Week In The Life - Wednesday Words & Photos


This Wednesday was a very typical Wednesday.

It started with the obligatory wake-up shower, coupled with some N.W.A blaring on the little Bluetooth speaker I keep in the bathroom.

I had to get the obligatory selfie with the camera in the mirror shot:

We had a teacher's meeting this morning before school to go over all the end of the year procedures. There is so much I have to learn in the next couple of weeks!

I spent my prep periods trying to figure out how I'm going to cram 2 months worth of material into 2 weeks and make it interesting to Seniors who are graduating in 2 weeks. Yeah, right!

I did have some pretzels and Diet Dew to help me through it all...

After school, Mom and I did our routine meal/snack at Perkins. I had eggs (scrambled), hash browns (lightly done, no crispies), and sourdough toast. Mom had a bowl of chicken noodle soup and a turkey sandwich (whole wheat bread, not toasted, not kept under the warming lights which toasts the bread, no bistro sauce, and a side of mayonnaise).

Mom was not amused by this self-timer taken shot of us trying to look natural and nonchalant.

Zack was at our house when I got home, doing his weekly laundry chores.

He started throwing towels at my to get me to stop taking his picture. Oh silly lad - you should know better by now....

Rob got home from working out at the Y and proceeded to clean up the debris left over from the plaster guy repairing the cracks in the walls in Alyssa's room. She's going to be home tonight so she and I can go to the Carrie Underwood concert together tomorrow.

Dinner was a quickie tonight - salmon burgers with fruit and chips.

Zack commandeered the TV watching the special features on the "Deadpool" Blue-Ray that Rob bought yesterday. He's still frustrated with me pointing the camera in his face.

Rob spent the evening in the bedroom watching the Colorado Rapids beat Sporting Kansas City. He loves watching soccer!

I spent the evening watching Max Scherzer (my baseball Cutie Patootie) tie an MLB record for the most strike-outs in a baseball game - 20! He's so awesome!!!!! (imagine my eyes fluttering here).

And now I'm up waiting for my daughter to get home. She decided to leave Bozeman at 9:30 pm and drive the 150 miles to Billings in the dark. Yeah - nothing to worry about... UGH!!!!

Oh, I did get one of those feet pics today:

Week In The Life 2016 - Tuesday Words & Pictures

Day 2 is in the books! I didn't take nearly as many photos today as I did yesterday, but I did get enough to tell the story of today.

Today started with my daily medications. I actually forgot to take these yesterday and could definitely tell the difference!

I usually take my breakfast with me to school. I'm not hungry when I first get up in the morning, so I bring food with me.  Lately, breakfast has included oatmeal with dried fruit & nuts and an oh-so-healthy Diet Mt. Dew. Don't judge....

School today included lots of grading.

I am beginning to utilize online classroom tools. It is so handy - having assignments turned in online where I can grade them digitally. I share a Chromebook lab with the teacher next door, so coordination can get kind of sketchy.

If its Tuesday, its Big Ass Burrito Tuesday at Chipotle. I love this weekly tradition!

After dinner, we ran a few errands, including gassing up the car and swinging by Target to pick up the Blue Ray disc of Deadpool. Rob is just slightly obsessed....

The night was wrapped up by spending time online, and having my nightly yogurt and Diet Dew (there may or may not be a slight addiction).

Have a great day!

Week In The Life 2016 - Monday's Words and Pictures

I am really psyched for Week In The Life this year, mostly because my documentation includes my new (temporary) teaching job. What a great chance this is to document what I want my true professional life to be.

Monday began early, as all weekdays do for me. Teaching an early morning class is tough for a night owl like me.

The start of the day includes a side trip to Starbucks for a white chocolate mocha (grande, with whole milk)

The morning was really rainy, which I really shouldn't complain about, seeing as this is Montana and we are in a perpetual drought.

I gave my DSLR (Nikon 7200 with a 35mm 1.8 prime lens) to one of my more trustworthy students in my early morning class to capture some pics of me teaching.

He got a little bit...uh...creative with his photography:

Yes, that is a rubber ducky in the likeness of Bill Clinton.

The day included lesson planning and grading.

The afternoon was lazy. I usually take a nap, or just veg out on the couch, watching TV.

It may or may not have included ice cream straight from the carton.

The evening involved teaching Zumba Toning. I get just a little bit sweaty....

Rob had Mexicali Beef Skillet ready for me when I got home.

And that's pretty much my day. One day down, six to go. Bring on Tuesday!!!!
