Happy This Week

New clothes and new shoes! I needed comfy clothes with v-necks for chemo and was able to find some things that double as work clothes. I got three pairs of new shoes from Payless that I can’t wait to wear in warmer weather. I just love having new things to wear.

I finished Gilmore Girls. It is one of my favorite shows of all time. I cried like a baby at the finale. Sobbed! Don’t judge me, but I may start over and watch it again. (I am in bed a lot!)

Having so many people in my life that I can count on for love and support. I can’t imagine doing this without them!

My BFF, Amy, took me to chemo last week. I was nervous about not going with Matt but it was fine. Amy took good care of me and we laughed and laughed. The time passed quickly and she made it fun! Another of my BFFs, Sherri, took me this week. At one point we were laughing so hard she looked at me and asked “Is it ok that we’re laughing? Should we be sad?” which made us laugh even harder! It was so fun to catch up and hang out for the day…even at chemo!

All of my test results look good so far on chemo. My levels are low but where they’re expected to be so that’s good news!

I’m 1/3 of the way done with my tough chemo sessions! 8 more to go!

One of my most favorite students of all time will post “I love you, Mom!” on my pictures on Instagram and stuff and it makes my heart so happy. I really miss my students when they leave me!

Two of my girls came to me for friendship advice this week. It’s nice to know I’m still connecting with them in that way and they feel comfortable coming to me.

One of my students legitimately thought I was in my 20s. That made my day!!! He didn’t realize I had a 14-year-old!! 🙂 I said something about how I’ve been teaching for almost 20 years and he was all confused…then I told him I’ll be 39 next week and he was shocked. I guess he hasn’t looked at my face really closely and seen all the wrinkles! Or taken a close look at my veiny hands!!!

My students have been very good for the sub when I’m out. It makes it so much easier on me!

We are getting a new principal next year and that is always a little scary. We found out who it’s going to be this week and he seems like he’ll be great. Fingers crossed!

This week’s been a really rough week and look at all that happy! Some weeks you just have to look a little harder, right?

What made you happy this week?

  1. I’m so sorry it’s been a tough week and yet so glad that you found so much happy. You have some amazing friends, which obviously means YOU are an amazing friend. I love the stories about your students. You must be an extraordinary teacher.

  2. I love that your friends are there with you. Keep going, Tiffany!

  3. I re-watched all of the Gilmore Girls episodes recently and became almost delusional, having to continually remind myself that they are not in fact my real life best friends. So glad to hear that it brought you some happy this week! You deserve it, infinitely.
