    Good morning! Yesterday was both good and bad. My boss gave me a raise and asked me to look into health insurance he can offer me as an employer. I have my own but it would be so much nicer to get it through my job!

    Alex's boss went on vacation and before he left Alex had given him a breakdown of the money he still owes him. Yesterday Alex went and picked up his check and it was just his normal check for Friday.. without the back pay!!!! 😡😡

    @Snowflake1968 it's funny you say that because I'm always jealous of the pictures with snow!

    @jeschepp they were sooooo good but yes, very rich, I could only eat 3 😂

    Yesterday 2/18:

    1. Log all food😁
    2. Stay within calorie goal😁
    3. Finish work at 5:20😔
    4. Do workout😔 ended up working late

    JFT 2/19:

    1. Log all food
    2. Stay within calorie goal
    3. Finish work at 5:20
    4. Do workout

    Scale goals
    End of 2017: 174.6
    End of 2018: 189.2
    End of 2019: 196.4
    End of January: 194.6
    Today: 198.2

    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. PB usernames 6 digits, no 19 or 20s, no birthdates. 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 Apr 30 8 AM but check on meetings and RS. Onco Apr ???. PCP Schedule for July. ObG schedule for October. PCP - allergy shots?
    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 new bikes and bike rack for car.
    10. Volunteering ideas: Theater. Library. Animal shelter. Community Kitchen. Emerge Georgia training.
    11. Family: Find cousin photos.

    WFTY: Progress. *sigh* Everything sucks right now.

    Added my shamrock above. Not sure what makes more sense; quoting it and adding my own or tagging Terri 🤷‍♀️

    TUESDAY:
    - Track everything 🟢
    - Stay green🟢
    - Skiing today!🟢

    Yesterday was great! I spent most of my day on the bunny hill with my youngest, but she improved so much! She’s ready to try a bigger trail, but she didn’t want to get on the chairlift this time. Next time for sure! I did get to ski some big trails with my older two as well. We’ve put in so much work over the years getting them independent on the slopes it’s finally starting to pay off!

    JFT WEDNESDAY:
    - Track everything
    - Stay green
    - Pack up the condo we’re staying at and head home
    - Lots of laundry when we get back

    Good luck HEGoddard! I had a tumor the size of a basketball with another the size of an orange removed about ten years ago. Make sure you keep moving through recovery as your doctor allows--it really helps.
