What things are you looking forward to this week? What things are you not looking forward to?

Looking forward to:

-Going out to dinner and shopping
-A speaker at my church
-Wrapping a writing project my class has been working on and doing our final celebration
-Continuing to enjoy my new Amazon Fire tv
-Trying some new recipes
-Anticipation/excitement of wondering if we will get a snow day...we have some rough weather ahead
-No school for students on Friday and only a half day for teachers
-Going to dinner and a movie with my mom on Friday

Not Looking forward to:
-The last few days of my period (it's been brutal this time)
-Enough snow/ice/cold that I will have to clean off my car in the mornings and traveling more dangerous, but probably not bad enough for a snow day (though hoping for one!)
-MAP testing this week
-Finishing everything up before the end of the quarter
-Doing report cards
-Dealing with this girl and her parents for whom I can do nothing right. I have constant worry of what's coming next in their line of complaints and the girl lies so it's not like I can anticipate/control what's being complained about

Looking forward to:

-Trivia Night on Tuesday

-Dinner with friends on Thursday at an Indian Taco place

-Actually having an entire uninterrupted week of teaching (no PD, data team, MTSS team, IEP meeting during teaching time due to parent's schedule, etc.) It's CRAZY how rare this is.

-Last week before our next after school tutoring session begins, which means I get to leave much earlier than usual every day.

Not looking forward to:

-Cleaning

-Challenging parent meeting tomorrow
