What to do, what to do.....

Well yesterday turned out nothing like I planned so I really didn't get much of anything done. We needed to run to Costco to stock up the snack cart for school. So we went there and then ran to school to drop everything off. Last week the hallway floors were supposed to be waxed, and they were. But we discovered that they also waxed the science rooms and the art room. Which means that everything had been removed from the rooms so they could get to the floor. No one was expecting that. So thankfully, Hubby grabbed some boys who were practicing to help and they moved all the tables and chairs back into he classrooms. But, we weren't expecting that and it ended up taking about 2 hours longer than we planned. By the time we got home it was almost 2pm and with our head colds we were kind of wiped out. It was the most physical activity we had done in over a week. So, yeah, yesterday didn't go as planned. 

The good news is that we do not have Covid. Yay!!! We got the message yesterday that our tests were negative. That is a relief. I kind of knew it, but it's nice to get confirmation. 

As I talked about yesterday, I've been searching for a word to focus on this year. I thought that I had settled on the word INTENTION yesterday. That word means a lot to me as I have lived so very much of my life just going with the flow. Living with intention is something that I aspire to. But then I read this on Facebook this morning: 

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.

This spoke to me so much. It hit me hard. Something I've been struggling with lately is enough. Having enough. Doing enough. Wanting enough. Appreciating what I have. Trying to stay away from acquiring things. So I'm thinking my word for this year will be Enough. Now that I'm thinking about it though, could this word possible be a limiter for me? Is Enough a good word or will I use it to limit things? That's enough working out for today. That's enough avoiding alcohol for today. I'm thinking this might not work. I will need to let this marinate in my brain for a while before I fully commit to it. Though I do like the poem a whole lot. Intention still calls to me. Okay, I'm going to let this all sit for today and see how it develops in my brain. I know that my brain will work on it while I'm busy doing other things.

Now, back to the title of this post, what to do? I've stepped back from the amount of reading I will do this break, essentially I'm done with the reading. I have the first units of my chemistry and biology classes set from phenomena all the way through the summative task. I could start working on the next units but I have a Zoom tomorrow on this topic that I want to do first before I try to move on. Maybe today I will work on the actual organization of things. I have to get my planner ready for Monday so I can take notes on all the classes. I want to get my binder organized and get my notebooks set up. Oh, I also need to work on the Google Classroom. I want to have some things set up to post so that I don't have to think about it. I'm determined to master the Google Classroom this semester.

Okay, I've rambled enough. I need to get more coffee and go read or something for a little bit.

End of the year
