Oh oh cruising through blogs is so much more fun than the report I need to write for tomorrow. It will be my final instructor assessment report. But that is not why I am procrastinating. I am procrastinating because I don't want to write it!
I observed a good instructor...good interactive class... So it's not why I am procrastinating. It will be a good report. But hmmm.... I'm tired of writing them :) I have written 23 reports since September. Twenty-three reports. Most department chairs write two a term, total of six a year. But I made it my mission to catch up the former department chair's assessment reports. So, 23. As he returns, he has to be happy they are all caught up. And I can walk away knowing I don't have to do any more!
Meantime, I have one more to write. I'd rather be outside riding bikes :) Picture me like that kid who is standing at the window looking out as he is holding his violin, watching his friends play ball...

I am looking to find ways to get some comfort without turning to food. I would love to hear some ideas to help me get through weeks like the following:
It has been a very rough month between overworking, constant pressure, a fibromyalgia flare up, and exhaustion. All I could manage is to crawl home, take more ibuprofen, and cuddle myself with attempts at comfort foods. Activities are impossible when I can barely walk.So I have been self-medicating with food. I want to find a better way to help myself. I took myself to the coast for a few days and found the salt and the sand and the sea brought much comfort. Too bad I can't have it in my kitchen all the time :)
