It’s bad news, good news this week.
#1. Bad news: After a loooong week, I have been working on paperwork most of the day and my eyes are swimming. Good news: I finished a lot of it!
#2. Bad news: I lost October 2016. I mean I lost my lesson plans for a student. I have the digital version but no notes. Good news: I found October! It was just incorrectly stapled. More good news: I threw away some clutter in the hunting process.
#3. Bad news: I have not been able to wean my foot from the compression boot. Good news: I said, “Whatever!” and tossed the heavy thing aside. More good news: My foot has been fine all day.
#4. Bad news: I did waste a little time playing Mahjong today. Good news: I beat an expert level that had defied me for weeks. Yes, the game was taunting me.
#5. Bad news: I did not get much accomplished with my online classes today. Good news: Tomorrow is another day.
#6. Bad news: My dearest teaching widower had to work all day, too. Good news: I was able to help him on a project without getting snappy. Oh, right, I never get snappy.
#7. Bad news: I lied in #6. Good news: I only lied about never getting snappy. I really did help him without getting snappy TODAY. And I am running out of news, folks.
#8. Bad news: There is no sequel to the sequel of The Dying and the Dead. Good news: Sequel #1 was great and featured a brave young boy.
#9. Bad news: I may not finish the Color Your World blogging challenge. Good news: I can try again next year. More good news: I have a whole year to take more colorful photos!
#10: Bad news: I have nothing else to add. Good news: I did not gripe about the clutter in the house, the laundry that needs to be washed, or the pile of mulch in our driveway that needs to be spread somewhere, anywhere. More good news: I am reading a cool detective thriller called The Murderer’s Son by Joy Ellis. A terrific read about a guy who thinks he is a serial killer. Is he? I don’t know yet but it will be fun to find out. Mama was the Blonde Butcher. Oh dear, what a legacy.
Have a great week, dear readers!
