Back to School

School started for me last Thursday. I thought perhaps I'd be further along than I am right now, but I'll probably start this year perpetually behind like I did last year. I am thrilled, however, that I'll get to stay in my room for the second year in a row this year. That is a first since I've been at this school. I had to unpack and install 22 new computers. I've been doing a little painting on a few things. There's still lots of cleaning to be done. Not to mention that I have to create complex lesson plans for my three subjects that I'm teaching - including English this year. Ugh!!! I mean, I can write. I understand the rules of grammar. I'm just not sure I can or want to teach it to others. But I just have to stick it out two more years. Our librarian is retiring then and I'll be finished with my degree by then. (If teaching English doesn't kill me first.)

So I guess I should give you news on the dating front. I'm still talking to Thomas. (The guy from eharmony that lives in Colorado.) He seems quite interested in me. He calls me often and we talk on the phone or online daily. It's really nice to feel pursued. The only issue is that we won't be able to meet in person for another month because of our schedules. I do like him a lot. He's intelligent and honest which seems to be a rare find these days. I like the fact that he is the one calling me and I'm not necessarily doing all the chasing. I just wish we would have the opportunity to meet in person sooner.

In other news, Josh wrecked his car again. He's o.k. but there's some good damage to the front corner. Luckily it was still fully insured. I was going to cancel the full coverage because I just paid off the second loan I had on it, but hadn't gotten to it. I doubt we'll get much out of it but we'll see. We're still waiting to hear from the claim company to see if they'll pay for the repair or total it. If that's the case I have this weekend only to get him a new car. Talk about perfect timing. There goes the new counter for the kitchen.

Well, it's late and I need to go to bed. Will try to post more often this year. Maybe I'll get a few readers back.

At least he was not hurt. Perhaps he needs a refresher course : - )

I truly hope all works out well with the guy in Colorado. What is meant to be, will be.
