Do I really have to teach this Tuesday!?!?!

A week and a day away from Turkey Vacation!  This is the first full week in 2 weeks.  We had off for Election Day {technically it was an Inservice Day}, and we had off last Tuesday for Veterans Day.   Bottom line, give a teacher a day off a week, and we will most likely want another {Reminds me of that book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie}  I. Can’t. Wait. To. Thanksgiving. Break!  I’m so looking forward to a little time off with family.  Although I haven’t fought Ebola, lost my job, or developed a terrible illness, I confess 2014 is my least favorite year in years.  Through many ups and downs, I try to remain thankful.  Some days, it is easier than others.  Some days, it is easier said than done.  I’m going to share what/who I’m thankful for up until Thanksgiving in these areas…

1.  my family

2.  my health

3. my job

4.  material things

Let’s start today!

1.  my loving husband who admittedly loves even the weird things about me

2.  the ability to run {even at a relatively quick pace!}

3.  being able to greet the students each day with a “good morning” and actually having a few {morning people!} respond with a “good morning”

4.  this one has to be coffee, tea, or any hot beverage.  especially as I prepare to shiver on a field trip today.

A few things to share…


I made these yummy brownies when my mom and sister visited last weekend.  I did *try* to make them a little more healthy by substituting one egg for a “flax egg” {1 tbsp. flax seed + 2 tbsp. tap water) and adding cinnamon {health benefits of cinnamon – Daddy read the first.}.
