Just a quick update! Well -- I finished my first university unit (1/24th of my degree, haha) with grades that should get me a lovely High Distinction -- I guess that's more or less, an A plus. I'm super happy about that, I worked very hard and really had to manage my time well so that it wasn't a burden on the family or work/finances to accomplish.
I have a contract to work next year at my kids' school and hope to continue to teach music privately as well. Just between you and me, I'm hoping that the music-teaching will gradually but surely tend more towards art-teaching because...well...I'm PASSIONATE about art whereas I'm sorta generally meh about music :)
I know I haven't posted photos. I really am working very hard and I don't have time on my hands really at all. I try to post every day to instagram, and you can see me there at
I've been gaining weight a lot lately, probably due to my sitting-down-and-working for uni, plus stress-eating...so I have recently joined Trim Healthy Mama at http://www.trimhealthymama.com/ . I've lost weight with them in the past, but with everything else going on, I just sort have gotten food on the table that I could *get* on the table in short order, and my health has been suffering as a result. Hopefully over the summer holidays I'll be able to: 1. get most of my second unit done; and 2: redo my menu with a better THM direction so I don't have to think about it when I go back to work in January.
Hope you are all doing well. Come see me at Instagram!
