A coupla things....
First, I just finished my Wii workout with My Fitness Coach. I worked out a few times with it, then got into 'crunch time' with all my assignments due for my last class, and got out of the habit. I thought sure that the virtual coach Maya may let me have it when I logged back in, but she wasn't too rough! Today I did a Core Body workout, and work out I DID! I was huffing and puffing and sweating, and I'm pretty certain that my abs are going to be sore tomorrow. I kept trying to picture myself not being quite so horrified at wearing a bathing suit while I was doing the various crunch combos!
Durn, seems like there was something else I wanted to be sure to blog about and then I lost focus! URG. Hate doing that!
Oh! Now I remember! (Are you still with me?! Of course you are, you too have "Mama Mush" brain after giving birth! You understand!) I am SO Teeeeeed off at the United States Postal Service. I ordered one of the books for the class I'm taking now weeks ago....I mean, at least 3 weeks ago, no exaggeration. Do you think the flippin' thing is here yet?! NOOOOOOO! The other two books I ordered were here in plenty of time. I gave myself a good window of time to get the books in, but alas...here I am, heading to my second class meeting with no text. So therefore, no homework done! And that is not like me in my post-Bachelor's degree state! Now, in college? I'm sure there were some times I went to class unprepared. But I'm not comfortable doing so now! I'm ticked off, and when I called the USPS to ask about it the other day, I got some kind of crap about how I didn't need to call back and be concerned until 14 days yada yada yada, but I'm over that....it has taken way long enough! I'm apparently given permission to be irritated with them after May 15, and durn straight I'm going to be! I really hate that I've already paid for the stinkin' book, or else I'd just cancel the order. NEVER will I order in this fashion from this particular bookseller EVAH AGAIN! The stinky part of it is that it is a brand new book, so none of my friends would have it for me to borrow. I've tried to get copies from my classmates but it just hasn't worked out. Can you feel my frustration??!
And while I'm on the subject of frustrations, I've had two 'incidents' with people being passive-aggressive over the past few days and that is really so. high school! One situation was just immature....mention something, then talk about how you can't talk about it. Whatever. You brought it up, put on your big girl panties and deal with the situation instead of acting like you've got to be private about it after you open your trap! And the other situation...well, let's just try to be a TAD professional in front of children, shall we?? You want to be condescending and irritating, fine...but do it away from my students, k? Until you've tried to TEACH and deal with 17 6/7 year olds all day, don't act as though you're 'above' what I'm doing. Try it for a day or two, and then we'll talk.
OK, sorry, went off there on a tangent. Hi. Remember that nice calm I felt after working out???? I'm trying to.....really I am.....
We were so blessed to have a nice calm weekend, and we don't have any extra afternoon activities until Friday this week! Oh, but that does make the week look less daunting! Funny how you don't miss calm unscheduled weekends until you don't have a few, you know?!
Speaking of, please PRAY some scheduling issues work out for one of our end of school workdays! As it is, I may have class on that day, and I really hope that I don't! It will be my last 'hurrah' to spend time with my coworkers before changing schools, and I really don't want to miss it! I'm gonna talk to my professor about it, and hopefully it can be worked out.
I think that is enough rambling for now! Enjoy your week!
