Ruby Tuesday

Killer Tuesday is more like it.  I have to work from 7:30 to 2:30 then have a mandatory faculty “book study” (like we don’t have enough to do without having to read books about how to be a great teacher) from 2:30 to 3:30.  I have to be at the home of my Hospital/Home school kiddo from 4:00 to 5:00 and then back to school for an ROTC Booster Club meeting from 5:30 to 6:30.  Looks like a twelve hour day from the time I leave for work until I get home.

I don’t like these mandatory book studies we’re having.  In theory, it sounds good.  Read a book on school time and then meet once a month for a “book study” session.  In reality, I read about half of it at home a couple of weeks ago and read the other half yesterday evening but found that I’d forgotten most of the first half.  (sigh)  I mean, really, how do you expect us to sit around reading books at work when I usually can’t even find time to go to the bathroom?

I hope oldest DS doesn’t move out today without me having a chance to say goodbye.  He was packing up his panel truck yesterday afternoon and getting ready to move to Florida with his girlfriend.  He moved in here a year and a half ago to stay “for a couple of months”.  I love him but will be sooo glad to see him moving out.  He’s supposed to take a sleeper sofa, dining room table and chairs and a half dozen cabinets and drop them off at the cabin for us.  I hope it all works out for him but I don’t put much stock in “internet romances”.  He and his girlfriend have only gotten together a few times but they talk and IM and visit on a web cam constantly.

He’ll be leaving Holly and the twins behind but I don’t think they’ll notice too much.  We’ve raised the twins for the last six years so they think of DH and I as their parents and Holly still lives with her mother.  True, she’s over here almost every weekend with her father but I’m usually the one who watches her.

I’d better hit the shower and get this day going.  I’d rather sit here and blog for a few more minutes.  Don’t really want to tackle today but I don’t have much choice.  The last thing I need is to start a killer day by running late.
