This is soooooooooooooo long!!!
I hope your weekend was awesome!
Here's what we were up to...
Even though I went to bed before 8pm on Thursday night, I was tired when I woke up Friday morning! I did a 5 mile interval type run in my hood before I went to work. Because I started my workout 4 minutes early and ran a little faster than usual, I had time to make dippy eggs for breakfast. YUM!
Work was extremely frustrating. Without getting too technical in teacher speak, I will just say that PDE makes us do A LOT of busy work to simply prove we are teaching... which is counterproductive because the hours I spend trying to prove I am teaching could better be spent... oh, I don't know, TEACHING, or preparing lessons.
Just a warning to those going into teaching... you have to spend so much time doing crap that has nothing to do with teaching...
Not only that, but we keep getting new technology thrown at us with zero training and the directive to just figure it out as we go along. I shit you not. And to think I complained when we only had a 15 minute tutorial on our new grading system. Now we aren't even getting anything! So the 15 minute tutorials were the good old days...
I was in a pissy mood after work, but I had to rally because Paul and I were hitting up the York Fair..
First we got some food!
There is sangria in that Wendy's cup!
No, it's not filled up to the top!!!
No, it's not filled up to the top!!!
Then we saw the Marvelous Mutts! They are all rescue dogs!
Finally I found the Democratic Party of York's table.
When I woke up on Saturday morning, I felt sad for some reason. I stayed in my jammies, had some dippy eggs (comfort), and lots of coffee. Eventually I convinced myself to lift at home.
GET IN MY BELLY!
He hijacked both of my towels!
I can't take his beauty.
Paul and I headed to the movies to see Sully. It was a great movie! But honestly I enjoyed watching interviews of the actual crew and passengers on Youtube more than the movie.
Oh, I had straight up movie theater popcorn, sweedish fish, and diet root beer during the movie. Normally I eat chicken after I lift, but c'mon...
Did you know I am the person who tries to get a clap going at the end of the movie or at particularly heroic parts? The last time I got a theater to erupt in applause was when Paul and I went to see The Goonies. As soon as Sloth threw Mama Fratelli off the plank, I started clapping and everyone else clapped and cheered too. So when Sully landed the plane in the Hudson I almost started to clap but Paul stopped me. I tried to start a clap at the end of the movie. I thought it would work because the place was filled with senior citizens but the clap didn't take. Whatever. I will try again when we go see The Girl on the Train. Can't wait to see that when it comes out!
Did you know I wear glasses? Well, I'm supposed to. I try to remember them when I go see movies. It's really weird when I put my glasses on because everything is in high def! Maybe I should wear my glasses more often...
"Smile, you're on the Weekend Wrap Up!"
Dinner was Paul's famous pulled pork... made with chicken! I have been in love with corn lately, and of course, I love my salty, crunchy veggie straws!
That night I read Sully's whole book! It was vert fascinating. I was up so late...
First thing's first on Sunday... checking out new Snap Chat filters!
The filter really does not tame my hair!
I had dippy eggs for breakfast for the third day in a row! I did not feel like working out so I took an unplanned rest day and went shopping instead! I got some cute stuff and will show it to you tomorrow. This is getting way too long.
I did not get this! Why are bodysuits back in style?
The rest of the day was spent getting ready for the week and of course working on my puzzle. Paul had control of the TV all day (football) so I listened to podcasts and was in my own little "puzz puzz" world.
Getting ready for the week includes laying out all of my clothes/shoes for work.
It's odd that I wear five different pairs in one week!
Looks like I need to polish the black pair!
OMG I WAS SUPPOSED TO DYE MY HAIR THIS WEEKEND!!!
MY GREY ROOTS ARE GETTING SO FREAKING BAD!
