Slow Start

Having a slow start to the day. I read the wrong material again for the class I teach and did not realize it until just before I left home once I looked at the syllabus.  So class went fairly well considering.  I read most of it all while waiting on them to do a writing assignment and was able to hold up well doing the lecture.  They were engaged and paying attention so that always helps as well.  At least I will be prepared for the next class.

I sent my little final project to a MFA buddy to read and she liked it so I feel pretty good about it.  She said it had a “soft landing” and wondered if I could punch it up a bit.  So we will think on that and see what we can do.  I may wait until it’s been workshopped to see what all they say about it.

I continue to be amazed at how I am losing weight just by giving up cokes and sweet tea.  I am walking some going to and from my car to class, but I don’t think that can account for all 14 pounds I’ve lost.  I of course still have more to lose, but it’s a good start.  Hopefully I can keep the momentum going through the holidays.

Hope everyone has a good week this week.
