Thankful Thursday- So that happened…

So, you may have noticed (probably not, but hey I can hope) that I kind of dropped off the face of the earth these last few weeks. First from the thankful Thursday updates and then from everything else. And considering why I made this blog to begin with you may be able to guess who or rather what the culprit is. Yeah, that whole making sure I don’t drive myself into the ground with work hasn’t exactly panned out, because evidently, I’m even more of a perfectionist then I would’ve thought. Also evidently a lot easier to become a workaholic than you might think. But hey, life or fate or what-have-you decided to step in and kick my butt so that’s no longer an issue, because my winter exhaustion finally kicked in and it’s walloped me. I’ve spent the last week and a half kind of feeling like I’m two steps from falling physically on my face.

So the overworking was a thing that is hopefully no longer a thing.

Let’s try this again.

This week I am very very thankful for:

No School
So, going along with this whole theme, I can say that I am very thankful for the fact that I have a five day weekend. Because the flu has hit my school so hard we’re having to call in substitute bus drivers. on top of that there’s flooding, so even if we had had the numbers to have school a lot of people would not have been able to get there anyway. Yay for a break! Couldn’t have had better timing.

New clothes? Kinda?
I discovered this week that I can finally wear a few sweaters and shirts that have been sitting in my bottom drawer for the last year or so. This one’s a little double sided since the reason they now fit is that my metabolism is out of whack, but hey I’ll take the positives where I can get them. This way I can still wear them while the temperatures are cool enough and if my system has to be on the fritz at least I can be cozy.

Hello Mr. Blue
We’re dealing with an awful lot of rain now, but we did have a really pretty day on Saturday. Blue sky, nice temperatures- just an awesomely beautiful day. We’ve been dealing with the winter blahs, everything gray and sunless, so seeing a clear sky was like getting a breath of fresh air. I hadn’t even realized how much I needed it until I stepped outside. It was like a twenty pound weight being lifted off of me.

A Nice Case of the Lazies
Last weekend was just really nice overall, since I spent it being utterly lazy. I did so little it’s not even funny and it was marvelous. The fact that I got to be lazy with my parents was just an added plus. I hadn’t seen them in awhile so i made an extended visit. Movie marathon on Saturday (and hey, who knew I’d enjoy the hallmark mystery series that much?), sunny outing on Sunday, and NO STRESS.

Bye Bye boring windows
Lastly, and this may seem like an odd one, I finally figured out how to hang up curtains in my classroom. Not done yet, but I’ve finally got a plan. I’ve been trying to figure that out for the last month and my kids spent just as much time before that complaining about the glaring sun in the mornings. Now I can avoid that issue and it’ll hopefully add to the environment score during my observations. Plus, it’ll just look nice.

So that’s that. Hopefully, I can keep up the time and energy to make more posts because the weeks that I couldn’t were absolute heck. I’ve missed doing my weekly updates hello and sharing these bright spots in my life. Hello I know very few people read these, at least in comparison to some of my other posts but I like them all the same and it’s good to just think of yourself sometimes. And now to flip this around- to the few people who do stop in, how was your week? Good, bad, somewhere in between? Feel free to drop a comment and let me know.
