Wow! Time has just flown by! I bet some of you have been wondering where i’ve been and so I thought what better way to ease back into the online world, than to link up with the lovely Farley for her final “Currently” post.
Tomorrow I have yet another doctor’s appointment (i’ve seriously felt like a human pin cushion lately) so i’m currently writing my substitute lesson plans and listening to one of my favourite bands – Walk off the Earth. Yes, they are Canadian and they are awesome! Walk off the Earth produces both amazing covers on Youtube and have also produced their own music. I also love acoustic versions of songs when i’m trying to work, so there’s a mix of other Youtubers in my playlist too.
For those of you who have been wondering where i’ve been, pregnancy has kind of taken the wind out of my sails. The first trimester was extremely exhausting and I was on preventative leave for almost 7 weeks. This meant I was still doing all of the planning and marking for work, but was not able to step foot in the school until I knew I was immune to a number of diseases. This is where my “truth” comes into play because truth be told, I have been MIA because i’ve been exhausted! Please forgive me – i’m starting to get my energy back now (thankfully) so I promise I not abandon ship for that long again 🙂
Although i’m back in the classroom, and i’ve loved being back with my kids, the stress of exams have also taken their toll. We start a 5-6 week period of government mandated exams next week so right now it’s honestly cram mode. I’ve only been back for 3 weeks so I definitely wish I had more time to prep my students 🙁
In regards the pregnancy, my biggest cravings to date have been peanut butter, strawberries, ice cream and anything sweet. My usual savoury tooth now gags at the thought of anything too salty… which is a bit sad and very weird for me lol. I started taking belly pics last week at 16 weeks and will start sharing them on Instagram. I’m hesitant to share a lot of pregnancy stuff on my blog because most people come here for teaching or ed-tech related stuff. What do you think? Is it ok to blur those lines on a blog like this?
