I borrowed this format posts format from Read. Reflect. Teach.
Since it’s my 32nd birthday today and I have parent teacher conferences all day until 7pm I figured this layout was perfect for me today.
Thinking about: who will reach out to me on my birthday and what will my husband do for it. Last year my birthday sucked there was a death in my husbands family and he was away during my whole birthday. It was just not a good time to be celebrating. This year we are very close to the same thing that happened and it just doesn’t feel like a time to celebrate either.
Thankful for: my mom and dad for always going above and beyond anything they ever needed to. Especially for me and own family. And today I received a circle table in my classroom and it seriously made my whole week! (I swear this is the decluttered version of my room)
Wishing For: time to go faster. My parents come one week from this Friday and I cannot wait ! I haven’t seen them in person (FaceTime doesn’t count) since Christmas.
Reading: Beachcombers by Nancy Thayer. I didn’t like her first book that I read. I felt the writing was too simple. But this was has a better plot line and more well developed characters. Especially when comparing her books to Elin Hilderbrand, they are ok. But I wanted the Nantucket Beach reading to still continue and I read all of Elin’s books already !
Watching: The ongoing watching of the Sopranos. I feel like this show is just like Weeds. It took us like a year to watch all of them. They were soooo good though!
Listening to: The movement of my daughter in her crib trying to go to sleep.
Drinking: Water with strawberries in it.
