Sleep 8-17: awake 1-57, REM 1-10, Light 6-33, deep 34m. Great amount, just low on deep sleep.

Getting ready to go to the clinic today. I am sure I have 2-4 students. Hope to get out by 4 since I need to get working on packing. Leftovers for dinner.

Doc called and talked to me today. He is moving, would like to sell the practice/clinic but no buyer, and wanted me to know. He is now considering having NPs work the clinic instead. Had 2 students and we were kept busy. Got out a bit after 4 pm. Went by and got a tutorial on doing my hair since it did not want to do this morning. Have worked on some of my packing.

Thanks, LB and NM.

Got up to a text from doc saying he will cover the clinic today. That gives me extra time today to run to campus and pick up a book I need and get all my packing done. We leave first thing tomorrow.

Sleep: 4-26; awake 1-4, REM 1-3, light 2-5, deep 1-18. Good deep, but needed longer. My fault as I got reading.

Quick run to campus and then home to finish getting ready to go. Thankful not to have clinic today.

Awesome that you got a bit of a break and can spend time packing and making sure you have what you need without rushing it as much.

Thanks NM and Tomi. No relaxation or vaca mode yet.

While I was on campus, another faculty resigned. I had expected her resignation, but still it is a blow. We are officially down 7 now. You would think it would be an apparent crisis for administration, but nooo they are just now scheduling appointments with the 4 we interviewed almost 2 weeks ago. Shocked

We have also been told that our pre-nursing advisor will be let go September 1. She advises almost 400 students. No-one can tell us who will advise them, because it darn sure won't be the faculty who are left! I told the Dean that with the clinic advertising for a FT NP, I was starting to wonder if that was where I should be.

I am slowly getting packed. Part of the issue is Florida before the cruise, Cruise, and then WDW after the cruise require different things. So I am making sure I only need to get into the small suitcase tomorrow night and I am trying packing cubes for the WDW stuff so I do not have to get into it on the cruise. I am trying to limit what I take since I always overpack.

Vaca mode will start when we hit the airport tomorrow!

Mostly packed. Just have the last minute stuff to add in the morning. I am definitely ready for some vaca time.

Have a great time.  

Sorry about all the resignations at work.  Goodness.

Is there a common denominator with those?

Two retired and the other 4 decided the benefits of a teaching schedule did not out way the low salary. They all got nurse jobs for >$100,000. The mandate to enroll >100 students for the fall, no annual raise, and a push for everyone to share their faith journey did not help either.

Sleep: 4-41, Awake 1-23, REM 33m, light 3-52, Deep 16m. Not long enough and quality not good. I am tired, but woke up when DH got up, I just could not go back to sleep so I got up. Weight is bouncing around still. I am back in the 160's. The goal is to come back from vacation at or below what I weighed today. I know I will walk much more and in the past I have been able to drop weight even while eating well. I will continue to track for WW and am going to allow 1 glass of wine as a 0 point option like I do avocados. Anything more will be tracked. So far I am not dipping into weekly, activity, or rollover points. Very Happy

Need to get ready and finish packing. I need to get 3 syllabi in order and sent off for the class that we are changing from 8 weeks to 16 weeks. Hopefully I can get them sent before the airport, but if not I will finish them up while I am waiting to board.

First class upgrade! TSA pre! I am ready for vaca mode to hit. We have a car meeting us at the airport for the hour ride to the hotel which is near the port. Our friends arrive about 2 hours after we do, so we will have time to get settled and possibly a power nap if needed. Seafood is on the menu for tonight.

Thanks, Tomi and Annieh. On the ship and had a relaxing first day. Got the 3 syllabi sent before we boarded and got the weekly course announcements sent while waiting to board. Restless sleep last night, hoping for better tonight.

Thanks NM and TW. Today we stopped at the cruise lines private island. It was rainy and cool. Friends and DH opted to go out to the island. I decided to get my grading done. Got steps in and got rained on at one point. All of it is done so I can enjoy the rest of the trip. Nice nap in the afternoon too.

DDIL1 is going in for an emergency c-section. She will not stop bleeding. Phillip is 25 weeks 4 days. Positive thoughts and prayers appreciated.

Pedi - I’m praying hard for both of them. Was so wishing for more time. In your opinion, odds at this age?

Sending you huge hugs and prayers for calm assurance.
