I've been away for a bit. We had 2 deaths in the family in the same week. An aunt on one side of the family and an uncle on the other. These were 2 of my many aunts and uncles I knew the best. They were actually the final 2 of all of my aunts and uncles. (Most of their spouses are still alive.) So sad for their families. We were prepared for one death but the other was a shock.
I also planned and implemented 2 field trips. That takes a lot of work. They were fun but exhausting. One to the Wildlife World Zoo and one to the Phoenix Children's Museum.
We had our annual jog-a-thon and Field Day so I was moving a lot on those days.
In one week alone we had a field trip, a local newschannel landed their helicopter at our school, we had a water conservation puppet show, and something else I can't think of right off hand.
One Sat. I went to a morning Lenten "retreat" which was a great way to start my Lent off right. It was about Lazarus from the book of John. I felt a real sense of community as we shared our experiences and perceptions. It's times like this that help me on my spiritual journey.
We had a big teacher in-service. Did a lot of walking there. A lot of sitting, too, of course. Ha ha.
I went to a class on learning about the new Roman Missal of which the implementation of will begin the end of November of this year. I'm glad I'm learning about this now so I can prepare myself.
Over the weekend I listened to half of cd #6 from The End of Overeating by Dr. Kessler. I also exercised Fri., Sat., and Sun. Not much but at least I did it.
I started tracking my food again. I know that is the only way I will be successful.
I'm taking my first webinar class this week. I've never done this before. Hope I sign on correctly.
From now until the end of the year it will be hectic. Especially May. I don't know how we survive May. I don't know when I'll have time to get on but I'll stop in when I can.
They are supposed to start putting a new roof on my house today. It rained yesterday so I'll see when I get home if they were able to start today. I can not wait until that is over with.
