Spring Update

Yeah, yeah, it’s been over two months. Quite frankly, our lives have been so busy and filled up to overflowing that I’ve had less time for pretty much everything. But, I’ve got a few minutes here to rant and ramble a bit, so here goes.

First of all, school. March and April are by far the most stressful months of the year for teachers. Pressure is mounting for the upcoming state tests. The new addition to the school has been completed and six classes had to move to new locations. All of this means more meetings, more computer work, and less time to actually be teaching. It has been a real headache, plain and simple, and I am getting a serious case of burn out. I simply must cut back on my workload next year, that’s all there is to it.

Deana and both boys were sick a week ago, each of them down with strep. Luckily, I made it through with only a sinus infection. We’re on the mend now, but it couldn’t have happened at a worse time.

We concluded a gospel meeting with Kevin Presley last week. Crowds were huge! I can’t recall the last time I saw the building so full. The singing was really uplifting, for sure. It was nice seeing so many friends from different congregations.

I’ve been reading more comics lately. Partially, this is because of an excellent sale on hardcovers and trades a month or so ago. It’s also due to the fact that after working on computers all day, playing PC or 360 games loses a bit of its appeal. Especially when my connection has been flaky and I am sicking of troubleshooting it. I can’t bring myself to fix cables at home too…

Reread Watchmen in hardcover, with the new coloring. It looked amazing; Dave Gibbons has one of the cleanest lines you’ll ever see. The movie was better than I expected. The adult elements were pushed a bit far for my tastes, but that it what the comic was known for, so it was hardly surprising. I look forward to watching it at home, since the theater I saw it at was slightly out of focus and the sound appeared to be coming from a 1950’s record player.

Work at Co-Optimus and Let The Bible Speak is going well. Both of these projects are keeping me busy, maybe even a bit too busy.

I’d write more, but just got another tech phone call. Someone’s SMART Board isn’t playing sound anymore…
