I blew NaBloPoMo already...

I didn't post yesterday so the posting everyday in November is already blown. That's okay though. It takes the pressure off.

There's enough other pressure. Today I received a bag of relaxing tea from my Montessori training program as a gentle reminder that I have a ton of work that is due in two and a half weeks. Haven't done any of it. Also received a letter in the mail from Master Gardeners reminding me that I have until December 31 to complete my 20 hours of service I owe them. I think I've got 15-17 hours to go.

Instead of doing those things, I working on making origami cranes. Next weekend is the school fair and my class's booth is going to try to get 1000 origami cranes made to send to the Tohoku region of Japan. Great idea except only one of my students knows how to make origami cranes. No one else does, including me. I just made my first one from start to finish EVER. I always handed it off to someone else to finish around step 14. That's where the frustration sets in. Today I stuck with it and did the last four steps. Hurray for YouTube how-to videos!
