I debated sharing this in favor of staying positive, but it’s been a hard week. I have basically just worked and come home and I feel like I have been run over by a steamroller every day. A colleague said she is February tired in October. I concur, but I am not exactly sure why.
Last week we had active shooter training that we had to lead for our students and this week we have had fights occurring and had to change some policies because of this. It’s just hard.
My students are great, but it’s just hard. It’s hard to keep their focus. I think they are so distracted by what’s going on with their phones. What are they missing? If they aren’t on it, they are thinking about it, maybe?
I don’t know. I hate to start on a negative note, but I don’t want to be fake, either.
Erica, my co-worker and meal prep partner gave me an early birthday gift to complete my Day of the Dead patio. How cute!
I am reading this fall book right now. There is way too much talk about the main character’s pet hamsters so far so I am trying to block that part out. Very weird!
Tom’s company competed in a chili cook off and I got to go, too. The weather was beautiful!
Of course I voted for Tom’s!
Their theme was Talladega Nights and Tom had to be Ricky Bobby’s Dad.
They even had a cocktail called “Mountain Booze”.
We took Ernie on a walk before dinner and the trees and the sunlight looked so pretty!
And, Tom and I are enjoying watching Amazing Race this season.
What were your favorites this week?
