that I am trying to freak my BFF out by posting THREE days in a row.
Today was a good day. I completely finished my classroom (and promptly forgot to take pictures) and I must say that it looks good. Even better than last year, perhaps. The parents come tomorrow and all I have to do is plug in the air fresheners as soon as I get there in the morning so that my room smells pleasant.
We have a new online grading system this year and, I have to tell you, the thing has me stymied! It is really hard to figure out and the lesson plan part of it is complicated. I am not going to stress out about having plans done by Friday. We have Friday off (have I mentioned how much I LOVE my principal?!?) and I am going to work on my plans then. I am so excited about this bonus day off! The weather is supposed to be nice so I am going to do some work and then maybe go out for lunch at a place where I can sit and knit for a while....with a good cup of coffee. I'd love to go into the city but that would be WAY more fun with someone else. Hint, hint, BFF. ;o)
I'm literally in the middle of typing a "Welcome Back" letter to the parents and I am stuck. I feel like it sounds kind of phony even though it is totally sincere. I need to finish it tonight, though, so I can put it in my packet for tomorrow.
I have been pretty diligent with my eating this week. I don't know if I have officially lost any weight because I refuse to get on the scale right now. I am trying to focus more on making healthy choices rather than a number on the scale. I did try on a blouse that I bought last Friday, though, and it felt a little looser. That made me feel better and gave me a little more willpower. I was so proud of myself on Monday...I bypassed the Danish and other sweets that were provided for us for breakfast. I happily ate my Greek yogurt and didn't feel like I was missing out on anything.
Ok. I have to get back to this letter!
