The Best Part of the Day (SOL Day 20)

Today's slice describes the best thing about today and the worst thing about today.  Even with a bad day we can finds something good, if we look hard enough.

The worst thing about today:
Yesterday, I wrote about a very challenging day.  I hate to say that it didn't end there.  I got four hours of sleep last night because I had a number of things to do before going to bed.  This morning I got up at 5:00 a.m. and after getting dressed and eating breakfast, I drove for an hour in horrible traffic and a congested parking situation to attend a conference.  I was so tired I could barely see straight.

The best thing about today:
Attending the MACUL Technology Conference was one of the highlights of my day.  I was exposed to some of the most innovative ways to use technology in the classroom.  My head is still spinning with all the things that I learned and want to incorporate before the school year ends.  To top off this great day of learning, I had the pleasure of meeting three of my Twitter friends face to face.  These are teachers I chat with on Sunday nights during #1stchat.  It was so much fun meeting them in person.  I feel like I've known these ladies for years, even though we've never met in person until today.  It was smiles and hugs and stories.  This was truly the best thing about today.

  1. Good advice ..., find something in the day that is good! Glad you found it!

    1. It's amazing how exhaustion can impact your day. I'm so glad it didn't get the best of me and I was able to enjoy all to good things that happened.

  2. What a wonderful day of meeting friends. I have met SOL friends in person and feel close to them throughout the year via technology. Inspiring. Enjoy your weekend. Hopefully your stress will pass.

    1. It was the best! I still can't believe it really happened. BTW, I met Becky at a conference with Donalyn Miller a few weeks ago. It was also our first face to face. I even took a picture with the two of them. Love, love, love the connections.
