Retaking Me

I just finished my time as a long-term substitute, teaching middle school Language Arts, among other things. They decided they wanted someone with a single subject credential so said person could split their time between the middle school and the high school. Nope. Not me. It will work out. Always does somehow. Just once, though, I would like to see the same classroom two years in a row again.

I'm still single-momming it with the 10 year old 12 days out of every 14 while ...

I'm still single-momming it with the 10 year old 12 days out of every 14 while hubby work 150 miles away and stays down there most of the time. He's getting more burned out.

Thank you for the comments on my I'm so Afraid blog... I have lost track of so many of the fires, I didn't know you were so close to one.. Only 3% contained...it must be fairly new. The tankers fly very low over my house nearly every day out of McClellan (I am in Carmichael).. My niece and other family are in Clearlake Oaks, Lower Lake and Spring Valley. 50 miles is 50 miles, but still too close for comfort. God bless you... AND CONGRATULATIONS on a new job (?) emoticon Drink your water don't waste it.

Thanks for the check in. I'm still moving forward, but it hasn't been easy lately. I need a few more hours in my day without having to cut them out of my sleep.

Thanks for your advice! I will try to incorporate a new cardio element. Drinking lots of water has helped in the past. I should really work on that too. It's nice to know that other people understand this stagnant step of the journey. I added you as a friend. emoticon

Thank you for the art supplies -- my near-addiction!

I started another new 30-day project yesterday, and although I didn't finish the ICAD, I'm going to try harder to stick to this one. It involves making a 5"x 7" collage everyday (1st thing in the morning), using three images and a word or phrase, and trying to get it done in just 10-20 minutes. There are also other instructions to follow. The facilitator, Shelley Klammer, includes a lot of motivational tips and "art therapy," and checks in with you by email every two days. It's been really interesting, so far, and I've completed two collages.

Hope you and your daughter are still getting some of the cards done everyday!
