Now Teaching: Week 43

"Now Teaching: Week 43" is also "Now Parenting: Week 2"

On Sunday, nearly didn’t get a star, but forced it. Slept an hour in the evening then two hours overnight, to get through (most) 4U Summatives. Sleepwalking through the day. On Monday, got five hours sleep in anticipation of a busy Tuesday, which it was - didn’t leave school until almost 10pm, only to come home to finish mark calculations. Got about three hours sleep, then into the report card comments and final adjustments. Finished a bit before 9am.

Took Alexandra to school that morning, which went pretty well. Stopped by the Grad garden party but mostly just got questions about marks. That night, slept in my own bed - had been sleeping in the basement to ensure a stretch of uninterrupted sleep though suspect Anne-Lise got more sleep than me overall. Thursday was busy because I had to get things done in time for another doctor visit.

Anyway, somehow it all got done. Without crying. Even got some signatures in the yearbook on Commencement day, which is important to me, having the tangibles. Yay. Now, a heat wave, and time with the little one. She’s been registered for birth and benefits now. Some items have already come through the mail for her (from relatives, and from SirWil family). Oh, and I’ve tried to fix the faucet, mostly unsuccessfully.

Item counts run Sunday (June 24) to Saturday (June 30).

Step Count 2017: About 64,350 (22 stars).
STEP COUNT 2018: Over 66,600. 14 stars.
Sunday and Tuesday were largely grading, with under 7000 steps. Four other days were over 10k.

-Tried to get all projects done, emailed for CompSci resources.

SchoolMail 2017: 52 (4 sent)
SCHOOL EMAIL 2018: 72 New (21 sent)
So that’s 195194 days, even though it should be 196194. I don’t know where I went wrong.
