Kick Start

OK, a kick start is a motorcycle thing (I used to be able to kick start a 650 Yamaha and could ride it fine… although I couldn’t stop properly without dropping the bike so I gave that up in short order). But today I’m envisioning a kick in the tush!

Yesterday’s two classes were divine. I even got a phone call today from one of my new students, to thank me for how much she learned in two hours. That really keeps me going, you know?

Now today I start an after-school kids knitting program at Dwight Rich Middle School, not very far from my house. If I had a child that age, they might attend this school, it’s in the neighborhood past mine.

This will be great fun because I will get a lot of time with the same kids, it’s several months of work with them. That will be very satisfying, because middle schoolers are a good age to control needles well and to be creative… but in my walk-in program at Foster Center I tend to lose them at that age, just when their potential is really obvious.

My helper for my yarn business is coming tonight, too… I have not worked with her since before Christmas and I’m looking forward to her help and her company.

I am trying to be gentle with myself as I recover from this bug I had. Last night was the first night I slept all the night through with no coughing jags, so it truly is getting better. I just wish I felt a little more energetic. This is just how it is, and I’m working on going slowly. So far so good!

By the way, I really want to thank everyone who leaves comments. I like to reply to everyone individually but lately I just haven’t had the emotional or physical energy to write personal notes. If you did not hear from me yet, it’s not because I didn’t see or appreciate your note… Thank you so much.
