Project 365 | Week 39

The week that I was introduced to 2chainz and took more pictures of my cats.

Day 272:


As a child, I didn’t plan fairytales and imagine wedding dresses, I made lists.

And then it became this…

Single handedly keeping the post-it note company running.

Day 275:


Can you imagine what I’m going to be like when I have real live actual babies?

Day 276:

Picasso Toaster Struddle

I should have had him sealed into glass and sold at auction.  It’s like finding the face of Jesus in your french toast.

Day 277:

“Listen Immediately.”

My students thought I needed to be educated immediately.  After I told them I listened to NPR and explained what National Public Radio meant, they thought it necessary that I listened to these songs.

Some lyrics:

“Scrr..Scrr.. Wrists moving, cookin’ to it
I’m in the kitchen, yams everywhere
Just made a juug, I got bands everywhere”

You should take that literally, yams everywhere.  2Chainz loves the autumn season.

Day 278:

Burning House

Yesterday, I discovered this awesome website called The Burning House.

It has pictures of what everyone would grab if their house was burning down.

This is my burning house list.


  • Journal
  • Bird Bookmark
  • Grandmother’s Necklace
  • Travel Sewing Kit
  • Cat(s)
  • Easter Gnome
  • God Shaped Hole | Tiffanie DeBartolo
  • The BFG Post Card
  • Letter from my Mother
  • Jade Elephant from my Father
  • Journals of Sylvia Plath with Sticky Notes
  • Annotated Alice from my Mother
  • Sally Doll
  • Grandparents
  • Shoebox from my Father

I’m more sentimental than literal.  I would probably need a pair of underwear, my computer, and wallet.  If you do this on your blog, I really want to see what you’d take so link back in the comments.

My grandparents are the most important thing in this pile. My mother writes me letters about her childhood whenever I live far away – those are the second most important thing.

Day 279:

Outfit Choices for Teaching

In the morning, I send my mom my outfits.  She always gives the best outfit advice.  The second and third outfits were actually worn.  My students tell me that pants that high-waist  are called “mom jeans” and I need to stop wearing them so high.  Due to the traumatic experience of wearing “mom jeans” last week, I chose not to wear them this week.

Day 280:

The ultimate Taylor Swift Love Story.

My sweet babies. Jasper is deathly afraid of the living room fan so he needs the comfort of a woman.

    Ok, so first of all, I thought that I was the one who kept post-it in business! I make lists of what lists to make!

    I love that the song talks about yams everywhere. I mean, it is probably the best time of year for them.

    I like your teaching outfits. When I was little, I told my mom I didn’t want to be a teacher if it meant that I had to wear “teacher dresses” (you know, those mu-mu things that they used to wear???). Therefore when I became a teacher, I tried to, and was able to, wear cute teacher outfits! So I like that you’re sharing yours.

    And honestly, there are those coffee artists that make hearts in your lattes, so maybe you can be a toaster strudel artist.

      You crack me up! Post-it Note is being supportive by two crazy women who make lists for their lists. That is insane. You should see my post it issues. My desk is like a giant post-it board. BAH

      That song is TERRIBLE. He says, “All I want for my birthday is a big bootied hoe.” And then he talks about yams…which I think means drugs…but I like to think it means those lovely little colored vegetables that come out during the fall.

      I try really hard to still be cute when teaching. It’s odd because I look like a student sometimes and I will have teachers yell at me from behind and I have to turn around and show them my ID. So, I still try to look a little older than what I am.

      I think people would really appreciate a toaster struddle stop with struddle designs. It’s a must. Someone will get rich with this idea. That will be my next job : )

    As always, I love your choice of pictures, and your burning house pile. It is so nice to see that you would save old pictures and old letters, not to mention the ugly doll from your brother.
    It is so sad to me when I see old photos of someone stuck in the flea market. Obviously, there was no sweet granddaughter to save those pictures from the flea market pile. Great choices for that list, but grab your car keys and purse too. I am sure there are things you need in there.
    Fromage is getting prettier every day, and I can see that Jasper couldn’t resist her charms any longer.

    • Cassie says:

      I think it’s really funny that they don’t have filters. : ) However, it still scares me that my jeans are “mom jeans,” I thought they were fashion jeans!

    • Cassie says:

      I have a teaching notebook like that. It has so many post-its and margin notes. It’s kind of insane to read. I think I can read it once when I’ve just written it and then no more.
