Getting caught up

The overwhelming feeling of work and life in general has been decreased immensely. I have bulleted the things that have been consuming my life for the past few weeks....

Work:
  • I have completed my last student re-evaluation, had the meeting today, and only have to make a few adjustments to the report and update the IEP.
  • I have one IEP meeting left for the year, tomorrow, and have about 90% of the paperwork done.
  • Sorry, special education yap yap.
  • Midterm grades are due to teachers by Friday and I have mine done and will be sending them off tomorrow. booyah!

Home:

  • My mailbox that was hit in December by a furniture delivery truck has been re-installed. It spent most of the winter propped up in a snowbank. However the past couple weeks it has been lying on it's ass in my boulevard, and I haven't been receiving my mail because of it.
  • One of the twirlybirds from my roof was found in a snowbank a few weeks ago and finally replaced. I guess that is what was causing all that noise the week of the flood here... I am sure some of you remember me complaining about a rackety noise coming from my roof...
  • And, the latch on my gate in my backyard has been fixed. It was loose and I had to use a bungy-cord thingy to keep the wind from ripping the door off.
  • All house-hold repairs/fix were done in one day by a very nice friend of a friend. I owe him big time!
  • And... I finally set up my wireless printer/scanner/copier! LOVE it!

To top things off, I was able to get in a nice workout this evening. Ahh... it felt so good!

Despite all the craziness going on around me, as I look back on April thus far, things have been going pretty darn well! I have been able to get in a workout everyday this month except for 2. I have only missed 3 days of Jillian's 30-day Shred. There are only 2 complete REST days in my calendar thus far. My minimal daily workout has been just Jillian, but most days I have done Jillian with running, biking, and/or swimming. I hope to push a little harder the rest of April now that I have a bit ... more ... time.... !

Now it's AI time.. .and a little time to catch up on some blogs!

You have been keeping busy. Way to stay on top of your workouts. House stuff, is never ending!

Good for you with your workouts! I've been so focused on my HM that I have not been to the pool ONCE this whole month!! And I've been too tired since the HM to go either.... Grrr...I need to re-focus!

Jess said...

Midterm? When do you guys get done for the year? July?

Marlene said...

Awesome job keeping up with the workouts so well this month with all of that other stuff going on!

Runner Leana said...

You've had all of that stuff going on, but you've still kept up the workouts? That's awesome, congratulations!

Glad to hear that you finally got all of that stuff fixed, plus now you know what was causing that noise!

Man, you're so productive--- I can't believe your life has been crazy and you still found time to exercise. that's time management at its finest!

"IEP" is that like a "TPS report" (Office Space reference-hope you get it)
