I was doing some knitting this morning on my chunky vest, but I have to admit I’m not motivated to work on it as I really don’t think I’m going to have enough yarn:( I only had six ounces to start with, so I’m going to have to decide if I’m going to keep knitting until I find out I can’t finish it if I’m going to unravel now and use the yarn for something else??


I called my mom this morning thinking she would already be gone, but to my surprise I got one more phone call in with her before she’s gone.

The day was pretty good with the children. I am super impressed with how well they’re doing with their sight word booklets and home reading. I had to have the talk about reading levels that are meeting expectations, approaching and not yet meeting. I hope it spurs them on and doesn’t crush them!

We also made ourselves a skip counting anchor chart that each child can keep in their duo tangs. It went better than I was expecting:)

I even got a report card written after school. They are going much faster since my run problem solving:)

Just before I left work, this arrived:)

I was super excited as I had ordered some stuff from MEC. I guess the split the order and I didn’t realize as all that was in this box was my new headlight. I’ll have to do some dark running to try it out! I do hope the rest of my stuff comes soon though!


After an appointment to get my eyebrows and eyelashes done, I picked up my friend C for Athletic Yoga. It was going pretty good until I accidentally dropped the block onto my neighbour, then I flicked my ball into the middle of the room and my final move was to flip my block during the plank jacks and fall face first into the concrete floor. I’m told it was quite the thunk and it was loud enough that everyone else stopped:(. I have to admit my nose hurts and I have a bit of a headache, but no black eyes yet, thankfully!


I met up with a guy at a local brew pub tonight. First he invaded my personal space when I arrived, then he already had a beer and didn’t even offer to get me anything. Then he spent the entire time staring at my chest (I was wearing a sweater and jacket as it was cold) and he couldn’t make conversation. Needless to say there won’t be a second date and I’m actually glad I didn’t mess up my Clean November Challenge for him!

Ugh and now I’m going to bed!

Have fun!

  1. I’m sorry your date didn’t work out! In this day and age it must be very difficult to find someone decent. I’m relieved that I’m married as I would have no idea at this point.

      1. Oh that’s an awesome story!!! It gives me hope. I hope to meet the right guy, but I have a pretty good life even if I don’t

  2. That date sounds awful. It is bad enough it could be the start of a romance novel, where the main character has a bad date before she falls for her best friend/co-worker/barista/accountant. I hope your next date goes better.

    1. I wish that would happen to me, but my friends are all women and I work in the suburbs in an elementary school so I really don’t meet guys! I need a Hallmark moment!

  3. Isn’t it the best when you have your eyebrows done?! I can never keep up though, hah. Sorry that date didn’t go so hot! Glad the November challenge is going great 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Yes! My eyebrows and eyelashes are so blonde it looks like I have none, but I never time it right either!
      Thank you! I hope you have a great weekend too!

  4. Sorry about the yoga face plant and the bad date – ugh. I had some pretty bad ones, like the man who laughed at my tomato salad then abandoned me in London or the one who insisted on accompanying me almost all the way back home when we went out. In the end I made a friend and then he turned out to be Mr right eventually.

    1. Ugh it was horrible! I have one more blind date and then I’m done! I have a good life, why do I keep putting myself through this?
