Ok so I have good news, I called an Allergy Eye Doctor a couple of days ago and I have an appointment for next Wednesday! The lady said that they can check for any type of allergies, that's the first thing they do. So pray that it isn't my dog, that would be terrible. Also pray that they can find a solution, I'm am very tired of red, dry, itchy eyes, even visine doesn't work (WOW).
Today I had a courtesy screening interview with a lady for the Gilbert Public School Disctrict, I was so nervous! Luckily my supervisor from school had given us the questions that are asked prior so I kind of was ready. So I thought I did ok, some of the questions through me off, I was smiling and trying to be myself as much as possible. I go into my car thinking ok that wasn't so bad, then I look in the mirror (don't know why, gotta make sure I look good at all times? who knows) well I had some brown stuff on my teeth the whole time!! How embarassing! What's worse is that the lady didn't even say anything and I was smiling pretty much the whole time. Because that's what I do, I like to smile. Anyways, I hope that she won't evaluate me on my messy teeth and will focus on what I said. Just so embarassing, ohmygoodness. It's kind of funny though.

It was a sad day in America yesterday, our Lizzie went home. I was glad that I was able to go and see her off, I think I shed a tear. We will miss you our friend, we pray that God will bring you back to us soon!

So my sweet wonderful eyes have been driving me up the wall this week. I went to school on Monday and my right eye was bloodshot, I had to go home to get my glasses because my eyes were hurting something awful. I don't know why but I get so embarrassed that I can't even look people in the eyes when I am like that. I tell myself that the glasses cover up the eyes so it won't be noticeable, right. My kids probally think I am on drugs or something, (well I am but they are all legal!!) Anyways, I told you before about the little boy who every morning comes up to me and says, "you are looking beautiful today Ms. Cela." Well I think he rubbed off on some of the other boys too. I was feeling very down Monday because I felt like a red eyed freak, one of the boys Jacob comes up to me and tells me that I am looking beautiful today, without thinking I was like, "I don't feel beautiful, my eyes are red I look horrible." Then I looked at him realizing that I just should of said thank you. He looks at me and said, "Ms. Cela, we don't care about your eyes," (like that's not what's important to us you are still beautiful) when he said that I almost cried, I cry everytime I tell that story. It isn't the outside that matters to these kids, they are willing to accept me or anyone no matter how awful they look or whatnot. I just had to thank God for using that boy to help me. I think Jacob got a big hug after that, he isn't the one who usually says that every morning. But I am so blessed to be there in that classroom, I really am.

We were talking in college group the other day about missions and how we can help the people from different parts of the world. So air1 is doing a thing with Jars of Clay and Blood Water Mission to help address the HIVAIDS crisis in Africa. On Thursday, Jars of Clay will be live on-air in the Air1 studio asking for your financial support of their Blood Water Mission in Africa. The HIV/AIDS crisis is the greatest humanitarian threat in the world today and the need for clean blood and clean water in Africa is urgent. The Blood:Water Mission’s 1000 Wells Project seeks to build and repair 1000 clean water wells in sub-Saharan Africa. They hope to funnel 100% of the donations from their fundraiser directly to Africa.

We can help, every little bit counts, you can pledge on the phone or online! Let's make a differnece! How exciting this is! :)

Hello all! I hope your Saint Patrick's Day was lovely!
My car is fixed after being five days in the shop, it looks great and they even washed my car! How cool is that?! Maybe that's what they do all the time but hey I'm new to this. I just thank God for insurance and again that he kept me safe. I told my grandma about the accident so now everywhere I go she is always telling me to be extra careful, I think I will be. It's too expensive to be careless and reckless.
I don't know what it is about Spring Break but I feel so relaxed and am glad to be catching up somewhat on my sleep. Like Wednsday night I didn't get to catch up because Dina likes to stay up way late, :) no it was Gabe he wanted to watch Van Helsing, which is an awesome movie and I was proud of myself for staying up to see the whole thing. Usually around one or two I am out. But I liked the movie.
It's great to have a break! I like the time with my brothers and parents. Also I get lots of puppy time, he is keeping me healthy by making me chase him and taking him for walks.
Although I like the break, I miss the kids at school. I had a dream about being late to the first day of school after spring break, isn't that silly? I had to go get my car with my dad but I couldn't figure out what I wanted to wear so I kept changing my outfit, we were already late and I was freaking out because I needed to be at school but I didn't have a vehicle and I didn't know what to wear. Hmm, my dreams are full of drama. No wonder sometimes I wake up tired.

It's very sad, I haven't been out of the house all day. Maybe it is the fact that I don't have my car but my mom's car is here to use, I could go out if I want. But instead I decide to stay at home, clean, do laundry and make dinner for my brother. Sounds pathetic, huh? Well it's Spring Break, I can do what I want to for a week. :)

I had an interesting day to say the least, and I can see where God has been with me through out. So I am going to school driving on the freeway, there is a big truck, semi, whatever you want to call it on my right side. Well it looked to me as though he was trying to get in my lane so I was trying to get away from him, well I hit the person on my left. Her truck was fine, my car isn't so fine. The rear driver's seat is smashed and it has black streaks, I hit the tire of her truck and her bumper so that's where the streaks came from I guess. When we pulled over there was this nice man in an army suit who helped us out, he called the cops and everything was taken care of. It was just weird that on Saturday I was talking to Dina about car wrecks and accidents then this happens today. I am just grateful that I remembered my seat belt and that I didn't hurt the other lady. I am thankful that it wasn't more serious being on the freeway and all. Thank you Lord for protecting me and the other lady involved, thank you that she was understanding, thank you for the man who came to help us, thank you that the officers were nice and helpful. Thank you Lord.
Ok so I went to school I ended up being about 20 minutes late because they had to write a report, then school started so I had to quickly readjust for the kids. It was so hard not to think about what just happened but again God's grace and mercy got me through. We talked about feelings in school but I didn't talk about the accident I didn' t want the kids to get scared so instead I talked about when Dreke first came to us, that story makes me so happy.
My teacher got to order out today for lunch, I was so excited because I got chicken steak fajitas and they were excellent! They just melted in my mouth, oh I wish I had one now! But I didn't leave any leftovers, :(
So that was my day, needless to say I am a little tired. I came home called the insurance talked to dad, now I am totally ready for a nap or just to go to bed.

It is quite nice today, I didn't get up till 8:30. I think I was asleep at almost 8 on the couch so I got roughly 12 hours of sleep last night. I didn't have to go to student teaching because we had a seminar to learn about how interviews go and what are the right answers or wrong things to say. It is very informative, I am glad they do that because I would totally be lost.
So now I get to relax, that's so nice! The weekend is here, and it is almost Spring Break! It has gone by so fast I can't believe it!
I just thank God becuase he is helping me through all this. I am learning more and more everyday in school that if I don't rely on him for every aspect then my day gets messed up. Praying for the kids everyday helps too, I've seen a few changes already. THANK GOD!! :)
