Parent conferences for four hours last night (35 sets of parents?) and another four next Tuesday night (followed in each case by full teaching days managed by largely comastose teachers). Alexander Hamilton and the origins of the American financial system for the 1oth grade. References to write for students and applications of my own to do. A One Church, One Book study (over dinner in various homes) of Mere Christianity next Sunday night ~ accidentally let myself be roped into leading one of the discussions so I have to reread the book, which I am re-remembering I do not much care for. Can't figure out why that is. Colonial America projects for the 8th grade. Teacher's lounge arguments about whether Israel should accept money from American evangelicals whose vision of a Jewish future differ rather decidedly from the Jewish one. The Abassid Caliphate and the Goldern Age of Baghdad for the 9th graders. Lost debit/credit card. Three college tuition payments coming up. Gee, I wonder why that second floor toilet has never been repaired.
Salvation! ~ it's time for Grey's.
I depart with a photo of the beloved Lovely Daughter pondering the Oregon coastline.
