2. Tomorrow I go to both my PT and my chiro to see how my heel is doing! It's doing quite well thank you! I remain pleased but cautious. I am always waiting for the pain to start again. It isn't perfect now, I have little twinges but I do mean little!
3. Mood at work is lifting but we are all just making it to the weekend. Thank God for the students who can lift you up (as well as bring you down.) One thing for sure is it is never boring and you don't have too much time to be gloomy. In spite of it being a horrific week I got a lot done at work. My web page is finally active - that took forever! My students are doing an awesome writing piece. We have spent a lot of time learning about the race to be first at the South Pole. Each student is now writing a series of letters from Robert F. Scott to his wife. "He" writes as they are getting ready for the race, on the way to the Pole, at the Pole and on the way back - until just before his whole team dies! Yes, a real mood lifter! Seriously it is a fascinating piece of history. The students can really show their voice in the letters. These letters are then made into a book. The whole Antarctica thing is my favorite thing I teach all year. Now we are moving onto penguins and the kids will think they have died and gone to heaven. Of course one of the highlights is learning there is a jackass penguin - after all these are 8 + 9 year olds.
4. I was asked today how I was liking winter. When I said I was loving it I could tell that was not the expected answer. If truth be told I am beginning to be a little quiet about my love for this winter. I don't go on and on to my husband. He is working outside most of the day, comes home and plows the driveway and even when it hasn't snowed comes home and pushes back the driveway so a car can get through. Then he shovels snow off the roof, rakes snow off the roof and shovels more snow off the roof. He brings in all the wood for the wood stove to keep us very warm. Me - I walk from my car to the building I am going to or I go for a run in it which I love. I sit in a warm house and watch the snow gently falling outside. Or I sit in a warm house and watch the snow blowing everywhere falling like mad outside. Hmmm. I wonder why I like winter and he is JUST.PLAIN.SICK.OF.IT!
5. I had a student ask me today, "Just how many pairs of sneakers do you have?" I was sporting my newest pair which everyone keeps asking if they glow in the dark. Yeah, they are that bright and loud. I ordered them on line and truthfully thought the color was much softer and was shocked when they came. I had them all ready to send back when decided I needed more loudness in my life. Got to say, I'm getting lots of compliments on them. Just don't wear them on a day when you want to fade into the background.
Okay they look kind of soft and pretty here.........nope totally bright and in
your face. The green is pretty much fluorescent.
