It has been quite the day!


The kids were fine today. We got through another reading lesson on pre-reading strategies and a math lesson on even and odd. I also managed to squeeze in assessment of rights and responsibilities, McCracken spelling and gym.

I spent the morning moments trying to get my phone to back up and then spent the afternoon free moments trying to get my new phone set up. Ugh

The most exciting moment came at lunch when I won a Starbucks gift card for the staff wellness challenge. I really wasn’t expecting to win and it was a lovely surprise! From this challenge I learned that I’m really good at getting physical activity into my day and really bad at getting anything social incorporated.


After having four other teachers try to help with my phone, I left school and got home five minutes before I was set to meet Dennis for a run. Needless to say, I didn’t get to take my hydration pack today. We got 5.71km done and it felt pretty good. I was worried my foot would still be sore from yesterday, so I wore brand new shoes, but I had no problems.


After a tea with Dennis, I ventured to the mall to get someone to set up my new phone. It turned out it wasn’t my fault, it was the fault of the WiFi I was trying to use at school. I think I’ve gotten everything set up, except my Garmin watch won’t pair, and of course this is the most important thing to me!😥😖. I am hoping that tomorrow it will just magically work because I’m not sure what I’m going to do if it doesn’t.

I have done nothing tonight except open apps, reset passwords, write passwords down and try to pair my watch.

The prize was exciting, the watch is frustrating and I’m hoping for a better day tomorrow!

Have fun!

  1. Good luck with your phone and watch. Grandson David has a new phone, and he has been happily playing with it for the last two days. So far, he hasn’t gotten too frustrated. He did say he changed one setting and couldn’t remember where he made the change.

  2. I have a burner phone that has data and WiFi, but I never use it for that. I did however splurge on a new iPad last week, which has been lovely, since my old one was and iPad2😳. So far it’s been a pretty simple swap out, but still lots to learn.
