FRIyay funYAY time!!!

If you are a new reader, most Fridays (unless I get super busy with grad school work, or work work) I post funny and/or inspirational stuff I find online. It is mainly book humor and teacher humor (former teacher here), but also some life stuff thrown in. Enjoy the ride that is FriYay FunYay!

And I picked up a copy of the documentary, Google Me! I caught up on Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix and Trailer Park Boys. I love comedies. And on Hulu I watched the new season of Roseanne. It was like visiting a crazy, old friend again. I think since I work so much on school that it is good to have light entertainment in my life right now. What are you watching??

The Bunny Hop!

This is me as the Easter Bunny! I hope you had a very Hoppy Easter!
The weather here was a little “ew” but we still had a nice family day together. My little H at age 13 doesn’t participate in egg hunts anymore but he DID still want a basket with goodies and candy, of course.
Pollen levels have been scary here in Oklahoma and the teacher strike started yesterday. Allergies have been taking a toll on us lately. Today we called an air duct cleaning business and they will be out in a week or two to clear our ducts. This should help a little. We are also painting, painting, painting. Today the bedroom becomes berry pink. And then we add the glitter! Photos coming soon.
In about a month I will be graduating for the 4th time in my life! I can’t wait to get my second Master’s Degree in my hands! With all my degrees I have been in school 8 years total. I should be a doctor by now lol. One of my library patrons is actually encouraging me to get my doctorate but I will probably wait until Mr. H turns 18. I would like to spend more time with family and less on studies before he is an adult. They really do grow so fast!
Have a great day. I hope the allergy monsters stay away from you. I am off to do school work now!! I have a research paper to write on culture at the moment. Coffee, here I come!
