Lots of "to do's" got done today

November 3rd, 2015 at 06:44 pm

I was able to register for the mandatory class I need for my license. Now I just need to pay the bill, it is due by the end of December. It means I will delay the completion of my certificate program by a semester, but that's ok, since I need this course to stay employed next year.

I checked off a bunch of little homework assignments as well. I'm up to date on my class, now I just need to keep it all together!

Tonight for dinner we had leftovers. We don't end up cooking more than 3 or 4 times a week it seems, we are able to stretch our meals. Not only does that save money on food, it saves time. The kids usually don't say anything about leftovers, assuming they liked the meal the first time around.

I browsed some Christmas activities in the area to plan ahead for possible ticket purchases. I wanted to see A Christmas Carol in Ford Theatre, where Lincoln was assassinated, but the kids were kind of lukewarm about it. When I asked if they wanted to do the Holiday Zoo Lights again, they both responded "yes". I'm fine with that. Tickets for the weekend performances started at like $70 each. Zoo Lights is FREE. We all had a great time there last year.

I'm mentally putting my relationship woes on the backburner, just for now. Ruminating does no one any good. We have an appointment to see a counselor next week, so we have agreed not to make any decisions without exploring that resource, and to just call a truce in the meantime.

I'm looking forward to a time when I'm not juggling so many balls in the air. I don't like so many deadlines and concerns, but I know that this busy time is only temporary, it won't be forever.

    it is just dawning on me who you are and i'm so excited because i often check your old blog to see if you have posted anything - i missed reading your updates and wondered what happened to you. I'm sorry to hear about your relationship problems - i hope you can find some solutions. is your new career direction education-related or a in completely different field? good luck to you!

    I took my grandson to see A Christmas Carol a few years ago, and he didn't appreciate it at all! It was an excellent production, but he just doesn't like plays. My grandkids would definitely prefer something like Zoo Lights.

    Thanks for checking on me! It feels good to have a community of peeps, even if it is just online Smile My new career direction is applied behavior analysis, so it is related to education but I will have a lot more options besides the classroom.
