Ready For A 3 Day Weekend

What I Was Up To

This whole being back to work full-time is an adjustment.  Between that & still being sick the first half of the week all was quiet on my blog front.  I had plans of doing a post on Tuesday about being back in the classroom full-time but between being exhausted & only having spent 5 days in the classroom, I didn't really have anything to say.  (The first Sh*t My Students Say of this school year will be coming the end of this month though...I've already got material.)  I also had plans of writing a travel related post on Wednesday.  But, again exhaustion won out.  I didn't have anywhere specific to talk about yet so I was going to do a "where I hope to travel this year" post but I was too tired to think.  This week was basically:

5:30 wake up
6:30 leave for work
7 get to work
7:30-1:30 teach
1:30-3 kid free time
3:30-9 get home, watch Shameless, eat supper, go to sleep

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

Things That Made Me Laugh

Moments I'm Grateful For
6. Seeing snow in Texas
7. Getting back into meal prep
8. Nyquil
9. Shameless
10. Finally being able to enjoy a beer on my back patio
11. Officially being a full-time employee & not just a sub
12. Work days that fly by fast


  1. Girl, you are so in your element! Proud of you!! Yay to a lil snow and a brew-ski out back! Cheers to the weekend!

    1. Lol the fact that it snowed & then was warm enough to enjoy the back patio in less than a week perfectly sums up Texas. Have a great weekend!

  2. I like seeing a round up of posts - it's a great way to find new bloggers to follow. Congrats on the new job!

  3. Thanks for the shout out! :)

    Amen to bread. I would take a nice loaf of crusty bread over a bag of chips or a chocolate bar any day. Enjoy your weekend! :)

  4. Gosh, I haven't seen Shameless in SO long... I have no idea where I even left off. But great show. And I'm jealous of your three-day weekend! I wish I had that again haha.

    1. I hadn't watched Shameless since I think 2014 so I just started back at the beginning. I am so happy that I have a 3 day weekend. And actually, I really only have a 3 day work week because Fri I have a half day training. Hope you're having a great weekend!
