One of the many differences from teaching middle school to high school was the lack of gifts I received during the holidays. I used get pretty loaded up with a lot of baked goods, candies, snacks and gift cards the week before winter vacation when I worked at Spring Harbor. Now that I'm a high school art teacher, it's a pretty rare event to get a gift but it happens from special students. Today one of my freshman brought me orchids and it was so exciting. My #100happydays photo for today is a flowers on my crowded desk at work vs at home in low light, which is a perfect reflection of my life. Work is so crazy busy with all that needs to happen between yearbook, the newspaper, grading and the art sale versus my life at home which is just walk Balt and figure out what I want to make myself for dinner.
Today I didn't even walk Balt because I took him to daycare so I could stay after and finish up pages for the yearbook. I came home this evening and found I had ran out of dog food which was, of course not going to work out well for me in the morning. So I made my way to Costco after making myself a stir fry for dinner. I got some fruit and vegies too, looked at the glasses (I need a new pair) and tried to find the gluten free granola (I know they have it, I just can't find it). I came home and put stuff away, made my lunch and got ready for bed. I'm turning in early. P90 early in the morning gets me tired early in the evening.
