A little weekend fun

Well what a rainy several days it has been! It is gorgeous outside today but evidently that won't last long... and while it is sunny.. I am inside!
Last weekend we hit Friday worn out!! Steve and I went and got some dinner and then settled in to a redbox movie! Steve had to work on Saturday morning so we made it a somewhat early night.
I got a few things done on Saturday and then Steve got off work and we headed to Hagerman wildlife refuge. We didn't get to see much because it was closed for a hunt in many of the areas we like to go find deer.
Sunday was a great day of worship and lunch with the kids!
This week has started with a heavy load on Monday.
I guess we will be watching for storms tonight and going into Wednesday.

New Profile picture

I started with Plexus on Dec 1 2014.... I have seen transformation over the months with being able to wear smaller jeans... and my shirts fitting better... one of the things I get lots of comments is how my face is slimming.. I put this picture on FB yesterday just to change my profile picture and ended up with lots of comments and likes...74 likes... WOW... I was shocked!!! I am pretty excited of the changes in my skin and slimming of my cheeks... Plexus has just been so good for me!!! I am fixing to be a grandmom so I got to lose weight, have energy and be ready to enjoy all that goes with that... and if no one believes I'm old enough to be a grandmother I am ok with that too! LOL!

Spring Break

Well Spring Break is over! We had fun! The first part of the week was kinda laid back stuff- finishing up a bit of cleaning around the house but then Steve took off work the last part of the week.
We started by going to the movies on Thursday night- Steve decided to take me to see Cinderella- it was really good!
Friday we got up and had some Starbuck's on our way west out of town to get out of the rain and drizzle!
We stopped at Muenester at Fisher's and got cheese... then we saw the Red Necks with Paychecks vehicles pulling in! We had to check it out! While going out to Saint Jo where the event was coming together we saw the field of VW bugs! LOL! funny what some people will put out for our amusement!
We continued our journey to Lawton Ok... we were looking for Medicine Park- this was the first cobblestone community in Ok- it was pretty unique- we walked down the water's edge and checked out the ducks, geese and waterfalls.
Then we went into the Wichita Wildlife refuge and drove to the top of Mount Scott. It was so pretty looking down over the lakes- it was very very windy and cool up there.
After coming down the mountain we stopped by the visitors center and as we were leaving the park we came dangerously close to a wild buffalo- he seemed calm enough until there were cars on either side of him then you could tell he was agitated! We decided to stay in the car at that point! LOL! We came home through Davis and stopped and loaded up on fried pies! yum yum!
Saturday started another adventure- of course after breakfast at home from the bacon we picked up at Fisher's we went to Starbuck's and Lowes. Then we decided we would investigate the Wildlife refuge at Tishomingo! It was so different from yesterday's travels. We did see deer on our adventure and underwater buildings of the Washita Farms but mainly we laughed as our truck became covered in mud on those back roads. We learned where Bee and Butcher Pen Oklahoma was! Not that we will ever need to know again! LOL! I've added pictures of Medicine park and the buffalo at Wichita Wildlife refuge as well as the pink pistol car in Tishomingo and the deer at the Washita Wildlife refuge.
Now it is back to Monday and back to work! Until our next adventure!!!

SNOW DAY!

Well the sleet started coming down Sunday night while we were at church. We had some things come up that we helped with so we didn't get home till after 8pm. Many schools were already canceling Monday morning classes.
Monday morning was very icy and lots of reports of accidents were coming in- glad we were home- it didn't get above freezing all day so by around 4pm the report that schools would not open on Tuesday was already going out! 2 days off for ice!
I got some things caught up around the house and then Tuesday night we ventured out... the roads were pretty clear- it had got just above freezing so we went out for dinner and stopped at a couple of stores... made a stop at Walmart- GRRRRR.... shelves were pretty bare... I got the things I wanted and went to checkout... several lines were working but I noticed their light was not on so I looked until I found a cash register with her light on and got in line... we waited while she worked with the guy at the register.. one more was in front of me and after a little while he turned around and said.. I am last in line... my reply was.. Oh.. I got here when her light was still on.. and then the cashier began to tell me she knew it was on but it was blinking and shouldn't have been on... REALLY!!!! now that I have stood in line and the other lines have gotten so long they were back to the clothes... AND I didn't have that many items as it was... GRRR! I took my buggy to a manager to explain to him what had happened.. thinking he would care... he didn't really care!!! So I left my stuff with him....
Anyway, on to the snow days... everyone was watching for snow on Wednesday morning but the storm shifted or slowed or something... funny lots of schools had a delay start so they will be going in while it is snowing... we came in normal time while it is sleeting.. now the kids are just loving watching the snow through the windows!
I guess winter isn't finished with us yet... a winter mix is expected on Friday!!!
We had a baby shower on Saturday for Bobbie.... Andy started his new job on Monday.. well.. after ice it was Tuesday.....We got to hang out with Ashley a bit for the shower...
On Saturday our sweet buddy Toby passed away- he had been in our family about 14 years.. he had gotten so feeble... it was sad watching him go...we tried to make him comfortable in a blanket and Steve had to bury him while we were at the baby shower... those things are always hard on all of us! They are family too!
Steve had just made the comment Friday night about if we would need to start looking for a Sheltie.. we have talked about getting a little guy to be a buddy to Beau... I don't know.. sometimes I say yes.. sometimes I say no.. but in looking at the prices we might have to pass... why are people selling pets for $600 and up??? Oh well.. if the right dog comes around we shall see!!! He has to enjoy hanging out with us and camping!! and of course.. he has to like Beau!

and YES... I want to build a snowman!!! :)

Great Valentine Weekend!

What a GREAT valentine weekend! Friday I got home to beautiful flowers from my sweetie! Then we headed off for an awesome dinner at Tokyo! After that we were a little late for movies so I got to go shopping for a few things I had been thinking I wanted... ceramic curling wand, cologne and a smart watch. Steve also went shopping... for a new tv! LOL! billboard size!! LOL!
Saturday was a lazy day around the house but Steve cooked us an awesome breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage and heart shaped pancakes! We headed out on an adventure late afternoon thinking we would eat some Huck's catfish and catch that movie again. Little did we know that LOTS of people were going to Huck's for Valentine day.. and going early...so we headed out to find a different place rather than waiting an hour. We found ourselves across the dam at Wendy's catfish... it wasn't anything fancy but we enjoyed our drive and had the chance to just talk! After we finished and headed back to Sherman we realized we had missed the movie again..so we had a few stops to make at Lowe's and Gander Mountain before heading home to relax and get ready for worship the next morning.



I had Monday off so I decided to make stew and cornbread for such a cold day... but I also made a great Mexican corn dip to start us off and finished with a sopapilla cheese cake! It was yummy.. and then off to a Plexus meeting I went!

Where did last week go?

WOW! what a whirlwind kind of week! I started the week on Sunday enjoying snacks and football with the family... well... I enjoyed the snacks! LOL
On Monday I left for my annual trip to Austin to attend TCEA and present on Wednesday "A Roadmap to a Digital Classroom"
Tuesday was lots of classes and waiting in lines to get into classes.... it was a full day and we ended by going to a Vendor event for Solid Borders/Baracuda. Wednesday I went to the opening keynote by Bill Nye the Science guy... I was disappointed that he had an agenda to share... and yes.. I do believe the Bible and the flood just in case he is reading my blog! I gave my presentation later and I think it went pretty good! No pressure but my boss was in there and so was a represenative from Rennisance Learning- I am a part of the Distinguished Educators group- hope I didn't disappoint! :)
We finished Wednesday night by stopping in for the Discovery education dinner and then the LightSpeed social... busy busy day! Thursday started out busy but then I found myself at a lunch with Renaissance learning at Fogo De Chao for a fabulous lunch and great presentation about a software product they want me to try out! We were volunteers at the TCEA social that night and took tickets at the door before heading home to crash!
Friday was a long trip home... we ended up leaving a little early but found ourselves stopping and going through the Dr Pepper museum on the way home.. so a little longer trip than I expected! ;)
Here we are past the weekend which was full in itself.... we are looking at music and getting ready for worship rehearsal at Trinity and I am back at working teaching lots of classes!
Everyone in the schools seems to be getting sick with Flu and Strep...so far that has stayed out of our house.. we just keep taking our Plexus X Factor vitamins, Probio5 and Plexus Slim and so far so good!!! Over a year of health and feeling great!!! I don't think I could have kept up with last week's busy schedule without it...

The week is nearing the weekend.....

Well this week is getting closer and closer to the Weekend.
Ashley will have a doctor's appointment tomorrow for what would have been a gender reveal ultrasound... now it will just be a fun look because they have been told the baby is a little boy! Cylus Brennan Jesko.

Andy and Bobbie are coming back home after checking out a job in Coalgate Ok. They are still looking for work- I know they are stressed and I hope they are able to find something very soon!

I will be packing to go to Austin and present at TCEA. My presentation A Roadmap to a Digital Classroom will be fun... I hope! :)

We have hired someone new for one of our schools technology. I am guessing this will be the last week we fill in over there...

I am ready for the weekend.. there have been a few stressers along the way since Christmas that has made feeling rested not as easy... I am still sleeping good and have energy thanks to Plexus.. but just not as relaxed feeling... need to just lay those things down!!!
