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

Looking Forward to:

Seeing my class again
Reading my book
Making sure I have some time for myself each day this week
Going to my parents for the weekend
The weekend!
Some of the lessons/things I have planned for the week
Watching live streams of high school basketballs game (at least we have access to them!)

Not Looking Forward to:
-Grading papers and getting things ready for the week
-Getting up early and having to go bed early
-Cooking dinner each night after work and cleaning up
-Not being able to see high school basketball games in person (I'm glad we can at least watch a live stream, but in person is so much better!)
-It's supposed to be cloudy/grey all week.
-Dealing with post holiday depression

I'm super lame these days. I'm actually looking forward to going back to work and having a routine and purpose, and people to talk to! I was alone all break and while I did a decent job filling up my time, I've had enough of it. I'm also looking forward to a Trader Joe's trip this week as that's one of my only sources of entertainment left .

I'm not looking forward to getting up early again!

Looking Forward to:

Seeing my sweet students again; I really miss those little faces!
Seeing my colleagues; the other teachers in my hallway are my lifeline
Being busy all day; I don't like the emptiness of being a SPEN (Single Parent, Empty Nester)
Piano lessons starting up again; I enjoy them, and I love the extra money!


Not Looking Forward to:

Going to bed early, getting up early.
All of the Covid precautions --- the masks, the cleaning, the remote learning
Possibly being exposed to Covid every day

I am not looking forward to getting up and out of the house. I managed to sleep in until after 9am almost every day of break. Getting up is going to hurt.
