TGIF, Thank Goodness It's Friday, is something that most people can agree sounds so good! This week, especially, I have been looking forward to Friday. The week of work seemed long, and I was somewhat tired from entertaining my children during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The children both had after school activites this week, and I had an after school meeting so there was a great deal of juggling. I needed to work late last night planning with a colleague. We didn't get much done, but it was a start.
I also need this weekend to recover from last weekend. I have a laundry list of things to do that I did not get done last weekend with a few things added on like putting up Chirstmas decorations and going to Breakfast with Santa. I still have high hopes that I will get most of what I want to get accomplished done with the gift of two days without work.
Friday nights, though, I never get much accomplished with regards to housework. I am usually beat from the work week, and the children are usually happy to just chill in front of the TV and watch videos or play the Wii. Tonight was no different. I guess I still had school on my mind and brought it home with me. On the computer tonight I went researching for free resources on Teachers Pay Teachers. I found some really good things that I can use right away in the classroom. Then, I went searching on SMART Exchange for writing mini-lessons. I got lucky there also. I know, I know, I should have taken the laundry downstairs and gotten the first loads started, but that is where the gift of the weekend comes in!
