Welcome to My Sunday Post!
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.

I think Halloween is the first time I’ve had legitimate FUN teaching and been thankful to be in an elementary school – where we get to really embrace Halloween fun. Our school had a storybook character day on Friday – you could come to school in costume, but you needed to have a book that your character came from. The goal was to emphasize literacy. I dressed up as Fancy Nancy and my kids loved it.
I had a Belle, Dorthy, Sparkle Princess, Supergirl, Glenda the Good Witch, and a Power Ranger (yeah, I’m not sure he had a book, but whatever). The whole school did a parade through the halls at the end of the day Friday and it was genuinely a good time. For math, I told spooky Halloween stories for math word problems that they had to add and the kids had fun. And they even behaved most the day. Of course, the rest of the week sucked… but I’m not dwelling on that. Let’s just focus on the fact that Halloween was fun 🙂
On Saturday we went trick-or-treating with my step-son and his little brother. We did a bonfire afterwards with the whole family and roasted marshmallows (no one really ate candy lol!). If I didn’t have to go to work tomorrow I would be in a great mood. But one of my better weeks! And, since we have teacher in-service November 9th and I’m having surgery November 20th I only have 13 work days before I’m off for 6 days (not including the 4 weekend days)! Woot!
I think I’m ALMOST full scale blogging again! I’m have posts scheduled for the upcoming week and I even think I’ll be able to visit again! Thank y’all for being so patient with me and my slow return!
So when I registered my weight on My Fitness Pal this week it said I’ve lost 108 pounds! That’s like in the past 1.5 years I think, since that’s how long I’ve been using fitness pal. I don’t really keep track of my weight closely, I just make sure it’s consistently going in the right direction – so it kind of surprised me. It’s exciting – if only I didn’t have so much to lose I would be more excited.
