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 – Recess Required!?!
Well we survived our audit this week at school and the administration was so grateful that they didn’t make us stay late at all this week for meetings or tutoring. Of course, I had so much work to do to make up for the extra work they piled on that I never got out of there before 4:30, but still, it was nice not to have meetings. We return to business as usual this week though, so fingers crossed I can find some way to still get out by 4:30/5!
The newest twist is that my school district recently had a board meeting where they voted to make 20 minutes of recess a requirement for all elementary students for the remainder of the year and 30 minutes for next school year. We are not allowed to make kids sit out any part of recess as a consequence for bad behavior. Now I’m not sure if I’m allowed to publically comment on this, even though I’m not actually saying the name of my school or using my real name. So I won’t. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions. I’m sure you know me well enough to know my complex thoughts on the topic.
On topics other than work – we’ve started planning the birthday party for my friend who passed away in December’s daughter. It’ll be her first birthday and me and my friend’s sister, Stacie, are throwing the party. Usually it would have been the three of us throwing the party, but we’re determined to make it as good as Stephanie would have. Complete with difficult to pull of themed decorations and treats. The theme is butterflies. I’m excited to do it, even though it makes me miss Stephanie that much more.
Nothing special to report, except that I suck at blogging and have fully accepted it. LOL. What I mean is that life keeps getting in the way of even my lighter posting schedule and we’ll see if I manage to get everything I planned to up this week. Fingers crossed!
Still haven’t made it back to the gym – guess that’s a February goal now! I tried to do a viritual 5k yesterday for the challenge, but underestimated how far I’d need to go and my route was too short, by about a mile. But that meant I got in my fun mile for the month, so that’s something. 5k is also a goal for February now. Eating continues to go well and I’m still losing pretty steadily, so that’s good. Just wish I felt like I was doing all I was supposed to with the gym.
