So I went out Thursday night to Downtown Memphis, and after a couple of hours I wanted to go home becaue of my shoes. If I put on cute shoes like these I would be dying after an hour. I thought I was smart by wearing kitten heels but no, it didn't matter. I was limping after 2 hours. Not cool when you are on the rooftop of the Peabody Hotel. or walking down Beale Street.

I see all these girl with stilettos on and I wonder how they do it. They don't look like they are in pain like me. They are not ready to go home early just to take their shoes off.

Is there a secret to wearing cute shoes like these?

It is 100 degrees..

Wow! It is so hot! It is so humid here! I finally go to go swimming today and only wished that the water was colder! My back got a little burned but it was so nice to be in the sun and water at the same time.
Not a whole lot planned for this week. Of course I will be working summer school in the mornings and hitting the gym afterwards. Some teachers and I have decided to go out and hit the town Thursday night. Otherwise I will be hanging out at home reading Twilight. I am finding that I can only read a few chapters at a time. I am so used to reading James Patterson's novels who writes mysteries. I guess it is because I am not used to reading this type of book. I love mysteries and love, love, love chick lit! What can I say? I just adore Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series!
Does anybody recommend any good books?

very behind..

I am so behind on my tivo! I am just now watching SYTYCD from last week! I love this show! I also need to watch Southern Belles and The Bachelorette. Plus I have started Twilight recently
(on chapter 6). It is so hard to find time to do any of this. It is summertime and I need to start relaxing!
Tomorrow at summer school we are taking the kids on a field trip to see the movie Up. It will be nice to do something different and be out of the classroom!

I don't know about anywhere else but here in Memphis the heat is unbearable! If we could figure out how to get rid of the humidity!

past couple of days..

So I survived my first week of summer school. It has been difficult to wake up because I am required to be there 45 minutes earlier than my regular school time. Because of waking up so early I have been absolutely exhausted. I have been taking short little power naps to try to help me out.
Thursday afternoon, Mr. M and I went out to the St. Jude Classic golf tournament. It was so humid, but we had a blast anyways drinking adult beverages and playing cornhole for the very first time. Let's just say we need to practice! But we enjoyed it so much that we plan on buying cornhole for the house! Then we met my parents over at Brooklyn Bridge Italian Restaurant for some New York Style Pizza. It was yummy! After school on Friday, I met my mom at her house and we alked over to the gof tournament again. We walked up just in time to see Phil Mickelson hit a few shots!It was a beautiful sunny day, but it was hot! By the time we got back I was so hot and sweaty that I layed down on her couch for a few minutes until I was woken up by my mom yelling at me to grab the dogs and head into the bathroom. the skies turned gray and the wind and rain started down. The tornado sirens went off and my mom's patio furniture (iron) went toppling over into her water fountain. Her umbrella was shredded. It turned out that we had about 80 mph winds. So much of Memphis was left without power and tree damage. After I went home, I found that my house was fine except for one big branch in our backyard. Luckily we still had power! It is supposed to be 90 degrees today! I couldn't imagine not having air conditioning!

So I have been blogging for quite a bit now and I still don't know how to do certain things like how to make a "blog roll". I want to put up the site I read on a daily basis. Also I don't know how to put pictures right in the middle. they always go to the side or above my posts. Is there a book that I can read to show me how to do this? Help!

the latest...

I am feeling so better! wow! I thought I was dying! It was horrible. This weekend I woke up early to go work a golf tournament as the beer cart girl. I just love driving the golf cart! It was so much fun! Now I understand why men go play every weekend. It is so quiet and peaceful and you get a nice breeze! And it is even better when you are drinking a beer! Unfortunately my right side is a little tanner now than my right side. oh well! I had fun anyway!

Tomorrow I start teaching summer school. Luckily it is only half days for four weeks. I have 7 kids in my class ranging from 5 years old - 12 years old. I am sure you are wondering why I have such a wide range of kids. I have all of the total communication (signing and speech) kids , but luckily they have similar goals like learning new vocabulary. Our theme is "Moving on Up" and we will take a field trip to see the movie "Up" later next week.

My hubby and I (with the help of a friend and the father in law) ripped out all of our carpeting this week. We think we know what we want to do about new flooring for the upstairs - wood laminate, but not sure what to do with the stairs. Our upstairs looks pretty pathetic right now as all we see and walk on is plywood. Hopefully our house will be looking beautiful again very soon!
