A busy day!

I was dressed and ready to go for a run when I took Halo out for a potty break. I brought him back in and went to take the bag off his foot, it keeps the splint dry, and the entire cast came off! In the car and off to the vet's we went. I ... Read more

I have a new toy...it's an elliptical! A friend of mine had it and no longer wanted it. So she gave it to me for the same price that she got it for...FREE! However, I did give her some margaritas and organic dog treats for her Griffon. It... Read more
Not so smart.

Today it is HOT and humid. It was nice at recess with a light breeze to make it easy to do playground duty. After school I dressed and went out for a run. Not so smart! ... Read more
Pup is healing nicely.

We are half way through the healing process of Halo's broken leg. Last night he decided to chew on his splint so today the vet put him in a hard plastic cone. The x-rays show that the bones are knitting and that he should have full recovery. ... Read more
Doing well.

It's been a great week, so far. I changed my nutrition tracker so that they aren't "connected" to my fitness. This way I stay in the same calorie range. It's too easy for me to see higher calories and then eat them. I know that I must stay i... Read more
I've listened, I've learned and I'm back!

It's been a great beginning of the school year. Yesterday a teacher brought in chips and dips, cupcakes and a Texas sheet cake for her birthday. I didn't do well with the food! It snowballed into a bad eating day. I even had a greasy fast ... Read more
So far so GREAT!

All the students on my class list showed up to school. One mom was giving me some dirty looks because she didn't know her child was in a new class. Another one of those, "not my issue" moments. After talking with her a few minutes, I could tel... Read more
First frustration of the school year!!

I received a call from my supervisor this morning. She told me that a parent of one of my new students, that I had met last night, decided that she didn't want her child in a portable classroom. REALLY? When we talked last night, it sounded l... Read more

I was able to meet two of my new students tonight. I only had a 60% turnout for Meet the Teacher Night. As bad as that may sound, it's better than average. I am pretty excited to try new things this year and to have a small class. I was ... Read more
A "lazy" day
Sunday, August 10, 2014      9 comments

It was a rather "lazy" day. I slept in until around 7:30ish. I ran errands for pet supplies, things to keep Halo busy and to get thing for my daughter heading back to college tomorrow. We went to "coffee shop church" and then had vegetarian ... Read more
A day of feeling humbled.
Saturday, August 09, 2014      10 comments

I've had several moments of feeling humble today. The first goes along with an update on the pup. Halo went to the vet today because the wrap on his splint had moved. My friend is a tech there and took care of us. We ended up changing the spl... Read more
Getting back in the groove.

I started back to work. Meetings, getting my room together, schedules, curriculum for very individual students, and trying to get ready for "opening day." I'll admit my eating hasn't been the best the past two days. Staff breakfast, lunches... Read more
Thumbs up!

Since yesterday was such a frustrating day, I went for a run last night. My oldest joined me as it was frustrating for her, too. (She's the one taking out the student loan.) At one point two cars full of teenage boys went by hooting and hol... Read more
A day of frustration.
Monday, August 04, 2014      8 comments

Today was one of those frustrating days. The pup's leg is healing, but the bones have moved a little. The vet isn't overly concerned, but I was hoping for a little better x-ray. He said he's just being picky, but I like picky. We go back in ... Read more

Our puppy is doing as well as can be expected. It will be a long six weeks, but we'll manage! Today I noticed that I had "no" ankles. My legs are really swollen. I'm not sure why, but I suspect it's yesterday's eating. We went out for lu... Read more
