Oh how I've missed these random posts...they used to happen when I had a whole lot more time and a few tidbits here and there to share...so let's move on.
*I really want to participate in this class. Not sure if I'll have the opportunity though.
*I've already chosen my word for 2011...something I've not ever done in past years.
*This project never really 'spoke' to me or interested me...until THIS year.
*My word is "freedom"...interpret as you wish but it's pretty specific for me.
*I particularly like these two definitions of the word:
1) The state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under
physical (mental or verbal works better for me) restraint:
2) exemption from external control, interference, regulation, etc.
*What is (or would be) your word for 2011?
*Came back to work yesterday after a lovely 2 weeks off which included sleeping in 'til 9am one morning. That hadn't happened since Ethan arrived on this earth.
*Yesterday was a nice low-key day, as is today. Students return tomorrow.
*I still have this overwhelming urge to learn InDesign (or Illustrator)...but cannot find a class in the area (which isn't an on-line class, that is). I can't really afford a personal tutor, which would be ideal. I'm pretty certain that I wouldn't be too good at self-teaching from one of those Dummies books...I'm SO a visual learner. I need to "watch" and "do" to learn. It's the best way for me. I would say to learn InDesign is a 2011 goal for me, but I'm feeling rather helpless about it right now. So helpless in fact, I may just toss it aside...can't really afford to buy the program anyway. Everything always ends up being about money...that pretty much sucks.
*On a brighter note, I accomplished a BIG goal during my Christmas break...well, actually Ethan did. We began potty training on Monday, Dec 27 and he is 98% potty trained on #1 (yay!) and even at night & naps!! Bonus!! Averaging one itty bitty peepee accident per day. As for #2...I'm just not talking about it right now.
*Is it bad that I am ready for Friday already? I just want to be at home in my PJs.
