OK. After yesterday, you know the pet peeves. So what am I loving/enjoying?
*Not directing this fall. I miss the kids but not the extra work in an already jam-packed schedule.
*Grammar games in English. They require a bit (that might be an understatement) of planning on my part, but sophomores will do anything if I can turn it into a competition.
*Pumpkin lattes and/or Pumpkin Spice creamer.
*"They're Real!" mascara by Benefits Cosmetics
*Walking home from school every afternoon.
*The 30 minutes when I feel caught up with grading. (It happens about twice a school year!)
*Interactive Notebooks for my students. That might be the single best thing that I have done this year. (All those little daily assignments are glued into their notebooks instead of filling my in basket.)
*A new haircut-- at an old salon-- by a new stylist, who introduced me to a new product: "Quick Tease." No more teasing my hair for volume. This spray takes the place of that.
*Having nails again. The fake kind. I had chewed them down to nubs, so I gave up the fight. You can't really bite acrylic nails.
*Watching L work so hard on her masters in administration. Teaching, being a wife and mom, and taking six hours has been challenging.
*K as an administrator. There are many good things going on at Tiny Town High.
*Fresh pears or apples and peanut butter
*Zumba class and Walk/Runs in the morning. Now if I could just find a Yoga class.
Actually, I don't have too many complaints: my favorite season of the year, an enjoyable sophomore class, and enough work to keep me busy. Life is pretty darn good.
