There is no tired like the tired of a teacher during the first week back to school! My feet hurt because I am not used to standing all day. My throat hurts because I’m not used to talking all day. My head hurts because I am teaching high schoolers (teenagers are a pain the neck sometimes!). Plus, its HOT and we don’t have AC so I’m sweaty which makes me irritable! Bottom line, this week is always rough. But, so far, we are off to a good start and I am hopeful this will be a successful year!
A happy birthday to Mr. Book Disciple who is 40 today! We had his birthday party last night and since we are old, it ended at 9 🙂 My husband is great and I am lucky to have him.
My allergies are going nuts right now. I’m not sure what exactly I am reacting to, but its awful! Hopefully it passes quickly.
Going back to work and having to wear real clothes (not leggings and pajamas) has made me realize I need some new clothes! I was grabbing stuff to wear and finding it had a tiny hole in the bottom or a discoloration for repeated washings over the years, and other typical flaws for old clothes. But I hate clothes shopping. I hate it SO MUCH! Anyone else have this problem?
I did my first escape room this week! As a team building exercise for all the teachers, we were put into groups and had to try to escape the room. My team did NOT escape the room. We were close-we had figured everything out except the final code to disarm the bomb. We had all the letters and numbers, but couldn’t figure out the order. Overall, it was more fun than I expected. Our tasks were largely based on color coding things and 2 people on our team were color blind so that became the joke all week! Of all the teams (I think we had a total of 7 teams), only 2 made it out of their rooms. Have you done an escape room? What did you think?
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!
