Life is too busy right now. Here are my thoughts on everything I have going on.
I have been given 25,000 to start a state wide association. What in heavens name made me think I would want to do this? I realized in the nomination process that I was going to be in the middle of several wonderful professional women like myself.. ( haha) that will probably be going through menopause or PMS'ing at the same time. Women can be emotional. Can I deal with this when I have so much going on?
College hours. I am finishing my degree mainly for myself so I wont have to explain anymore that I do not have one. Why? Who cares? If they keep me this busy as uneducated as I am, what will happen when I actually have credentials? Why do I need to study ancient art to be a great preschool teacher and why did all the artist like nudity so much. I totally could have been a model back then, they did like well rounded girls.... well, you know what I mean. Arkansas history - I didnt realize I grew up in a place that was so pivotal in the civil rights movement. Pschology - I wont do spell check - s0.... see, how much trouble I am in ? I have been in this class for 10 weeks and STILL cant even spell the name of the class.
Concert. Yes, we have 64 of them so far. That's all I am sayin.
Arkansas Childrens Week - I am coordinating efforts for the Siloam Springs area. It is going to be very cool and fun . There will be two large events - one hosted by family childcare providers and one by Arkansas Better Chance providers. I hope we have clowns and I hope I am not one of them.
There are so many conferences that I need to be at in the next 3 months it is CRAZY. One is this weekend. I am the president, so I have to be there. I am teaching a session on FCC so, if I dont show up it will be noticed. Can I just be irresponsible once?
I went on a study tour last week. I am thinking of changing curriculum models to Reggio Emelia. To be totally honest, I am not sure I have the energy right now. I put so much time into the classroom now, I am not sure I can give more. The Reggio Emelia style would require much documentation.
Documentation - that is what I need ---one more thing to keep up with.
Taxes.... I havent even thought about them yet. Ugh....
So, I am pretty sure the quirks I have been feeling are anxiety... If not, I did meet with an advisor last week to get insurance coverage for heart attacks. No, there is not anything I can give up at this point. but soon.... I will.
School will be out.
Concerts will be concerting... :)
I will be hanging out in the lap of luxury at a motel 6 before we know it !
Ahh...... There goes that french fry feeling again !
