Today required caffeine. The only caffeinated beverage I can still drink is tea, and I only get one cup a day of that, so on days like today I have to take a caffeine pill instead of enjoying a second or third delicious cup of tea.
I had two classes to get ready for and papers to grade this morning. Then my students arrive for the first class and we talked all about writing critique essays. A
My second class starts at 2:30. At 1:30, as I was finished up some grading, two of my students arrived, much to my surprise. By the time they realized they were an hour early, their mother had driven off, so they had to call her back on my phone. Not long after that, another student arrived. He knew that class didn’t start till 2:30, but it was more convenient for his dad to drop him off at 2:00. Nothing I could do about that! Once class started, I waited a little for my last two students before remembering that they are out of town!
During our break, I talked to Flynn about his interview. He is waiting to hear back. We are praying he gets the job.
I don’t believe I have mentioned what my husband is doing this week. As he often does at this time of year, he is taking a “vacation” from his job at the university in order to work long hard days doing floor contracts. Two different preschools hire him to redo their floors twice a year. There are also two car dealerships. It is grueling and tiresome work, but it helps keep this family afloat, and I am so thankful.
I have been working on revising one of my novels for the past week or so. A publisher requested it but then never got back to me, so I am going back through it before sending it out again. I am happy to say that I am a better writer now than I was when I first wrote this story, and it is quite satisfying to go through and improve what I like to think was already a strong story. Even though I’d rather be writing than revising, I am loving every minute of this!
