Getting There

November 20th, 2013 at 08:14 pm

I feel like the worst of the semester is behind me. All my students are working on big projects, and only need feedback from me. Nothing new or too major to assign, and only three weeks to go.

Tomorrow my London contact arrives to do the meeting with this year's students. Unbelievably, there are three I still haven't met, so finally I'll see everyone tomorrow.

I've been pretty frugal, and I've also been trying to diet a bit. I've kept up with Swagbucks up to now, but imagine if we're traveling over Thanksgiving, I'll abandon the monthly goal. My Nectar Adpoints are very slowly adding up to help with my London grocery bill. I've done some Pinecone surveys and some Christmas shopping at the church bazaar. Now I just need a few days to tie up loose ends and do an analysis of things that need to be done for the semester, the London trip, home, and Christmas.

My dear friend with cancer is home, but the prognosis is not good. She's a very stubborn soul, so I'm hoping she'll let me help while I can.

It's going to get very cold here, and I've made yet another pot of turkey broth from the turkeys I roasted for the shelter. It smells heavenly here. Nothing like a big pot of homemade soup.

    I'm glad you are getting into a groove with the semester, that's always a good feeling.

    Positive thoughts for your friend, I'm sure it's comforting to her to know you are there for her.

    My goal for Swagbucks this month was 21 days (reached today!) I won't be making the monthly goal thanks to a 4 day visit next week by NE. Big Grin
    How are you doing with your dietbet?

    I've also hit the 21-day SB goal, but will be abandoning it next week.
