My kids are asleep. My husband is out playing softball. I am sitting here alone. Time to type.
So lately...we have been fairly busy. I had my 10 year high school reunion last week. It was so much fun! We went to a bar downtown and had drinks and appetizers. It was wonderful catching up with my classmates and friends. It was also really nice to get out of the house and do my own thing.
Our October is shaping up to be crazy. We have things going on practically every weekend. This includes Homecoming, which is some crazy planning. We want it to be really awesome for the kids, so we are trying some new things this year. I will be happy when it's all over, so I can get a bit of time back!
In addition to the craziness on weekends, I am crazy planning for classes. The new curriculum has a lot of project based components that require a lot of backward mapping, so my time is taken up working on those. I am enjoying teaching the English 11 curriculum. I am not so sure about English 10. I have been teaching 10th grade for 7 years now, and I think I am ready for a change. I like getting my feet wet with one section of English 11, so I am thinking (hoping...Becky, are you reading this?) that next year I will be ready for something new.
And as if these things were not enough, I have decided to try new recipes in the evenings for dinner. Last night I made beef and broccoli, and it was awesome! It tasted great. Tomorrow night, we are going to try bang bang shrimp. I really love Bonefish Grill's bang bang shrimp, so I hope I can make something close to that.
Anyway, time to plan. Until next time...
