Discipline Update & Freewrite: August 1

Well, this will be Day 3 of not exercising. I hope I don't regress too far.

My pain meds make my skin crawl. Not fun. Not a lot; mostly I can ignore it. But that's definitely going to be part of my interrogation tomorrow.

We're going to try to go to Sunday School today. I picked out an outfit that should be relatively easy to get in and out of.

The Hunk's parents brought over a basket of fruit and goodies before we left for the hospital on Friday. All kinds of fruit, some Pepperidge Farm cookies, and Werther's Originals sprinkled throughout. Tasty tasty! Then when Mom went grocery shopping, she picked up some shortbread cookies AND a Marie Callendar Razzleberry pie (my favorite!) at the store.

I really, really hope I don't regress too far!

I've also been working on my unit plans, and I had another bugaboo come up: how much reviewing and re-teaching will I need for syntax and paragraph structure?

I really can't think of anything else to write about. Weird, kind of - it's been a very eventful week!

Everyone keeps asking how they can help or what they can do, and to be honest, I just don't know. It's not like anyone can make my stitches heal faster or re-engineer my genes so that I can stop getting cancer in the first place. We've got plenty to eat, I'm chugging right along with my unit plans... it's pretty cool.

Also cool - I found out that our whole department has planning together. Woot! First time ever for me. Very excited about that.

Made my word count! Time to nap a bit more before Sunday School. :)


  1. Hey Clix! I'm sorry to hear that your meds add to your discomfort. :( Cookies and pies can sometimes be just the right medicine for that.

    Are you going to join the LHA 15 minutes per day writing group? C'mon! I'm going to give it a go.

    mardie - sending you virtual cookies.

  2. Am I supposed to sign up somewhere? I think I can do that - except for the long walk today :( I hope to get back to my walks in a couple of days though!

    and thanks for the virtual cookies - calorie-free, no less! :D

  3. I don't think you have to sign up or anything like that.
