getting through this week very nicely.. finally got some time to chill tonight. Monday I left work to the gym downtown so that I wouldn't ahve to drive back to my side of the city and then back south to where the moving job is. so I ran and worked out, say a guy I knew from about 4 years ago when I quit going to that gym. I saw a handful of same ole guys there actually. ha then went to move furniture. I have a good extra $200 on a shelf in the kitchen that I'll keep adding to and save up. $100 was from Friday's move and then plus Monday's. got home after dark and immediately got stuff ready for work the next day. Tuesday was my usual long day going to college after work. class last night went wonderfully also. they al turned in their third essay (oh that reminds me I have a stack of papers I need to grade while I'm sitting around here at night! shazam!! ha).. anyway I then assigned the fourth and last paper. The craziest thing about yesterday was I lost both plan periods, one I had to test a bunch of kids and the next i covered a class for a teacher, "leadership" class for 9th graders... ugh!. ha today was much better. kids were listening and doing. we had a meeting about our dept and I'm losing two classes of my newcomer babies for 2 separate classes of 3rd year kids who will HATE being changed into an esl class after the winger break!! ugh.. right after the meeting I went directly to my computer to ask the guy at admin about when the facilitator job would be funded!!! ha ha.. last I heard the title money was coming Oct or Nov and it's November do let's get Dan moving out of the classroom, I'm ready! :) I do work with and awesome team though. we are constantly in each other's classes, making copies if needed during class, and we'll cover each other's classes etc.. all good. I'll miss 'em but otherwise I'm ready I'm ready put me in coach! I'm including a photo of what I wore to the wedding reception last week. I was happy to have a chance to wear the shirt I bought in NYC last year with some old Cole Haan shoes I still own and never wear. but the occasion was just right. I was at a store afterwards and some older black guy passed me and said, man I like those shoes! another pic is of a jacket I got in the mail today.
