I've been in a very weird spot (all around). I (think I am) back on track, at least this morning I think so.
On my "to do" list for today was a 50 mile bike ride...oh well, that ain't gonna happen today. I took my car (bike on the rack) to the park where the "flat ride" starts. Five feet away from the car, the chain broke. So I came back home.
This evening I'm going to a retirement dinner for the lead teacher I worked with last year. I miss her. My year with her taught me a lot - most specifically that (whatever you might hear from other people) you should let each person prove themselves. Before I got moved into Mary's classroom, I had heard a few things about her that were not very nice. They were wrong.
I have also learned over the years that sometimes the moves that I think are going to be disasters - or moves that I've been forced into making - are the best ones for me.
I cringed when I saw my room assignment for this year. Mostly I just wanted to stay put for a year. But...it's going to be a good year. Really. Again, what made me cringe is most likely the best thing for me. The things that I think are going to be "bad" are just...different. The hardest things (like moving from a more non-structured room to a room that has more structure) is actually good for me, yet an adjustment.
We're attending a CRC again. I don't know how long it will last, but I told the kids I'd give it a try.
And I've lost 6 1/2 pounds in the month of August (first Friday to first Friday). More of a lower-carb diet. Not very low carb, but definately more sensible. I also let my exercise level for the day add to the grams of carbs I eat.
Politically...It's all about Palin. And relating Palin to the common woman.
Spiritually...it seems like a wash. Listened to Driscoll on spiritual warfare. Talked with a friend about "The Shack" and some things she's going through.
