{Tidbit one} I had pizza today for breakfast. Why? Because I am tired of toast every morning. And cereal. So today has been a day of pizza and pizza only. I must admit, I am pretty tired of it. So, I will not have pizza for dinner.

{Tidbit two} I love, Love, LOVE my friends that make my day so enjoyable. I love Tuesdays and Thursdays best because that is when I get to talk to y'all.

{Tidbit three} I get to babysit today and tomorrow, which will be fun. I'm way over-payed, but if they want to overpay me, that's fine with me!

{Tidbit four} Its actually above 50º today. In fact, it is a lovely 61º.

{Tidbit five} School...don't get me started. Why in the world did I think that it would be easier after mid-terms? I must have forgotten that school is only over after finals.

Well, that's all the little tidbits I have for you today. I probably won't post tomorrow.

That's How you know...

You know you went to Veritas Press:
  •  If you have heard a teacher and a student argue with English and Scottish accents.
  • When the closest thing you have to a school shooting are Wimba hackers.
  • When going to your friend's house after school requires a plane ticket.
  • When you suffer from a disease called SOW and the cure is sleeping with your textbook under your pillow.
  • When you raise your hand and you forget to put it down.
  • When you hear the phrase "give your teacher an apple," you think of a computer instead of a fruit.
  • When you fix the whiteboard by leaving the room and coming back in.
  • When class is cancelled because the teacher can't get into the class room.
  • When you can have your hand up for 10 minutes AND be gone at the same time.
  • When birds fly at will around the class.
  • When you can wear your pajamas to class and no one knows.
  • When you're drawing or writing something on paper and you automatically try to find the save button.
  • When the teacher brags about being able to mute his mic and change his keyboard battery in 3 seconds, beating the time of Nascar pit stops.
  • When you find that you have an evil twin.
  • When your classmates have snow and it is still 70 degrees at your house.
  • When students come up with cool stuff like "The Twelve Days of Omnibus,” "The Cruncher Family,” and "Silent Class," and the teacher sings those songs during class.
  • If you've considered naming your breakout room team something along the lines of: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin and the Wimba the Sorting Hat is a scary thought.
  • When you are reading the same books as a sophomore or junior in college, but you are only in 9th grade.
  • When you watch YouTube videos on a whiteboard.
  • When a teacher can say, “Well, the Thebans are like the dwarves in the last battle…” and everyone knows what he’s talking about.
  • When someone had to explain to you how to properly pronounce "Ke$ha" or "Kanye" because you don't get out of your room much and the only Youtube videos you watch are usually BBC period dramas.
  • When you would rather listen to Mr. Etter than watch a movie.
  • If at the beginning of ever class a girl named Francis starts the class archive

A Birthday

Today you turn ten. I remember the day you came home from the hospital and how disappointed I was that you weren't four like me. But you sure were cute! (Even if you did cry every time I held you.)

When you were:
One: You would offer someone something, like a goldfish, and if they didn't eat it, you would throw a big fit. You took what was said about sharing very seriously.
Two: You LOVED reading. You would climb up on your changing table all the time with a book. ANd you would sit up there for hours to read it.
Three: You hated going up high, but you loved swinging.
Four: You started becoming a little musician. You were in your first opera, and I (still to this day) kinda regret that because now you insist on singing all the time. Oh well. Dad says it means you're happy...just no Justin Bieber, PLEASE!!!!
Five: You started piano lessons. You'd been picking out parts from my music by ear and mom finally decided to enroll you. You were SO was my teacher. :D
Six: I remember when you turned six, you turned into a "big girl." Sure, you already had a "big girl bed" but now you acted like a big girl. I have to confess that I laughed every time you said those big words that I only heard adults use.
Seven: As soon as you turned seven, you got a HUGE kick out of us being 7-11, like the gas station. Almost every time we drove past one, you would say "That's 7-11, like us!"
Eight: You started being a serious Webkinz gamer. You got several for Christmas and you were so excited...and I was jealous. hehe
Nine: You decided that you wanted a pool party for your birthday, but the weather wasn't warm enough (even in Texas) for us to have one outside, so you waited until August, which, Is the month of my birthday...So we had a joint party. ^^
Now you are ten. Double Digits. Wow! I still don't know where the time went.
I love you, Girly.

The Explanation

I've been keeping another blog just for my personal use for about two weeks now, just to teach me that I need to post almost everyday, even if its just in little blurbs. 

The title of the blog is Do You Believe In Magic. Just so you know, I don't really, but its after one of my favorite songs by the Lovin' Spoonful. You've probably heard it before. After all, it is on the Parent Trap, and anyone who hasn't seen that is...shudders...I hate to think about it. But anyway, that is why I named it the way I did.

I will do my best to post as much as I can. Probably not everyday, but whenever I can. 

Hope you enjoy reading it.
