Enough teacher ranting. I proved a theory this afternoon. I have heard or read many times "A body at rest stays at rest. A body in motion stays in motion." When I got home, I was starving and ate everything in the kitchen. Kidding, but I had quite a large snack of misc. things. All I wanted to do was sit and relax. Josh and I planned to go run after he gets home in a bit, but I didn't even want to do that. I decided to change out of my work clothes and start vacuuming pine needles from the tree removal.
This was all over the living room floor and the stairs and the doorway. I told myself I'd just vacuum a bit in the living room, but once I started, I vacuumed most of this corner, all of the living room, the stairs, and the doorway. Then I went in the kitchen and loaded all the dirty dishes into the sink. And now I'm looking forward to a run. I guess I proved to myself that I just have to get going. Most of the time, this is easier said than done.
After we run (hopefully on the track at the Y), I am going to come home to fix dinner and review my lessons for my observation tomorrow. Then I may work on some report cards if I'm feeling ambitious.
I'll try to be back tonight to share a (hopefully) good dinner recipe!
