A day in my shoes...

Well, I lied.  I told you next time I posted... it would be about literacy centers.  sorry to disappoint, but I'm pretty sure you'll be OK with it... because I'm linking up with Miss Katie from The Adventures of a 6th Grade Teacher for her linky party...
Thanks Katie for this awesome idea... I love reading about what everyone else's day is like.

Here's mine: and I'm gonna focus on MONDAY :)

5:40... alarm goes off...  I listen.
5:45... jump (my husband says I shouldn't jump... I'm gonna hurt myself one of these days) in the shower.
6:00... wake, dress, and feed my 2 boys.  (hubs helps with this, so I'm not flying solo...)
6:30... give hugs and kisses to Ben, Wade, and Henry (my husband takes them to the sitters, it's so nice to have the house to myself for 30 min. to finish getting ready)
6:31... grab a bowl of Frosted Shredded Wheat, blow out my hair, pretend to style it, listen to the past days Y&R as I do all of this
7:00... head for school
7:28... (Yes, I live 28 minutes away from my school... I hate the commute, but I love my school.) Arrive.

Ok- I think it probably took you an entire day just to read my outline... sheesh, I just noticed... I even stopped putting the ... after the time because I was getting tired of writing it! haha.  Now that's it IS a Monday, you know that in an hour I have to be at the library with my kiddos for story time- so that's where I am!

Thanks for reading! :) and leave me some comments!  how far do YOU live from school?? 


  1. I like to watch TV while exercising, too. Makes the time go by faster!!! :)
    Seems like a long day!!

  2. I lived ten minutes from my school...until they changed the stop sign to a stoplight! And now it's like twelve. Unless I remember to do a sneaky back-street thing.

  3. nice post. Now you can use this b2b importers directory to promote kids footwears import & export business.

  4. Yikes, you are one busy, busy girl. You got tired writing it..I can only imagine how tired it is LIVING it...wait,our lives are pretty similar...yes I can. Boys keep us on our toes, don't they!??!
