“Goin' Batty!”

  

Description from Michelle Downy Chick: Had the bat for the longest time just because I thought he was so cute. Finally figured out what to do with him after being inspired by a Movie Chick pick :)

    Great pick and lovely necklace, Michelle! Thanks for sharing a pix of it with us!!! Love the clasp at the bottom with the bat.

    Great idea with the clasp at the front. Mr. Bat looks fabulous with the Tourmilated Quartz! :-D

  11. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    WOW!!!!
    Fav!
    I think you had me with the tourmalated Quartz, a not-so-secret vice of mine, but the necklace blows me away. Wow! again.;)

    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    Oh my gosh–you are all so nice! I think I’m going to cry now…been one of those days…thanks so much :D

  13. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Sorry to hear it’s been one of those days, Michelle. Hope you know the Chicks are always here for you! :-)

  14. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    Thanks Lynn! I know, it’s so wonderful to come back here…it’s like a little bit of home :) …just found out my position is being terminated and it’s just starting to sink in…oh well…

  15. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    OK, tell all. What kind of day did you have?
    I confess, I woke up a little teary because I thought my son was mad at me (phone call) last nite. Turned out he was out of sorts, exhausted, and very sleepy when he returned my call. Today, we talked, I asked him, and he was very sorry to have accidentally hurt my feelings. Kids! and he is 28! Gotta love ‘em, ’cause we already spent all that time raising ‘em. :P

  16. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Oh, no, Michelle! I’m so sorry!!! Where do you work?

  17. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    lol Harriet…I know what that’s like! I’ve done that a couple of times to friends because of exhaustion…I felt so bad afterwards!

  18. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Just read what you said, Downy Chick! So sorry for your job situation. I really do believe a new door will open for you, and I hope it is sooner than later. Hang in there, we care.

  19. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    Unfortunately, with our awful budget times, coupled with working in a public school, several positions are being cut

  20. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    Thanks Harriet…a colleague joked that now I’ll have all kinds of free time for beads! Maybe I’ll start a new business!

  21. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Are you a teacher, Michelle?

  22. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    I’m sure I’ve been short w/people who did not deserve it sometimes, too. The good thing is that real friends will call you on it and say “What is going on with you? This is not YOU!”

  23. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    Yup…and even though I just finished my M.A., I haven’t yet finished certification and I don’t quite have all that much seniority

  24. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    Absolutely Harriet! Thank God for that too…and I’m convinced that as women, we try to multi task so much that we don’t realize how spaced out we’re acting sometimes

  25. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    That could be a door opening for you Downy Chick. :-)

  26. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Michelle, sorry to hear about your position being terminated…that can be quite scary. But it seems that something will always come up when it’s needed so I’m sure it’s a temporary setback.

  27. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Michelle, I’m soooo sorry this is happening to you. What grade/subject do you teach? Do you live in the New England states?

  28. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    Absolutely…I’ve been lucky up to know to have things fall into my lap…I’m hoping this will be the case too…it’s a bit daunting right now because everything’s so tight, but I have faith…and Chicks! :)

  29. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    I do, Lynn…history in Massachusetts…I’ve been trying to get into other fields, so hopefully this can help kick my butt in gear

  30. ChickyD aka Debra
    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    Love your pick and necklace, Michelle!

    So sorry to hear about your job situation. We CARE!!!!

  31. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    What about private schools? I taught kindergarten in a church school years ago, and it was a good experience. Public school often pays better, and has better benefits, but a pay check is a good thing. I hope your pay is spread over the summer, so you have time to recoup and look around. I’ll say a prayer for you.

  32. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    Thanks Debra! I know…I had to come here before hittin’ the bed because I knew the picks and chicks would be a great pick me up!

  33. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    That is the great thing about LB chicks. We really do care.

  34. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    I have thought of that Harriet…I would actually like to get into a Catholic school or at least a private school…everything is so much different (and I hear discipline is better) than public….luckily I did spread my paychecks out, so at least I still have that for now…thank you for your thoughts and prayers…I learned a long time ago that it really works :)

  35. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I know what you mean, Michelle! I often come here when I need my spirits lifted, too, and it always works! :D

  36. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    Absolutely…and soon we’ll have our Garden!

  37. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Do you have children, Michelle?

  38. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    I don’t…would like them, but luckily I don’t have to worry about little ones right now too

  39. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I guess that is good — one less thing to worry about financially! How are things with your husband’s job?

  40. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    It’s just me…I’ve spent so much time forcusing on work (and other people’s kids!) that I’ve never paid any attention to that side of life…oops!

  41. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Knock! Knock! Open your eyes chicky, and look around. :-)

  42. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Michelle, I’m late into the story, but will add my prayers to the rest for a good outcome for you. I can sympathize with your fears, since I like to know what is happening “next”. Hopefully this will turn out to be a good thing. It’s definitely an opportunity to explore your options. You certainly are good with the beads! I love your bat necklace! I have one too that’s been needing a place to fly – I like what you did!

  43. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    That’s OK — everything happens when it’s meant to be. Like you said earlier, this will give you a chance to look around at some opportunities you’ve been interested in! :D

  44. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Well there you go – a kick in the seat to get you out there to take care of YOU!

  45. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    lol Harriet…but the key is to find one who can put up with a beading addiction! ;)
    Thanks so much Lori! I hear ya…though I can live with a bit of spontanaity (spelling?) I do like some idea of the “next” as well. And if I could, I would have everyone get that bat :)

  46. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    By “opportunities” I meant career, not men! LOL

    My prayers are with you during this time, Michelle. Is school out for the year?

  47. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Oh, no, the Chicks are going batty!!! LOL

  48. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    lol…I got ya Lynn…although, if I could find a very rich man, think of all the LB fun I could have :D

  49. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    Heehee…maybe the bat can be the new nest!

  50. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    LB would be VERY happy if we all had vast resources of money!!! LOL ;-)

  58. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Night Elaine! All the bats are flying away… :D
