Our day started a bit messy with my son barfing all over the kitchen as soon as he finished eating breakfast. Plan was to keep him home just for the morning and take him to school after lunch, but of course, he started wheezing and I put him on the nebulizer… it’s the strong NV wind out here, I swear… it never fails. So I kept him home for the day. He really wanted to go to school tho, so he read and practiced his mad-minute math exercises… my little trooper.
I finally finished my first video-blog (woot! woot!)… I was hesitant bout doing this at first, but two of the biggest names (we’re talkin’ millionaires) in the Internet Marketing circle twisted my arm into it. And who am I to argue? We’ll see how well it does… if my audience like it, I’ll make it a regular thing on my site. Also started recording my podcast again… really weird getting back into this like I am. And even after a year and a half of down time… people still remember me. It seems like they’re drawn to me even more now than they were before. I just gotta keep it going… I need ‘mental discipline’ (per Doctor… I mean, Mr. Stephens).
So… now that I’m using a to-do list, I noticed with every item I check off, I feel the weight on my chest grow lighter. Yeah, I understand it’s common sense, but you know, I’m just re-figuring this out now, so humor me. Even little accomplishments like… “complete all 2-minute tasks”… it’s like now that I’ve gotten them out of the way, I don’t have to worry about them anymore 🙂
Oooohhh… went to David’s Bridal to pick up my dress today… I’m quite proud of myself. The last time I was in a wedding, I was like 40 pounds heavier, so I looked like a swollen eggroll – haha. Now I think I can somewhat blend in with them 24 year old girls I’m joining =) Besides, Steph thinks I’m “thin” and Jimmy doesn’t think I need to lose any weight and Mrs. L calls me “skinny pinny”… that must mean I’m not fat anymore. My next goal is to look anorexic… that would be AWESOME! lol (^^)
Two more days until the 3-day weekend!!! Hopefully I’ll get admin approval for the last newsletter tomorrow, so I can finally get this over and done with. I have to schedule this well for next year… like when articles are to be turned in, when printing needs to begin, and when they should be distributed to all the teachers. And I need to stick to my deadlines, no matter what. Again, I need to discipline myself… which I completely lack… but I have to in order to keep up with my responsibilities and avoid feeling overwhelmed. Good planning, scheduling, and execution is the key. I can do it… otherwise, I’m screwed – lol.
Then I think there’s a Student Council breakfast on Fri… gotta double check. I’m hoping I have nothing scheduled for Sat… then we’ve got a baptism on Sun and an extra day off on Mon! That means J will only be in school Tue/Wed the following week because… TRIP TO CHICAGO! Woohooo! I feel really sad about having to miss movie nite and the appreciation dinner… but… CHICAAAGO CHICAAAGO =) We’re both SO excited!!
Alright… I’m beat! G’nite… (-.- )zzz
