Hoping: to feel a lot better tomorrow. diagnosed with Strep this morning at the Walgreen's minute clinic after a quick and brutal sore throat set in late last night. Ouch. Spent the whole day in bed and of course, I have a ton of lesson planning to do before we are back at school on Dec 1 and I have a week full of lessons. Oh did I mention, I will also be observed at some point that week which means that every single lesson will need to be spot-on. Lovely.
Planning: lessons! See above.
Eating: since I hadn't eaten much all day thanks to angry throat, was able to somewhat enjoy a ChickFila nugget meal WITH fries and still come in under my calorie limit. #win
Drinking: milk this morning and a diet dr pepper now but the carbonation is almost too much for my throat still.
Reading: an advance copy of "The Life Intended" by Kristin Harmel. It's a little different but I am enjoying it. Anxious to see how it all plays out, that's for sure. And if you haven't read "The Sweetness of Forgetting" - you must. Absolutely fabulous!!!
Watching: Still only committed to "The Mysteries of Laura"...Downton is back in January though so I'll add that to my weekly watches. Yay!!
Cooking: Today. Nothing. Mac n' Cheese in the microwave for Ethan tonight - since he declined ChickFila.
Blogging: enjoying it but still not blogging as often as I once did. I suppose that's good and bad.
Listening: OK - I'm officially sucked into the Serial podcast after reading about it from a couple of different bloggers. Got all caught up on the 9 episodes over the weekend. Now I have to wait 2 weeks for the next one since they come out on Thursdays and there won't be one on Thanksgiving.
Thinking: about how nice it will be to have 5 consecutive days off in a row. Hello Thanksgiving.
Needing: a lot of rest.
Wanting: to wake up tomorrow and be 10lbs lighter. Is that too much to ask?
Hating: that my throat hurts every time I swallow.
Loving: the "feel" of the mall and certain stores during the Christmas season. Love it.
Avoiding: the stores on Black Friday. Since I have no one to go w/me, I just don't go. Instead, mom and I will be going to see Mockingjay Part 1.
