If we were having coffee, I would tell you that yesterday late afternoon I was glad to open the door to my home. It had been raining for two days non-stop. I love the rain, but what I don’t love is indoor recess. The kids get antsy as they do not have an opportunity to run around outside. Recess is great – the children have a break from the confines of the room, and teachers have a break from the noise of many kids. Yesterday the children stayed in the room with me and it was a long stretch to lunchtime. I am hoping that Monday will be a clear day so that we all can have the break to clear our minds. Things look promising as today the skies are blue.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that it has been a hectic week. I am currently working on the next PD (professional development) session that I am presenting to the teachers at our school. I have started putting down the ideas I have and now need to complete the slideshow presentation and work on the cards I intend to give to those attending the session.
In addition, we had our staff meeting this week. It began a little differently this month in that we chipped in and the social committee organised lunch for us (sandwiches, salad, and a little cake). I enjoyed not having to prepare lunch for myself for one day – and I enjoyed eating lunch together with the other teachers. This month the staff meeting was not too long as we had recently met on the PA day.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I woke up feeling exhausted this morning and that I am a little slow with my chores today. What a pity we don’t have a 3 day weekend this week – I really enjoy the extra day when we do have one. I am certain to take a nap this afternoon so that I can feel better rested tomorrow and ready to take on the next week.
If we were having coffee, I would wish you a good week. Our temperatures are going down and it looks like we will have to start wearing jackets and boots. My daughter will be glad as she gets to wear her new sweater 🙂 .
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
