High/Low Linky Party!

I am linking up today with Katie from Teacher to the Core for a High/Low Linky Party.  I absolutely, positively LOVE this idea!  Before I start my linky, I have to tell you why I love this idea so much.  Ever since my son was old enough to talk we have "played" high/low every night at dinner.  We each tell our high and low for the day.  Once the kids started school, we also added that everyone tells three things about their day.  {It was like pulling teeth getting my kids to tell me about school so this made it seem like more fun to tell mommy about their day;)}  So thank you, thank you, thank you Katie for this wonderful linky!!!!! :)




I have had a great month!!  Some of my highs are

  • I have lost 9 pounds through Weight Watchers!!!!  This is a huge deal for me.  The hubby and I have been doing it together and it has been amazing!
  • I am almost to 100 followers on my blog which is so fabulous.  Thank you all for your wonderful support and kind words.
  •  We had a wonderful 100th day celebration at school!  You can read all about it {here}.
  • I am just in awe of the wonderful friendships I have made through blogging.  I started my blog to collaborate with other teachers who were as passionate about teaching as I was.  I love that I found so many wonderful friends through this adventure!



I have had just a couple lows this month:

  • I am a worrier by nature {I totally get it from my adorable grandma! :)}  The worrying has gone into overload this month making me feel worried and stressed a lot of the month.  But I feel like the past few days, things have really started looking up.  I am trying to focus on all that is good in life and not worry.  It's hard, but I am trying!
  • It seems that everyone in the house has been sick at some point this month.  I hate when the sickness hits, but I think we are all on our way to being healthy again! 

Don't forget to check out all the fantastic giveaways that I posted about {here}.  Also, I have 99 followers.  Just one more and I will be having my own giveaway hopefully starting this weekend!  Check back this weekend to hear all about it!

  3. I love the idea of high/low for dinner conversation. What a wonderful thing to do with your family! I feel you on the worry thing. I worry/stress about everything. I have developed shingles because of my high stress levels. Crazy, right?!? When I became a mom, I notice that a little of the stress went away. I can't control everything, the house can't be clean all the time, b/c my family needs to be first. It has taken a little adjusting but it is getting better. :)

  5. Sorry that you have been so stressed and worried. I have definitely been there too. It seems like a lot of fellow teachers/bloggers are feeling the pressure this month. Hopefully February will bring some relief.

    Congrats on your weigh loss, having almost 100 followers, and on your other highs. I am definitely thankful for the friendships I am forming through blogging too.
