Sunday Report Card
Sunday, February 27th, 2011

Psst! See the bottom of this post for my “Dress Elvis” winner! ~DD

It’s uncanny how accurate my horoscopes have been lately.

This was mine for Friday. Notice the part I highlighted? Traffic might be clogged… Friday, I had a doctor’s appointment in Little Rock—normally an hour and fifteen minute drive. But some poor trucker rolled his oil tanker on the freeway, which closed all lanes in both directions. Drivers were forced to take little back roads, which then clogged those roads all the hell up! It took me three and a half hours to get to Little Rock. I missed my lab appointment and then was five minutes late for the doctor appointment and had to reschedule. If only I’d believed! I shoulda stayed home.

And then there’s yesterday’s…

That’s me—“overwhelmed.” But I’ll talk about the work in a minute. Here’s today’s question:

Do you read your horoscope? Has yours ever influenced you to change something?

This week, I really wanted to be coming up on the end of the short novella and the the Cat Tails chapter, but I’m at roughly 60% on both. Friday killed me—the long drive, and then I had to wait in Little Rock for Hazmat to clear the freeway. So I brainstormed with my sister who was there to chaperone for a wrestling team. It was productive, but I didn’t get any pages done. It killed my momentum. I do however intend to finish both by Tuesday so I can wrap them up for February and start something new!

The winner (by random number generator) of my “Dress Elvis” contest is…Rachel Firasek! Congrats, Rachel, and be sure to send me your snail mail addy!

    Today was very draining.

    I was given a new three hour class from 4:30 to 7:30 (which I am actually rather happy about, since it mains they are less inclined to fire me), but that was at the end of the day.

    Let me tell you about the rest of it.

    My first class was at Yanqiao today from eight to nine thirty and I had a class after that in another facility so I literally had to hoof it to the next school.

    After my second class, I took the subway to see my firned Wei for lunch and spent a pleasant hour with him, before I had to run back for my next class.

    THIS WAS MY WORST PART OF THE DAY.

    It started off okay enough with me playing charades with them, but for some reason, they began to kick me in the butt every time my back was turned. As the Chinese teacher was not there (not completley his fault, he is over worked and takes a break whenever he can), they had no problem disregarding my orders. On top of that, I was so distracted I ended up using permanent marker on the black board :-?

    I was GLAD when that class was over.

    How are your deadlines? Do you think you will have them completed by March?

    Wesley! What a terrible day for you! And those rotten kids!!! I taught for two years. HATED it. Takes a special person and I’m not it. Am hoping to finish. Depends on if I can keep my butt in the chair.

    I haven’t read my horoscope in a while really. Might need to check it out since I do like to see how it applies to my day or week or whatever.

    Today is my littlest man’s birthday so the house it too full to get anything done. Not to mention the massive headache I’ve been fighting. I was thrilled to get 3k in on a story on Friday. Need to buckle down and get it done. Have about another 8k to go to make it a shortie.
