WINNERS and such :)

if you follow my twitter then you might be aware of the new things happening in my life.  i’ve taught 7th grade math for 4 years.  this year i will not be teaching students.  my “supervisor” moved up to the administration building and i applied for her old position…and got it.  ๐Ÿ™‚
so my “new” job is at the same school, in the same department [yay math!], but totally different.
the title is “math specialist” – i pretty much oversee the math teachers, gather data, analyze data, lead meetings, provide, support, inform, you name it.  i’m kind of excited and nervous and a lot of other things.  i know i can do this job and want to prove it to a lot of people.  but i’m still learning what all it entails!
i also love the math team – everyone is so kind and caring and i will not let them down.  i have some large shoes to fill because our ex-boss was so awesome!!  ๐Ÿ˜€
the first task i decided to take on was to organize the math closet it – dun dun dun!!!  i realize the word “closet” typically implies a small storage space…. FALSE.  this is a massive “closet” full of all things math!!
this photograph is a lie. there is also a wall of shelves to the left, and another wall of shelves to the right.  good times.
BUT i was able to cross two things off my list of things to do via ex-awesome-boss.
well, that was my work related stuff.  other things i have been up to include ichatting for the first time EVAH.  i’ve been a mac girl for 3 years and never used this program! how?!
so my cousin and i linked up, and chatted twice.  super fun times ๐Ÿ™‚
we had a little too much fun with the effects!
shortly after this photo i got distracted by the different backgrounds…
and grabbed my snorkel. hahaha
the best part was when i took my laptop over to my mom’s house where my grandparents are visiting.
they had a nice chat with my cousin and her mom [my aunt, their daughter].
and then i started messing with the settings ๐Ÿ˜€
it was so hilarious to see my grandparents laughing so hard!
and every time i switched the effect, like from “dent” to “stretch,” they were in hysterics!
in other news, daniel and i have been spending a lot of time with carlos and aida [you might remember them from our trip to spain].
there has been much music playing going on with these boys.
which means aida and i either watch/listen or hide in my sewing room and watch a movie ๐Ÿ™‚
she’s been getting along pretty well with the texas humidity/heat/random hot rain.
speaking of texas and weather fail….
what about those WINNERS????
i can’t even tell you how much fun i had reading all the little known facts!
[ok i kinda just did tell you..?]
i am definitely doing something like that again…LOVED IT.
two winners were selected using!!
i SOOO badly wish everyone could be a winner!  you’re all winners in my heart! hahaha
what better way to announce the winners than with
TWO little known facts
[relating to those shared by the winners!] ๐Ÿ™‚
what up tamara!!
i was in choir all through high school.  and even took voice lessons!
ever heard of sabado gigante?? i sang on that show!
hooray bethh!
i also used to have food allergies.
one time i ate some fresh pineapple and my lips started bleeding!

    P.S. Slightly off topic, but do your employers know you have a blog? Not that I think you've been inappropriate, I just always wonder about stuff like that . . .

  8. hey skooks! it was crazy random that i was chosen to sing. it was actually from the audience and on tv…but not from the stage!

    and i'm really careful about what i post.

  9. Aha I love your blog. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck with the new job! I'm sure you will be aaaaaaamazing. I can just imagine your grandparents on iChat! Haha. I looove iChat. I used to go on it all the time. It's so much fun.
