Apparently calm before the storm...

School goes back Monday and so far I am NOT ready. I have a set of assignments to mark, I have lesson plans to write and I have that damned Papal Encyclical to read over again. I wish I had sashajwolf and blue_leaf in my head right now, I'd get it read AND have the right answers!

We have one of those rewards system here where you get points for shopping, Flybuys. I cashed in a pile of these points and received a D-Link wireless router. Unfortunately I didn't have quite enough computer knowledge to fully install it. I got it going but couldn't do the secure network bit. So today I hired Geeks on Wheels *g* to come and do the job for me! Half price too, since they were recommended by my ISP! And now, for the first time, I'm sitting on the couch in the living room and updating my LJ! I can't read my emails from here though, so I wonder if I ought to change to my gmail account... *shrug* whatever, for now, I'm rather excited about it. And before, while doing some class planning by the heater, I could look up a couple of things without running to the PC *g* admittedly the PC is only about 15 or 20 feet away...but now Christy and I can be using the Net at the same time!

So. I have been trying to get ready for school and do more clearing around the house, and thanks to Moth and her special and wonderful friends, re-editing Safe yet again with renewed enjoyment, using the knowledge I have gained from that crazy writing course and thereabouts. I just need a couple more weeks holiday... just two weeks but WITHOUT children, and I might just get somewhere...

Mass with the Codfish in the morning, so not looking forward to that. I'm so disappointed in him. He's such an unpleasant man. I wonder how I can find the good in him? I've tried a few ways but none of them have worked yet. He still comes across as a self-centred, egotistical, ill-mannered and, IMHO, Asperges-laden, middle-aged man. Thank God he never made the Bishop he apparently aspired to. I wonder if I could get him to read Phil Gulley? He could find out how he could be gentle, how he could be sensitive to the needs of others, how he could create community... and how he could be loved.
