Sleep, Eat, Work, Repeat

My life lately has been very routine: sleep, eat, teach, workout [if there’s time], meet with wedding vendors, and REPEAT.


I didn’t sleep very well last night [IDK why] and woke up at 4AM.  Unable to fall back asleep, I decided to start my day a couple of hours earlier than usual and make the most of the extra time.  I hopped into the shower, got dressed, packed lunch for Ryan and I, made tasty breakfast, caught up on emails, and tidied up the apartment.

On my way out the door I made a cup of coffee to-go but ended up wearing most of it not drinking it [FAIL].  Luckily, I had a few minutes to spare and made a second cup…


The past couple of weeks I’ve been stressing out because I have to begin collecting evidence.  No, not criminal evidence, rather evidence in the form of work samples from my students for the state assessment.  My students do not participate in the general state assessments, rather they complete an alternative assessment that portrays their work in a portfolio format…  So over the next month I have about 40 mini projects to collect, complete, and submit!

My lunches the past two days have looked pretty similar, the main difference being the protein on top of my salad [ham yesterday, tuna today]…

After school I swung by the gym for a quick sweat session before Ryan and I drove up to Maryland to meet with another potential wedding vendor.  How else do future married couples spend their evenings?  On the way home we stopped by the Teet to pick up a few groceries [specifically, Fresca] so we didn’t get home until after 8PM which meant dinner needed to be simple, yet satisfying…

I’ve been awake for over 17 hours and I’m pooped.  It’s time to end my day on a sweet note with a bowl of ice cream + cereal [tastes just like a crushed up waffle cone!] and call it a day…  Good night!

Daily Memorable Moment February 28:  I found out that 2 of my students will be transferring to a new school within the next 2 weeks…

Question:  What’s the tastiest breakfast you’ve enjoyed lately?

Question:  Do you typically pack your lunch or go out?
