which field is that ?

hope it works out for you with the subbing !!!

 

this morning i had to quickly put away the baseball caps (should have done so a month ago or so !!!!)

in order to make space for hats and gloves

it's now 1°C over here in the morning & i had to "force" DD1 and DS to take a hat (ear muffs for DD1 actually) and gloves to walk to the bus stop

 

+ DD1 wanted to leave with a flimsy coton zip up top (that's too small & she's had it for two years & refuses to wear something else

am tempted to "make it disapear" but i worry she'll have a fit ... we are all a "little fragile" these days ... suppose it's a comfort item to her ...)

so i had to battle so that she would put on a warmer jacket this morning ...

 

i have some stains to scrub out of some trousers and tops

(one day when i walked home eating a kebab ... didn't notice that the plastic wrap had slid sideways & arrived home with greasy sauce all over my jacket -that came out in the wash - but also all the length of the front of my favorite pair of trousers... that only came out partially & didn't notice until i wore them again ...)

before i start a load of laundry so should get away from the computer for now ....

Last night I only got a couple of things done:

 

Make sure grandmother eats supper

Would like to get started decorating my Christmas tree

Would like to get some clothes folded

Read reading.gif

 
We ended up just practicing music for a short while and then sat down as a family and watched "A Christmas Carol" (the Jim Carrey version) together.  It was a great, relaxing evening.
 
Not sure what will get done tonight, if anything.  We may go play music at a local place that has musicians every Friday night. 
 
Tomorrow I should be able to get some stuff done.  fingersx.gif

Hi IsaFrench, I'm a clinical psychologist. I'm looking for postdoctoral work, and the market is really tight right now. So, I'm just going to be patient and sub for awhile. I'm so looking forward to earning a paycheck again. It's been too long.

Enjoy your cold weather. We're in Texas and it's gonna be near 80 degrees F today. I'm still nursing this cold/flu and I'm kinda miserable.
So far I:
-picked up lots of fruit and fresh flowers
-got DD off to school
-stacked the dishes to deal with later
-put out the trash and opened the windows
-had lunch

I hope to:
-take it easy and read reading.gif
-walk a little

so ... is it true that bugs don't die if it's not cold enough in winter ? are there more bugs of all kinds in Texas than in states more nothern with much colder winters ?

+ what kind of students would you have then ?

 

the fundraiser .... is Saturday NEXT week in fact ...

 

in the end, i took some of the bagged cookies to the tabacco and sweet shop that's near middle school ... the owner eventually decided which were the winning entries for the halloween monsters drawing competition ... as he put up his nativity scene in his shop window this morning (LOL you can see that halloween is an aquired concept around these parts ....)

 

DD1 was 3rd prize, DD2 got "prix jeune espoir" (and there was a 5th prize labelled "prix du jury" ... as in the Cannes film festival ....)

they both got a largish baggie with quite a few things in each(and not only sweets either)

so i thought it would be "right" to give that man some of our home made cookies when i accompanied DD2 to claim her prize

 

.... me too, i stacked the dishes to deal with later !!!!

(had a friend at college who used to say "une vaisselle bien rangée est déjà à moitié faite !")

have even managed, eventually, to more or less train everyone to stack it the way it upsets me less; plates vertical to the right of the sink, glasses in the middle and cutlery on the left ... I DO find it easier to process if it is nicely sorted to start with, i cannot work out if it's me who's overtly OCD or if it's just common sense to do it that way ....

it means ... stacking it all up nicely prior to washing up is half the job done already

(& it implies that it's not so bad walking away from it instead of tackling it straight away ...)

Hello, today (for me it's Monday morning already !) i

- got up, got DD1 and DS up ... and went back to sleep for an hour

- got DD2 to school

- nipped in to main post office (to make sure something i was supposed to send ... last Friday ... would get in the system as soon as possible) and since i was nearby middle school, dropped a forgotten item for a neighbor's daughter

+ decided to shop a bit for some supplies for home made Christmas cards (we went to a work shop for kids last Sat pm)

- started my second load of laundry (first one not yet up ... need to leave the computer soon)

- took out the toilet seat, bleached the hinges whith it sitting in the bath, it's drying now, i need to screw it back in place

- had a late late breakfast (stupidly overate for lunch yesterday, but the chicken was delicious & i had made a cake with 4 grated apples -that were starting to get wrinkled)

- need to schuffle quite a bit of paper around (that is why i'm presently procrastinating at the computer ....)

am going to have a nap soon-ish ....

Spent the weekend organizing the storage areas of the house and getting the things we had bought wrapped up for Christmas.. On the positive the only wrapping I have left is what Im making.. The negative, the house is a disaster other than the storage areas orngbiggrin.gif

 

What needs to get done:

pick up around the house and vacuum

diaper laundry

3 loads clothing laundry

Work on Christmas presents: 3 rag dolls with outfits, spaceship and 3 aliens, knot doll, bunting doll

inventory what we have in the fridge/freezer to use it up before we leave on vacation

figure out what needs to get done tomorrow

remember to have DD2 wear the eye patch

find DD2's glasses

 

Thats it orngbiggrin.gif

Haven't done anything today because I'm at work, but yesterday...

 

Made bed

Cleaned out and swept my closet floor (culled out shoes and misc)

Washed load of dishes in dishwasher

Did a load of laundry

Finished decorating the Christmas tree and put away most of the boxes of decorations

Cleaned off kitchen table

Cleaned off my nightstand beside my bed (had quickly become just a stacking spot)

Folded and put away laundry

Stitched the dog's name and a snowflake on a stocking for him

 

So yesterday was very productive

(need to look at these videos a few more times so it doesn't look i've had a lobotomy since last Tuesday LOL)

we only lasted 50 minutes at the park, it was so cold ! .... but the kids had the playthings for themselves on the other hand ...

 

"had to" buy some ready made desserts ... in order to retrieve the pretty cups SO that we could put wheat and lentils on soaked coton wool to germinate=> by Christmas time it should be a reasonnable lenght (IF we don't forget to water it regularly !!!) & it's a symbol of health and wealth around here

 

(didn't think of it myself but last year saw some with a pretty red ribon tied around it = very nice looking on a dining table, for decoration ....)

 

am presently waiting for black beans to cook in the pressure cooker

have decided to eat less meat if i can (for general health purpose) and am wondering if i shouldn't have written target = 2 fish meals per week, x black beans or red lentils meals per week too

... i tend to forget if i don't write stuff

 

only 10 minutes until i need to go and walk DS to his sport session, need to transfer the little bit of dance routine we learned yesterday from my camera to the computer => without the visual cues, i have NO recollection 10 minutes after the class is finished and therefore cannot practice during the week ...

 

wonder if i'm not going to have a new year's resolution about timing myself procrastinating at the computer ...

... the soup hasn't happened yet !

there's always something else to do ...

(have only managed to wash today Saturday the salad i bought on Wednesday ....)

 

i should think that elementary age children can be "nicer" in a way (more innocent, maybe easier to handle ?) but in any case, having young people to lead surely must be enriching ....

 

today i only managed one load of laundry, shining the sink and sanitising the toilet

... don't know where the morning went & then we rushed to a larger sports store to get something specific for DD1

(on the way back i found out that i could have gone there with my town bus pass instead of buying cards of 6 trips for 19 euros the card

& started wondering ... why am i the only one not to know these things ?????)

 

had to rush back and i whipped something out of the freezer since we had to get going within 35 minutes

 

attended our local expats' group Christmas party & Santa came with 3 pillow cases of different colors (for different goodies in the bags for different ages !)

i do feel bad deceiving DD2 in a way .... but had a great time kneeling behind her for moral support whilst she stood there, half worried, waiting for her turn,

all the little ones crowding in front of our sitting Santa at the same time eager to get their turn but also rather flushed when their turn eventually came ...

 

it was a pot luck & i scooped quite a few left over cookies (DD1 had to leave early because of horse riding class so she had some of the cookies after dinner)

 

tonight i used the middle school website to arrange appointments with various teachers for DS and one for DD1

 

am about to go and have a look in the election of Miss France on tv ... should go to bed really ...
