It's a beautiful, warm Saturday here in the Midwest. I've already taken my bike ride. I've been keeping on the program for a week and a half now and I have to say I feel great. I can't believe how much more clear-minded and less worrisome I feel when I do what is good for me. Still have the moment here and there but for the most part I really like me when I'm treating my self well. Why can't I do it all the time??
A week and a half left of summer school. I still think the little buggers are precious and all but I'm ready for a break.
Same thing with grad classes. Two more class nights and then I'm free. This semester we were assigned a student and had to assess them, consider their strengths and weaknesses and design a plan for them. We will use the plan to tutor them as part of our fall class. My little boy is very quiet and shy. I'll be meeting with his parents on Monday to present the assessment report to them. The student is from a small town near my small town. It turns out the boy's step-dad went to school with my brother and his reading teacher at school is the mother of someone I went to school with and had a major crush on. Small world.
My mom finally went to the doctor. She probably has gall bladder problems. She has to go in for some further scans but I think we are all extremely relieved to have some sort of diagnosis.
E and family left Thursday for a vacation resort in Texas. I can't remember where. Can't wait for July when they'll be back and I'll have some free time to spend with my favorite girls.
Last night I went to the fabulous Fox theater with some friends from school and saw.....
I was totally blown away!!! I feel as though a fundamental belief from my childhood has been shaken! Good and evil will never seem the same. Wicked Witch of the West NOT evil? Glinda not entirely GOOD? I was fascinated by all the twisters and turns and little hints and inside jokes alluding to what I know of The Wizard of Oz. I could watch it again and again. It might edge out Phantom as my favorite musical.
They have been working all week at mowing, raking and chopping the alfalfa in the field behind my house and the sweet, sweet smell has been wafting in my windows all week. One of those things you don't realize you enjoy so much until it happens the first time in the early summer. Now, I'm going to catch up with all my blogging friends, enjoy a magazine from cover to cover and do some homework.
Life is good, good, good!
