I'm feeling thankful today.
Within the last week or two, there has been sort of a "dark cloud" over my school. Deaths in families, mysterious illnesses, divorce... one of my colleagues and I both said that we're a little afraid to ask how anyone is anymore.
Because o... Read more
In a Spring-y good mood!
Today was an especially good day for my organization skills. I had a 6:00 appointment with my trainer, then school, then a coffee meeting, then a short TM run, and then a class - "Butts and Guts." Phew! I had a lot to pack today! Clothes for... Read more
St. Patrick's Day at an elementary school is fun. We have one kindergarten teacher who has his kids wear hats with their names "Irish-ised" like "O'Vanessa," "McSerenity..." it's very fun and I always get a kick out of it.
Last night was ... Read more

TGI Rest Day!
I had this as a blog title before, but it's so appropriate.
This weekend was just full of going out to eat! Friday night, Saturday afternoon, and then again last night with honey. We went to this little (I mean, really little - only 20 se... Read more
The good news is that I got my 12 minute TM run in with NO pain yesterday. Wahoo! I am taking a cue from a Spark Buddy (thanks Mike!) and training smart, not pushing too hard too fast. I warmed up for about nine minutes (two songs from my pla... Read more
I set some new goals for myself this week, and I think I did well with them. I got lots of school work done, I limited my sweets, and I didn't miss a workout. Yippee! Looks like I'll be getting those new headphones this weekend.
This mor... Read more
The adult decision.
In today's morning blog I wrote about how I had to be an adult about an incident at school. Bleh. After much consideration and conversation with a couple colleagues, I have decided to bring up the incident with my student very generically - ab... Read more
I'm a real teacher!
This is my 4th year teaching, and this week gave me confirmation that I am a real teacher. I have a student coming in to do field work. Yippee! But now not only do I have to be a real teacher, I have to be a real adult. There was an incident... Read more
Did I meet goals from yesterday?
Vacuum - No. The banana bread took longer than I thought, and by the time I was done with dinner and my school work, I just didn't have time.
Banana bread - YES. And it is just delicious. I think I found a... Read more
It's a great day for a good mood!
Yesterday was the first 50+ degree day we've had in a while. It was WONderful. It put me in such a good mood! Even though I had no car for the day, I took honey's car to the gym early. He took me to school, and then a friend and I met for co... Read more
"I roll with the check engine light on"
That's one of the latest groups I joined on Facebook. My Jetta just LOVES to show me the check engine light. And yesterday was no exception. There I was, driving down to my mom's house, and my car started bucking like a mechanical bull and bl... Read more
This week was...
...generally a success. I set some new goals for myself, continued the Not Tracking Food experiment, and renewed some commitments I'd kind of forgotten about.
Lesson: My goals need to be more specific. One of my goals was "make healthy fo... Read more
Planning to Plan
One of my very favorite things to do is plan out my week. I think I'm finally catching up from all those years when I didn't plan *anything*. I use my Friday nights as my planning nights - I usually visit the chiropractor after school, come ho... Read more
Yesterday I was all worked up about having my afternoon totally packed with things to do. Well I went and got my body fat % tested - it's within the "normal range" (Holy mackerel - first time ever!) but I'm still going to work on getting that p... Read more
