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!
I got to feeling worse and worse as yesterday went on–I finally had to take a Xanax to get my thoughts to stop spinning around. I feel some better today but not much. I am getting ready to put all my new CD’s in the stereo and listen to them and see if I can cheer myself up. I don’t know what the problem is.
Later this week we got to Biloxi for a dance competition. I’m not looking forward to that– I am sick of the schedule for dance and do not want to go to three days of it. I just hate it.
Next week I will be busy following up with doctors so that will keep me busy. I just wish I knew what to do with myself the rest of the time. I am so tired and sleepy; I had a bad night snoring and kept Bob up so that wasn’t any fun.
Maybe I should go ahead and take another Xanax in case it kicks back up again. We will see.
Dont’ know why I’m so tired and out of sorts, but I am. I don’t feel right at all. I finally dragged myself out and went to the grocery store and got meals for the week, but I’m not feeling the least bit accomplished in doing it. I just want to go back to bed. I havent’ felt quite like this in a while, and I dont’ know what brought it on.
I’m seriously wondering about my motivation to teach. I want to do something, but I’m just not sure what anymore. I’m just not looking forward to getting back into the classroom and facing down a bunch of students who don’t care. I have 27 so far, which I think is the most I’ve ever had in a classroom since State. It’s not hard to teach the material; the biggest issue is making them care enough to learn it. I hoped if I got back into a four-year school that I would have more students on the ball and caring about their grades. But maybe college students have really changed for the worse since I did this last.
I need to record my vlog if I’m going to continue doing it. I just wish I felt better. Hope everyone else has a good week.
