It was a good start to the day, but the afternoon wasn’t fun!
Dennis dragged me out to finish our run of the dyke. We had just one section on the right side left to do. Amazingly we managed 9km without rain. I was too hot, but then my hands froze, but I suppose if that’s the worst I have to complain about, that’s not bad.
This evening I did a longer workout to try and make up for some poor choices. I did a minute of jogging between these exercises: burpees, bent over rows, froggers, overhead tricep extensions, skaters, shoulder press, mogul jumps, bicep curls, front raises, dips, pushups, reverse lunges, squats, plié squats, deadlifts, hip raises, plank, crunches, reverse crunches.
My plan was to do more but then I heard from a friend and ended up venting for a while.
I have started a new sweater which is in my book New American Knits by Amy Christoffers. It is called Serra turtleneck and I am making it in my Maryanne’s Sock by Smith and Ewe in the Northern Lights colour way. I am done the collar which I modified slightly and am at the point where I need to put it on waste yarn and see if it fits like I want it to. I will tackle that tomorrow sometime.
It finally got to me! We have been receiving a million emails every day from the school district, the union and the ministry all saying different things. The only thing they have in common is they keep telling me to take it slow and we’ll work together and not to stress. I have been doing pretty good at that as I had thought about the programs they approved and picked one that myself and the children were familiar with. Then today I got an email that told me I couldn’t take an iPad home. Well my platform is iPad based. I spiraled. I admit it. I ate ice cream!
I have since calmed down, with help from my friends and realized that if all else fails I will put the program on my phone or use the program website- neither is as easy as an iPad, but I will make it work. The worst part is that we aren’t allowed to take iPads in case kids need them. Have they seen where I work now? The kids have more tech than I do!!! Ugh tomorrow is another day…
I have finished a couple of books. I read Lean On Me by Lea Coll. It was a light, fluffy read, though I spent a lot of the book yelling at the heroine to not be stupid!
I also finished listening to Do Life. It is about a man who lost 120 pounds and took up running. I found the beginning to be quite a downer, but it improved as it went along.
Tonight trivia was done on YouTube. I guess that means you could all participate. You just need to search My Friend the DJ Entertainment. I wasn’t very smart today and only got a few.

He says you can cheat on the first round, but I prefer not to. There is a second Kahoot round, but you need two devices for that so I only did the first.
I think I will take myself off to bed and read some more!
