Whew! I can honestly say that this week went by fast! As usual, it was busy at work but still very productive. Parent/teacher conferences are on November 12th. Our school is doing student led conferences and I need to get some of my students ready for it. The main difference from traditional conferences is that in student led conferences, the students do most of the talking. I know I complain that my students talk a lot but yeah no so much for conferences. I have 16 students and will be doing individual/traditional conferences for 9 of them.
I am not sure what is going on but I was very tired l after school. I took a few naps. Did the race affect me that much?
I will have my race recap on Tuesday. The Detroit Free Press TCF Half Marathon was so much fun. The best part was running in Canada. If you want to run it next year, the date is October 18, 2020. Save the date!
Monday morning I saw a gorgeous sunrise!
My mother spends the weekend with me and my sister. It gives her a change of scenery plus it gives my sister a break (the one she lives with). Her caregiver drops her off on Thursday afternoon and then I take her home on Sunday evening.
On Thursday, after my nap, I was craving pozole. I called a local restaurant to make sure they were selling it. They did so my mother and I went there. It was yummy!
Saturday morning I woke up very cold. I did not want to run. I am NOT ready for this “cold” weather. Well, I finally went out for 2 miles. I overdressed. I was warm and sweating and it was OK. 🙂
My babies finally cuddled! Mateo is a trouble maker and likes to pick on Lola. He chases her, bites her, and jumps on her ready to play. She does not like it at all. There were both on the sofa napping and then somehow Mateo moved closer to Lola and went back to sleep.
Today’s run was GORGEOUS!!! It was warmer than yesterday. I ran 3 miles and in shorts. Fall is my favorite season! On December 14 I will be running the Kiawah Island Half Marathon. I have my ticket but still need to find a place to stay. I leave Friday morning and will come back on Saturday after the race. I might go in on Thursday or stay an extra night so I can explore a bit. Have you been there?
I don’t really hate Halloween but I do hate how chaotic it is at school. Students are allowed to come to school in costumes, so you can imagine the excitement. Because of said excitement, students are not in the mood to work so it is hard to do any teaching. Plus, we have a parade around 1 and then a Halloween party. I believe the party is optional but really can I say “No”? I don’t wear a “real” costume but just a small witch hat and a pumpkin skirt.
I didn’t run a lot this week due to recovering from my half marathon. I was more sore than I thought I was going to be. I felt like I had run a marathon. Well, that’s what I get for not training properly. 🙂
Have you eaten pozole? Did you like it? Are you a Halloween fan?
