    @HEGoddard0928 - Hugs to you, I hope you have a better day today. How is Matt feeling now?

    @AJB1014 - I hope you have a better day today. I've read that about same storm, different boats. It's a very apt analogy as no one is exactly the same as the next person. For me personally there hasn't been much change except not being able to see my family. I have worked right through. My husband was supposed to go back to work on April 27th for the season, but that didn't happen and he has been told it won't happen this year. That is our biggest concern right now. The government subsidies are covering his partial wages but we don't know how long that will last.

    I went for a walk last night with my new shoes, my feet felt so much better, but my calves hurt. Hopefully I can get a few walks in this weekend and the pain will ease. I ate over my calorie allowance again yesterday, but managed to only have 1 popsicle for an evening treat. I will have to continue to buy these. I wish I could buy a box of just c orange and cherry but not grape. I am saving the grape for the Grands as I don't like them.

    I have to leave work early today to head into the city to go to the bank and make a deposit for work. The local branch that we use had a sewage backup and is temporarily closed.

    I am looking forward to the weekend, it's been a long week.

    End of January: 194.6

    End of March: 193.8
    End of April: 192.6
    End of May: 191.8
    Today: 191.8

    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.

    JFT Saturday 27th June

    Log everything
    Stay in the green
    Back exercise
    5 fruit and veg
    Walk? Weather is bad
    Print off new instructions for business, make lists
    Do small jobs

    A shame it's raining today as Saturdays are when family would visit in my garden. A day for indoor jobs.
    I need to prep and make sure I'm prepared for my little business opening back up next week. It's becoming quite expensive buying cleansers, protective gear and other things required. I feel very very responsible for making sure my premises are virus free and people will be safe. It will be hard work. (I know, all of you who have been working throughout will be laughing at me right now :) )

    @AJB1014, thank you. I don't think I've ever mentioned it, my business is a holiday let apartment, not a store.
    I usually clean it thoroughly when guests leave on a Saturday, obviously now I will have to clean then disinfect everything. Holidays are allowed from 4th July. The government guidelines are long! I have to use cleansers which have been tested on coronavirus, which I couldn't find in my town, thank goodness for the internet! I haven't been able to travel to the apartment since March, so will have to take shower heads apart and disinfect, so there is no chance of guests catching Legionnaires Disease. I feel very responsible for providing a clean and safe environment, but am also aware that guests could actually bring the virus with them from other parts of the country, so need to protect myself too. I would prefer not to open up, but have had no income while it's been closed, so it makes sense to accept the summer lets. It seems people are desperate to go on holiday!

    Anyway, I'll be so busy there will be no time to eat, so Saturdays may be very good dieting days :)

      Fri 19: 149.4 🤓 I was wondering if this uptick is connected to the fact that I have started interval walking/jogging to get my steps in. I did a little research, and sure enough, there it was, in black and white. When you start jogging, the muscles hold on to fluid for muscle repair. Can be several lbs, and it sorts itself out when the body acclimatises, so I'm sticking with it until it settles down.
      😂 Just when you think you have it all sorted, one little change throws it up in the air again. I'm guessing that this is temporary.

      @littleblackskirt Hope all goes well when your business reopens. It must have been a stressful few months for you.
      @mytime6630 It's lovely to see you posting again. I understand your dilemma, but, as you say, your concern has to be with your husband for now. (((Hugs)))

      JFT, 6/24/20

      - JFT :smiley:
      - 3 bullet points on my outline :smiley::smiley:6 actually! A few of them aren't fully fleshed out yet in the outline but I know what I want them to be about so I'm not worried about that.
      - 2 mini goals :smiley:
      - actually cook something for dinner :smiley:I only sauteed some frozen pierogies in butter. Lol. But it's still better than take out!

      So Matt still isn't feeling great. His stomach isn't happy with him but he's been able to work which is a blessing. The next few days are going to have to be back to a really bland diet. Lots of plain chicken and veggies and maybe a little bit of starch from potatoes or rice. This has happened before and sometimes it has lasted a few days. I'm hoping it ends soon. I hate it when he feels like this because there's really nothing I can do.

      We got out new couch delivered yesterday! We got it at a furniture thrift shop. It's wonderful! Lol. The delivery guy wasn't sure he was going to be able to get it to us yesterday but he did at like 5:30. Lol. We LOVE it. It has a recliner at each end, is kinda firm but still comfortable, and is made of great material. To get the previous one out Dad, Matt, and I stood on the back of it and pushed until it broke. Lol. We all almost tumbled forward when the wood gave way. It was really funny.

      I am in a much better mood than I was a few days ago. I also spent most of yesterday sleeping. I'm not sure why. But it was glorious! I ended up taking 2 3-hour naps! Lol. One in the morning and one in the afternoon. Lol. I got up with Matt at 6 this morning too and then went back to sleep for another hour and a half before running to the store. Now I'm awake and plan to stay that way!

      Okay! Enough of my novel!

      JFT, 6/27/20

      - JFT :smiley:
      - 2 mini goals
      - 6 outline bullets
      - Chicken, peas, and rice for dinner

      Really struggling with excess calories for last three days... partially due to vacation, partially because I eat when I’m stressed and also I have no self control when it comes to sweets...

      Luckily I have stayed very active... but the math is the math. More calories in than out will result in pants getting tight

      Goals for Saturday
      Already did a long trail Ride w my buddy
      Now only goal is to record my calories and end up green for today
      No chocolate
      Choose fruits
      Beer only if hang w friends
