I have the day off today. The sun is shining and I will take advantage of a nice walk today in the bright Texas sunshine. My cold symptoms are gradually diminishing. I am learning a lot about myself and our education system wit... Read more

I have scheduled subbing for this afternoon, so I am trying to get my goals accomplished this morning. My main goal for today is to get my menu planned for the week. I usually get it done on Saturday, but this weekend was not a "usual" weekend... Read more
Still working at it.

Most of my energy for the past two weeks has been on trying to get rid of the germ that invaded my space. I find myself two weeks down the road and in a place that I didn't expect to be. Just a bit lost. But I am regaining my strength and hop... Read more
Finding my healthy self.

I suppose life has shown me that it runs in cycles. Every so often you are coasting along and then you hit a wall. I don't suppose there is anything you can do to prevent this. How's that saying go "A calm sea a skilled mariner does not make"... Read more

I usually take illness right in stride. This time has been a real battle for me. Perhaps it's the way the planets are aligned or something. (I'm just toying with that because DH informed me that on Saturday the planets were aligned in such a ... Read more
Just checking in.

I am still not feeling like healthy self. I'm working hard not to let my illness define my attitude, but I'm quite weary from coughing and hacking about. So I guess I would do well to find some positives. Positives. I have the freedo... Read more

I see my last blog was on October 25. On the 26th I taught kindergarten and celebrated my birthday. I taught the same class on Tuesday and a little boy got me down close to tell me "my throat hurts." A little while later a little girl said "te... Read more

Positives. I met a challenge and faced a fear this week. Took a teaching job outside my comfort zone. It went well. I am scheduled for 3 days work next week. If another position becomes available, I'm ready to step up. I am star... Read more
No title today.

What a rebel! Breaking all the rules! I took DD to the airport. This was her first "solo" flight and I'm sure she's fine, but she looked a bit frightened when I dropped her off. Which is exactly what I did. I dropped her off at depart... Read more

Saturday. I went to see my son's band competition. After his performance there were 3 hours to see if they had made it into the finals, so I went next door to the shopping plaza to prowl around. I hadn't had lunch and was getting hungry, so ... Read more
Exhilarating action!

An exhilaration about life accompanies the taking of action. The spell that idleness casts over us is broken, and subsequent actions are even easier to take. Clearly, making a choice and acting on it is healthful. -Karen Casey This quote ca... Read more

It's Friday night after a full and adventurous week and I'm ready to vegitate. But I need to follow my program of discipline. And this week it's blog every day with the exception of Sunday. What day is it? Friday. Fabulous Friday. Guess I h... Read more

Today was a very nice day of substitute teaching. I filled in for High School Girls PE this morning. That was fun. And this afternoon I filled in for a Jr. High Band teacher. They had a pep rally. What a trip that was. I was "spirit filled... Read more

A Monday holiday makes for a short week. I have had half days of work. I signed up for 2 halves of days for tomorrow. HS PE in the a.m. and then bop over to the Jr. High for band. I hope that I don't wind up late for my afternoon classes. I... Read more

I had one goal yesterday. I wanted to stick to my nutrition plan exactly as it was written. I tried this "exercise" with some Spark Friends early on. Commit to one day of eating exactly what you had planned. Make no allowances. No last minut... Read more
