We all survived the last day and I now have seventeen days to do whatever I want! An awesome feeling for someone who normally has to plan every work day down to the minute!

The thermos had my treat- a homemade chai latte- for the last day of school. Normally I wander to work with just plain tea, but I figured the last day deserved some sort of treat:)

My way to work this morning:) It feels like Spring, but still cold in the morning. It was tough to convince the children they needed to wear their jackets!

Teaching:

It was a crazy busy day with a parent presentation about emergency preparedness (tough to keep six year olds interested in the last day before holiday), finishing up our read aloud of Matilda, gluing all of our art work into our portfolio and watching the movie Matilda all afternoon. We all survived and the classroom actually didn’t look too bad. The only thing I didn’t get to was the desk clean out but maybe we’ll do that the first day back.

I got out of there at 3:30, completely ready for April 3rd:)

Exercise:

I joined up with Lyndsay for a workout after work. She wanted to ramp it up as she’s hitting the Mexican beach this holiday, but I knew better. It turned out to be good I needed an easier workout because only one treadmill was working so I ended up on the elliptical. It was fine, but definitely not the crazy, sweaty workout of a run. We also did floor work of: deadlifts, lateral bench step ups, snatches, lateral steps with the band, bridges with the band, straight leg drops, and three other exercises I can’t remember for the life of me right now! Each was three sets of ten reps with cardio blast in between of twenty seconds hard, ten seconds easy. I did take it easier on the cardio, but it felt great to get back to working out!!!

My goal for my holiday is to run each and every day! We’ll see how it goes:)

Walking home from my workout in the gorgeous sunshine, knowing that I’m on holidays made me fly high!

Otherwise I’ve been taking it easy on the couch and trying to catch up on my blog reading, though I also really want to continue with the NetGalley book I’m reading right now!

Right now though, I’m exhausted so I’m off to bed. Pathetic I know on a Friday night, but I want to run in the morning!

Have fun!

  1. Enjoy the break! Ours is at the end of the month, but we are forced to cut it short by two days due to the amount of snow days we have had. Often, the district makes them professional development days because so many students are absent due to previously made vacation plans. I am obliged to work regardless, so I’ll have a little more company than usual. Enjoy!!

  2. enjoy your break. Hope you can take this time to get rid of all the germs that have been plaguing you and get back into feeling like yourself. I’m sure if nothing you will enjoy being able to go to be without setting an alarm clock.. that is always one of my favorite parts of vacation times

    1. I think my absolute favourite part is laying in bed with my tea in the morning thinking about what I want to do with my day:)

  3. 17 days? My girls would be so mad if they knew you got that much time off! They only get a week. How many days do you have to have school in Canada?

    Enjoy your break!!

    1. We are in session for 180 days. The two week spring break is new, only for the past three years as a cost saving measure. I’m loving it though!
