30 Days of Giving: Day 6

30-Day Giving Challenge

Today we went to Buffalo Wild Wings (with a coupon of course) before we went to my students' play. We had a nice waitress who seemed very "momish". Come to find out she had four children. I decided to write her an encouraging note on the receipt. Hopefully it lifted her day!

30 Days of Giving: Day 5

30-Day Giving Challenge

On Fridays everyone just wants to get out of the school. I had just put in a large number of copies into the copy machine at the end of the day. Another teacher came in and I suggested that she interrupt my copies and put hers in. I feel bad because it wasn't much, but I figure that it is the little things that count!

30 Day Giving Challenge: Day 4

30-Day Giving Challenge

Today I went to a bridal shower and of course brought a gift. I felt a bit silly because I bought a gift that was fairly practical off of their registry and a lot of the other ladies bought games and the like, but oh well. Marriage isn't all fun and games and occasionally you do need to open a can :).

30 Day Giving Challenge: Day 3

30-Day Giving Challenge

Today is Day 3 of the thirty day giving challenge. We are 10% of the way done! Today I gave some of my time (ok lets be honest, probably too much of my time) to a struggling student who is a senior. This is where I am torn. One of the things I struggle with most is letting my job as a teacher overtake my marriage. My husband's love language is time, and so when I give time to students I feel that I am taking it away from him. I also gave some of my time (luckily I was driving-although that is probably not the safest) to help my younger brother with his college math.

I would like to expound more, but since I have already explained that my poor husband doesn't get that much time with me, I think I am going to go hang out with him a bit.

30 Day Giving Challenge- Day 2

30-Day Giving Challenge

Seeing as today was day 2 in the challenge I was already trying to figure out what I was going to do to "give" for the day. I didn't figure that "giving" my opinion at the polls would count ;). Late in the day I had one of my old students stop by with a fundraisor. Although I am not a huge fan of fundraisors (I would rather just write a check for a certain amount and not be worried about picking out random fundraisor items), I decided that since it was November I would give in and buy a "cookie card" that allows me to go online and order 3lbs of cookie dough and supposedly gets me discounts. I was glad that I donated because my old students face just lit up. Who knows, maybe I will actually use that cookie dough over the holidays?

30 Days of Giving: Day 1

30-Day Giving Challenge
Today is the first day of November which means that it is the beginning of the 30 Day Giving Challenge. I've decided that I am going to do my best to participate, even if my posts are not all that elaborate.  Today I've decided to give a nice back scratch/rub to my husband.  Poor guy, he doesn't get much attention during the school year.  I would suggest you go and check out the challenge today.
