Must keep head above water
That's my two boys there. I haven't spent much time with them lately though since I'm always at work. I'm heading into my eighth week with ZERO days off and I'm about to explode. I woke up this morning panicky because there is simply too much to get done in too little time. The deadline for my trucking course manual was Thursday and though I thought I had it all in on Tuesday, Friday morning I received a buttload of changes that need to be done which will eat up all day today. So when am I going to get done what I was supposed to have done today? I'll just keep putting one foot in front of the other and hopefully this will all work out.
At least it's springtime. Sunny days in the 50's! Heaven. Serge opened the patio for the season. His cedars that he potted last year survived. I was certain they would perish in the harsh winter cold, but the nursery guy told Serge to saturate them well just before the first freeze and the ice would protect the roots. I didn't believe it, but it turns out he was right.
Did you know that it is illegal to leave your car unlocked here? If a cop spies your unlocked car on the street, he/she will issue a ticket, put it inside the vehicle and lock the car for you. I couldn't believe it when I heard that. Talk about a nanny state.
Here's a funny picture my student took of me with her (super bitchin') ipad 2.
There's more, but you'll have to content yourself with this for now. I shouldn't even be doing this when there is so much to get done. Have yourselves a nice weekend.
