in my class but in a Behavior Unit School.  The meeting didn't go all that swell.  As I was leaving the meeting the principal said she needed to talk with me.  She asked me if I would like to switch grades next year.  I told no! Absolutely NO!  She then tells me I didn't have a choice.  If I wanted to still have a job I would have to leave the love of my life Kindergarten and move to 2nd grade.  I had a hard time finishing the day.  I got home and cried and cried and cried.  
Wednesday was a real BLUE day. I just didn't have it in me to do much.  I hadn't slept well, wonder why (LOL), and was ready to start the day at school when I realized I didn't have my contacts in.  What a great, blurry day.  I came home from school to find out that my mother cat had had her babies 3 weeks early and none of them survived.  What else could go wrong!
Thursday I woke up to 3+ inches of snow, yes snow, on the ground. Great I thought.  It was Bunco last night which always lifts my spirits. Yeah!!!!!! Something Good.
I felt that the week couldn't get any worse.  Then I went to school Friday.  The above mentioned student had a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day!!!  I had to have help to remove him for the class. I just needed something renewing.  So I called a friend and we decided to go to the Temple.  After 1 1/2 hours of driving we got to Manti to find the Temple closed for cleaning. Really!  We drove into Ephriam to shop at WalMart. My Aunt Nola and her daughter were there.  I don't believe I have seen them since mom's funeral.  It was so good to visit just a minute with them.  Yeah!  My friend and I had a great drive laughing and talking and uplifting each other.  So Maybe the week ended OK after all. 
Oh.......wait.  It's not over until tomorrow!  Pray for me.

Fun, Fun and More Fun.

Thursday afternoon my Uncle Brent and Aunt ZoeAnn from Honeyville, UT and my cousin Aaron, his wife Katie and there 4 kids, from Enoch, UT came to stay with me.  We had lots of fun.  Friday we spent at Capital Reef and Big Rocks.  I think the high for that day was 48.  Saturday we spent at Capital Reef again.  I'm sorry to say that they didn't hike as much as they would have liked to because they had gimpy me along. Saturday got up to about 60.  Today we went to Sacrament meeting and then all went on their way home.  Thank you so much for coming!

I have family, Aunt, Uncle and Cousins, coming today to spend the rest of the week with me for Easter.  I had a bit of a crazy creative moment.  I just finished making this cake.  I hope they enjoy sweet things.
