101st and an Epiphany

So, I realized a missed a mile-stone – my 100th blog post was yesterday!  I got more excited about that than I should.  I’m making an effort to be more consistent in the upcoming months, so we’ll so how long it takes me to get to 200!

I have no photos from today, due to oversleeping until a minute before being late, which is a good thing.  My day was an embarrassment of a carb-fest.  In total, between 7-5, I managed to eat a bagel, a donut, 4 garlic knots, and 2 cookies.  Holy calorie!

My day was pretty terrible.  I feel so sick I actually went home instead of doing my after-school duties.  I had a pretty high fever and that point and I was kind of in a daze.  My daze could be however, from the 2 massive fights we had today.  The results of which being a teacher getting slapped in the face and a hallway window being smashed to smithereens.

I went to Starbucks after school to catch up on grading (over a fruit and cheese plate and a nonfat latte) and while I was moaning I had a bit of an epiphany moment.  I was thinking about buying some books to give to my students, and some supplies for one girl, and I suddenly felt very calm.  I had a random burst of energy, and I definitely reminded myself that having a bad attitude will not help things at all.

I’m heading out to buy my student gifts in a little bit and I’m planning on staying up pretty late doing some work to get ahead.  I probably won’t be eating again, I’m still full, but I’ll post some pictures of what I buy.  Let me know – Have you ever had an “epiphany moment” about something in YOUR life?

*****Updated to add – Look at my spread!

I got 15 books for less than $130!  I know my kids won’t be as excited as I am, but no one ever does nice things for them, and hopefully, down the line at some point, they’ll remember it and feel happy.

    Hooray for your 101st post!! 😀

    So sorry about your day – believe me, this has been the week from hell for me too (sooo many midterms and assignments), so I can sympathize.

    I have epiphany moments quite often, when I have time to sit back and reflect.
