My day didn’t go according to plan. It wasn’t all bad, just not what I was ready for!
I didn’t get up for a run this morning thinking that I should ease back into these long days. It’s been feeling like enough just to work all day, and I figured I had Lyndsay’s bootcamp after work that would kick my butt, so I slept for the extra fifty minutes:)
Unfortunately, Lyndsay’s parents showed up in town two hours early, so bootcamp was cancelled:( I was going to come home and go for a run, but I had other commitments:(. I guess it turned into an unintended rest day!
My students did amazing at an earthquake drill, way better than the older children!!! Yup that’s my competitive side coming through again 🤣
I had one little guy who was having a really tough day- shouting out bathroom words at lunch, stealing books during silent reading and talking, laying around on the carpet. It wasn’t a good combination with my being hangry!!!! When I talked to him he said he was tired so I said he had to go to bed earlier tonight! I sure hope he does as I don’t want another day like today with him! I definitely didn’t think I’d be dealing with this today!
We also started gymnastics today. This unit always makes me a little nervous as I have no skills in this area! I’ve never even been able to do a cartwheel!! I just try to keep them safe and work on balancing and rolls!!! They hopefully will have a teacher next year who is more gifted in this area and can actually teach them gymnastics skills!!!
I went after school to visit my co-teacher who had been home recovering from surgery. It was great to see her!! I definitely miss having her at work, but I’m glad she’s taking the time she needs as you definitely have to be able to hit the ground running as a teacher! What was even better was that I managed to get through the whole visit without peeling a single nail!! 🎊🎉
Tonight was knit night and I have absolutely nothing to show for it:(. I spent a lot of time looking for a pattern to use my DK merino yarn for. I finally found a Cowl pattern, but when I knitted the pattern once, it just seemed too boring. I wound a skein of yarn for my temperature scarf while I was looking for something else and finally found another Cowl pattern I will try. So for knit night, I have one rolled skein to show for myself. Not what I had planned!!!
The more I think about it, the more I like Nothing But Knit 2’s stash challenge. I was saying to another blogger who has her stash busting plans all laid out that I often find it difficult to use my stash because the yarn no longer has labels so I don’t know its weight🙁. I’ll have to solve this problem before I can get busy on the stash busting.
I had David’s Tea coconut cream pie tea today. It was okay, but nothing to write home about.
I only got one chapter of my book read today when I planned to read seven!
Well that is it for me tonight as I am super tired now. I just have to decide if I’m going to get up for a run in the morning as I have book club, a massage and yoga after school tomorrow.
