Today Was a Good Day

Today Was a Good Day

It's the first day of the SOLSC, and I'm already struggling to find something to write a story about. I decided to just go through my day.

Today was a good day. (cue some Ice Cube here)

Unlike yesterday, I actually remembered to get my coffee ready the night before so it was brewed and ready and calling my name when I woke this morning.

As I walked into school, I could smell signs on spring.

I attempted an activity I've never done with my students before, and it turned out better than I expected. It was fun, and they really did a great job. A student got sick in my room today, but it was a quiet, unchaotic event. Two amazing students jumped right in to help the student without me even needing to ask. Today helped me see a glimmer of why I enjoy my job again.

A thoughtful coworker brought me a Reese's peanut butter egg. She said she wished she could bring me wine. The chocolatey peanut buttery goodness was a fine substitute.

My last block of the day tends to be chatty & easily off task, and today wasn't any different. However, at one point a student was sharing something amusing with the class, and as she giggled she snorted really loud. It was hilarious. I don't think I've laughed that hard during class in a while.

I left the building right when we are contractually allowed.

Despite being "starving" when I got home from work, I chose to eat some fruit instead of the leftover Jimmy Johns that was trying to convince me otherwise.

I talked with my husband in between his meetings, and then I heard the sunshine calling my name. So, I went for a walk before I needed to be at the bus stop to greet my kids.

I love the first day of March. The end of the winter is in sight which means summer is that much closer.

Here's to hoping tomorrow is another good day.
