News at Home: A Low Key Week
This week fairly low key! I mean I was busy, as I always am, but nothing too major going on. Nothing left to organize or deep clean at home, so it was just maintenance cleaning. I did go in to school Thursday and Friday to start setting up my classroom. It’s 80% done already, as I have a lot less to do this year than I did last. I would have even less, except I’ve completely changed the layout to try to make things a little smoother.
I’ve also decided I need to do some of the weeding out I did at home in the classroom. I have a harder time letting things go at school because I don’t always know what I’m going to need with curriculum changes and all. But I need organization to stay sane and that’s going to mean some weeding out. I’m sure there’s some things I CAN’T get rid of, but hopefully it’s the things I may need, not the things I know with certainty I’ll never need. So that will be on the agenda some next week,though I don’t plan to spend much time at school next week – it being my final full week really truly off!
I didn’t get quite as many posts drafted this week as I wanted to, but I’m done with August – except Sunday posts and My TBR List, which have to be drafted more currently – and I’m making headway on September. I also didn’t get around to visiting quite as much as I would have liked this week, still trying to work out a solid routine that includes time for blogging – now that I’ve changed my mornings to do my Miracle Morning.
A much better week fitness wise! I got in exercise 5 days this week and tracked everything I ate since Tuesday! I think my Miracle Morning is really helping me stay focused, as a part of that is Exercise and also focusing on health. I’ve noticed that I’m really, REALLY bad at taking my vitamins though, so I’m working on that!

My TBR List August 2017 Winner!
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
I just finished…
I finished F*ck Club: Riley this week and it was really good – not at all what I expected, but in a good way (even though what I expected would have been good too). I already purchased the next one and started it!
So yeah, I started F*ck Club: Con by Shiloh Walker. Just started, but I expect it to be good too, since I enjoyed the first book so much.
And I’m still working on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, though I’m almost done with it. Man, Umbridge really is the absolute worst isn’t she?! I think she gives Voldemort a run for his money!
For my Miracle Morning self-improvement read I’m still working on Teaching with Love and Logic. I read only a few pages each morning, so it’s a slow go, but I’m really enjoying it and think it will really help me out this school year.
I think I’ll try to get in 1 book for my book club that meets Tuesday 15th… I’m a little late, but hopefully I’ll get to it quickly. I’ve been wanting to read A School for Unusual Girls for quite some time (since Greg reviewed it really!), so I don’t want to miss this chance to get it moved up my list.
I’ll move on to the next HP for audio – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Man I’m getting close to the end 🙁
All that will keep me busy reading for a while, I’m sure!
