5 days.

They say your first year of teaching is always the hardest. Man. If it's not, I don't know how I will continue. This year is kicking my butt. Literally I'm falling apart. Monday- Friday I pull 9-10 hour workdays, Saturdays I take off, and Sundays I'm back in the books trying to figure out how to fit EVERYTHING into the next 16 days before the CRCT. 

16. Sixteen. 1-6 days until the big CRCT. 

I can't. 
I just can't. 

With the stress of teaching I started running again... bad idea. I messed up my knee again. Doc is sending me to a specialist and I'm headed to possibly be getting injections in my knee. I'm too young for all this stress and pain. 

BUT PRAISE THE LORD SPRING BREAK IS NEXT WEEK! Only five school days left until I am on vacation. Really only four teaching days, because Thursday we are going on a field trip. (Prayers are being accepted now!)

I have been reading through Psalms this month. When I started reading it I didn't know why the Lord was telling me to read this part of the bible. I am so glad I listened because Psalms is exactly what I have been needing. This morning one of my verses was, Psalms 42:5 
Why am I so sad? 
Why am I so troubled?
 I will put my hope in God, 
and once again I will praise him, 
my saviour and my God

Day 60: March 1, 2014:
I'm becoming a fan of driving at night. It's just me and the road. 

Day 61: March 2, 2014:
This was a hard day. It was difficult. It was a challenge. But I was reminded by the beauty of God's creations that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. 

Day 62: March 3, 2014:
Migraine Monday

Day 63: March 4, 2014:
Migraine Tuesday

Day 64: March 5, 2014:
Finally a day without a migraine, which meant I got a ton of work done. I almost pulled an 11 hour work day. But once those kids left, I got SO much work done. I felt accomplished!

Day 65: March 6, 2014:
Seeing that I posted this status two years ago on this date was something I really needed to see that morning. 

Day 66: March 7, 2014:
I spent my evening at my first ever college tennis match! UGA vs Miss State. 

This week was absolutely horrible. Here's to hoping and praying that next week is much better!!

All of me

I haven't blogged in what feels like forever. Today's post is a little bit of everything I think:

Last week I introduced you to my boyfriend. This week I am introducing you to his sister, Juli! She is a wife, a sister, a friend, an encourager and a teacher who loves Jesus and her family. She has her own little etsy shop: Julianne By Hand

For Valentine's day JD had her make me these boot cuffs and a coffee cozy!
Are these not the cutest things ever!? Juli makes them herself and has a ton of colors you can choose from!

Ahhh! I am so in love with this coffee cozy! 

Go check out her shop! Maybe I will do a giveaway for one of her items.... hmm. Who's in? 

Quick Update
Day 52: February 21, 2014: Enough said.

Day 53: February 22, 2014: We hung out with another couple this night and it was absolutely perfect. This is my favorite picture of us. :) 

 Day 54: February 23, 2014: Perfect sunset to end a perfect weekend!

Day 55: February 24, 2014: After a very rough day, sometimes just sitting in the silence of the car makes you realize how blessed you really are. 

Day 56: February 25, 2014: Learning to be still. 

Day 57: February 26, 2014: The night I met his mom for the first time she told me he has 'explaining hands'. I never realized it until this night at dinner. (Isn't he the cutest thing ever!)

Day 58: February 27, 2014: Sunshine was pouring through the windows and I got an unexpected evening with these two. 

Day 59: February 28, 2014: After a looonnnggg week I was finally able to catch up on my shows. So happy Grey's Anatomy is back on. 

Well here's to another good week. Hoping next week is better!!! 
How are you spending your weekend?
