It’s been hot here today and I feel like I have ogre feet. I really hope it rains tomorrow!


My day was slightly crazy, but probably no more so than usual. We did writer’s workshop and did an acrostic poem for our Father’s Day card.

We watched Ian- short film about inclusion that my principal had sent out. It definitely highlights that she has never taught elementary as it went completely over their heads!

This afternoon we had Michael Mitchell come to the school for a concert. It was very cool as he specializes in Canadian folk songs. Canada in My Pocket is probably his most famous song. It is very catchy and will be the centerpiece of my money unit this year.


After work I headed with many fellow teachers to a fundraiser for the wigs for kids foundation. One of our education assistants runs this every year. It was fun to sit and chat and catch up with some people o hadn’t seen in a while, but I was happy to come home too.

I’ve heard that a teacher from school won the 50/50 and two other teachers won baskets:)


I sat down tonight and finally finished my mom’s gift. As I told her- it’s not pretty, but it’s done and she’s getting it!


A slightly better day.

Breakfast- one egg with a little fake cheddar melted on it

Recess: 1/3 cup granola

Lunch: chicken burger

Snack: berry sorbet

Dinner: hamburger in a lettuce wrap (part of the fundraiser)

I’m not sure that burger was gf/df though as I’m not feeling spectacular right now.

Have fun!

  1. ugh sorry to hear you aren’t feeling well. I hope it passes quickly and is just you being over tired/stressed and not your food issues.

      1. Well…maybe it was just a bug. You’re so good at watching your diet. I’m trying to get better at doing that since my stomach has been a hot mess lately.

      2. I try to not deliberately eat gluten or dairy as it’s just not worth the two weeks of agony- nothing tastes that good!!!

      3. I love food, but it’s not loving me back. I think I’m going to have to cut out dairy too, especially since I’m lactose intolerant. I’m going to try to have my gallbladder looked at though. My stomach shouldn’t feel this bad all the time, and I shouldn’t constantly suffer with acid reflux and indigestion. 🤦🏽‍♀️

      4. Oh that would be dreadful! If it helps, I feel so much better now that I actually consider it worth it to give up gluten and dairy

      5. Yes oats are easily cross contaminated which is why I normally go to the expense of buying gf oats, but I didn’t even think of that when I bought the granola. I should check it
