Since I have started teaching, I am finding each day that I love it more and more. Way more than I ever thought I would. Sometimes, when you find something you love, it is easy to forget about everything else. I’ve started making to-do lists for myself so I don’t forget about those other things. Other important things. Like, my masters degree. Heh…heh…
Thank goodness for to-do lists. I’ve been rather successful this week considering that I am still fighting off this yucky cold or whatever it is. I still blame it on the germs at school that the kiddos are bringing me, and I heard on the radio that it takes teachers two years before they are immune to most public school germs. This winter could be an interesting one. Fer sher. But there is no such stress that a good old-fashioned bedtime snack can’t fix.

I was in class today, and I sneezed so many times that after about five or so, the class stopped “blessing” me. Now, I think that the more the better – come on, people, I’m sick. Bless me!!! Anyway, if I could figure out how to input a sound file in here, I would because my prof records every lecture and when I went to re-listen to a portion from today’s lecture that I didn’t quite catch the first time, I could hear myself hacking away in the background. Lovely. I’ve been sucking down hot tea and honey all day. My vocal chords are done for and the tea/honey combo helps soothe.

Unfortunately, I’m struggling just a little with my workload. It seems like some days I am able to do more than others. Being a little under the weather, I’m more fatigued than normal. When I was a kid, I hated nap time. I had the option to either nap or read my book in bed, as long as it was “rest time.” My all-time favorite teacher nicknamed me the “Reading Queen” on my first day of kindergarten and still calls me that to this day. Well, I had to live up to that title, so naturally, I chose to read my book during “rest time.” I still love to read every night before closing my eyelids and I don’t regret reading during my nap time as a kid – but I really regret not taking those naps. I would give anything to have daily nap time again. I took a nap yesterday and another one today and it was wonderful. But, it set me back a little. All well, I just added nap time to my to do list and then crossed it off so I feel more accomplished. It works that way, right?
One item that will always and forever be on my to-do list is reading. I always make time to read. Even if it means one less hour of sleep. Reading has always been one of my favorite hobbies. Preferably in my cozy warm bed…
|Yeah, this happens.|
Currently, I’m reading the First Family by David Baldacci. On loan from the Viper Pilot’s mom. She is yet to loan me a book I don’t love, but this one is chart topping. It’s one of those books where you glance at the clock, realize it is 11:00 pm and you’ve been reading for an hour and go, “Ehhh, just one more chapter.” I cannot put this book down.
My next read is something a little more unique. Even though I have been dating the Air Force for the past seven years, with the Viper Pilot entering the fighter pilot world, I figured it probably wouldn’t hurt to stick my nose in this book. I bet I don’t know nearly as much as I think I do.
Another item on my to-do list is my workouts. I’ve been busting my booty to get in shape by our big day. The only way that is going to happen is if I start early. I was doing so well last spring and then I went to Europe and fell off the bus. 3-4 months later, post engagement, I decided I’d better get back on the bus rather than wait until a week prior to the wedding. Oh hey, Supreme 90.
|Yes. Yes, I am ready. Er, I think…
Glutes, meet jump lunges. Jump lunges, meet my rear end. Ooof…
|The little sense of taste I have was happy with this meal.|
|I can’t stop giggling.|
