It was finally warm today! So sunny and pleasant, it completely made my day. In fact, when we were just 30 minutes from the end of school – I forced my 3rd graders to go outside for extra recess, just so I could enjoy walking some laps around the soccer field in the sunshine.
My appetite is still wonky.
Biggest meal of the day – kashi honey sunshine, oats, almonds, milk
I packed a lunch, but then discovered there was Mexican food in the teacher’s lounge (happy cinco de mayo!) – and made myself this plate.
However, one bite into this and I gagged. Some ingredient somewhere on this plate tasted like dish soap, and I had to immediately throw it away for fear of throwing up. Then I washed out the soapy taste out with about five servings of fruit.
When I got home, I went for a walk – just to enjoy the last drops of sunshine (and possibly coax little Baby Cakes into the world). The afternoon was so gorgeous that I felt euphoric. Summer is juuussst around the corner.
Dinner was light because I wasn’t hungry in the slightest – but knew I needed to fuel myself with something.

In the 3rd grade world…
Remember my ex-Chinese student from last year? She was in my room using one of my classroom computers this afternoon, when she volunteered this little tidbit…
Mrs. Unger – did you know that when I was born, my head was too fat to fit through my mom’s bottom, so they had to slice her up to get me out?
No, I didn’t know that. Aaaand I miss you and your misunderstandings. I’m sure my readers do, too.
