SLICE OF LIFE: Day 7/31--Things aren't always what you plan!


SLICE OF LIFE: Day 7/31

Rainy, cloudy, with a chance of storms. That is what I would say if I were the weather forecaster. It is warm and that makes it almost worth the cloudy, rainy day. A perfect day for cleaning. That is what I did all morning: clean the back bedroom, dust everything and vacuum the floors. Then we took some time off to go out for lunch.

Driving to our destination, I began to feel funny. Maybe I was just hungry. Maybe it was because I had exercised while hungry and exercised HARD. Maybe I was getting the bug everyone around me has been experiencing. I was starved so the grilled chicken salad tasted great and I scarfed it down. Still didn't feel the best. We made a couple more stops and then got home.

My next project was to tackle all the lessons I had to prepare for next week's classes. I have four lessons and two collaborations on Monday. Not an easy schedule. I have them all listed out. I need to prepare a whole unit of study for persuasive writing for some 4th and 5th grades. I need to review Acuity data for 4th grade. I need to work on an author study and some how-to books. All just for Monday! My stomach tightens up just thinking about it.

I think I will begin with the Author Study and How-to books...then take a nap. Everything's better after a nap! My Slice of Life is that sometimes things don't work out the way you had planned them to work out!

Let's hear it for naps!

What's that old saying? When you have a lot to do, it's best to get the nap out of the way first.

Hope you feel better and that you accomplish all you plan--

Everyone got to see Debbie Miller this week! (Well, I didn't) I went to a reading conference a few weeks ago and she was there, but I decided to go listen to Ellin Oliver Keene instead. It was a good choice.

Hooray for naps! You have a lot going on. Your Monday must be a 15 hour school day!
