Listening and Loving - I left school early to get my tooth fixed. Lost a chunk of it on Friday. The tooth didn't hurt, but boy oh boy, was my tongue sore from moving past that rough edge every time I talked. Yay for dentists! And yay for coming home early and getting dinner together!
Thinking - I sort of agreed to join with a colleague and her daughter to "Run the Year." That's right. 2,016 miles in 2016. And then I started wondering what I'd done. The momentum may wear off at some point, but I'm pretty surprised that I'm still able to get up when there's still a 4 on the clock (okay, so it's 4:55, but still!) and go. I'm averaging 5 times a week, which is truly amazing. And says a lot for the power of friendship and accountability to keep you going!
Wanting - oh man. Some weekends just fly by, don't they? Last night was one of those when I just wished there was another day....just one more!
Needing - I'm amazed at people who can pump out products! It takes me for. ever. I've reread I am Malala, and I'm almost done with the packet, but turning it into something that I hope will be good for my students, and then! Then, turning it into something that I hope others will want to purchase. Boy, that's a lot of work (and emotional energy) for me!
Swooning - my husband took a job with the Department of Education in our state last Fall, and he's been working long hours. It's all good stuff, but I'm looking forward to having a couple of days away with him. And in warmer temperatures!
