Good Habits - August 25

So every class begins with a quickwrite. And I'm supposed to write along with them. Does that mean I'm supposed to write for the first 10 minutes of every class period? That's an AWFUL lot of writing. Plus also I'm supposed to do attendance during that time and make sure the door is locked and my lesson plans are posted and whatnot.

I'm perpetually tired. I'm definitely not looking forward to chemo on Friday. Right now I'm just feeling overwhelmed with everything I'm supposed to be remembering to do. I also need to contact the cheer, football, and cross-country coaches about times for their meets and I don't even know who they are. *sigh*

Today in Journalism II we are going to plan out our yearbook pages, contact our advertisers, and choose the teachers we're going to contact for beats. I need to collect writer's notebooks tomorrow and Friday. I'll have my sub pick them up during that last class and then give them to one of the teachers coming to the hafla. (They don't know it's going to be a hafla yet.)

I went for a walk in the park this evening! Plus I packed my lunch and it was a salad. I did pretty good today. I just finished up my WoW jewelcrafting daily quest, and now after I turn it in I'm gonna go soak in the tub.


  1. I don't know, Clix . . . Last year when a colleague of mine was going through chemo treatments for b-cancer, she was off work - completely. Not saying it can't be done, work and chemo, but it certainly isn't easy. Write at least one of the 10 minute periods. Don't think you have to do it for all of them or for all of the 10 minutes. Take care of yourself.


  2. Well, that wasn't just the chemo. That's just.. in general. After the first set, it just starts feeling redundant.

    Had another chemo session yesterday and went to a bellydance party that evening. I did take a nausea pill before bed and I'll ... oo, I'll take another now, since I'm overdue! But I didn't really feel I needed either.

    I just hate sitting around. There's no way to avoid it at chemo... you've got the meds dripping into you through an IV for HOURS... and all you can do is sit there. :P If you go potty you hafta unplug the machine and take it with you, so that adds to the time. Fortunately I'm a teacher and I'm good at holding it! ;D

    But as much as I hate sitting around, I would go batty taking off from work. I mean, if I feel sick and I can SLEEP instead of sitting, no problem. Hasn't happened yet. ;)

    I'd end up cleaning the house from boredom. And heck, I've already got cancer... no sense punishing myself more! hahaha!
