Happy Sunday! How is everyone doing today? I swear it feels like it was just Monday. Another week at home doing lesson plans and activities as well as spending time with my cats. 🙂 I guess I shouldn’t really complain about it.
I ran 3 days this week. It is finally warmer here which made the runs more pleasant. I love running in shorts.
I signed up for Deborah’s RunBet Challenge so I had to make sure I got out there! Did you sign up as well?Did anyone see this? It was tempting to sign up until someone told me it is 612 miles. To date I’ve run 139 miles. No way can I run 600 miles in 4 months. Or can I? 🙂 I know I’ve mentioned that it is nice to run with no pressure, but how long is that going to last? I doubt any “real” races will take place this year so I am looking for some motivation.
Early in the week we got an email from the Principal that she was putting together a schedule so that we could go pack up our things in our classroom. Someone did inquire if masks, cleaners, would be provided for us. We were told to bring our own mask. I don’t know what happened but then another email was sent letting us know that that project was postponed.
Our last day of school is June 5th. I am not sure if we’ll go till June or stop on May 29th. I finally have my routine set up and am liking it. My favorite part is when my students log in to talk, read or discuss a book. Due to some restrictions set up by the District, I cannot see them but they can see me. I look very different than when I am in the classroom. Most days I do comb my hair. 🙂
In February I applied again to teach Summer School. For sure I thought that it would be cancelled. Nope. It will be done remotely. Now that I have no idea how it would work since half of my students now either turn in minimal or no work at all. I am trying really hard to be patient but honestly I am getting tired of it. I have about 3 that do almost all of the assignments – one has submitted all of them. I am thinking of buying a prize for him (maybe a gift card). Thoughts?
My uncle’s funeral was on Friday. We did not go but thanks to my cousins we did see it on YouTube. My mother felt as if she was there too. She still cannot believe that her brother is gone (no one can). She hasn’t been sleeping well but I will check with her doctor to see if she can take a sleeping pill. I worry because she takes medicine for diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Check out Lola also watching the funeral with us.
Are you excited it is May? Any goals for May?
