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.

The big thing in my world right now is my surgery (having gallladder removed) coming up on Friday. I went to the doctor on Monday to see about this cold I’ve been having a hard time kicking and they gave me a TON of medicine. The approach was aggressive because I need to be healthy going into surgery. I’m feeling much better and only have a mild cough from time to time now. Follow up appointment tomorrow to clear me for surgery!
School continues to be…. school. IDK how to feel about it anymore. On one hand, I do know what I’m doing finally and things are really not so GOSH DARN HARD anymore. I even have moments where the kids really make me laugh and, yeah, they’ve totally grown on me. Even the worst ones do some really cute stuff. We spent time talking about Veteran’s Day at school at lot this week and what it means to be a Veteran, etc. The art teacher is a Veteran, so I used him as an example to make it real for them. They made him thank you cards and they came up with what to write. Several wrote things like “Thank you for saving my life.” or “You are very brave.”(with creative spellings of course). I thought it was sweet and it was cool to see them getting the point. And they were SO EXCITED to give him their cards! I wish I could say I loved it – I can’t. It continues to be a struggle and frustrating, but I don’t hate it anymore. Now that I finally have the tools for dealing with such young kids, it’s not a constant losing battle. And… I apparently don’t suck as a teacher. They had testing (yes, in Kindergarten!) and all my kids have grown so much. While some kids did fail the Reading exam, our class average was passing AND everyone passed the math. So I’m giving myself a little pat on the back 🙂
COYER sign-ups are Saturday!! I’m not sure how it snuck up so fast… oh right, teaching Kindergarten LOL! But it’s here and I’m not quite ready, but I’m so excited either way. Thank goodness I have great co-hosts!
Another topic for discussion at the doctor was my weight loss. I’ve been ORDERED to eat more calories… which is a bit frustrating, since I’ve spent the last few years getting myself able to eat fewer (under doctor supervision) to lose weight. But something’s changed – could be just the stress – and I’m officially losing too quickly. They did some blood work as well, but no one called me with results, so I’m assuming that means nothing worrisome showed up. I guess I’ll know for sure tomorrow.
