Fill in the _________ Friday and randomness!

TGIF!  The first half of this week went super slow for me but after Wednesday it went super fast!  I like weeks like that :) 

First, randomness:
I have been wanting a deeper skillet with a lid for a long time.  I find them everywhere but they're either A.) in a set and I only want the one pan or B.) too expensive for a non-cook like myself!  I finally found a cheap one at Big Lots and picked it up!  I'm planning on trying a new recipe next week to test it out!'s the little things :)
Let me preface this next story by telling you all that one of my students is a bit off the wall.  I would love to see inside his brain to see what the heck is going on!  Today we read the book Stuff!  Reduce, Reuse, Recycle by Steven Kroll.  If you don't know the book, it's about a rat named Pinch (a pack rat, actually) who has too much stuff in his house so he decides to sell it in a tag sale with his neighbor friends.  As we were reading, this is what my 3rd grade student told me: "If I were Pinch, I'd keep all of the stuff!  I would put it in my man cave.  First I would have to dig a hole in the ground for all the stuff.  That would be my man cave.  I would also have a computer.  And my batman costume!  My brother has a Robin costume so he could come too.  And it would actually be called the Bat Cave!  And we would find girlfriends!  ....But not until the future."  Seriously, this type of stuff cracks me up!  

I'm linking up (for the first time) with Lauren at The Little Things We Do for Fill in the Blank Friday!

1.   The phrase or punctuation I overuse most is   probably some sort of punctuation like ... or - or !!  I try to be too expressive on my blog and in emails. :)  I also say "seriously?" a TON.

2.  Today I am thankful for    my job. It is so hard to find a teaching job these days and I'm thankful to not only have a job, but have a job I love.

3.  My best friend is    my husband!  I'm so lucky to have found him and I love hanging out with him...probably too much!

4.  A quirky thing about me is     I am very OCD but my bedroom is almost always messy.  I'm also guilty of making a million different to-do lists.  I have one at school (sometimes 2), one on my nightstand, one in my office, one downstairs.  It's ridiculous!

5.  This weekend I     am going to go to hang out with some good friends and have family over for a Sunday dinner.  I also plan to make some new games for school.

6.  Something that worries me is   SB5 in Ohio.  If you don't know, google it!

7.  On my night stand you would find  A book (currently House Rules by Jodi Piccoult), a coaster usually with a bottle of water, cell charger, lamp, Olbas oil, chapstick, TV remote, light/fan remote, to-do list in a cute journal with pen, and sometimes random things like coins or bobby pins.

In other random news, today is an awful day for weather.  It has been rainy, wet and gloomy ALL day.  I went home for lunch and really just wanted to stay with my cuddle-bug pups.  So hard to resist!  (Sorry for the awful pic..)

This is where the pups like to store one of their favorite toys during dinner time.  They seriously can't let it out of their sight!
