It's been a rough week...
I know I can always count on you guys to make me feel like I know what I'm doing. I appreciate all the comments on my blog yesterday about my sick day.
This week I haven't been Sparking as much (I don't know why, I just haven't) and I can ... Read more
What a difference a day makes...
Yesterday I was a mess. Runny and stuffy nose (I will never know how this can happen at the same time), watery eyes, sore throat... nasty cold stuff. Took a day off to get better and today I feel almost 100%.
When I started teaching, I didn'... Read more
Now I know what a bear feels like.
A bear in hibernation, that is. I came home from school yesterday, took a hot bath because I was FREEZING and then slept. Woke up to eat a little dinner, then slept some more. Went upstairs, took out my contacts, and slept. Got up this morni... Read more
When I started with my personal trainer, I told her I wanted some serious arms. Not those little wimpy arms, but arms with muscles. So she set me up on a circuit with push-ups, planks, planks with one arm rows (holy lat muscles), tricep dips o... Read more
Rest Day (phew!)
For being a rest day, I sure got a lot done! Honey and I did the grocery shopping, went to the hardware store, washed some windows, went for a nice leisurely walk around our neighborhood, and watched some Kitchen Nightmares and Star Trek from t... Read more
Short for Saturday
This morning I ran, I did Pilates, and I got a lot done from my to-do list. Went shopping, got some new sunglasses (it's been on my list for WEEKS), packed up the winter hats and scarves, and vacuumed downstairs. I didn't do as much cleaning a... Read more
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
Still adjusting to DST!
Last week at this time it was perfectly sunny... I have to get used to this time change.
Did I meet my goals from yesterday?
Water - YES
Quiz - YES
Clothes for week? - no. It's so hard for me to want to do anything away from my ... 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
