Week in Review – February 27, 2011

This past week was what I call February break, it certainly was not a vacation. It started off being sick with a respiratory infection and feeling like crap pretty much until Wednesday, then two days of training learning about iWork and iLife ’09, which I enjoyed, but still I wasn’t completely recovered from being sick.

I would get home crash until supper, try to write my professional development reflection blogs and then be back asleep in my chair off and on, for the rest of the night. I did get the reflections done, but not always the same night.

Friday was a snow day, but I couldn’t focus, felt extremely tired and did a lot of napping in between Bennie walks. Saturday was cleaning up, raking snow off the roof and trying to get the snow blower after the belts blew up, on the back of the truck and to repair shop before it closed at noon.

Then I spent the rest of the afternoon napping with Bennie in my lap. So even though I wasn’t working, I was still doing a lot of recovering from the infection I had started this break with. Whatever it was kicked my butt and I am glad that I had the week to recover from it, it would have been a miserable week if there had been school last week.

What are my top five blog post from last week according to page views?

  1. Evernote as a Task Manager – Feb 19, 2011
  2. NOOK COLOR – REVIEW JANUARY 2011 – Jan 9, 2011
  3. Evernote Review – January 2011 – Jan 27, 2011
  4. iWork Professional Development February 2011 – Keynote – Feb 23, 2011
  5. iWork Professional Development February 2011 – Pages – Feb 23, 2011

This is one of the few weeks that my Paper AirplaneLesson Plan hasn’t made my top 5 for the week. It seems a lot of people are interested in how others are using Evernote (a tool that I am finding more and more uses for as I go along) and the Nook Color.

So here is getting to work today getting caught up on all the stuff on my list that didn’t get done this past week. Hopefully, it won’t take too long to finish up an IEP, correct student work, enter it into the gradebook, plan for next week and squeeze in a long Bennie walk. Looks like a busy day, hopefully I have the stamina to get it all done, otherwise I will do what I can, fall asleep and keep plugging away.

I really need another week just to finish recovering, but tomorrow, we are back at it again, so onward and upward we go! 🙂
