I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed, so I just created a request for my classroom at DonorsChoose.org:
Jamming Out to Reading
Give to my classroom by March 13, 2014 and your donation will be doubled thanks to DonorsChoose.org. Just enter the code INSPIRE on the payment page and you’ll be matched dollar for dollar (up to $100).
If you donate $20 or more by March 31st I can get up to $1000 bonus dollars. If I get 25 people to donate $20 by March 13th, I will have fully funded this project in less than a week.
If you chip in to help my students, you’ll get awesome photos and our heartfelt thanks.
Thanks so much,
P.S. If you know anyone who may want to help my classroom, please pass this along!
Yesterday morning I woke up with the worst pain in my chest. I am not good with giving up animals. With a friends cat, with my mom’s dog in Phoenix and now Honey Bear. She has been sick for a few weeks. She has been losing weight and when my mom had her incident last week I think that is what set everything up for the ending.
Starting on Wednesday I noticed she hadn’t been eating. On Thursday and Friday all she did was drink water and throw it back up. I had originally made the appointment to take her in today, Sunday, but it wasn’t fair to keep her suffering.
Mark drove and I held her. The life was already out of her eyes and the tears were streaming out of mine. I couldn’t go back to watch her pass, i just gave her to the tech and left. I just couldn’t see her suffer anymore.
My mom has been a wreck and is blaming herself, but in all honesty, Honey was old and she was ready. She had a wonderful life and has lived in more states than I have. One good thing about having Honey in our house, I think it has convinced Mark to let me have a dog!
So my bubba dog left this earth a little over a month ago. It was about 6 months since I have seen him, and I really didn’t think about him until my Aunt texted me to let me know what happened. I didn’t know how much that little man meant to me until today when I have to say goodbye to another friend. More about that when the time comes. I love you big man, you will forever live in my heart and soul.
This year was supposed to be better.

Howdy. The wedding date has changed but will be better for everyone.
We are having the reception on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at Macayo’s on Central, in Phoenix. Invitations will be going on next month. If you’re lucky enough you’ll get an invite.
Denver friends: If you can’t make it to Phoenix, we are thinking of having a smaller party up here, TBD.
Other friends: We can’t accommodate everyone, stop being so greedy!
Aliens: We are hoping for an anal probing sometime in August, should we head to the midwest or can you come to us?
