SoL Challenge Day #6

Today I took a personal day, my first one of the year.

I almost didn't. I felt guilty as I wrote the lesson plans on Friday, and as I locked my classroom door on the way out.

I'm glad I did though.

I woke up at 9, made coffee, and watched John Oliver.

My lunch consisted of chocolate chip muffin batter and more coffee.

After a trip to the grocery store, I sat down and went through my lesson plans, responded to student emails, and took a nap with the windows open.

Tonight I am showered, groomed, and on my way to get curry with close friends.

I feel calm, collected, and ready for tomorrow.


  1. How absolutely wonderful! Your day sounds lovely. I think I need to do the same. Cheers to you for doing exactly what your mind and body needed!!

  2. So happy for you to have had a relaxing day :)

  3. Some times we just have to take a day for ourselves! Good for you.

  4. This sounds like a perfect personal day!

  5. You took the mondayness out of Monday. According to the Urban Dictionary, "mondayness" is "when everything seems to be going wrong, like on a Monday!"

    Since I'm retired, there are either no Mondays or every day is a Monday. Some days, not necessarily on a Monday, still feel like Mondays.

  6. it is good to be able to take a day for yourself.

  7. "I took a nap with the windows open" I loved this line. I can feel the freshness of the air. Great slice and well done taking a rest when you needed it, your students will love you for it!
