The Life of Bon: Hey, May! Let's be done, ok?

Hey, May! Let's be done, ok?

I'm killing myself over here.

May just needs to be done already, don't you think?  I mean, May, it was awesome, we love you, you beat the hell out of January any day, but let's just call it a day, shall we?  (Or a month?)  I can't keep up with you.

Also, I'm sorry I said hell.

Do all school teachers feel this way?  Like they are in this mad, frantic dash to the finish line?  Essays to grade, final tests, capstone projects, seniors with 4% in your class who are begging for at least a D-, (No big deal... just 56% away... close enough, right?) arguments with parents who defend their children when they plagiarize assignments, (Yes this happened.  No I can't talk about it.)  And in the meantime there's an offer an a house (yippee!), a blog that needs maintaining, (I really love this blog!) a puppy that wants a walk, (so many walks!) and a pregnant girl who just wants a nap.

Me!  Me!  I'm the pregnant girl who wants a nap!

Pretty sure it's gonna be June by the time I get one, though.

It's 10:25 and I'm going to bed now!!!!!


  1. Bonnie I love your blog and normally I wouldn't say anything...but I really hope you realize that isn't a walrus in the picture but actually a manatee. I'll just assume it's pregnancy brain. ;)

    1. Laughed out loud at this! Best comment ever. How am I not more up to speed on the differences between walruses and manatees? Shame shame.

    2. Well shit. Looks like a walrus to me too :( now I'm not sure I know what a real walrus is.

    3. Well, Florida IS famous for its walruses! Oh wait. Nono it's not. Lol! I blame end-of-year-teacher brain. At this point, I would kiss a walrus if I thought it would grade some papers for me...

    4. Ah I'm so glad you found it funny. I was worried it would come off at nit-picky. I vote animal books for the baby so you both can learn! :)

  2. I'm with you. I'm so over May!

  3. All of my teacher friends seem to be at their wit's end right about now. So you are definitely not alone. Only a few more days!


  4. Thanks so much for the write up! I hear ya on the nap. I hope to get at least one in 2014. You could not be cuter pregnant.

  5. You are not alone! We have 11 school days left... and so much to do, and yet it keeps dragging!

    First day of summer vacation I am going to indulge in a glorious nap!

  6. Man a nap sounds awesome right about now!

  7. Thank you for your lovely write up about me, it made me laugh out loud at my British descriptions... that's just how I talk! Unfortunately I don't talk anything like the people on Notting Hill, as I'm a Northerner but it's a great movie so go watch it.
    I'm doing a write up right now about how awesome sponsoring your blog has been, I'll send you the link as soon as it's live!

    Thank you Bon!

  9. May is an easy month for my family we don't have any birthdays in it well we didn't till Kelsi was born on the 7th


  10. How To Stop A Divorce And Save Your Marriage?(Dr.Brave).

    Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in TEXAS,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly email this wonderful man {},i f you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to Dr Brave for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{}, Thanks..
