December 30, 2018: Surprises

I didn’t expect to end the year sick, yet here I am with the stomach bug. 🙁 I was trying to be soo careful at work, wearing gloves and using hand sanitizer every chance I got…but when a child manages to touch your face, there’s not much you can do. So yeah, last night wasContinue reading “December 30, 2018: Surprises”

December 20, 2018: Time for Reading

I wish I could read more of my current story during the week, since it’s a high page count. I’m still tackling my books about a couple chapters a night. Some days I have some time during my break, but I don’t want to get to used to reading then, since I usually get workContinue reading “December 20, 2018: Time for Reading”

December 7, 2018: Reading Time

I want to maintain my reading pace, but so far it hasn’t worked out to my liking. Work has taken up the majority of my time. The only time I find time to read is at night, and that’s if I’m still coherent at that time. I know it’s an art to manage time inContinue reading “December 7, 2018: Reading Time”

December 4, 2018: Crafting

In the midst of prepping for my room this week, I realized that I need to gather materials for the parent gift I need to create for my familes. I already know that I won’t be able to make these gifts at work. I guess that’s why it’s taking me so long to do them.Continue reading “December 4, 2018: Crafting”

December 2, 2018: Prepping/Completing ‘After the Quake’

I spent most of yesterday prepping for the new monthly theme for my classroom. It took a good couple hours making sure I have what I needed. I know that it’s not ideal to do work-related tasks during the weekend, yet Andy came down with a cold, so I had the day to gather whatContinue reading “December 2, 2018: Prepping/Completing ‘After the Quake’”

October 25, 2018: Rest

It’s almost that time when I need to begin preparing for next month’s theme, but I just value resting when I’m home! It’s how it’s supposed to be, but a teacher’s life is always consumed with creating curriculum. Every single moment. All the time. Or at least for a couple days to make sure theContinue reading “October 25, 2018: Rest”

June 11, 2018: One More Day

Getting ready for our trip to Wildwood tomorrow. This day was filled with packing, trying on summer clothes (that still fit) to bring with me…my least favorite task, but I found some pieces to bring along! Now just watching some television before relaxing with my current book choice, ‘After Alice’ by Gregory Maguire. Tomorrow, unfortunately,Continue reading “June 11, 2018: One More Day”

May 4, 2018: Friday Thoughts

Picture Day at the center today. It’s always such a loopy time, and handling toddlers make it that much more interesting. Hoping it passes quickly lol Almost done with ‘Girl on the Train’. I don’t have too much time during the day to read it, but I’m plugging away at it! This weekend me andContinue reading “May 4, 2018: Friday Thoughts”

April 30, 2018: Every Time

I always have moments where I misplace things. I have things nicely prepared, ready for class the following day, and I unpack my things when I get to work, and the piece that I prepare with great detail is missing. Either I don’t look hard enough in my bag, or I simply forget it. ItContinue reading “April 30, 2018: Every Time”
