So today I was at work for most of the day. We're counting this as an accomplishment. I didn't manage to do much more than that though. I really need to get to the grocery store and do some other errands; but I'm so wiped out from the drugs that it's all I can do not to fall asleep at work. I did get my car filled up, but only because it was way over on the E and the "You must stop for gas chicken" was up in the front cupholder squawking about the need for gas.
I've finally managed to figure out the Gettysburg Address lesson. I dropped all the PowerPoint stuff and decided to do it as another one in the Myth and Truth lessons (the others are on Independence Day
There are a number of misconceptions about the Gettysburg Address. The most famous is likely that Lincoln wrote the speech on the back of an envelope during his train ride to Pennsylvania. Since I can copy the backbone of the lesson from those original two, this should be easy to whip together now that I've finally figured out what I'm doing. At least I hope so.
I wish that I had managed to go through my notes and drafts for my book. I haven't picked it up in weeks; but there's a discussion on WPA about devising writing assignments. I'm sure that I have material that's pertinent, but I haven't been able to dig it out. Beyond that, I'm not sure if I'm supposed to share info from a working draft with someone else who's writing a book and needs the information for a similar reason. My colleagiality voice tells me to share with everyone. My business-savvy voice says don't be a fool and give your info to someone else. Keep it for yourself. I guess since I haven't had time and the thread seems to be dying, maybe I can just not worry about it. The thread does
emphasize the need for the book I'm writing. There's nothing out there that pulls things together. So at least I'm writing on a good idea.
Time to dose up on another pile of pills and get to bed.
