Clearly, I never update my blog, but now seems as good a time as any.

My work life has really hit the skids. I was assigned to the school where I'm at at the very start of September, and I'm teaching the subject that I trained in, unlike last year. Fantastic! Except for two major things:
1. The school that I was at...

Thanks, Spiffy. We're doing okay. I appreciate your thoughfulness.

Hope all is well in your world too. Did you get the Edmonton/Calgary thing worked out?

Going back to the town I grew up in for a wedding. It should be a white-trash good time!

Convocation is on Monday--I can't wait!

I'll try and have a more coherent update soon--I should be packing right now.

I tried not to be a total dork during dinner but it really got to me, Spiffy. I couldn't help but get a little misty over my pumpkin soup.

My once-a-month blog update! YAAAY! tongue

School is going great. I'm almost half-way finished this semester, and I'll be starting my teaching practicum in about a month's time. All I know right now is that I'll be teaching at a Catholic high school here in the city--which doesn't narrow it down as much as I'd like...

Travels went well, only I feel rough this morning. Long flight and flight delays at the start followed by overstuffing myself with my favorite Chinese take-away before bed last night....can do very bad things to one's body.
