Summer

Summer means more Alex time. The bad thing about having more Alex time is that I get very critical of myself because I just live in my head. Which is fine…sometimes I need SOMEONE to get me back on track.

I had a whole school year where the focus was my classroom. Every waking moment was dedicated to what was going on with my kids. There was barely any Alex time. If there was Alex time it was just to get me out of my work fog. Sure, I went to Yoga. But that just took the edge off for a second. I started couch to 5k… it was a good way to break up my week and feel like I was doing something other than living in my classroom. 

Now its summer time…the moment we’ve all been waiting for.

And its like I just woke up from a deep sleep. And I’m disgusted with the place. What the hell? Who let it get this way? Its 2am and you decided to eat chicken fingers from a box? You drank SODA??? WHAT?! Have you lost your mind?!?! Why is there a rotting avocado in your fridge? Is there ANY form of vegetable in your crisper? AND WHAT IS THAT SMELL???

Jesus.

What. is. going. on.

So….I joined www.bucketlist.org and added to my list “Run a 5K”…I set a goal date cuz………thats what people do. I added a few other things. This is supposed to be a summer where I get to do all the stuff I say I can’t do during the school year….so why am I just napping all the time? I’m glad you marathoned  ”Orange is the New Black” and “The Paradise”…..good for you….I guess. But at least make a commitment to eat more veggies! And drink more water dammit! That fitbit was working wonderfully during the school year…..GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND REACH THOSE STEP GOALS. 

Christ.
