Fred Durst lyrics aside, I’ve been on a roll this week with the productivity! I’m pretty proud of today if I do say so myself.
I had no train breakfast (or lunch) today because A and I were going back to the doctors to get the blood tests we missed from last week. It was interesting day of school – I did not teach a single class. Exit projects for science and social studies are due tomorrow so every single period of 8th grade for the last 2 days has been devoted to finishing them. It’s not that I mind helping with the projects, but isn’t the school sending the wrong message by instituting a mad rush?
I stayed after school to re-average grades for students who handed in make-up work today and then I met A at the doctor’s office. Quick and painless. I’m not afraid of needles, but I should be – I have really small veins and the last 3 times I got blood taken it involved 8+ sticks and a popped vein! A went before me and was nice enough to save me his post-test leftovers.
He brought me about 1/4 of a Chipotle chicken burrito bowl.
I ate it on the walk home.
I didn’t even have time to sit when we got home because I had to make a quick turn around to make it to the gym by 6:15. I did the best I could to approximate a meal by drinking a chocolate EAS on the walk.
60minutes of Virgin Yoga is just what I needed – I’m still sore from the class on Tuesday! My balance is pitiful, even the first-times look more graceful than I do as I flop around like fish.
When I got home I hunkered down to work and finished my plans/materials for tomorrow, and 90% of next week, and 50% of the week after that! The reason I had to do tomorrow is because I was informed that I will be teaching Social Studies for the next two days due to the upcoming state exam.
Dinner was quick and simple but delicious.
Yam Soba noodles + frozen organic asparagus = tasty meal for 2 x 2nights.
I topped my portion with a drizzle of evoo, a sprinkle of salt, and 1T toasted pine nuts.
Somehow after dinner I managed to convince A that a trip to the grocery store at 11pm as a good idea- so we went! We got our groceries for next week.
Groceriers, grading, doctors appointment, plans, and the gym? Sounds like a good day to me.
Are you afraid of needles? I am not. Which is probably how I ended up with 6piercings and a tattoo.
