So, this week I started teaching seminary. That's where the high school age kids in our ward all get together and do scripture study - this year, it's the Old Testament. Since we don't live in Utah and don't get school release time to do it, the class meets at 6:00 in the morning. It's not at my house - I never did have to clean up the dead spiders - so I do have to get up a few minutes earlier to drive over to the house where it's being held, but on the other hand the other teacher has a nice finished basement, so that's good. We've had four classes so far and I've covered some of the basic stuff - how to use the footnotes, for one - and it seems to be going well. The kids have actually behaved decently, I think because they are too tired to cause much trouble.
And I am e x h a u s t e d. But I think it will get better.
I got some glasses, so I won't have to put in my contact lenses at 5:30 in the morning (which just seems wrong to me somehow). I haven't worn glasses since I was 20 years old and had no fashion sense. I picked these little beauties up yesterday and aren't they cute?
is TOLERATION even a word?
