I finally sat down and made out my new syllabus. I added a lot more authors to the end since I cut down on some of the historical discussion. So that was good. And the last day is clear for the final exam discussion they will inevitably want to have. So that was a big load off of my shoulders. I’ve sent it to print at the office and will go pick it up next week. while my youngest is gone to see my parents. I need to set up my syllabus in the online interface. I dont’ really remember how to do that so may schedule a session to have that done on either Monday or Friday next week. I will have to see.
Slow day so far. I’ve accomplished the above and done some laundry and not much else. We have a meeting tonight about the church youth event next week so that will hopefully be informative and I’ll get a schedule of when she needs to leave and get back and etc. I hope it goes well and she learns a lot.
Got some more rejections. I am really getting frustrated with my writing. I can’t seem to break through anywhere that pays for articles. They are just now sending out payments for my novella and it’s no more than a token payment–I am going to go along with what they want me to do as far as marketing within reason so that maybe they will look at me for a book publication in the future. But that is so far out into the future.
Hope everyone is having a good week and is already looking forward to the weekend. I have doctor appointments tomorrow and Friday so I will be getting up early for those. Not much else is going on. Have a good rest of the week!
Ive been busy this morning–had to have my youngest at the church for an event for her youth group and went to therapy then to lunch with MJ. We had a good time talking, but now I have to go to the dentist and get my permanent crown in. So it’s not much of a post but just long enough to say and hi and thanks to all who are still reading me after all these years together.
Hope everyone is having a happy first of the week and that things continue to go well this week. Hope to talk longer tomorrow!
UPDATE: Got my crown put in and still having a good day. Had a good therapy session as I said before–talked about relapse signs, triggers, and solutions. Trying ot get ahead of anything that may be coming on me and seeing if we can get in front of it and keep a relapse from happening. We will just have to see how it all works.
Good morning! I’m back from my trip and glad to be done with dance for a while. My youngest enjoyed herself and learned a lot so that is good. That’s why we go. The competition was okay–our girls didn’t get the highest ratings but also did not get the lowest either, so that was nice. They got a lot of applause whenever they performed so that was nice as well–they were crowd pleasers.
I forgot to pack one of my meds and it started to show Sunday–I was very jumpy and anxious. But I’m back on it today and am managing well so far. I just miscounted my pill bottles and forgot to recheck them.
Long day ahead–I’ve got to go to the grocery store and get food and what not and then I’m not sure what I’m going to do. I am still so tired–I had a lot of trouble with reflux last night and did not sleep well until late at night. I didnt’ cough any, just felt the heartburn coming on.
Hope everyone has a great start to their week!
So I sent off a new story yesterday. I enjoyed working on it and had fun putting it together. Hopefully someone will pick it up. and I can get some exposure.
Getting ready to go out to eat with Bob and my youngest for lunch. We’re going to Fannin Mart for fried chicken and country vegetables. So we will enjoy that.
THis afternoon we are shipping out to Biloxi for the last dance competition of the season. I’m still not looking forward to it but I am not filled with dread, either. We will see how everything goes. I won’t be blogging while we’re gone, but that means I’ll only miss one day of it. THat will be all right.
I have to refill some medicine before we leave and will do that on our way to lunch. My knees are still pain free and that excites me every time I think about it. No other way to explain it except that it is God doing a healing work in me. So excited to be able to walk normally!
Hope everyone has a great weekend and gets in some relaxing time with family.
Finally broke out of the low period and am back to feeling better. Getting ready to pack for the dance competition and getting everything together for that.
Got up basically on time and have been rolling along. DId laundry and what not this morning. Haven’t done a lot of other stuff; just talked to Bob and it’s slow where he is too. So we are waiting for him to come in for lunch.
Got my textbooks in the mail yesterday and will be looking through those soon and see if I can get any ideas from them for the class. I am looking forward to classes starting and will see what all I can get done. We will see how all that goes in August.
Need to run and do some things this afternoon. Soon will be ready for lunch. HOpe everyone has a great rest of the week!
So my middle one is shipped out on her way back to college. My youngest and I are waiting on her friend to come over to spend the night. I had a wonderful breakfast of fresh watermelon, and it tasted soo good. I actually woke up at a decent hour and am staying awake so far. So that is good as well.
Found a closet conservative in my MFA program yesterday. I’ve seen him posting on Facebook some things and I just finally asked him about it in Messenger and we talked a bit about how we both avoid politics for the most part in class so as to get along better. Our classes aren’t very political so it’s not hard to do so.
Talked with a new girl in the program who is bipolar as well. She had been posting mental health advocacy things and I told her I was bipolar and she responded that she was too. So we conversed about that a little bit. I told her about the disability accommodations program and she said she would follow up on it. So we will see how she does.
Got some work to do before the friend comes over so I need to get to that. Hope everyone has a great weekend–we’ll be hosting Bob’s birthday and will be going on from there.
So my middle child discovered this morning about mid-morning that she actually reports to college tomorrow instead of Saturday. So she is madly packing stuff that she meant to pack tomorrow at a more leisurely pace. I’ve offered to help but she seems to know what she wants to do and is taking care of it herself.
Got a note that I’ll be having a conference call with the publisher for my novella on Sunday August 5. I’ll either leave church early or skip it. Haven’t decided. But we will see how it goes.
My oldest survived the Fourth of July, her first holiday at Disney. She calls every once in a while to let us know how she is doing so that is nice. She still seems to be enjoying it and going there as a guest once a week on her days off. Today she is networking with some other chefs from her resort, playing around in the Magic Kingdom.
Hope everyone has a good weekend. I’m coping as well as can be expected this week. I will miss my middle one but it will be okay. She is moving on with her life, which is what we want them to do.
