Unemployment Day 107

  1. Took Anna to school.
  2. Came home.
  3. Dropped the throw rugs off at my parents’ for throw-rug-laundry day.
  4. Went to ballet. Aimee and I were not able to figure out the correct transition in the Scottish Lilt, but we did discover that we each have our own variation for that specific spot. So if anyone reading this also took Highland with Terri Bullard and remembers the Scottish Lilt, I’d love to hear how you transition from the double-shake on side one into side two of the third step (the rock step).
  5. Came home.
  6. Showered.
  7. Had lunch.
  8. Did the peer reviews for my practicum.
  9. Wrote an introduction for my group’s final paper.
  10. Took a nap on my back porch.
  11. Remembered to take the yard waste bin to the curb.
  12. Picked Anna up from school.
  13. Opened windows in the living room.
  14. Dinner, screen time, snuggles.
  15. Called my mom to check in.
  16. Realized the reflection paper for my practicum is due tomorrow. I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow!
  17. Still no word on the job. Definitely need to apply for a few more things this week.
