This scanner is not my friend

I am trying really hard to use self control and not bash this scanner on the table. Trust me, I am fully aware that it is the user that is the problem and not the machine, but that doesn't make me any less frustrated.

I am trying to scan my transcripts (which by the way are not nearly as good as I thought they were!) onto the computer so I can send them in for this CCCC job I am applying for. grrr... I was trying to figure it out on my own, but I think I'm missing some sort of cord or connector or something. It's about that time to bring in the husband to see what he can make out of this mess I made! ohhhh Wwwweeessss.....

Tomorrow 26 of my students are taking their AP Psychology exam. The exam that I've been preparing them for this entire year. Of course, I did miss an entire 6 weeks to be home with Eli, so that 6 weeks wasn't as awesomely full of good information as it should have been. I feel pretty confident in about 85% of the students who are taking the test. Meaning, I think that many could actually score a 4 or a 5 out of 5, which is greatness! We'll see... I have to stay completely away from the testing center, so if you remember, say a little prayer for them at 12:00, and I will be doing the same thing. :)

Eli is getting so good at eating from a spoon. Wes and I think he's like a little turtle. When I put the spoon in front of his face he kind of sticks his neck out a little and opens his mouth. It is so dang cute!! He ate the entire bowl this time before finishing his bottle and didn't get frustrated at all! ...he's growing up... We still only feed him from a spoon during one meal a day and from what I've read that's pretty normal. Apparently the purpose is just to get him accustomed to the whole idea of spoon feeding. We'll see...

Today Wes spent the whole day with Eli out and about. He had a band meeting and then a celebration lunch with KLTY because Ruin Me is now on the radio locally! Yay! So, Eli was out of the house from about 10:30 until 4:00 when they picked me up from work. Wes said Eli did great! Wes is such a sweet sweet dad. I know Eli is totally taken care of when he is with Wes. Jeff did have to show off his diaper changing skills in front of everyone...and of course the only changing table was in the women's restroom, so the picture you are seeing is real and not doctored in any way (smile). Thank you Sarah for holding the door open and standing guard of the bathroom!

I'm so glad we put Eli in his little blue Salamanca t-shirt from my cousin's trip to Spain. I have been saving it because A. you have to hand wash it and lay it out to dry (yuck) and B. I thought it was too big. I put it on him this morning because it has this big cute frog on it and I thought it would be perfect! Thank goodness I did because his little budda belly filled up the entire shirt! It was super cute though!

Hahaha.. Well, it is super sad, but it is good. AND, if you are a Grey's Anatomy fan Denny is in it.

BUT, I hope your first Mother's Day was beautiful and wonderful. Your precious son is ADORABLE!! I am captivated by his eyes... they are beautiful.

It's just me... said...

I love the picture of the guys in the girl's bathroom, everyone should have a changing table and a drive-up window.
