Monday night, Vanessa and I went to Native Foods Cafe for a late dinner. I got the special: Oklahoma bacon cheeseburger. All vegetarian and delicious. It came with a side of sweet potato fries, my favorite.
She wanted to get a drink (none for me) so we headed to a bar that I’ve only gone to on weekends. The crowd was mixed but odd and honestly, a little scary.
I stayed up late because I was full and woke up early for another staff development day.
After eating out yesterday, I wasn’t too excited about lunch out with my co-workers. Except we picked Mama’s on 39 and they had roasted spaghetti squash with a bit of Parmesan and, on mine, I got grilled chicken (not pictured). Wow.
I skipped out a few minutes early to take a quick shower and meet up with another new friend. We had some good conversation that continued when I got home (via Facebook messaging and a 15 minute or so phone call).
I realized the power of positive thinking tonight. I’m a rather positive person and haven’t let much put me down thus far. My situation at work is in the air after the next month and a half, but I’ll enjoy it while I can.
My workout yesterday made me sweatier than I’ve been in a long time. I really had to push through with the overhead lunges.
My U.S. History classes will be making towers. I “borrowed” this idea from TED talks.
My one World History class will be writing prompts on how to prepare a peanut butter sandwich. I will then construct the sandwiches based on their instructions.
Finally, my Government classes will either A) play people bingo, B) think together in a fictional “Alien Attack,” C) make a timeline of their lives thus far, or D) anything else I can think of between now and then.
Where do you get the best burger? Believe the hype, I love the Greenbird from Umami Burger.
On Wednesday, I finally enjoyed the MARVELOUS SoCal summer with a 12-mile round-trip bike ride to the beach.
I went on a second MARVELOUS bike ride on Friday! Made myself a mango-banana Shakeology to go.
Went by to see my mom and aunt in the same dress. I guess it’s okay now that they’re older to be twins again.
Bike riding & hiking this week have worked my legs. Need to do something about those arms though.
Today is the first day back to work, and it is structured. 😦
My MARVELOUS co-worker, from when I was an aide, was asked to sub for one of the teachers! I’m so happy for her! Former aides rock!
