What are you looking forward to this week? What are you not looking forward to?

Looking Forward to:

*Spending time with my class and getting further into a routine and good habits (we're really making progress).

*Doing fun things after school to treat myself (napping, reading, tv, going for a walk, etc.)

*Not having any plans for the weekend...I know it will be fun and relaxing.

*That Friday night feeling when I'm free! lol

Not Looking Forward to:
*Staff Meeting this week
