What I've Been Up To

I have not felt like blogging or writing a lot lately. I am not sure why or what is going on, other than I was so busy in February that when things finally slowed down last week that I just completely stopped. Part of the problem, I know, was that I was a bit under the weather as well. Nothing serious--just embarrassing female stuff you all would consider TMI if I divulged the details.

So what have I been doing lately? Well, the teaching is going well. One of my students today complemented me, saying, "You're a really good teacher." This made me feel fabulous because I worry I am not doing as good a job as I could. I am also glad that this week I only have to lecture once (there is an exam for my classes on Thursday).

My dh is out of town, but will be back later today. Having him gone is stressful, but I go and buy junk food for the kids' lunches and I plan easy meals and try to do something fun with the kids. Last night for FHE we made some blueberry quick bread and cards to take to an injured ward member. We had fun riding out bikes and scooters over to deliver it together. i am beginning to appreciate these times together.

Tomorrow is our 15th wedding anniversary. We do not have big plans, although we are going to Alabama together for part of spring break (which I sold to him as an anniversary trip ;-). Maybe we will go out to eat, though, tomorrow. Any recommendations from my Mesa counterparts out there?

And as for writing, I did get one manuscript submitted last week. I should be working on another manuscript, but need to get re-motivated asap. My goal is to get this second manuscript submitted by the end of April. This is quite ambitious, but I know I can do it. I just need to get my focus back and get to work.

Which maybe I should do right now...

Scripture of the Day: Psalms 144:15


  1. Yay! I know how nervous you were about your teaching gig. So glad it's going well!

  2. Rebecca I am always amazed by how much you take on, so if you take a break from blogging it's well deserved! Happy Anniversary! One of our AZ favorites was Pasta Pomodoro, I' quite certain there's one in Chandler. Sooo good, but nothing fancy. The appetizers are awesome.

  3. Hope your life slows down. I'm so busy I can't stand it. I keep thinking it'll get better. It hasn't.
    Happy Anniversary.

  4. Happy Anniversary!! Fifteen years is a good start. :-) I am glad your teaching is going well. I am sure you are a great teacher. Sorry to hear about the female problems. I know from personal experience that that is never fun. And good luck with everything else you have going on in your life these days.

  5. Hope you had a wonderful Anniversary. No fun having female problems, feel better soon.
