Happy Memorial Day weekend everybody!
The weather looks a whole lot better than what they were calling for today.
I’m starting to think that being a meteorologist is the way to go. You get paid to guess at the weather, and you don’t even have to be right! ;) Thursday they were calling for it to be 73 degrees with scattered showers. Last night they were saying it would be cloudy and raining on and off all day. Now:
Hopefully it will stay this way and Larry and I can go to our new pool for the first time! ;) We went running by it the other day and watched the swim team practice. I can’t wait!
I want to take a minute to explain why I haven’t been posting every day the past few weeks. At first I wanted to apologize, but then I realized that a simple explanation might do.
I love to write this blog. It has brought me so much happiness. I have a more positive outlook in life and feel less stressed (most of the time!). It has been therapeutic for me.
This being said, there are some days, after a long day of work and daily to-dos, that posting would just be stretching myself too thin. On those days, I have to make a choice. Some of those days I choose to write, and I feel myself relax, and I’m happy I did it. However, on others, I choose to relax with Larry and take a day off. That feels pretty good, too!
This week was SOL testing week, and work was pretty crazy. Have you ever tried to keep a class of 22 eight year olds silent for 3 hours, five days a week??? Talk about exhausting!
Thank goodness testing is over now, and we can go back to a somewhat normal routine. My goal is to get the kids outside as much as possible. We are going to do a lot of Project Learning Tree lessons. These kids need to be outside in nature, moving and being active. Not stuck in a classroom, being silent, and filling in tiny little bubbles for hours on end. I could go on and on about the demise of public education in America, but I won’t bore you with politics today 😉
Today I plan on going for a 5 mile run, followed by a thorough house cleaning, Target trip, and possibly a little Memorial Day sale perusing at the mall. When Larry gets home we are going to the pool and then out to get some sushi :)
Anyone know of any great sales happening this weekend?
Happy Saturday! Drink Responsibly and Wear Sunscreen!!!
