It has been a big week for me. I'll give you the list...lots of ups and downs.
- I dropped a jean size...again. There are some out there who haven't realized I am even losing weight. It is part of the cruddy part of being part giant...you lose a lot of weight and people can't see it until it is a ton of weight. But this makes me down 4 sizes since this time last year. I went from barely fitting into the jeans at the fat girl store to being able to roll into the local Walmart and pick up a pair of the most annoyingly bedazzled jeans on the clearance rack. LOVE IT!
- My teaching blog that I co-write with some teacher friends at work has had its big reveal this week. At work we have a group of us that meet twice a month to discuss our teaching. We are in a book study and we try to apply what we learn from the professional books and learn from the discussions that the books produce. It sounds boring...but I absolutely love this stuff. It is my nerdy side, I can't hide it. I came up with the idea of all of us writing a blog about our adventures in application as a way to invite others to grow with us. I am pretty sure it will catch on. Eventually. I have to teach those folks the wonder that is blogging and blog reading first then we will be on like Donkey Kong.
- Because of the new teaching blog I have become a Youtube addict. I do love documentaries. I know, nerdy. The Youtube is like a treasure chest of documentaries....I am overwhelmed and beside myself. Every night I have to give myself at least a little time to peruse. It makes me happy.
- This coming Friday is my birthday. I am thinking of taking the day off and mourning at home in solitude. It is another year where a long list of goals have not yet been met. There is still no book of mine on Amazon, no sweet baby in my arms. The clock is ticking. Damn Clock.
