Ok today’s the day.
Wrote 3/4 of one paper last night… putting that one aside now as it is not due till Tuesday.
Today however.. today is the day of nature.
How does nature and the outdoors effect the development of a child?
Here’s what I got so far… pretty much just a plan.. but hey it’s a good start!
Defining the outdoors
- Gross motor skills
- Fine motor skills
- Nutrition & healthy eating habits
- Patience, compassion, gentleness calmness
- growing gardens together / community
- Joint goals
Early Childhood educators
- Why to know?
- How to implement?
Ok so … still no smokes wooo! Actually doing pretty good. haven’t had ANY since the 20th, and it was 3 weeks before that little snafu so I’m just calling it 1 month in.. and ya it’s good. I don’t feel nearly so jittery.. next step though is to quit the big MJ.
To be honest I am a little nervous but I am also sick of feeling dependent on something. I have managed to get myself off everything else, one last little hurdle can’t be all that bad.
Also I have 2 papers to write and I have barely started them. I even left class early last night because I was feeling so much stress from it all I thought I was going to be sick.
I’m not totally screwed, I’ve picked all my articles, made my citations list, and for the one even started to get it organized; however I am not moving nearly fast enough. But to be honest I never feel like I am moving fast enough….
So I spent my weekend yundoing my research paper. Started out with a nice healthy 2000 words and now have just over 400. Oh trust me those words are consice as shit… but it also means that I now have exactly 6 days to write not one but TWO fully formed research papers and I have yet to start.
Work morning: C
Stressed about taking a half day on Friday, stressed about sendign all those emails to the wrong person (dumb auto correct), stressed about an accounting issue that has nothign to do with me but is stressfull
However I made chocolate chip cookies last night (instead of writing the damn paper!)
Wow I also think I managed to post every day. Couple of them were re-blogs! but hey I still think that counts for a blog-crastinator like myself.
So today already sucks.
I totally do not get office politics.
So I ask my boss a few weeks ago if he would be into having a yoga workshop in our Boardroom on a Friday (as we do fun stuff like that!) and my friend Debbie http://www.nirmalaliving.com offers a office-yoga workshop.
So all is good he gives me a few dates, I pick today order her up life is cool.
A client then asks me to organize her a “Ladies-Lunch” on the same day. I tell her what we are doing and offer ways to mix the 2, she agrees, tells me sounds great I organize the whole she-bang.
Then I get an email from my boss(‘s iPhone) that someone complained that the day would be too full and that we needed to cancel the yoga. So fine, whatever I guess, I cancelled it.
THEN the woman comes asks me about the lunch plans and I told her that after the yoga was cancelled I assumed I wasn’t wanted to organize and that I would happily share her plans with the office but that I no longer knew what was happening. So she says ok well just cancel the lunch too.
WTF? So now no one gets to do anything fun? Why go through all the trouble?
I can’t wait until my clients are little people who will be fun sporadic entertainment seakers.
GET ME OUTTA HERE!
