It’s been a busy week . . . I’ve been subbing at the college (teaching English as a second language) . . . and though it’s lots of fun, it does mean that we all have to be out of the house an hour earlier and the kids are THAT much more tired. Of course, whenever I sub, it never fails that one of the kids gets sick too, prompting a last minute scramble for what to about childcare (one of the problems with being a sub is that you can’t really call a sub!!!). Thankfully, the kids were better very quickly, and we’ve been having a good week since then.
It’s a GREAT group of students at the college right now – while I’m still glad I’m not working all the time, it’s been a lot of fun to be in front of a class again. I got to teach poetry to the high level writing class – and they loved it! (The intermediate grammar class isn’t nearly as impressed with me teaching them the difference between the present perfect and the present perfect continuous tense 😉 ).
Anyhow, one more day to go, and then the routine returns more back to normal around here . . .
