Tenacity Tuesday
Tuesday, July 27, 2010      1 comments

Wanda has posted a thread to Positive Bloggers that I have hopped on. "Word of the Day". It came from a workshop that she attended. I like it. Quieting my spirit to listen to what the universe has to give me to help me through my day. This ... Read more
Finding motivation this Monday!
Monday, July 26, 2010      1 comments

It is wonderful to be back with the positive reinforcers! I didn't realize how "off the track" my attitude had gotten. I spent a lot of time cussin' out my fellow road warriors. I'm ashamed to say that some very unsavory words came out of thi... Read more
Back to business in Texas.

My spark journey seems to be one of very slow but persistent forward progress. Most importantly, I am in good health. I am grateful for that. I did not pack on too many pounds on my trip. I think I'm up three, but that should be walked off i... Read more
Daily positives.
Friday, June 18, 2010      8 comments

I miss my old routine of taking the time to list my positives of the day! It really helps my attitude. I'm thinking that I will really have to get into the journal habit when I leave for vacation. I woke up this morning in a panic. ... Read more
Tuesday and time is flying!

This week's challenge was goal setting. Yesterday was an "education" in how far from my Spark routine I have meandered. I also learned that when it comes to working toward MY goals, I'm not that gung ho. I work harder for others than I work f... Read more
Phew!

I can hardly believe that it's been almost a month since I blogged. A busy month with lots going on. I subbed a lot. School is now over for the year. I had company. My sister and her husband came for the Memorial Day Weekend and... Read more
Making the most of the opportunities!
Sunday, May 16, 2010      4 comments

I guess the end of the year is a crazy time for teachers and the subbing positions are plentiful! I worked every day last week! I can't tell you where I subbed on Monday. It's all a blur. I remember Friday. I signed up for a 5th grade posit... Read more
Tuesday!

I am on my way to a decent bedtime. I have full days of subbing all week. I am glad for the work and praying for the stamina. Positives. Elementary Art never fails to satisfy! Had a great morning. Picked up the Mr. at the... Read more
Motivated Monday.
Monday, May 10, 2010      3 comments

Having a subbing position lined up in advance is great motivation on a Monday morning. I signed up this weekend for HS Math. This is a stretch for a woman who suffers with math anxiety! At this point, I figured, "what the heck." I was so bl... Read more
Someone here needs to regroup!

I didn't know what day it was today. I knew I had to get up to take my car to the collision shop and then get a rental car. There was a mix up with the rental car. Apparently there is some convention in town and rental cars are scarce! Who ... Read more
Too late Tuesday
Tuesday, May 04, 2010      5 comments

I subbed today and I have lined up subbing positions for the rest of the week. Tomorrow is an early day, so I must hurry to bed. Tuesday seems to have gotten away from me. I'll catch up tomorrow. Priority right now is to list my positives an... Read more
Magical Monday!
Monday, May 03, 2010      5 comments

Mondays are always full of surprises! I took an afternoon sub position. So last night, I stayed up and futzed around with laundry 'til the wee hours. I saw on the computer that the teacher I was subbing for changed her mind and decided that s... Read more
Preparing for the new week.
Sunday, May 02, 2010      4 comments

Last week kind of got away from me. I see that I didn't blog since Tuesday. Where the heck was I? I think I was recovering from the job fair. I was thrown into a bit of a pity haze, I believe. Poor me. Old and undervalued. I don't truly b... Read more
untitled.
Tuesday, April 27, 2010      9 comments

That title just made me smile. When I go to an Art gallery or museum and the artist has named his piece "untitled" I always remark "what a cop out!" So today I'm "copping out". ("what you dislike in others. . ." ) Robin asked about my... Read more
All tuckered out , or in. Just plain tuckered.
Monday, April 26, 2010      2 comments

It's 9:30 at night and I'm spent! Getting old, I guess. But, I want to fit in some positives before I retire for the evening. Positives. Our middle son celebrated his 21st birthday today. It really seems that 21 years happened in... Read more
