For the most part, last week was good as far as my Dental Assistant training. I learned a lot, had fun with my classmates and got a “B” on my exam. I’m pretty sure better management of my time could’ve resulted in me getting an “A”, though.
Taking care of my kid
I spent some time with my kids and grandkids – yay. But my youngest… well, I’m supposed to brush his orthodontia-covered teeth daily. There was no follow-through on his end or mine, and I was just too tired to step up and take measures to make sure it got done. In this area, I failed completely this week.
I was also supposed to go to jury duty. One of the staff members at ACI prepared a letter for me to forward to the court explaining that missing even one day of class, would put me very far behind, yadda yadda. I never actually got that letter to the court. I was going to mail it, but since time was short, I wanted to take it in person, but since I’m in class during the time the court is open, that didn’t work out either and now the letter is still on my kitchen counter. Fail.
There are a number of tasks I was supposed to do, which I didn’t, including working on my story. However, I didn’t neglect my family, my health (too much) or fall asleep at the wheel (since I’m lacking sleep). So this leaves me with a positive enough attitude to strive for improvement next week.
