It was back to work for me today!

Exercise:

Amazingly I managed to get up at 6:15 to get out for a run. It didn’t go completely according to plan because I didn’t get out until 6:38. I think tomorrow I have to try it again but not allow myself to look at WordPress until I am stretching!  The late start did mean that I didn’t get to go as far, so only 3.18km this morning, but that does mean I am only 2.7km behind. I’m supposed to run with Dennis on Thursday night so that should be taken care of then:)  It was busy this morning as I saw 8 people out on the path at that time.

Teaching:

I was at work with plenty of time to spare, though I had already spilled my tea all over my hand and foot:(  We had a meeting, then the children for half an hour (it was awesome to see them), then another meeting for two hours and had two hours as prep for the week.  It seemed to be a busy day, but not too bad.  I like that it was agreed that we will have last year’s class for this week, which really simplifies matters.  Unfortunately, at this point, it doesn’t look like I am going to get to teach the same as Liane this year:(  I will continue to keep my fingers crossed something changes though!

Blog Hop

I am joining Teacher Turned Mommy for her September blog hop:)  So the first day of school…

This truly is the start of a new year for me, much more so than January.  Every year I have high hopes of all the things I am going to accomplish, but I also have anxiety about what my class will be like, whether I will be able to teach them all to read, what problems or drama will occur this year, etc?

However, with it being the first day of my school year I want to think about my goals for this year. I want to go through at least forty file folders (that’s one per week and I did get one done today😀), I want to avoid work weight gain (my weight today better be the highest of the year!) and I want to talk less and listen more. I am sure I will come up with many more things I want to do this year, but this will have to do for now.

Thanks Lori for putting this together.

Reading:

After a quick stop at the library, I have started my Bookclub book of How to Stop Time by Matt Haig. Let’s hope I can get it done by Sunday!

  1. sounds like a good start to your year. I’m sure your students from last year will enjoy seeing you for the first week of school (this process still makes NO sense to me, but hey it works). Thanks for joining my blog hop!

  2. I found you via teacherTurnedMommy’s blog hop. I’m like your goals for this New Year and am sure with enough tea inside you, as opposed to on you, you’ll succeed. Your trivia is a great. What fun!
