After having a couple of bad weeks health-wise (flares, etc) - I finally had a decent week last week and over the weekend.
After 10 years of not teaching classes due to my health issues, I'm tutoring a group of kids for the next several weeks (2x per week). It's exhausting - but when you are doing something you are passionate about
, it's worth it. I almost forgot how very much I love teaching! (I do teach my older kids @ home... but it's a bit different than teaching to a class). If a miracle happened and my health issues got somewhat better - I would love to resume teaching in some capacity.
I'm also going to write a book (regardless of my health stuff!).... have always felt called to write -- just don't have my subject yet! Each time I think I'm settled on something, I change course. But I bought a couple of notebooks over the weekend - and am really going to start exploring this area again.
Other than that... spent lots of family time together this weekend - despite the extreme heat! Enjoyed a wonderful dinner with friends tonight - it was another large family.... so, between our two families - there were 18 people! But it was a perfect evening... all the kids got along and the adults got to visit.
On the agenda this week is continuing w/ my class.... just all my "mom" stuff.... and praying my health/pain stays stable. It would be a miracle if I had another week of feeling decent. I can't remember the last time that I had 2 weeks in a row where things were all ok. But it would be awesome if it happens
Regardless, I'm thankful that I had a decent week and weekend!
