the mighty hunter returns

When Dewy finally reached service, and started getting the onslaught of texts I'd been sending him for over a week, he gave his hot little number a call--that's obviously me.  When I picked up the phone, a little too eagerly, and after a few inappropriate comments, the following conversation ensued:

Me: So....?
Dewy: Jake shot a deer!
Me: Why would I care what Jake shot? Did you shoot anything?
Dewy: Well, no.  But I have a lot of stories!
Me: That is NOT why we go hunting, dear. Nor is that a legitimate reason to endanger the lives of your children.

When Dewy comes off the mountain, he's like a new man.  He is more patient.  I believe this comes from the massive amount of patience required to hike for miles and pursue large game.  Or at least that is how he describes it... "Do you know how hard it is? How close you have to get to the elk without them seeing, hearing, or smelling you?" Well honey, I'm smelling you right now, and I can only imagine what is causing your problems up there.  He is more loving.  I believe this comes from being in camp with five men for over a week.  One of the texts I sent him said, "I think it's time to come home now.  I look hot today...way hotter than Jake or Tyson.  Plus, boobs."  This also could have come from the fact that one of the guys in camp left his wife an son a surprise for every day he was gone, and the guilt was getting to the rest of the men when they found out.  Dewy came home to a drained bank account, and a mountain of things from Victoria's Secret--none of which he will appreciate--when I found that out.  Ok let's be honest...I had already spent that money before I knew, and Dewy is such a hunk that I didn't even care.  He thinks more clearly.  This is great because after 8 days of being in survival mode over here, we need someone who can think clearly.  There's something about fresh air and unplugging from the world that really helps one focus.  Not enough to entice me to any mountain, but whatever.  That is what a pedicure is for.  

It doesn't matter if he brings home the bacon or just a mountain of disgusting laundry.  He is happier, more content, and rejuvenated, and that is the reason I will always support his hunting hobbies.  Also, when we built this house and I tripled our kitchen budget--oops--he only agreed to it if I swore I would never complain when he went hunting.  So there's that.

you little smarty pants.

I'm not sure if you've heard or not, but I'm a teacher.  If you're new here, welcome! and buckle up because I talk about my job A LOT.  I feel very passionate about education, and have some strong opinions about pedagogy, testing, homework, and more. I'm also a strong advocate for teachers.  My poor boys are so screwed.  I'd like to think I'll always have their backs when it comes to dealing with issues at school, but if they are being bone heads to their teachers... beware the wrath of this mom-teacher.  I have a feeling I'll be taking the side of the teacher. Whatever.  My oldest son is in second grade and participating in a dual immersion program at school.  This means that half of his day is learning language arts and reading in English, and half of his day is spent learning science and math in Spanish.  I'm talking no English speaking is allowed.  I have great things to say about this program, and some negative things, but overall it is work

friday favorites instagram edition.

I spend unhealthy amounts of time scrolling through Instagram, and I'm only kind of sorry about it.  I follow a few hundred accounts, but I have my select favorites.  Today for Friday Favorites, I've compiled an Instagram edition where I share my favorite accounts and why. 1. Kate Call @latewithkate Ok you guys... I discovered this account when I was turned on to her story about accidentally brushing her teeth with what she assumed was toothpaste, and actually wasn't.  I thought I was going to die laughing.  Kate is beautiful, a mom of four girls--if I'm allowed to have favorites then #naughtynova is mine--Target obsessed, and has dance moves to rival all the acts on World of Dance.  The woman literally has me spitting out my drinks 90% of the time--and we all know how serious that must be.  She posts videos of her and her husband attempting couples yoga poses, and all of her stories are hilarious.  From when she thought her OBGYN called her "beefy" to he

i never wanted to be a teacher, but here we are

I've taught English for almost a decade.  For a while it was 8th and 9th grade, but for the last six years I have taught strictly 9th and 9th grade honors English.  I've also coached cheerleading and been the student government advisor, which means that over the course of the last nine years I have worked with the best this junior high has to offer.  Don't get me wrong, all 15 year old kids can be squirrly and obnoxious, but for the most part--if you smack them around a little--they are so fun. Those elementary teachers, though? They are the real heroes. If you screw up a kid in elementary, they are screwed for life... at my job, they come already screwed up.  Way less pressure that way. I'm obviously kind of kidding. My days are mostly the same.  Instruction, grading, a hormonal girl crying, pulling two kids away from each other as they try to make out in  the hall--my kids know my rules on PDA: 1. you must be good looking and 2. you must be good at it, and they are
