Yikes and Woe! It's a Pity Party!

I'm feeling sort of failure-like lately.

Work: My homebound student is way behind, and I need to go over there more often and help her catch up. We got off to a late start and keep lagging farther behind all the time. I need to go to CWHS to spend more time mentoring.

Home: My house is still a disaster. I got rid of some clutter but brought more stuff into the house. It's a candidate for Clean Sweep just as its been for years. There are some things I can't find, too.

Health: Doing better here with meals and keeping my blood sugar down but haven't walked the last two days. I have plans to walk tomorrow. I get tired of eating four or five meals a day (small meals or snacks) and hate sticking my finger. I wish I could just eat two meals a day, but this works and that didn't.

Family: I'm the worst here because I don't go see my mother and daughter often enough but do talk to them on the phone several times a week. I don't see my son and his family often enough either and need to learn more about autism, so I can help them more.

See what I mean? I need to do better in all aspects of my life.

Oh. I had a bad day with my students too.
High schooler was read the riot act by his Dad so I got a sullen and p-ed student. What did I do???

Then the middle school came in with tummy problems. We took his temperature - nope, so we got to keep him. I read him 22 pages of our novel before he perked up and started to work.

Tonight I worked thru a chapter of physics for the high schooler and if he doesn't appreciate it tomorrow I'm going to feed him the book...

Feel better :-)

Sometimes we all need a pity party for ourselves.

Tomorrow's another day, says Miz Scarlet (or words to that effect).

Who knows, they may not even get the company of a positive soul such as you the rest of their day.Just your energy makes a difference. My day always shines a lot brighter just hearing from you no matter what you have to share.
hugs and kissses-

To My Darling Auntie Flame -

You are WAY more fabulous than you'll ever know. Your suggestion inspired my new weekly "Friday Weigh-In" post. Go see!!

For tomorrow, just try to do A LITTLE better at those things you need to work on. Before you know it you'll be doing great and feeling wonderful.

Love You! HATE that you're feeling bad!!
