A Little Blog Game - Why Not, Right?

So, the mood of my blog has hardly been joyful the past few days.  I'm not apologizing - it's my life right now - can't do much about that.  Then I got a comment from a fellow blogger, and she had tagged me on her blog to play a little game.  It's a game in which I answer 4 questions she's asked of me.  I figure, why not...I need something to take my mind off of things, so here goes. 

The 4 questions come to me courtesy of Sarah at My F.A.B. Challenge:

1. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree, where would you spend it at and on what?
Hmm, this is tough one.  I would probably say some new furniture for my house and a nice vacation for my family.  Lord knows, we could all really use a getaway. 

2. What is one of the top 10 on your "bucket list"?
I'm going to have to say that probably the top of my bucket list would be to get a teaching job in a great school district.  I want, probably more than anything, to have my own classroom - and hopefully right after I graduate (wishful thinking). HA!

3. What is one thing you are looking FORWARD to over the holidays?
TIME OFF!!!  I love the holidays, but just having some well deserved time off with Hubby and the kids is all I need to really have a wonderful time.

4. Finish this sentence.. "All I want for Christmas is..."
TIME OFF!!  Nah, just kidding - I'm already getting that.  I guess I would have to say just a nice, family Christmas.  I don't really care if I get a single thing - I just want to be able to give my kids a good Christmas.  They deserve it...all of them.
That was fun!!  It's nice to take a break from writing about the crazy that is my life.  So, it's my turn to tag 4 blogs and think of 4 questions.  Here are my questions:
1.  What is the your favorite way to relax?
2.  If you could meet anyone - living or dead - who would it be and why?
3.  What is the kindest thing that a random stranger has ever done for you?
4.  If you could pick the occupation for your oldest child (or first child if you don't have kids), what would it be and why?
Here are the people that will hopefully answer the questions for me....
Drazil @ It's Just Me, Drazil and Shaniqua
Renee @ Renee's Ramblings
Maggie @ I'm Losing It
Colleen @ The Fit Bee

So, now on to my post.  Today was kind of a crazy day.  I woke up at 6:17am.  I usually leave my house at 6am.  Needless to say, I was frantic to get ready and get out the door.  To make matters worse, today was my first day teaching solo in my classroom - I could NOT be late.  I managed to make it into work at 7am - have no idea how I did it...but I did.

The day was really good.  The kids were awesome - behaved, worked hard...a true pleasure of a day.  I'm exhausted now, but it's not a bad kind of exhaustion. I feel like I worked hard today - but I enjoyed the day too...that kind of exhaustion I can live with.  Tonight I plan on working on some paperwork that I need to get done.  Tomorrow, I will be spending the entire day with Sanity.  We are going to hang out at a coffee shop all day and work on our big project that is due in a few weeks.  I need to get away from the house to work on it - because trying to work here is well, urm...difficult.  Getting to spend some quality time with Sanity will make it a lot nicer, too.

So, that's it for now -

"Breath.  As long as there is air coming out of your lungs - it's a good day."

Till next time.  ;)
