Yes, I have been working through some personal challenges. The course I have been stressing about has totally rocked my world. Somehow – for the first time in my life actually – I have totally dropped the ball and failed to realize that I needed to register for an exam at least a month ago for this course. I have completely missed the deadline (and have until tomorrow now) to either sort it out or cut my losses. When I realized this the other night I totally freaked out at myself. How did this happen? How could I (the person that rereads instructions at least 9 times before starting, or checks the alarm clock at least 7 times before allowing myself to fall asleep) bugger up so majorly on one of my courses? Needless to say I have been sorely disappointed with myself but I have allowed myself at least to move forwards and focus on getting myself back on track.
UGH! I still can’t believe I did it!
Anyways, things have been happening at light speed. Last weekend I went down to Seattle to visit my sisterfriend (John’s sis), her hubby and their new bundle of joy, Adele. She is sweet as pie and I forgot how much I love holding new babies. It was too brief a visit, but it was great to just hang out, cuddle new babies and enjoy good company.
This most recent weekend I played in my first full contact scrimmage for roller derby. I was so nervous, slightly sick (today I am full-blown sick) but managed to have the best time! Our team won, I managed to get a few good hits in there and didn’t hurt myself (minus one pulled quad muscle).
My “baby” chicks are no longer babies. Yesterday John and I decided to put them outside for a few hours in a separate run, next to the older chickens we have.
