Week(s) 8, 9, and 10, Now It’s Time to Write Again!

I totally fell off the writing wagon, and I’m not going to give any excuses. Just got to pick back up and start going again. It is coming to the end of the school year, which is super bitter sweet this year. I am a nerd who enjoys spending the end of the year with…

Week Seven Still Driven

Week 7 was what I would consider a full week. I had my usual teaching, but also had some fun side projects going on. It was Principal’s Day, and kids were sending in pictures for my amazing principal. My mom retired from her job, and my sister and I made her a Disney Cookbook and…

Wonder Women Wednesday: Super Sophia

Quarantine is hard for active adults. But trying being a kid, and not being able to do all the things you are used to doing. Some kids are couch kids, but try being a super active dancer like Sophia. Sophia is a dancer, cheerleader, actress, and pageant queen. She loves being social and is a…

Week Six Trying to Make My Positivity Stick

Another week down! I feel as though writing these are helping me keep track of time, and give me something to reflect on. This week I had a faculty meeting to attend via Zoom, they are a lot crazier than regular ones but it’s so nice to see everyone and see how they are doing….

The First Steps on a Yoga Journey

I must have started “Yoga Revolution” no less than three times over the past year, and never made it past day 10. It is a 31 day yoga series on YouTube, hosted by Adriene Mishler. I would get busy, be tired, fall off the yoga wagon, or tell myself I’ll do some 10 minute “easy”…

Wonder Women Wednesday: Ashley Slays in Quarantine

Ashley is a former co-worker who is a Soul Cycle queen! If you follow her on Instagram you will see awesome posts of her workouts, fun OOTDs(Outfit of the Day), and gorgeous travel pictures. Her name on social is Ashslay, because she strives to slay in all she does. She is a second grade teacher…

Week 5 Trying to Thrive

Back to work after “Spring Break”, and had an overall good week. I did mask up to help Jim with a grocery run. I had some anxious feelings, but we got what we needed and practiced distance and safety. Well we are now scheduled for another straight month of meals, it’s all written on the…

Wonder Women Wednesday- Nikki Love Sending LOVE From Quarantine

Everyone had to change during Covid-19, and that was true for Nikki Love as well. Her job was now working from home, she would need to quarantine from friends and family, and there would need to be some extra care that she would stay safe. But something that hasn’t changed is how she is positive…

Week 4 Better Than Before

I have to say that after having a tough time last week, this week was better for me. It was strange to not see my family for Easter, but we are still following everything that we should. Hopefully you are too! This week was Jim’s 30th birthday, it fell on Easter Sunday so we did…

Wonder Women Wednesday: The Dolly Diary

No she is not a woman, I know that. But she is one fierce bitch. I honestly don’t think I would have survived the last year, let alone these last few weeks of quarantine without her. I really haven’t given her enough credit on my weekly updates on how she has kept me in check…

Week 3 Got to Me

  It has now been three weeks of being homebound. I have been trying to stay positive, and it was tougher this week. I have adjusted what I am doing physically, added some more mental/emotional support. Things are still an adjustment, and this is going to be a big life adjustment over the next few…

Wonder Women Wednesday: Nicole’s Community

One of my all time favorite people in the world is my friends Nicole. The fact that she also loves a good sweaty workout, is an added bonus. She has this amazing ability to draw a community of those around her. Whether she is spreading information on how to use essential oils properly, or encouraging…
