I haven't taken a lot of pictures lately, other than a wedding I photographed a few weeks ago. That was a lot of pictures, and I am still going through them. I have to turn them over this coming weekend, so the pressure's on. I love photographing weddings, but hate editing the pictures after. The money is good, though.
I'm in my evening class, watching the students take a test. There are only 8 students in this class, so it is kind of a nice switch from my daytime class of 30 students. Tuesdays, when I have both, are long days. I got here at 5:45 this morning, and will not be done until about 8:30 this evening. I did go home for a few hours after lunch and caught a nap, so I'm good to go.
What have I been doing? Working a lot. I have all these projects I am juggling, and it was a busy start to the semester. I finally finished one big one--writing the curriculum for a new program we are starting next year. That took two years, and I finally submitted it to the curriculum committee last week. That takes a lot of the pressure off, and now I am looking forward to going to the hospital with my students and just being a teacher for a while.
We are getting regular updates on the Thailand house, and it is coming along nicely. We were fortunate that we paid and had everything delivered just after we left, as the big rains finally came, and washed out one of the bridges on the road from the city. They have gotten a lot done--painting, floor tile, bathrooms, windows, and are now working on the trim.
Here's what the tile looks like, going down the big hall toward the back of the house. Nim, our photographer, tends to not see "the big picture" and mostly sends us pics of piles of stuff, or a corner of a room. I am curious to see what it all looks like.
We will go back just after spring semester ends in May and spend at least a month there. Everything should be done by then, other than furnishing the house. I can't wait.
