The ABC's of Web Surfing

Because Em asked for it, here's a silly A-Z list of my most visited websites. These are the sites that pop up in my firefox browser when I type the letter.
C-Connect email system home computer access
D-DLTK. Alphabet activities for my classroom.
E-my tumbler, which I haven't really used since I started using pinterest.
I-my blog. you're here already.
J-JBS Inspiration blog
K-Knitty Bitties blog
L-our mortgage company
M-my Plymouth, grad school log in page
N-Nutwood, Scarlet's blog from her 30 Days of Gratitude last November. Clearly I don't go to many N sites.
O-Old Navy. Maternity clothes shopping.
P-Pinterest. My new time suck.
Q-Quince & Co. Yarn I'd love to own.
R-Ruche. I'm surprised Ravelry comes up second. I think I visit that way more often than Ruche.
S-Studio Calico
T-Twitter. Which is odd since I usually use TweetDeck. Two Peas comes up second.
U-USAA. Our banking and insurance
V-Victoria's Secret. I think this is left from Christmas shopping.
X-odd. nothing with X actually comes up. First its a link to Amazon's Best of 2010 list and next is a link to this Martha Stewart embellished sweater tutorial.
Y-You tube. Specifically, this video of an autism classroom. Again, this is odd, since I've viewed plenty of things on You Tube since I watched this video back in October or so.

There you have it. The ins and outs of my internet preferences. Because I know you really wanted to know this. Maybe it gives you some insight into me. Maybe you want to play along too. Just for fun.

The 10

It's been awhile since I posted a Tuesday 10. Here's 10 things from my day today:

1. No teaching today. Thinking Maps Follow Up training instead.

2. Mexican food for lunch. Got an hour and 10 minutes for lunch today, so I went out with a few other teachers from the training. Sure beats my usual yogurt and fruit at my desk working lunches.

3. Thankfully got my progress reports done yesterday after school so I didn't need to use my hour lunch for meeting today's deadline.

4. Had a little time to kill after the training and before my after school music therapy client, so I did a little baby shopping. Had a shower gift to buy for a fellow teacher. She's having a girl. I may have looked at the boy stuff too. I may have purchased some cute little Calvin Klein denim overalls. They were $10 and too cute to pass up.

5. My4 year old client had a serious case of the giggles. I think he was high from all the sugar he'd has as a result of spring break intensive potty training day 2. Getting him to focus on anything productive was a little ridiculous.

6. Since I was under the weather and didn't grocery shop this weekend, I got take out from Paradise Bakery on the way home. Veggies sandwiches and citrus seem to be my favorites these days. That an ice cream.

7. Speaking of ice cream, I may have just eaten a small bowl of mint chocolate chip.

8. My belly totally itches.

9. New simplyArTistiC prompt went up today. Right now we are doing magazine inspiration. Here's mine:

and since I forgot to post it, here's mine from the last prompt:

You should come play along.

10. Headed to bed very soon. My eyelids have been very heavy all day. Something to do with coughing half the night and waking up with leg cramps early in the morning (seems to be a routine thing lately. don't like it).

Happy Tuesday!

Confessions of a Very Tired Pregnant Lady

  • I intended to take lots of photos of myself to document my pregnancy. Hasn't happened. I've only taken a few. The above picture was taken two weeks ago. I was 20 weeks and desperately needed a hair cut.
  • I am eating a lot of ice cream. I think I'm making up for the reflux induced limited dairy diet I have had for the past couple of years.
  • Registering for baby stuff totally overwhelms me. Too many decisions.
  • I waste a lot of time looking at baby stuff. Mostly decor stuff. And clothes. And knitting patterns.
  • My house has been completely neglected. It's a mess. Total and complete disaster. Though this may have more to do with the window/sliding glass door installation and the pack rat/mess making husband than with my lack of energy or motivation.
  • I'm worried about getting everything done before the baby comes.
  • I spend a lot of time in bed with my laptop...though I'm usually doing school work.
  • I don't get much of anything done after 7:00 pm, except maybe knitting and reading and important online baby research.
  • I think the changes to my body are totally bizarre.
  • I find myself rubbing my belly, just because its there.
  • I may be in over my head with commitments. Not a whole lot I can do about it though, other than take a deep breath and make it work.
  • I'm looking forward to June. I know I'll be super uncomfortable pregnant, but it may be the only time I can focus totally on me and preparing for the baby.
