1. Work - There are only 27 days left of school; less than 5 weeks. That scares me because I still have to hold a handful of meetings and finish a tedious amount of paperwork. Time is running out, people! The kids are still working very hard and haven't shown many signs of spring fever, yet. It's great, but I know it's only a matter of time before they start talking more about summer plans than multiplication arrays, comparing and contrasting information, or what a complete sentence looks like...
2. Earth Day - Everyday should be Earth Day! What are you doing to make a difference? I am trying to make things more green around my house: recycling, using green light bulbs, etc.
"Man must feel the earth to know himself and recognize his values.... God made life simple. It is man who complicates it." ~Charles A. Lindbergh, Reader's Digest, July 1972
"Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed." ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi
3. Training - The past couple of days I was feeling a bit exhausted and know it had more to do with nutrition and sleep than it did with over-doing my workouts. So, after a horrible night's sleep, I decided to skip swim practice this morning. I made the decision at 4am when I was tossing and turning, but struggled to sleep much more after that. Grrr. My schedule called for a swim this morning and a short run this afternoon/evening. When I looked over my schedule from the past week I realized I haven't had a full rest day since a week ago yesterday. I have managed to swim 4100 Yds, bike 45 miles, run 12 miles and go to BodyPump class once within the last 7 days. It's time. I am going to rest today and get back at it tomorrow!
