A Peek At My Week!

I am in denial.  Definitely in denial.  My three week break is coming to an end.  So, I am reluctantly linking up with Jennifer for her A Peek At My Week linky.
First of all, I need to explain my recent lack of presence on the blogosphere.  You might remember me joking about my awkwardness and lack of grace on land?  I am proud of my childhood spent swimming, but all those workouts did not leave much time for developing grace on land.  Fast forward to last Monday.  I am working out in my "boot camp" class, doing Tabata (basically a timed torture), and it involved running.  I swim, and apparently I don't run.  I fell, headlong into the mirrored wall with the ballet barre (yes, I literally saw the irony in slow motion as I was falling).  Don't worry, it was the one of the few times my voluptuousness actually came in handy - as built in airbags.  Just a little bump on the head, but a bruised sternum hurts.  Really, seriously hurts.  Sitting upright without an icebag was not really something I enjoyed for the majority of the week.  Thankfully, I had the week off or I would have never survived a day at school. 

So after a week of reclining, watching Netflix, with ice and Motrin, I am back to slowly planning my return to school.  Lucy did not think very much of it.
Obviously, I have betrayed her by even getting the textbooks and laptop out.
She finally gave up and started her passive protest.  Excuse her lack of fluffiness, brushing her daily was not possible this week.
Unfortunately, her feelings mirror mine exactly:(.  

Luckily, I did some planning before I left campus three weeks ago.

New This Semester
New Afterschool Math Intervention Group

Build an Essay (paragraph by paragraph)- a work in progress
Long Division Homework Packets (no more than 10 problems a night)

Not to mention we need to hit fractions hard!

  1. Oh my gosh....poor you!!! I was wondering what happened to you. I just figured you were living it up on your last week of break. I'm so sorry for your head boo boo. :)

    I wish you a great week back! Don't worry...it's like riding a bicycle. This time tomorrow, you will say "what break???"

    Can't wait to hear how Word Parts We Know goes! Thanks for the shout out!

  2. I did not see a post on Joy in Sixth Grade with her favorite teacher listed. I was able to enter everyone else's. Could you please supply me with her fave teacher's name? Much appreciated!
