About Me

Hi, my name is Angela and welcome to my blog. This is a place where I write about my life in an honest and open way.

I am 36 years old, single, and a Christian. God gave me a heart to work with children and so I spend my day teaching kindergarten. It is my fourth year teaching and although it is hard I love it. I currently go to a college for my BA in Elementary Education which keeps me busy. Between work and school there is not much time left but I enjoy serving and helping others, watching netflix, or reading a good book.

The Cost

Sometimes I can not believe the cost of things. A friend and I have been talking about staying at a hotel just somewhere in Phoenix to get away for a day. Me to celebrate my birthday and her to have a night away from the hubby, 3 year old, and new puppy. I have been looking at the cost of hotels and it always seems crazy how expensive they are. Hundreds of dollars for one night in a hotel. I saw one room, ok it was a two room suite for over $1100! Do people really spend that? That is more than I make in a month. I am hoping to stay under $100 and so I am shopping around. I have always had luck with Priceline negotiator. So I think I can get one in north Scottsdale for $100 so I just need to make sure my friend is thinking the same price range since we are splitting it.

One hotel, ok it is a resort, is the JW Marriott. I babysat at that hotel once and they have to have over 2000 rooms there. The lowest price room is $500 and goes up from there. The night I was there was over a holiday weekend and the place was packed. That is a lot of money just from the rooms. Then of course it is a resort with a golf, multiple restraints and bars, and a spa. Plus being right next to Desert Ridge I am sure they are always busy. It just seems like so much money.

So if anyone wants to join us for a girl night on the night of Friday March 23rd let me know. Should be lots of fun!


Yesterday went great. I was so frustrated Saturday night and yet there was nothing I could do about it at that point. After church Sunday it took me several hours to end my paper and have my sil help edit it and then do the assignments for my early childhood class. I definitely had not done enough work through out the week to finish on time. I have made a plan for this week. I need to stick with it. I know that my essay needs a lot more work before I turn in the final draft this week. Plus I have to start working on a final project for my English class. I hope to get ahead in my early childhood class as well. Next week is the week that my classes overlap and I have three classes all at once. Next week is the last week of my English class and the first week of a second early childhood class.but the first week is never very hard. Usually just agreeing to the syllabus. But I don't want to get overwhelmed so time management this week is very important.

I also need to work on my food. I seem to be consuming a lot of calories but they have no nutritional value. So then I end up feel weak and tired. Sometimes a little dizzy. So the goal this week is to make sure that each meal has some kind of nutritional value in it. Because it turns out that 1000 calories of lemonade may be filling but not really what my body wants.

Speaking of it is my lunch time so I am going to go find something to eat.

  1. I know what you mean about those hotel rooms AND empty calories!! It's so hard to pay that much money for a room for a night! And, I've got to eat better, too. It's so hard, though. :)
