It has been a few days now where all my eyes want to do is close! Yes I have a doctor’s appointment coming up and I will ask to have my blood work done. Hopefully it will lead to an iron transfusion!

Teaching:

Today wasn’t a bad day. We got through printing v and music class. I prepped for next week and got lots accomplished. I was in supervision for recess and had to talk to a problem kid about being out of bounds🙄

We did bar graphs in math and went outside to draw our favorite snack bar graph with chalk. That was definitely a highlight, though it also showed me I have one little girl who has no idea!

This afternoon we did tulips for the windows. I’ll try to share a picture when they are up. The kids did better than usual at doing the modgepodge of the paper onto overhead film, but we had four spills of the modgepodge:(. My little ADHD boy did an awesome job of cleaning al the containers and paintbrushes without being asked so after school I took him a little treat.

We ended the day playing outside as we had a surprisingly warm, dry day when it called for rain all week!

Exercise:

I met up with Sarah and Dennis for a run and we got 6.84km in. I think Sarah is getting faster which is great and my heart rate only hit 178 which is an improvement over 200! Especially since it only went that high when I ran up a set of stairs. I hope this situation continues to improve and maybe I won’t need to tell my doctor about that and we can concentrate on the tiredness instead.

I also did my FitOn class today and I am starting to think they let a monkey choose the daily class as it was an upper body workout for the third day in a row!😫. I better have amazing arms for summer for this torture.

Knitting:

Before I got into the tub, I spent the evening knitting. In the mornings I have been working on my Rock It Tee as I want a new summer tee. At school, while visiting at lunch I’ve been working on the Ankers summer shirt as it is at the stockinette in the round point. Then at night I try to get a few pattern repeats done on my hitchhiker shawl. I’m not sure I’ll stick with this rotation as I don’t feel like I actually accomplish anything, but since I wore a new sweater yesterday, I’m okay with it for now.

I have also been working on my stitching, but have been going straight down a column. When talking to my mom tonight I came to the conclusion that I may not stick with this as though it keeps me from making a mistake, it also uses up way too much thread, makes the back messier and doesn’t show much progress. I’ll try to get more done before Sunday’s update.

Well I’m going to continue soaking for another five minutes and then crawl into bed with my book.

Have fun!

AJ

  1. Happy Friday AJ! As long as you have been running, it is weird that your heart rate is elevated. I hope you get your iron infusion and it results in an energy boost.

      1. I forgot about covid, it does affect the heart for awhile, so that could be it, but you would likely feel better with an iron infusion to speed your recovery.

      2. Oh I hadn’t heard that about covid. It was just a guess. My nerdy side makes me track all the data including average and high heart beat for my runs and the only thing that has changed between last year and this year is that I have had covid.
