It did end up to be a pretty good day yesterday as we ended the evening with family movie night. Stayed up past my usual bed time and still woke up pretty early this morning. I must have been thinking about all of the little things that I need to do this weekend as it seems like a mountain right now, but something I can conquer.
I have a 5 day field trip with 30 students starting on Wednesday which I am both kind of excited and dreading. This is going to be one of those great experiences for the kids, but chaperoning 24/7 will be exhausting. Another 3 days out of my classroom means a ton of additional planning for those students, making sure the work is not busy-work, but truly meaningful and then a lot of grading when I return. But all of those things do not worry me as much as eating out for 5 days and the choices I will need to make. I am going to need to be strong on this. The hotel we are staying at has a mini-fridge in the rooms so I can keep a supply of HWC for my morning coffee which btw, I think I will need ample of since I already know that my sleep will suck. The key will be planning and constant reminders of good choices.
