things proceed apace

Tomorrow is inspection day on both houses. We're not expecting any surprises either place, but that's why they would be called surprises if they show up.

I spent most of the week trying to get the various bits of paperwork assembled and filled out for applying for an IL teaching license. It's a pain, because they don't have a true reciprocal license agreement with anybody, and so it means that I have to go through the application and evaluation process all over again. This on top of teaching applications really meaning that you have to go through the whole things twice for every school, once for the district's HR office and again with the principal of the individual school.

We spent yesterday visiting some cousins of mine in High Point, plus my sister & brother-in-law. The latter two then came back to our house for some additional visiting that was always planned to be overnight. They generously offered to go let us have fun (by watching the film version of Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix) while they babysat. 'Twas a good adaptation, although Kirstin & both pity anybody who walks into it without a thorough knowledge of the previous films -- or even better the books.

Speaking of books, this Friday is Release Day for Deathly Hallows. The Leaky Cauldron (an excellent source of news, although less usable after they made it bright and shiny a couple years back) has a prediction quiz for events that may or may not happen during Book VII. This is the last week that you can take it, since after Friday night you'll (theoretically) have all the answers. Those who want insight into the Harry-er parts of my brain can go look here.
