Three Things Thursday- Be Warned - Some Complaining
1. I didn't have a very inspired week of running. Two days in the gym - one with a terrible tempo run. Today I got outside but felt sluggish. Looking forward to stronger runs this weekend. I pretty much always take Fridays off. So let's hope that rejuvenates me. Maybe I'll try to get to Burlington and run on the bike path.
2. It has been very stressful at work. There is way too much to do, with way too little time to do it. I may go in on Saturday to catch up some but home is busy too. Tomorrow is an in service day with no kiddos but it is all planned with no time on our own to do any catching up. There is lots to fit in the days to come for assessment and other unusual activities so it is hard to fit real teaching in. I feel like I'm juggling too many balls. I am also trying to finish up some assignments for a computer course I took. I am making a VoiceThread with my students. Has anyone used it? It is a great program and fun to use but time consuming. I would say the kids have been very motivated by it.
3. Our kitty is still safe and avoiding the fox. We have been doing many things to keep our cats alive and out of the predator's jaws for the last year. A lot of effort goes into it particularly from my husband. He has a route he walks on our land each morning to show his presence, scare them all away. He had not done it the morning the fox made his charge after our cat.
