Heh. I'm feeling pretty snuff about myself today!
I dredged my way through all my CE assignments, with the exception of two which I couldn't get to. They're ones you have to post the first part for the instructor to approve, and then she unlocks the next portion. So there's two of those left - but they're followup of the primary I've already submitted. woo-hoo!
I got some email from a former CE instructor (in my specialty) who's decided I'm the authority, and she sent me some pics to evaluate. That felt pretty empowering.
I got over whatever digestive malady I brought upon myself and (so far) I'm able to eat again. I don't know; maybe that's NOT a good thing! lol
And THEN... (probably because of that indiscretion) the scale was kind to me today and taunted me with a number about 2 pounds less than I saw the last time I climbed aboard. I'm not going to get wild about it -- but it's a nice idea, and I'll take it for what it's worth!
It's a pretty day here, although the radar and forecast is for rain later. I don't know why I even mention or consider such things: it's FL! This is how it's SUPPOSED to be! I can remember some years it being so dependable you could nearly set your clock by the afternoon shower. I sort of like the thunder and the little whippy breezes. Storms energize me. Give me a storm over a sunny day with fluffy clouds anytime!
So most of my "oughtas" are behind me. It wasn't the ordeal I had envisioned. It never is. This is my traditional approach. I know it's just dread, and it's not real. I don't know why I'm so slow on the uptake with this! I feel like I'm at least moderately intelligent. I should be able to assimilate this! oh well There's another line-item to go along with my "slacker-iness" (is that even a word?!?)
Anyway, I have a day I can contemplate and dig into more fun stuff now. See, I even get to reward myself! and still... I don't learn! sheesh I might catch up with my (snail-mail) pen pal, who's been languishing sans correspondence for a couple weeks now. I might pick up a little craft project I'm going to make for my friend. I might finish reading one of my just-for-fun books. I might work through a couple more reviews, which I seem to have abandoned recently. Well... maybe not. That feels a bit like an "oughta"! But it's a "wanna" too. We'll see. Or I might just be completely useless and go out and sit in the sun and enjoy the day until the rain kicks in.
I have no idea. Possibilities are endless! What a nice feeling.
Hope you all have some nice feelings to shower upon yourselves too!
