DJ, hope you feel better. A sick child is stressful.

Thursday - I missed out on that one.

Friday - I'm working on

Saturday - homecoming at the high school, I will try my best with that.

Sunday - my dh is coming home and I'm driving to the airport to pick him up. I hate driving there but I don't want him to have to take the bus so it means alot to me to do it.

Have a great weekend!

Whoops. I dropped off this thread again. Don't understand why that happens. But after being sick I totally forgot about it. Anyway, I'm back.

DJ, I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter being sick. I just got over pneumonia myself. No fun. Also sorry to hear about how rough it is for you at school. That's just not right to have a supervisor cuss at you.

Jen, thanks for taking over the challenges for the week. I'll try to keep up.

Thanks, Jen. My oldest daughter has pneumonia. She's doing ok, but it's been a very busy and hectic (and mostly sleepless) week for both of us! Thanks for the help!

My daughter is extremely ill. I can't do the challenges this week. If anyone is willing and able, please create a new thread for Oct. and post some daily challenges for the next few days. I would greatly appreciate it! :)

Jen, I can't remember the last time I got more than 5 or 6 hours sleep. Hopefully, things at work will get better soon, so I can get some much needed rest!

Wow, DJ. I can't even imagine having a supervisor cuss at you. That is so far out of line. It sounds like you have a time bomb there just waiting to explode. I hope it works out.

Honestly, Jen, not good. But I'm hanging in there. Hope to have some of the biggest issues resolved soon. I had a very rough day today. I've worked at this same school for 13 years. I've occasionally wondered if I might want to look elsewhere at the end of a school year, but I've never before considered asking for a transfer in the middle of a school year. My assistant principal became frustrated and cussed at me today when I asked for a list of all the students in my classes. (We've had more than 100 schedule changes since September 10th and some students are reporting to the wrong classes due to a lack of communication.) I've about reached my limit. I'm just going to have to take one day at a time and do the best job I can do. I really do love my job. I just sometimes need to remind myself of that.

No apologies necessary, Suzzy. I just wondered what you tried and how you liked it. I completely understand finding certain food textures unappealing.

unfortunately I was not able to complete this challenge but I did eat plenty of fresh fruit yesterday with grapes and huge naval orange and a banana

The texture of a smoothie just does not appeal to me at all and when it comes to eating or drinking anything that is thick and smooth (such as puddings, soups or creamy drinks) it makes me feel nauseous to even think about it.

Sorry

Got my 8 hours on Monday.

I have lots of excuses for Tuesday, but the bottom line is that I didn't do it.

I am up for Wednesday's challenge of drinking 8 glasses of water. I really need to do this. For Me!
