|From A Cup of Jo today. Love her blog.|
In the words of a good friend, "I'm Officially the Mayor of Crazytown." Desk/classroom looks like a complete disaster zone, gas tank is empty and I didn't take a shower today. I need more TA's to help my organize all my music and materials! We're having another BAKE SALE! ACK! I had a student get me a Xenergy drink at the gas station today during lunch in desperate measures. Distracting myself from the never-ending google docs & spreadsheets for a quick post.
When life gives you lemons.... go bananas! We love bananas for their price, taste, filling-quality, and convenience. They have quite the interesting history (ask James for more details...or read the book). I pretty much always have one on my desk or in my purse. PVC's are a hazard when I'm tired/overextended, and apparently the potassium in bananas helps.
Here is Josey eating a banana whole for the first time. Pretty much the best thing ever.
::She often exclaims: "Nana, nana!" or just "Nan." Meaning banana and all other yummy food that doesn't fall under the category of "apple"::

When I'm low on sleep and needing to emit loads of energy, the most important ingredient for success is water. Constant! Next year, I want to get a water cooler for our room. Craigslist hunt! Yes. Water is so very good!
Tea is my savior on days like today and tomorrow too! Earl Grey alt. w/Lemon Ginger Green. Instant calm. My tea kettle's handle broke, so it's not as convenient as it once was. Doesn't this fancy electric tea kettle seem fun?
|Keep Calm. It's one of my many mottos.|
Ok. Back to work! Pronto! Thanks for reading my random self-cheerleading. You really don't have to. But I want you to & I'm cheering for you too! Trying to share some good ideas with other busy folks, too. Go TEAM! xo
