“Just another UN manic Monday….”
Surprisingly, my day was pretty UNmanic 🙂 Monday’s (and Friday’s) are usually tough for me because of the transition from weekend to work….BUT not today. I felt well prepared and well rested, I am positive that accounts for some of it ❤ (Or my moms fabulous TURKEY dinner last night!)
I want all of these bookmarks. This would surely make me happy any day (or at least giggle a bit to myself)
These are fabulous tips and things to think about. I am trying to incorporate most of them into my life. As uncomfortable and difficult as they are they are what makes you true to yourself and others
My parents and I have decided to alternate Sunday’s as Family feast day. One weekend MY HOUSE, next weekend my PARENTS house. I am thinking pot roast this weekend….<3
And maybe a game!? Suggestions?!
Speaking of GAMES. Anyone have an old candy land game they’d like to donate to my classroom? I have a fun sight word game that I want to incorporate with the pieces on the Candyland game board 🙂
Games make me think of TWO things. Tina and Mike. Most of my memories of games are with my cousins ❤
We loved Sorry, Connect Four, Battle Ship, Uno, Mouse Trap, Operation, Twister. Do you guys remember playing Hungry Hungry Hippo’s at babcia’s?
I also recall a Cabbage Patch was a HUGE favorite
Tina, did you have this one?
Oh geez, then we got these…
Our dolls used to converse?? Or am I making this up ?!
It was so much fun playing board games. I wish kids would play them TODAY as often as we did!!
ok, geez, FOCUS Diana, FOCUS!!! I get so easily distracted with kid stuff!! I think deep down, I still WANT to be a kid ❤
Positive approach and positive thinking (one of my goals)
So today, I felt DOWNNNNNNN because my students were giving me a hard time, behaviorally. Of course, I started to beat myself up over this, THEN I started to think about all the positive things that happened today!
One of my students can COUNT money!!! You guysssssssssssss this is huge!! A month ago, he would not even be able to identify the coin names, let alone count up to $1.00 (Thank you TOUCH MONEY! best thing EVER!)
Wonderful day for a walk, with Lily
I figured today was going to be the warmest of the week, so WHY not continue to make my day un-manic. It is amazing. I begin feeling so stressed, my mind is all over the place, I want to scream and kick and ……half way through my walk a sense of calmness comes over me. Then I am able to SEE things. I can see all the beautiful flowers, people, pets. I can feel the warm sun. I can feel the breeze. I smell dinners cooking. I smile ❤
I had a REALLY good “Feel Good” food weekend (and Monday)
I ate what I wanted. When I wanted. Ate more. Was content, didn’t really think much about it. Did not feel guilty having seconds of my moms FABULOUS Turkey Day in March dinner ❤
I hope more of these days are coming my way! ❤
