Let's just say I knew I was feeling like an emotional mess when as I'm recounting my day to Cricket - I wanted to cry.
As a PE teacher, when you make lesson plan it will last for a few days. For example, my first lesson plan for soccer will last until Tuesday. But it's not like that for health. I need new lesson plans everyday for 2 classes. That's ten lessons a week - now - that might not seem like much. But as a new, first time, rookie teacher - I feel lost.
I taught my first two lessons today in gym and they felt like a breeze. I'm comfortable and confident in gym class. I even made my 6th graders park their little butts for 5 beautifully silent minutes because they wouldn't listen to me. Not gonna lie - I had to keep myself from smiling the whole time. You gotta be a meanie on the first day or they'll walk all over you. but that's gym and gym is easy - health is very difficult, challenging, and scary at times.
All I want right now is for it to be 5:30pm. Because when it's 5:30pm - that means I'll be at home, with Charlie, laying in bed, catching up on the 3 1/2 hours of precious sleep that I missed last night...and the night before that....and the night before that.
So is it Friday yet? Not to mention - I wouldn't mind having my rents back. I know Switzerland is cool and all - but PA has "mountains" too. And - even better - I'm in PA.

It took a couple hours and lots of back pain from bending over for so long - but I'm happy with the way it turned out. Now lets just hope I don't scrape it or anything and scratch all the paint off. That could be bad.
I cleaned my room today - well - more like put my clothes away. Because I hadn't done that in about a month, my room was starting to look like a pig pen. Actually, it wasn't starting to look like a pig pen - it did look like a pig pen. So while Charlie slept - I cleaned. Dog's have a great life.
As I was cleaning I looked down and this is what I saw - my puppy asleep on the floor.
Then I took a closer look.
Ouch, that has got to hurt. Below is a video of Charlie, go figure. The reason for this video is to demonstrate for you one of Charlie's favorite past times. Spinning. It starts out innocently enough with a game of tug of war, then escalates to this -
She loves it. The faster the better - and she hasn't thrown up yet. You can tell when she wants to spin because she'll abruptly lay down during tug of war. She's a crazy dog.
