Olivia’s birthday party invitations went out this week and we’re getting a lot of yes RSVPs!!! We’re having a faux slumber party. I’m not sure who’s more excited…her or me!
Gabe had his junior high band fitting on Wednesday and decided he’s going to try the trombone. I’m not going to lie that I’m having a hard time adjusting to the idea that my oldest two will be in junior high next year. But it sure is fun and makes me happy to watch him get so excited about the new adventure.
The Plan is going very well and I’m becoming its biggest promoter. I feel amazing. I’m on day 10, halfway through already. I just wanted to feel better and I do.
I had a really good class with my Algebra II students on Thursday. It’s the beginning of the semester so they’re all fired up and I’ll enjoy it while it lasts. It’s like all of those New Year’s resolution people at the gym. It fades, but I’ll take what I can. Because we have many new students to our school in January, during class I reminded my students of the clubs we have at our school. I am the adviser for the Gay Straight Alliance club which promotes positive relationships between teens of all sexualities. I love being part of this club. The kids are amazing. So I mention this during class and one of my students immediately instant messages me that he wants to join. He sounds very excited and tells me he’s happy to have a place to go because his family isn’t very accepting. That always makes me so sad. I’ve been working with this student all year and I just wish I would have mentioned it sooner. It made me feel so good that he was so happy to find a place to fit in.
I loved waking up this morning and being able to watch Project Runway! Man, I love that show. (You’re supposed to say that like Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids when she’s talking about Wilson Phillips…just so you know. I enjoy any opportunity to incorporate Bridesmaids into my life.)
At the beginning of the week it was almost 60 degrees. Now it feels like 0. I am super happy Matt decided to buy me a space heater instead of flowers last week!!
