Summer is under way
How's this for luck? Yesterday Valerie (that's her in her rally cap during the 9th inning) and I went to the Astros game and got to sit on the FIRST ROW just past the dugout. We usually sit in the cheap seats, not the cheapest, but cheap, read high. It was very exciting to sit so close to the action Unfortunately, the lineup didn't include all the best players, and the Astros lost. :-( Of course, today they won, 14-4. Losing our Saturday games and winning on Sunday has been the routine for us this season. I think we have only been to one winning game. As much as I love the Astros, they SUCK on Saturdays!
After the game, I came home and worked on assigments for one of my library science courses until midnight. These two classes are going to keep me so busy this summer. I am so glad that I couldn't afford to take a third class.
In addition to taking classes, I am hoping to find a new teaching job, one that doesn't require an hour commute. I have one interview, which I thought went very well, but they didn't call me and offer me the job, so I guess it didn't go as well as I thought. Then I went to the HISD job fair on Friday, and it was a big disorganized mess and waste of time. I have applied for about fifteen jobs on the HISD website, so maybe I will get a job somewhere closer to home. I really don't want to have to drive by myself.
So, despite being at the beginning of summer vacation, I don't think I will have that much time for vacation fun this summer. I will, however, go to some more Astros games (maybe they will win at least one of the ones that I attend), go to some movies (I saw MI3 last week and will blog about it later), and read books (children's lit for my class and adult lit for my pleasure, blogging will follow). If you have nothing better to do, stay tuned and maybe I will say something worth reading.
