My second night in a row of 4-5 hours sleep. I woke up at 3:00am again. I even caught the emergency alert test on the TV for the second time in two weeks. Woohoo. Just kidding. This really started my day off on a bad foot. I have an appointment in two weeks to hopefully get my sleep situation figured out.
Jelly spent the morning helping me download podcasts and then watched me start a puzzle.
I went for a run. My back felt fine but my hammy felt a little jacked. This happens from time to time. I ran two miles and then did an epic deck of cards workout that included kettle bell swings! On my run I saw a fox in my neighborhood! He took one look at me and ran away.
It was a rainy morning...
Susan suggested I paint my nails to help myself from biting them. They look pathetic, don't they?
Needless to say, I was pretty tuckered out by the time my 8th class of the day came in around 2:00. I was messing students' names up left and right and the kids were calling me out on it... because heaven forbid you call someone by the wrong name.
"I have to remember the names of over 500 kids!" I said to the class. "From now on, I'm just calling you all 'Hey You'."
That made the kids laugh. Two minutes later, I called on a kid and called him 'You'.
"I thought it was 'HEY You'?" the kid said.
The best part of my day was doing the Sasha folk dance with my 4th graders. It was my first time teaching it and the kids loved it right away. If you ever want to see the cool stuff I do in my music room, "like" my classroom's Facebook page called EP Music Kids. I have a video of the Sasha dance on there.
After work, Paul and I watched Survivor. Then I headed over to a Better Beauty Ladies Night hosted by my friend Lauren. The purpose of the Better Beauty presentation was to educate women about the ingredients in make up and skincare products. Lauren is very passionate about health and taking care of her body. I would urge you to read about the story of Better Beauty and their mission statement.
The party was hosted by Lauren's friend, Karen. The first thing I noticed when I entered Karen's kitchen was the Hillary magnet on her fridge and the Hillary pin on her windowsill by the sink. I thought I was the only person with Hillary paraphernalia around my house! (Fun fact: I just learned how to spell paraphernalia!)
On the way to and from the party, there was some major aerial flooding going on. It was scary! I never drove in water like that before!
