After a very not so marvelous trip to my surgeon last week (details later), I decided I need to try and see the “light” in some ways; so, I decided to take part in Katie’s Marvelous in My Monday (MIMM)!
Marvelous is… my morning cup of coffee (+ protein powder) out of my anthropology mug. I love this mug! I went to Philadelphia for an NCTM teaching conference and stopped by the store. Since everything is a little out of my price range, I got a mug! I must say, though, I do love it!
Marvelous is… Sitting in a coffee shop, sipping coffee, and being productive. I’ve been trying to at least read teaching books, journals, and articles during my time off. I need to do something to further my career and I figured this would be a step in the right direction. I need to read about strategies, management techniques, and mathematics confusion which may arise in my classroom. Since I’m down for the count, might as well do it now. Hopefully it will pay off and show during the interviews!
Marvelous is… Going to Wegman’s and browsing around the store because it is pretty much a foodie mall. I love the sushi selection in Wegmans, so I decided to go with a Brown Rice Salmon Roll and some edamame. I love edamame + sea salt.
Marvelous is… Cuddling with my puppy while he looks out my bedroom window. This is his new favorite thing to do! As soon as we go in my room, he immediately jumps onto my bed and parks himself on my pillows to watch (and occasionally bark, grr) at the birds and neighbors. I don’t mind because I get to use him as an extra pillow 🙂
Marvelous is… the 24-ounce Dunkin’ Donuts coffee I get every day and the one-eyed monster hair sweep. Yeah, this is my second coffee of the day. I drink way too much caffeine. It scares me to think about things that could possibly be causing my knee problems and I’m always afraid of the day the surgeon says, “No more caffeine.” I think I might die.
Marvelous is… Watching Elmo try to figure out why his toy won’t move. (It’s stuck on the chair but I won’t tell him that 😉 ) It’s the little things.
Marvelous is… Anytime Mean Girls is on television. I cannot ever get enough of this movie. I laugh every single time at the same points even though I’ve heard the phrases and quotes being used in everyday life. I’m one to admit I’ve thrown out many, “She doesn’t even go here!” lines in my day.
Not too many things but my weekend was pretty dull. Besides hitting up a bookstore to get a little reading done while Elmo got a haircut, I didn’t really do much of anything. This knee has got to get better! Hopefully everyone had a good weekend, too!
