Terri's (First Grade Princess) package from Hawaii didn't arrive this weekend but we're expecting it in the next day or two! I can't wait to see what she has added to my giveaway! This means you still have time to enter and I will give a "Last Call" once it's arrived and then I'll choose the lucky winner!

I ended up spending a few hours in my classroom this afternoon...and TIMMMMMBERRRRRRR!
Yeah. My heart stopped. We have limbs everywhere friends which means they were either taken of with gentle loving hands or they snapped off in the move. (My dad and I drilled those suckers into the trunk...with big screws.) Either way, it's still my fault. I was told that everything was going to come out of my room...just wish I could have had a little heads up when it was my room's turn to be cleaned because I would have come in and moved it out for them. Poor tree.
Then I found one of my bookshelves...
So today I was Miss Fix-It...and learned several things...
1. Nails are different sizes and types for different reasons...of which I do not know yet. My book shelf is nailed back together for the most part and I still have all of my fingers...good day.
2. Red spray paint will still get on you even with a gentle breeze. Next time, I need to assess the wind direction before going crazy with the spray can. I had pink spray paint (I think the red blended with the sweat...eww! Gross!) all over my right hand and arm...and a nice pink spray paint line on my leg.
3. Chalkboard paint still splatters. I now own a pair of paint shorts. Geesh! (I'm turning my brown chalkboards to black so that it goes better with my colors!)
|I have two boards like this...hope it works!|
My chalkboard paint needs to dry for a good 24 hours so I'm going to try to recruit my sister (yep, you...Tricia) to come in and do the second coat for me this week sometime.
Whoa! 6 Sundays from today will be my First Day Eve! YIKES!
