MIAGD: make it a great day
Now that it is finally Wednesday, the end of my teaching week, I can finally relax a little bit more, and not feel so packed in.
Last night, G opted to stay inside to play piano, and watch musical theater on YouTube rather than joining me on the deck at 10:00 PM. It was probably a good thing because I promptly fell asleep in my chase lounge, and remained so until 2:30 AM.
I am sorely missing my documentaries, and my regular connections to US history. Yesterday afternoon, my teaching day ended at 4:30 PM due to students at cross country camp, band camps, and something else, which I’m already forgetting.
Immediately after a very early supper, another unique thing in my day, G wanted to watch a movie.
I have returned to the mindless, crass, mildly funny world of teenage boy movies. We watched SCAREY MOVIE.
It’s been three years since I’ve been forced to watch these vehicles, and I realized that with the past two weeks of absolutely no “me” time, I have not watched any of my documentaries.
Over the next three days of not teaching, I intend on getting my documentary/history fix. However, there’s also a house that is badly in need of attention and organization, especially G’s room, and his closet that is still filled with my items.
The one thing I learned with the older boys, was that I always had to take some time for myself. Since I am a single fatherI really need to stick to my guns on this.
All parents need their own personal time. Be sure you grab your own personal time! It’s healthy.
While you are taking time for yourself, never forget to make it a great day, Folks!
