Licorice did not give birth, so we mated her to Bear again. We’ll see in a month…
The one high school class I teach is full of a bunch of whiners.
I finally feel like I am not drowning in my job. Barely treading water, but not drowning. Still, I’m not sure I fit into the culture at this school very well. I feel pretty alone and am having a hard time making connections with other teachers. I like most of my students, though. (The whiny high schoolers are excepted from that statement.)
The weather is getting cooler, which I like. The days are getting shorter, which I don’t like so much.
Stephan’s getting busy with work, which is great financially, but less great emotionally (for me).
Tonight, I ate for dinner Chicago-style deep-dish pizza (made by my husband) and authentic Chinese hot pot (made by some Chinese students who attend the local university. My belly is sooo full that I may not need to eat again until Saturday.
Fall break is coming up next Monday and Tuesday. I’m so glad. I so need a break. I am trying to work it so that I’m not grading papers all weekend.
How are YOU?
