Goals - Week of December 9, 2012

Things still continue to amaze me.

My Dad ended back in the hospital on Friday. His blood pressure was 86/60.  Yikes!  Turns out his medication is way off and so they took him off it and are letting him re-adjust.  Still need to solve that internal bleeding problem, but that part is stable and shouldn't change as long as he doesn't try to do too much.  He's tired, so reading, watching TV and a little bit of writing are his big activities right now. 

We're nearing the end of the semester for me. WHEW!  I'm sure ready for a break.  We have about a week and a half of chaos left and then we're done. Whoot.  Except for grading but everything but a final term paper will be done at that time.  Then I can relax and spend some time enjoying my family and finally get well again! At least that's the plan!

 Here's how I did last week:

Be Prepared for each class period
Update class web pages
Take notes from the book I borrowed from a colleague 

Meet with my adviser  We chatted on the phone and will meet this week instead.
Move two books from school to work Didn't get over to school this week to move the books.
Write 2-5 pages  

Teach 4 classes 
Submit my November paperwork
Learn 2 new routines I learned one.

Date Night: At home one night during the week  Totally missed this do to all the other stuff.

Make Daily devotional times a priority 

Call for a follow-up doctor's appointment  Did this but can't get in until January.

In spite of the added chaos, it was a pretty good week productivity speaking!
