|Working from home|
It's the end of the week and I don't teach again until Monday. That's a 3-day weekend, every week. Well not really as tomorrow I have to do my weekly shop, go to the post office, clean the house, cook for shabbat, and do some grading. And on Sunday I have to meet with students in college, But no actual teaching means no pressure and it feels like a mini holiday every Thursday afternoon.
Almost three weeks into my no sugar campaign. It's going well and I've not cheated once. I'll probably blog about when I've reached the one full month mark.
The US elections are over and I can have my facebook feed back, full of nice conversations with friends and acquaintances about all sorts of other things.
A Broken Tablet
It's new. We only got it about seven weeks ago, She dropped it on the tile floor and the screen shattered. So we have to get it fixed and we will, And DD is going to pay for the repair out of her closely guarded pocket money that she counts and recounts but will not spend except for in an emergency situation like this one. Yeah I'm annoyed but on the other hand, shes stopped carrying the blasted thing around like an extension of her arm. She has got the old laptop in her bedroom to play on but at least that doesn't come into the living room or my bedroom with her. So yes, I'm cheerful about it. We may even make some more progress on the reading front.
Whilst I'm not obsessive about the blog stats like I once was, it was irritating to drop from the top 500 to almost 1,500 in less than a year. These past three months I've been clawing my way back and with an 140-something gain this month I'm almost back into the top 1,000. Not that it makes any difference whatsoever and I don't even try to compete with the new generation of professional bloggers and vloggers, but still, I have my pride.
There is no 6. I was just kidding.
I'm linking up with all the good people with R2BC over at Mummy from the Heart.
