28 July 2009


after days of stressing, worrying, planning, and generally freaking out, I made it through the first day of school. I had 5 classes, 3 chemistry and 2 pre-algebra, and they all went pretty well. I spent the day going over the rules and procedures for the class, so we really didn't do any "work" just groundwork that will make class better down the road. Tomorrow I'm going to finish up the rules and procedures and start in on the basics. Luckily I followed the rule of having much more then I could possibly cover in on period. I'm ready for the rest of the week.

It was a long, tiring day. I am exhausted. Teaching is tough work. After school I had to go to a field trip for my master's class and wouldn't you know it was a walking tour. Yikes!! All I wanted to do was sit down and rest my feet. It was brutal. But now I'm home and resting. Tomorrow is another day, and I have to be ready for it.

In other news, I haven't ridden my bike all summer because the new dogs ate my shoes. I've been meaning to get some new ones but it's been a busy summer. Anyway, last night I sat down and ordered a pair from Bike Nashbar. They have some great prices on bike shoes. I got a pair of Pearl Izumi Vagabond Road Shoe for $34.99, which it seems they are out of stock of now. I also went online and found a coupon code that got me an additional $6 off. Oh yeah, I had to buy new cleats too, the dogs chewed them up also. I paid almost as much for the cleats as I did for the shoes. I'm very excited. I view shopping on line as the ultimate in Green shopping. Ha!! Any excuse to go shopping :)

Okay, enough. I have to rustle up some dinner and get my butt to bed.....
