The following was written in a random moment of staring out the window.... on the back of a scrap of paper no less.
"I'm staring out the window of my classroom - The weather outside is yuck (read this as cold and drizzly). I sound like a rusty hinge and watever I have hasn't done much for my asthma either. Usually if I get sick it is the end of November... but I'm think that the weather is about the same right now.. so this could be my november cold. At any rate, everyone one else seems to have had this one, so perhaps its simply my turn. At any rate, I'm on the mend and trying to get enough liquids into me.
My stuff finally arrived although there were a few moments of drama when I called the one location to see if it was still waiting to go and they said it wasn't anywhere in their warehouse - so after a bit of panic we discovered that it was already here and so I'm still in the throes of unpacking. A piece was missing for my bed, so everything is in choas and room looks like Hurricane Ike has been through... but all my shirts are on hangers.
Back to the view from the window - aside from rain - there is a soaring seagull, a fluttering (Nunavut) flag, and a water truck ambling from house to house in the distance. Anyways.. back to writing tests and quizzes for me.
The rest of this is being written as I type... The stew is on the boil and nearly ready to eat.. or rather its ready to eat, but the stew in my bowl is still too hot to eat unless you are keen on having a burnt toung. I don't feel like I've made enough progress on the unpacking side of things. But I'm going to have to do something.. because right now there is a pile of junk on my bet. The current outdoor temperature is 0.5 C., the dogs are howling (or is it wolves) and a young picture of Mr. Jack Henry... whom I believe I owe a phone call this weekend (and to his lovely tupperware giving mother).... Sigh.. where do the hours go... there is so much to do and so little time.
But tonight I really need to get there soon.. in hopes of getting better because I'm sick of being sick and I'm sick, sick.. (not siksik)... so good night...
