I've got a light day.  Just one client and my own strength training workout.  Planning to rest as much as I can...  although I'm taking lots of drugs, I'm still sick and I can feel it.  

Yesterday, I labeled all my meds with silver stars (for morning) or green stars (for evening).  Sheesh.  Talk about feeling old.  :P

lol on the med labels. I feel old enough with my hip/elbow issues. I'm so glad I don't take meds. 

I have to finish up a bunch of tests and things with the kids today in school because I am about to give them a two week break. I don't know why grading takes me so long. 

Then I have many gifts to wrap. I do not like wrapping! Once I get a few things done, I'm heading to the gym for some weight lifting. 

Not a high energy day for me at all. Just long.

I don't like wrapping gifts either. I'm not patient and my gifts always look like they've been wrapped by a 5 year old. On the other end of the scale, you have my MIL (and her sister) who use glue guns liberally and their gifts look like something you'd see at a department store (probably better actually).

I am a terrible wrapper, but I actually like doing it. But I have very specific ideas of how I need to do it. If I have multiple gifts for one person, I want each to have different paper. I like the tags and paper to match (and for some reason, they seldom do because I buy stuff on sale after Christmas). And i buy all the children books, and i want them all wrapped identically, and with expensive looking paper....i like to wrap everything at once, and I make a HUGE mess...take over the whole living room for the operation. I put everyone's stuff in piles. Then I do all the paper. Then all the ribbon. Then all the tags. For the kids gifts, I buy ornaments to tie on...it is a production and a half...which I am not doing this year....I went to Zumba tonight. I think I learned the Polsh words for 'left' and 'right'. The instructor is so good...of course when she is talking, she could be saying 'am I wearing you out yet?' and I wouldn't know....her choreography is beautiful, elegant, fast and easy to follow all at the same time. Gymrat...lol on the stars...I take meds and vitamins each morning and I can see that it would be time saving to do one of those day of the week things once a week...but I resist...I resist...hope you feel better. Hope Jean is loving her ski trip...Kafka, between studying and teaching I don't know if you are coming or going...FSN..see you later!

"Take two..."  I couldn't get on yesterday on my laptop, so I am trying with my iPad.  :)

Busy, busy, busy...phenomenal yoga this morning, tons of work, pup training tonight.  We got an offer on our house, and with all of the annoying haggling, I am starting to get mad.  We are already taking a 40% loss, and they are still haggling over peanuts.  At this point, I feel like saying, "no" just because I don't want to sell to these stubborn people that will end up being our neighbors.  I am letting dh talk to the realtor because I would just be mad.

Ugh.  The editing mode freezes a lot...and, thus, a second post.  I am realizing my new manager is completely green.  I am having a bit of rebellion which I am sure I will adjust to in a month or so.
