What a wonderful day.
I got to have lunch out today at work. This is the second year our principal has allowed the teachers a day to go out to lunch, and she finds coverage for our class for an hour. Today my team got to go, and we enjoyed a quick but wonderful lunch away at Baker's Crust. It's amazing how nice it is to get away for a full hour. If only we could do that everyday! Sadly, I'll continue to scarf down my lunch in my allotted twenty six minutes each day.
After coming back to school, I just had the best afternoon. I try not to blog too much about the specifics of my job on here, but I will say that a lot of hard work is paying off in many areas, and it just feels wonderful. I love being noticed for my effort, and even more, I love seeing my hard work pay off in the students.
So life is good. I whine so much about my job, but today was really a good one.
Oh, and did I mention that I tried a new recipe for dinner? Tonight was Cilantro Lime Shrimp served over brown rice and these fabulous Cuban black beans from Trader Joe's.
If I had thought of it, I would have taken a picture of the shrimp, but you'll just have to trust me. This is a meal worth making! And it's fairly healthy.
Here's hoping that my last three days before spring break go as smoothly as today did.
