My post title isn't entirely true though...
Shortly while I am at the Y I should hope my breathing is LABORed... Need a good workout! lol
Also, by the end of the day I must complete my planning for the week. blah!
I am linking up with Farley for this month's Currently. I have to be honest- I have missed the past couple months on this fun linky- I am trying to get back to a regular routine!
I have loved being home the past couple of days and listening to my 4 year old (who just started pre-k a couple weeks ago!). She is a non-stop talker!!!! She is obsessed with drawing and writing letters (even though she can't really spell).
Yesterday I caught her pretending to be her teacher and sounding out her letters (which I wish I could say she did correctly). Last night we went to a big church festivity and the whole way home she sang every (and I mean every!) song on the radio. It was hilarious!
I have been really bad about making it to the Y since school started. I knew this would happen... but I haven't done anything to help myself. I ran my first 5k at the beginning of August (something that I planned for and worked toward over the summer), but I thought if I had a solid routine before school started I would be able to keep it up...
not so much! I did go yesterday and I am going to go today... so, that's something!
WantingI don't know about any other bloggers out there but I am feeling very, very unmotivated these days. Just like with the Y above, except my lack of motivation is spreading into other aspects of my life!
You can probably notice that Saturday when I blogged it had been a few weeks before then that I had blogged (so I consider this an accomplishment of 2 blog posts this weekend!). In addition to blogging I am having trouble conceptualizing certain skills that I need to help my kids focus on at school.
Since I moved to 2nd grade and we have a new reading series the packets I made for Treasures last year are not as helpful as they were. I can use some things, but a lot are specific to what we were working on in first grade. I have contemplated making new packets to go along with Journeys but then I think about how much work that is! Am I just being lazy? Probably. I bought a few other people's packets on TPT to check them out, but haven't found anything that I am in love with.
I am slowly but surely working on this motivation factor... I think it might be the back to school blues! lol
*Skipping Needing... I think you got it!
Love Yourself Spot
1. I think (going back to the Y thing) that I am going to make a Y schedule and go at least 3 times after school. There is a Y literally 1 mile from my school that I could drop in to 3 afternoons.... I could make up a ton of excuses, but I just need to do it!!!
2. I am in desperate need for a haircut! I haven't gotten it done since May. The hubs doesn't understand how a new do and truly make you feel 100% better! Scheduling that soon!
3. I am generally a positive thinker..except...when it comes to me! I think I (like many other women) am quick to judge/criticize myself. I have certain days where I feel really great about myself, but lots of times I can find something wrong with me. I need to be more positive, but it is truly hard to do!!
So, I will end it here! I hope everyone has a fab Labor Day holiday and a great week at school! Can't promise I will posting again before the weekend (or should I say "a weekend"- you never know when I'll be back!)
