I am so ready for spring. We’ve been cold long enough! It’s time for the sun to do it’s job and warm things up a little. This weekend we celebrated Easter, and it got me thinking about how I can resurrect my New Year’s resolutions and get back on track. I’ve been crazy busy with work this past month and a half. I have my highest teaching load yet, and I’m also presenting at a couple conferences and participating in a diversity training forum. Good news – I won a grant to take a group of student to the United Nations for a tour! It will be part of my unit on Persuasion, and I’m really excited about it.
Where have I faded away with my goals this year? Exercise! My Mom is killing it, but I am lucky if I get in a 3-mile run once a week, and maybe a yoga class. Our original goal was five 30+ minute sessions a week. I feel like that is still doable. Time to recommit.
I am also ready to do some spring cleaning. My apartment is small, and my rent is too hight to justify using this place as a storage unit. It’s time to go through my belongings again and see what I can let go of.
This Spring I am going to get back in shape with my family’s workout challenge. I also want to finish at least ONE puppet for my theatre project, and I need to start my 4-week sugar cleanse. I will be a grumpy bunny for the first few treatless weeks of the plan, so I have to be strategic about the start date. It certainly can’t be a week when my students are turning in papers. Ugh.
