one. We got an unexpected “Inclement Weather Day/Snow Day” on Tuesday of this week so I only had kids to teach three days this week (we had a PLC day on Monday). I’m kind of getting used to this once-a-week-have-a-snow-day situation. I say, “Keep them coming!”
On my free day, I baked two different kinds of cookies and got caught up on The Bachelor (the important things in life, right?! 🙂 ).
There is no better feeling than seeing our school number calling and knowing that a snow day is happening. No doubt about it, snow days are 100 times better as a teacher. On Tuesday, I was supposed to teach about summarizing and paraphrasing versus plagiarism so I didn’t mind putting that off another day. 😉
two. I saw this article earlier in the week that said Manhattan, Kansas is ranked the second best place to live in America. I’m glad Manhappiness is getting the recognition it deserves. We love the fun restaurants and many things to do here. It’s the happiest place on earth! (To all my friends reading this who live far away, this better entice you to move here!) 🙂
three. At my friend, Lanaya’s recommendation, I ordered this makeup cloth earlier in the week to try instead of having to use expensive makeup wipes all the time. She swears that this really does work like magic and is gentle on skin too. I’ve only used it one night so far, but I am impressed how easily it removes my eye makeup. I usually have to scrub the heck on my eyes to get the black circles off, but this works seamlessly with just a little water!
four. Last week was PRIDE Week at our school. At WMS, PRIDE stands for “Personal Responsibility in Daily Efforts” and is our school motto for how we should act. Part of PRIDE Week included each homebase making a door designed around the theme of PRIDE and how we should show it in our school.
The “week” got extended into this week too because of the snow days and I was a little worried when our door was still blank on Wednesday (the doors were all due on Thursday). Luckily, my homebase kicked it into gear and even did some fancy “curtains” to make our door pop even more. Kids kept telling me all day that the “curtains” reminded them of the bead curtains that used to be popular. Having a little extra “swag” on my door livens it up!
five. If you need a warm breakfast idea, I’m still going strong making my Peanut Butter Banana Baked Oatmeal each week. Travis and I both are obsessed, and it makes six big servings (and reheats really well!). Do yourself a favor and make it. It’s like eating a warm, gooey cookie for breakfast!
Have a wonderful weekend! I’m so glad it’s supposed to be a little warmer than it has been lately!
