Couch Surfing

Today I am going to sit on my couch with my laptop and answer two questions for a job interview screening process. Each one to be answered in 500 words or less.

1. Explain the importance of Nebraska’s state tests and what is your plan to ensure students are successful on the future state tests?
2. Explain the characteristics and/or qualities that describe an exceptional classroom? Exceptional school building? Exceptional district?

Before I plop my hiney down at the computer, I am going to swim 1000 yards and lift weights. After I am done answering the two questions, I am going to run 3 miles and bike 25 miles. [Actually I'm going to swap the run and the bike around as I'm finding it beneficial to run after I bike for my tri training.] I will save it, review it on Thursday after a swim workout, email it off per the directions and then run. After I run I will cross all my fingers and toes that I get called for an interview. WOOT!

Anybody out there doing the Olathe 1/2 Marathon besides KimPossible and I? If you are, let me know so we can have a blogger hook up. How about the Lincoln Marathon or 1/2?? If you need a place to stay, I have room. KimPossible and her hubby got first dibs, but I got lots of floor space, a set of bunk beds, two couches and a hide-a-bed. Even if you don't run, come be our cowbell! If you already have a place to stay, we still need to hook up! So let me know. If your flying in and need to be picked up, I can accommodate. It's going to be a great weekend and a great run.

Have a great Wednesday. Today I am officially a running, biking, swimming mother of a teen - my oldest is 13 today! Life is great!

Sounds like you have a quadrathlon going today. For me, answering the two questions would probably be the hardest and least enjoyable event. Good luck!

I'm doing the lincoln half, and I think we already have a hotel booked. Very kind of you to offer though. I can't believe it's about 6weeks away!

I'm running the Olathe half! We will for sure have to meet up. Thinking about doing the half at Lincoln, but not sure yet since it's the week after I'm doing the full at OKC.
