mid week check

things are in motion here in okc....I'm just excited to get through the next 3 weeks and starting summer of course! ha...
anyway, I had my big long day of work yesterday, and I fellow teacher picked me up to work and then took me to the college after school, and then my sister picked me up from work and took me to my other sister's house.  Her daughter has an old Ford Escort that she parked last week after my dad fixed her Mazda, so they were willing to let me drive that while I get things situated...
I went and got my pickup back today from the garage, it drove home just fine, go figure, I'm going to drive it down to my buddy's shop at some point this weekend and just leave it until he can get it going again.... his idea was to find a used transmission to put in the truck, also I feel like leaving it with him may get a chance to see what's actually wrong with it and if it's fixable etc etc.. for example new trans and clutch or just transmission etc..
When I got my truck today at the garage, my friend there recommended a chevy half ton 6 cylinder, saying the Chevrolet trucks are easier to work on than Fords... and that I shoudl be able to find something used around 2 or 3 years old with low mileage and in my price range... but I'm still going to seek out a Ford Ranger also... :)
other fyi news, I was contacted yesterday about an interview at the college for the full time position! so step two is checked, the interview. It' will be in 2 weeks and the email I was sent to confirm the time and date said it would be 2 hours and to have a 10-15 minute presentation ready teaching something from my comp 1 or 2 class.. whoah!
incredibly busy work week, getting our one on one speaking tests finished during planning , this means I get no planning time, so I'm working all I can to keep stuff graded and passed back and the copies made and stuff prepared for the next day etc... also it's getting old having the sub cover for my co teachers who had been gone all week. back Monday . UGH!
hope all are having a great spring kick off.

Truck guy!

Good luck on the job position! I'm still keeping my eyes open. My layoff was rescinded, but will most likely be at a new school next year. I'm aiming for high school.

I need a sub. I need a day off. I'm ready to curse out a few kids. Actually I did today...
