A Day in the Life of a Teacher
Okay, so I know I just posted around 10 minutes ago, but I've been excited about Jessica's linky party since Tuesday. I took pictures of everything I did Tuesday and let me tell you, it was a fun day!
Welcome to a day in the life of me!
The first thing I did Tuesday is I finished this Beginning of the Year teacher packet. I still have TONS of these to get done, but it was nice checking another one off of my list.
After I finished the packet, my hubby and I went to breakfast at one of my favorite local places. I get their pancakes almost every time I go because they are so fluffy. Then, I have to decide between all of the meat choices - bacon, link sausage, sausage patties, bacon, etc. This time I went for link sausage. I love covering my pancakes in butter and syrup. When I finish those, I dip the link sausage into the syrup. This is also one of the only times I had a Coke this week. I know sad, but I just never seem to be able to drink orange juice or milk with breakfast food. Oh, and since we are discussing my weird eating habits, I also only eat one food at a time.
When I finished breakfast, my hubby and I ran to Target so I could grab some Tylenol Sinus. I also ended up grabbing some more gum (I LOVE Orbit strawberry and wild berry gum right now) and I grabbed a pair of shorts.
By this time, it was around 11:00. I don't think I've told you that I was leaving to head out of town again. My hubby and I joked all weekend that this was my vacation from vacation. I couldn't wait to leave on this trip because I was getting to go see one of my dearest friends in the world. Well, I definitely couldn't go visit empty-handed, so we ran to our local candy store. Her favorite candy as long as I can remember is sour gummy worms and she always eats them with a diet Coke, so I filled up a bag of them. I also filled up a bag of strawberry and grape gummy bears with sour strips on top for her daughter.
Then, we ran to Dick's Sporting Goods where I grabbed this hat and this little gadget. I love hats, especially in the summer. We were checking out, and I spotted this back rubber thing. I think I'm hoping it will mean extra back rubs, but it will probably mean one more thing that should be in a yard sale.
So, 11:50 rolls around and um... yeah, you see this picture. I'm not packed yet. The goal was to leave by 12:30, but between packing, getting gifts ready, etc. I think I walked out of the house at 12:55. I hated that I ran a little late, but on my way to her house they were cleaning up a really bad accident. I realized if I had left on time, it could have been me in the accident. It was definitely a reminder that sometimes running a little late can be a blessing in disguise.
Anyway, I got up there and we jumped in her car and ran to Hobby Lobby. I had stuff I needed for the camp I am going to in a few weeks (I'm teaching arts and crafts), so we filled a buggy up.
I forgot to take pictures after that. Between dinner, sitting around her kitchen table talking, laughing, and joking anything that may have mattered just faded into the background. That seems to happen every time we get together. Those are the best friends to have! The ones that love you for you - not for your job, printables, your spouse, or your talents. Plus, they manage to remember you are picky about green beans. Fortunately, I have several and they are definitely a blessing and treasure to me.
Sorry if I'm rambling, but just had to brag on her for a second :) It always stuns me how it feels like FOREVER for my trip to get here and how it is gone in a second. Fortunately for me, I get to see her again VERY soon because you remember that trip to Hobby Lobby? Well, I forgot to get the stuff out of her car and her hubby took it to work yesterday, so I had to come home without my arts and crafts stash. My hubby and I are going to be meeting up with them at some point in the next few days to get everything. I'm sure you realize how sad I am about that, right?
This day, really all four days was definitely one of my favorite parts of summer.
Hope you guys have an incredible day!
