Mars Direct (thank goodness)
Sunny and cool
Yesterday was just a tough day. We all have them; we get through them the best we can and move on. I have some things I need to take care of in the coming weeks, so I have to adjust my schedule slightly, and then make sure I don’t get into this situation again.
Worked a lot, but it didn’t feel like I got anything done. Again, we all have those days. You do the best you can to get through it.
I’m looking forward to the afternoon — some friends and I are going over to Heritage Museum & Gardens for a talk on Eudora Welty and the garden. Should be amazing!
In the meantime, I’m putting my head down to meet a deadline before I go, and then I’ve got another one to meet when I return. Plus, in One Story, Many Voices, the next story is due today., so I’ll have to check in there. I’m having a lot of trouble with that site — the browsers claim it’s an “attack site”, I keep getting locked out, kicked off, etc. I feel bad for them — they’ve had trouble for the last few months. It’s hard to balance that compassion for their struggles with the frustration of not being able to get into the site and deal with the student work — I have a finite amount of time and if I can’t get in, it throws everything off. But really, it’s not their fault, so I’m trying to keep it in perspective, and we’re all doing the best we can and muddling through.
I’m hoping to get a good chunk of writing done on Sunday on “Town Crier” with my new direction for it.
Deep breath, step by step, that’s all we can do, right?
Have a great weekend. At least it’s Friday the 13th. I LOVE Friday the 13th!
