7 more things....

  1. I would get a massage every day if I could afford it. I’m not talking the quickie, 15-minute, mall-court chair massage. I’m talking the 60+ minute, therapeutic, relax the snot out of you massage. What I wouldn’t give for one right now……

  1. I’m slowly becoming addicted to the TLC network. It started with What Not to Wear and has morphed into everything from Say Yes to the Dress to The Little Couple, and soooo much more! My most guilty pleasure is Toddlers in Tiaras…which I’m sure is televised child abuse…..but I can’t stop! Help!

  1. I have a fear of movie theater bathrooms. When I was in 5th grade, I went to a movie theater for a friend’s birthday party. During the movie I “had to go” and while I was washing my hands afterward I noticed I was standing next to a guy! All of a sudden it all hits me….Oh God! That’s why the first toilet looked weird! It was urinal! Oh God! I’m in the men’s room! I practically ran back to the theater and had a hard time talking for the rest of the day. I was mortified! To this day I will stare at the sign just to make sure that it says “Women.”

  1. My ultimate dream is to retire to a huge cabin by a lake in the woods of Wisconsin. Probably will never happen seeing as I’m a teacher in Illinois and the State has already spent my retirement money before I’ve even had a chance to earn it. :(

  1. I really don’t like tiny dogs. They yip. They nip. They don’t freakin’ listen!!! If you have a well-behaved tiny dog, consider yourself appreciated by me. I honestly don’t know why people don’t bother to train little dogs.

  1. 4-years ago, during my first year of teaching, I once told a third-grader to “Grow up already!” It was a moment of pure frustration. I regretted it the moment it came out of my mouth. Oops!

  1. I will most likely be up at the crack of dawn to watch Prince William and Kate Middleton get married in April. I’m a big Royal freak. When all my 8th grade friends were covering their lockers with Backstreet Boys and N*Sync posters…I was covering mine with Prince William pictures. Totally thought we’d meet someday…..guess that ain’t happening :)

Well....there you have it...7 more things about little 'ol me :)

Run, Courtney, Run

Looking forward to reading your 7 things :)


  1. Nice list! Well, I have to say I have two very well behaved little dogs. They don't yip, they don't jump and come when they are called.

    I love that you told a 3rd grader to "grow up." I yelled at one of my kids in my last job to just "sit of your ass." Yeah, not one of my finer moments and like you instantly felt terrible. Sometimes though they drive you crazy!

    Oh and TLC - I do think Toddlers and Tiaras is a trainwreck you just can't keep your eyes off of! I admit, I watch 19 kids and counting too. : /

  2. Regarding number 6 - oh the things I would like to say! It is amazing we don't slip more often! Thanks for the tag.

  3. I hear ya on the TLC one! Say Yes to the Dress and My Strange Addiction are my faves! And I hate movie theater bathrooms because they are usually so big and so quiet! I'm always scared someone is hiding in there!

  4. Ok the bathroom is HYSTERICAL. I did that once at Iron Hill Brewery. But I was 27 and drunk. Haha.

    I agree with the moment of frustration- I have said a few things to kids that I regret. You are human and that is just proof. Forgive yourself!

    Thanks for the tag- I needed post material today :)
