Writing Group, week 10
Hi all, sorry for the lateness of the post. I somehow forgot that it was my turn, partially because I decided to change to wordpress, and partially because of a bunch of OBE. The OBE was the same burn out — I ended up taking off the full week my therapist and doctor told me to — plus a massive amount of prep for a student-parent meeting, which took over three hours, but I think ended up in a resolution that was ok for them, ok for me (but will require more work) and made my dean happy. In the meantime, I’ve been dealing with the disaster area that is my house, a trip to the ER, and migraines from going into serious heat, then into seriously cold buildings.
But thanks to Notorious, there is a post. And there will be more added later.
