Episode 5

Once again a big thank you to Trixiequilts for taking the time to edit this for me!

Hunting Update: Hubby shot a buck antelope on his first day hunting! YAY! He also was able to shoot a doe on the second day! He also did some fishing and has deemed his hunting trip a success. I was even able to receive a birthday and anniversary phone call from The Middle Of Nowhere, Wyoming. We can’t figure out how he got reception on the top of that mountain, but I’m not complaining!

Episode 5: “Gifts 2 &3: The Big Guns Were Rolled Out!”

So where did I leave off? Oh yes, I was a blubbering mess at the Pensacola Airport after receiving my first birthday gift from my hubby. Well, the weeks went on, school started and I was tremendously busy. This year we have to teach 6 out of 7 class periods instead of 5 out of 7 and it’s amazing the difference once class can make on your grading time! About mid-September an email went out which said that based upon our previous years’ evaluation and our students’ scores on their End-of-the-Year exams, bonuses were going to be awarded to teachers. I didn’t really think anything about it at that time and went back to lecturing on the difference between covalent bonds and ionic bonds. (Just cuz I know you’re dying to know LOL, electrons are shared in covalent bonds like what happens in water, while the electrons in ionic bonds are taken or given, this is how table salt (NaCl) is made.) Later that day I received an email from my hubby, so I checked it out. That was when I found out that I had been one of the teachers that qualified to receive the bonus. YAY!!! I figured the extra money could be put into savings for a later date and time when we would need it. The only plan I had with the money was to buy some scrapbooking stuff and had discussed with my hubby that we should just put the rest into savings. Little did I know …

September 15, 2008. The day the bonuses would be handed out. I was cleaning up my room after school. It is amazing the mess 135 students can make in just one day. I was sanitizing desks with my trusty Clorox wipes, waiting for my hubby who seemed to be running late and was not answering his cell phone at the moment LOL! Why is it that whenever you really want to get in touch with someone it’s the one time you can’t? Then my husband finally walked in holding a birthday gift bag. OOOHHH…another gift!! I was excited, who wouldn’t be, I love gifts! I love giving them more than receiving them, but when they come from your hubby it’s always a good feeling. I opened up the gift, and inside was a bunch of Disney scrapbooking stickers.

Me: Disney Scrapbooking stuff?? Honey, I love Disney stickers, but I’m done with my albums.

Timeout: It would figure that the only two albums I have completely done are my Disney ones LOL! I’m still working on Alaska, barely started Florida, and have yet to begin my Mission trip to Quebec LOL!

NDH: Well, I have a feeling you are going to need these.

Then I was handed THE envelope! By this time I was so confused and literally had no clue what was going on. I opened the envelope and pulled out a piece of paper. Typed on the paper, with that wonderful Disney font (where my hubby found the Disney font to type this I’ll never know), was an invitation.

The invitation simply read:

To my beautiful wife Jennifer-
One Dream Vacation to Walt Disney World (To be planned by you)
From your (hopefully now completely forgiven) husband Phillip


Me: Are you freaking serious? I get to go to Disney World?
NDH: Yup, and I know how much you like to plan that trip so I’m leaving all the details to you.
Me: Are you going with me? (I gave him a skeptical look.)
NDH: I’d prefer not to. (Yes, he seriously said that…he earns his title well doesn’t he ladies? LOL)
Me: But, babe, are you sure we can afford this? I mean I can find ways to lower the cost, but it’s still Disney. (As a wife I had to ask LOL)
NDH: You do have a budget (LOL, of course I did!) You may plan your dream vacation with this amount (he stated the amount).

It was the exact amount of my bonus! It turns out I wasn’t going to be spending the money on scrapbooking stuff after all!! I was going to Disney!! After many hugs, kisses, and squeals of pure joy, my husband was fully reassured that he had been completely forgiven and was free to venture to the wilderness of Wyoming to shoot an antelope completely guilt-free. I was going to Disney! I was going to Disney! To say I was excited was an understatement LOL!

Episode 6: “The Planning Begins. (a.k.a. The Fun Really Starts)!”

Wow - what an incredibly sweet and thoughtful husband you have! I have to give kudos to mine too - He is like that too - full of surprises! So glad your nDH is coming home and that he had a great hunting trip! How much of what he shot is coming home with him? I've heard that antelope is really good for you!

He brought home two chunks of antelope tenderloin and I have heard that it is good for you too so I'm excited about that!

That is great you get bonus like that.I know all about electrons!
I was an assistant teacher with science class. I actually miss teaching. Is your planning period your lunch period also?
Here is Pa. the reachrs get a planning period and a lunch period.

That was so sweet of your DH. By the way we are official booked, and I started my Pre trip report.

YAY for being officially book!! That is awesome and I'm so going to read your PTR YAY!!!

Actually yes my planning period is my lunch period but I have 1.5 hours off so that is nice and I usually try to make the most of it by doing a lot of grading!

Awww... maybe I should introduce my soon-to-be DH to your NDH so some of that will rub off on him... just for fun... not that he doesn't do well already. Then, they could go hunting together, and we could plan Disney trips... though I'm not sure how well two obsessive Disney planners could work together to plan a trip...

I'm so happy that you get to use your bonus on something other than bills and groceries.
