The Wednesday Files -- The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Working Out --
THE GOOD: Feeling good physically and emotionally, more energy throughout the day, getting to fit into my skinny jeans
THE BAD: Working out.  'Nuff said.
THE UGLY: Me, after I work out.  It is not a pretty sight.

Being a Teacher --
THE GOOD: Being surrounded by tons of loving children all day long
THE BAD: Grading.  And then grading some more.
THE UGLY: Digging someone's pants out of a clogged toilet, because hey -- if the toilet's clogged, I guess we better throw our pants in there...

Writing a Food Blog --
THE GOOD: Learning to cook, always having something great to eat, and be connected to others like YOU!
THE BAD: Having a great idea but not having great conditions, OR working so hard but not having the finished product match up to the image in my head
THE UGLY: Some of my pictures.  I only show you the good ones!

My Morning Commute --
THE GOOD: Twenty minutes of not too much traffic and good radio
THE BAD: Driving past the local dump on a bad-wind-day
THE UGLY: The thoughts I think in my head when someone cuts in front of me and makes me hit the brakes

Living in California --
THE GOOD: Can go to the beach one day, snowboarding the next, hit up a big city that has flavor and culture the day after that, and then enjoy some small town American get together... and the weather.  Of course, the weather.  
THE BAD: Too many people and not enough resources make for a brown landscape half of the time
THE UGLY: Real estate prices.  You don't want to know.

And you?  Give me your Good, Bad, and Ugly in the comments below.


  1. Aw, I'm sorry you had to fish someone's pants! That's awful.

    I actually have fun grading. I don't know if that's because I teach languages, but I always have good laughs!

    And I'm sure your pictures are a lot better than you think!!! I always get hungry after visiting your blog.

    1. I adore grading/reading journals and things like that. I abhor grading math papers, spelling tests, etc. :P But journals, wow, there are some real gems you find in there, and a whole lot of side splitting laughter!

  2. My morning commute would not have a good at all!! Good that yours is only 20 minutes!! :)


    1. :( Sorry! I hate long commutes. That is very, very ugly.

  3. The pants in the toilet thing had me cracking up. Totally reminds me of the scene in Along Came Polly where there are towels used as TP.

    1. HAHAHA! I love that movie! Bathroom humor is hilarious, unless of course you are doing the fishing yourself ;)

  4. Hahah, what...pants in the toliet?! At least, it gives an interesting story to tell. :)

    Even though it`s nearing fall, this week, the weather in Socal has just been HOT. That`s the ugly for me. A good for me this week is that I baked an apple pie! :)

    1. HA! Interesting to tell, no so interesting to live :P Sorry for the hot weather, that is a bummer if you don't like it. It's how I feel about rain...

      Apple pie? YUM YUM! I just did an apple crisp. 'Tis the season for apples!


I love hearing from you! Thanks for making my day :)
