I survived another first day of school. It was relatively uneventful. I pulled textbooks, moved things around the library, and worked on some Scrabble class lesson plans. Matt brought me lunch today and helped me with some library stuff. My Scrabble class went well. I gave them a quiz to see how much they remembered about the rules and we did some practice scoring. I then started them working on memorizing their two letter words. I even assigned homework. I guess I’m a pretty tough teacher to assign homework on the first day.
I got home around 5:00 and forced myself to start my 5K training program. I’m following the Biggest Loser plan with a few tweaks since I have 15 weeks until the event rather than 10.
Lucy seems to be doing well in spite of her splint. She is handling it well. She doesn’t seem to mind being in my closet. The vet said she needed to be in a confined area without furniture that she could climb on. I take her back on Friday to have her splint redone.
Matt and I went to a fancy restaurant for dinner last night. It was a high dollar steakhouse. I ordered my steak medium well because I like it hot throughout with just a touch of pink. The steak I got was much more medium – it had a cool dark pink center. I had to send it back and wait another 10 minutes to eat. Matt was almost finished by the time I got my steak back. They at least offered us a free dessert. I was more impressed by the place that we went to in Buffalo.
