I posted this last weekend and it seemed to be a hit, so I thought I would post again this week! What things are you looking forward to this week? What things are you not looking forward to this week?

Looking forward to:

-Speaker at Church
-Field trip
-Going out to eat on Monday
-Seeing my class again
-Special school wide fun activity this week
-Going to watch a movie with popcorn and M&Ms tonight
-Not grading papers tonight
-Going shopping for some new clothes this week
-The weekend (provided I'm not too tired to enjoy everything!)

Not Looking Forward to:
-Getting on the scale on Friday for my weekly weigh-in
-Fitting everything in at school when we have a busy week
-Doing report cards
-Getting up early
-Colder weather
-Rainy weather which means indoor recess (and of course crazier kids!)

I am both looking forward to and not looking forward to finding the $$ I need to pay for all these bills and expenses on this week's list.

I also am both looking forward to and not looking forward to getting the details on DH's company's "reorganization" (i.e., their periodic initiative to rip off longtime, hardworking employees by reworking job descriptions and lowering the pay scale). At least we'll know what we're facing, but this is gonna hurt big-time.

Looking forward to:
* Half-day Friday with extra teacher prep time.
* New students and new classes next Monday when the quarter changes.

Looking forward to:

My lumbar MRI...FINALLY!! I’m hoping once this test is complete I can finally get some answers to my knee issues. I’ve been dealing with dragging my leg around since August 23rd. I want to be able to move again. So far I have a dislocated patella, swelling and possibly partially torn quadriceps tendon. I truly believe the surgeon messed up my knee replacement.

Not looking forward to:

My lumbar MRI...I’m claustrophobic. I’m opting for no meds so I can drive myself home. I hope I get through this without overwhelming anxiety.

Update: Last week I was looking forward and not looking forward to test results for my month old granddaughter who was hospitalized for meningitis. Yesterday, she went home! No more fever! No more antibiotics! None of the cultures were positive for viral or bacterial meningitis! She is so much better than a week ago. Thanks be to God!
