The fight to catch up lately has been very real for me. Last week I thought I was finally on top of things, had a good roadmap of what I needed to get done and how I planned to get there, and then life, asthma, and allergies came into play and what I thought would be done, just isn’t. So here I am, a little later than usual trying to put together a well-planned outpost that has all the meat and potatoes, starter salad, and dessert to ensure I have a full meal deal post here. So all Y’all out there hoping that I too have these days can be fully assured that more than not I feel a little scrambly lately, and trying to do the best that I can. At least I feel like I have moved from being burnt out to having spring fever (snow mold and all), and I’m not sure which one is harder to deal with.
Wow! It’s been one heck of a ride lately. Between all of the hustle and bustle at school, racing to pick my kiddo up after work, and scurrying around picking up odds and ends around the house just to try to keep all of the plates I’m holding in the air balanced. It seems that a lot of us are feeling this lately. I think we’ve passed the stages of burnout and are now moving along in a predictable rhythm that has all of the plates oddly balanced in their own way. We’re all in this together, learning alongside one another and getting better in our own weird way every day. So, cheers to learning, balancing, and staying afloat. This too shall pass.
Although I had previously posted quite a lengthy blog post about my course prototype many moons ago, which you can find here, I thought that I would begin this blog post with a short summary of the course prototype that I had blogged about previously. Although the last one was quite lengthy (and I wouldn’t be surprised if you cut to the summary at the end), I promise this one will be much shorter.
