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.
News at Home: Back to School!
Well I went back to school (work technically) this week and… Wait for it… It wasn’t bad at all! My kids have matured a lot over break. To top it off, I have a clue what I’m doing and things they do just don’t phase me anymore. I’m still having serious trouble with my little kiddo that I suspect has autism and I’m just waiting for the results from testing, but even he did much better and I’ve figured out how to manage him better as well. I worked more than I would have liked because we had two new Kinder teachers – one walked out two weeks before the end of last semester and the other had passed away earlier in the year, both rooms had long term subs until now. Even though I’m supposed to be one of the newest to Kinder somehow I’m the one they came to with most their questions and I spent a lot of time helping them get their footing. I don’t mind through, and I do think k they are going to be great additions to our team. I brought home a little work this weekend, but for the most part I’ve been enjoying time with family and reading. Who’d have thought this was possible after the way things started in August!? NOT I!!
One thing I did realize this week is that no matter how much content I have available to post in this head or via book reviews, I just can’t manage a post per day. This week I posted through Tuesday and I was able to semi keep up with comments and visit other blogs. I was closer to the kind of blogger I want to be. So, that being said, I think that’s the blog schedule I’m going to have for a while. Saturday – Tuesday I’ll post, one post a day. It means it’ll take a while for me to get caught up in reviews but it also means I can reply to comments and visit other blogs and that’s really important to me.
Grrr! I had such good intentions this week to get to the gym. Bag packed and in the car all week. But I never made it out of there before 6. And this week I have book club Tuesday and parent teacher conferences on Thursday, so it’s going to be hard this week too. But my goal is an average of three times a week, so I’m going to try to make it tomorrow and Wednesday and Saturday.
I did really well with eating for though and I, of course, got in my 10k steps. I always get 10k in when I’m teaching.
Sleep needs work – I really struggled getting to sleep, which means I struggled waking up. Water was good though. So I met half my goals basically.
