Welcome to MY World....in pictures

Following Marcy, Lisa, and Jess... I thought I would give you an insight into my daily routine.... Okay so everyday doesn't look like this, but it can be quite similar... long and full of ... well, everything!

Rise and SHINE!!! It's 4:30... just enough time to dress, potty, drink some water, do some push ups and head for the gym..... at.......
3.1 miles on the thrillmill and I am home, hot, sweaty and barely had the chance to cool down....
Not too long later, around 7ish, and I am off to work...

...great tunes in the car, coffee in one hand (thanks to my wonderful Caribou Giftcard from the PTA), and a multi-grain bagel in the bag for breakfast...
Here is my so-called "office". Very lovely, huh?


Here is my ... well, ... classroom. My two tables, where I attempt to juggle 3-5 students at a time... for 45 minute chunks... After a day of teaching, I had two IEP's between an afternoon/evening of conferences, a no-show for my last IEP... and then I was home... at 8pm... do I look happy?
... just in time for grey's anatomy in some sweaties with a bag of single-serving popcorn on the side! I am sure I will be down for the count by 9:30!

Tomorrow is going to be another rest day ... and Jeans day with Alma Mater sweatshirts! Got to continue the Friday-payday-tradition... aps and taps after school!

Saturday I will be running 5.5 miles in memory of Ryan Shay. I can't wait!

Have a great weekend, y'all!

Jess said...

Fun! I'm glad everyone has decided to hop on the bandwagon and show us a pictorial of their day.

Wes said...

You do look happy, but I can't understand WHY after getting up THAT early ;-)

Danielle said...

Ah, the fun of early days. I got up early and strength trained this morning...now I wish I had coffee...I had a good routine of those early days for a solid 6 months...then I stopped. Hard to get back to it.

Thanks for the info on the Ryan Shay run. I hadn't seen anything about that. I'm planning to run 12 Saturday anyway, so the first 5.5 will be to him.

Caribou Coffee, yum! I wish we had that place up here. I love the idea of the pictorial. I may have to try that this coming week! Good luck on your 5.5.

We have the same wake up time, but I wish I was heading to the gym as well. Maybe that's a routine I need to mimic.

J~mom said...

WOW!!! I love it!! I cannot believe you get up at 4:30 am to workout!!!!! You are sooo dedicated!! Awesome job!

What a great idea for a blog post! I have been wanting to do something with a scrapbook (A Week in the Life...) but have never gotten around to it... seems like a lot of work. But a blog post - much more doable.

I love getting a peek into your life and the pictures of your classroom - perfect. Not what I envisioned at all. It is smaller but just as warm and inviting as I pictured for you. :)
