I spent about half an hour on the in-line skates tonight, and only didn't fall over because C. kept catching me. I made it about halfway down the sidewalk towards the end under my own power. Tomorrow I'm supposed to start learning how to brake. My feet are achy now.
I set my goal low enough, that I actually managed to surpass it, and did 7 pages instead of 5. I'll be at home tomorrow, so hopefully I'll make up for last week's failures and really get lots done!
Goal: Edit 10 pages and translate at least 40 lines of latin for tomorrow.
It's lovely and sunny today, which is a happy thing, and I know I'll get out of the house at least once today since I have to return the DVD. I always do better with a change of scenery happening at least once in my day.
Wow... South Korea beat Italy. How unexpected and amazing. My sister'll be crushed! This is the first World Cup I've really followed, but what an interesting one it's been as one to start with!
My eyes are still acclimating to being back inside. I've been working on Latin outside this afternoon and, while the brightness made it occassionally difficult to concentrate, it was a very pleasant shade of scenery, and worked largely because we have the umbrella to shade the table. So far today: 8 pages of editing and 20 lines of Latin done, plus another 30 just starting to be sketched out. To my embarassment, I forget if I'm meant to be aiming for 50 or 100 lines. Definitely not more than that. But all in all, not too shabby a day academically, even if I haven't quite met my goals.
But I keep thinking of more errands to run, which is a problem: practice skating/falling down; go to grocery store; go over to Lindsay's to help her with computer mouse woes; do some mush write-up things.
