    Morning! Anyone else paying attention to the Iowa results? [Not getting political...only interested in the process]. I stayed up a little late last night hoping to see something, but even now this morning, they still don’t have results in. Seems like a big failure of the system. I’ll be interested to see if any changes come out of this.

    - Subbing today🟢
    - Chorus rehearsal tonight🟢
    - Laundry🟢
    - Dishes🟢
    - Stay green🔴 -over by 50. Oh well!
    - Exercise🔴
    - Pick up one piece of trash while out🔴
    - Dinner at dining room table🔴

    Subbing yesterday was “challenging”.😬 They are a tough class and I just agreed to do it again today. Hardly worth the money, but I’m determined to make this work! I’ve had other difficult classes and they’ve gotten better over time. Hopefully I can say the same about this group soon!

    JFT Tuesday:
    - subbing again today (this is becoming a full time job!)
    - Music rehearsal tonight
    - Need to organize my music
    - Laundry
    - Dishes
    - Stay green
    - Exercise
    - Pick up one piece of trash while out

    MIA as it’s my busy 1st week of thy e month, and time to comment has been scarce.

    It’s great to see the returning regulars, and a few newbies.

    I have been plugging away at it, and having a modicum of success. Weigh loss seems harder as one nears maintenance, but I will persevere until I reach 145, and then consolidate my progress.

    @Faebert That’s a lot of birthdays to negotiate. You are doing so well after your op. Enjoy the celebrations.
    @pridesabtch (((hugs))) glad to know that your flu is on the way out. I had a couple of off days last week, and then realised that the bad choices were making things worse. My body was rebelling by making me feel even more unwell. Once I started eating properly again I felt much better.

    Rats!!! Just got a low battery warning so will transfer to my tablet before this phone dies.

    @azulvioleta6 So sorry that your mum is down. (((Hugs))) I hope the results of the biopsy are good.

    -February goal :smiley:
    -Fold laundry :disappointed:
    -Figure out dinner :smiley:
    -Log all my food :smiley:
    -Write 2 chapters :disappointed:
    -Bring up trash can :smiley:
    -Look over bills :disappointed:

    I think that's it for today.

    Yesterday was a bit of a bust but I managed a few things. I FINALLY cleaned out my car. My backseat was getting ridiculous with the amount of stuff was in it. So that's done at least. Now I just have to vacuum it. I will probably do that over the weekend.

    I got an appointment for Matt to see a hand specialist on Friday. I told Matt he would just have to suffer through it until then. Lol. He was an idiot and he knows he was an idiot so he agreed. Lol

    I have an insta shift I forgot until this morning and I cant find my insulated bag. :cold_sweat: So I have to go buy an emergency one to hold me over until I can figure out where I put mine. I don't think I'm really going to get any orders today though. It's been really slow the last two days. I'm kind of hoping that I don't.

    School has been interesting today. The kids are in rare form. I just found out this morning that my student has been texting his old teacher from the school he went to last year. I think that might be what's been causing his erratic behaviour. I'm pretty sure his current teacher emailed Dad so hopefully something will happen at home. The teacher actually confiscated his phone until lunch and then will probably take it back after. I hope he does.

    Okay, goals.
