Now Teaching: Week 34

Busy week, in retrospect. So some forgiveness for not much in the writing department (lemon notwithstanding). The lump is a lipoma on the muscle. At work, have been told 6 Math... which didn’t hold up last year, but hopefully that won’t happen again. No word yet on my voluntary reduction in September. Got the snow tires off the car on my birthday, also found a Disney Princess comic backlog while in the East end. Gift from Anne-Lise after we got home from dinner on Friday. She had a surprise shower on Saturday. Aside, my weight’s going up, I need to stop binging on chips or peanuts.

Now Teaching: Week 33

Monday there was so much ice, I had two classes of one student and first class had none. Caught up in everything. Then over the week, report cards got done, and almost all of the snow melted. At no point was I pulling out my hair. Weird. Meanwhile, my stats have devolved into decimals, so maybe I should write.

Now Teaching: Week 32

Things aren’t looking so bad. Report cards are due in this week, but I spent the week catching up in marking, to the point where I just have some quizzes to look at this weekend. I might even be able to handle some writing for the first time in a couple weeks soon. I’ve also subscribed to YouTube channels, what with CA being on fire. Oh, and I have an ultrasound this week to figure out what’s on my arm, a cyst, a schwannoma, or something else.

Now Teaching: Week 31

I may possibly be in a state of just taking things day by day. Much like last year, the lawn is becoming visible. I did manage to catch up in most web serials. My dad’s surgery went fine. Oh, and I came out about the pregnancy to the school via the data surveys, now running early.
