    @littleblackskirt - Hugs to you, it's a tough decision but I'm sure you'll make the right one. I was told when we were looking for my Mom to go with the smell test. If you smell urine or feces you know that the residents aren't being taken care of promptly. I don't know if you're allowed to do tours now or not though which sucks.

    Thank you. We are not allowed to visit the homes, in fact just this week our covid rules have become stricter again. Luckily I have been in the homes in the past and I know they don't smell. Just unfortunate that I can't meet the staff.

    Chilly this morning, the car window was iced up. Took me by surprise, and I haven't brought in any tender plants. It's too soon to be this cold, I hate being cold in winter!

    I thought I posted goals yesterday but it looks like I didn't. Darn.

    PT kicked my *kitten* last night. I woke up a little while ago and still can't really lift my arms! It's crazy!

    I'm too tired and headachy right now to really update anything. I'll just say that yesterday we had our first restrained takedown of a student in class.

    Today I will:

    - past
    - work
    - take care of animals am/pm
    - PT
    - pick up clothes
    - COOK DINNER!!!!!!

    End of July: 188.6
    End of August: 189.8
    Today: 192.0

    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. Unit plan for research (Idea for regular: comparing same story on sites with different biases).
    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.
    6. Medical: Dentist call to schedule cleaning. ObG schedule for October. When is re-up with ortho? Schedule PCP for same day.
    7. Theater: ???
    8. House: 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: Book group. Dinners?
    12. Writing: Blog post: Running, Racism and Rum: Learning to Handle Discomfort. Fanfic: Create a scene list for the Batgirl story. Finish the cafe scene for the Titans story.
    13. 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. 3 posts/week? Create test for MLA format. Create test for infographics and visual information. Therapy exercises: squats, 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. Weight up. No likey. Too much snacky.

    For Wednesday. Keep working on self discipline. Self discipline is the key to realizing my objectives

    1900 calories: 1747
    Work out 80 minutes: 84 minutes including a 2.65 mile walk
    Exercise self discipline and focus on health / safety for retirement and beyond: made good choices and overcame the thought of not working out
    Support my bride: Easy to do
    Eat dinner at the table and walk after dinner, both unplugged: dinners are enjoyable with the two of us, no tv and no phones. Bride still isn’t up to the walk but I went for .5 mile around the block unplugged. Nice evening. Stayed active for another 30 minutes before settling into the couch

    For Thursday: self discipline is forgoing short term pleasure for long term self respect.

    1900 calories
    Work out 35 minutes
    Make good decisions and focus on my health and flexibility for retirement and beyond
    Support my bride
    Eat dinner at the table and walk afterwards. Do both unplugged

    @TerriRichardson112 - That sounds like a lovely walk. I have begged and pleaded for my husband to walk with me but he won't.

    @HEGoddard0928 - That sounds like a really tough day.

    I had a good evening last night visiting with the Grands and our eldest. When I got back from borrowing our daughter's car I ended up texting with my youngest daughter most of the evening. It was nice to connect.

    This weekend is also a virtual version of an annual 5K I have walked in since it started in 1999. Guess the organizers realized some of us still want to participate in events. There's no swag & no fee, and that's fine by me. We can post our finish times online.

    I am also registered for two 5K races IN PERSON in Oct. events that I have done before. There are new rules for corral starts, social distancing & face coverings that I am happy are in place. We'll see how this goes.

    6) Participate in race events ~ have planned 7 5Ks and 2 10Ks at minimum = Frenzy on the Fox 5K 49:36 ave. pace 15:29 / Seroogy's Valentine 5K 46:26.7 ave. pace 14:47 / Badger State Brewing 10K virtual race w/ dog on 4/2/20 1:44:16 ave. pace 16:33 / Prevention virtual 5K Fun & Fit Team on 5/2/20 I walked 3.48 mi w/ dog in 1:01:10 ave. pace 17:33 / RonaRunOff 5/16/20 virtual walk 5.08 miles with dog in 1:23:15 ave. pace 16:23 / 100 Miles Challenge fundraiser (per fitness tracker) & completed 5/18/20 / Bellin Run 10K virtual race w/ dog on 6/6/20 1:41:03 ave. pace 16:14 dog definitely slows my "race pace" / Hope Isn't Canceled virtual 10K w/ dog 8/29/20 1:43:10 ave. pace 16:36

      @TiffanyPe17 - 2 week old baby, congratulations! Boy or Girl?

      Thank you! We had our second little girl, and I have to admit that I am absolutely in love with her ❤️❤️

      I love babies 🙂 i have 3 girls myself! Although mine are 6, 4 and 2. Although all the ladies on here were on my last pregnancy journey with me, so Casey gets a lot of mentions lol!

      I cant believe you're doing 2 mile walks only 2 weeks later! Thats amazing!

      I was still recovering taking lots of painkillers 2 weeks after mine!
      How.old is your eldest daughter? X
