This was just not my week to get up early! Thankfully it was Friday (we start school at 8:40 instead of 8) so I could be in bed at 7:10 and not be late. Plus, eating on the train meant I dug out this Kashi bar.
Um, it has popcorn in it?!?!?! Has there ever been anything made more for me?
I packed this for lunch,
but I ended up eating it all over the place. My beloved popcorn bar didn’t quite fill me up (probably because I didn’t eat dinner yesterday) so I snacked on my Fuji apple during 1st period with my boys class.
I lined them up outside the room this morning and was basically like “cut the crap” and I actually had control/kids doing meaningful work for the first half the block, so that was nice. I’m doing everything I can to make sure my students don’t go crazy this half of the year. It’s frustrating, because I’m a good teacher forget that, I’m a great teacher, but the students at my school are so e.d. that unless you are a wonderful disciplinarian it doesn’t matter.
I stayed late after school to finish setting my room back up, it finally feels like “home” again. 🙂 A is the sweetest man on Earth so he actually trekked all the way out to East New York to pick me up! On the way home I finally ate the other half of my lunch – cucumber slices and a Nonfat Think ‘n Creamy Yoplait.
When we got back to the Slope we made a quick grocery run so we wouldn’t have to leave the house again until tomorrow. We are doing another theme night tonight; Cuban Night! We mostly grabbed things for that at the store, we are trying not to spend a ton of money right now. Stupidly, we thought it’d be a good idea to pay A’s tuition (he is getting his masters in education through tfa) in a lump sum and now we are pretty broke. It will be hella nice to get reimbursed in a lump sum this summer though 🙂 Plus his sister is coming to visit next weekend and we will be going out on the town so it’s a good idea to save up anyways.
I snacked on a half serving of Kashi cheddar crackers and a Laughing Cow Lite while I caught up with some things online,
and now I’m sipping this cup of Candy Cane Lane while I play around.
We should be making dinner soon so I’ll be back with an exciting Cuban post later this evening!
I am currently listening to an old Sarah McLachlan cd, and it’s making me quite happy – do you like music a la Lillith Fair?
