    Afternoon everyone!
    I only got up at like 10:15. It's already 1:16 and I've gotten a few things done! Matt works until 10 tonight so I'm gonna try and find the motivation to do a few more things as well.

    I did a bit of soul searching last night after dealing with some depression the last few days. And have come up with a list of things to do by the end of the month. School is supposed to start back up again on Sept 3rd. I don't know if that's going to happen or if I'll even have a job if it does. But if it does, I want to have this list completed. I'm going to try and tackle one or two things a day. Some can be done immediately while others may take some time but I want to get them done!

    So here's the list:
    - finish writing USS
    - do 1 round of edits on DT
    - start outline for next novel
    - come up with a list of 10 topics to blog about
    - stick to my blogging schedule
    - deep clean kitchen/bathroom/2nd bedroom
    - wash sheets/ALL the towels in the house
    - get bigger dresser for clothes/donate what doesnt fit
    - bug bomb the house(we have a flea problem because of where we live 😡)
    - clean out the front room
    - look over vision board again

    So here are my goals for today:
    - post 😄
    - get oil changed 😄
    - put air in tires(helped a little old lady fill hers up too. She was adorable) 😄
    - go to Walmart 😄
    - write two scenes for USS(the two that somehow didn't save. I want to cry)
    - make a list of 5 blog post topics
    - fold clean clothes
    - actually cook dinner

    I think that's good for today. I'm still feeling a bit down so I don't want to over do it. It'll just make me feel worse tomorrow.

    Have a great day everyone!

      End of 2017: 174.6
      End of 2018: 189.2
      End of 2019: 196.4
      End of January: 194.6

      End of June: 192.2
      End of July: 188.6
      Today: 189.6

      Ongoing plans/ideas behind the cut
      1. Purchases: Look for an "ugly Christmas sweater" and a long-haired doll at thrift stores. Practice French braiding. Go to used bookstore and look for On Writing (Stephen King), Dying for a Paycheck (Robin Hardman), The Prince (tr. Tim Parks, Russell Price, or Robert Adams), The Secret Adversary (Christie).
      2. E2: What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Create vocabulary lists for each unit that come from the texts used: Animal Farm, Julius Caesar, Wes Moore, I Am Malala. Find a way to incorporate changing words from one part of speech to another. Students need to know how to review multiple sources and synthesize information in order to draw a conclusion. Need practice with the difference between transitions and overlapping (at end of paragraph - "another issue is Y" vs "there are other issues besides X"). Quit using "in conclusion" and "I believe" and other writing-about-my-writing phrases. Confusion between direct/indirect objects and prepositional phrases. Use the UDHR and the Declaration of Independence to study paraphrasing; use that to front-load Machiavelli and how to deal with challenging texts. Confusion between everyday / every day and similar constructions.
      3. E1: Need practice with quoting & paraphrasing sources, identifying claims that would need support, use of last names for reference, and capitalization practice (common/proper nouns, titles). Difficulty using possessive nouns in their own writing. Honors: practice subject/object pronouns (my friend and I / my friend and me). Poetry: Revise "Songs are Poetry" handouts.
      4. Curriculum Development: Writing mini-unit. Review scholarly research on 5PE. (I think I can have this as an intro to the research unit so that they also get exposure to how quotes are integrated and cited.) Parallel structure; use of emotional language, specific detail. Use "Write About a Pebble" lesson from Atwell. How long should each unit take? Do research on characteristics: curiosity, persistence, resilience, creativity, responsibility, optimism, courage, integrity, authenticity, leadership, self-awareness, humility, compassion - others? Include grammarly check on essays! Review assessments. What is the purpose for each unit? What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Schedule assessments for Fall 2019; plan out return times. Write 1 reflection weekly; type one in Classroom by Weds. Copy-paste to discussion board for comments due Friday. Homework: Online journal Mon due Tue; Reflection Tue due Wed; C&P journal in class Wed; Comments Thu due Fri. Bonus if you are the first response; further bonus if you respond to comments on your post. Grammar practice Mon & Wed; quiz Fri.
      5. Professional Development: Write blog post weekly. Comment on 3 posts each week - Tu Th Sun? Check with PSC. Talk with Z about articles and/or conference proposals. NOTE: ATTENDED PRE FLEX DAY.
      6. Medical: Dentist call to schedule cleaning. PCP July 15 10:30. ObG schedule for October. PCP - allergy shots? left toe joints. Sleep center 778 3316.
      7. Theater: 1984.
      8. House: Crawl space repairs. After that - siding? Or perhaps bathroom floor.
      9. Fun: Open beading on Thursdays. Coloring at library on Tuesday. Put jewelry away. Edney Hack Nights alt Weds. ASL? Spanish/Portuguese practice? Practice piano. ROL Secret Adversary. Buy bike rack for car.
      10. Volunteering ideas: Theater. Library. Animal shelter. Community Kitchen. Emerge Georgia training.
      11. Family: Google Hangout. Dinners?
      12. Other: Practice hair braiding with D. Check on appts for drs. Remind D to ask his dad about the table and check with home repair contractors. START BLOGGING AGAIN. 3 posts/week? Create test for MLA format. Create test for infographics and visual information. Therapy exercises: lunges, push-ups, ankle lifts, box jumps, plank. Remember that M does not like surprises! Check dates of classes and update semester plan. She Should Run vision statement. Update standards on board. When to change bulletin board?

      WFTY: Progress.

      @TerriRichardson112 , I also dislike food shopping now. I've not yet cracked how to wear a mask without my glasses steaming up. I try moving them slightly to help, but they're vari-focals, so then I can't see properly :)

      @Snowflake1968 , love your cartoon :) You missed out birthdays! We are hoping to have a family birthday meal at the weekend, I think the weather will be good enough to sit outside. First birthday celebration since lockdown began, and I expect it will upset my diet :)

      JFT Wednesday 5th August

      Log everything yes
      Stay in the green yes
      Back exercises did the standing ones
      Foot exercises yes
      5 fruit and veg 4
      Walk if it dries up 35 mins and 20 mins
      Accept what I cannot change Trying!

      Did a daytime walk and a short bedtime one. I thought I had time to get home before the rain began, but I met several people to chat to and was held up a little bit, so got thoroughly soaked. Why is it you meet people on the day you haven't washed your hair (or even brushed it!) before you go out? And I met my hairdresser too lol.

      Frustrating day trying to get in touch with the hospital. The item I handed in for my Dad (an hours drive to do so) has gone missing?!

      @pridesabtch I'm so sorry you had a bad day! Don't let it get you down though! Today is brand new. Pick yourself up, shake off the dirt, and start again!

      @mytime6630 Good job not getting the chips! Just don't eat all the pretzels at once now! Lol. Enjoy those margaritas!

      @littleblackskirt I've had to walk home on the rain a few times. It's not so bad if it's warm out. But if it's even slightly chilly it's downright miserable. Lol. Hopefully you don't catch a cold!

      @cesse47 I always love your little jokes at the top of your posts! Lol. They're the best! Good luck on the bedroom!

      @teigansdad I take it you won the race? Haha. Awesome job!

      @SERmom3 I need to look over our family budget too! Our spending has gotten outrageous!
