When I say that I've been busy lately, I'm downplaying things...
I have been running nonstop for the last few weeks. I work all day, bring it home, work all night, then try to squeeze in as much TPT or blogging that I can do. I've been lousy, which is why I haven't gotten to do my Day in the Life linky since August!!
This month, I'm going to do something a little different.
Please link up and feel free to put your own spin on it! You can do a normal day or a special day.
..... ON FALL BREAK!!
Friday, October 12th and Monday, October 14th are glorious days for teachers. It's our first real break/breather since the first day of school. Some schools get a full week, while some teachers get zero days, so I'm happy with my 4-day weekend.
On my 4-day weekend, I took a trip up to Pittsburgh with my boyfriend.
It was so nice to get out of town and just relax for the weekend.
The only time that I 'worked' is on the car ride, when I graded papers and worked on paperwork!! I was so proud of myself.
Check out this unusual day in the life of a teacher
(well, two days I should say...)
Grading papers while riding through our pretty county in the fall.
Picture doesn't do it justice.... it was gorgeous!
First stop: Andy Warhol Museum.
We weren't allowed to take pictures in there, so this is the only picture I snapped.
Me and Andy...
Second trip: Primanti Brothers
I saw this restaurant on a TV show and Mitch's friends all told him about this place, so we had to try it out. They pile your sandwich so high that it is almost impossible to eat. And yes, those are french fries stacked on my sandwich, too.
Third trip: Night Visit to the Phipps Conservatory
If your conservatory around your town is open at night, you have to check it out.
The plants aren't as colorful and bright and the butterflies are sleeping, but the lights are incredible.
Definitely an experience I will always remember.
Day 2- First stop: Duquesne Incline
We rode an old street car up an incline for a beautiful view of downtown Pittsburgh. The weather was perfect.
Last stop: Natural History Museum
This was a great visit, but it was cut short because we were on our way to a cookout with some of Mitch's college friends. We got to see all the dinosaur exhibit, though, which was unreal.
On the road again....
Back to working on grading papers!
And when I got home....
I unpacked and got to work on my latest October On-the-Go pack.
