Almost made it a year...

Well, I almost made it a full year of writing "Three Simple Things" each day. But I found that I was not enjoying the pressure of having to come up with three things every day.

I'll still post stuff occasionally on my original blog, bfmomma's spot, but it won't be daily. :)

1. Was able to stay home today (was supposed to go in to shadow) since I felt really awful. I actually still feel pretty yucky, but am hoping I can sleep it off.

2. Mom came over for coffee, talk, and help folding laundry.

3. C. is very excited about a weekend away with one of the friends she made at Student Council camp--we set up the details today.

1. Everyone got up and ready and out the door--even without me to direct them! (lol)

2. Made it through my first day of long-term subbing, which was actually just shadowing the teacher I'll be replacing.

3. Got a $165 gift certificate from Tupperware for all the Rock N Serves that I returned and stopped using when I realized the dangers of microwaving in plastic. Now what to spend it on?

4. Flowers from my mom, in honor of my first day of work.

1. Productive morning of running errands on my one "day off" for the week.

2. (Relatively) clean house--and supper made (seems so long since I've been the least bit domestic).

3. Knitting Club at the new place. Although it's a bit more crowded, and kinda noisy, the food is better, the atmosphere is cooler, and it's next door to a yarn shop, so I'm pretty happy with it!

1. Had my physical/drug test/TB test this morning. It's so odd to have to do all these things, but I guess it's been 16 years since my last job application! It makes everything more "real".

2. Met with my Graduate Advisor so she could sign a financial aid form, and so we could talk about what project I might want to work on. She just wrote a grant for a new study that sounds really cool! If she gets the funding (she'll find out in June), I should be able to be in on the project almost from the beginning.

3. Three good tutoring sessions tonight.

1. G. woke up not fully recovered, but MUCH better.

2. I did some spring cleaning early--disinfecting the entire upstairs!

3. Went to a going-away party for one of my neighbors. Her going away is not a happy thing, but the nice party with so many of her local friends WAS a happy thing.

1. C. made it home safely when the bus to their Forensics meet had to turn around due to poor visibility (we got probably 10 inches of snow).

2. T's team won the indoor championship game! (T's the one with the blurry arm)
3. Although G's been VERY sick all day, at the time I'm writing this, he is (at least) not any worse. Hopefully he'll improve overnight.
