Things are starting to wind down for me at work a bit.  Jan 31 was supposed to be my last day but one of the people in my department was put on bed rest by the doctor so I ended up doing a bit of part time work which will probably extend a bit into next week.  Between that and all the additional volunteering I haven't had any additional time to work on the house stuff...sorry John.  He's been a good sport and has been furiously getting things ready, figuring out what to keep, get rid of, selling stuff, making appointments, etc.

I've really gotten into the swing of our additional ESL classes.  I am spending 3 days a week in the morning class and it really makes a difference with understanding each individual's needs and getting to know them on a personal level.  Everyone works so hard and many of them have jobs, families and busier schedules than I could imagine given the amount of time they spend on class and homework.  Everyone is also extremely friendly and welcoming.  No matter what happens I really hope to remain working with ESL students in the future.  

We also got our final round of med tests back and everything looks great.  Now let's just hope the Office of Medical Services agrees with us.

  1. Whew! I'm glad I read ahead to this posting because I was very concerned after reading your January 20 entry.
