Welcome to My Sunday Post!
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.

Before I forget (and I did when this initially posted) I need to ask for some support for my brother’s fundraising efforts. He spent Saturday gaming for Charity – Children’s Miracle Network – and he’s way short of his goal. It’s his first time doing something like this and he’s too shy to ask for donations. So I’m asking for him. I’m not sure how long it’ll stay open, but you can make really small donations and it’s for a free cause. Here’s the link if you’d consider donating. It’d mean the world to me if y’all helped him reach his goal 🙂
I think I’ve finally found my rhythm! This past week I arrived at work every day around 7:20am – which is five minutes before I’m supposed to be there and in HUGE contrast with th 6:45am I had been doing almost daily until recently. And I left work almost every day by 5:30 – also in HUGE contrast with the 6:45 and 7pm I had been doing doing daily. I only did work from home one day this week on Thursday – because lesson plans were due and I hadn’t managed to get them done at work. I made it to the gym two days this week – once for water aerobics and once for zumba. And I blogged every single day! I’m taking my life back and it feels great!
And despite my decreased hours, school is going okay. I’ve learned how to control my classroom for the most part – I still have a couple problem kids but there’s a light at the end of those tunnels. One of my behavior problems has gotten much better – and if I pick up my phone to call grandma, he stops acting up most the time. I’ve had to call her a couple times, but get her on the phone and then he really starts acting right. The other one has been such a problem – and he’s going to have testing done in January (grr! Why does everything take so long?!) – but now mom comes to school with him and when he acts up he’s her problem. She was shocked by his behavior on Friday (the first day of the new system) and he was being good in comparison! It was really great to keep teaching my class while she was in the hallway chasing him and dealing with his screaming instead of me 🙂
Nothing major except that I seem to be coming back – I’m gradually visiting more and more blogs, so hopefully I’ll be by yours soon 🙂 COYER sign ups are just two weeks away so watch for that soon!
So I’m still losing weight – but this week when I weighed in my app alerted me that I’m losing a bit too fast. And I realized I’ve lost liek 20lbs in the past two weeks -which is a lot considering that I haven’t started a new diet or anything. I don’t know if my getting more sleep and getting back to the gym would speed up weight loss, but I’m going to keep an eye on it. I mean, I don’t want to complain since losing weight has typically been very difficult for me, but I also want to be healthy. I still don’t eat much – I just don’t have the appetite. Breakfast is a cereal bar and skim milk, lunch is an Ensure, and dinner is anything from nothing, a glass of wine, a bowl of cereal to a healthy choice dinner or a piece of meat and rice. I eat more on Fridays and Saturdays though. IDK if I should really be worried. I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow because I can’t kick this cold – been up all night coughing the last few days – and I can’t be sick when it’s time for my surgery on the 20th. Normally I wouldn’t go for a cold, but I don’t want my surgery cancelled because of it!
