A Little Bit of This and That

Hudson was back to school after one day home.  A good night's sleep did him wonders.  I, however, have been fighting cold symptoms for six weeks.  I finally took myself to the doctor this week and got antibiotics and steroids to clear up the severe congestion.  I'm finally feeling a little more like myself.

We did an art project with our Jr. Kinder buddies and then all walked back to our classroom for some partner reading.  My class was wall to wall kids that afternoon!

I love my Apple watch.  I was impressed with myself on the 5th because that green ring means I got in at least 30 minutes of activity and the blue ring means that I moved each hour.

Laura and I went to Boot Camp and then we headed to a church meeting.  The Pastoral Council is starting six different areas of ministry that are designed to revitalize the church.  We are interested in the Religious Education ministry.

I've been using this app to keep track of my water intake.  

I put Christmas away last weekend.  It sucked.  I hate taking down all the pretty Christmas ornaments, lights, and sparkles.  Eric took all the boxes out to the shed before that massive rainstorms hit our area all week.  I hated doing it, but I'm glad it is done.

This second week back to school was rougher for me than the first week back.  It could be because it was raining ALL WEEK LONG!  We aren't used to this much water falling from they sky.  It made me want to get home, change into pajamas, and burrow into my blanket.  And that's pretty much what I did all week.  I didn't work out, I crashed under my blanket, I read books, and I ate a bunch of comfort food.

I've been keeping up with lesson plans, grading, and responsibilities really well over the past two months.  For some reason, I didn't keep us as well this week.  That is also quite frustrating.  It will just take a few hours of concentrated effort to get back on track, so I'm trying not to beat myself up too much.  I just hate falling behind.

We have a basketball tournament this weekend.  That will be fun, but it takes us an hour out of town on both Saturday and Sunday.  Evan is fighting a cold, so hopefully he'll make it through the tournament without too much struggle.  

Besides wanting to do nothing but read and be in my pajamas, things are good!  We get a few days break from rain and then are scheduled for three more days of rain next week.  It might sound goofy, but the rain wears me out!
