It was a good day though I really have to resist getting caught up in the drama at work!


We started the day with our Terry Fox run. It was a different route this year, but it still seemed to work pretty well.

My students were super excited and I even had two dads come out and run/ walk with us:). It was perfect timing for me as I wasn’t sure how I was going to finish the Squad Runner mission, but this worked perfectly:)

We also had an assembly before the run where Terry Fox’s niece Kirsten came to speak. It was cool, but the principal started it when two classes weren’t even present yet:(

I got through reading with a couple of more students to determine their reading levels. It’s a long process, but I can’t do much else until I get it done.

It was another good math lesson, though it didn’t quite go where I expected as the worksheet didn’t match up well, so we just went with the children creating movement or people patterns and that went well!

Finally this afternoon we wrote about the Terry Fox run for our hallway writing and the children did a really good job!

It was another amazing day with the children:)

After school though the teachers were quite upset as there were rumors of an assembly tomorrow for orange shirt day. It turned out to be true and supposedly it’s on the electronic calendar (didn’t know we even had one) and we discussed it at the staff meeting (not one teacher recollects this???). Oh well, we’ll go sit in the gym tomorrow morning and see what happens.


I have had a berry kale smoothie, a larabar, apple slices, southwest chicken salad and a baked potato. I was really upset at lunch because they messed up my lunch lady lunch again. It was gluten free pasta but not dairy free. Thank goodness I had thrown my salad in by mistake!! 😖


I walked to and from work, got my run in with the children this morning, and then had my first night of Athletic Yoga again this evening. I’m doing it to spend time with my friend Corianne. As long as I think of it as a workout class and not yoga, it’s good. It is quite the workout though and I think I’m going to be sore tomorrow!!!😳


I am still working on my cowl. I knit about 6oz of yarn in 30 minutes so it is going to take me about two hours and forty five minutes to finish this. I had better carve that time out before Saturday morning!!


I have to apologize and ask for everyone’s patience as I’m getting behind in reading blogs. I set aside recess and lunch to read blogs usually, but I’ve been using this time to redo some posts with less pictures so I can continue to have pictures in my new posts. It’s unfortunately putting me behind:(

Well, here’s hoping for another good day tomorrow!

Have fun!

    1. Lol it is a little annoying, but we’ll see how it goes!
      Maureen I have to say sorry as I just found some of your comments in my spam yesterday. Please don’t think I ignore you, I’ll check there more often from now on!

      1. Yes it is! The first time I took it, I was expecting like a high speed hatha yoga and was disappointed, so this time I’m thinking of it as an exercise class

  1. I always love reading all your healthy eats- good thing you had that back up salad!! And no worries about the blog — you are busy, busy!! I have no idea how you do it all!

  2. We knew once you started work again, it would be difficult – I went to bed at 8:00 p.m. last night – I was just plain worn out and caught up in Reader so I went to bed … plugged my ears so I didn’t hear the dog on the corner go out at 11:00 p.m. Slept right through til this morning. I always sleep well but just go to bed too late now with blogging – oops! I like that you do a run for Terry Fox and how nice his niece came to the school. We heard about Terry Fox over here as well.

      1. I have to get back to my old ways – I used to be able to do some during the day at work but we have been so busy since the beginning of the year that I never had much of a chance, and by the time I got done with work, had dinner, etc. it was late. I am very late tonight, but I am going to sleep in tomorrow as it is going to rain – will try to walk in between the two expected rains. (Hopefully.) But this is way too late for me right now.

      2. I usually can get a few posts read during the day, but have just been way too busy at work and taking no breaks:(
        This is late for me and you’re three hours ahead of me! I’d be comatose!

      3. I decided not to set the alarm as I knew we expected a rainy morning – hopefully I can get out mid day but now they say rain tomorrow and Tuesday … both in the morning. I may have to break down and walk in the rain after all to get this goal achieved.

  3. Sorry to hear about the food issue – gah! I eat low-saturated fat to keep my cholesterol under control without drugs and I and a vegan got given coleslaw potatoes with butter at an event once and had to go running around sourcing food!
