Hey look at me, actually posting a Five Thing Friday…on Friday.
1) Every Bill Hader impression!
I love Bill Hader and am super sad that he’s leaving SNL. Who will play Keith Morrison with all the right creepiness!?
2) We had a meet and greet at out apartment last night. It was a good time that included free wine and Italian food. All was going well until someone broke an entire bottle of red wine on the brand new tile floor…whoops. THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS!!
3) We are still taking state tests. Ok, not really we, just one specific grade level. On one day this week a child took about 2 hrs and 40 minutes to solve 27 math problems. Two hours! It’s ridiculous that she was that stressed out about the test, that it took her that long. I mean really.
4) This isn’t really a thing for this Friday, it happened about a week ago, howevah… I’m going to have a sister in law! Woohoo! Welcome to the craziness Sarah!
5) Three day weekend! That is all. Especially when you have to deal with a child all week who continues to tell you they are going to Pennsylvania on Friday and she needs to pack up now…on Monday…
It’s only Wednesday??
Time seems to have slowed down. I feel as though we should be in the last week of school,not the Wednesday before Memorial Day.
Anyway. Like I mentioned on Monday, my motivation has been lacking. So I tried switching up my workout on Tuesday. I’ll usually go to the gym and run/walk and do a couple of weights. This time I did a circuit workout that I found on military.com. Gotta be legit, right?
So there it is. I pretty much followed it except for the lack of leg curls (I just ran/jogged again). I also added another three minutes of running to the end of the workout. I liked it and I can feel it today. Not a bad way and I definitely do it again.
I also found this great picture over at Hungry Healthy Happy:
If that’s not motivation…I don’t know what is!
Yes, that’s right people. Motivation…on a Monday… Couldn’t we all use a little?
There are only three Monday’s left in the school year, 3!
Blood, Sweat, and Cheers! is starting a new series about Motivation Monday (hence the idea). I love the picture they used today.
Truer words have never been spoken…right!?
My motivation has been a little lacking as of late. Even though there is a gym two floors below me, I still find myself trying to think of excuses not to go. Dumb. It doesn’t help that my Runkeeper app doesn’t get good reception in the gym and marks my pace as 30 minutes per mile. Ummm no.
I’d be dawdling to use a new word study word.
This weekend was filled with going to a beer festival, good food, and art projects…
Long story short, don’t leave me with a sterno pot and chopsticks…
It’s Friday! The first week of state tests are done. There are still two more weeks left to go.
I’ve seen this on some other blogs and thought I’d jump on the bandwagon too.
So here it is, whether you like it or not, my day in photos!
Wake up! 6:00 AM
Drive to work.
School! I got to take all the butcher paper off the alphabet, so it was an exciting day indeed.
No talking! One of the other teachers had this pig in her classroom. It’s a pig (obviously)that oinks songs. It hasn’t oinked a song all year. When did it decide to? Oh on the one day where if anything out of the ordinary happens it’s on your head as a teacher…
Math inventory. It’s amazing that there was an abacus in my closet and I didn’t even know it. Does anyone know how to use an abacus!?
I love my student’s spelling skills. That would be dog, skank, swkank, and school. Of course the word they all wanted to repeat was skank…
Gliding while eating… This is at Rudee’s in Virginia Beach. I had not known about these gliders. It was pretty spectacular.
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!
Tonight is the finale of The Office…I am very saddened by this…
So I thought, my not share some of my favorite Office moments…err people…something…
False, Black Bear
I am really sad that The Office is ending. It’s like the end of Friends. I don’t like it. Nope not one bit. Why can’t the show just stay on forever?
I will be watching the finale in real-time, crazy I know! All I gotta say…is that Michael Scott better make a dame appearance!
I tried a new frozen lunch today. I was a little wary since it was a frozen falafel. Nine times outta ten a frozen falafel is a fail. Ooo, I love alliteration.
Howevah, after eating TaDah, my mind has been changed. It was flavorful and delicious.
Oh and they provide good advice and warnings:
How true, how true.
I had a pretty awesome weekend, if I do say so myself. We traveled down to Raleigh to celebrate my brother’s girlfriend’s Masters degree. Woohoo, Sarah!
It started off with some baseball:
The Durham Bulls have a pretty cool ballpark. It was a great night and there were fireworks soooo…
My brother’s gf graduated the next day
Can you find her?
It was a great weekend visiting with family and meeting new family members.
This week is a testing week which = not a lot of fun. Our tests are all online which means I get to walk around a watch them click through answers. Not really, my group has been good about actually trying to answer the questions.
Good job kiddos!
Happy Mother’s Day!
I was lucky enough to spend the weekend with my mama and it was wonderful
Kid President knows moms are important:
My mom is the best. Of course I’m a little biased, but it’s true. I mean who else would walk 10 half marathons with you?
She put up with my brother and I and all our crazy shenanigans.
She helped instill my love of UofM
My love of wine
And of course that’s so Raven
Happy Mother’s Day to my and all the other wonderful women in my life who helped me become who I am today!
I’m up on all the latest lingo…WTF, Why the face? Oh Phil…
No, but seriously! I was noticing the other day The Pig that people had pretty serious faces during the race…like the whole time. And then again yesterday I was at an event that celebrates, celebrates! reading and achievement. Then it hit me! These people aren’t mad, they just have:
Today I’m off on a field trip to the Children’s Museum, pray for me!
