No grading, no planning, and no obsessing over the little things bothering me about my classroom. I just put my head to the pillow and slipped into sweet, sweet, reasonably early sleep.
This morning, I even had a full breakfast. Then I got a little crazy and threw in a multivitamin. It's amazing the difference it has made.
I walked into school and ran into a few of my students. Instead of getting the begrudging hand wave and forced smile, they got the full on hello this morning. In class we had a discussion over a documentary and instead of rushing them through it because I was tired and wanted to get to the "independent practice" part of the lesson, I enjoyed every second of it. I didn't just enjoy the parts that I was part of, I enjoyed just listening and watching the activity.
Days like today are days where I love teaching. I need more of them. Looks like that is well within my power to create if I just shut it down and take myself to bed every once in a while.
