Week in Review – June 12, 2011

This has been a pretty good week. At school we just finished up the academic portion of the year, grades closed on Friday and everyone is ready for school to be done and over with. The students are done Thursday morning, so it could be a long week, but it will be over before I realize it.

It seems hard to believe that after Friday, I really am voluntarily leaving a good job and striking off into the unknown. It is a little scary, but I believe that it is a good scary.

The knee is coming along better than I thought it would, I keep pushing it, so that it stays on the other side of being sore, but like they say “use it or loose it”. I plan to wear the damn thing out 🙂 and not let it sit there and rot. I was able to walk a total of 5 miles yesterday and am doing my physical therapy exercises. The Physical Therapist kicked my butt this week, but that is what I wanted her to do. I know that I am fat and out of shape, now to do something about it.

I found a blog theme that I rather like, while I am searching for the new focus for One Foot In Reality. I kind of have a general sense of the direction I am headed, but we will see how it pans out over the summer. So there are changes coming to One Foot In Reality.

Below is are my top 10 posts for the week:

  1. Mobile Me Review
  2. Evernote Review
  5. Evernote as a Task Manager
  6. Opus Domini – Electronic Organizer Review
  7. Did You Savor This Past School Year?
  8. 8 Things to do When Leaving a Job
  9. I Got Rid of My iPhone
  10. A Foot In Two Worlds
The only real surprise post is the Classroom Fiefdoms, I wrote this back in January 2010 and all of sudden it is getting a lot of hits? I didn’t realize this until today, I am going to have to investigate where the traffic is coming from.  As usual most of the page views have been in the tech world. I imagine with Apple’s new iCloud coming out soon that my Mobile Me Review will start loosing ground as my most popular post.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and please be patient as I search for a better way during my transition from an active educator to semi-retirement.
