Many have asked about my teaching schedule. I don’t post it due to . . I’ll be nice and say “personal reasons”. Normally I teach closer to home. I don’t teach in November or December because I would like to enjoy my holidays too. I don’t schedule anything in January or February because of weather concerns. Well, next year I am teaching in Louisiana towards the end of February but if there’s an ice or snow problem in southwest Louisiana, I’ll be real surprised. Stranger things have happened though. We did have an ice storm once.
In October I’ll be in St. Louis, then Wichita, KS and then St. Louis again. Dang, St. Louis is a long way away and lots of back road driving and I think there might be a scary bridge. Then I’m done for 2009.
Generally, I stay within Missouri and surrounding states. So, if you want me to come teach in your area, here’s all you need to do. Find my husband a job and we’ll move and then I’ll teach in your area, which will be close to my home! 🙂 He’s a helluva, helluva, engineer; like all the jolly good fellows, he drinks his whiskey clear. He’s a Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an Engineer!
Seriously, the window guy from the local building supply store was here today and we were talking about what I want to do with my stove situation. It would just be easier to move and get a house with a gas stove. I’m the type person who could stay in one place forever and be happy. Vince on the other hand, is pretty much ready to move again as soon as the moving van drives away. In January, it will be 3 years that we’ve been here . . probably at least a year too long.
So . . find Vince a job and I’ll start packing but really, I’d prefer a relocation package that sends the packers to do it for me! 🙂 Oh, yes, I want to move where people don’t think I talk funny (which rules out everything north of here) and I want to live where we have seasons (which rules out anything too far south) and I want to live where crawfish are on the menu and I don’t like living in a town that has an interstate highway. Other than those few little requests, I’m ready . . and willing to go most anywhere. Oh . . I almost forgot . . can’t have a scary bridge. Who wants us?
In this economy, my bet is I’ll be a very old woman still living in this house and wishing for a gas stove. Could be a whole lot worse, though, huh?
