High +/or Five + For + Friday

My first week back to work after my brief summer hiatus didn't make me as bitter as I thought it was going to be. Curriculum writing isn't exactly physically exhausting, but mentally taxing with all of the nitpicking and over analyzing. One more week and I'm a free woman once again!

Here's my week of good things!

Doing yoga at home with my two free-willed chihuahuas could've been frustrating, but I was so busy cracking up at their stellar interruption skills I didn't even worry about it. I think I will stick to going to the gym instead.

I discovered the blog, All Things Thrifty. It makes my heart go pitter-patter. I have so many projects swirling through my head that I can't wait to tackle!

It's hot out here! Holy cow, by now I should really be used to this since I have lived in Arizona for quite a while now, but geez it's supposed to be 111 degrees tomorrow! Yowza! I am thankful for a working AC unit that hasn't gone kaput (yet...)

Speaking of the heat, I ordered a new hat from KBJ's Monogram on Etsy that I had been eyeing on Pinterest for a while. I'm excited and want it to get here so soon!

The power of reframing undesirable situations always amazes me. It's a way to see something or someone from a different perspective and I try to remember to do that whenever I get frustrated. This has saved me this week in more ways than one.

Don't forget to link up!


 Have a good weekend!


  1. Heather, we must work in the same district, as I am writing curriculum too this week and next, only I am working on Social Studies. Where do you teach?

    1. I teach in Peoria USD. That would be a small world if we worked in the same district! How fun! I'm doing math curriculum writing.

    2. I'm in PUSD too - Desert Valley. What school are you at?

    3. Lake Pleasant now, but I was at Country Meadows for 5 years.

    4. I taught at CM for 4 years, 7th grade for a year, then 3 years in 3rd.
      Are you Heather Crenshaw?

    5. Nope :) but she was there my first year at CM! I think my first year was 2007.

  2. Hey Heather! I found you on H54F! :) I can definitely relate to you when it comes to heat. I live in Las Vegas...boy is it HOT right now. Yowzwa is right!
