Procrastination in Moderation

I really should be grading papers, but I haven't posted in a while and there is nothing wrong with procrastination in moderation.

So many things have been falling into place lately, it makes me feel so lucky. Having Justin and the dogs with me has been wonderful. I mean, three dogs are a lot of work, but there is also a lot of love in this apartment. Also, not having to drive back and forth from Seattle to Tukwila and back numerous times a day has been great! I feel like we have extra hours in our week again and that's extra time we can spend together. My parents have been so understanding about the situation. I know it's not what they would have chosen for me, but they've accepted it, which I appreciate. The only people I worry about are my grandparents and what they don't know won't hurt them. So, if any of my cousins happen to be reading this (which I doubt), please don't tell Pau-Pau and Gung-Gung! It would probably give them heart attacks.

I feel better about my job, too. I mean, it's a tough job, but there is an end in sight. I f inally got up the nerve to tell my principal that I am thinking about going elsewhere next year and she took it very well, which was such a relief. Who knows, maybe I'll be in the same job next school year. I don't know how many teaching jobs are out there, but I feel good having done the professional and well, decent thing to do in being honest with my principal.

This whole losing weight thing has not been going well, so I finally decided to make a realy committment. I have decided to completely cut out orange juice and mochas from my diet this February. I have a feeling that these calories will really make a difference. We'll see, I guess.

Okay, so my procrastination must come to an end. I must grade papers and lesson plan!
