Currently November!!!!

Ohmygosh....It's currently November.  I can't believe how fast this year is flying by.  I have the best students ever, and I want the year to go slower, so that I can enjoy them.  It's one of those years that you could feel like you could just loop with your class forever.  Ya know?  Plus, my daughter is an 8th grader, and I am just NOT ready for her to be a high schooler...that is the last stop before college and leaving me.  :(  I'm just not ready.  Slow down, Mr. Time!  Well, at least I got an extra hour this weekend to hold to it all a little bit longer.  Time to link up with one of my faves, Farley, from Oh Boy 4th Grade.  Here we go!

My old teammate got me hooked on Dateline.  I love to record it on Friday nights, and then watch it early on either Saturday or Sunday.  Keith Morrison's voice is so soothing, and I now associate it with weekend me-time.  LOL  I'm also listening to my annoying refrigerator.  It buzzes and drives me cray cray.  :/

Last weekend it was 88° last weekend, and it felt even hotter.  Yesterday to welcome November to central Texas it was a delicious 46° when I woke up.  The high was only 68°.  It will be a little warmer today, and even more warm Monday and Tuesday, but the rest of the week looks like it cools back off.  I can't wait for the cool to be here to stay for a while.  I hate hot weather, and I am one of the few central Texans who enjoy the chilly weather.  I am going to soak it in while I can, because it never stays cool for very long. 

My daughter's trick-or-treat bag is next to me on the coffee table.  I just keep chanting in my head DON'T eat the candy, DON'T eat the candy.  ;)

I had my PDAS, my formal observation for you non-Texas folks, last Wednesday.  They have like two weeks to get it back to us, but I am so impatient with things like that.  I was always the kid who wanted my graded papers back immediately, etc.  I just want to know whatever it says.  I do not do well with delayed gratification.  I'm sure it's good, but I just want to know.  Ya know?

I had been doing so great with my exercise.  ALMOST every day for about three months.  Then I hurt my shoulder, and I could barely move my arm for about a week.  So I was resting it.  I think that was good, but it's been two weeks since then, and I've only exercised about three times.  NOOOOO!!!!  I must get back on the wagon.  This week will be different...I will NOT give up.  I have lost about 20 pounds, but I have a ton to go, so I will exercise and eat healthy.  I'm making my exercise journal/diary today to help get my motivation back.

I'm finally reading The Fault In Our Stars.  I know, I know...I'm way late to the party.  My daughter read it last year, and she was so mad that I didn't read it in time for the movie.  I won't see the movie until I'm done reading it.  So, I am going to finish it today, and then we can FINALLY see the movie.  I bought her Mockingjay Part 1 tickets for the day it comes it, so that kind of makes up for this...right?  I'm off to read it right now in fact.  I gotta finish so we can go to the zoo to visit the lions, my favorite, when my daughter wakes up.  :)
