I Haven't Fallen off the Face of the Planet

I've just been busy. Friday was the end of the regular semester. I had foolishly thought that the next few weeks before I go home would be relaxed. Well, it will be slower than the past six weeks, but I'll still be teaching about 35 classes a week.
Since I'm going home when SAT classes finish, I was not scheduled to teach children's classes for the summer. I thought that meant I would be teaching 9-1 for the next three weeks. I was half-right-- I'm teaching 9-1. And 2-6. Mondays, at least, are half-days. I suppose I'll be happy on payday, because I'm working August on an hourly basis. That will make up for the most expensive cattle class airline ticket in history.

Other than teaching, I've just started my final course for my MEd!!!! Hold your applause, hold your applause. Yes, this course I began a mere five and half years ago, it coming to a conclusion only 6 months past the technical deadline. Go waivers!

I haven't written about my personal life in a while, so here's an update. Things are fairly quiet on the Please-Be-My-X front. Right after I sent him home for the third time (but who's counting), he was emailing me on his usual stalker-esque schedule. It has petered out, though. He managed to get a job and hold it for an entire week before he sabotaged himself. When he complained to me about his mom's lack of understanding (he's squatting at her place), I told him pretty straight up that he does the same thing over and over and over, knowing what the result has been the previous umpteenth times. So, it is his fault for thinking things would be different this time. Since then, there has been near radio silence. I may even send him divorce papers soon...
I also started seeing someone about a month ago. He's really sweet and seems eager to prove that he is NOT like P-B-M-X. He's a soldier stationed about 1 1/2 hours away, so that's a little inconvenient, but we're taking turns going to see each other, so... so far so good. I have to say, it's weird to go out and have someone else pay. Good weird. :-) He's going to the field for some extended training this week and when he gets back, I'm going home, so that kind of sucks, but I'm sure I'll survive... ;-)

I do, don't I? :-) It's not like I was abused or anything, but it's nice to think about a guy and smile involuntarily instead of growl under my breath...
