march currently...

I am listening to a mix I called "Over the Rainbow".  Mellow songs given to me by a friend :)

I am loving the fact that I had an eye doctor's appointment.  We're discussing LASIK.
Plus I got to order new glasses....who doesn't love a new look?!

I am thinking about how I can make tomorrow better.  My students stretch me daily.
Most of the time I don't know how to handle their very autistic banter.
Nor do I quite know what to do with my student who is refusing to write anything....ugh?!

I am wanting to relax.  You know, massage, long bath, someone make dinner for me,
have an already clean house, quite time alone....that kind of relax.

I am needing to hold a baby.  My sister-in-law is pregnant with her first and a few
other people I know have had/are having babies recently.  While husband man and I
aren't there yet, I go through these periods when I just want to sit and rock a baby.
There is something that happens, I think it's "world stopping" and it gives me perspective.
Reminds me of the important things, you know?

My first name is Meghan.  So my like, love, and hate had to start with "M".  I like making food,
baking or cooking.  I love mellow music.  I am a bit of a music snob in that I am pretty picky
about the style of music I listen to when, but it makes me feel alive.  I hate Mondays.  Not because
I have to start another week at work, but usually with my students it is their worst day.  Every
Monday, I have to undo the weekend routine and reinstate the school routine.
They just end up feeling like terribly long days :)

  1. I hear you about needing to hold a baby! Sometimes you just gotta get your fix right! :) My husband and I aren't there yet either... but I'm getting a lot closer... and quickly!

    1. It is a wonderful fix!! Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. Mondays are not my fave either, but I think I actually like them more than Sunday nights when the mad dash to get prepared for the week happens!

    1. I agree....that Sunday night mad dash is a lovely rush!!! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I had that same problem last year. Student refusing to write! He was autistic. We came up with a plan. I wrote 2 sentences, he wrote one. Then we moved it to I write 1, he writes 1.. then I write 1, he writes 2.. sometimes he liked to just type on the computer rather than hand writing. Sometimes they just have so many ideas floating around in their head that it's frustrating to transfer it from their head to the process of writing it on the paper. Try having them speak their paper/writing into some kind of technology.. IPAD, IPOD, Computer (VoiceThread). Hope this gives you a few ideas! :)


    1. Ashley!! Thanks so much for sharing your story! I had honestly not thought about sharing the sentence writing with him. I will start sharing next week, I love that idea!! I have an iPad that I have started to use Evernote with him...I'm trying to introduce it as a reward for following my directions; it's a frustrating task! Thanks for the help and for stopping by!
