I seem to have to take multiple stabs at everything today🙄


The new system for helping or struggling readers is an awesome idea, except I had to teach my morning lesson three times as kids were coming and going at different times:(. I don’t really want to say, don’t bother doing this, but there isn’t much that comes without a lesson🤔

We had an assembly today that wasn’t particularly amazing, but took up a half hour:)

This afternoon my students thought they were in heaven as they had silent reading, then centers and then outside playtime. Not a whole lot of learning going on today! I thought I’d have extra time to work with a couple of students during centers but spent the entire time dealing with sorting and separating the barbies into “fair” centres🙄


After school we had bootcamp with L. I have to admit it wasn’t my best bootcamp as my legs are still tight from what I’ve already done this week. We had to move to the music room as our principal scheduled the gym for an after school club, but we made it work. It’s just not as much fun without the sound system. We did: medicine ball burpees/iso squat with a front medicine ball raise, bench lunges, bench toe taps/rows, jumping jack to plank jack/reverse mountain climber, side plank with leg raise, inside foot touch/ upright row to lateral extension, frogger jumps/ mountain climbers, banded side steps to jump/ front plank. Hopefully it was enough to keep the muscle building!


After walking home and quickly getting my house tidied and grabbing some dinner, I had Knit night with a friend. I managed to sew in some more ends on the temperature cowl. I have five sections of ends still to do.

I also started my next sweater three times. This pattern is from a book, but my gauge must be way off as it calls for 150 stitches which is about 50 more than I need. I’m not sure what I’m going to do about it yet:(

Well I’m as exhausted as ever, so I’m off to bed.

Have fun!

    1. You should totally try one Abbey! I’m just having difficulty because I was going off the pattern instead of just doing what I know fits me.

  1. You should take an epsom salt bath! It helps me with sore muscles and I know other people like them to reduce soreness as well.

    You could try adjusting the ratios of the pattern. Since the one calls for 150 but you only need 100 stitches, try to see if reducing anything by 1/3. Maybe that would work for you.

    1. I didn’t even think of a bath- good idea. Though it’s been three days now so it’s probably gone.
      I think I’m just going to go with what I know fits.
