Good afternoon Rewinders! This week has been hectic but in a good way. I’m definitely thankful for my work friends and my kiddos this week. They have (even if they don’t realize it) given me ample validation that teaching is, in fact, my calling and that I am, in fact, relatively good at it.
If we work our way backwards, today (Sunday) has been all about the writing side of things. The Twitter Chat was about distractions, and thus it was also the theme for my weekly #ThinkBIGSundaywithMartha post.

There is just something about New Year’s that gets the blood pumping and the brain working overtime on new ideas. We make these resolutions (that we rarely keep, but that doesn’t stop us, does it?), and we determine to do something new, or to restart something not so new, and all because the days on a calendar suddenly change.
It’s strange if you really think about it. Time doesn’t exactly exist. I mean, most animals don’t recognize a watch or clock, and definitely not a calendar, but anyone who has pets knows that they can become very aware of the time if you feed them at exactly the same time every day. Even though they can’t read a clock, they can sense that it’s dinner time, and they’ll let you know about it if you “forget!” Continue reading “The Time for Beginnings”
If we were chit chatting over coffee today, we’d be sitting in a very busy IHOP waiting for my waitress to come take my order. She asked me if I needed to look at the menu for a minute… nearly 10 minutes ago. Not cool.
But, in the meantime, I’d tell you that I feel excited about 2017. I am very convinced that it is nearly impossible for any year to be as tumultuous as 2016 was for me.

So you just missed #JustAddTea. It was a good one.
I know I’m doing this a little backwards, but I didn’t have time to post before. I didn’t leave the school until 7:45… Only giving me 15 minutes to race to my diner for #JustAddTea on Twitter tonight.
I guess it’s safe to say I’m not quite back on schedule yet.
I want to thank some of my fellow #Iggles for joining me as we discussed Beauty and a mini side discussion on Disney princesses…. which led to me deciding that next week our #JustAddTea will be ALL about Disney stuff. An all things Disney #Just AddTea. Continue reading “Just checking in…”
I just realized it’s been exactly 2 weeks since my last post. So much for my routine…
Although, I have decided that me not having time to write isn’t exactly a bad thing. I’ve been very focused on work, more focused on work than I have been in years, and I can tell a difference in my lessons, in the atmosphere in my classroom, and already in my relationships with my kiddos.
I feel that invincible sensation of a First Year Teacher.

I’m still not quite back on my normal schedule yet… Or else this would have posted about 4 hours ago. However, we will have our weekly Twitter chat this week, where we’ll be talking about Money!!
You know, that stuff that makes the world go round, as they say.
Continue reading “Tonight on #JustAddTea: Money!”
Last week I had to cancel our weekly Twitter Chat so I could see an advanced screening of the movie Nerve, and while I missed talking to everyone, it was a movie that is definitely worth it. Even though the movie doesn’t come out officially for another week, I saw that there are several places around Houston already showing movie times, so expect my review to post shortly. Like, maybe later today or tomorrow at the latest.
In the meantime though, our virtual tea party is back on for tonight! Continue reading “Tonight on #JustAddTea: The Future!”
