HAPPY VETERAN’S DAY!!

Veteran’s provided me with the freedom to write this blog.  Thank you.

As a student and teacher, my mentor’s focus have always been to reflect on what is going on in my life, my classroom and with my students. Reflection is something that I have not been spending much time on and have just operated in the moment.

Reflection on what I have been doing with regards to my writing and teaching career has made me realize that I have just kept going and not reflecting on how it will affect my life.  In addition, the fact that a fellow breast cancer friend died this past week. She had the same type (Stage 3a) and similiar side effects from treatments and medications. It is very sad! It is very scary!  I feel guilty I am alive. However it has caused me to grateful that I am still alive, still going strong, have my hair and working.  It has also reminded me that I need to get my booty out of my chair and realize ALL of my dreams.

Book Reviews

This weekend I reconnected to Neta Jackson and her Windy City Series.  Just so you know I have read almost all of her series and have just started this series.  I am in Book 3 and the main character reminds me of me.  In so far as, she works, has children, volunteers, and works with the church.  Very busy!  See above reflection!  I haven’t finished it, but it is really getting to me because of my own life.

In fact this morning, my devotion related to Hagar, who felt very much alone in the world.  God knew her, he knows us all and we need to be good stewards of our talents.  As I wrote, I haven’t finished the book and will let you know further on the story.

In addition, I printed my submissions from Netgalley and wrote a couple of reviews for the site.  I thought I had already written them, but now they are done.  The site, Netgalley, prefer we stay at 80% of our book, unfortunately I am only at 45%, which means I need to get with it. Finally, I need to update my Goodreads posts.

Writing:

The  blog “The Penny Hoarder” has become my new favorite blog.  It has provided me with a number of ways to improve my writing and with jobs I can work into my schedule.  I need to make some money, so I will look into these jobs.

 I will also be guest  blogging in the near future, so please look for me to do this and share with all of you.

Technology

I did not work on my new technology this weekend as I had planned. However, I did work on a new grant to see what I need in for instruction and my students.  There are several and with some luck I will be able to get my current projects on Donorschoose.org funded.  My students really need the playdough and related material in order to work on their fine motor skills.

Grants

Donorschoose.org have two projects that I have developed and I hope will be funded.  In addition, I am waiting for a grant that I wrote for a field trip from Target.  I really hope it will be funded because it will provide a great field trip for the students. Finally, I have developed some projects and hopes for new grants.

Application: Otherwise known as apps!

I owe several developers reviews for their apps that I received free.

Have a great day, night and stay warm!!
