Bathroom light

I want this light in my bathroom. Hubby says it won't be enough light over the sink. I think it will. Its at IKEA and only $40.00. We are going to Dallas/Frisco for Thanksgiving. I'm thinking I might just get it. Don't you think it would look cuuuuuuute in my bathroom. The bathroom is off the bedroom, duh! The bedroom is red toile and the bathroom is white with toile, too. Im think he is WRONG!! yep, that's what I think.

Anywho, I got the most wonderfully funny email from my swap partner. We are swapping Christmas garlands. She is from Australia. How fun will this be? Of all the girlies in the big ole world we are so alike. We both like fru fru, glitter and shabby stuff. Go figure! I am going to start on her garland this weekend and get it in the mail on Monday.

I have a bunch of necklaces I am going to work on this weekend. I have a wedding to do on Friday night, then its relax weekend." Craft City" here I come. I am going to move the TV back into the craft room, then get busy.

I need, need some advise! Ok here it goes. I have taught for 29 years. Good gosh! that's forever. anyway this class is so different. I have 20 kiddos. About 3 of them read on a 4-6 gr level, 5 on 3-5gr level , 3or 4 on 2-4th gr level and 5 below level, 2 at a preprimer level. I have done everything I can think of! Peer tutor, pref seating, treats, bribes, etc, I can't motivate these kids. We do AR each day. They have to have 10pts per month. At the end of the month, those that have the pts can have lunch with me and I bring dessert. Nope, they don't care! I have 2 of the 20 kids!!!! Yep, 2! What is the deal?? Today we were working on consonant clusters. I asked 6 different kids what a consonant is... they didn't know. I went over it, asked the same kids the same question, they didn't know. This went on 2 more times. I finally got so aggravated, I kept them in from art class and they wrote the definition of consonant 10 time. After that 3 of them still could not tell me! Good golly!!!!!! HELP. I moved all the desk from groups to rows. I HATE ROWS!!!!!!! But I am at a loss as to what to do. They will not pay attention to me. I don't use a lot of paper/pencil work,I use more hand on, they still play around and fight and he took something or stare into the air!!!! I'm loosing it!!!!!!!! you think.
Anyway who has a solution????

Ok enough ranting, the Bachelor comes on in a minute and I need to get my jammies on. Pronto
