SNOW DAY #3 of the week.  It is crazy that I have not been at school since Monday!  I am a little worried about my kids, I hope they are warm and have had enough to eat all week!!  Most of them will be fine, but a few of them have really rough home life situations.

I was semi-productive today.  I wouldn’t go as far as very productive, but I did get somethings done:

  1. worked out for an hour
  2. made b-day treats for my neighbor
  3. made b-day treats AND took them to the post office to mail to my bro and BFF
  4. laundry: washed all of our sheets – again!
  5. laundry: every piece of clothing in our house is clean.
  6. dishwasher
  7. lesson plans

So as you can see, it was SEMI-productive, nothing major.

Today, I was all set our to make 16 Bean soup from TJ’s and I started cooking it around 8:00am.  Around 3, it was almost cooked and I could not stand the smell of it.  Nothing was wrong with it, I just did not want to eat it.  Sooooooooo change of plans.
