#DSFWeeklyRewind: Recognition, finally!

Good afternoon Rewinders! This week has been hectic but in a good way. I’m definitely thankful for my work friends and my kiddos this week. They have (even if they don’t realize it) given me ample validation that teaching is, in fact, my calling and that I am, in fact, relatively good at it.

If we work our way backwards, today (Sunday) has been all about the writing side of things. The Twitter Chat was about distractions, and thus it was also the theme for my weekly #ThinkBIGSundaywithMartha post.

#DSFWeeklyRewind: Make a Choice.

(This was supposed to post yesterday, so just pretend you’re reading it on Sunday)

Good afternoon Rewinders! I have to admit I’m in a fairly wonderful mood! While on the one hand, it seems imminent that I’m going to be forced to do things that aren’t what’s best because Some don’t see the value in my way, on the other (the one that is more important), I’m being constantly reaffirmed for my gifts. My success lately is in being able to identify that those positive affirmations of my talents are more important, and more true than the criticisms in my methods.

And that’s where today’s title comes in: Make a choice…

#DSFWeeklyRewind: Christmas is so close!!

Good afternoon Weekly Rewind folks! I’m running a little late this weekend, but I’m here to rewind this week for you. For those of you who wished my week this week would be better, thank you for the sentiment, although I’m not sure if it was better.

It was kind of a toss up, with half the week being frustrating and the other half being relatively nice.

Which is an odd thing to say, given that the “nice” part of my week included starting my monthly…

#DSFWeeklyRewind: Need a break.

A few days ago I posted about an incident that had me dwelling pondering on my autism. The rest of this week could easily have been another example of things that on some level help to remind me that I’m not actually abnormal… well, I am abnormal, but only because I’m not neurotypical. But I’m not abnormal aside from my well defined abnormality.

It’s confusing, I know.

I feel like this week’s DSF Rewind should be some variation of Alice in Wonderland, though, perhaps not the Johnny Depp version.

Weekend Coffee Share: Almost forgiven

Good afternoon! I know, I’m cutting it kind of close this weekend. It’s been busy…

Actually, that’s not true. The week was busy, but I spent almost all of yesterday in bed. I’m obviously not getting enough sleep during the week. I slept 11 hours Friday night, and then took a nap yesterday afternoon and never got out of my pajamas at all yesterday.

I have gotten stuff done today, though I haven’t left the house yet…
