So glad that I like to be busy...

Tuesday, November 02, 2010

I tutored 12 people today, sometimes three at a time....Boy, is there any math left in my brain???!!! Still, it was fun and interesting. It is nice helping people to understand material that they didn't realize they could master. One student got a 95 on a test last week-woo hoo!!!

The Internet at the college is down so I can't upload my midterm grades but they sent out messages so we knew that we had an extension. Otherwise, I would have stayed up late to put them in before midnight.

I did my one mile walk with Leslie this morning and I still want to do some weight training so I guess better say "Good NIght!!

    I wish you could come help with my Gr. 2 boys... I taught them "make 10 strategy" and then "doubles" today and they excitedly said they got it and went to their desks, but when I checked - no one got it....so re-teach tomorrow......


I saw your status where you asked, Can anyone be too busy?" - I think the answer is, are your enjoying it? are you having time for family and friends? and is it still fun? Guess if you get a YES to all of the above, it can't be too busy yet.... (but don't push it!!!)

    Ok I think I got this one. 12 people tutored "sometimes" 3 at a time. So that means at least 4 sessions. If you had one group of 3 and the other (12-3=9)were singles that would be a total of 10 sessions. So the answer is 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 sessions!

I had a Math teacher in 8th grade that was in her words, not trying to win any popularity contests, but you know we learned Math and now over 40 years later, we remember things and know she is the one who taught us that. So you know...in the long run she did win the popularity contest! I think you always remember who helped you "get it"! YOU are one who will be remembered by many!

Cold day, colder night....

Monday, November 01, 2010

it was a good day-did two Zumba classes and a 3 mile walk with Leslie. Food intake good if you excuse the three mini kitkats. I did avoid cookies so there was some progress.

That is my goal for the month. No cookies and extra cardio each day. Keeps it simple and hopefully possible.

Best thing ever-Team-Eric is back and I was so happy. It made my day. Check out her first day blog! It's a hoot.

Majorly cold here and my cat is calling me to the couch. Yes, that couch.

Sleep warm and well everyone!


This is Elmo kitty!!

    OMG! I made your blog! How is that??? TWO Zumba classes and a 3 mile walk! Those Kit-Kats calories don't stand a chance of being in your body long enough to do any damage! You go girl!

    Hi Elmo kitty! Thanks for slowing Terri down and encouraging her to relax!!!

Cold..... we won't go there, eh? As long as there's no white stuff, guess it's not as cold as here.... there goes the furnace again... well, I am thinking (seriously) of doing some exercise, so better get to it, before i change my mind..... emoticon

Rest

Friday, October 29, 2010

Hey, it does a body good-woo hoo!!

After a rough night of sleep(Elmo kitty decided that I needed grooming since i fell asleep on Mr. Couch), I decided to have an easier day.

I visited with friends, went walking at the high school(and was lucky enough to visit with a lot of former students and teacher friends), delivered flowers for a special friend's birthday, and ended the day eating soup with good friends.

It was such a good day that even my knees feel pretty good!! Tomorrow, a Zumba master class and then time with dh!! Sounds good to me!! emoticon

    I'm living vicariously through you! My goal is to slow down, life is too short to be spent on jumping through someone else's hoops. Thanks for the inspiration!!

    Best times of all, spending time with DH.
My DH was a very keen cyclist in his youth, now they are giving hime a lot of pain. Take care of those knees, treat them gently if they complain. Must catch up!.

Weary

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I hit the ground running this morning, got up, made breakfast, fed pets, graded papers, ironed clothes, met friend for lunch and went to work. After work was done, it was off to the gym for zumba!! Great class, drove home and realized that my hat was at the gym. Back I went ....Fortunately it was there.

DH got home from his root canal around 8:30 so we had a late and light dinner.

Must finish sparking.........


Just a little bit of fall!!
