I did no prep work for student teaching yesterday. Watching Hometown U lose a game they definitely should have won took a toll on me. I needed a nap by the time I got home. I did make the Staples run last night, carefully purchasing only the two items I went there for. Finally! Red pens! My sleep was disturbed over night by my concern over the undone prep work. I had dreams about not getting it all done in time, about being late to school on Monday, and other stressful things.
So by the time 7:30 rolled around I practically bounced out of bed. I organized my binder using the sheet protectors I'd bought at Staples. I revised the lab I'd developed for Friday based on my notes of what worked and what did not. I started doing research for the lesson plan I'm developing for this coming Friday. I started creating a PowerPoint presentation. I put together a plastic bin of school supplies to reduce the frantic searching for certain items. In there somewhere I also did two loads of laundry and showered (ah, hot water).
Eventually, FF and I went to Panera for a delicious soup and sandwich combo. From there we headed out to Second Home Nature Center to take photos for my PowerPoint. I strapped on my snow shoes, remembering what had happened the last time I'd elected to leave them in the trunk. The sun was shining and the nature center was hopping. People were desperate to get outside and enjoy the beautiful day.
After returning home, I added my newly taken photos to my slide show and worked on a few other things for school. Now I'm about to jump in the car to run up to the grocery store. Gotta go!
