I don't want to break my posting streak.... if 3 days in a row can be called a "streak"... :)
3 things that happened today:
I got my forensic science final written and I'm pretty proud of how it turned out! I wanted to do a "practical" type exam, but I don't have time to do complete lab style write-ups, so they are being given a case, several pieces of evidence, information about the suspects, and have to use the evidence to draw a conclusion.
This weekend was pretty sedentary due to rain and I was worried that today would be the same. I broke away from school around 3:30pm (which is WAY early for me!) and came home to do round 2 of cleaning house. When hubby got home, there was a break in the rain, so we decided to get a short walk in. When we left the house, I was only around 4500 steps, so I decided to keep walking until I reached 10K. My "short walk" ended up being about 3 miles and while I was out there, I received an email alert that I had reached my 250 lifetime miles. yay! :)
Today was a "feel good" day in that I received multiple comments on how I looked. I know I have a lot of pounds left to go, but it definitely encourages me to keep going when I hear positive comments! :)
2 books on my to-be-read list
Summarization in Any Subject by Rick Wormeli - I've been eager to read this book for almost a year and it was finally available in our school professional development library. I'm sure I'll be posting some reflections from this book over the summer!
Grading Smarter, Not Harder by Myron Dueck - This is one of the ASCD Member books that should be arriving this summer. Since I'm always interested in assessment, I'm eager to receive this book!
1 thing that has gotten me through the last weeks of school
I've always struggled to drink the water that I'm supposed to drink. On Mother's Day weekend, hubby and I were heading out to see the mom's and stopped in at Walgreens. They had the water flavor sticks near the checkout and I saw one I wanted to try... Margaritaville Pina Colada. OMG OMG OMG... it is amazing! Of course, I went back and they were sold out, so I checked all 3 Walgreens in my suburb and found them at the one a few miles north of my house. I ended up buying 12 boxes and I'm down to my last box. It tastes like a real pina colada, which definitely helps me get through those rough moments at school! :) (No worries... it's totally non-alcoholic!)
