That’s how I feel. Super hyper. I’ve been off the coffee for a while now but today I decide wth.

My treat was cafe olla … from a drink cart parked in front of the building. Sweet exilir with cinnamon, cloves, ginger and citrus. It dampened my appetite and I skipped breakfast. Mistake number 1.

I ate two homemade ham pockets for lunch. Not filling. But something on my stomach. Yes I said on not in … it’s a southern thing … like y’all. I worked through lunch to leave early to get ready for tomorrow.

Went to Walmart for donuts 🍩 and a magnifying glass 🔍. One of these things is not like the other. Lol. Only the donuts are for JA in a day. I was Dizzy and spinning through Wally World and had a Godly experience that I will write about separately. Then I headed home.

Went right back to work. So much for leaving early. I just can’t take a real day off. I’ve already hit my 40. But it was good. My coworker who caught me and made me stay late was happy for me about my JA day.

Aww 🥰 Jilly. You’ll get paid in HUGS 🤗 currency 💴!!

And it’s that the BEST kind!!

As always more to come.

Hey Y’all I’m Verklempt But Happy Verklempt

Tomorrow I am participating in JA in a Day.  For those who don’t know, JA is short for Junior Achievement.  For those who don’t know, I’ve always wanted to be a teacher.  For those who don’t know, JA in a Day lets me bring real life lessons in civics and finance to the classroom.  For those you don’t know, children are our future ….

Cue music … teach them well and let them lead the way …  show them all the beauty they possess inside … give them a sense of pride to make it easier …

Sing It! Ms. Houston.  See y’all I’m verklempt!!!!

And enough with for those who don’t know Jilly Beans.  I was told once that writing or speaking like that is condescending.  I do not want to be that … condescending.  

Anyway, moving along.  I am super excited that I will have 2nd graders.  The year before all that standardized testing baloney.  I can’t wait to hear the clamoring and they “Hey Miss” to get my attention.  I can’t wait to be with those little sponges who are sweet and innocent and full of hope.  Remember that folks?  Before the world was the world to us.  I also can’t wait to eat in the cafeteria.  Last time I did this, I took my lunch.  Then I had nostalgia envy.  I bet some are cringing but not me.  Yummy!

And now that you’ve had your quota of I can’t wait! from me, I will say toodle-loo, ta-ta and au revoir.  See ya later, unless you see me first. 🙂

As always, more to come.
