I am so happy that it’s Friday!  I’m starting off the weekend with a little catch-up over the Ultimate Coffee Date hosted by Coco and Deborah.  So grab a mug of your favorite beverage and let’s chat for a bit!

If we were having coffee…
I’d tell you that even though I’ve been complaining pretty much all year about school, I am a teeny tiny bit excited (a little nervous too) for the new school year in August.  I will have new students and will be teaching new Reading and Math curriculums.  Also, students will be in the classroom.  It has to be better than this year, right?

If we were having coffee…
I’d tell you that a former student sent me and other teachers a thank you note.  I read it and cried.  It made me very happy to read her note.  I know I may not make a difference in all of my students (hopefully another teacher does) but it is nice to hear from a former student.  Unfortunately I have not seen her in over a year and hope she continues to do well in school.

If we were having coffee…
I’d tell you that as of this morning I am 33% into my goal of running 1,200 miles this year.  I told myself that if I can get to 50% by the end of June then I will it at 1,200 instead of changing it to 1,000 miles.  I can do this!

If we were having coffee…
I’d tell you that yesterday was my nephew’s high school graduation.  He enlisted in the Marines and will leave for Camp Pendleton sometime this month.  Honestly I thought he would to college somewhere in IL.  I am very happy for him and cannot wait to celebrate with the family this weekend. 

If we were having coffee…
I’d tell you that I know it’s been warm these past couple of days but I’ve been EXTRA warm at night.  I remember being able to sleep comfortably at night with just a blanket.  Now even a blanket is too warm for me.  I wonder if it is me or it feels warmer in my apartment since I live on the 2nd floor.  It has to be the latter.  😅

  1. Well, you haven’t actually changed apartments . . . our bedroom is on the second floor and I can tell you the difference from the first floor is night & day. We open the windows, but have to close them up to run the AC at night so we can sleep. Heat rises!

    Yes, I do think next year will be better!

    Congrats to your nephew.

  2. Next year will be a great improvement as a teacher. I can’t imagine doing remote for so long.

    We hardly run our ac. I really hate it.

  3. Hope you are happier with your new school curriculum next year. Things will hopefully be back to normal! Congrats to your nephew and thank you to him for his service to our country

  4. Ahh, great job on all your mileage + yay for a new school year — it should be better than the last one (fingers crossed)!

    I think being on the second floor definitely makes a huge difference in heat!

  5. I always sleep with extra blankets – I’m not cold, but I do need the weight. Otherwise, i can’t sleep at all!

    School’s almost out!

  6. I’m sure next year will be better — and I bet kids will be happy to be back in school — at least at first. 😉 Our house is so much warmer upstairs and cooler in the basement — proof that hot air rises. 😉

  7. Our house is always warmer upstairs and in the summer it sometimes feels warm sleeping up there. Hopefully next year is a much better school year!

Thank you for your comment!
