Currently February


Where has the time gone?

Even as I type that last question, I'm wondering why it seems like the days are crawling by, yet the weeks and months somehow fly by?

Time is a weird thing, my friend.

Teaching has me busy, as usual.

It seems like as of late, I have been overly stressed.

Teaching is a stressful job.

But when you combine it with a perfectionist who also has a fear of failure, I've got a line of new wrinkles and a patch of gray hairs.

When you are doing your best, what you are doing is enough.

I am doing my best.

Repeat daily every hour.

Hubs and I have quite a tradition on Monday nights.  He plays video games (shhh....he wouldn't want me to tell you that) and listens to a soccer podcast to catch up on his Swansea City, while I sit on the couch and try not to make a decision in preparation for the next school day.

I'm an aunt!
My sister had her baby on Friday.  
8 pounder!  
Blake Avery is her name and she is SO precious!

I would show you a picture of her, but my brother in law is a little paranoid about photos of his baby on the internet.  We have currently been forbidden to share any photos of her on facebook or instagram.  Whomp whomp.

It's such a shame.  She is beautiful.  

School has been on my mind a lot recently.  
I'm not the teacher I want to be.  
I'm not sure how to change, but I think a start would be to reflect on the teacher I AM right now.



Winter?  The Earth called.  It wants the sun back.  Pleaseandthankyou.

Treat yo' self.  

Any Parks and Recs Fans out there know what I'm sayin?

My fib is that I am the oldest child.  I am the baby of the family and it shows in most situations :)

Okay, if you are like me, and need a little inspiration to get you through this (Valentine's) week, you have to read this blog post!  

You matter, just the way you are.
Happy teaching!
