This morning, we got up around 8:30am. I went to Starbucks and got us two cold brews. He texted me on my way home, that his friend Brent who cuts his hair, asked if he could come this morning at 10am for a trim. We did have plans to go to the pool, so as I said, as long as you are back by 11:30am. When I got home, I handed him his coffee, and kissed him. He was out the door.
I got my swim suit on and a pair of shorts with my Britney Spears t-shirt.
Then sat down to read my book for this week’s discussion. This book is titled, Seeking Common Ground Public Schools in a Diverse Society by David Tyack. Tyack references the treatment of women and institutional minoritized students. The history was familiar from last fall, when I took Politics and History of Higher Education. I did find the history of the textbook interesting as well as the common historical figures that students seem to be familiar with, which includes more men, than women. I finished the book before we went to the pool. I want to let my thoughts marinate before I post them in the discussion board.
When we arrived at the pool, we met up with Anthony. He lost 70 pounds. He looks like a shadow of his former self. He and I laid out and took pictures. We gossiped about the latest drama. Sometimes I feel bad for my husband, because when Anthony and I get together we talk and talk and it isn’t always stuff my husband wants to hear.
We stayed at the pool until 2:30pm or 3pm, then we went and got Mexican food at Plaza Azteca. We made plans for fireworks with Anthony on July 4th. We were going to be at my parents that day and they live close to downtown, so we were going to be the neighborhood anyway.
When we got home, I got a shower and passed out on the couch until about 6pm. Drew went and did grocery shopping, I woke up and put some laundry in and then sat down to do my discussion post, while he replaced the blinds in our kitchen window.
Goals for the week
- touch base with my friend from the radio station to pick up my Shinedown tickets for 7/10
- finish my paper for assignment 1 that is due on 7/8 so I don’t have to do any homework over July 4th weekend
- Perhaps start reading my next book titled, The Global achievement gap: Why even our best schools don’t teach
the new survival skills our children need- and what we can do about it. by Wagner
- Gym it up Monday and Wednesday
- Make it through 3 days at work, then it is a four day weekend!
