Productive Day

I have not left the couch ALL day, but there were no naps taken. I have typed my little heart out in trying to get my social studies entry finished. Even Dave keeps telling me to stop and call it a day. I just don't want to give it up until it is all done. At least with the first draft. I narrowed my video down to 15 minutes and typed up the entire entry. The problem is that I had 17 pages and it can only be 12. I am down to 13 after reading it a million times, but honestly I have no idea how I am going to cut out another whole page. Which brings me here...I just need a break from it for a minute. My feelings keep varying towards the entry. At times I am confident that I have met the requirements and that it demonstrates my effectiveness as a teacher, but then other times I think it is not going to be good enough. As a teacher I am constantly telling my students, and as a mom my own kids, that all anybody can ask from them is that they do their best. I really do not think that I could give this any more than I have. I am very nervous about passing it around to be edited because I have put so much into it already. If people tell me that they don't think it will make it or that I have missed the mark I will be devastated. I am hoping to get it off to my mentor tomorrow and hopefully she will get it back to me by the end of the week. This week my focus is on my writing entry and I am hoping to get all the student work completed so I can take it to Florida and finish it there. I am not sure how much I will get done, but the great thing is that two of my friends, who have passed their board's, will be there so they could provide some instant feedback and I can bounce my ideas off of them.

Now onto the great part of today...I had a totally OP day. So OP that I have 1.5 points left. I am not planning on using them and may just walk a little to settle myself down before going to bed. I am very proud of myself for staying out of the cupboard especially considering there is leftover ice cream cake in the fridge and hubby went grocery shopping so everything is stocked. I really am not feeling very hungry though so that helps!! I've drank all my water, but have only had 3 servings of fruits/veggies which is not so great. Hopefully I will get all of them tomorrow! I just had to share the good news!

Hope you all had a productive day too!


  1. You've been working hard and been really productive! Congrats to staying OP during all that - you make me miss doing WW, I should try again.

  2. It is so hard to cut papers down to their requirements...I keep having to do that...

  3. Hang in there girl...we're all here to suport you. Think of how great you'll feel when you are all done. It is soooo worth it!
