I'm linking up with my girl Jess today for the first round of Confessions on her blog!
I confess that....
.....I had a student make me laugh so hard the other day that another student in the group said "breathe, Ms. G, breathe!" These are some of the moments I love most about my job :)
....I'm over-the-moon excited to meet our friends' week-and-a-half old twins today after work. We're bringing by those cute outfits I shared with you on Monday, in addition to a pasta bake so they don't have to worry about cooking for themselves for a day or two!
|arent they so cute????|
....I'm totally engrossed in The People vs OJ Simpson. I remember the trial going on when I was in middle school, and we definitely paid attention and talked about it in school, but like with anything else, I was still young and didn't really absorb everything (which is a good thing), so it's really interesting to watch this and hear all of those details.
.....MG started in a new position at work a couple of weeks ago and since then, his schedule has changed to way better hours. I'm loving having him home at a reasonable time, and he's happier too. Plus, we get to cook dinner together every night now, instead of just a couple of times, which has been awesome!
....I've been reading The 5th Wave for a couple weeks now, and I'm only 50% through the book. Given, I'm not reading for hours each night, but I read a couple of chapters--you'd think I'd be through it sooner!
.....I've been drinking my new tea every morning before work instead of coffee and I haven't 1) fallen asleep at work or 2) killed anyone. Plus it tastes like apple pie, which is never a bad thing in the morning! :)
....it made me smile so big when a student I work with pushed through a difficult task and not only got through, but also got the correct answer on a test I was giving him. This was HUGE because he normally would shut down at any sign of difficulty and it made my heart sore when he worked through it! #teacherwin
....I love using my essential oil diffuser at work. Not only does it make my office smell heavenly (the kids come in and go "mmmmm!"), but I feel like it also helps keep the air at least slightly disinfected. I'll take all the help I can get through cold and flu season!
....it's exactly one month away from my birthday today!
...you should enter our Valentine's Day giveaway if you haven't already. Who doesn't want a year-long Birchbox subscription?? (Check out my post on Monday, at the bottom, to enter)
What are you confessin' this week?
