Such an Exciting Life

My life pretty much runs in the following fashion now that both kids are away at college:

Wake up at 0’dark 30

Try to inspire sixty+ students to stretch themselves academically and socially

After ten hours of work, depart for home and spend another four hours working on lesson plans that will inspire aforementioned students

Once per week, run to Walmart to buy goodies for the football players I adopted as a way to inspire them to stretch themselves academically and socially

Spend fifteen minutes smelling hand soap because I have no children to run home to

Eat dinner…out somewhere because I’m vegan, the Mr. is a carnivore, and I don’t cook

Try to motivate myself, with whatever’s left in me, to complete assignments for a stupid online class that I don’t think I should have to take because I ALREADY MASTERED THE CONCEPT OF HOW TO WRITE A LESSON PLAN while I was writing lesson plans to motivate sixty+ students to stretch themselves academically and socially

Clean up dog poop twice because an older dog can’t hold her poop as long anymore and we’re in the throes of getting our yard fixed and can’t let the dogs out in the back to poop on their own

Read a few chapters of a book that is AMAZING (book review to follow soon), trying to hurry because I actually motivated a couple of students to stretch themselves academically and socially during a book talk I gave about said book which they now want to read

Play on the iPad that I bought but don’t get to use very often because I’m too busy doing all of the above tasks and have no time except at 12:30am when I should be resting up because I need to get up early so that I can inspire sixty+ students to stretch themselves academically and socially

Turn out the light around 1:30am and pray I will not sleep through the alarm so I don’t miss another opportunity to…

Well, you get my drift.

Try not to be a hater of my tremendously exciting life.

  1. My daughter is teaching 5th grade this semester, completing her certification, and in grad school so her schedule is brutal. I just told her (again) this morning to wash her hands a hundred times a day and go get a flu shot soon. Its an intense pace to keep up so take care of yourself!
