Weekend Coffee Share: Two Months Already!

If we were having coffee, I would greet you tiredly. As I was going through the day yesterday, I realised how tired I am – so tired that last night I went to bed at my usual time when it is my habit to stay up later on a Friday night. Today I am still awash with fatigue so I see myself hitting the hay early again tonight.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this year I was not feeling Halloween. I did not think creatively on a costume and just grabbed a dress I wore a few years back with no intention to add the wig and makeup. Now that my own children are older, there is no vibe at home and, with the change of admin at the school, the vibe at the office and at school is also not there. I still decorated my door and classroom so my room still had the Halloweeny feel about it.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that even though my students were tired yesterday after their late night trick-or-treating, they worked calmly in class. I was so pleased to see that parents did not send them to school with loads of candy. If they did have any in their lunch box, it was only one.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this past week I completed the first draft of my report cards and handed them in. I also worked on two modified IEPs (Individual Education Plans) which took so much time! Now that I am thinking about all that happened this week, I am not surprised that I am feeling tired! This afternoon I will definitely relax with a book. I have a couple of holds at the library which I will pick up after doing my grocery shopping later on in the day. I am in the mood for reading a relaxing romantic comedy.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that the weather has turned. Halloween was a cold and rainy day which brought in the icy winds. When I was outside yesterday, I decided I needed to bring out my winter gear: I am sure I will need my boots, hat and scarf soon to protect myself from the cold. My least favourite season is almost upon us!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that it is now time to go to my exercise class. Have a wonderful weekend – and may your week be a good one.

What would you tell me if we were having coffee?

  1. I would tell you that my feelings about Halloween were changing as well…then I visited a friend’s house and saw the hundreds and hundreds of kids who dressed up and paraded through the streets…it felt like a real neighborhood where people were friendly, protective and supportive of each other, and everyone was in a good mood…a sense of community that is sadly missing right now…so I guess I’m “pro-Halloween” again, even if it feels like bribery!

  2. Hi – Enjoyed the coffee share- and we are not that into Halloween anymore with older kids – but it was fun when they were little – and the hubs and I were just talking about how we wish we knew how bad candy was – not being a grinch now – but ugh – candy has dyes and chemicals and I guess it would be okay if it was once a year – but folks are eating chemicals confectionary crap all the time …
    Hope your reading time was refreshing ☀️😊

  3. I loved that you decorated your class room for the kids, even when you didn’t feel in a Halloween mood. This was actually the first year in a long time that I did not wear a costume. I did go trick and treating with my daughter and it was nice seeing so many happy, excited kids out. I hope you had a great weekend my friend ❤
