I came out to my car from work with a little Provence care package from my dad. Tomorrow marks the two week countdown. After this week with ISATs, I cannot wait to get away. I just feel like I've spent way too much time with the same kids in the same room.
Although the temperature was not as nice today, it was a beautiful sunny day. Kendra and I enjoyed a lengthy walk together after I did a little cleaning. It is so great to hear the birds sing. Now Kendra lies snoring next to me, happy as can be.
After our walk, I began to fix dinner. Now that I'm home, I'd like to work on my health again. I fixed tasty grilled shrimp with a salad and toast with olive oil and Parmesan cheese.
As I sat watching the students take their ISATs, I thought that I'd like to be stronger. The kids are becoming a bit unruly with the testing and spring fever. I feel like the whip needs to come out. I was thinking that if I felt physically stronger, that I would also feel stronger mentally. Sometimes I just feel too exhausted to push back. Perhaps if I was feeling better overall, I would have the energy to put some of those tough kids in their place. So, in other words, the food will begin to improve and so will my activity level.
