My Week in Review: I survived.

We survived the first week back to school and it felt like the 800th day. We normally start school on a Wednesday or a Thursday, but this year we started on a Monday. We will also end on a Monday in May but that's a whole other story. 

This Monday start made for one very long and very tiring week. 😴😴😴

I'm so glad it's over though. While I love the kids and the tech teaching and the fun to be had, I hate the logistics of the first week. All the procedures and the routines and the paperwork and the sign ups - it's all so much at once. 

My week started off the same as always. With meal prep. On the menu: Chicken Gyro bowls, Sloppy Joes, Ranch Pork Chops, and Chicken Wings! 

I'm on the Plan A of Ultimate Portion Fix. I know I'm doing 80 Day Obsession and Autumn recommends doing Timed Nutrition, but with school starting I really need my Treat swaps for wine!! 

Everything was yummy!! 

We also stopped by Sweet Society and had some Dole whip with Taiyaki. 

Back to school deserves a treat!

First day back, though, I was greeted by several obstacles to my office. 

And THEN the Internet goes out. Completely in the gym/auditorium and cafeteria. Since my office is behind the stage, my desktop is entirely useless. Can't print, can't access anything. They gave us hotspots in the meantime but that's only useful for very limited work on the Chromebooks. Super fun. No clue when it will be fixed 😩😫

Also kept up with the exercises for 80 Day Obsession!

I could have gone a little heavier with my weights this week but I'm exhausted. 

And finally on Friday it was 80s day to celebrate Club Fair! 

I channeled my inner Robin Sparkles and if it hadn't been for the humidity, my bangs would've been sky high all day. This is the face I make when I'm completely enervated. 

But I did manage to create some adorable gift tags for a friend of mine. These will work great as a back to school gift for teachers. 

I've made these before as Christmas gifts (see the picture; my friend hasn't made her gifts yet because they don't start for another week!!!), but I thought using them for the start of school would be even better. You'll be making 3-2-1 cake. All you do is grab two cake mixes: one has to be Angel food cake but the other can be any flavor you like. I like Red Velvet!

Mix the two together and put in a jar of some kind. Screw the lid on and tie a ribbon on. Maybe slip on a Tablespoon for measuring the cake mix. 

Basically the gift receiver will mix 3 tablespoons of cake mix with 2 tablespoons water, and microwave for 1 minute. 

You can grab a free copy of these gift tags HERE
