This week's Show Us Your Life (hosted by the adorable Kelly @ Kelly's Korner) is about a typical day. One of my 50 in 500 goals is to chronicle my day in photographs, so I decided that today would be the day to accomplish this goal. It was more difficult than I realized to document my day, and I forgot to photograph a lot of parts. Sorry, internet. I'll try harder.
I usually wake up between 5:30 and 6. Lately it has been closer to 6 with a lot of snoozing in between.
This is my morning hair. I can't believe I'm posting this, but it's for your entertainment.
I eat cereal, take care of Kody, get ready, grab my lunch and I'm out the door by 6:45. Ideally I get to run by Starbucks or Quik Trip for coffee, but that is a rarity.
I arrive at school around 7. I spend the time before the kids get there checking e-mails and getting things ready for the day. I usually make a To-Do List similar to this one. I have a notebook full of them, and this one happened to be the first page. Today's wasn't a neat list, it was a web. Sometimes I web, sometimes I list, and sometimes I choose not to make a To Do list because they make me feel bad about not getting anything done.
I spend my day teaching English. The kids walk in at 7:20 and classes begin at 7:45. I teach from 7:45 - 10:40, then lunch, back to class until 11:30. From 11:30-12:20 I have a team meeting. We discuss student interventions, contact parents, etc, etc, etc. From there is study hall, and finally from 1:00-1:40 I get a "personal plan" time, which is when I get to grade this stack of papers.
(Usually the stack isn't this large, but I collected a packet from them yesterday.)
Sometimes I discover interesting papers like this one.
Apparently it went through surgery before it made it to me.
I teach one more hour before the kids leave at 2:45. The earliest I can leave is 3:15, but most days I'm there until about 4 pm. Today though, I left at 3:15 because it is Friday!
Today my sister-in-law, Cash, and I walked downtown to get some stuff from the baby store and a coffee from Whistle Stop. Usually I would walk Kody or go to Jazzercise at 4:30. (I made my goal of working out 5x this week!!!)
On a typical day, I would then go home and clean, read, watch TV, shop, work on school stuff, or hang out with this girl. In general, Mondays I do house stuff, Tuesdays I hang out with friends, Wednesdays I work late, Thursdays I go to Bible Study, and the weekends change.
I try to be in bed by 10, but that doesn't always happen. Even though I'm in bed, I don't necessarily go to sleep. I usually stay up reading until at least 10:30 if not later. (Depending on the book.)
This weekend, I spent Friday night babysitting.
Made cheese dip.
And they straightened my hair.
This morning vs. Tonight
(Sorry about the flash, I was in a hurry.)
Did you catch the outfit change there. That happens a lot in my life. I also ended up with a pirate beard from Riley's stage make-up. I'll save that photo for another day.
