Squirrels have mad ninja skills

17 Jul

Betcha didn’t know that did ya?!  Ooooh yes.

For the next two weeks I’m working.  Crazy right?  Along with some other  fine teachers, I am grading tests.  Yes, for two weeks.  Hey!  It pays well!

Part of the test is to decide between two school mascots.  Either an owl or a squirrel.  I’ve learned a lot. 

I’ve learned that:

Squirrels have mad ninja skills

Owls are part of the eagle family (turns out this is true)

If the mythical school took the squirrel as their mascot the kids would be like infant squirrels but without all the crying, spanking, and nurturing.

Kids get really involved in fictional characters lives.  One student said a letter, “just ripped my heart right out!”

Owls have really big eyes so that way they will be able to see the board (a reason to choose the owl mascot)

By having a specific mascot a student will be able to add fractions


Owls are creepy because they can turn their heads all the way around.

See good facts that you needed to know!

I have really been trying to keep fit this summer.  It would be really easy just to not do anything in the summer.  My legs have been really tired lately so I didn’t take a walk.  Instead I did one of PBfingers at home workouts (the pink one).

It’s very unassuming, but I tell ya, those 30 sec jump ropes kill me!  Seriously.

After the circuit workout, I did some more yoga.  It amazed me how much better I felt after I did it the other day.  So why not again?

Bond does not like it when I workout at home.  He thinks we’re playing some crazy game.  Then when I don’t play with him he gets sulky and confused.

Don’t you wish you had an in home gym as nice as mine??

Also helping me not get fat over the summer is the awesome group I have on Myfitnesspal.  You really do feel accountable when four other people can see what you ate and if you worked out…

How ’bout you?  Are you trying to stay healthy this summer?  Or are you doing your best Jabba the Hutt impression?

Oh and just in case you were wondering…Pandora’s “exercise” stations sucks!  It kept bringing up Journey and other slow songs.  I had to switch it over to my Foo Fighters station.  You can never go wrong with the Foo’s.
