The power source got cut on my row of treadmills at the gym and I almost completely bit it.
The two guys next to me totally did though. We were quite a sight.
Two out of my four grandparents were born in Poland, another was a first generation American born to two Polish immigrants, and my fourth grandparent is half Polish (half French!). We’re all Catholic.
We take Fat Tuesday verrrrrrry seriously ;)
(Except for me today because I am quite paczki-less. Although I’ll take eating an entire sleeve of grahm crackers as a substitute).
Happy Shrove Tuesday, Lovies!
Snow Day get-it-together Day
I feel quite spoiled with snow days this year. Unlike my first year of teaching when I was all alone in the middle of nowhere, they haven’t been driving me mad with a lack of things to do. Maybe I was more organized and put together when I was on my own, but that’s no matter. Today means extra sleep, the opportunity to watch the Academy Awards last night, a clean apartment, perfected lesson plans, a warm dinner, painted nails, and catching up on 75892738462370209302858327984029457823497 yearbook things that I’ve been behind on (WAY behind on—running Yearbook as a club with 0 accountability is nearly impossible).
And with Ash Wednesday and Lent right around the corner, it’s an opportunity to reflect. To pause. To think. Sometimes I believe that working at a Catholic school is making me a lazier Catholic and sometimes I think that is making me a lazier person.
So time to knock out the lazy like, completely. Time to knock out the ‘its too late’s or the ‘I’m too tired’s or the ‘I don’t feel like it’s. It’s time to get up, get moving, and get going.
Well, maybe tomorrow since the drive is like, treacherous ;)
