Answering emails from students about assignments
Feeling an ache in my back from cleaning, vacuuming, standing around
Wondering about my family in Alabama; there were tornados in their neck of the woods
Appreciating the rain and the slight increase in temperatures
Using the other side of the loveseat; changing my routine and habits
Trusting that my decisions to shift some things in class will make sense to the students
Reflecting on expectations and how to meet them
Knowing how quickly time is moving (4 weeks until Spring Break)
Reading The Flight of Gemma Hardy by Margot Livesy
Working on Tuesday's class lesson
Surrounded by papers and mail
Giving in to where I am now, this moment
Enjoying a cleaner apartment (I spent some major time organizing and vacuuming and cleaning Sunday).
Understanding that not everyone is kind or humble and no matter what I do, I cannot change people.
Expressing my deep gratitude for my mom whose conversations I look forward to and who always listens like she always has.
Joining a running club though I'll be walking (for now).
Sharing what is happening in almost mid-February.
