No excuse is needed for bacon.
slow moving yesterday, flirting with some sort of illness...pay bills, do laundry, pet care, spend some time hunting for lost credit card and taking online ceus for upcoming classes I will be teaching....adding another Y to my list of work places....lunch with friends...practice some new choreo...teach spin and take another class after that...home to make playlists and chat w/dh briefly...out cold feeling pretty sick

drive to Evanston, takedtr, birthday shopping for jeans then to dinner at "native foods" (vegan fare)...then to bridal salon for first little dip into dress shopping...drive home and teach two classes...am entirely exhausted...but it was a lovely day
Mmmmm... Native foods is great... and I'm not even vegetarian!
Saturday--Reasonably productive day. Grocery shopped. Got 12 Blackboard assignments read. Put in a long workout on the treadmill. That night, watched some Olympics.
Sunday--Had hoped we might be able to use this--my last free weekend day for awhile--to do something super fun, but Child has a bit of a cold and low-grade fever, so we had a chill out day at home. I started reading Chang-Rae Lee's Under a Full Sea.
Monday--Work, including 9 ENG 1101 appts (though one person cancelled and one was a no-show, so really 7).
Postcolonial Literature--Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's Americanah.
Walk on the Wilde Side--Last day of discussion of Queer London.
9-10--Summer advisement and registration meeting.
10-11:30--First Year Team meeting.
11:30-12:15--Math External Review meeting.
12:30-1:30--Music External Review meeting.
2:40-4:10--Guest lectured on dystopias in a class on The Hunger Games.
Wednesday--6 more ENG 1101 appts. (One no-show.)
Walk on the Wilde Side--E.M. Forster's Maurice.
Took Child to dance. Immediately upon arriving, Child realizes that since she had to stay home from dance Monday and Tuesday, she hasn't been to the studio since Saturday...which means her dance bag is in her Dad's car. I roundtrip and get it for her, because I am nice.
Thursday--Spend the morning knocking many items off the seemingly never ending to-do list.
2-3:30--Double lesson w/Nik.
PM--6 miles on tm.
it is hit and miss for me...some of that gelatinous, gluten based fake meat makes me want to hurl....but some of it is simply wonderful
True. I generally try to stay away from vegetables masquerading as meat and it works out
Brain dead post-competition day

doing today now as I do not anticipate anything of consequence beyond this point....teach 2 fitness classes....too tired from late night out last evening to drive to hot yoga ...and the roads seem to be icing....home to tidy the house a bit but then pretty much crash and burn...take a nap and then practice for a while....dh has come down with some sort of stomach virus, so our play date is now off...probably going to be unnproductive the rest of the eve .....as I cannot find the password to take the ceus on yoga and pilates that I have purchased...and I am never very attentive in the evening...

Too Damn Much Time with Ex
Social dancing; this was delightful, most unusual
Visit from friend from London; from prep to goodbye, this took the whole day, but was lovely
Might as well do today, b/c I'm not awake for long:
Lesson, in which Standard was addressed
Visit with Blond German Friend
Nap (much needed)
Home; about to Z
tues...cannot remember for the life of me other than I know I taught spin
wed...5am boot camp....8 am step, 9am spin, 10 toning...3pm til this morning; the most violent awful episode of stomach virus which I have ever seen
OH, FASC so sorry about the stomach virus. Not fun. Sympathy!
Lesson, more Standard
To house of Ex, to pack and ship; this morphs into way more time than I want to spend with him
Home for brief food and to make theater arrangements with father; he's taking a bus, I'm meeting him there; this plan is fraught with potential screwups
Drive real fast to make it to theater in time; do! win! pity the play was so bad
