Thursday 5


Happy Thursday!  It's a late start for me on Thursday and after Friday I'm welcoming SPRING BREAK!!  Woot!  Head over to Nicole @ Flip Flops and Combat Boots to jump on in!  This weeks words are:

Upbeat
Fantastic
Accomplished
Thoughtful
Brilliant

1.  It's hard not to be upbeat when you know that the upcoming Sunday can truly be a lazy day - NO school for me for an entire week!  It couldn't come fast enough, let me tell you!  We made plans to triple date with Haywee, her BF, and her BF's parents.  They're (well, aside from Haywee) really big gun people and we're going to do some shooting.  I put the BF on speaker for DH so he could rattle off all of the weapons we'd have in tow.  The BF said it's not the whole "Arsenal of Freedom," but it was enough to make DH a little excited.  Me, I could stand to get some shooting in before I head down to Lackland to qualify on a weapon.

2.  I squealed a little when I read that Stoney LaRue was playing at the local country bar on St. Patrick's Day.  He's a Texas country guy that I was exposed to back at Cadillac Ranch in Fayetteville.  I'm going to hear him play this song alone!  This song is fantastic and totally stuck with me!  Now if I can only talk Haywee into braving the drunken St. Patty's crowd downtown...


3.  It's been a semi-accomplished kind of week.  I have IEPs coming up in April, but I've been farting around most of this week, doing piddly things here and there.  I do feeling like my students are being productive with our lesson on inequalities.  They seem to be grasping the concept fairly well, including my "lower functioning" ones.  It was a nice, easy lesson for a weeks worth of instruction.  Our fourth quarter began for a week, and then we're out for break.  Not sure whose brilliant idea that was...

4.  I have some amazingly thoughtful BFFs in my life, and I'm so glad that I can reciprocate (at least, I hope I do).  Between Noelle, Haywee, and Trinnie, I've been triply blessed lately.  I could go on for hours, but I won't bore you.  Squishy hugs all around!  

5.  Hmm, brilliant?  Some of my students had some brilliant, lightbulb moments recently.  If I was an annoying Staples employee, I would've been hitting my "Easy" button nonstop today during Geometry class.  C'mon guys, we can do this!

yay for Spring Break! I wish we had live music at bars around here...it's one thing that I strongly dislike about Jville!

Have a great Spring Break! It never seemed to last long enough when I was teaching.

@Nicole - Exactly! I'm going to try to make it out, but I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to breakaway from all of my responsibilities tonight. I have duty at a track meet, and I need to make spaghetti for the math department tomorrow and our slow cooked dinner for Friday.

@Tiffany - Thanks, I plan to! No fun vacations on the agenda, but I'm going to get some work done around the house, work out a lot, and relax!
