project report

Most of my first full week off from students was spent painting our bedroom and bathroom. We just moved all the furniture back into the bedroom; putting the fixtures back into the bathroom will have to wait until tomorrow, as I have to go buy a couple shorter bolts for the new light and because mounting the towel bars & such will require use of the drill. Needless to say, at 9:45, Leo's asleep.

Pictures coming sometime relatively soon, after everything's put back up, including all the art.

It's the first full week of my summer break, which won't be much of one. Tomorrow I'm going to start painting our bedroom (one of two that we didn't do right after moving in), and expect that it'll be a 3-day project. After that's done, I get to start working on writing the lab manual for my AP class for next year. My goal is to have at least the first semester, and really the entire year, done when kids walk in for the first full day of class.

I'm back at Centennial next year, but am still dealing with some annoyances related to the out-of-state license, and if I can't get it sorted out, then I may not be able to go back for year 3. Unfortunately, it seems like I'm probably going to have to go through a lateral-entry program again.

The weather has been very, very, very wet around here, although we've survived it relatively unscathed. The biggest problem has been unrelated to the weather, which is that last weekend I was working on re-doing the guts of one of our toilets and cracked the tank.

Incidentally, between the move and a provider buyout, my e-mail address has changed a couple times in the last year. For those without a post-NC address, it's the same handle, but now at comcast (dot) net.
