Thanks everyone. :-)
I'm still here. Last week was kind of a mess, with Kate breaking down and then my birthday causing me to feel like I needed to eat like an idiot. But I'm back on track this week, no worse for wear.
I didn't get to lift at all last week, but I'm back on it as of yesterday. So today I'm a bit sore here and there. But, I made all of my reps on the linear progression, so it's onward and upward.
I've been working a lot on school work. It's funny to try to say, because I'm both a teacher and a student, so I think people won't know which one I'm talking about. This time I'm talking about work in the classes I'm attending as a student. See, that was a long sentence and I'm not typing that every time I talk about doing school work. I'll have to work on terminology that can more easily differentiate my student work from my teacher work.
Anyway, I've been doing gobs of reading and writing papers this week. It's an online university, and the classes are set up to work at your own pace. The entire syllabus is there, and you do the things and upload the papers as you get them done. It's organized in a week-by-week structure, but there's no reason not to work ahead. It happens I have a lot of time on my hands these days. Right now I think I'm almost two weeks ahead of the schedule. I'm a little concerned that I'm missing something by plowing through it so quickly, but I'm getting high marks on everything I turn in. Anyway, I'm having fun with it. The classes are more interesting than I thought they might be. So that's nice.
I think that's about it for today. I hope you're all doing well. I'm afraid I'm quite behind on everyone's threads.
