Three quick things
1. Ribsy lost a pound and a half last week. I won’t be doing the Weight Watchers weigh in until after the New Year, and then I will get back to my weight reports.
2. I went to the emergency room to have a fake heart attack Monday night. It was significantly different from the usual reflux attack, so we were all a little worried. However, after a two day intensive round of cardiac testing, I am pleased that it wasn’t my heart. Yippee! I suspect it is my reflux acting in different ways because I have changed my food and exercise habits lately–eating late and exercising more. So, I need to learn how to manage reflux within new parameters. Dr. Banks and I talk next week. Meanwhile, the highlight of the evening was watching Matrix 2 while jacked up on morphine at 1 am. If this weren’t a family show, I’d recommend you give it a whirl. 🙂
3. We will probably hit 500 ELA students at work this spring. My job is even MOAR intense than usual. Which could have contributed to number 2, although I do try to relax. Honest. Anyway, we have six interviews for new teachers, and I’ve blocked off some time to interview students. This is an amazing thing. I’m so impressed that students have pegged Kirkwood as THE place to come and study English.
I’m moving right along on draft 3, considering. 🙂 I also had a letter from a fan of my old Harry Potter fan fiction, asking for Substance in its original incarnation. Gratifying to be remembered.
With that, I hope to be back sooner rather than later. We live in hope.
