Weekly Wisdom (Formerly Monday Motivation)

by - February 05, 2023

Happy Sunday, friends! I know I typically don't share our weekly words of wisdom until Monday, but since becoming a teacher that is the one post that I just have not found a good routine for. Confession: I always write the post on Sunday, schedule it for early Monday morning, and then try to remember to share it to social at some point during the day. Most days, it's lunch time at the earliest before that happens with some days being late afternoon or me forgetting altogether.

Since I'm already writing the post early anyway, the logical solution is to rebrand from Monday Motivation to Weekly Wisdom and publish on Sundays. This also gives me the perfect excuse reason to start scheduling a Sunday newsletter, which will help me to establish a better routine with my email list (and hopefully grow it some more!). On that note, if you haven't joined my email list, you can do that here.

This past week was a pretty good one. I took a day off to get some real-life things taken care of (new tag, driver's license renewal, etc.). I added a haircut into that day, as well, and decided to chop off my shag for a blunt bob. So far I'm loving it.

Unfortunately, we ended up taking Alexis to the doctor on Thursday for a croaky cough, red eyes, and some congestion. All the tests came back negative, but the doctor did heard some wheezing when he listened to her breathing, so we've been dealing with that for the past several days. The medicine he prescribed seems to be finally making some headway, so hopefully she'll be back to normal in a day or two.

Looking ahead to this week, I'm not sure what to expect. We're still reading Restart by Gordon Korman, I've got an informational text that pairs with the book, and we'll be starting a new writing project that's tied in with that. The only other thing we've got going on is continuing to work with clauses, specifically adverbs, but I'm trying to tie that into their writing as much as I can. Oh, and progress reports go out this week, so I'll be spending all my free time on Monday making sure my grades are good to go.

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I'm working on a outfit inspiration post based on some things I've recently added to my own wardrobe and a romance-themed book recommendation post. I'll also have another Real Outfit Roundup post soon, and I've been working on a 'teaching so far' post for the past several weeks that should be ready next week maybe. I'm working on getting back into my regular book post rotations with TBR and currently reading posts, and I have plans to start back with the monthly favorite product posts.

I think eventually I'll do more school-related content, but at this point I feel like I haven't been teaching long enough to have any type of credibility, outside of sharing products, etc. that work for me.

Anyway, I think that's it for this week. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a wonderful week ahead!
