flit’s back to school countdown – 6 days

So … had tons of stuff I wanted to get done this week and so far it is just NOT HAPPENING.

A whole lot of stress & aggravation yesterday – I did start making progress on my psych essay … but only just. Then Ross got home and the day just rolled downhill quickly from there. Tons of kidShit I could without… but we will get it sorted.  Somehow or other.

Decided to quit stressing so much about the reading – anything that doesn’t get read this week, I can read after my training sessions etc next week. It will be my first week of staying in a motel without Ross … should be able to get some of it done.  The psychology paper and my sanity need to come first.

Got offered a course to teach this coming semester at Georgian, but they had already scheduled it in for Tuesdays and weren’t willing to change it to Thursday to suit my schedule. I am almost relieved – I think I will have quite enough to keep me busy this semester, really. And the money wouldn’t even really be good enough to make it worthwhile either – when you teach 3 or more courses you are paid well…just one, I usually get about half of my hourly rate & no benefits. I would have done it – but I’m more than okay with not doing it, too.

I could have should have made progress on my paper today – but this is what I decided to do instead:

Grandma Lee & Colton out on Georgian Bay.

Some things are just more important than stressing about kids and school.
