It’s been quite a long time since I’ve done a “Day in My Life” post. This is one of the last opportunities for me to do one before I am done with work for the summer, so I figured I’d squeeze one in before I’m on my “Summer Schedule”. (Note: I am officially off for summer vacation. This re-cap is from a day last week!)
Here we go, a Day in my Life- 6/4/14
Tuesday was a lifting day, so my alarm went off at 5:15am. Christmas immediately started crying for his breakfast, and Jelly had already been scratching the closet doors, so I fed the kitties before I did anything else.
They don’t get their food on a silver platter but they do get it on a red platter!
Then I poured myself an iced coffee and woke up while posting my blog for the day and checking emails. Then it was time to get dressed for the gym.
Be good today, Jelly!
I arrived at 6am sharp! Planet Fitness is nice and chill at this hour.
As you can see, my workout was just a hodge podge of upper body exercises. I was giving my lower body a rest day in preparation for a long trail run I had scheduled for that weekend.
I always shower at the gym to save time. I also eat breakfast in the car.
Milk w/ vanilla protein powder (I normally have chicken but it wasn’t on sale this week and I refuse to pay $2.99 a pound if I don’t have to.)
Coffee! (A splurge!)
Somehow, I got to work a little early. We are expected to be there at 7:55am. Here are some pictures of my classroom. It’s nice and bright and big.
I teach K-4 general music at a public school in Central PA. It was the second to last day of school, so my classes for the day were full of “fun” activities… Music Jeopardy, Instrument Memory, Jingo… stuff like that.
The “Thank you for being my teacher” cards had just started rolling in...
For my garden! What a cute idea!
I was feeling a bit anti-social, so for part of my lunch break I read a little bit at my desk.
I love Dan Savage and I really liked this book!
Teachers are allowed to leave work at 3:40pm. Some stay late to do work, but I always leave on time because I usually teach piano lessons after school at my home starting at 4pm. That day, I had lessons from 4-6pm.
Where the magic happens.
It was a little bittersweet because one of my students who I have been teaching since she was 6 years old had her last lesson. She is now entering high school. I can’t believe it! But she has grown into an independent musician and she will have those skills throughout her whole life. My work is done.
By 6pm I was pretty hungry, and what better thing to do when you’re hungry but make hot chocolate brownies!?
Paul and I played cards for a while. During our match, we had to take a quick break to frantically shut all of the windows. A huge storm had blown in complete with thunder, lightning, downpour, and hail!
This was my weird dinner: Lettuce topped with pasta salad, ground turkey, and ranch dressing. In Tupperware because we did not have a bowl big enough for my appetite.
While we ate, Paul and I watched a Seinfeld and an episode of America’s Funniest Home Videos… because that’s what old, married, 31 year olds do…
Dessert. Living dangerously and eating straight out of the pan.
You’re a little late, Chrissy!
I went to bed a little later than I wanted to- around 10:20pm.
That was my day! Not super interesting but Tuesdays never really are!
Do your fur babies eat off actual plates?
Did you ever take piano lessons or play an instrument?
Ever try hot chocolate brownies? These had marshmallow fluff in them!
