I am sitting here teaching Saturday detention, thinking of all the changes that have happened in the last year. My husband has changed jobs several times, and never for the better. My elementary baby has started middle school, and not without hipcups. And I continue to be in charge of scheduling, planning, budgeting and chauffeering. In the meantime, I gained back all the weight I have lost, and then some, and have avoided coming back here because of acts of responsibility like I don't want to reset the clicker. And now, I have been eating mostly vegetarian for the last few weeks, jeans are definitely loser (battery has gone out in my scale), and I am working on plans to finish my novel. We'll see.

I guess this is a several month summary entry.
this year at school has been horrible. We are understaffed, undersupported, and morale is down the toilet. I work with people who I cannot begin to figure out, and, at this point, don't really care to. I feel my blood pressure going up as I write this, and that has been another problem-- I've gone from always having good blood pressure to having it go through the roof. So, for Advent, it is time to start taking care of all of it.
So, I've clicked on the blood pressure monitor messures, and here we go again.

Hopefully, I'll get back to a routine. This last month has been wonderful, but I haven't even been aboe to guess at the calories. Now, there will be many fewer choices.
Of course, school also takes up most of the day. Spent today gettingthings ready-- cleaning, laundry, etc. I guess I'm ready to go.

After a series of interuptions-- a friend's mother died, a visitor from the Czech Republic. But mostly, being tired of not seeing anything budge, not to mention missing a lot of my goals. Some things I have managed to do-- private skating lessons are awesome, progress on the novel is not. Losing the next ten pounds, not even started. In fact, I'm sure I have gained some of the last 10 back. (DId I mention fried cheese? My friend from the Czech Republic made it. You take a wedge, flour it, dip in egg, bread crumbs, and fry it until it is golden on the outside, soft on the inside. Don't even want to know the calories in that, but I only eat it every ten years.)
So, now I'm back. Not gritting my teeth back, but trying to make things flow back. Summer didn't help the writing, because there is still a fear factor. And maybe laziness.

My teenager got me on facebook this week, and I have been catching up with former students. A lot of them are from an urban school with a bad reputation, soI am pleased to report lots of college degrees, international travel, and not too many children, yet. and some of them even have English degrees.
Private lesson today was fun. When I got to the rink, a group approached me from my school, to make sure that I was who they thought. I should have them in class in 2 years. First thing I did was fall, so now we have established that teachers do that. (Note to self: move teaching persona to risk taker, while still trying to maintain healthy dose of witch.) However, the coach was great, and I have a lot to practice.
Nothing about food in here. My daughter and I found a great sandwich shop, and I went with the grilled chicken/ veg. wrap. Not too bad a choice, considering I managed to leave the mall. Can't figure out exactly what the calories were. DH and I are childless tonight, and will probably order in a steak, and split it.
