A better day…
I got up this morning and did another deck of cards workout- this time cantering on the abs. I had to do crunches, leg raises, flutter kicks and sitting twists. I just keep telling myself it’s a good thing I’m doing🤣
I didn’t walk to work today as my friend Lyndsay needed a ride. Her husbands car broke down yesterday so he was taking hers.
I really fought going to run club tonight, but I ended up going. This is strange as I usually love Tuesday night clinic. I’m going to blame the cold! It was leader’s choice and we ended up doing a follow the leader where you run in a line and the last person has to sprint to the front. It was a bit of a challenge as I got two curves every time!!!! Grrrr! It’s done though and another run:) One of the women I was running with gave me a good idea though to sprint the last 100m of every workout to build up my speed. I may just try this!
Now I just have to decide if I’m going to run tomorrow morning or work out as I will only get one done???
First thing this morning I asked for five volunteers to make another poppy like we did for art on Friday, to complete our wreath for the assembly. I was really surprised by who volunteered- two of my most boisterous boys!!! They didn’t do too badly and the wreath is complete and ready for Thursday. I’ve even selected the children who will carry it up- yay me! Ready ahead of time for once:)
We started our new science unit on sound and light today- I’ve got to get hustling as I need to comment on it for the report card😳 It seems as though, no matter how much we cram into every day, it still becomes a rush at the end to cover things:(
I had one little guy in my class make me two pictures today. I have no idea what they are, but it was a sweet gesture, especially as I put him in the hall first thing this morning to think about why we don’t lay on the carpet! LOL
I found out this morning that the little girl who spent the first two months of school crying (and who hasn’t cried for two weeks!) will be gone for two months!!! All I could think was that I’ll have to go through this whole process again and it was painful enough the first time!! My mom, the ever optimist, says she’ll be two months older so maybe she won’t cry. I’m going to hold onto that hope!!
It was almost like Christmas at work this morning as my co-teacher was given some hand-me-downs this weekend and there were three items that she thought would fit me. I’m too cold to try them on right now, but tomorrow I should have time to do that and enter them into my clothing app.
Some of my friends and family think I’m crazy but I use the Stylebook app to keep track of my clothes. I’m nerdy enough that I enjoy the stats it gives me about price per wearing, etc but it also lets me make sure I’m wearing all the clothes I have or getting rid of them. I love having it when I’m out as then I know exactly if I already have a similar item or if I have something I’ll be able to wear with a new purchase. It’s a free app and I would totally recommend it for anyone who likes to stay organized, forgets what clothing they already own, or is nerdy enough, like me, to enjoy the stats🤣
Learning Services at the district made us lunch today and I could even have stuff. We had vegetable pasta soup with gf pasta, gf bagels, chips and crackers. There was also cream of potato soup, buns with cheese, Chicago mix, jelly donuts,timbits, chocolate bars and muffins but I couldn’t eat them. I’m thankful I got to participate and it was yummy!
My cinnamon buns last night turned out very dry, unfortunately that didn’t stop me from eating them:(. I am such an emotional eater😞. This evening I’ve gotten the rest broken up and the bread pudding is in the oven right now. I sure hope it’s good enough to take to work!
This is the recipe I tried and I’ll let you know tomorrow how it turned out. I really don’t like making something that I can’t taste test before I serve it to other people:(
I’ve known her since I was in grade eight and I don’t want to count up how many years that is! She is just one of those friends that has always been there and we still never run out of things to do. I managed to get her birthday present to her within a week so I’m pretty happy! Her birthday was on the 2nd so this may even be a record!🤣. I’m just always thankful to have her in my life as she’s definitely a highlight! It was also great just to get out of the school at a decent time!
I had given Lyndsay a ride down the hill when I went for tea so she could get a workout in at the rec Centre across the street. After tea, I was going to head back up to work as I was taking Lyndsay anyways, but fate intervened! As we got to school, Lyndsay realized she didn’t have her key so we went back down the hill and retraced her steps until we found it, thankfully quite quickly! I realized she must be a good friend as we had fun even looking for a key in the dark with our phone flashlights! LOL we did have to explain ourselves to a few people! By the time I ran her back to work, it was time to go to run clinic so no more work for me. I’m sure it will all still be waiting for me in the morning!
Well, I think that’s all I’ve done today and I really want to finish my current book so I can have fewer on the go, so I’m off to snuggle under the covers with it:)
