Yes, I know it is Saturday. But that is because my favorite thing I did this Friday was SLEEP! I have been averaging about 3 to 4 hours of sleep every night this week. For a solid week, I have been going to bed by 11pm, but I have been waking up at 3am or 4am and cannot fall back to sleep. After an exhausting first week, I came home and tried to go to sleep immediately. Unfortunately, my husband needed me to run an errand with him, so I didn’t make it to my bed until 7:30 pm. Then, I slept straight through until 8am this morning. I feel like a different person today. I FEEL HUMAN.
My other favorite thing this week was freezer meal lunches. Thank you so much to my beloved @cheesemonkeysf for this idea. For the last month I have been putting yummy dinner leftovers into plastic containers or freezer ziplock bags and storing them in the freezer. In the morning I just grab a container and go. At lunch, I have a wonderful, hot, filling, delicious, home made meal. When you are running on 3 hours of sleep a night, there is nothing better than a yummy lunch that you DON’T have to prepare in the hectic am rush to get to school. We almost never eat all of our leftovers so this is a win win!
Have a great first few weeks to all of the wonderful teachers out there! 🙂
