It wasn’t a bad day, just not particularly great either ๐Ÿ˜‚

Teaching:

I started the day with track practice. The parent who sent the email to my principal last week about my leaving children unattended, stood and watched the entire practice. I hope she heard me talking to the grade three boys about the fact that they had not followed my directions! I can take criticism, but it bugs me that after having had her son for two years, she would automatically believe I would leave children unsupervised. Grrrrr!

We had workout Wednesday this morning and I’m still enjoying running around the school with the children more than doing aerobics in the gym. Maybe it’s that the outside time signals summer coming:)

I got some geometry assessment done during math and actually only have six children left which is good:). I was telling the children that after this we just have games to play in math for the rest of the year (to hopefully cement their basic skills)!

This afternoon we had the jog-a-long assembly. It was nice that my co-teacher won the pizza party! As a staff we were happy the parents changed to a family group base for points rather than class based as it just seems more fair.

I lost my parent driver sheet after school and spent too much time looking for it, with my co-teacher’s help. I commented that I so dislike being unorganized and she said I’m not, just trying to do too many things at once. I think she may be right!

Baking:

I had no plans for this evening until a colleague asked if I would make something gluten free and dairy free for the bake sale tomorrow. I started to make Oh She Glows cinnamon buns and realized very quickly they weren’t going to turn out. I stopped to pick up cream cheese and got home to realize it wasn’t going to work to drown them in cream cheese frosting because I got herb and chive cream cheese๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™The cinnamon buns aren’t worth frosting anyways

Can you say dry??? Thankfully I picked up a container of the gf/df cookie dough and got some cookies made from that. They aren’t very fancy or interesting, just chocolate chip, but they will have to do!

I will definitely be trying the cinnamon buns again with a different flour. I’ve been craving cinnamon buns for 7 years, at some point I’m going to have a good one!!

Exercise:

I was having a very difficult time getting myself to go out for a run tonight and I don’t really know why. I am still feeling off and pudgy from the dairy attack so that may be part of it. The fact it’s turned super hot here may also be playing a part. I combed myself into going by telling myself I had to go out anyways to get the groceries so I’d run before. I managed 3.4km in the shady trail, at a good fast pace for me and called it a night!

Well my night was nowhere near as relaxing as I planned, but here’s hoping for a little knitting before bed!

Have Fun!

  1. Parents today are crazy haha *insert eye roll* Granted you do hear about the terrible teachers who do leave students unattended for a while but at the same time you can’t always have eyes on every child. Plus kids need freedom to learn!

  2. Well, sounds like a PRODUCTIVE day, if not a very GOOD day. Ha ha! I couldn’t imagine having parents breathing down my neck while I try to train their children! I would lose it. Ha ha!
    Come on, Herb and garlic cream cheese and cinnamon buns?? You could start a trend!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. sorry your rolls didn’t turn out as you expected, at least you didn’t make awesome rolls and have the wrong cream cheese? I hate when parents think they know what is going on based on the information of a child who is in trouble. gesh! oh well the countdown is on

  4. I am picturing that cream cheese you bought … ๐Ÿ™‚ But at least you made cinnamon rolls – I could not even attempt to make them. I once burnt the slice-and-bake cookies. A whole batch. I have no domestic skills at all.

  5. There are those days! I was so tired the other morning I really wanted to go back to bed. Yet, I found myself out on the road for a “run” and took a route that had every crazy, huge hill in it as well. 5ish miles later I dragged back. Sometimes I’m so stubborn. I figured slow was better than not at all ๐Ÿ˜›

  6. Your cookies look great! The cinnamon buns are hilarious! They definitely brought a smile to my face. I’ve made buns like that too! Now I just buy them from a local bakery. The herbed cream cheese on the buns might start a trend though. Now, I’m getting hungry!

    1. Lol I was too chicken to try the combo. The cinnamon buns went into the garbage when I realized they werenโ€™t worth the calories
