I'm finally linking up with Andrea for one of her Show and Tell Tuesday posts! Today we're all sharing a Day in the Life, and these are my very favorite posts to read! I love learning about the daily lives of others--you never know what you'll find you have in common with another blogger!
I'm sharing my Day in the Life from yesterday :)
My alarm goes off at 5 AM during the week day and you can see I stayed in bed a little bit longer. I got into the habit during grad school that if I wanted to read and comment on any blogs, I had to do it first thing in the morning because afternoons and evenings were devoted to school work, Dustin, or the million other things I'm involved with. I'm sure I'll stick with getting up that early after grad school because I love having that time to myself in the morning.
Drinking Spark and reading blogs! (And charging my Fitbit)
We finished up watching The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe in my English classes today. This was the first year that I showed a movie during testing week because I really spent so much time reviewing for our state standardized testing--as in, my students wrote 5 different essays preparing for the writing section on the test. They loved watching this movie, and we completed a worksheet during and spent lots of time talking about all of the biblical allusions in the movie (book).
Then I got home and ran. It feels good to know that I'm working my way back into shape.
We (I) enjoyed cooling off on the front porch before supper.
Supper was a crockpot meal--SO good! Chicken, corn, salsa, adobo chilis, brown rice....amazing.
I took a shower and then remembered I had to wash towels. White towels are perfect except when you live with a man and can't keep them white :(
While the towels were washing, I decided to relax a bit and watch last week's episode of Real Housewives of Dallas. Thoughts so far: Leeanne is mean. I'll have to catch up on last night's episode later.
This is a day in the life, right? Here's what I look like post-shower with still damp hair--it got bigger after it dried completely. #thankgoodnessforstraighteners
Then someone wanted me to sit with him while he wrote out a few checks.
(Also, does anyone else still use check registers? Or are we just old souls in young bodies?)
I started reading a new book, did my quiet time, and ended up going to bed around 10 PM.
