I will be on Winter Break next Wednesday. Some districts start today. I am not complaining since some go back to work on January 3rd and I go back on the 10th. I am happy with the extra 2 days we get for our break.
This week our students have taken a 4 MAP tests (state required). We’ve also done some fun activities which they seem to love. Two students are already on vacation so now I am left with 20 students.
Even though my break is 2 1/2 weeks, I am very excited about it. Let me tell you what I am looking forward to during that time.
☃️ Not be out running in the dark. I won’t have to be at work anymore at 8:30am. I know I will wake up early anyway, but I will not be out running that early. Sometimes I don’t mind running in the dark but I could use a break from it.
☃️ Not drive to school or anywhere else. I plan to leave my house just for running, some doctor appointments for my mother, and to get groceries. The rest of the time I will be at home on my couch or bed.
☃️ Watch TV. Right now I am obsessed with “Castle”. Did anyone else watched it? I remember when it was on TV but didn’t watch it from the beginning. Now I am on season 5 (out of 7) and am enjoying it a lot.
☃️ Read. I know I enjoy watching TV but I also like to read. Right now I have 3 books that Wendy wrote about in her blog. I also have the movie “A Star is Born” that I want to see.
☃️ Teach a Winter Break Boot Camp to my students. Is it weird that I am excited about it? This session is one week for two hours each day. It will be online and will consist of one hour of Reading and one hour of Math. I can choose to do it anytime between 8:30am-3:00pm. I will be doing it in the morning to have the rest of the day off to watch TV and read. 😀

Enjoy your break. You deserve it. I think you picked some good things.
I’d love to be able to run whenever
Thank you! Counting down the days.
I am sure you will enjoy your winter break. Running a little bit later will be nice this time of the year. Yes, a star is born is a fabulous movie
Looking forward to seeing it!
You definitely deserve a break! I hope you enjoy your rest and get in all kinds of relaxation 😉
I hope you have great weather for all those runs out in the daylight!
It’s funny, we watched Firefly & are now watching The Rookie (both star Nathan Fillion, who is the star of Castle) but we never watched Castle. May have to rectify that. 🙂
How is that show? Another character from Castle is also in The Rookie was well.
We both like it. We were actually surprised at how good it is! Sadly we don’t have Hulu.
Sounds like a much needed break! Enjoy your down time and Merry Christmas!
Thanks, Erica. One of these days I will make it to the lakefront and hopefully run into you.
Great to hear you’ve got a nice break coming up! It will be nice to be able to run in daylight.
Oh definitely! I could get a break from my headlamp and my vest.
