A short week

That will be both a pain and a relief. It will take forever to get my substitute plans done, but at least I'll get to spend three days in San Antonio. I had intentions to go up to school this weekend, but it fell through. Yesterday was wasted after waiting for the lunch "date." Today I went to church and then my brother listened to Josh's car which was making a squealing noise when it started. I had to wait for him to get to the shop this afternoon so I could take it to him to tighten. Luckily it was an easy fix. By the time that was done, I needed to go to the grocery store. Believe it or not, I got away with spending under $60. I got a few things to get by the next few days and some stuff for Josh to cook while I'm gone. I needed to do laundry this weekend, but I didn't. I'll start it tomorrow and start packing.

I started crocheting again. It is nice and calming. I figured that I would need to make a lot of my Christmas presents this year since money will be tight. Scarves for everyone! It will keep me busy on the plane and during down times at convention. I have some puzzle books to take and I've been re-reading some of my Sue Grafton books. I have a ton of papers to grade so I'll probably take those as well, but I'm sure they will just go along for the ride. I did realize some good news this weekend. Monday Oct. 8 was listed in the school calendar as an inservice day for teachers, but it is actually a comp day for those of us that attended a workshop during the summer. That means I get the day off as well. That is awesome.

Well, there's not much more to report here. It's been another dull weekend. I should enjoy it while I can. Next weekend I'll be traveling back from San Antonio. The weekend after that is marching contest. The next weekend is both a speech tournament and Josh's musical. The last weekend is another tournament. Well, I should try to go to bed, but I'm not sure that I'll be able to sleep any time soon. I made the mistake of having a coke this afternoon. It will probably keep me up for a while. We'll see how it goes. I think my cat that sleeps with me is ready for bed. She has been sleeping with me for the last few weeks now. She stay in my room until about 5:30 in the morning which is when she always wants out. I hope for more pleasant dreams tonight. I had some not so nice ones last night.

We were just discussing at work the difficulty in meeting good men. We were wondering if it was the area, society today, or if we just aren't looking in the right places. It would be nice to find some answers.

Missing you today. I hope your day went well and that teaching wasn't too exhausting. I look forward to reading about it tonight. Take care.
