.... about living alone is not having someone to help when things go wrong. I have had a frustrating week. See previous posts. And today when the guy who has sometimes mowed my yard came over to mow for me (since I couldn't get the mower started on Thursday and since I have TONS of work still to do before school starts), he couldn't get the mower to start either. Wahhhh. Frustration. It's a new-ish mower, so it shouldn't be having major problems. Now I have to find someone who can help me get it to a repair shop to see what is wrong. I think I need a truck! My Honda Civic won't hold anything that homeowners need!
The good part was the guy who was going to mow felt bad and called me later to say he would bring his own mower over to do the yard for me. Now that was very sweet! So the neighbors won't disown me for another week yet. And maybe by then I will have time to get my mower checked out.
The rest of the day was spent at the office seeing students who began arriving yesterday. Registration continues on Monday and Tuesday, and classes start on Wednesday. I'm getting close to being ready, but I'm not quite there yet. I'm just praying that all of my classes make the limit to be offered. I have one that tends to be questionable because it's an elective, not a requirement for anyone. I always hold my breath until I get a few people sign up for it. I'm not sure what would happen if I didn't get to offer it. I'd have to fill in my load with something else that I might not like as well or that I haven't taught in ages. I can't imagine why someone wouldn't want to take Editorial & Opinion Writing, can you??
