Killing two Birds...and a Slice

I just found Natalies Linky Party Over at What theTeacher Wants, and decided since Im already posting my ten days of Thankfulness at Teacher Authors why not kill two birds with one stone or should I sayturkeys?
Natalie is asking us to link up and post what we are thankful for in our classrooms, blogging world, life, etc. So today I am thankful I found Natalies linky party and am not too late to link up! Link up yourself over at What the Teacher Wants. Youll be thankful you did!
1.                         What I am most thankful for in my classroom?
These past few weeks I have been very thankful for my sweet student- teacher Lindsay. She has kept me sane lately and kept my kiddos learning while I have worked on my papers for my class. It has been hard staying away while she does the teaching, but thats just because she so fun to hang out with.
 What person (people) I am most thankful for?
This one is pretty easy my hubby has been my best friend, and love of my life for over 26 years now and I dont know where Id be, or what Id do without him. My kids are the light of my life, and the reason I want to do more- be more. They are the young adults every mother dreams their child to be some day. They have always been, and always will be the best part of our life. My teaching buddy B. Klinger keeps me laughing and loving my job. My brothers and their families are my favorite place to visit, and my favorite visitors at our home. And my mom who is always there for me (and my kids), but as moms go doesnt hear often enough how much she means to me, or how much I appreciate her.
    What 3 blogs am I most thankful for?

I am thankful for the Two Writing Teachers who opened my eyes to the blogging world, and inspired me to write.

 Teacher Dance who always has such positive, nice comments for me- even when I call her by my teaching buddys name (Barbara) instead of her name (Linda).

And Miss Preppy she has great ideas and fun posts.  She always has great math ideas, which I feel is my week spot.               

    What guilty pleasure am I most thankful for?
Diet Pepsi, and Cosmic Brownies. Yep there I admitted it, Cosmic Brownies are my one chocolate fix every month week. Those great big ones from the local Convenience store, .75 cents of pure artificial color, flavor, and comfort all wrapped up in cellophane.

   What am I most thankful for?
My family, friends, job, home, and this wonderful life I have been blessed with.  



  1. I had a chuckle when I saw you were killing two birds (turkeys this time) with one blog. Fun fun! And then I read your words & saw my name. It's been a very long day today, as you can see because I'm commenting so late. Thank you for the special words, Tammy. You capped the day where I needed a boost. I am grateful! The other blessings you have are special, too, but especially those brownies. I'm sure I couldn't resist either. Happy Thanksgiving!
