Keeping my personal life separate

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

from my work life is really challenging. I struggle with it more each day.

A few years ago, our superintendent showed us a customer service movie called "Give 'em the Pickle." In it, Bob Farrell, a restaurateur in Seattle, explained what customer service is all about. Part of that should be focusing on your job and concentrating on the service you're being paid to provide rather than wallowing in whatever is going on in your personal life. Dang, it's difficult! I loved the movie, but I'm cursing my boss now for bringing this to my attention and thereby "causing" guilt along whatever else I'm dealing with when I'm struggling. emoticon


I'm Finding Time!

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

It's amazing how eagerly I'm trying to add a little more exercise into my daily routine. During a 15 minute break at work, I got a half mile in and didn't even break a sweat. Today I took two laps before starting work, and this evening, I will squeeze in another couple of laps. Good fun to challenge myself!


Mobility in Writing!

Monday, May 14, 2012

Went to a conference this spring on teaching writing, and one topic was mobility. Mobility in writing meanswriting frequently, so this blog has become my mobility in motion for writing. I may only write a few sentences a day, but it's getting easier to choose a topic, write, and post daily!


Planting Day!

Replaced the soil in our flower beds and planted today. Good workout, and it looks pretty, too!
