The Pit and the Peak

One of my favorite celebrity families to watch {guilty pleasure if you will} is none other than the Kardashian Klan {with a K no less}. Don’t judge!  I can’t even tell you how many times my husband will roll his eyes as I laugh hysterically at all of their craziness…but I just can’t help it! I LOVE THEM! But not in one of those creepy/crazy fan/stalker{ish} kind of ways! I just think they are way TOO MUCH!

 KAnother little confession: Scott is my favorite! Oh my word…he ALWAYS has something to say and it just never ceases to crack me up! 

So..I know you are asking…what on earth do the Kardashians have to do with school/teaching/activities for the week?!? Well…absolutely nothing! But follow me here and I may be able to make some sort of connection.

Although their show is purely for desperate entertainment seekers entertainment purposes, they do a little something that I kinda like!  When they were younger, every night, the family would share the pit and the peak of their day. The high point and the low point. I think it is always nice to do a little reflection and I have definitely had some time to reflect this week {you’ll see why in a minute}…so here is my pit and peak of the week!

My pit of the week is the fact that I have been sitting at home for four days and NO…it is not spring break yet…and no…it was not my choice! {This is why I NEVER go to the doctor! Ha!} I have missed more days in just this one week than in my entire teaching career. {I am one of those…sub plan making haters…I would rather just go than to write sub plans!} Well, to make a LONG, LONG story short…this girl has always thought that living on 3 or 4 hours of sleep a night was pa-lenty! Of course! Right? I mean, who needs sleep? My thought behind this brilliant lifestyle: “I just don’t require much sleep…I am totally fine! I have been this way since college…trust me…I’m fine!” Well…FYI…my husband and mother definitely got to say “I told you so!” Let’s just say that it hasn’t been pretty…and…3 or 4 hours of sleep is definitely not enough…and…well, although it has been tough…I have now realized that I am no longer in college! {Dang!} If my student teacher had not been full time this week, I would have had to explain to the doc that it would have been more of a stress for me to stay home than to be at school. You know what I mean? But thankfully…she has it all under control! Praise the Lord! So…the moral of the pit…if you are one of those crazy night owls like me….BEWARE! GET YOUR SLEEP!  BUT don’t worry…I am on the mend and will return to school tomorrow for one whole day before spring break! :) Just in time for some fun Easter{ish} activities! So, if you have been wondering where my poetry and measurement units are…it may be a few more days, but I promise to get them up soon! 

Now, for the peak! I seriously could go on and on with peaks, but this week’s peak is definitely the fact that it is time for SPRING BREAK! Yes…next week…I will be out of school for the entire week…BY CHOICE! And yes…I will be sitting poolside or beachside with my magazines and books! Hallelujer is all I have to say about that! :)

I hope you have all had a fabulous week and just incase you have some pits…here is a little peak for you…my TPT store is still on sale until March 31st! You can visit my store by clicking on the link below!


What is your pit and peak of the week?


  1. I totally agree!

    I love them too! I watch all of their shows

    I love Khloe the most, although she is too much of a curser for me but nevertheless I love her

  2. My pit was that Report Cards for 29 kiddos, my alarm clocking not going off, b/c I forgot to turn it on, and I was late to school!

    My peak is going to be the field trip tomorrow and pay day! I am Broke, with a capital B!

  4. I hope you're feeling better! I hope you have a FABULOUS Spring break!

  5. Hope you get to feeling better! I agree with you that's easier to go to school when sick than make sub plans. Enjoy your spring break!

  8. Ugh! Feel better soon. I hate missing school, but hopefully you'll enjoy your Spring Break!

    My pit was definitely pulling an all-nighter finishing grade cards.

    My peak of the week was getting LOTS of books for cheap from a library book sale and redeeming a bunch of Scholastic Book Order coupons! (But it could change tomorrow- that's my birthday!)

    Hope you feel better soon!

  10. My pit happened today when one of friends destroyed my classroom. 45 minutes to clean it up and put it all back together was definitely the low point of the week. The peak was scoring a practice math test we took and my kids kicked that bad boy in the pants!

  11. well it seems like you're speaking straight to me on the sleep! I haven't been sleeping well the past year and chalked it up to being a night owl and stress, but perhaps I need to really get a healthy bedtime going. Hope you're feeling better soon!

    I like the K's too! I try to stop watching them and I can't! Scott cracks me up too-his loafers with no socks, the way he talks, and he seems more humane now then he did in the beginning.


  12. Yikes! I'm one of those crazy night owls who gets about 5 hours of sleep a night...and, like you, I say, "I'm fine!" It's starting to wear on me though and my husband is telling me every night, "Jamie, GO TO BED!" Hope you feel better soon!
