NONE! Can you believe it? I don’t think this has ever been the case for me.
What a long, mentally exhausting week!! So many of my coworkers shared my exhaustion with the events of the week. One even said “Its too early in the year to feel this exhausted. This is like an April exhausting feeling and its only the first week of October.” It was the perfect way to describe it! Drama-llama at every turn, a million things to do, no one happy with anything…just thinking about it is making me clench my teeth again! I had a headache every day. Seriously, this was one of those weeks when I question my desire to be a special education teacher. Or any kind of teacher. Its exhausting.
It also doesn’t feel much like October (oddly, more like April!). Its been in the mid 80’s all week. I am ready for fall. Heck, really I am ready for winter. But I would take fall if it would arrive to SW Ohio. But alas, it seems that fall will elude me this week as well. Its suppose to be 80 again all week. If work is going to be this stressful, it would be good if mother nature would throw me a bone.
I got a new fitness tracker. Its a ring. I have an issue with watches/bracelets. I can’t stand anything tight on my wrist. So, a fitbit or an apple watch was not gonna work because I can’t stand that feeling. I tried both. So, when I saw the ring idea, I thought it was cool. So far, I am really enjoying it. It is a sleep tracker as well and water proof so you wear it all the time (shower, sleeping, etc). It only needs to be charged every couple of days and it will fully charge in like an hour! It doesn’t annoy me like something on my wrist does. I often kind of forget about it entirely. The app is nice as well. It gives me my sleep time, my resting heart rate, my steps, and my ‘active minutes’. I think this will be the tracker for me! (its called a Motiv ring if you are interested). And it definitely confirmed how stressed I was because I slept for 14 hours yesterday!!!
My happy for the week, as usual, was my dogs! Look at how adorable they are!! Cal rolled in
animal poo (again) and Yoda has licked a spot on his leg until it bled. I just have to keep reminding myself they are adorable and I love them. Brats….
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
