I decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
The end of the school year is just flying by. I have less than 30 work days left, and I couldn’t be happier. I’m still trying to transfer to another school, but I found out on Friday that I got my wish to switch to 4th grade next school year. I’ve never taught 4th before, but I think my experience as a 5th-grade teacher will be an added bonus, as I know what the students need to know going into the final year. I’m also excited as my European trip looms closer and closer.
Aside from work, I spent the week watching my Ebay listing. In the end, a scammer won the auction for my iPhone. I knew he was one since he joined the same day, and over bid for my phone. Now I have to relist my device. What sucks is that I had a real buyer interested in it, before the scammer outbid him 🙁 On the positive side, I was able to realize the scam before I mailed out my iPhone, and contacted Ebay to inform them of the situation.
Saturday I participated in Dewey’s 24-hour Read-a-thon. I decided to play it smart this time around and drank plenty of water. I also didn’t eat a lot of junk and drink tons of caffeinated beverages. I ate regular meals and took frequent breaks. Of course, there was snacks and coffee, but I didn’t overdo it.
