And the term is winding down - YIPPEE!

Managed to stop beating myself up. What's done is done.

It's always good to be reminded of what you do well or what you like to do to chase away those self-recriminating thoughts.

My class went well - got the take-home written - discussed it in class. Got a pile of grading to do by Tues, then the students do group presentations. Then more grading. Had a full class for the first time in a long long time this term. Lots of illnesses. I think there were a lot of cases of swine flu.

Which reminds me, I still have not been immunized for either that or the regular flu. I keep meaning to talk to my doctor. Haven't immunized Eddie yet either.

Eddie greeted me the other day as a kitty cat - he purred up against me, "marking" me by rubbing his check on my cheek. He was expressing affection and requesting attention. I thought it was kinda remarkable given his autism - he was both pretending and being very affectionate, but then, he always has been affectionate. I held him a lot when he was in the NICU and when I was home with him as a baby and toddler and I cuddle him all the time, so I'm glad that he isn't a typical autistic child who doesn't like affection.

Got two meetings and an interview set up for tomorrow.

Next week is Dead Week - two days of group presentations. Then grading. Then, I can concentrate on interviews and also on writing the introductory chapter of my book proposal.

In other words, plugging along.

Thank you, Prefeitura. I don't read Spanish or Portuguese very well, but it seems that you're doing some good work down there in Brazil. Thank you for visiting.
