We all know Iam accident prone!!! Yep, I did it again. I had 15 necklaces to make, Im almost finished and bam, I mean BAM, I picked up the solder iron on the iron part, not the handle!
Oh,I thought I was going to puke!!!!
I have them bandaged, but Ill venture to the Dr tomorrow after school. I have a massage scheduled for 4:00. They have a 24 hr cancellation fee thingy. i called them tonight and hope they dont charge me!!!!

Our counselor at school, house burned this afternoon. I went out after school and its not at all liveable! It started in the backyard??? Most of the bedroom wing is gone. It was a big huge mess! Remember her and her son in your prayers, my finger too!

Then while I was browing at The Market on Owasso, a girl saw my necklace and wanted to get some for her shop in Claremore. She called to day and needa about 10 for a show on Saturday! I need to have them done by Friday. No problemo!!!! I can do it right up. I have all the parts cut out and ready to put together tomorrow night, then solder them Wednesday night, poof I'm done!

That is how I used to wake the boys every summer/springy day! So, right now is Cville mister sunshine is up and knocking on my door! Its 1:00 pm and I am in my jammies eating Special K cereal. I didnt sleep well last night at all, my best friend fibromyalgia came over to visit last night and spent the night and will not go home! That darn guy! So I have drugged myself and slept all morning!
Well, almost all morning. We started our end of the year testing in 2nd grade- the BEAR test today, So I got up, got a big fat bath, got dressed and gave the 1st part of the test,left school at 9:30 and came home to bed! I am getting ready too get on some shorts and get on the elliptical for about 20 minutes. I hate to, but I have to! Or otherwise I will twist and tighten up like an old prune and really be in trouble!
HGTV is all about "being green" today! Its earth day. hubs is a big earthy guy. We recycled years ago and still do today. He started the 1st recycling center here in Cville back when he was Mr. Mayor, (thats a whole other post). But where was I? oh yea, earth day, anyway Im cruisin around on the TV and there is earth day on HGTV, lots of fun stuff.
Better go, I have to have to get on that darn elliptical thing that has dust and laundry on it!

Potion #9.. or not

My loving sister found a new potion for me!!! Have you heard of it??? LIMU.

Anyway its suppose to be helpful for my fibromyalgia. Hmmmm most of the days I can manage it, but lately its been out of control and she is always on the outlook for potions for me. I just dont want to take Lyrica... there are way too many side effects! So any of you out there in blogville ever heard of this???? If so tell me what you know. Its $45. per bottle,but I will generally try anything once, well not liver, or peas, but almost anything else!

Hmm... you think that since my days have been out of control and BUSY, my fibro is doing a bit of correlation.

So let me hear is it good or not????

Im spinnnnnnningggggggg

Have a happy birthday and I will send you birthday kisses. Go ahead and put your feet up and be the queen of the house, cause its your day!

Spinning, my head is spinning, like a whirlpool its never ending... Do you remember that song? Or am I really showing that I am getting oldddddddddddd! Well 50 1/2 is not really old now is it?

Anywho, I feel like I am spinning out of control. Weddings and brides and a really old bride that has been married 2 times before, will be having 2 junior bridesmaids, 1 ring bearer, 1 candlelighter,1 flowergirl, and 4 matrons of honor.... Get REAL just run off! Oh my heavens, she is making me spinnnnnnn.

Today was busy at school also. We are doing Solar System and I make a mobile, there I go spinning again. The kids were wild because of the weather, then I had to be back there from 5:30-7:00 for Book Fair, educate the parents about next year, meet and greet the 2nd gr teachers. So I just stayed since it was hailing at 3:30 and I didnt want to get out. Yep, hailing while trying to get the kids on the bus!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fun!!!!!!!!!!

My first conversation today

Cade: Mrs Sheehan, are you having a bad hair day today

Me: I dont know am I

Cade: Looks like it

Me: hmmm

Cade: But you are pretty anyway.

I really though I looked OK at 8:30 am! Time for a new style, but I am letting it grow for my new style.... whats a girl to do?

Ok... sit down, I did it! Look below at the new purse I bought!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I major splurged, I mean major!


I even thought I might sleep with it, cause you know I am a purseaholic! Inside is the most beautiful stripes, hey you can even turn it inside out and carry it that way,so its really 2 purses in 1! How is that for a bargain, huh.......

Oh my heavenly days

You are not going to believe this, just sit right down and read this particular post.

Well, my new friend Amber at, has so diligently worked on my website for my biz. So, I lost it on Friday night, the website, not my mind, although Im not quite sure where it is either. But back to the wonderful news. So anyway I am always emailing her and whining and I thought to my little self today at lunch...Cracker Barrel, that I can do this. And sista's I DID IT.
The index page was blank, so I loaded the paper, loaded the links, loaded the text and everything, I even added these little bouncing visa/MC thingys. I dont remember when I did that but they are there. Whatever. So I did it, I loaded and everything and its up and running. Now I havent tried to buy something to see if the Paypal is working, or if the email is working, but I am SO PROUD of my little self.

Now, on to other things.... we went to Church, I planned a wedding, ate out, went to Home Depot, Reasors, and now I need to change the bed linens and finish the laundry. I am so excited with my little self that I can hardly contain my excitement!!!!!!!

Have a happy Monday...
Oh yea, I almost forgot, Cato in Owasso is having a pretty good sale. I got 3 shirts and 2 pair of earring for $40.00.

Im lost in cyber space

My website: http://www.queeniepdesigningdiva/ is lost in space.
I was just looking at it on Thursday and then Friday its gone. Its making me crazy. Its the cuuuutttest little place ever. Shabbee Chick made it for me and its way fun... but Site builder is a pain in the A$$!

I had a wedding this morning. It was so beautiful. The Groom is home on a 14 day leave from Iraq. He goes back in 10 days. It was a somewhat military wedding, he and his Sargent were in their 'dress greens' and it was the sweetest wedding. I hope they enjoy their 10 days.

My wedding assistant is quitting! yikes. I have about 8 girls in my SS Class that will help, but I was not really ready to train all of them yet!!!!!

Pray for Tuesday's Field trip! We are taking the second grade to the Drillers game. My kiddos have T-shirts that are red and say Sheehan's Sluggers. I can keep track of them better. I would rather not take parents, Oh that is a loaded statement on the web, but actually most of the kids act better without their parents. When momma and daddy are there they push my rules to the limit, I think to see what I will do. Except... for those kids that act OK whether mom is there or not!
At the Ball the other day one of the boys that I have wanted to send back to 1st grade since the second week of school, acted so awful! Dad, sister and sister's boyfriend were there. They did absolutely nothing! I had him come over and stand with me for 3 minutes, then 5 minute! If my child had ever done that, we would have gone home! But I guess that is why they have issues anyway.
Have you seen that the government is spending oodles of $$$ on trying to figure out what is wrong with education. I can probably tell them for nothing... But they will pay a 'team' to figure it out and it wont be fixed after that.
So here it goes
1. Get rid of tenure.
You do your job and do it well and you are Ok. You sit and do nothing and your butt is gone. And as many good teachers that are out there, there are some awful ones too!
2. Upgrade technology as much as sports.
Yea, We are getting turf on the football field. However, the computer are pitiful, we need either smart boards, or projectors in the classroom. We just past a bond for the turf, but, my school is selling Popsicles at last recess to raise money for projectors in the classroom.
3. Retain kids if they fail at the elementary level
Back when I was in school, yadda yadda, now really, you had to do the job to go on or you went to summer school or stayed in the same grade. Now its totally up to the parent! Whats that about.
4.Clean up the administrative level
Run each district like a business, we have way too many administrative/coaches running the show. This should be just like any other business!
5.The kids need to be accountable for their actions.
I get lost of notes from parents that with ball season, they dont have time to read and do their 5 minutes of math per night! Yep, but I bet they have time to practice BB and Soccer for 1 hour.
I love sports, but work come first.

OK... Im finished and jumping off my soap box. I have a PEO party to go get ready for. Bunco and potluck. My roasted potatoes are in the oven and its time to 'gussy up'. Well, a little bit!
Hubs is still in Tahlequah putting down new wood floors at the Methodist Childrens Home. So i am off to party by myself.

Have a good weekend

Now you see it... now you don't

Oops, the post I wrote yesterday about son #1 caused a bit of a stir at 'the corporate' office. I have really never said where son #1 is a broker, but yesterday I was so proud of their branch. They are taking 500 Teddy Bears to San Angelo, TX., to give to the children from the compound. So I told about it, not about exact information. But I did mention his Stock Company. Well, this morning 'corporate' was concerned when news station were contacting them about this activity. How did the news know... google told them. Yep, somehow google informed them about it from gleening the information from my blog. Watch out...someone is always watching!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So anyway I am still so proud of them, at this particular Brokerage Firm... not saying the name. It took son #1 a few minutes to figure out where it came from, so as soon as he called I deleted it from my blog.... whew!!!!!!!!!!! Be careful little fingers what you type, the big guys know everything!!!!!

Hmmm, maybe the will read my blog now .... hehehehe

Off to meet a bride at BA, but I put a big ole lasagna in the oven and its bubbling right up for supper. I have been hungry all day. You know when you just cant get enough to eat. I ate my sandwich at 11:00, then had a banana and apple at 12:00 and then a snack at 3:30. I 'm hungry again!!!!!!!1

Tomorrow I and going to a workshop at the 8th Floor, a consortium through the school. I will be learnin about PhotoShop! yippee. I have this all amazing thingy on my computer andI dont know what to do with it! Im gettin so smart. First an excel and now photoshop!

What do I mean.....

I always wondered what my name REALLY mean, what am I all about.
Hmmmm Here is goes:

What does your name mean:
What Penny Means
You are influential and persuasive. You tend to have a lot of power over people.Generally, you use your powers for good. You excel at solving other people's problems.Occasionally, you do get a little selfish and persuade people to do things that are only in your interest.You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.

Other news: Son #1's Mercedes was totaled this morning. Hmmm, he thinks he will get a less expensive vehicle since he will be travelling with his job. Poor guy, He really like driving that cool car, but maybe he will get one later .

I wish the weather would figure out what is going on. warm, cold, warm, cold.
I got out warm weather clothes and put on a cute little skirt and was cold all day at school.

My website is up and going . I need to tweek the first page and get the writing on the page, but its looking good. I have a bunch on new things to make, but I think that I will just slowly get some stuff up until summer break and then I wont be so stressed. Anywho... go have a look see, and remember I DID NOT MAKE THE SITE, ALL THE KUDDOS GO TO AMBER.. at She is AWESOME. I ll be sending her a little somethin in the old mail... nope I can tell you what, because then it wouldnt be a secret and I love to give away secrets to people. hehehehehe You will have to wait and see what she gets....

Better get my teeth brushed, I have PEO tonight. I could really really put on my jammies and just veg out, watch the BB game and all, but my little mind keeps telling me I need to go. So I will .
