Hello there! I am finally on Winter Break! How is it that I made it through almost 4 months of teaching online (again)? I’ve had some great but also horrible moments. We’re supposed to head back on January 11th so we’ll see how it will be like with a hybrid schedule.
This week was a blur because the days went by fast. My goal was to make it to Friday. 🙂
I went to school on Monday morning so I had to get out earlier than usual. It was dark but not too bad. The next day I went out again while it was dark and didn’t like what I saw. Ice! Dang, it freaked me out because I am always afraid of falling. I did see a pretty sunrise!
Thursday morning I slept in again and just had time to run 20 minutes instead of 3 miles. It’s weird how sometimes I have no problem waking up at 5am but then struggle to get up at 7am.
Saturday was 6 miles with the last 2 at a faster pace (11:00-11:15). Mile splits were 11:11 and 11:08. It made me happy that I ran the last two miles without stopping but just quickly slowed down a little bit to cross the street. I was surprised at how warm it felt – almost 40 degrees. Well, to me that feels warm for December. 🙂
This week we had different themes to get into the holiday spirit. I don’t have pictures for all of them but just the “fun” ones. It was fun to see the students get into the spirit too. You can tell that in the last photo (Thursday) I look very TIRED. Or is it the camera?
I applied again to be on the Brooks Team and was rejected again. I also applied to be a Oiselle Volée Leader and was not accepted. I am bummed about it but am happy with the two ambassadorships I did receive (Koala Clip and PickyBars). Hopefully I will get good news about Nuun.
Any fans of “The West Wing”? I am on season 7 and really like the show. I still cannot believe I never watched it when it was on regular TV. There were a few episodes that were boring and/or I was lost because I had no idea what they were talking about – politics is UGLY. The best part is seeing a Latino candidate for the presidency and winning. Yes, I did read about it. Next show to watch is “Selena” though I’ve been hearing positive and negative reviews.
Pleased with how my running went this week. Except for switching my workouts on Thursday and Friday, I did just what my coach asked me to do. So far the weather hasn’t been too bad and I am really hoping it stays like that a bit longer..or at least till Spring.
My sister sent this to me and it brought a HUGE smile to my face. So many emotions. The past couple of months have been rough. I have struggled but also know that I have done the best I can. No matter what, I know my kids like my class and care about me just like I care about them. Believe it or not, but I will miss them during break.
Thank you teacher! See you tomorrow!
