It's Teacher Appreciation Week!!

First off, don't forget to linkup with me tomorrow for Thirsty Thursday!! Just post a cocktail recipe, good beer, or delicious wine and grab a button from my sidebar. Then come back over here and add your link!!

OK, so back to this post....

I'm a teacher. I teach technology to kids from Kindergarten to fifth grade.

I LOVE it, but I also hate it, but I love it. :) It really depends on the class and the day. Some days can be awesome and some days can be brutal. But, I only have each class for 45 minutes so I can ditch those bratty difficult ones for a whole week after that.

This week is Teacher Appreciate Week.

Let me start by saying that I am very appreciative of everything that is provided for us during Teacher Appreciation week. Our PTA does a great job of providing us with luncheons and gifts. This week we have something special every day.

I do have one quick complaint, however.

It's all unhealthy!!! That doesn't help my horrible self-control!!

Yesterday the PTA provided us with a CANDY BAR!! Not like a Milky Way candy bar...a whole table full of various kinds of candy. And I'm not talking snack size...FULL SIZE CANDY BARS!! With bags to fill up!!

I may just be the cheapest person you will ever meet. So when I see an entire table full of free shiz in front of me, panic!! Sad part is, I really don't even eat candy.'s free...and it's

I brought home a pack of M&M's for Mike and grabbed a Milky Way for myself. Then, a couple fun size Snickers. I did eat both the Snickers but the Milky Way is still in tact.

Not bad, right!! I made it!! AND...the Teacher's Lounge is right next to my room, so it would have been so easy to sneak over there.

But...I held my ground and made it through...

...until today...


I guess we didn't eat enough of it. And this time there were Skittles. Skittles just may be my weakness. So, I vowed to only take a little spoonful. And then when that was gone, I took another. Then it was lunchtime so I took another.

And finally...

I grabbed a bag...

Tomorrow we have a baked potato bar. I'll let you know how that one goes...

And on that note, I'll leave you with last night's post workout fail...

...I should probably just stop opening the fridge...

  1. Our PTA did the same! Very very nice... very very bad for my expanding waistline. Hey- did I spy you at Common Ground in Baltimore a few weeks back?
