It was a fine day, made better by sunshine:)
My new student didn’t show up today but that turned out to be a good thing because my other little girl who doesn’t speak English went back to crying today:( ugh!
I had a heart attack after my prep when two of my boys were missing and I figured out nobody had seen them since recess! I finally found them in the boys change room and it took them a while to appear and it sounded like they had climbed behind things and were hiding. To make it even more interesting one little guy had gone to change out of muddy clothes and was doing all this in his underwear. They don’t teach this in teacher training🤣
I spent the afternoon outside coaching sprints. One of the grade three teachers isn’t athletic and so we switch classes (not that I would call myself athletic!). I do enjoy working with the children on their running though! Even better- it was sunny out there:)
I had a parent meeting after school, but it went fine. The counselor was with me and I love it when I have a second person in a meeting. This boy is a designated behavior but we haven’t been having trouble with him. It was tough to find a balance as I’m very happy but also very aware that he could go back to having trouble with another teacher.
They power washed my deck today and after my nap I decided that I should get down to business and get everything wiped down and put back. Wouldn’t you know that I just finished doing this when I got a note that they hadn’t finished and would need to work on it again tomorrow🤦🏼♀️
I got out for my run tonight though quite unwillingly. I don’t know why I didn’t want to run, but I got 6km done so I’m happy. I was super happy when at one point it told me my current split pace was 5:59😀
There were tons of people out so I think I need to go back to doing it right after school. I’ll try that tomorrow:)
I would be the first to admit that I am quite frugal when it comes to money. I have to be careful because I have a mortgage on my own, but honestly, I’ve always been like this. Every time I’ve needed headphones- I end up with the $20 ones that fit over my ear. They are okay, but never awesome and I always end up playing with them, knocking the cord and having to adjust them during runs. I have a small head and small ears! I had heard of the Aftershokz Trekz Titanium wireless headphones, but had avoided buying them as I wasn’t sure they would fit and they are super expensive. That was until my friend talked some sense into me- $145 wasn’t going to seem that expensive when I use them everyday, sometimes several times a day. In March I gave in and ordered a pair in the mini size. These are not the newest model as I couldn’t find them in the mini size. Well I’ve been using them consistently for a month now and have to say they are worth the money. From the first day, I put them on and haven’t had to touch them yet. I didn’t even have trouble working them or setting them up, which for me is a major plus. I find them light, they stay put, and they have good sound quality. I also find that my ears don’t get sore like they used to from having something in them. I don’t have great hearing so I wasn’t sure that bone conducting sound would work for me, but it does. If you’re looking for a new set of headphones- I would recommend these:)
Well, I’ve earned going and curling up in bed with my book so that is exactly what I’m going to do!
