The best laid plans

Well my plans to post here more often generally didn't pan out as planned. It's been almost a month since I posted. Covid-19 is still here and still bad. Arizona is one of the worst places in the nation for it. Our cases are rising at exponential rates and it's just crazy. Thankfully we are able to stay home and stay safe. Now with summer really kicking in, it's supposed to be 115F today, going out and dashing is not something we enjoy anymore either. So it's a lot of at home time and pool time. I'm still battling the apathy but it is getting better and better so I'm good with that. It is very easy to fall into the whole 'why does it matter' mindset with all that is going on though. That is something that I have to battle every day. 

I'm taking 2 classes at GCU online so that I will be qualified to teach dual enrollment next year. The first class just finished and I'm waiting to see the grade I get in that. The second class is in it's 3rd week and it is hard. It's biochemistry and boy am I struggling.  But I'm actually learning things so that's good. 

Exercise has been nonexistent for the past month. I workout 1 day and then don't for 2 weeks. I can't seem to get the habit going. There is too much time spent hanging in the pool in this heat. I need to get it started. 

School will be starting online this year. The governor has pushed the opening date of school back until August 17th - that's the tentative date to return to the classrooms - so school will begin online on August 5th and then if things go well transition to in person on the 17th. I don't think that will happen myself. I have a feeling we will end up online for the entire semester. At least that's what I'm trying to convince myself of because then it will be easier to take when it happens. 

Okay, as usual I feel better just 'talking' this out. I do need to work on some things, but I have an idea for keeping on track.  I have a planner that is honestly not being used a whole lot because we aren't doing much, but it does have an hourly tracker. I've been color coding the tracker with what I plan to do and that has been working pretty well. Once I kind of set a plan in my head I tend to stick to it. So I'm going to start including in there exercise and the other things I want to do. I will put them in after I've been working for a while which generally means sitting at my computer. Yup, I'll do that. That will work. 

Okay, enough. I've got things to do today.
