Random Thoughts Thursday

• I get a lot of callous on my right foot.  For as long as I can remember, it is always in the same area.  It gets very hard and sometimes painful.  I’ve been using a callous/corn shaver from Walmart and so far have had no problem with it.  It is easy and quickly removes the hardened skin.

• Last weekend was the NYC Half Marathon and I regret not signing up for it.  I remember last year I said I was going to sign up for this year.  Then when it was time to enter the lottery, I didn’t.  For sure next year!  I feel like I am missing out.

• I submitted my name in the lottery for the Marine Corps Marathon.  I haven’t run a marathon this year (next month) and am already thinking of another one.  If I don’t get picked, my backup is The Hartford Marathon.  I didn’t know that there were 11,000 guaranteed entries available (Wednesday morning) on a first come, first serve basis.  Bummer.  If I would have known, I would have signed up.  


• One more week till Spring Break!  I am very excited.  🙂

• Parent/teacher conferences were on Tuesday.  I have 24 students and 22 parents showed up.  Not bad.  It was a long and exhausting day.  However, one parent got on my nerves.  I don’t think I’ve ever met him and he didn’t show up at the last conference in November.  He had the nerve to let me know of his disagreement with how I handled a situation with his son back in December/January.  He also make a comment about how I don’t check every day his reading log.  I was very annoyed.  But I remained calm.  I cannot remember what I said but I just wanted him to leave the room.
