(ONE) back to school and back to my routine this week! it’s a blessing and a curse… i kid. i love my job. it’s infuriating and annoying at times, but i still enjoy what i do. it’s even fun sometimes. i worked in a little “rolling stones” music into my economics lesson for today. if observing a bunch of high schoolers watch a 1970s mick jagger strut around the stage in his tiny pants and crop top singing “you can’t always get what you want” isn’t fun, i don’t know what is. 🙂
(2) i’ve been following @mommasgonecity on instagram for a couple of months. nearly every day she posts a picture of her son and their newly adopted puppy napping. it is the cutest thing ever. it brightens my day every time i see them together. it’s so fun to watch them both grow up side by side. search for #theoandbeau for all the pics. here’s an example:
(three) i got back on track with my food and exercise (mainly due to my routine – see number 1). i even fit in a “workout” at fun jump on sunday afternoon. so fun…so exhausting. i was sore until wednesday morning for that one. but it was worth it. all my workouts this week were about 45 minutes and kicked ass. i swore my way through them all, but i am glad i pushed it. i needed it.
(4) it’s that time again! when all we talk about at school is our standardized testing. at least we can have a sense of humor about it sometimes…
(FIVE) i spent some time with my cousin this past week. that’s always good for me. and for her too, i think. what i like about it is that there’s never any pressure to say or do anything. it’s always just real and funny and comfortable.
