personal life

(ONE)  my workouts and food were pretty fantastic this week.  planning has made a big difference.  i’m motivated right now by what’s happening day to day.  i feel good.  i want to continue that.  i still haven’t lost a pound in months but i know i’m gaining muscle, eating right (most of the time), and feel good.  that’s all that matters to me right now.

(2)  i freaking love birchbox.  i’ve never ordered anything from their site…yet.  the products are pretty high end.  but i absolutely love getting the box each month and trying out things i could never afford in real life.  it’s like a little gift to myself each month.  this month’s box was especially good.  if you want to learn more about birchbox, click here.



(three)  during my pre-ap world history class this week, we were studying the middle ages.  i came up with a good writing prompt: assign a shade between black and white for how “dark” the “dark ages” were in europe during the middle ages.  i went to the store and stole some paint samples took a bunch of free samples and showed them to the kids so they could choose one as their inspiration.  i had them all fanned out in my hands when i was explaining the assignment.  i told them “there’s a lot of choices here.  pick the right color for you.  i mean, there’s probably 30 or 40 shades here.”  one of the kids said, “you think there’s maybe 50 there?”  i replied, “yeah, i think so.”  so he then asked, “so you’re holding 50 shades of gray?”  of course, we all started laughing.  i had to add a little “oh, geez…eww” in there too.

(4)  we all know i love cats.  especially big cats.  if i could have a totally tame tiger or lion, i would.  the video below is adorbs.  it reminded me of two summers ago  at the denver county fair when i got to hold a baby tiger.  (i hate this picture because i see some of the physical imperfections that i’ve been working at getting rid of, but it was still a great memory so i have to share it.)


(FIVE)  i got evaluated by my principal this week.  it’s like the most nerve-wracking thing ever.  you’re judged on one single class period and it counts for the entire year.  not that i want more than one!!!  i’m just happy to have that over with. it takes some pressure off for sure.  i feel pretty good about it…there was discussion, primary sources, technology, total participation, humor, etc.  i’ll get my results early next week.  fingers crossed!

One thought on “H54F!

  1. Stopping by from H54F! So glad I stumbled across your blog again – It’s been over a year since I got my last birchbox. I paused my subscription when I moved and never picked it up again. I might have to do that soon since everyone is talking about how good they have been lately!!!
