So we went to the dance competition and the girls did well. They won a bunch of trophies and plaques and pins so their teachers were happy. I did go backstage to help Rachel with her hair to change it for the next dance and the dance teacher watched me for a minute and then said, “Just let me do it.” SO I’m not going backstage again. I know when I’m not wanted.
Today I have advising with my program director about this summer and next semester. I’m going to sign up for the long residency this summer and the Forms in Fiction II class this fall. So that is my plan unless my professor objects to it for some reason. And I c an’t imagine why he would.
THen I go out to lunch with Bob today and MJ tomorrow. Rachel was selected for a special trip next summer through the school for going to Washington DC and New York, and we have an informational meeting Tuesday night. SO I will likely go to that. Then church on Wednesday and I’m not sure we have anything else planned for the rest of the week. We will see.
I was really proud that I handled the weekend okay. I didn’t take Xanax and I didn’t fly off the handle at anybody, even the dance teacher. I’m learning how to cope better with stress, I suppose. I’m certainly trying to. Prayer is effective in this as well. Keeps me from getting too anxious.
Hope everyone has a good week this week.
