So delighted to say that she got offered her firest choice of course - Modern Languages and she will be doing it in UCD (University College Dublin) which is where I also went!
    Congratulations to Laura! How time flies!

    Summer has ended for me and this week, we're having meetings all day, every day. It stinks but what's worse, the plastic stuff on the bottom of my car has decided to fall off! It just started dragging on the road... I'm going to have to get it removed and replaced. And last but not least, I woke up this morning with a burst eye vessel, which is painless but absolutely awful to look at.

    So, my week hasn't been lovely.. but it could have been worse. I'm hanging in there!

    Well, the car is driveable and will be fixed on Wednesday - with me being about $300 poorer! The eye is still looking gross. Hopefully that will be cleared up by Tuesday when I have to walk into a classroom!

    It's a new semester! So how was your first day in the classroom? Hope your eye improved!

    Well, it has been a crazy first few weeks!

    My eye took a HECK of a lot longer to improve than I thought. I thought it would take a few days. It took over TWO WEEKS! But it did heal up.

    I am still turning in circles due to my crazy schedule this semester. This is our first semester with night classes, and our first semester with Monday / Wednesday classes (we used to just have Mon / Wed / Fri classes and Tues / Thurs classes. So I have....

    1 class that meets once a week on Monday
    1 class that meets on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
    1 class that meets on Monday and Wednesday
    1 class that meets once a week on Wednesday
    2 classes that meet on Tuesday and Thursday

    I can't tell whether I'm coming or going!

    I also got to go on a professional development trip last week to Atlanta which gave me an extra-long holiday (I had lots of fun while I was there!), but it also threw me even more off-kilter.

    I'll make it though!

    Glad to hear your eye is better!

    Sounds like you have a very busy semester lined up Soda. I'm just getting to grips with my new timetable as well. Atlanta sounds fun. I only passed through Atlanta Airport 7 years ago when we were going to see Glenn in LA. I would love to visit for a few days as I'm a big 'Gone With The Wind' fan.
