Well my Monday is already measuring up to being quite busy so this is just a quick check-in and then I must be off to more meetings etc. This is my first day back on campus (full day) as we prepare for classes to start on Wednesday 8-15-12, and I already feel slightly behind even though my course prep is essentially complete. I still need to plan the first week of classes though so diving in on that. Back to school everyone
I did have some frustration this weekend when I tried to use the tax free weekend to pick up some work clothes. Nothing seemed to fit right. I’m pretty used to that, but it is extra frustrating after all the hard work I have put in this summer. Le sigh.
Last week was a bit off, a feel I’ve been saying that too much lately, but I am also taking the offness a bit better than I used to. So, that is something, the learning of how to accept when things don’t go the way you want them to go. (So – I like the word so today. So sue me). Hubs and I did finally decide to purchase a treadmill for the house so we will be dropping the gym membership. Instead I can run in the neighborhood, jog on the treadmill, or take the occasional yoga class nearby. I feel better about that.
I am also continuing to clean out things from my house, and my eating out repretoire that I feel just aren’t inline with making me feel good. I continue to take those little baby steps towards better health which also included, this weekend, the replacing of shoes. Ah for new shoes to help my aching feet.
One of my meetings today was to help out one of the adjuncts who will be teaching a combo class of creative writing 1 and 2 as a face to face class. If there are tips that I’ve given you, or that you have, that you’d like me to share with her feel free to send them my way. She is looking for readings to give, writing exercises, lit mags to peruse etc so feel free to share some of your favorite creative writing tips for beginners.
And then go off and measure how awesome you are for stopping by
