. . . for Lauren and Lauren: I don't understand

May 19, 2013

I don't understand

skirt:  tjmaxx   tank: shadeclothing  maternity   vest: loft    necklace: groopdealz 

I don't understand how I'm supposed to sleep comfortably in my bed after finding a tick crawling on me the other night while in bed, and then another one on our wall the next day.   And I don't understand why I felt the need to take a picture of it and share it with you.  I'm sorry.  It really it too disgusting.  

I don't understand why my belly has started growing sideways instead of straight out.  Isn't that the wrong way? 
I don't understand why last week I lost more than a handful of followers and how to not let that bother me a little.
I don't understand how I am supposed to have energy after school when it is in the upper 80's outside and I'm in an non air conditioned classroom with 21 sweaty, restless kids who are ready for summer, with a pregnant belly that makes me even more sweaty and tired.  
I don't understand why all shows end in May.  I would much prefer 90210, Modern Family and Parks and Recreation to continue throughout the summer. 
Speaking of tv shows, I don't understand why Netflix sucks me in with the first two seasons of shows like Sister Wives and Hart of Dixie, but doesn't have the rest of the seasons available.
  
I don't understand why my sister has to go back to Vermont after visiting this weekend.  Wishing she could stay!
and I don't understand why I forgot to pick a winner for the Target giftcard giveaway.  Congratulations to Deborah Rose!  Email me at katiejvale@yahoo.com and Lindsay and I will get you your prize.

Oh my word.. Ticks are crazy this year!! I've already seen 2 and heard of lots more from others. SO nasty!!! As for heart of Dixie.. I love that show!!

oh man, ticks creep me out. for some reason when i was younger i was less scared (my parents have a LOT of trees)...but we found one on the dog the other day and on my hubby's pant leg. and i couldn't stop itchy all night!

Oh my goodness...no air conditioning in your classroom. You may deserve a summer vacation more than any of us!

Cathy said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Oh my, ticks! I had a roach run past the microwave while I was heating up my food at work last week! There, now I shared something equally disgusting :) I don't understand why all of the good shows have to end in May either and leave nothing but reruns for the summer months :( I don't understand why I have been receiving fewer comments on my blog the last few months :( But you look great in this outfit! :)

Ticks, yuck! I had a TARANTULA in my classroom a couple of weeks ago (apparently they loveee South Central TX in the spring) and that night in bed, I couldn't help but have the feeling that creepy crawlers were all over me! I'm so sorry you lost a group of followers, who wouldn't love you?! I aspire to have at least half of what you currently have! Someday... and Netflix sucks us in too! They're tricky tricky.

Jodi said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ticks = gross!!!! Do you have a dog? I wonder where they came from. I would be so freaked out too! Glad you had a fun weekend w/ your sister even if it went by too quickly.

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I've lost 20+ Twitter followers in the last week or so. Who knows the reasons...

A belly growing sideways would concern me too :)

Simply LKJ said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Tis the season...I am constantly checking our dogs!!! Ewww. Ok, funny prego story...when I was prego with our first I had terrible nightmares...one of which was I SWORE there was a spider on the wall of our bedroom. Poor hubby spent over an hour trying to hunt the sucker down, to no avail, because well...it was a nightmare. LOL You my dear however have living proof, and I now have a hubby who tells me to collect my own bugs! No A/C in the classroom??? That is so 1970s!!! Okay, baby belly growing sideways...not really, just baby's most comfortable position right now (it will change). Never really understood the whole "sister wives" thing...really???

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

sister wives is so disturbing...i can't stop watching though.

and OMG i would not be able to sleep after finding a tick either - those things GROSS me out!

happy sunday friend!

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I don't understand how you don't feel like death in a non-ac classroom. My office has AC and every day I have these moments where I swear I am fire I am so dang hot!!

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Yuck to the ticks!! I hate bugs!!
Did you know 90210 is done now as in series finale?? So I started watching the original 90210 on Netflix! Lol
I lost followers this past week too!! Ugh!!

Allison said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I hate ticks!! And I always get upset when I see the number of followers go down because I wonder what I did...but then I get over it. Haha. I don't know how in the world you are teaching right now. Summer is so close and I know you are ready!! Wahoo.

Jordan Shaner said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I don't blame you for not being able to sleep after those two tick instances! Ticks freak me out!!

Ticks, disgusting! I hate how it feels to lose a follower too, I love yor blog and if they chose to quit following you it's their loss.

Alana Christine said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Holy cow, that's a huge tick! I would have freaked out! It actually makes me cringe just thinking about it.

Don't get me started about shows ending, I'm still heartbroken that The Office is NEVER coming back : (

Ms. Morgan said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Wow that is a huge tick! OMG I wouldn't be able to sleep either knowing that there could be more.... eeee!!!!

I also completely agree with Netflix being a tease. I also have Hulu which will recommend a new show for me only to have Season 3 available and not the first two...which then are also not available on Netflix either. *sigh*

Thanks for sharing. Hope you can stop by www.curvesandacamera.com soon.

Jen B said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That tick is gross... And Netflix def needs more seasons available...

Savanna said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I totally grew sideways instead of out with my daughter. My son I looked like I had a ball stuck under my shirt the whole time. This one I am growing out again so I feel like it is another girl.

No AC sucks!

Ashleigh Walls said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You may have lost some followers but I wanted to let you know I'm a new follower! So at least you have gained some :) And now seeing the picture of the tick is going to keep me up all night staring at my walls.

Rare Nonsense said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

We have been dealing with ticks in Indiana as well. Last year was worse as I found 25 between February and the end if April. And yes, that was in my house or on my "treated" animals!!! This year we are up to 5. They are horrible!

Joyce said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

oh my, that is so scary! Pretty much all bugs scare me D: And I totally get you, I wish modern family didn't have to end it's season in may!

Denise said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Yuck to ticks.

Annie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You and your sister are too cute! And that tick is freaking HUGE...I wouldn't be able to sleep either! Love netflix...but hate when they don't have more seasons available right :)

Niki Caron said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

OMG! The tick is scary!!!!! And it bothers me when I lose followers too, especially when it's a handful at one time. It's hard not to take personally :( But just keep doing what you're doing girl! You definitely have a loyal following of people who love you!

lovejoy_31 said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I am right there with you on Sister Wives. Love it, but can't imagine living it. I completely don't understand why they don't have all of the seasons available.

TheTinyHeart said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Eek that tick would freak me out too! When I lived in NYC I had mice in my apartment and it was impossible for me to sleep!

Glad you had a good time with your sister, but sorry she had to go back home! I hated when we lived away from family...it was so hard!! The follower (or loss of followers) has been getting to me too this week. It's hard not to let it bother you. Keep smiling :)

Laura Ackerson said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Girl, you have an UNairconditioned classroom??? How do you do it??

Always Maylee said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Yuck, ticks totally freak me out! I wish shows would all end at different times so that you still had something to watch when one ends. On the bright side you look so adorable! :)

xo, Yi-chia

Omg that tick!! Sick! And I never understand when I lose followers, it always makes me so sad!

Nadine said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I totally agree with you about shows ending! WHY!? And I had the exact same thing happen to me with Scandal. The first season is available on Netflix but where can I start season 2 from the beginning? So frustrating.

The summer is definitely lacking in TV shows. I wish networks would stagger stuff...haha.

Ooooh that bug is just awful! :(

carol jane said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

What part of the country do you live in? be super careful with ticks, especially when your pregnant. I would get an exterminator.

meme-and-he said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

YES! this exact thing happened to me the other night!! I felt something crawling on my neck and it was a tick! I screamed and flung it onto the bed and made my husband flush it down the toilet. Seriously, I itched the rest of the night.

Kelly {Sparkles and Shoes} said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Eeek, I hope you get rid of the bugs soon and that school is over soon!
