I wanted to do so today, sat down at my computer and went blank. I couldn't think of a darn thing to write about.
About 30 minutes later I thought I could use this book to help me. Sure enough, it did!
Today was tough because .
Today in general wasn't too tough, but this morning was a different story. All during Christmas break I stayed up late. I slept in. I took naps. Then comes the first day back, and it is even a Monday!
I had big plans for Monday morning. I set my alarm, two actually, and was going to get up, do a mile or two on the treadmill, my quiet times, get in early to make sure everything was in order before the students showed up.
Ask me if it happened.
I slept through both alarms! Great way to start out the new semester. The only thing that happened that I planned for was that I got up! Thankfully I woke up on my own with plenty of time that I wasn't going to be late. Still I was disappointed in my botched plans.
Then today rolls around. Sunday night I was texting with my sister, who also teaches, and we were discussing how hard it is going to be to go back to school. I told her that Tuesday would be worse since it will be the second day back. She agreed and we headed to bed early.
Tuesday's plans looked a lot like Monday's plans. Ask me if I was successful.
My alarm went off, I heard it this time, but I changed it to an hour and a half later and went back to sleep! It was a lot harder to get up this morning than it was to get up yesterday! I can't imagine how Friday is going to look! I will be happy if I show up to school fully dressed and my hair done!
I can't really complain too much about my day. Even though I didn't get done what I wanted to get done and went for sleep instead, I didn't battle being tired at all through out the day. So I guess I needed those few extra minutes.
Maybe tomorrow I will be successful on my morning plans!
