To persevere and overcome

Thank you all for your kind words and expressions of sympathy for my temporary plight. Anyway, I hope it’s temporary as my body seems to be bouncing back. Lots of water and ginger ale have proven the best medicine.

I still don’t have much of an appetite but did eat a part of a pancake Terry made. Every Saturday morning he makes pancakes and most of the time I’m not interested in them as I’m not a fan of pancakes. But this morning I accepted his offering. I had some bread and soup for lunch and just ate a popsicle.

I was also able to wake up early this morning and get some chores done. I’ve selected the book for next week’s storytelling. I hope all goes more smoothly than the past week. The technology on the teachers’ end did not work as it was supposed to. I missed one class entirely and was a day late to another. But we persevered and overcame the challenges, which happened to be a lesson in the book I read, a day late, to the second graders.

My motivation has picked up as I carried on through these days. As I used to tell my students, I’m still standing and carrying on.
