I felt I was burning out, and that's when the idea hit me. Friday. Block it. Kids still go to school, Magnum still goes to work. I have a day of dumbness all to myself.
The private teaching company I used to work for never scheduled classes on Fridays. Now I know why. That plus my formative years in Monday-thru-Friday public school has programmed me to slack on Fridays. If it's a psychological quirk, so be it. I give in.
It's not to say I don't do anything teacher related, but I don't have to actually face anyone while I do it, so I can do it with a dumb face and in comfy dumb clothing.
Dumb Fridays, as I affectionately know them, are not necessarily epic. I get caught up on the housewifery, paperwork, maybe go coffeeing with a friend. Sounds a bit boring maybe, but they're lovely, really.
It's cold today. Snow nearby. Froze at the crosswalk this morning, but it was good mindless freezing. Have you done anything stupid today? I highly recommend it.
