Is it really already the 2nd week of September? It’s the beginning of the school year for everyone and by now all the kids are back to school. Back 2 School Nights are in full swing.. but MULTIPLE nights? *sigh*
Last week I attended a special presentation for student athletes at my son’s school. This was actually a very informative session and I was impressed. They had a local news sports anchor attend and give a presentation on social media and image. This made me smile because while my son isn’t a social media fanatic.. I know several kids who are. The kids weren’t truly paying attention until it was discussed about someone who they knew LOST their athletic scholarship because of how they conducted themselves on social media. When you THINK nobody is watching.. EVERYONE is.
This week there is an IB Back 2 School night just for IB students. I get it.. it’s a lot of information.. but couldn’t we coordinate these a little better? Maybe I’m just being bitter but my time is valuable as is my son’s education. There should be a BETTER way to communicate upcoming meetings & any FEES associated with the programs. This was one of the main reasons why I joined the parental advisory council. Administrators don’t realize that they have to disseminate information in several forms because all parents don’t receive the information the same way.
Next Monday is the “normal” back to school night for his school.. I am thinking I MAY skip that.. but more than likely will just move my dental appointment instead. ha!
Death is always upon us.. and so many my age and younger are being stricken and taken by various forms of cancer. This scares me.. especially when it hits so close to home with family, friends and childhood friends you have known your entire life. CANCER SUCKS and FVCK CANCER ok I got that out
The #30layers30days challenge while I haven’t shared but the initial post on the blog.. I’ve been writing in my journal the entire challenge. Some of the topics are a little personal and as I write my thoughts about them I realize I’m not totally ready to share them here but this challenge has been truly eye opening for me. So far nothing has been totally uncomfortable.. but I have been um challenged to truly express my thoughts but it has provided me with a way to approach the topic with those I need to discuss certain things with so I’ll just leave it at that.
My friends that were older than me joked when you turn 40 things are just different with your body.. Ummm I hate being a woman who is over 40 LOL like seriously.. is there a switch that just goes off and tells the body to act a fool? I’m thankful for a team of doctors who aren’t afraid to laugh with you thru everything and provide you with the support you need to keep your mind young even though your body is telling you that you are “old”. At least all of my issues are “fixable” lol Lifestyle changes are even more important now and I’m incorporating a few more which are definitely making a difference.
Running is going well.. training is going well…can’t believe I will be racing on sunday.. 1 year later to the date when I suffered what I thought would be a career ending injury with an Achilles tear.. again a team of doctors who are on my side who made it happen… God’s plan, their hands, my determination and look how far we have come.. #blessed #thankful
I dropped the ball on offering a fitness challenge for September.. instead I joined a few different ones to support my friends on their journey to a healthier life. I’m looking forward to reviewing a new app “The Fitness Games” stay tuned…
Hope your Monday isn’t as Manic as mine.. Have a great one!
Share and Enjoy
