I need a pair of gray shoes, flats.
I went shopping for the first time in a long time yesterday and found two pair that I really liked, so I asked two sales people which they liked better. Then I went with that one. Got to the checkout and realized that I left my check book at home.
Debating, whether or not to get both or the one pair. Still, I will need to drive back today. My teaching wardrobe is really low. there have been some growing changes where I teach, and at the inservie I saw the new people that they hired, my direct supervisors, and they are dressed up quite a bit.....I didn't get asked to interview for the position. Important to me to be a team player this year. I listened at the inservice and anything that they mentioned that the others thought didn't work, I made a mental note and these past few days took those activities out of my class except for one, wich I can get some research to defend as I share for best teaching practices. Today, I'm sitting on the patio and lots of whiteout and notebook paper and my text, I'm revamping the structure of my class with objectives, and then will be able to develop my powerpoints.
I felt bad for the teacher who has been there longer than the rest who wanted one of the key positions. She got caught in some political ploy this summer and now is a hurting mama bee, who tried to dominate some things at the inservie. She tried to do some stinging to the rest of us. I get caught in that sort of thing and end up getting stung and looking stupid. I want to stay clear of that and be supportive and contribute and watch my own students grow.
If the crap from this summer had to happen, I'm glad that it happened this summer and that with the food, I'm getting use to a new diet, well better at it.
After the shoe thing, I went to a world trade or something like that whole foods, I guess, thatis what it is called. Ok, I hadn't eaten breakfast or lunch, bad planning on my part, so I nly had a dollar in cash with me, so I bought a kiwi for 66 cents, but I couldn't eat it there because of the thick skin. Go figre. So, I feel bad to say, but I munched my way through the store. Woudl you believe? The cherries were delicious. It was the free be stuff.
I still have my stomach going out in distance in some spots as far as it ever has, and the same as my tush. It goes out as far as ever in some spot, so when I put a stiff material blouse on, I look huge. But the thing is, my body is taking some of the fat and defining my shape. My sillouteet (sorry) looks good. My waist is getting sharp, my wrists are thinning out millimeters by millimeters up my arm......crazy. The challenges will be to findmaterials that flatter my figure, rather than to make me look like a blimp. Maybe at Sparks there could be a challenge fro the sexiest wrists and forearms, I might win that one.
I week ago, I removed my name from the reservation list for a class reunion, don't have the funds to travel, and I removed my name off the team for goingg to the Sparks convention. It was hard to take my name off those lists, but why try to hurt myself by wishing for something that I don't have.
