Goals & Gratitude 8/13/19

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

School has been going well. I had a midterm due yesterday for my auditing class; I should find out my score sometime next week. Today was the dreaded managerial accounting day. I did really well on the quiz (90%) and one of the homeworks (92%) but got a 77% on the second homework so I guess it all evens out. I still have an 86% average for the homework and quizzes, and my goal is to maintain that for the entire class. I thought I didn't understand this week's work as I found the reading confusing, but when I went to do the homework today, I found I understood it pretty well and was able to figure out most of it, except one thing, which is why I got a 77%.

I got to talk on the phone to my friend Sarah in Wisconsin tonight. We don't get to talk often because she has a 2-year-old. But we got to talk for a little while about how things are going. She sounds good. She has a new job, and her son is getting good treatment for his autism. She's seeing improvement in his communication skills regularly, which is a great thing. I hope once I get a job to be able to go back and visit her. I've never met her son.

Tomorrow I'm baking bread for church. We make a special sweet bread for feast days called artoklasia. Tomorrow evening is the service for the Dormition (Assumption) of the Virgin Mary. I won't be able to go to service as it's at midnight and that will screw up my sleep schedule way too much if I'm awake until 1 AM, but I will drop off the bread.

I'm having friends over for dinner on Friday, so I need to start cleaning up the house tomorrow. I also have a bunch of errands to run. And I want to get a walk in. I will be super busy for sure the next couple of days. I'm making potato tacos on Friday. Yum!

Tomorrow's Goals:
1) Work on cleaning the living and dining rooms.
2) Bake bread.
3) Run errands.

Today I'm Grateful For...
1) That I got to talk to Sarah for a little while.
2) That I got a 90% on my quiz.
3) That I can take a break from homework tomorrow.
