My Amazing Neurologist, Dr. Neff!

27 08 2010

Here’s one of the best doctors that I have ever known.  She is a wonderful and caring human being.  I thought that you all should meet her!  (I wonder who’s brain she’s holding… Doctors will touch anything!)

Oops! Got caught red-handed!

Matteo Luca Preite

2 07 2010

Went to the baptism of Greg’s little cousin, Matteo, over the weekend.  Greg was the Godfather.  Ok, what the heck…  he’s been a Godfather twice just this month and me, nothing!   And I thought that I was the cute one! (not to mention sweet, generous, and athletic)  Matteo’s Aunt Mary Lou is the proud Godmother and I’m very happy for her.  Oh well, check this out-  if you watch this video you will see me with the most famous person I know, Jay Preite!  He is the VP of animation at Fox studios.  He draws for the Simpson’s TV show and also The Family Guy.  He has designed covers for Rolling Stone, TV Guide, Harper’s, Vanity Fair, and Playboy! I even have a Simpson’s Movie poster that he autographed in my classroom and a new Family Guy autographed poster too!  Hmm… I wonder if I could sell those on eBay?  JUST KIDDING!

Ate too much…

Went to a family function over the weekend.  Food was great!  I’m sooooo full!

Oh Boy, too much cake...

Redge, The Singing Jesus Guy

19 06 2010

Ok, so for years now I have seen this guy standing on the corner of Winchester and Margarita in Temecula playing his guitar, singing about Jesus, and driving a “Jesus” car.  Today, I decided that I was going to meet him.  And, of course, that I would capture it on video!  Little did I know that it would turn into a duet.  Oh boy, you have to see this…

Oh boy, what a morning.  Ok, so I should back up and start with yesterday.

So…    the bell rings on Wednesday and, since I didn’t have any students in class that day, I was pretty much caught up on all my work so I gathered my things and left for home.  When I was walking out to the parking lot, I saw that Mr. Williams and Mr. Beach were still at school working.   Ha!  I guess I am just a little bit more organized than they are today.  Yay for me!  Greg and Lilly were at our store and I knew they wouldn’t be home until after 6:00 so hey, I had some free time to myself.  I ran a few errands, went home, piddled around the house, read the mail, and even got a workout in.  The hubby and doggie showed up around 6:30 and we had dinner, watched some TV, and had a very nice evening.

This morning I set the alarm for 5:30am and got an extra half hour of sleep (but of course Lilly woke us up shortly after 5:00am).  Oh well, I still love her.  Anyway, Greg and I got up, had coffee, and I started getting ready for school.  I started thinking about the day and graduation tonight.  I had to remember to bring my robe and the camera and a few other things.  SUDDENLY IT HIT ME:  “Oh my God, graduation practice was yesterday after school! I completely forgot!” Ok, so now the panic sets in.  “I’m going to get in so much trouble.”  “Everyone is going to be mad at me.” “They’ll probably dock my pay.” “I bet they were all looking for me.” (After all, if I’m not there, then of course they must be looking for me.)   Well, needless to say, that pretty much ruined the morning and my good, relaxing mood.  Probably took a year or two off Greg’s life too.  Good thing that Lilly doesn’t know about these things.

When I made it in to school today, I confessed my sin to Kay Fraser.  She was totally cool and told me that it was no big deal and that everyone has days like that.  She made me feel better and brought my good mood back.  We are so lucky to have her at Great Oak.  I can’t tell you how many times she has helped me.  Thank you Kay!

So I promise that I will be at graduation tonight and I look forward to seeing all of the seniors celebrate the accomplishment of their last four years.  Hey, some of you might even find yourself on this blog tomorrow morning 🙂
